On Thursday, disgraced former FBI Director James Comey testified before Congress. His testimony centered around the dubious liberal claims that President Trump “obstructed justice.”
The take away? James Comey has a lot of hurt “feelings” and “concerns” but offered zero proof of obstruction and actually vindicated Trump instead.
In fact the only person Comey may have incriminated is former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, stunning the Senate panel by revealing she pressured him to tone down the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
But there was absolutely NO bombshell against Trump, destroying Democrat (and leftist media) hopes.
That ends it, folks.
No network has invested more in fake news hype about Trump’s imminent downfall than CNN.
And to add insult to injury, CNN was forced to make an embarrassing retraction of their “BREAKING” mega-claim — that Comey would dispute Trump’s claim that he was told he was not under investigation.
Here was their claim Wednesday, which became the “bombshell” headline of the day.

A breathless Gloria Borger, CNN’s chief political analyst, took an even bolder stance during an on-air appearance:
“Comey is going to dispute the president on this point if he’s asked about it by senators, and we have to assume that he will be,” she said Tuesday. “He will say he never assured Donald Trump that he was not under investigation, that that would have been improper for him to do so.”
Then — with CNN’s exclusive bombshell ready to explode — Comey laid an egg on them in his released statement last night:
Prior to the January 6 meeting, I discussed with the FBI’s leadership team whether I should be prepared to assure President-Elect Trump that we were not investigating him personally. That was true; we did not have an open counter-intelligence case on him. We agreed I should do so if circumstances warranted. During our one-on-one meeting at Trump Tower, based on President Elect Trump’s reaction to the briefing and without him directly asking the question, I offered that assurance.
FAKE NEWS: EXPOSED.
And reiterated that Trump was never under investigation at today’s hearing:
CNN was forced to issue this embarrassing retraction — which was ridiculed even by the liberal Washington Post:
CORRECTION AND UPDATE: This article was published before Comey released his prepared opening statement. The article and headline have been corrected to reflect that Comey does not directly dispute that Trump was told multiple times he was not under investigation in his prepared testimony released after this story was published.
Why does anyone still believe CNN after so many lies and distortions in their twisted attempt to bring down Trump?
