Grassley Seeking Answers to Comey Contradictions on Flynn Interview

The one thing that Democrats did not expect when they pushed to have a special counsel investigation of Donald Trump, his campaign and the allegations of collusion with Russia to influence the election, was that they would be the subjects of other investigations. What they didn’t count on was the congressional Republicans would not go down silently.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) is Chair of the Senate Judiciary Committee and he is demanding answers from the DOJ and FBI for the apparent contradictions made by former FBI Director James Comey concerning the interview with former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

(Fox News) – The chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee wrote Friday to the FBI and Department of Justice, pushing the agencies for answers about the interview of former national security adviser Michael Flynn, citing an “apparently contradiction” between what former FBI Director James Comey said to the committee, and what he has said since.

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, sent the letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, saying that in a March 2017 briefing, Comey told lawmakers that “the agents saw no change in his demeanor or tone that would say [Flynn] was being untruthful” about the contents of a call with the then-Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak. According to committee staff, Comey also said that the FBI agents “saw nothing that led them to believe [he was] lying.”

But Flynn later pleaded guilty in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe to making false statements to the FBI in that interview. He also lost his job at the White House after he was said to have misled Vice President Mike Pence about the discussion with Kislyak…

James Comey has acted like a spider spinning a web in which to entrap and destroy his prey (Donald Trump) but it appears over the past month that Comey’s web of lies, deceit and corruption is entangling himself instead of Trump. He has been caught in a growing number of lies and corruption and many are calling for his prosecution.
