Comey Insinuated Trump Was Under Investigation, Turns Out He's NOT

submit to reddit

It appears as if disgraced former FBI Director James Comey may have falsely given the impression Trump was under investigation.

This new report comes to us from the chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

On Thursday, Senator Chuck Grassley suggested that former FBI Director James Comey told him President Trump is not a subject of the bureau’s Russia investigation.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley hinted that Comey made the revelation about Trump during a closed, classified session following a committee hearing last week. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein also attended.

“Shortly after Director Comey briefed us, I tweeted that he should be transparent. I said he should tell the public what he told Senator Feinstein and me about whether the FBI is or is not investigating the President,” Grassley said.

Trump fired Comey on Tuesday. In a letter to Comey, Trump claimed that the newly fired FBI chief had told him on three separate occasions that he was not a target of the bureau’s probe.

“On Tuesday, the President’s letter said that Director Comey told him he was not under investigation. Senator Feinstein and I heard nothing that contradicted the President’s statement.”

Grassley noted that Comey declined to say in the public hearing last week whether or not Trump was a subject of the investigation. Comey warned the lawmakers not to read too much into his refusal to say either way whether Trump was a target of the probe.

Grassley then called on the FBI to “confirm to the public whether it is or is not investigating the President.”

“Because it has failed to make this clear, speculation has run rampant,” he added.

Feinstein followed up Grassley’s comments and appeared to endorse them.
