Rush Limbaugh noticed something that slipped by everyone else yesterday. He heard Comey to admit that Russia did not supply Wikileaks with Podesta’s emails or phone calls.
Comey said something interesting today that nobody’s picked up on yet because they’re so distracted by this other stuff, which I can understand. He was asked specifically if WikiLeaks was furnished their information on Podesta and the phone calls by the Russians, and Comey said no. Well, now, everybody on the Democrat side believes that the Russians gave Assange and WikiLeaks everything they hacked.
Again, I want to remind everybody — the truth of this has not been mentioned yet — Podesta was not hacked. Podesta fell for a phishing scam. Now, you might, on a loose definition, call it a hack. But it’s not a hack in the sense that you and I think of hacks. Nobody got into Podesta’s computer. He let them in. He invited them in, unknowingly. Russia did not deal directly with WikiLeaks, Comey said. They had a cut-out, which is an intermediary. Well, who was that? WikiLeaks has insisted that they didn’t get anything from Russia, that Russia was not their source, and Comey confirmed that today.
But the entire investigation into Trump is based on his collusion with the Russians and the fact that the Russians supplied Wikileaks with the incriminating evidence. At least two sources within Wikileaks said that the leaks came from disgruntled democrats.
RUSH: Senator Grassley of Iowa has just tweeted in the last few minutes the following: “FBI Director Comey needs to be transparent and tell the public what he told me about whether he is or is not investigating the president.” What does that mean? Grassley just tweeted this within the last half hour, and apparently, if I’m judging this the way a normal person would, Grassley’s watching Comey and thinks Comey’s saying something different than what he told him.
Apparently Grassley says that Comey told him something about whether or not the FBI’s investigating the president that differs from what Comey said today. Comey also says — get this — that he launched the FBI investigation of Trump and Russia in July. July? That’s before Trump even had the nomination. Why were the Russians helping Trump when he might not even be the nominee? This is getting even screwier by the minute as things continue to unfold here.
This marks the first time that Comey has said that the investigation began in July. As Rush pointed out, Trump wasn’t even the nominee yet, but something that has me wondering is the timing of the investigation. The Obama administration was turned down for a wire tap and suddenly the FBI is called in? Something is rotten in Denmark.
