Donald Trump – Christopher Wray – Confirmation Hearing

Ahhh I love the smell of my morning coffee just as much as I love the smell of someone vowing to the Senate Judiciary Committee that he would in fact, not break the law for President Donald Trump.

Could it be that Trump’s pick to head the FBI is just another James Comey type?

Christopher-A-Wray-Confirmation-Hearing-7-12-17-Crime_Shop

At the confirmation hearing today, Christopher A. Wray pledged to protect the bureau from political pressure.

His opening line: “My loyalty is to the Constitution and the rule of law.” Apparently in reference to Trump’s attempt to try to get James Comey to vow his loyalty to the newly elected president.

Christopher has also been quoted as stating  that the investigation into Russian election interference and possible links to Trump’s campaign was and is not a “witch hunt.”

When Christopher was asked about how he would respond should the president asked him to do something unlawful or unethical, he responded, “First I would try to talk him out of it, and if that failed, I would resign.”

He also stated that it would be highly unlikely that he, himself would meet with Trump privately one on one, which I would assume would be to protect and ensure the integrity of the FBI, boldly showing that Trump would not be able to compromise the FBI’s independence, you know that whole bit of not caving to political pressure and all, that one thing Trump attempted to get James Comey to do.

“You have to be able to stand firm to your principles”  Christopher was quoted as saying.

He might be a good chap after all, regardless the Democrats pushed him in every direction that they could just to make sure which I completely understand.

The President no matter how special he feels he is or how entitled he feels he should be, cannot have a yes man who has pledged his loyalty to the President serving as the director of the FBI.

The FBI must remain completely free and independent of political pressure and the head of the FBI must be loyal to the Constitution of the United States and the Rule of Law.

Who knows perhaps it was just lip service or he is a pretty okay chap.

Only time will tell to know that for sure.

Personally, I do not believe that anyone so far can touch James Comey in terms of truly understanding the delicate relationship between law enforcement and the communities that they serve.

He truly understood how law enforcement and communities really need to understand one another and work together in an effort to combat both crime and police brutality/corruption.

James took some pretty bold steps in an effort to understand that.

Donald Trump vs James Comey – Again on Twitter

Donald Trump - vs- James-comey.-crime-Shop

“James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!”

No sooner than he landed from his trip abroad to attend the G-20 Summit, did Donald Trump start taking to Twitter to once again start a pissing contest with the former Director of the FBI, James Comey.

Trump’s Tweet

“James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!”

This time he accuses James of leaking classified information to the media. Of course this follows a new report that had just been released indicating that James did in fact, keep detailed memos about the conversations he and Trump had.  

According to a report by the Hill on Sunday evening, the FBI had determined that the 7 memos James had kept about his discussions with Trump, are government documents and the FBI labeled 4 of them to indicate that they contain “secret” or “confidential” intel.

Here’s is what the report does not say:

It does not actually say, as Trump suggests, insinuates or says, that James actually leaked any classified information but rather, that Congress is investigating whether James violated any FBI rules (Please note the key word here, “rules” which are not actual laws), by creating, storing or sharing his memos.

Which as luck would have it, do in fact detail the pair’s conversations over the investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s presidential campaign and Russia.

Let’s also not forget that James had already admitted in testimony before a Senate committee in June that he did in fact ask a friend to leak one of the memos.

That memo just so happened to say that Trump had asked him to drop the probe into former national security adviser Mike Flynn’s ties to Russia. Which was quite possibly just another case of “locker room talk.”

james-comey-trump-crime-shop

James being of far more superior intelligence and grace, and having a moral compass, simply elected to make note of said “locker room talk.”

And at that time, it’s very important to know and realize that James did not believe or think that particular memo would have been labeled as a Government document let alone in any way shape or form, classified, secret or confidential intel.

“I understood this to be my recollection recorded of my conversation with the president. As a private citizen, I thought it important to get it out,” James told the committee.

And In all reality, as a private citizen, let alone the director of the FBI, he had a duty to report that information.

The problem is, that once again just like while he was on the campaign trail, Trump’s word’s have swung back and hit him right in the face.

He doesn’t seem to enjoy that much but he should certainly get quite used to it, because it will keep happening.

James Comey – Still has Game

Former FBI Director – James Comey – #ComeyIsMyHomey

Former FBI Director James Comey received an early 4th of July gift from some at the FBI in the form of support for the former director of the FBI.

comey is my homey.jpeg

On Friday some FBI employees and guests showed up to the FBI’s family day sporting T-Shirts that read “#ComeyIsMyHomey.”

It would seem that more than just a few individuals still support the former director of the FBI who took a chance and stood up to Donald Trump and his administration. James, if you recall documented in painful detail some of the rather uncomfortable meetings he had with our illustrious president, who demanded loyalty from the director.

James was fired as he was overseeing the FBI’s investigation into whether Donald Trump’s campaign associates colluded with Russian attempts to interfere in last year’s presidential election.

At the time of his firing the White House initially said the president fired James at the recommendation of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who drafted a memo outlining criticisms of James Comey’s handling of the probe into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

Then, the truth eventually surfaced because Donald Trump later told NBC that he planned to fire Comey regardless of Rosenstein’s recommendation because he was fed up with the Russia investigation.

Although, I didn’t always agree with how James stated things, I supported the guy and still do.  At the end of the day, James Comey will still go down as one of the most influential FBI Directors in history, he is actually a true patriot, he actually did a lot of good while serving as the director of the FBI outside of anything having to do with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, he still has a large showing of support and those shirts are actually pretty cool. Does anyone know where I can get a razorback-tank for my hikes?

FBI Seeks – Fearless Leader

Trump-Fires-James-Comey-Crimeshop.org

That will not investigate the Trump Administration’s ties to Russia

Donald Trump-CrimeShop

The biggest question this week by far is whether or not Trump’s firing of James Comey has anything to do with the investigation into his administration’s ties to Russian political influence in the 2016 presidential election.

All kidding aside, the firing of James is not a surprise. I won’t go into the seemingly succulent and eerie undertones of Nixon here, I will say however it does seem a wee bit odd that James was fired now rather than several months ago.

Jeff Sessions-crimeshop

I won’t even go into Jeff Sessions and his recusing himself from certain investigations, yet being the one to handle the firing of James.

I will however say this, yes James made huge and vast mistakes when it came to the Hillary Clinton email scandal he both allowed for and authorized the destruction of vital evidence in the case which should have never, ever happened.

James Comey-former - fbi-director-crimeshop

On the other hand James was not a yes man, like the rest of the Trump administration, he actually pushed back and basically without saying it, let the current administration know that he had his job to do and would not allow for any outside influence.

Lastly, If a government official (in this case the director of the FBI), is clearly placed within the Executive Branch, that official serves at the pleasure of the President, and can be fired at will.

So with that, the hunt is on for a new director of the FBI.

In other words the hunt is on for a yes man, one perhaps that will neglect looking into Trump and his team’s ties to Russia prior to the 2016 presidential election.

James Comey – breaking all the rules by having a Twitter account?

fbi-director-james-comey-crimeshop
Federal Bureau of Investigation – James Comey -Twitter

Earlier this week as I was enjoying my time off I noted a slew of stories about a reporter who claims to have uncovered the FBI Director James Comey’s Twitter account.

After the initial announcement hit, story after story followed in what would appear as shock and awe over the fact that James even has a Twitter account.

I sat back stumped over the ordeal in shock myself but not because James has any social media account, I was more shocked that the media played it up so much. I’ve often pointed out that those in law enforcement, are after all, human beings pretty much like the rest of us so what is the big deal over James having a Twitter account or any other form of social media?

The big deal is smoke and mirrors, it must have been a slower than usual news week. He isn’t breaking any rules, up to and including rules that have to do with national security. He maintains social media accounts to keep in touch with family and loved ones.

Big deal, so he is like the majority of the world in that respect.

So as the story goes at a dinner James made an off the cusp remark that he does in fact maintain secret social media accounts and as luck would have it, one of those accounts happens to have 9 followers that are relatives of his.

While some have referred to it as being great sleuthing, I see it more as cyber stalking, Gizmodo’s Ashley Feinberg took it upon herself to unmask and reveal to the world Director James Comey’s twitter account or rather what she thinks is his twitter account. And as further luck would have it, she did in fact reveal his Twitter name.

The picture she painted about how she was able to find the account is reminiscent of what stalkers in the past have done to find my hidden accounts on social media.

I’ll refrain from publishing the name of the said account, I mean after all it could very well be his personal account, what gets me is that the media seems to feel that it is okay to cyber stalk the Director of the FBI and label it “sleuthing.”

By all accounts it is a form of stalking and very much in poor taste. It could be labeled criminal because for no other reason it is ripe with malicious intent.

To humiliate, to prove a point to the intended victim, to reveal personal information about the victim without the consent of the victim, either way that you look at it, it was a move based on some very poor judgement and shows how completely low the media will go just to prove a point in a rather ugly way.

It is a disgusting attempt at reporting on something that is not even news worthy.

Way to go to Gizmodo’s Ashley Feinberg.Cristal M Clark

US intelligence has become politicized

us-fbi-crimeshop

Sen. Ron Wyden’s thoughts on the FBI & James Comey

A few days ago news started to break with regard to Sen. Ron Wyden’s thoughts on FBI Director James Comey in that he feels that James has made the choice to use classification to hide information about possible Russian interference in the US election for political reasons, according to what he told the New Yorker.

Ron-Wyden-Crimeshop.jpg

“My increasing concern is that classification now is being used much more for political security than for national security.”

Sen. Ron Wyden and 6 of his colleagues on the Senate Intelligence Committee to former President Obama 3 weeks after the election saying that the senators “believe there is additional information concerning the Russian Government and the US election that should be declassified and released to the public.”

Of course talk of this has been going on since Trump won the election, many have boldly accused our newly elected president of attempting to politicize intelligence.

donald-trump-crimeshop

The reality is that doesn’t surprise me, of course Trump would make that move it is precisely who and what he is as a human being.

What would surprise me however is if James actually is hiding intel and allowing for his agency to become politicized.

FBI-Director-James-Comey-Crimeshop.jpg

That is not who or what he is or was as a human being.
