Rep. Meadows: James Comey’s problems are just now starting


STATE DEPARTMENT. MORE COMING UP FROM THERE SHORTLY.>>WE’RE REQUIRED BY THE I.G. ACT TO SEND INFORMATION THAT WE’VE IDENTIFIED THAT COULD PLAUSIBLY BE CRIMINAL TO THE DEPARTMENT AND WE HAVE DONE THAT.>>THAT’S PRETTY MONUMENTAL. DO YOU KNOW OF ANY OTHER F.B.I. DIRECTOR IN THE PAST HAS HAD A CRIMINAL PROSECUTION REFERRAL?>>I DON’T KNOW AS I SIT HERE.>>Sandra: A BATTLE HOW INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE PRESIDENT BEGAN. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT INSPECTOR GENERAL TELLING LAW MAKESERS HIS OFFICE WILL ASEES NEW REPUBLICAN ALLEGATIONS OF INCONSISTENCIES BY JAMES COMEY. CONGRESSMAN, THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE. IN THE REFERRAL ABOUT INCONSISTENCIES WHAT DO YOU WANT HOROWITZ TO INVESTIGATE AND LOOK INTO?>>WHAT WE DID WAS WE WENT THROUGH HIS REPORT, THE I.G.’S REPORT ON JAMES COMEY’S TESTIMONY AND WE COMPARED THAT TO THE TESTIMONY THAT WE HAD IN CONGRESSIONAL HEARINGS. WE START EVIDENCE — WE STARTED TO SEE THAT THEY WERE NOT CONSISTENT. WE’VE IDENTIFIED MULTIPLE OCCASIONS WHERE THAT HAPPENED. WE’RE REFERRING THOSE TO THE INSPECTOR GENERAL TO ACTUALLY INVESTIGATE. AND THAT’S WHAT THE GENESIS OF ALL OF THIS YESTERDAY. LISTEN, JAMES COMEY’S PROBLEMS ARE JUST NOW STARTING. WE’VE SEEN ENOUGH DOCUMENTS. WE KNOW THE I.G.’S REPORT IS COMING OUT AND LISTEN, THE ONLY THING THAT HAS BEEN CONSISTENT ABOUT DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY IS HIS WILLINGNESS TO GO AFTER THIS PRESIDENT AND IT IS TIME WE HOLD HIM ACCOUNTABLE.>>Bill: YOU WERE QUOTED YESTERDAY SAYING I’M FINDING A NUMBER OF IRREGULARITIES WITH COMEY’S TESTIMONY.>>ONE OF THE IRREGULARITIES IS JAMES COMEY ACTUALLY SAID THAT NOTHING THAT HAPPENED ACTUALLY AFFECTED THE INVESTIGATION. AND THEN WE SEE IN THE INSPECTOR GENERAL’S REPORT THAT SOME OF THE CONVERSATIONS THAT HE HAD ACTUALLY CHANGED THE ACTION THAT HE TOOK SPECIFICALLY TRYING TO LEAK THINGS TO GET THE SPECIAL PROSECUTOR INSTALLED AND CALLED INTO ACTION. AND SO THAT’S ONE. THERE ARE A NUMBER OF OTHERS WHERE HE SAID I’M ONLY TAKING THESE MEMOS, THESE NOTES FOR MY OWN PERSONAL USE AND YET WHAT WE SEE FROM THE INSPECTOR GENERAL’S POINT OF VIEW IT WAS ACTUALLY A CALCULATED PLAN THAT HE DISCUSSED WITH SENIOR-LEVEL OFFICIALS TO TRY TO IN MY OPINION ENTRAP THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.>>Bill: CAN THERE BE AN EXPLANATION FOR THAT? OR DO YOU BELIEVE HE WAS LYING?>>WELL, I BELIEVE THAT HE WAS AT TIMES WAS NOT TELLING THE WHOLE TRUTH TO CONGRESSIONAL INVESTIGATORS EVEN WITHIN THE CONTEXT OF WHAT HE TOLD REPUBLICANS VERSUS WHAT HE TOLD DEMOCRATS. THERE WAS A DIFFERENT STORY. NOW, WE KNOW THAT FROM HIS TELEVISION APPEARANCES. THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE’VE SEEN INCONSISTENCIES WHERE HE TOLD ONE THING TO CONGRESS, ANOTHER TO THE INSPECTOR GENERAL, AND THOSE NOT MATCHING UP, BOTH OF THOSE HAVE A REQUIREMENT TO TELL THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH.>>Sandra: WHEN YOU SAY IT COULD ONLY BE THE BEGINNING FOR JAMES COMEY WHAT ARE YOU SUGGESTING WHAT COULD RESULT FROM THIS REFERRAL TO HOROWITZ?>>WELL, I DON’T KNOW IF IT’S AS MUCH OUR REFERRAL TO HOROWITZ ON THIS BECAUSE I KNOW HE IS GOING TO LOOK AT THIS. HE ADMITTED THAT HE HAD NOT LOOKED AT ALL THE CONGRESSIONAL TESTIMONY AND TRANSCRIBED INTERVIEWS WHEN HE MADE HIS CRIMINAL REFERRAL BEFORE. BUT WHAT I’M REFERRING TO IS REALLY THE DOCUMENTS THAT WE’VE GIVEN TO THE INSPECTOR GENERAL AS IT RELATES TO THE FISA ABUSE. NOT ONLY WAS THEIR CREDIBILITY ISSUES WITH KRISTOF EAR — CHRISTOPHER STEELE BUT ALSO SOME OF THE BRIEFINGS THEY HELD WITH PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP AND THEN PRESIDENT TRUMP. MORE A MATTER OF WHAT THEY DIDN’T TELL VERSUS WHAT THEY DID TELL AND THEN WHAT WE HAVE FOUND. WHAT WE FOUND IS THAT THERE SEEM TO BE TWO DIFFERENT SCENARIOS. ONE HE TOLD THE PRESIDENT HE WASN’T UNDER INVESTIGATION AT THE SAME TIME HE WAS INTENTIONALLY TRYING TO INVESTIGATE AN OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE CASE. AND HE IN TESTIMONY SAID OH NO, WE’RE NOT LOOKING AT AN OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE CASE AND NOW WE FIND OUT FROM THE INSPECTOR GENERAL’S REPORT THAT HE WAS. SO IT’S THOSE KINDS OF INCONSISTENCIES. THERE MAY BE A GOOD EXPLANATION, BUT I HAVE YET TO FIND ONE.>>Bill: THE I.G. SAYS DEMOCRATS HAVEN’T REACHED OUT TO HIM ABOUT POTENTIAL FISA ABUSE AT THE COURT LEVEL.>>THAT’S A NEWS ALERT. CAN YOU IMAGINE?>>Bill: THE QUESTION IS, IF THAT’S THE CASE, DEMOCRATS RUN THE SHOW IN THE HOUSE. SO WE SHOULD NOT EXPECT A HEARING WITH HOROWITZ WHICH LEADS YOU TO THINK IT MUST COME FROM THE SENATE SIDE. IS THAT A FAIR ASSUMPTION?>>WELL, ONE OF TWO WAYS. IT EITHER COMES FROM THE SENATE SIDE OR COMES FROM THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WHO SAY WE’RE TIRED OF DEMOCRATS HOLDING THESE PARTISAN HEARINGS. LISTEN, IF THEY’RE ALL ABOUT TRANSPARENCY LET’S HAVE A FEW HEARINGS WHEN THE INSPECTOR GENERAL CAN COME IN AND GIVE INFORMATION THAT GOES AGAINST THEIR NARRATIVE. THEY HAVEN’T REACHED OUT NOR DO I ANTICIPATE THEY WILL EVER REACH OUT. THEY WANT HEARINGS FOR TOTALLY POLITICAL REASONS. IT’S TIME THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. I HAVE GREAT FAITH IN SENATOR LINDSEY GRAHAM AND CHUCK GRASSLEY AND SOME OF THE OTHERS. IF WE DON’T HAVE THEM ON THE HOUSE SIDE, THEY’LL HAVE THEM ON THE SENATE SIDE. BUT ULTIMATELY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WILL BE THE JUDGE.>>Sandra: I WANT TO GO BACK TO FIVE HOURS OF TESTIMONY WE HEARD FROM COREY LEWANDOWSKI, THE PRESIDENT’S FORMER CAMPAIGN MANAGER. THE TOP DEMOCRAT, JERRY NADLER THE CHAIRMAN CALLED HIS BEHAVIOR IN THAT HEARING ROOM COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE. SAID HOLDING HIM IN CONTEMPT IS CERTAINLY UNDER CONSIDERATION. WHAT WAS YOUR RESPONSE TO COREY LEWANDOWSKI AND HOW HE HANDLED HIMSELF IN THAT HEARING ROOM?>>I THINK COREY DID A MARVELOUS JOB. HERE IS THE INTERESTING THING. YOU ARE POINTING OUT SOMETHING THAT CHAIRMAN NADLER TALKED ABOUT BUT INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH BEFORE HE EVER HEARD THE TESTIMONY, HE HAD THAT DOCUMENT PREPARED. HE READ THE DOCUMENT. SO IT DIDN’T MATTER WHAT COREY SAID, HE WAS GOING TO READ THAT DOCUMENT. IT IS ALL POLITICAL THEATER AND HAS NOTHING TO DO TO GETTING TO THE TRUTH. COREY DID A GOOD JOB OF SHOWING THE HYPOCRISY OF SOME OF MY DEMOCRATIC COLLEAGUES.>>Bill: THE OPINION SIDE OF A NEWSPAPER SAID THAT THE HEARING WAS, TO BAR A PHRASE, LAUGHABLE. IF THAT’S THE CASE, DOES IT HAPPEN AGAIN AND IF SO, WHO WOULD BE THE NEXT WITNESS?>>IT WILL HAPPEN AGAIN. THEY WILL GO AND TRACK DOWN ANY WITNESS THAT THEY CAN POSSIBLY FIND, INCLUDING JANITORS IF THEY HAVE SOMETHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS PRESIDENT, THEY’RE GOING TO BRING THEM IN AND TRY TO INTIMIDATE THEM TO HAVE THEM SAY NEGATIVE THINGS ABOUT THE PRESIDENT AND YET COREY WAS NOT WILLING TO DO THAT. HE IS NOT GOING TO BE INTIMIDATED BY JERRY NADLER AND COMPANY. I FIND THAT THEY WILL CONTINUE TO DO THIS INSTEAD OF IMPEACHMENT TO A POINT WHERE HOPEFULLY THEY BELIEVE IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN 2020.>>Bill: SOME OF THEIR PARTY LEADERS AREN’T ON BOARD. HOW DO THEY RESOLVE IT?>>THEY START TO GET DOWN TO DO REAL OVERSIGHT WHERE THEY ARE REALLY GOING AFTER THOSE THAT HAVE AN ISSUE THAT WE NEED TO ADDRESS. AND WHERE WE CAN FIX IT LEGISLATIVELY. MOST OF THIS IS REALLY CONJECTURE. WHAT THEY’LL DO IS GET ONE PARTICULAR ITEM AND THEN SAY LET’S MAKE A BIG DEAL OF THIS. WHEN YOU START TRYING TO BE LASER FOCUSED ON THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND DO DEFACTO IMPEACHMENT. TRYING TO INFLICT AS MUCH DAMAGE AS THEY CAN. THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE TIRED OF IT. LET’S MAKE SURE WE DO A TRANSPORTATION BILL AND MAKE SURE WE KEEP JOBS GROWING THE WAY THEY ARE. ULTIMATELY THERE WILL BE A DAY OF RECKONING IN NOVEMBER OF 2020.>>Sandra: WHAT DO YOU SEE IS THE FUTURE FOR DEMOCRATS IN THIS PUSH FOR IMPEACHMENT?>>WELL, IT DOESN’T COME OUT WELL FOR THEM. OBVIOUSLY THE AMERICAN PEOPLE DO NOT SUPPORT IT. IT IS NOT JUST REPUBLICANS. IT IS THE VAST MAJORITY OF UNIFILLIATEED VOTERS. THE CLOSER WE GET TO ELECTION TIME THE MORE THEY’LL SEE THIS AS A POLITICAL STUNT AND THAT’S INDEED WHAT IT IS. IT’S ALL ABOUT TRYING TO TELL ONE GROUP THAT THEY ARE IMPEACHING WHILE GOING TO THE MODERATE AREAS AND UNAFFILIATED VOTERS AND SAYING NO, WE’RE JUST DOING PROPER OVERSIGHT. IT DOESN’T END WELL WITH THEM. THE PRESIDENT IS ABLE TO TAKE HIS MESSAGE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. AND IT IS ALL ABOUT WHAT MATTERS TO THEM MOST IS SECURITY, BORDER SECURITY,

  1. Remember the important facts : No exoneration and can be charged with obstruction of justice after he's out of office โš–๏ธ 2020 ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

  2. Our elected president was put through their B S Russian collusion investigation because of this made up nonsense. Not okay

  3. I'm surprised no one has aloha snackbar-ed Comey. Maybe this will really just be the beginning, if Republicans can do it. I'm very skeptical. Don't know if anything will ever come of this..be as dead end as Dems going after the president.

  4. Comey was the initial dog whistle alerting our nation to a corrupt president. The forewarned actions and investigations proved Comey's concerns credible and warranted. The subsequent results of those investigations netted convictions, indictments, arrests and obstruction of justice on behalf of the Trump presidency and his 2016 campaign. This retribution from the Barr Justice Department is divisive abuse of powers. No way will Comey face credible legal repercussions because they don't exist.

  5. so far this morning i've tried to listen to many fox videos plus other conservative sites and the audio is barely audible?????? All other types of videos have perfect volume

  6. We all know Comey is a lying, treasonous bastard that should be swinging from a tall tree somewhere. What really needs investigation though, is how he ever became the FBI'S director in the first place.

  7. republicans will do nothing ..only talk!!!
    the republicans are less effective when playing the political optic Nader Circus…. tricks but no justice accountability. the dems attacks are more effective on % public oppinion…Republicans are too msm "soft"

  8. Former F.I.B. Director Comey…………thank you fellow Tarheel Meadows and a handful of others who won't give up on seeking justice!! ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ Trump 2020 and beyond!!

  9. Rep. Meadows, thank you for reading the fine print letter for letter to find the discrepancy in the testimony of James Comey. Please get to the bottom of this. Make sure that you procecute Comey for all his crimes and lying under Oath! This is obstruction of justice by Comey as well. Holding him accountable is imperative! Please have the Inspector General appear before Congress for ALL American's to hear and see once and for all! Thank you Sir! God Bless you ๐Ÿ™

  10. At the very least this comedy guy is a flight risk take his passport. He will declare he has to leave the country on a book deal!

  11. You people are nuts! Focusing on this splinter when you have a log rolling around in the Oval office. Your Traitor-in-chief acts against your interests every day with lies, criminal self-dealing, conflicts of interests, and policies as idiotic as his tweets. You have been taken in by his Snake Oil act and, like all gullible victims of scam artists, you would rather deny and deflect rather than face the reality that you supported a goddammed criminal. Good luck, fools!

  12. Over two and a half years, and still the Cabal is free. The Cabal, has attacked our country from within the FBI, OUR TOP LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCY. Instead of the new FBI Director cooperating with investigations into the agency's criminal activities, he choses to obstruct by delaying the release of documents containing proof of criminal activities. Who appointed Wray ? We need a Good Cop as director of the FBI, that exposes the criminals, not someone willing to cover up their activities. How do we address problems abroad, when we can't even get an ounce of justice here at home.

  13. So tired of the shenanigans cannon fodder hearing about Comey and Mueller. Political cannon fodder! Just pure crap to keep the American citizens from believing that they can have critical thinking. Absolute nonsense! Free Masonic rhetoric ;

  14. Still banging the same old BS drum. Comey the man Trump called and American hero and patriot until Comey refused to pledge loyalty to Trump personally rather than loyalty to America and its people. Trump the treacherous lying conman in chief who breaks his oath of office every day and serves only himself. Nothing here about Trump offering the Ukraine a deal in return for dirt on Biden. Nothing here about Trump attempting to keep the national security service whistleblowers complaint away from congress and to isolate the whistleblower.

  15. News is a Business. Selling Fear, false hope as in prosecuting Hillary, Comey and the rest of corrupted individuals etc. I'll believe it when I see it. Comey gave Hillary a free pass yet used FBI to leak and go after Trump with FISA abuse. BS

  16. Since when do we need our Congress involved when people Break the LAW? IF Comey
    did wrong then he did wrong & it needs only a prosecutor who charges him. Just as
    happens w/ you or I everyday in this Nation? F#@K Congress as they are as guilty
    of illegal acts as Comey……. if he did wrong, CUFF Him Up ……

  17. WHY IS IT THAT EVERYDAY PEOPLE HAVE KNOWN FOR YEARS MORE THAN THESE PEOPLE IN CONGRESS . . . . I FIND IT SO DEPRESSING AND OPPRESSING TO LISTEN TO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! COMEY LIED!!! AND HE LIED FOR A REASON!!! IS IT TRUE HIS BROTHER IN LAW IS BOOKKEEPER OR SEC. FOR THE CLINTON FOUNDATION!!!??? AND WHERE HAVE THOSE FUNDS COME AND WHERE MIGHT THEY GO!!!!????? HOW MANY COUNTS OF TRE-SON DOES THERE NEED TO BE???!!! WHICH HAVE BEEN KNOWN NOW FOR YEARS . . .

  18. It is great that since President Trump has been elected, the Republicans have finally found their backbone. For decades they have cowed down to whatever the Democrats wanted. I just hope they don't lose them again after President Trump leaves office. IF THE REPUBLICANS WANT TO CONTINUE TO GET OUR VOTES, THEY'D BETTER FIND A WAY TO CONTINUE TO HAVE THEIR BACKBONES AND STAND UP FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!

  19. What is the definition of Right and wrong, if wrong equals right and right equals wrong? Who is ,and what is the definition of ( is ) ๐Ÿ˜ Dem language to break down civil order

  20. Right. Three years of any day now. The repubs have cried wolf too many times. Its obvious this AG wont do any more that the last one did. Im bored of the flaccid republican show. Time for a new direction.

  21. Trump colluded with Russia. Trump colluded with Ukraine. Blame Comey, blame Comey and take the heat off of Trump, the real criminal.

  22. Weโ€™re at a fork in the road. We ether continue down the road of our Nations destruction as a banana republic or correct the path. I donโ€™t have much faith in Barr.

  23. And we are the Americans!!!!!! Corey did an upright job!! It was laughable!!!!!! Good to be on the side of the TRUTH. Some people ARE IN THEIR JOBS BECAUSE THEY CARE!

  24. Comey's problems should have started long ago. I dobut he'll ever be indicted. It's the old 2-tier system that's obviously in full play within the DC swamp.

  25. Im' really getting sick of all this BS, ' Comey is Going To be Charged! ', Obama, HRC, on and on, sounds like, 'HOPE AND CHANGE', I understand that they have been embedded for years and all that, But arrest these MF'ers, They are guilty, PERIOD! THIS IS FAKE NEWS! Just do it or STFU!

  26. Oh stop I think by now most folks except the die hard trumplacans realize that nothing but nothing is going to happen from Comey stories like this are just a attempt to spin away from the awful criminal in the WH

  27. Comey bought information about four Russians from British Spy Christopher Steele in 2015, when they were brought up on charges for possible bribery involving F.I.F.A. Championship Host Nation selection, 12 people from other Nations were convicted, but all four of the Russians were found Not Guilty With Prejudice. The Judge found that all of the evidence provide by Steele to Comey were manufactured lies. This case drew international attention and many articles were written about it in SPRING OF 2016. Our FISA Court then took more Steele lies at face value.

  28. Democrats showed how hypocrite fascists they are the way they focused on Trump since 2017 regardless of all the facts & America's health. The WAY Democrat have been attacking Trump speaks of how badly Democrats are dominated by Zionists & Obama likes.

  29. Who else besides Obama could Horowitz have been talking about? Has Obama already been indicted? There are no other presidents it could be. Trump is not being indicted. It has to be Obama no?

  30. Nothing will happen to the evil corrupt Comey , MacCabe and all the rest . Horowitz is totally useless and he is in the democRat camp ! The swamp goes so deep it will never be eradicated and lawlessness is now officially the accepted norm !

  31. Every time I turn around it seems like Nadler is wanting to hold someone in contempt. I think he needs to be held in contempt for being biased.

  32. TIME FOR PATRIOTS TO TAKE TO THE STREETS IF NO ONE GOES TO PRISON! TRUMP SAID THAT HE WANTED TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS NEVER HAPPENS AGAIN. HOW WILL THAT HAPPEN IF NO ONE PAYS FOR THEIR CRIMES? WE NEED JUSTICE or the circus in congress WILL CONTINUE! WE ARE SICK OF THIS SHOW!

  33. Told everyone Trump wasn't under investigation. If he doesn't go to prison I'll nominate Jim Jordan for 2024, Trump – The Teflon Don for 2020

  34. Slim Jim will Probably never spend 1 night in jail this is Washington folks this is the way they operate Lip Service

  35. When Comey is inside he can read his own book n pass it on 2 others ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

  36. THE FAKED FAISA WARRANTS.
    TREASON.
    โ€œCONSPIRACY.โ€
    I was raised that people like this who turned their backs on U.S. deserved the ultimate penalty.

  37. We need to set a president, or anybody will think they can do as they please in the future and the American people and the world will not have respect for our standards or the rule of law. Justice is supposed to be Blind. One law for all…………period.

  38. Comey will get away with everything, which is proof that FISA Courts do not work, are abused by a government that can only be trusted to abused our rights and liberty. The court does not demand accountability and is merely a rubber stamp for government abuse. They must be ended.

  39. i so this coming,and if you do the research,you we find that all the people in gov,all have history together ,[operation paperclip] ,you know Germany said they didnt lose the war,it was a stepping stone,also alot of our gov .is filled with operation paperclip ,i feel they are putting on a very good play,and were the deceived audience

  40. I hear: inconsistencies, irregularities, not telling the whole truth. There is a word in the English language that is a direct antonym for all these descriptors. Lies.

  41. Trey Gowdy said he doubts anything will come from this investigation because of the corruption. If nothing has happened with Hillary, nothing will happen to Comey. They are all tied together on the corruption and there are too many of the old cabal for Comey to ever see the inside of a courtroom for his corruption. I hope, for one time, Trey Gowdy has guessed incorrectly.

  42. James Comey, should be given no special treatment, no special privileges or immunity's whatsoever. We the people need "Equal Justice for All" just like it says in the Pledge of Allegiance!!!!! Let justice reign supreme as it should! No Malfeasance or evasive maneuvers or political hogwash!

  43. The reason derecktor comey is so smug is because he knows he canโ€™t be prosecuted for following the orders of the president. Obama is the one whoโ€™s nervous.
