California Republican rep Darrell Issa gives an insight into what questions he has for the former FBI Director Jim Comey when he returned to Capitol Hill for questioning.

A day before you dismiss FBI Director James Comey is set to once again witness behind closed doors with house Republicans, a party, which is leading to the prediction that Special Counsel Robert Muller, the case against the ex-National security adviser Michael Flynn soon thrown out of court.

California Republican rep Darrell Issa on Fox News’ “Sunday Morning Futures”, which had the FBI “tricked” Flynn is not dated to a lawyer and had wrongly “post” documents “morph” in critical evidence against him. said He promised Comey hard questions about the episode.

“Tomorrow will be a very different day for Comey will again have, especially in the light of what we learned, — the misconduct during the Flynn investigation, by a judge demanded to understand what had happened,” Issa, host Maria Bartiromo, turning on US district judge Emmet G. Sullivan’s order last week, which led Müller to be said about the important documents of the case.

He continued: “I would not be surprised a bit if the conviction of Flynn is repealed because the Ministry of justice and the FBI misconduct — and that, in fact, we may all the way to the Supreme court, with new protection-if the FBI and the Department of Justice is someone and tricks to make statements, and then charge you with a lie, you captured them in. … This type of behavior, which we have not seen in a long time.”

In explosive court documents filed last week by Flynn’s legal team, it was not known that FBI instruct the agents in his case on purpose, Flynn, that the false statements he made, could constitute a criminal offense, and decided not to confront directly with him about everything he said contradicted their knowledge listened to his communications with the former Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak.

A memo written by then-FBI assistant Director Andrew McCabe stated that he called Flynn and “explained that I thought the fastest way to have done this a conversation between [Flynn] and the agent was just. … I further explained that, if LTG wanted Flynn all others in the session, such as the White house Counsel, for example, that I would need the involvement of the Department of justice.”

The court documents also showed that the FBI interview report-known as “FD-302” — the documentation of Flynn’s statements was dated several months after the actual Flynn interview took place in the White house. Addititon ally, Peter Strzok, the agent that led the Flynn-interview and said he didn’t have the feeling that Flynn was at the time, was fired from the Russian probe at the end of July 2017, for its apparent anti-Trump bias.


Other documents released by the Müller team on Friday in response to judge Sullivan’s to reveal that the decision to an interview with Flynn about his contacts with the Russian Ambassador, was controversial within the Ministry of justice. An FBI document said then-Acting Attorney General Sally Yates “was not happy” if Comey announced that the FBI planned to Flynn to speak.

The report also said that several unnamed people at FBI headquarters “arguing later about the FBI’s decision to interview Flynn.” On Jan. 23, 2017-just a day before the Flynn-interview — The Washington Post reported, citing FBI sources, that the FBI had bugged Flynn’s discussions with Russian officials and cleared him of any wrongdoing.

Comey admitted last week that he personally directed, two FBI agents could get to break normal Protocol of interviewimg Flynn in the White house, because, he said, the FBI “get away with” it, early on in the Trump administration, which he characterized as disorganized.

Sullivan technically, the power of attorney was null and void to explain Flynn’s guilty and dismiss the proceedings against him, if he digs government misconduct, or determines that the plea would constitute a miscarriage of justice that the court should accept.

Sullivan-who joined the could take in 2008, the conviction of former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, according to the government’s misconduct came to light — that is quite a drastic step, if it finds that the FBI’s missing exculpatory witnesses withheld the reports from the Flynn team, the interview forced evidentiary basis for your cargo, or wrong Flynn in, bring a lawyer to his fateful January of 2017 -.


Speaking of “Fox News Sunday” said earlier in the day, Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani Flynn had “railroaded” and “framed” – and although Giuliani acknowledged Flynn lied to had said Vice-President of Pence about his communications with Russia, he is the FBI’s behavior was still reprehensible.

“What have you done, General Flynn should load the result in the discipline,” Giuliani. “You are those who violate the law.”



In a tweet on Sunday, Comey no signs of support showed down, to condemn, the President of Trump as a “liar” for criticizing the Federal-authorities-raid on his former lawyer, Michael Cohen.

“Remember, Michael Cohen, was just a ‘rat’, according to the FBI, did something that was absolutely unthinkable & unheard of, until the witch was Chasing to illegally started,” Trump wrote on Twitter early on Sunday. “You BROKE INTO AN ATTORNEY’S OFFICE! Why don’t you have to break in to the DNC, to the Server, or the Wrong office?”

In April, Federal agents, the Cohen’s home, office and hotel ambushed area as part of the investigation in the bank fraud and campaign-charges he later confessed that he had committed. To characterize the time, Trump the movement as an “attack on our country” and said that “attorney-client privilege is dead.”

But later on, Sunday, Comey stressed that the agents had acted in accordance with a lawful search warrant, and that lawyers are not immune to addiction-especially if you are suspected of misconduct on behalf of clients.


“This is not the President of our country, lies on the lawful execution of a search warrant issued by a Federal judge,” Comey wrote on Twitter. “It is a disgrace for the Republicans, who don’t speak up in that moment — for the FBI, the rule of law and the truth.”

Any communication with lawyers in the promotion of a new crime are not usually protected by privilege. A special master was appointed in the case by a Federal court judge to ensure, that Trump separated the privileged communications from non-privileged love.

Cohen, the trump’s lawyer also had the ability to compromise, Trump attorney-client privilege by the disclosure of their communications themselves, was sentenced this week to 36 months in prison.

The former trump loyalists had earlier claimed before the court that he had committed a campaign Finance violation “in the direction of” Trump-even though top lawyers and former Federal Election Commission-have told the Chairman that the issue of a criminal conviction for such alleged violations is often extremely difficult.

Comey testified earlier this month behind closed doors with House Republicans probing its oversight of the Hillary Clinton E-Mail-probes, and the early days of the Russia-investigation. He is expected to return on Monday for more testimony.

After he was questioned by the house Republicans for the first time in Dec. 7, Comey derided the GOP will lose the majority in the house in January, and with subpoena power-as hopelessly partisan.

“Today was not a search for truth, but in a desperate attempt to find something, anything, can be said to be used to attack the institutions of the judiciary, the investigation of this President,” Comey. “They came up empty today, but try again. In the long run, it’ll make no difference, because facts are stubborn things.”


A focus of the survey of legislators, Comey was the decision for the design of the 2016 statement is the recommendation against filing criminal charges in the Clinton-E-Mail probe the former Secretary of state was even shown being interviewed, as well as the alleged political direction of a whole series of text messages and leaks of top FBI officials.

“What have you done, General Flynn should be the result in the discipline.”

But a Department of justice attorney prevented Comey-who had to avoid being sued, testified behind closed doors before the store is that the expense of answering all of the Republicans issues, according to lawmakers at the hearing.

235-page transcript of Comey to the comments and questions to him was later released, according to the agreement between Comey and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., and House Oversight and government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S. C.

It was revealed that Comey claimed, “I know” or “I don’t remember” in response to dozens of questions related to important details about his time as FBI chief.

Asked whether he recalled the author of the FBI ‘ s “initiation document” for the July, 2016, the Russia investigation, Comey, I said, “you.” He claims not to know, when asked about the involvement, the initiation of Strzok, the anti-Trump lyrics later got him probe removed from the special counsel of the.

James Comey back to Capitol Hill for questioning

Republicans Reps. Sean Duffy and Matt Gaetz give insight into what questions they have, to testify for the former FBI Director, James Comey when he comes in front of the house.

On the question of whether the FBI has no evidence that someone hack into the conspired in the Trump campaign, the DNC server, Comey gave a longer answer Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, why he could not answer refers to.

“We have evidence, in July (2016) to hack that everyone in the trump campaign conspired with the DNC server?” Comey asked rhetorically. “I don’t believe that the FBI and special counsel to want to answer my questions, which may relate to the examination of the Russian failures during the 2016. And I’m worried that the cross the line.”

If you continue to press the Gowdy about what is “factual predicate” that the Bureau had claimed to launch a counterintelligence investigation, Comey, that the answer to this question would be a “slope” that would ask him to reveal what is the FBI “, or don’t know about the Russian activities” when it comes to the election in 2016.

“You can’t tell us, or will you not tell us?” Gowdy asks.

“Probably a combination of the two … as far as I remember the facts during our investigation of the Russian intervention and the possible connection of Americans, I think this is a question, not to answer the FBI wanted me to. So it is both not and not,” replied Comey.


The former FBI Director went on to say that all of this would be what to do with Mueller’s studies to his understanding of “off limits”, as it is an ongoing investigation.

Comey was also out of focus, the potential for democratic financing of the research that went into the controversial and unverified anti-Trump-dossier.

Asked when he learned that the company behind the dossier, Fusion GPS, was hired by the law firm of Perkins Coie, and when he learned that the law firm was hired by the Democratic National Committee, Comey said, “I never learned that” during the Director.

Comey also claims not to know the most important details about the involvement of Christopher Steele, the former British spy, the author of the dossier.

Asked when Steele was “ended” as an FBI source, Comey said he did not know it.

Asked Steele is a subsequent contact with the Ministry of justice official Bruce ear, Comey said, “I don’t know anything about it.”
