Comey’s letter to the FBI – Short and sweet

Could Comey be Trump’s Achilles heel?

” It ain’t over yet.” – Anonymous

Well it looks like we have not heard that last from Mr. Comey, officially yet

Editor’s note: This is a different letter than Trump would have tweeted, in segments, if the roles had been reversed. During a Mother’s Day weekend, many might have missed the news that Comey passed on a closed Congressional hearing on some of his controversial work.

But then he agreed to a public hearing, and I am sure that committee members did not take long to figure out that Comey would not agree to being muzzled and then let them leak out of context what he said.

Many might suspect that Comey would gut The Donald in a public hearing, but he would not do that publicly, as then he would lose the upper hand he holds, being a classy guy that would not kiss Trump’s behind. I will bet that will work out for Comey in the end.

What I suspect he might do is nothing overtly against Trump, but if he has something, he might lay a breadcrumb trail in the right direction that will facilitate others in doing what needs to be done. The lit fuse here is a buried story.

There were news reports that Comey had asked the Justice Department for more money for the Trump-Russian investigation, and that certainly would have gotten back to Trump. Hence the firing without the staff knowing, or even a briefing, and theirbeing thrown to the wolves and having to wing it in front of the press. That horrible debacle was all on Trump.

But the sizzling fuse came with a later story that did not get much coverage, which clarified that the request was not for more investigation funds, but prosecutor funding, meaning that charges needed to be written up.

If that is true, you know when Trump got that news via Sessions or whoever (the Israelis?), that he crapped in his pants. Hence he kept the staff out of it so there was only his version of events as to why he did what he did. Now we have the story that Rupert Murdoch’s Fox News people might be brought in to “handle” the White house press and briefings. You just can’t make this stuff up! Jim W. Dean ]

Whose word would you trust the most under oath, Trump or Comey?

Director Comey’s last “formal” letter to his troops

To all:


I have long believed that a President can fire an FBI Director for any reason, or for no reason at all. I’m not going to spend time on the decision or the way it was executed. I hope you won’t either. It is done, and I will be fine, although I will miss you and the mission deeply.


I have said to you before that, in times of turbulence, the American people should see the FBI as a rock of competence, honesty, and
independence. What makes leaving the FBI hard is the nature and quality of its people, who together make it that rock for America.


It is very hard to leave a group of people who are committed only to doing the right thing. My hope is that you will continue to live our values and the mission of protecting the American people and upholding the Constitution. If you do that, you too will be sad when you leave, and the American people will be safer.


Working with you has been one of the great joys of my life. Thank you for that gift.


Jim Comey

    @James Albert Larson: I would say the editorial comments of Jim Dean prefacing many articles are nearly always enlightening and excellent quality sometimes even better than the articles themselves on which he has commented. Everything one reads is full of opinion without every fact or detail which might provide “proof” of claims. Some people are more honest than others. To me Jim and Gordon and most of the writers on VT all come off as honest writers whose goal is truth as opposed to lies and propaganda goals of most of the lying media today. I appreciate this effort at truth. Who really knows the truth about events which happened half way around in the world in third world countries or even right here in our own back yard such as 9/11 or any of these false flag attacks? Truth is elusive. How about the White Helmuts staging fake events about deaths on the battlefield? How low will people go to fool others? I have never read their evil machinations disclosed or acknowledged on any other channel.

      For example even in science, truth can be very difficult to prove. An elaborate theory of combustion called the philogiston theory, was advanced long before the element oxygen was discovered by Joseph Priestley in 1775. This theory was very powerful and explained many of the observed properties of combustion. However it was the great scientist and chemist Lavoisier who did the careful experiments which proved oxygen to be the basis of all combustion not a mysterious unobserved substance called philogiston which allegedly left the scene during all combustion. Many good scientists were unable to dismiss the theory of philogiston. Even scientists can be brainwashed. A similar situation exists today with so called particles called quarks. Like philogiston, no one has ever observed a quark or any particle with fractional electric charge. Hence for all practical purposes they do not exist in reality. Truth is elusive in science too.

    It’s interesting that most of us commenting have been praised in the past here at VT but now this “Susta” has a negative cut for about everyone. VT did attract something evil…but it’s not your long time readers.

    LC: Sandy Hook happened December 14, 2012 about 9 months earlier. Comey is a Sandy Hook Birthday Boy born December 14, 1960. He has had plenty of time to read and copy all the internal FBI reports detailing all the lies of Sandy Hook, Boston Bombing, 9/11 and all the rest. Will he have the guts to spill the beans? Only time will tell. However he is relatively young and does not want to meet the fate of so many others who have spilled the beans involving Hillary and Slick.

    LC: Of course, Comey is not 100% ‘clean.’ Nor am I. ;-).

    Trump-Firing-Comey is a ‘tool’ to take down Drumpf/Trump — AND his ‘Kosher Nostra.’

    Is that OK? ;-).

  5. Toby  May 15, 2017 at 2:08 pm

    Comey and Clapper have not brought the real perps of 9/11 to justice….kinda like the USS Liberty x100.

    • Dr. Abu-Bakr Susta  May 15, 2017 at 8:41 pm

      Toby: So, ‘cuz you want to right past wrongs before preventing any future 9/11s, you won’t even try to get C&C to ‘Do the Right Thing’???

      If others thought like you do, then NO ONE would ever eat White Bread that was not “100% White” — on the copy-paper white-purity scale… ;-).

    • Toby  May 16, 2017 at 3:23 pm

      Susta…what’s this “others thought like you” bullshit? I don’t know who you represent but I know one thing, the cancer that is 9/11 needs cut out and the soul of the USA needs an exorcism of the evil that is slithering in the halls of the US government.

      These people attacked the USA from within and will do it again. The planning went into the Pentagon while we all watched the President Bill infidelity show…aka Oded Yinon and “plan to attack 7 countries in 5 years” (Gen Clark 2007). Israel gets more citizens to push out Pals and expand and Saudi Wahhabi radicals control the destroyed countries. Not that hard to see motive.

      Don’t act high and mighty to me with whatever racist crap you are throwing (NO ONE would ever eat White Bread that was not “100% White” — on the copy-paper white-purity scale).

      Plenty of others think like me…that the real perps of 9/11 need brought to justice. Apparently you disagree. You can keep the racist crap to yourself ___hole.

    Thanks for the memories.

    Trump terminally “Borked” himself — both by firing FBI Director Comey during Comey’s investigation of Trump & Co. and by the way in which Trump did stupid stuff with Comey. FBI & intel agents are now more pissed than ever at President Tweet. However, most Trump supporters don’t really care.

    As per London betting oddsmakers, Trump now has a “60% chance” of being impeached — soon. See http://www.paddypower.com/bet/politics/other-politics/donald-trump?ev_oc_grp_ids=2944322.

    The verb “Bork” is a throwback to U.S. President Richard Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre,” in which Nixon ordered Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus to fire independent Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox.

    Rather than follow Nixon’s order, Richardson & Ruckelshaus resigned. Nixon then ordered the Attorney General successor, Solicitor General Robert Bork, to fire the Special Prosecutor — which Bork did.

    When Ronald Reagan nominated Robert Bork for the Supreme Court, U.S. Senators used Bork’s own words and deeds against Bork. Of course, Bork lost the nomination vote in the U.S. Senate… Thus, Trump just “Borked” himself by what he said & did with Comey.

    For a more colorful definition of “Borked,” see http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=borked. For a humorous depiction of Trump carelessly “Borking” himself, see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1H0leZhXcY (30 seconds).

      Ah, yes, the Saturday Night Massacre. How well I remember that little deed. I also remember bumper stickers saying,”Free the Watergate 500.”
      If Nixon knew, then Agnew knew
      But Agnew knew enough to stay out of jail. And all the king’s men could put Humpty Dick back together again.
      Haldeman, Erlichman, Mitchel and Dean
      It follows a pattern if you dig what I mean.
      Now we have a new Nixon at the White House; more venal, more paranoid and more dangerous than the previous version.
      But where are his plumbers?
      And where is deep throat?
      Would somebody tear the whole thing down and start all over again?

      JZ: Do you have ANY questions or comments that will make a difference for U.S./other decision makers? Although VT is a “Journal for the Clandestine Community,” the target audience for VT is U.S. & other geopolitical & economic decision makers…

      You comment often at VT. Please write your comments & questions to address Decision Makers. Mil/Intel boys & girls will then soon enjoy what you say more so than they now do (i.e., not a lot, especially when you suck the time & oxygen out of our breathing chambers).

      Sorry about that. Please continue. Some of your stuff is fairly good. Just not all of it (nor mine).
