Former FBI Director James Comey testified recently about his interactions with President Trump prior to his firing in early May, and unlike the liberal narrative floating around in the media, it was not due to anything President Trump did wrong.

While Comey did provide details of their interactions in the weeks preceding his firing, and focused on those relating to the investigation of the Trump campaign and Russian influence, his claims were either completely unfounded or refuted, and only proved that President Trump is doing his duty as written.

Comey’s testimony was really about pleasing the Democratic Party, as they claimed that Trump had some unsavory motivations for firing the former FBI Director — but all were disproven.

First of all, President Trump did not ask James Comey to close the Russian investigation, despite what Trump’s opponents have ranted about for weeks.

The Daily Caller reports:

“Did the president at any time ask you to stop the FBI investigation into Russian involvement?” North Carolina Sen. Richard Burr asked Comey.

“Not to my understanding, no,” he said.

That admission is significant given that Trump’s opponents have accused him of potentially obstructing justice by firing Comey and by asking him to publicly reveal that he was not a target of the Russian probe.

Furthermore, many from the left believed that President Trump told Comey to close the investigation of former national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Comey admitted that did happen, but it was spoken as words of direction rather than an actual order.

The Daily Caller reports:

Trump’s request in a Feb. 14 Oval Office meeting that Comey back off of investigating former national security adviser Michael Flynn was interpreted by Comey as a direction but not as an order, he testified.

“I hope you can see your way clear to letting this go, to letting Flynn go. He is a good guy. I hope you can let this go,” Comey says Trump told him in the meeting.

Asked about that exchange, Comey gave a nuanced answer.

“I took it as a direction,” Comey said. “I mean, this is a President of the United States with me alone saying, ‘I hope this.’ I took it as, this is what he wants me to do. I didn’t obey that, but that’s the way I took it.”

Comey said he did not interpret Trump’s remark as an order.

The distinction could prove important if the Russian investigation turns to questions about potential obstruction of justice.

Much of the testimony actually revolved around disputes in the Michael Flynn probe.

Both the Russian probe and the Flynn investigation have been overblown by the media, but there are decidedly two separate issues, and Comey confirmed that as well in his hearing.

The Daily Caller writes:

Comey clarified that the investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn is separate from the larger Russia probe.

The two investigations have been conflated by many reporters and political pundits.

Comey said that closing the Flynn investigation would not have impeded Russia investigation. He said he saw the two probes as “touching each other, but separate.”

And of much surprise was when Comey himself admitted to leaking his own memos-something liberals have claimed those close to Trump were guilty of.

The Daily Caller continues:

Comey said that he instructed a friend, Columbia Law School professor Daniel Richman, to leak details of transcripts of his memos to the media.

The New York Times first reported that Comey took contemporaneous notes following his meetings with Trump. In one memo, Comey said that Trump asked him to find a way to shut down the Flynn investigation.

Comey was asked why he used a third-party to release his memos rather than doing so himself. He said he relied on his friend in order to stave off an onslaught from reporters.

Richman may still have possession of the memos, Comey said.

Throughout his testimony, Comey made a fool of himself by contradicting liberal narratives he had previously supported, and accusing the President of things he had never done before.

But once more, President Trump has proven that he is abiding by his duties, and keeping American citizens as first priority.
