In April of 2013, former FBI Director James Comey said in an interview with CNN that he didn’t know whether the insane story about Trump being with two prostitutes in a Moscow hotel was true or not. As Mollie Hemingway points out, Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report shows that Comey knew a year before the interview that it was all nonsense. In other words, he lied about it.
James Comey truly is one of the most despicable people to ever have served as director of the FBI. This man can’t open his mouth without lying. Case in point, an interview he gave to CNN back in April 2018.
When asked by the interviewer whether he believed Trump’s denial about the infamous pee story in the Steele dossier — how Donald Trump supposedly made two Russian prostitutes pee on a bed in a Moscow hotel because President Obama had slept on it — Comey answered: “I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don’t know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013. It’s possible, but I don’t know.”

It was an amazing, shocking statement and logically made headlines. As Mollie Hemingway points out, however, Comey was lying. All those involved knew in January 2017 (one year and three months before the interview!) that the story was false.
Disgusting. Watch this knowing that the FBI/DOJ *KNEW* this claim to be utterly unfounded as of January 2017. EVERY media outlet that helped @comey undermine the administration with his sick, sick behavior — whether @GStephanopoulos or CNN, etc. — should repent. https://t.co/8T45p9mQAL

“Disgusting,” Hemingway writes on Twitter. “Disgusting. Watch this knowing that the FBI/DOJ *KNEW* this claim to be utterly unfounded as of January 2017. EVERY media outlet that helped [Comey] undermine the administration with his sick, sick behavior — whether [George Stephanopoulos] or CNN, etc. — should repent.”
There is one minor problem with her tweet, however: there is no need for them to “repent.” The media, these rogue FBI agents, and the Democratic Party are all part of one and the same cabal. You repent when you make a mistake, not when you are purposefully and consciously part of a conspiracy against a democratically elected president.
These people lied to and deceived the American people (and many people outside of the U.S.): James Comey, George Stephanopoulos, MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, NBC News, John Brennan, Lisa Page, Peter Strzok, Clinesmith. The list goes on and on. They are all liars and active participants in a non-military coup.
