House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, in a Thursday “Good Morning America” interview, wondered aloud where the now-famous James Comey memos were — and whether the fired FBI director really was going to release them for public viewing.
These are good questions — ones that cut right through the labyrinth of speculation and innuendo created by Comey’s memo mention and fueled by a madcap mob mentality rush from Democrats and the media to take down President Donald Trump.
Where are the memos, indeed, Mr. Comey?
“I think in the light of day in a public setting, he should be able to tell us about the materials, if they’re there, and I question whether or not they’re actually there,” Chaffetz said.
Chaffetz just requested the FBI turn over “memoranda, notes, summaries and recordings” of discussions between Trump and Comey, in order to determine whether the president — as the fired FBI director alleges — actually tried to “influence or impede” the investigation into former National Security Advisor Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn. Chaffetz gave a deadline of May 24 to receive the materials.
His “Good Morning America” appearance goes even bolder with demand for proof.
So far, all we know about Trump’s supposed request to Comey to back off the investigation of Flynn is simply that Comey said he did. And the White House, for the record, denies Trump asked Comey to stop investigating Flynn.
It’s a he-said, he-said situation, that’s for sure — but one that the media has run with as proof positive of Trump’s obstruction of justice guilt.
