Comey Cancels Wednesday Hearing with House So He Can Talk to FBI Predecessor Mueller Who’s Heading Russia Probe

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Former FBI Director James Comey who was fired by President Donald Trump earlier this month apparently has asked to postpone his scheduled meeting Wednesday with Congress so he can first speak with Special Counsel.

NeverTrumper Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz, Chairman of the Oversight & Government Reform Committee, tweeted out yesterday:

Spoke with Comey. He wants to speak with Special Counsel prior to public testimony. Hearing Wed postponed. @GOPoversight”


Politico reported this story yesterday but apparently changed their headline because’s link to the story no longer works:

Drudge Report noted “Comey testimony postponed so he can meet with Mueller”.

Former FBI Head and Comey’s predecessor at the FBI, Robert Mueller, is now the appointed Russia Investigation Special Council.  The question arises why Comey would want to speak with Mueller before Congress?

Comey is now famous for having investigated and refused to press charges against Bill and Hillary Clinton at least four different times in his career in Washington, DC while his family appears to have benefitted nicely.  Meuller is now famous for having delivered highly enriched uranium to Russia during his career as Head of the FBI and also is known for caving to the demands of Muslim groups during this same time span.

Now we are supposed to expect that these two fair minded individuals are going to meet within the next week before Comey speaks to Congress and this is all ok? Do you think that Comey will have the conversation recorded or will it be like the discussion Comey had with Hillary Clinton last year in regards to her criminal acts while as Secretary of State and not record the discussion?

Apparently far left Politico thinks its a big deal because they changed their reporting so not to highlight this meeting.
