Comey Caught in HUGE LIE in ABC Interview About Papadopoulos and Fusion GPS

Fired FBI Director James Comey held his first interview on ABC Sunday night promoting his new book, “A Higher Loyalty.”

Not one hardball was thrown at Comey, naturally since Stephanopoulos is a long time Democrat operative and Clinton sycophant.

Comey just doesn’t know when to shut up; we have caught ANOTHER whopper from the former FBI chief from his ABC interview.

On Sunday, Stephanopoulos asked Comey if the Steele dossier triggered the FBI’s Russia investigation.

Comey responded with another whopper.

Crooked cop Comey told Stephanopoulos that it was the Papadopoulos information that came in late July that triggered the investigation. He also went on to say the FBI didn’t get any information that’s part of the Steele dossier until after that.


LIES!

Partial transcript via ABC:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: While this is all going on in July of 2016, the FBI also opens an investigation into the Trump campaign. Why?

JAMES COMEY: Well– to be more clear, we opened an investigation into whether there were any Americans associated in any way with the Trump campaign who were working with Russia as part of Russia’s effort to influence our election. And so in late July, the FBI got information that there was somebody who had had– was a foreign policy advisor named Papadopoulos to the Trump campaign.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: George Papadopoulos.

JAMES COMEY: Right, who had been talking to someone in London about getting dirt that the Russians had on Hillary Clinton as part of their effort to influence our campaign– the– our election. And the reason that was important was that was long before the– there was any public indication that the Russians had material they were going to dump, which they started dumping in mid-June.

And so we opened, our counterintelligence division, in late July, an investigation to try and figure out– we know the Russians are trying to mess with our election. Are any Americans working with them, trying to help them?

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: You also had had your eye on Carter Page, who had also been working with the Trump campaign.

JAMES COMEY: Correct.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: And what was your concern there?

JAMES COMEY: Similarly, trying to figure out is he in any way coordinating with the Russians, as part of their effort to influence our– our election? We hear the word “collusion” all the time. “Collusion” is not a word that’s familiar to me from my work. The question is, is anybody conspiring or aiding and abetting, helping, the Russians accomplish their goal of interfering in the American election? That’s what the counterintelligence investigation was about.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: S– so what impact did the Steele– the so-called Steele dossier have on the FBI investigation? Did that trigger the FBI investigation in any way?

JAMES COMEY: No. No, in fact, as I said, the information that triggered it was the Papadopoulos information that came in late July. The FBI didn’t get any information that’s part of the so-called Steele dossier, as I understand it, until after that. And so the investigation was triggered entirely separately from the Steele dossier.

This is a HUGE LIE.

As previously reported, Republican investigators have evidence dossier author Christopher Steele met with the FBI on July 5th 2016 which is the EXACT SAME DAY former FBI Director James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton.

John Solomon of The Hill reported this bombshell news:

Republican investigators say they have evidence that Steele first approached the FBI with his allegations on July 5, 2016, the same day then-FBI Director James Comey announced he would not pursue criminal charges against Clinton for passing more than 100 classified documents through her private email server.

The FISA memo revealed that if not for Hillary’s phony dossier, the FBI would never have sought a spy warrant on Carter Page. This is McCabe’s own words under oath.

Comey is a liar and and a leaker; he should be prosecuted and imprisoned, not bankrolling from a book.
