McCabe thinks he didn't have conflict with his wife

quote:

Mr. McCabe. Director Comey was concerned that the focus on the allegations that the Wall Street Journal published about my wife and her run for State senate created a distraction or an appearance that he thought would be negative for the case. I did not agree with that assessment. I did not agree with --

Mr. Meadows. So you didn't have a conflict.

Mr. McCabe. No, sir. I did not have a conflict.

Loretta Lynch vs Comey
quote:

Q And I did want to just kind of keep it basic, but I did want to kind of jump to this while we're on it, because we've been calling this an investigation. I know, I'm sure your familiar with some discussion of whether you ever instructed Director Comey to call the Midyear Exam investigation a matter. Are you familiar with his -- I think he's testified to this -- that you instructed, I believe in September of 2015, Director Comey to call the Midyear Exam investigation a matter?

A I heard his testimony on it and that was the first time that he had ever indicated to me, in my understanding -- he may have told others -- that he had that impression of our conversation.

Q So you do not believe you ever instructed him to call it a matter?

A I did not. I have never instructed a witness as to what to say specifically. Never have, never will. In the meeting that I had with the Director, we were discussing how best to keep Congress informed of progress and discuss requesting resources for the Department overall. We were going to testify separately. And the concern that both of us had in the meeting that I was having with him in September of 2015 was how to have that discussion without stepping across the Department policy of confirming or denying an investigation, separate policy from testifying. Obviously, we wanted to testify fully, fulsomely, and provide the information that was needed, but we were not at that point, in September of 2015, ready to confirm that there was an investigation into the email matter -- or deny it. We were sticking with policy, and that was my position on that. I didn't direct anyone to use specific phraseology. When the Director asked me how to best to handle that, I said: What I have been saying is we have received a referral and we are working on the matter, working on the issue, or we have all the resources we need to handle the matter, handle the issue. So that was the suggestion that I made to him.

Q So you were basically surprised when you learned that he had said that you instructed him to call this a matter.

A I was quite surprised that he characterized it in that way. We did have a conversation about it, so I wasn't surprised that he remembered that we met about it and talked about it. But I was quite surprised that that was his characterization of it, because that was not how it was conveyed to him, certainly not how it was intended. Mr. Jordan. Excuse me. Ms. Lynch, so in the meeting with the FBI Director you referred to the Clinton investigation as a matter -- I just want to make sure I understand -- but you did not instruct the Director when he testified in front of Congress to call it a matter. Is that accurate? Ms. Lynch. I said that I had been referring to -- I had been using the phraseology: We've received a referral. Because we received a public referral, which we were confirming. And that is Department policy, that when we receive a public referral from any agency, that we confirm the referral but we neither confirm nor deny the investigation. That's actually a standard DOJ policy. Mr. Jordan. I understand all that. Mr. Lynch. So in the meeting with the Director, which was, again, around September -- I don't recall the date -- of 2015, it was very early in the investigation, I expressed the view that it was, in my opinion, too early for us to confirm that we had an investigation. At some point in the course of investigations, as you all know from your oversight, it becomes such common knowledge that we talk about it using the language of investigation and things, but at that point we had not done that and we were not confirming or denying it. We weren't denying it at all. There was, just essentially, in my view, we were following the policy. And when the Director asked me about my thoughts, I said, yes, we had to be -- we had to be completely cooperative and fulsome with Congress for both of us, and that we needed to provide as much information as we could on the issue of resources. We anticipated questions about budget, what resources we had or that we needed, and that we could have that discussion in the context of handling the referral that we had received without going into the nature of the investigation or the terms of the investigation or the subjects of the investigation at that time

Someone's lying.

It is a near impossibility the "call it a matter" conversation was unwitnessed. Was the detail of attending witnesses explored in either Lynch or Comey's testimony?

I am seeing all of the ridiculous ThanQ, and Q sent me crap on Collins twitter post. People are saying Q called this; when anyone with a functioning brain could see Doug Collins has been dropping transcripts for awhile.

The Q sent me type posts are embarrassing and make me cringe.

Just now catching up. Lynch is going to have trouble squirming her way out of this. Comey is screwed regardless.

Depends on witnesses' corroboration. But at least one of these two has some delicate dancing to do.

This is why, you vapid twit:

Collins has been the one to release the transcripts, yes, but previously no one knew when it would be coming. This latest batch was different in that we knew to expect another round.

In this case, it was 8 different transcripts early.

#3333 was posted 8 days ago.

So thirsty. It's an awful look.

I dunno. I can see Lynch emphasizing the word “matter” heavily, sending an unmistakable message to Comey. Thus he would walk away with the impression how to proceed. Notice Comey never testified that Lynch specifically directed him to use that word.

These people aren’t stupid. I think there’s just enough wiggle room here that there’s no smoking gun.

And it just happened to turn out exactly how Comey predicted. Amazing.

The problem is two fold.

1. It's not what you know. It is what you can prove.
2. It's not enough to know that someone is lying. You have to be able to figure out exactly who it is that is lying.
