Michael Schmidt, the New York Times “journalist” behind the alleged “Trump-Comey Memo”, told fake news anchor, Brian Williams, that he has NOT seen the memo Comey allegedly wrote. Schmidt stumbled over his words as he commented to Williams, “Someone that had seen [the memo] had recounted details to me.” You can watch a video of Schmidt below: (Video) GotNews reports: Schmidt has been called out for getting a story wildly wrong before thanks to his anonymous sources. Schmidt, citing his anonymous federal law enforcement sources, claimed that one of the San Bernardino terrorists had talked about jihad openly. She didn’t.
Something that occurs to me, and I´m surprised nobody else has brought this up: Even if Comey can produce a ´memo´ this would be nothing more than something he scrawled on a piece of paper. There is no assurance it really represents notes taken at the time, or even if it was that it reflects what was actually said. Comey could write down anything at any time and claim it to be such a memo.
li·bel ´lib?l noun 1. LAW a published false statement that is damaging to a person´s reputation; a written defamation.
I´m not a lawyer, but the circumstances in this case appear to be such that President Trump could have a serious case of libel against the NYT and this journalist. They printed a false assertion without any confirmation or evidence, and they did so with malicious intent knowing (actualy pre-celebrating) that it would be damaging to the President. Trump has successfully won such cases before. I´d like to see him become the new owner of the NYT.
It is Jayson Blair deja vu all over again: history repeating itself, first as tragedy, then as farce. The Old Faithful of Fake News spouts again -- and gets caught again and again and again. Welcome to the Enemedia Unreality Show, season eternity, episode infinity.
Everyone, why do you think Obama brought Jarrett back to DC. This is all Obama´s doing. Please remember that the day the fake news hit about Trump telling Russians secrets and the same day this memo came out was the day that the information about Seth Rich hit the street. I´m telling you that all this fake news was to a smoke screen so that you would not pay attention to the real story of the day.....Seth Rich.
#10 - Exactly! And in so doing the democRats have re-defined the term “Preposterous” and in the process expossed all the J. Fred Goebbels J. School deciples and their ring-kissing RINOs who got sucked into the vortex of democRat lies! (can you say Kasich?) This is the new day that will live in infamy!
How much proof do you people need? We´ve already been told that Comey is a person who always writes down the details of his meetings -either during or shortly afterwords ,while it´s still fresh in his mind. I think that is something they teach in law school.
Time to impeach the President! I think they teach that at organ-grinder monkey class, too.
Numbers of us have already expressed our opinion that the memo could have been written at any time and it would still be a matter of “he said, he said”. Bear little weight.
Comey is realizing now that others know that had his “memo” described a Trump request to cancel the Flynn investigation that rose to the level of interference with that investigation, he (Comey) was required to inform Congress. He didn’t.
If he persists with this memo he puts himself in jeopardy.
He’s kind of in the soup either way, isn’t he. But backing down on his memo, admitting it doesn’t exist or that it doesn’t say Trump broke any law, only costs him face. The other could cost him far more.
We already knew he hadn´t seen it, he said so in the article. He also said his source only read parts of the memo to him and that it was unclassified. It is outrageous he would print such an inflammatory story without actually seeing the evidence. He didn´t even hear the whole thing so couldn´t possibly have known the context which as we know is critical. Fact is no one has seen it, yet "predictably deranged democrats and their unhinged allies" (h/t Sean Hannity) are so disturbed and screeching impeachment all over hell and half of Georgia. Some of those unhinged allies are Republicans - John McCain (D-Mole).
This whole thing has gotten way out of hand and Michael Schmidt should be chastised and shamed for publishing with such thin sourcing. Any "journalist" worth his salt would have insisted on seeing the memo before running the story. It all may be true but nobody, including Schmidt, knows for sure.
And Pinch was just running around, practically setting his hair on fire to get subscribers who cancelled subscription to come back- "Give us another chance- We promise to push Liberalism and global warming to the hilt- After all! We hate Trump, too! If you´ll just renew your subscriptions!" Waaaaa!
What a disaster of a "Noose Paper" Pinch has put around his neck.
No fiction writer would come up with nonsense like this.
When I was in the Air Force (1974-1986), Memos for Record were considered a form of Official Correspondence, with rules of format and distribution. Format was simple, just state the topic and summarize the action. Distribution: One copy to your files, and one sent to the other party/parties involved. That way EVERYONE knew what happened and had the same record of it.
Seems to me, since the Dems/Enemedia do not have the votes to do anything but screech like evil retards, that they should just be ignored or possibly given a middle finger in passing. No sane person is compelled to take their witch hunts or mock trials seriously, much less participate in them. Let them screech, knowing the Electoral College landslide will stand until 2020, and that we have trumped their former power to deceive with votes to spare. Best, just ignore them and get on with the work of reversing all BarackHussein´s damage.
If the memo exists, I´d have to believe he dictated it into his phone or used a computer so that metadata would exist to prove WHEN he made the memo. If in fact he wanted to leave a paper trail or build a case, he´d make sure it could be documented and verified. I doubt he used handwritten notes. If, as he claims (although I can´t be 100% sure he claims this because I haven´t spoken with him), it was his practice to create these memos after private discussions with important people, then he should be able to produce hundred or thousands of memos from conversations with others. If there ARE no others, then we have to wonder WHY ONLY Trump.
This is not "fake news"! This is not lying! This is sedition! The news media is overtly trying to take down the government! There is no other way to put this and anything less is sticking your head in the sand! Our MSM is actively anti-American!!!!
The democrat media & McCain have been crying wolf every day for 10 months. Now no one believes a word they say. A couple of years ago I heard Obama say he had his own little army, could this be the non media?
Doesn´t matter. Now that the Republicans have caved on a Special Counsel, Dems will block everything claiming the PDT is "still under investigation". Meanwhile Meuller will be setting Perjury traps left and right to "Scooter Libby" somebody.
Unless and until someone in the DOJ starts identifying and prosecuting the leakers we are screwed.
The White House on Monday formally sent the nomination of Christopher Wray to be FBI director to the Senate. The Justice Department released a statement from Wray, who said he was “honored and humbled” by the nomination and looks forward to his confirmation by the Senate. “From my earliest days working with agents as a line prosecutor to my time working with them at the Department of Justice in the aftermath of 9/11, I have been inspired by the men and women of the FBI – inspired by their professionalism, integrity, courage, and sacrifice for the public.” Wray said. “If
The al-Qaeda chapter that hacked an Atlanta man to death two years ago said in a new "code of conduct" for jihadists that killing American nationals in target countries is a "foremost priority" for the terror group. Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent was formally launched in 2014 after al-Qaeda meticulously brought various militant groups under its umbrella to concentrate on operations in Burma, Pakistan, India and Bangladesh. They were only designated a terrorist organization by the United States in June 2016, a full 16 months after the murder of Avijit Roy. In February 2015, Bangladeshi-American secularist blogger Roy was hacked
Al Gore is ‘an idiot’ who only made his vast fortune just because he happened to get lucky by obsessing about climate change. Possibly we’d all guessed this already. Now it has been confirmed by an expert in the field of finance – Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway vice chairman and fellow investment billionaire Charlie Munger. Munger, who was speaking at an informal investors’ Q & A – recorded here – clearly does not rate Gore’s intelligence or investment acumen. “Al Gore has come into you fellas business, Munger said. “He has made $3 or $400 million in your business. And
President Trump and high-level administration officials are using a lighter touch to help the Republican healthcare bill through the Senate as compared with the House, putting tremendous pressure on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as skeptical GOP lawmakers threaten to defect on a key procedural vote this week. "Sink or swim, this bill rests on the shoulders of leadership," one GOP Senate aide told the Washington Examiner. "It is their product with minimal White House involvement." The White House has publicly backed the bill and expressed optimism that an Obamacare overhaul could advance before lawmakers leave for the July 4 recess
Manhattan´s District Attorney has slammed new Republican legislation that ´plays into the hands of terrorists´ by allowing anyone with a firearm licence to carry concealed weapons in other states- even in those with stricter licensing requirements. Cy Vance said that it was a ´dangerous ´ bill that is ´supported I am sure by ISIS.´ He made the comments yesterday while speaking to John Catsimatidis on his 970 AM radio show about the GOP plan. He said that security would be seriously compromised by the legislation because some states - like New York - have stricter licencing laws than others yet
The Assad regime in Syria is preparing for another chemical weapons attack on its own people, the White House warned in an ominous statement on Monday night. The attack will be similar to one in April which prompted the US to launch missile strikes on a military base, the statement said, and will likely harm ´innocent children and civilians´. ´The United States has identified potential preparations for another chemical weapons attack by the Assad regime that would likely result in the mass murder of civilians, including innocent children. The activities are similar to preparations the regime made before its April
Senate Republicans´ plan to repeal and replace Obamacare has put Medicaid in the spotlight, thanks to proposals including a move to let states impose work requirements on low-income recipients. Medicaid "went way above the poverty line to many able-bodied Americans," White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told ABC News program "This Week" on Sunday. "If they are able-bodied and they want to work, then they´ll have employer-sponsored benefits like you and I do." Yet most Medicaid recipients who can work already are working even without such a requirement, according to data from the Henry J. Kaiser Family Foundation, which notes that
The Better Care Reconciliation Act of 2017, the Senate Republican replacement to the Affordable Care Act, is estimated to reduce the deficit by $321 billion from 2017 to 2026, according to the Congressional Budget Office´s scoring of the legislation. In comparison to the Obamacare replacement, the American Health Care Act, passed by the House, this bill would save an additional $202 billion over this time period. During this span, the budget office also projects that spending will be reduced by $1 trillion and government revenues will be reduced by $701 billion. The legislation´s greatest savings come from reducing spending on
Senator Bernie Sanders appeared unhappy to be questioned by a Fox News reporter about an FBI investigation into actions by the Vermonter and his wife. Sanders´ wife Jane was the president of a now-defunct college in Vermont, and is accused of distorting school donations in order to secure a bank loan, FoxNews.com reported. Jane and Bernie Sanders both retained attorneys to deal with a federal investigation into Mrs. Sanders actions. Investigators are also looking into whether Sen. Sanders´ office inappropriately tried to pressure the bank to approve the loan. Fox News Senate producer Kara Rowland encountered Sanders in Washington and
White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Monday delivered his press briefing off-camera once again, eliciting some protests but giving no clear answer about when filming will be allowed to resume. It’s been a week now since Spicer gave an on-camera briefing. “Why don’t we turn the cameras on, Sean?” CNN’s Jim Acosta asked several times during the briefing. “Why don’t we turn the cameras on?” “Can we have the cameras on, Sean? Can we have the cameras on?” After several such outbursts by Acosta, another reporter asked Spicer about the White House’s decision. “We will continue to have a
Hillary Clinton and aligned political operatives manufactured the illusion of a connection between Russian entities and the Trump campaign/organization. Those manufactured points of evidence, including a sketchy Russian Dossier, were used by the political intelligence community (Clapper, Brennan Comey) to open an investigation of nothingness – to nowhere. (Photos) The mere existence of the investigation was then used as the originating point for a series of media intel leaks (the narrative) intended to cloud and damage the Trump campaign/organization. CNN, The Washington Post and New York Times led the charge: Washington (CNN) – The FBI last year used a dossier
Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas had stern words for his colleagues when the Court declined to hear a case challenging California’s handgun laws, saying that the jurists do not understand the importance of self-defense. The case, supported by the National Rifle Association, involves San Diego resident Edward Peruta, who challenged his county’s refusal to grant him permission to carry a concealed firearm outside of his home. “For those of us who work in marbled halls, guarded constantly by a vigilant and dedicated police force, the guarantees of the Second Amendment might seem antiquated and superfluous,” Thomas wrote after most members
President Donald Trump broke a long standing White House tradition of hosting a dinner to celebrate Ramadan, a Muslim religious holiday. Hosting an Iftar dinner to mark the end of Ramadan fasting is a tradition that started in the Clinton years and was continued by Presidents Bush and Obama. Over the past two decades presidents have honored the holy day by hosting such a dinner. Thomas Jefferson was the first president noted in history to host Itfar in 1805 with an invitation to the dinner stating ´Dinner will be on the table precisely at sun-set – ´ the invitation read. ´The favour
A feminist magazine is calling on all white women to “do their part to prevent white supremacy” and abort their white babies. This is sick beyond words. The feminist Medusa Magazine reported: In a progressive society, it is often white families that stand in the way of equality and justice. Systemic white supremacy depends, first and foremost, on the white family unit. When white conquerors forcefully penetrated the indigenous, egalitarian homeland of the Native peoples of America, they were quick to replicate their white societies, initiating their parasitism by establishing white plantations, headed by white fathers, submissive white mothers, and,
An angry couple assaulted a Georgia fast food owner and her daughter outside a restaurant over a chicken and fries order — leaving the two women battered and authorities in disbelief. “I have a severely broken nose that requires surgery,” Quik Chik owner Jeanette Norris told the Daily News Sunday. “My daughter is scared. She was hit on her right side and has a black eye.” Norris was violently attacked at around 3 p.m. Thursday at the restaurant in Baxley after a couple complained about an order — prompting an argument that led suspect, Latasha Smith, to slap and punch
Actor and filmmaker Rob Reiner was shredded by social media users over the weekend after he called for an “all out war” to resist President Donald Trump. Writing on Twitter Sunday, the All in the Family star mentioned a Fox News report about the Trump campaign’s alleged collusion with Russia during the 2016 election. “When Fox says that DT colluding with the enemy is not a crime, the fight to save Democracy is now an all out war. US-Stay strong. #Treason,” he wrote. (Tweet) Reiner’s remarks were slammed by several social media users, many of them suggesting that the actor’s tweet
Have you ever had an old grand-uncle that you haven´t seen in ages and that you have almost completely forgotten about suddenly show up from out of nowhere? His return quickly reminds you why you originally found him so annoying since he is still obsessed about the same grudges upon which he still continues expounding in an aimless manner. In this case it is former liberal talk show host Phil Donahue who appeared with Brian Stelter on his CNN Reliable Sources show on June 25. Yes, it was the same old by the numbers predictable liberal Phil and, of course,
I’ve been talking about the importance of protecting against voting-machine hacks since 2002. And now, finally, people are starting to take me seriously. The move to paperless voting started in response to the Florida “hanging chad” fiasco in the 2000 presidential election. Some people (like me) thought this was a mistake, but such concerns were often dismissed. Now, apparently, you can’t be paranoid enough. As Politico’s Bob King noted, while 10 years ago critics of paperless voting were called paranoid, now both parties are worried. It remains true that there is no actual evidence that a single vote was changed by hackers
The Obama adventures continue! Barack Obama and his family went rafting on the Ayung River in Bali on Monday amid their nine-day vacation to Indonesia, where the former president lived for several years as a child. Obama, wife Michelle and their daughters, Sasha and Malia, were invited to vacation in Indonesia by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo, who also asked the family to visit the presidential Bogor Palace in West Java during their trip, according to ABC News. Obama will also speak at an Indonesian Diaspora Congress in Jakarta on July 1. Obama moved to Indonesia in 1967 at age 6
At last we know why Chicago’s homicide level is so out of control: Gangs, not police control the streets. The gangs know it; the police know it; and now, thanks to DNAinfo.com/Chicago, we know it. A week ago, Chicago street gangs held a huge party in a park, with a thousand people attending, some brandishing firearms, terrifying neighbors for hours. The police sent 25 squad cars, yet were outnumbered and unable to really do anything. (snip)Obviously, there is no political will to take back control of the streets. So everyone gets the message that gangs rule. No wonder the murder
The New York Post has an explosive report on the infamous “dossier” that tried to smear Donald Trump in order to swing the presidential election to Hillary Clinton. The source of the dossier is a Democratic Party opposition research firm called Fusion GPS: "The Senate Judiciary Committee earlier this month threatened to subpoena the firm, Fusion GPS, after it refused to answer questions and provide records to the panel identifying who financed the error-ridden dossier, which was circulated during the election and has sparked much of the Russia scandal now engulfing the White House. Fusion GPS was on the payroll of
A U.S. warship struck by a container vessel in Japanese waters failed to respond to warning signals or take evasive action before a collision that killed seven of its crew, according to a report of the incident by the Philippine cargo ship´s captain. Multiple U.S. and Japanese investigations are under way into how the guided missile destroyer USS Fitzgerald and the much larger ACX Crystal container ship collided in clear weather south of Tokyo Bay in the early hours of June 17. In the first detailed account from one of those directly involved, the cargo ship´s captain said the ACX Crystal had
The Supreme Court said Monday that most of President Trump’s travel ban executive order can go into effect, delivering the first major victory to the new administration on perhaps his most controversial policy to date. Justices said the lower court rulings that blocked Mr. Trump’s policy were far too broad, and said the president can begin to enforce his ban against foreigners who don’t already have some ties to the U.S. That means the president can begin denying visas to visitors from six countries — Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen — who don’t already have family in the U.S., or some other prior connection such as
The New York Daily News’ senior justice writer Shaun King blasted Christians Monday for perpetrating white supremacy for their support of President Donald Trump’s immigration halt. King put out a series of tweets accusing Christians who supported the halt of “fake faith” after the Supreme Court allowed Trump’s immigration ban to go into effect. (Snip) “To support a ban on immigrants & refugees, while calling yourself a Christian, is not faith, it’s white supremacy disguised as religion,” King tweeted.
