Remember Mike Flynn-‘I definitely have a story to tell.’ Gulliani himself apparently now has a story to tell.
We’ve seen weeks of headlines pointing to Rudy Giuliani coming under increasing legal fire for his antics with imprisoned alleged criminal Reza Zarrab, who has financial connections to Donald Trump. Now comes word from two consistently accurate sources that Giuliani is looking to make a deal with the FBI, but that James Comey doesn’t want or need Giuliani’s cooperation in order to move forward.
“First came word from former Bill Clinton White House staffer Claude Taylor, whose inside sources have tended to prove correct. He tweeted today that “Just spoke to a New York source and Rudy Giuliani is in legal jeopardy and is desperate to make a deal but James Comey is having none of it” (link). Then came confirmation from Jester, an online political pundit who also has a strong track record of calling these things correctly: “Rudy ‘Cyberman’ Giuliani is apparently in a legal quagmire and is desperate to ‘make a deal’. Comey isn’t interested” (link). This tells us quite a bit about just how far the FBI’s case against Trump and his associates has progressed.”
“As Palmer Report has previously reported, Reza Zarrab is currently sitting in a prison cell in the United States, awaiting trial on charges of criminal corruption (link). Zarrab operated his alleged criminal empire out of Donald Trump’s building in Istanbul, suggesting a financial connection between Trump and Zarrab’s crimes.”
“Rudy Giuliani’s involvement in the Donald Trump campaign is well documented. But two weeks ago, after Zarrab hired Giuliani’s law firm to represent him in his criminal trial (source: Bloomberg), a judge began asking just what Giuliani’s role truly is with Zarrab (source: NY Times). Then came the revelation that Giuliani had tried to cut a deal behind the backs of prosecutors (source: NBC News), and suddenly Rudy is up to his neck in legal problems.”
Rather ironic. Guliani is begging Comey for a deal-but isn’t getting it. If this is true, it’s some turnabout. Remember with the Comey letter, Giuliani was intimately involved in forcing Comey’s hand.
Roger Stone on the Comey letter:
“Comey had no choice. The NYPD had and has a copy of the 650,000 emails. Comey’s statement, days before the election, that there’s nothing in there, is a bald-faced lie. This is just supposition, but I think the FBI director looked at the content and said they’re going to hang me if I don’t do something.”
Rudy’s fingerprints were all over that one-he had telegraphed the letter prior to it being released-as did Trump’s daughter in law. Erik Prince’s were as well, to boot.
So this time, Comey has the whip hand. To be sure, Comey himself has destroyed his own legacy with that letter.
“Some with ties to the federal government believe Comey’s actions during both the Clinton and Trump investigations have forever tarnished him. “Comey was regarded as an accomplished and dedicated public servant,” but the Clinton letter “really marred his reputation,” a source with ties to the National Security Council under Obama tells Newsweek.”
“His obituary, if it had been written a year ago, would have been one of incredible public service,” says a source close to the FBI. “But now it will be marked—not stained, but marked—by being the centerpiece of an enormous political debacle.”
Regarding the question asked:
“CAN FBI DIRECTOR JAMES COMEY ESCAPE THE CLINTON EMAIL DEBACLE?”
The very simple answer is-no.
P.S. As we saw in my poll out last week, the long awaited poll results are in, and right now I’m just 11 points down vs. Peter King (GOP-NY-District 2). And the voters don’t even know who I am yet.
There is nothing more important in getting answers to Trump-Russia collusion than a Democratic House in 2019. Please donate to help me in my part of the effort to fight for a Dem House.
Thank you. We must have a Dem House. And so, we will
