James Comey Never Kept Detailed Memos on His Conversations With Obama… Like He Did With Trump
Why didn’t FBI Director James Comey document his conversations with Obama? He continues to prove to the American people that President Donald Trump’s decision to fire him was the correct thing to do.
This only makes it look like Comey did it due to political bias, which he claims in his written testimony he doesn’t have. Keep talking Comey, you are digging that hole even deeper.
The Daily Caller: Comey said he only spoke with Obama twice during his presidency, but talked to Trump nine times within four months of his.
He explained why he documented the conversations he had with Trump.
“I felt compelled to document my first conversation with the President-Elect in a memo,” Comey writes. “To ensure accuracy, I began to type it on a laptop in an FBI vehicle outside Trump Tower the moment I walked out of the meeting. Creating written records immediately after one-on-one conversations with Mr. Trump was my practice from that point forward.”
“This had not been my practice in the past,” he continued. “I spoke alone with President Obama twice in person (and never on the phone) — once in 2015 to discuss law enforcement policy issues and a second time, briefly, for him to say goodbye in late 2016. In neither of those circumstances did I memorialize the discussions. I can recall nine one-on-one conversations with President Trump in four months — three in person and six on the phone.”
“I immediately prepared an unclassified memo of the conversation about Flynn and discussed the matter with FBI senior leadership,” Comey said in his prepared remarks.
