Comey is Not a Credible Witness

By Jay Sekulow1496880902209

Former FBI Director James Comey is preparing to tell his side of the story before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday regarding his encounter with President Trump.  His prepared remarks were released today – and make no mistake about it – this is Comey’s opportunity to get back in the spotlight – to even the score after President Trump correctly fired him last month.

As I have said many times, Comey is not a credible witness. In a blog I posted when Comey was fired, I made it clear: Comey has been coy with Congress, inserted himself into the political debate like no other FBI director in history, and has quite frankly become untrustworthy in office.

His testimony again makes clear what I've said all along. Comey sufferers from selective disclosure disease. When it benefits him – and puts him in the spotlight – he'll talk about it. When it doesn't, he selectively ignores it.

Comey has had to correct his testimony numerous times after appearing before Congress in the past. He better be careful as he tries to clear his name in his testimony on Thursday.  He will be under oath and under scrutiny. We will see if what he says before Congress now is in sync with what he has said in the past.

One thing he must remember is that his oath is not just to tell the truth, but to tell the whole truth, something he has repeatedly had to go back to Congress and the American people and rectify in the past.

Here’s my prediction concerning the hearing:  Comey’s testimony won’t change any minds on Capitol Hill. Those on the Left and those focused on derailing President Trump and his Administration’s agenda will embrace Comey’s testimony. 

But those who know the truth – those who understand that President Trump did nothing wrong in having open and frank discussions with Comey – will see Comey’s remarks for what they really are – another attempt to put himself in the spotlight – to make himself the center of attention – a last ditch pathetic attempt to rehabilitate his reputation that he alone is responsible for shattering.

06.08.2017 UPDATE: Today a new bombshell leak of privileged information was revealed. Fired FBI Director Comey just admitted under oath that he had a privileged memo leaked to the media. He testified that he did so to manipulate the situation and force the appointment of a Special Counsel. It’s clear Comey is part of the Resistance. He is intentionally undermining the President. He is a leaker.
