Limbaugh Asks For Memos From Comey’s Meetings With Barack Obama
1 week ago T D Comments Off on Limbaugh Asks For Memos From Comey’s Meetings With Barack Obama
The New York Times cited memos written by former FBI Director James Comey in which he claims President Trump pressured him to end the investigation into Michael Flynn. The allegations caused controversy and outrage by many Americans, including Rush Limbaugh, who questioned whether the American people will get to see former Comey’s memos from meetings with former President Barack Obama.
Congress is now vowing to subpoena the memos and have Comey testify publicly following his firing by Trump, reports Fox News.
“If the FBI director’s been keeping memos on meetings with everybody and he doesn’t run the Department of Justice. I mean, we’re not talking about J. Edgar Hoover here, or are we?” Limbaugh asked.
The former FBI Director has also been compared to Hoover before by New York Post columnist Michael Goodwin, who called him “J. Edgar Comey” a few months ago.
In his column Wednesday, Goodwin wrote:
“It is noteworthy that he never complained about Trump until he was fired. He learned his Hoover lessons well, which is why I called him J. Edgar Comey two months ago. Maybe he really was, like his famed predecessor, too big to fire.”
“Ironically, one reason Trump fired him is that Comey refused to investigate leaks from within the administration of classified material, some of it bearing on national security. My view is that Comey may have been hesitant to investigate because he knew some of the leaks came from the FBI.”
Explaining his comparison, Goodwin said that Hoover created the FBI, but no one “could get rid of him,” adding that six presidents wanted to fire him but Hoover died in office.
“He set up this power center where he was above accountability. I think that’s what Comey was beginning to get to,” said Goodwin, adding that if Comey kept memos on meetings with former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, those should also be released.
