VIA| The “Comey Memo” narrative is a story the New York Times supposedly got from anonymous sources close to Comey.
The gist of this unproven liberal media narrative is that Trump asked Comey to stop the investigation of Michael Flynn for a political reason.
This story is dubious for multiple reasons.
First of all, if this were to have happened, it was Comey’s responsibility to immediately report obstruction of justice.
If he were not to, he’d be guilty of obstruction of justice as well.
This piece of new evidence debunks the Comey memo even further.
Under oath, on May 3rd, James Comey testified that he has never been asked to stop investing someone for a political reason.
He said very clearly “It’s not happened in my experience.”
If the Comey memo were to be true, Comey would have thus lied under oath.
Bottom line : The Comey memo is looking more and more dubious as more evidence contradicting the claim comes out.
