1. This report will very likely not benefit the Trump Administration in any way.

In fact, it's likely to do just the opposite. Let's help make that happen, OK?

Clinton baggage and innuendo from rumors was just enough for him to drag her down by his unjustified accusations and it was obvious.

So it appears the early conclusion of the IG report -- via Bloomberg -- is that Comey/FBI took actions that negatively impacted Hillary Clinton in 2016

-Mark Murray



And I specifically said We can't divine Comey's motive:

*This is the truth and the correct narrative. Comey's motives and what he is doing know is largely immaterial.

Are we debating Comey's culpability ?

I will give him the benefit of the doubt and believe he didn't intentionally undermine Hillary's campaign but I would be insulting his intelligence and my own if I believed he was unaware of the consequences of his actions.

...saying that motive is immaterial doesn't make the headline any less false.

19. The important point here is that this means Trump and Ghouliani can't spin this as the FBI

attacking Trump...which is what they are trying to do...so you are completely correct. if it hurt Hillary, it sure as hell didn't hurt Trump who loved him some Comey until Comey failed to take orders on the Russian investigation by 'letting Flynn go'.

82. I read it carefully.

YMMV. When a person tosses an F Bomb your way it is logical to assume he or she is not doing it with the best of intentions. It is logical to assume they are doing it to intimidate.

All over a word, smdh.

Not that it's here or there but I was doing four things at once when I started this thread. If someone pointed it out to me nicely I would have edited my post.

111. What is the logical inference if somebody misstates something and refuses to correct it?

And claiming that if only people were nice to you, you would have gladly done it, means you don't actually care about being correct for it's own sake. At least you aren't claiming to take the high road as you did upthread.

I believe it's referred to as multitasking


Instead of politely pointing out my alleged error the poster threw shade my way. Some posters had the perspicacity to see it:


It is this HARSH, parental, shaming mode of interacting that constipates open dialogue

There is nothing in that post about your motives.
Your OP headline, on the other hand, is about Comey's motives, when the IG report says no such thing.

Brooklynite, this rant is triggered by your comment style but by no means is only fueled by it. I see too much BE RIGHT, negative and argumentative squabbling here.

I am old enough to remember graceful, engaging discourse. I suspect "the hammer" response style effectively keeps some people from speaking here at all.

Perhaps in the future, we can all soften up our comments in a manner that invites enthusiasm to correct a message when needed.

Transactional analysis is a good topic of study. Parent Child Adult modes of communicating.

When we speak in an accusatory, parental tone, we invite an uncooperative, childish response.

It takes time and thought to write and post here. Can we appreciate the effort and message first and suggest a tweak.

Frankly, I wonder when we are hard and even unkind sometimes to each other on this forum if we have lost our way.

I participate in forums elsewhere where the community feels safe to engage, is appreciative, and encouraging. We work as a team to peel away the detracting information and misused words in order to clarify topics.

Bad feelings over a word choice?

Invisible intentions cannot be known.

Can we be more loving always towards each other.

Now, where is my fencing gear? Humor is so much more healing and fun

Sadly, less democracy and freedom follows less emotionally safe discourse.

Authoritarians know this all too well.

Do we feel safe voicing our opinions?

If not, this is a huge red flag.

I could see how my original post could be misleading. If somebody pointed it out to me nicely I would have included an edit in my original post.

I will abide by people questioning my phrasing. I will not and should not have to abide by people questioning my motives.


I don't believe James Comey intended to undermine Hillary's campaign, but undermine it he did.

I am now considered old. R ducing research to sound bites for a hurried and harried audience is no simple task.

I appreciated your report and flew by the word "to" becauses I don't look for writing moyives from this community.

Thank you for posting.

I spent hours researching an article exposing ALL of the child detention center violations that included a tool to resea ch each facility, history, and some other shocking news.

You can read story here

CAREGIVER BACKGROUND CHECKS at juvenile detention centers not being done properly. And a host of even worse violations.

https://upload.democraticunderground.com/100210730568

The media is not covering this story.


It is difficult to write, copy, and paste on this ipad.

The article got a few comments and 20 recs.

So I ask, why bother.

Did you hear the rage from those who damn well knew as they watched Comey sabatoge the future of this country!

So what. The damage he did can never ever be made right. He did his dirty deed & we watch now as our once great respected country has become a hellhole that stretches from our allies abroad to our new & growing Nazi encampments for little kids.


He tore the candidate of Human Rights from our future & gave it to a fking soulless madman.

14. The next question is why did he do it?

I think he was pressured by GOP legislators that received leaked info from the FBI (maybe the same that were informing Guiliani of investigations and probable outcomes before being publicly announced?). Those legislators threatened to go public and smear the FBI with what they knew and accuse the FBI of holding back the info to help Hillary.

Pressured Comey to get ahead of the leaked disclosure about Weiner's computer hard drive and the slight, but highly unlikely, possibility more Clinton exchanged emails might be found.

Comey should have let the investigation do its thing. Chaffetz/Nunes/Gowdy/whoever would have then run to the media with the leaked info.

44. I'll file that one under no shit

And I don't see how it helps Trump of the Repukes any. They got their use out of Comey, then they tossed him aside when he was no longer useful, and now Comey is pissed (and probably regretting his earlier help). But none of it really matter snow. The Russia probe is bigger than Comey and if anything this only throws cold water on Chump's claim that the whole thing is a witch hunt organized by disgruntled Democrats.

But as for Comey, he can go to hell. He can repent and be as anti-Trump for the rest of his life and it won't make up for what he did. In a way it's kind of poetic justice that Trump ruined his career. Lie down with fleas, get bit. You'd think a man who dedicated his life to fighting crime would know that, but hey, we all have to learn sometime.

Comey's wildly improper October letter sank Hillary's poll numbers enough (and depressed Dem turnout, while encouraging the GOP)) for Trump to win some swing states and the electoral college.
