FBI Colluded with James Comey after Trump Fired Him

Before giving testimony to Congress, the FBI colluded with Comey and directed him to coordinate his testimony with the Mueller Investigation.

Why did James Comey receive guidance about his testimony from FBI officials? Why did he work with the Mueller investigation? It looks like the FBI colluded with Comey for its own reason. Comey wasn’t only covering for himself but also for a cabal within the FBI and involved in the Mueller investigation.

This has now been exposed by Judicial Watch who got incriminating emails through a FOIA request.

CNS News reports, “Judicial Watch: Emails Show FBI Advised Comey to Consult With Mueller Before Senate Testimony.

Emails obtained by Judicial Watch through the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) show that James Comey, even though he had been fired from his FBI director position by President Trump on May 9, 2017, was still communicating and receiving guidance from top FBI officials about his pending June 8 testimony before Congress, advice that included him consulting with Special Counsel Robert Mueller before speaking to Congress.

Comey, when he was still the FBI director, leaked memos to the New York Times that he believed would trigger the appointment of a special counsel to investigate the president. That tactic worked, as former FBI Director and Comey-friend Robert Mueller was appointed special counsel on May 17, 2017.

The emails obtained by Judicial Watch from the Department of Justice and FBI show that Comey “was advised by FBI officials in May 2017 to consult with Special Counsel Robert Mueller prior to testifying before any congressional committees regarding Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and his firing as FBI director,” said the watchdog group in a statement.

“The documents obtained by Judicial Watch are the first to reveal that high-ranking FBI officials helped Comey coordinate his testimony with Mueller,” reads the statement.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton added, “These documents show that James Comey, who was fired by the president, nevertheless had easy, friendly access to the FBI as he prepped his infamous anti-Trump testimony to the Senate. This collusion led to Comey’s attacking President Trump and misusing FBI records as part of a vendetta against the president.”
