Former FBI Director James Comey may have committed perjury. A major announcement was just released, and Comey isn’t anywhere close to being off the hook.
Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) revealed during a hearing that he’s found “inconsistencies” in Comey’s remarks about the witch-hunt against President Trump. “We would assess it,” said Inspector General Mike Horowitz in response.
“I’m finding just a number of irregularities,” continued Meadows. He specifically brought up how, on one hand, Comey claimed that he did not open an obstruction investigation, but then he leaked memos to the press to trigger one anyway.
Meadows noted that “two of those can’t be true,” therefore, he said, “We’ll be referring those inconsistencies to you today, Mr. Horowitz.” It appears that Comey may have perjured himself — meaning this matter is far from over.
With Inspector General Horowitz committed to investigation Meadows’ concerns — and the probe continuing into the origins of the anti-Trump witch-hunt — there’s no telling where this could all end up.
One thing’s for certain: Comey, Clapper, McCabe, and anyone else who may have been involved in using government power to improperly spy on the Trump campaign and lie “collusion” are far from safe.
