FINALLY! Former FBI Director Comey calls New York Times Story on Trump Collusion “Nonsense”

If former FBI Director Comey could have told us half of what he finally revealed on Thursday, it would have saved the American people a lot of heartache and worry.

Apart from revealing that everything we’ve read about the possibility of Trump “crimes” over the last few months has been wrong, Comey revealed that some of the stories that were running in major news outlets were simply “NONSENSE.”

One of the worst purveyors of the nonsense was the New York Times who ran a story that ended up getting picked up and even more widely broadcast by MSNBC, CNN, and all of the other “fake news” outlets.

The Times story argued that “anonymous sources” had revealed to them that the FBI had extensive “electronic surveillance” proving that the Trump campaign had colluded with the Russians. However, as Comey admitted in Thursday’s hearings that the entire story was  a load of “nonsense.” It was so ridiculous that Comey had to go back to all of the FBI’s information and look over it again because he thought he must have been missing something. In the end, Comey realized that he hadn’t missed anything and the Times was just reporting a bunch of foolishness.


“It was not true. … The challenge, and I’m not picking on reporters, about writing stories about classified information is the people talking about it often don’t really know what’s going on, and those of us that actually know what’s going on are not talking about it,” Comey explained.

“And we don’t call the press to say, ‘hey, you got this thing wrong about this sensitive topic,’” he continued. “We just have to leave it there … nonsense. But I can’t go on explaining why it’s nonsense.”

In fact, the one thing we learned for sure from Comey’s day of testifying on Thursday was that MOST of the “anonymously” sourced stories that have come out over the last few months have been very, very wrong. Or as Comey put it – they’ve been “NONSENSE.” Will the media continue to defend their nonsense stories, or will they finally admit that recently, they’ve been the biggest manufacturers of “fake news?”
