James Comey: It ‘Wasn’t Necessary’ to Inform Trump that DNC, Hillary Campaign Financed Dossier

Former FBI Director James Comey stated it “wasn’t necessary” to inform President Donald Trump that the infamous dossier had been paid by Trump’s primary political opponents, namely Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

In an exclusive interview with ABC News’ chief anchor George Stephanopoulos ahead of the release of his memoir on Tuesday, Comey described numerous conversation he had with Trump about the contents of the dossier.

Yet, Comey repeatedly failed to tell Trump that the dossier was produced by the controversial Fusion GPS political opposition research outfit and funded by the DNC and Clinton’s campaign.

Comey first briefed Trump about the dossier claims at a pre-inauguration intelligence briefing at Trump tower.  Stephanopoulos asked Comey whether he informed Trump about the dossier’s political origins and whether Trump had a “right” to know.

Here is a transcript of that portion of the interview:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Did you tell him that the Steele Dossier had been financed by his political opponents?

JAMES COMEY: No. I didn’t– I didn’t think I used the term “Steele Dossier,” I just talked about additional material.

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Did he– but did he have a right to know that?

JAMES COMEY: That it’d been financed by his political opponents? I don’t know the answer to that. I– it wasn’t necessary for my goal, which was to alert him that we had this information. Again, I was clear on whether it’s true or not, it’s important that you know, both because of the counterintelligence reason and so you know that this maybe going to hit the media.

Earlier in the interview, Comey admits that he knew about the dossier’s questionable funding when he was first told about the document’s charges the summer before the election:

GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: A– and at the time, did you know it had been financed at the beginning from President Trump’s– by President Trump’s political opponents?

JAMES COMEY: Yes, I– I was told at some point that it was– the effort had originally been financed by a Republican source to develop– material– opposition research on Donald Trump. Then after the Republican nominating process ended, the effort was taken up and funded by a Democratic aligned group trying to get opposition research on Trump. I never knew which– who the groups were, but I knew it started with Republicans paying for it and then Democrats were paying for it.

Comey describes numerous other talks with Trump about the dossier contents, including a Jan. 11 phone call; a one-on-one White House dinner on Jan. 27; and two subsequent phone calls from Trump.

At the dinner, Comey pushed back against Trump’s suggestion of probing the claim inside the dossier that he had Russian prostitutes perform a “golden shower” romp in the presidential suite at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Moscow in 2013.  This while Comey was aware – but still kept to himself – that the document was funded by Trump’s main political opponents.

Comey relates in his book that Trump brought up the topic of the dossier: “He may want me to investigate it to prove that it didn’t happen. And then he says something that distracted me because he said, you know, ‘If there’s even a 1 percent chance my wife thinks that’s true, that’s terrible.’”

“‘And I remember thinking, ‘How could your wife think there’s a 1 percent chance you were with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow?’ I’m a flawed human being, but there is literally zero chance that my wife would think that was true. So, what kind of marriage to what kind of man does your wife think [that] there’s only a 99 percent chance you didn’t do that?”

Comey quoted Trump ask saying, “I may order you to investigate that.”

Comey, however, writes that he urged the president to approach the possibility of an investigation with caution.

“I said, ‘Sir, that’s up to you. But you’d want to be careful about that, because it might create a narrative that we’re investigating you personally, and second, it’s very difficult to prove something didn’t happen,’” Comey said.

Comey had still other chances to inform Trump about the highly questionable origins of the dossier.

In March, Comey writes that Trump called him up to complain that the Russia investigation was a “cloud” impeding his ability to govern, drawing attention again to the golden showers allegation.

“For about the fourth time, he argued that the golden showers thing wasn’t true, asking yet again, ‘Can you imagine me, hookers?’ ” Comey writes of the call. “In an apparent play for my sympathy, he added that he has a beautiful wife and the whole thing has been very painful for her. He asked what we could do to ‘lift the cloud.’ ”

A Washington Post characterization of Comey’s memoir reported:

Comey recalls telling the president the FBI was investigating it as quickly as possible, and that he had told Congress that Trump was not personally under investigation, to which the president repeatedly told him, “We need to get that fact out.”

Two weeks later, on April 11, Trump called Comey again to check on his request to “get out” that he is not under investigation, Comey writes.

“He seemed irritated with me,” Comey recalls.

“I have been very loyal to you, very loyal. We had that thing, you know,” Trump told him, according to the book, apparently referring to the loyalty dinner.

Besides knowledge of the dossier’s financing, a four-page House Intelligence Committee memo alleging abuse of surveillance authority documented that after dossier author Christopher Steele was terminated as an FBI source a “source validation report conducted by an independent unit within FBI assessed Steele’s reporting as only minimally corroborated.”

Still, Comey saw fit not only to officially brief Trump on the matter, but also to cite the questionable document inside a FISA court application on October 21, 2016 to conduct surveillance on Carter Page, who briefly served as a volunteer campaign foreign policy adviser.  Comey signed three more FISA applications also citing the dossier.

The GOP memo documents how the FISA applications did not mention the financing from Clinton’s campaign or the DNC, and the documents also left out the role of Fusion GPS in producing the dossier.


Poster Comment:

Un-believable admission!! Just...wow.

FIB Honcho Comey KNEW of the Fake Dossier, but just didn't feel it was relevant...to stopping the Fake Witch Hunt. Just because.

So now that the ex-FBI director concedes Hitlery tried to frame President Trump...and Comey, McCabe, and the rest of the Deep State jackals enabled The Big Lie, will the heads of ANY of the collaborators of this Coup roll? (The LEAST of all, Hitlery??) YOO-HOO...Please pick up the "I'm-Not-A-Cadavor" phone, Jeff Sessions. Naah, never mind. Trump needs to fire his collusive azz and unleash a REAL Attorney General upon the participants of this Dem Coup. (1 image)

“‘And I remember thinking, ‘How could your wife think there’s a 1 percent chance you were with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow?’

YOU DO!

You said, “I honestly never thought these words would come out of my mouth, but I don't know whether the current president of the United States was with prostitutes peeing on each other in Moscow in 2013,” he said. “It's possible, but I don't know.”

Asshole.

That it’d been financed by his political opponents? I don’t know the answer to that.

I do. Yes. It goes to the credibility of the document. What a jerk.

Yup.

Comey when pressed regarding the "peeing" caper: "It's possible, but I don't know.”

WHIFF.

And "isn't it possible" but "unknown" that James Comey is a "pedo"?

These people have no honor. Comey is 6-8 worth of pure weasel.

And what about this interview with George Stephanopoulos? How does every one forget the guy worked FOR the Clintons. Gee, no conflict there, eh?

Which was how they illegally got a wire tap on a competitor and used to harm his reputation. Trump should sue them all and I believe GPS is being sued!

What is even crazier is what they did to Trump's Lawyer who apparently is a lawyer for many conservative people. They are looking for dirt illegally on those that oppose the Regressives. This is why we have the constitution! To keep the powers that be from running over those that dare go against them.

Jerk. Liar. And narcissistic sociopath.

This guy thinks he can lie and play all the games he wants and never go to jail. Yup, just like Hitlery and the rest of the traitors. Meanwhile ABC's Stephanopoulos' questions and reaction were pathetic. What scripted BS.

Yes, the FISA apps were approved with a simple wink, without ANY observing any protocol at all. A total sham. That led to the illegal wire taps beside the smearing, libel and slander.

Trump should sue AND prosecute (oh wait -- that's Jeff ("FIX-IT-FOR-HILLARY") Sessions at AG.He need to fill out an orange jumper himself.

What is even crazier is what they did to Trump's Lawyer who apparently is a lawyer for many conservative people. They are looking for dirt illegally on those that oppose the Regressives. This is why we have the constitution! To keep the powers that be from running over those that dare go against them.

Yup, the Dems-Coup Cabal are still using illegally obtained reasons and warrants to harass Trump's lawyers. This nonsense won't stop until Trump goes Nuclear.

Comey is a snowflake shitbag.

This is what happens when politicians appoint cops. Lots of police chiefs are snowflake shitbags, too.

He's right and so is the Clinton Crime Family.
They can do anything they want and never be held to account. Observation tells us that.

The Normal-American Community will never get a turn at bat.
