Giuliani: Comey Must Know Something Very Serious

Via Mediaite:

Just three days after FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to lawmakers indicating that the investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s use of a private email server would essentially be reopened, Mr. Mayor aggressively speculated that Comey must be privy to serious information.

Giuliani made his remarks during a radio hit on The Joe Piscopo Show on AM 970 THE ANSWER Monday. Speaking to the show’s interim host Frank Morano, the Mayor said that electing Hillary Clinton would simply, “cripple our country” at this time, furthering that based on his relationship with the FBI Director, there must be more going on.

“I would say that — knowing Jim Comey, he worked for me for three years when I was United States attorney — he would not have done this unless there were very serious things that he knows,” Giuliani told Morano Monday.

In July, Comey announced that he would not be recommending charges to the Justice Department in the case, a decision that Giuliani slammed. He told Fox & Friends at the time, “I was very disappointed in [Comey],” continuing, “He contradicts himself at least three times.”

    James Comey wanting to run for a political position and will do anything to gain ‘credit’ when his ass get toss out of the FBI. He is a Edgar Hoover wannabe.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Those yellow teeth must be cum stain from Trump.

    • Steverino

      Perhaps Todd Starnes shared his favorite beverage with him.

  • PLAINTOM

    Memo to Ghouliani : Are you saying that Comey performed an illegal search ? Comey made his vague statement before the FBI had a Warrant.

  • Kelly Lape

    Taking the former Mayor at his word, if Comey does know something then Comey broke the law. He’ have to have invaded that laptop without an appropriate warrant. If Guiliani knows that Comey knows something that makes Guiliani an accessory. Can we get a perp walk please?

  • Steverino

    Hillary essentially told Comey on Friday to put up or shut up. Obviously she’s not worried about what they have, or may find in this investigation. Ghouliani is just a hack.

    • Johnny Wyeknot

      Could be a bluff on her part knowing he didn’t even have the legal authority to view the e-mails when he sent his letter. But really, I can’t think there is anything too surprising given the scrutiny she has undergone her entire adult life.

      • Steverino

        Exactly. I know of no Republican president or candidate for president in modern history from Nixon to the present who could come out of such intense investigations and witch-hunts unscathed.

        • Stephen Elliot Phillips

          witch-hunts are for republicans to use against democrats

          • 2patricius2

            And especially against the first woman Democratic presidential candidate.

      • Traxley Launderette

        That, or she KNOWS what kind of email she and Huma exchanged and has nothing to fear from their investigation.

        • Acronym Jim

          “Huma, do you think I should wear the blue pantsuit or the red one for the next rally?”

          “You wore the blue one during the last rally, let’s go red this time.”

          SMOKING GUN!!!! HILLARY’S A COMMIE!!!!!

          • Stephen Elliot Phillips

            More like “Huma, I understand your predicament. Bill couldnt keep his ‘dickament in his pants either. Let’s have lunch soon. Kisses Hills”

        • Cipher

          If Huma had a security clearance and Weiner did not but one of the (small number) of emails that went through the server with classified information turns up on the laptop he had custody of — Huma may end up in hot water? All speculative, of course…

          I think Clinton played this well. The chorus of voices, some Republican, echoing her statement is great.

          The media’s assumption that this takes up the entire last week is stupid. If we are all playing Guiliani-style hyperbole and speculation- I say another Trump bombshell is coming. More tax returns? Another audio/video tape? It will be Yuuuuge!!!

          • Traxley Launderette

            If that was the case, I think that both Hillary and Huma would have been smart enough to immediately delete any potentially suspect email, given the witch hunt she’s been through for the past couple of years.

            Given the fact that the FBI has been sitting on this for some time before Friday’s announcement, plus the incredible pressure on Comey to find something — anything — on Hillary says to me Comey finally said “fuck it” and threw it out there. He knows he’s finished no matter who wins the election. Wouldn’t surprise me if he’s got bankers boxes already stacked in his office and flight reservations to Bali.

          • Cipher

            Let’s hope. It’s pretty amazing that the FBI is as leaky as a rusted out colander. That we know this much in the face of that vague Comey letter is pretty amazing.

            Imagine if there were no sources leaking how much ‘nothing’ is _not_ there? Of course, Comey has leaked a defense that he felt a need because the existence of the laptop and its review is ongoing.

            No where is that N-word Trump tape? Bring it on!

    • crewman

      There is no meaningful way to “shut up” unfortunately. The bell has been rung.

      • Steverino

        Indeed, it isn’t the news, but the reaction to the news that counts.

  • Bilious corporate loser, and tinfoil hat shitbag say what?

      I don’t think Ohio is gonna go blue this time around.

      • Gustav2

        The Clinton campaign has twice been at our door, the ground game may make the difference with the polls in Ohio now even.

        Oh, every time a Trump surrogate talks about the early D vote is behind previous years in many states, there is a reason for that. Fewer polling places and hours.

        • JesterRedPanda

          I’ve gotten two GOTV type notices from the clinton campaign. One even was a door hanger that had the exact location of my early voting location.

          They’re bringing their A-game and it shows!

          • Gustav2

            The hubby told them yesterday we had already voted as he opened the door, the woman shook his hand and went on her merry way.

          • All I’m getting here are door hangers from anti-abortion groups. 🙁

        • TK
          • Steverino

            That would be sweet if Ohio would tip. Every other blue state on the map is either safe, or are among a couple still in play by only a few points.

          • Beagle

            My dream would tip AZ and GA blue as well.

          • B Snow

            I have to admit, I’ve seen about two Trump/Pence bumper stickers but also two Hillary/Kaine bumper stickers here in GA. So that’s good, I guess….but we haven’t taken our leaf-viewing drive up to North Georgia yet, In 2012 there were big signs in those rural areas that basically said “Vote Republican or we’re all gonna die!!!!!”

            Metro Atlanta always goes blue now, but there are still a lot of born-and-bred Southerners in the rest of the state, and unfortunately they’re not like Trae Crowder. So while GA turning blue would be an awesome denunciation of Trump and the GOP, I doubt it will happen this year.

          • DonnaLee

            I kind of want her to pick up AZ too, just for fun.

          • TK

            I do also because I want the Latino voice to be super strong in the southwest this election. I just didn’t want to be greedy 🙂

      • Steverino

        Florida seems to be waffling, and I have my doubts about Arizona. But if everything else is accurate, that still would be 294 Clinton and 231 Trump. Even if the remaining toss-up 13 electoral votes from this map all went to Trump, it still would be 294 Clinton and 244 Trump, a 50-vote gap with Hillary winning handily. A squeaker in this scenario would be if both NC (unlikely at this point) and Nevada tipped to Trump making the final count 273 Clinton and 265 Trump, but Hillary still wins.

        • TK

          Her safe states right now. I don’t see how she loses tbh

          Plus give her at least one (if not more) of the following…Nevada, North Carolina, Florida.

          • Steverino

            Yep. Same squeaker number, but she still wins.

          • safari

            Trump is aiming for the rust belt of Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania.

        • The Democrats made an error by declaring Florida unwinnable after Rubio jumped back into the Senate race and their last-minute push may be too little, too late. I must have hope, though.

    • Gustav2

      That’s why Trump’s last 10 day push has him scheduled in Colorado, New Mexico, Maine, Michigan and Wisconsin. His campaign knows he has to pick off some of the Blue States.

      • Minor point — Maine’s 2nd district is in play, its just one electoral vote. Hillary is well ahead in the entire state but Maine goes by congressional district (as does Nebraska) for electoral votes. If New Hampshire goes to Trump you get a 269 – 269 split including Maine’s 2nd, which is why Trump was in that district on Saturday I believe.

        • Gustav2

          He has to pick up more than just the Maine district and New Hampshire for the split. It is part of the fantastical scenario.

  • Todd

    Yes, Rudy …..Comey knew that Trump was About to lose HUGE

  • Rex

  • andrew

    Giuliani sure does want that Director of Homeland Security job, in a Trump Administration.

  • GayOldLady

    Part of the reason Comey wrote the letter to the Congressional Committee Chairs is Ghouliani. He has been on Comey’s back at Trump rallies and on TV interviews for months. I suspect that Rudy has been promised the AG job which would have Comey reporting to Rudy, again. Comey is behaving like a deer in the headlights, frozen in his fear. I believe Comey will resign by the end of the year. He’s finished.

    • John30013

      If Comey doesn’t voluntarily resign, I think Obama should “ask” him to do so.

    • SoCalGal20

      By the end of the year? I wouldn’t be surprised if he was gone by the end of the week.

    Yo Ghouliani, Comey has admitted they have not even looked at the emails.

    • Chucktech

      Oh, jesus, I suppose I’m supposed to be assuaged by facts??

    • I believe that a judge did not give permission for the emails to be examined until this weekend. Comey would end up in the pokey if he took a peek without a court order. The only possible damaging information to Hillary Clinton here could be that a large number emails related to national security or government business and connected to Hillary Clinton directly are found on Huma Abedin’s accounts or files for the first time — and not part of the thousands that were handed over by Hillary to the FBI. If a deliberate pattern of obstruction is found — than that could mean trouble for both individuals. It does not seem feasible, from what we know, that Hillary and Huma could have run a Cloak and Dagger operation to conceal highly classified information this way from the feds. What is most likely is that information pertaining to the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton’s personal finances, not specifically government related, is what this fuss is all about — and what was “wiped” or not turned over to the State Department — and why this server was set up in the first place. This is why the Clinton’s wanted to maintain such information privacy, which in hindsight, was a disaster waiting to happen.

      • CB

        Thank you. These days any reason seems like a relief!

      • canoebum

        I read a comment on another blog that it is possible the emails were automatically downloaded to the laptop from a cloud account when Ms. Abedin signed on. It is very likely all these emails have been previously reviewed by FBI. Little matter now that the damage has been done. The election is rigged alright, by the GOP Congress. It seems to me they are getting ready to start the impeachment hearing a little early.

      • Cipher

        If they were looking at the laptop for Weiner emails to random minors they could have read the content of one or more emails. To accomplish discovery in business litigation, we have programs that scan emails for duplicates. The reports that this will take so much time are bogus!

  • David

    No Rudy, it’s been established that he doesn’t. Go home.

  • Yeah — he knows something serious about Trump’s connections with Russia and Putin. But we’re not allowed to know about that.

  • Of course Comey knows somethign serious – that he (COmey) has violated the Hatch Act and as a consequence, must resign immediately.

  • Right, Rudy. Maybe Comey has seen your psychiatrist’s notes.

  • coram nobis

    “Where there’s smoke, there’s fire,” said the arsonist.

  • TexasBoy

    So, Rudy, explain please how Comey could have any idea of what was even in those emails prior to issuing the letter to Republican congressmen? He didn’t have a warrant, and thus no authorization to access them. Legal details do still matter in the US. If we start convicting people based upon WikiLeaks, we have really gotten lost as a nation. We should never allow illegally obtained info to be presented as evidence in court.

  • Franciscan

    He looks like he could cram a Hebrew National in there.

  • Richard

    So Rudy chose to replace all his top teeth with plastic looking chiclets and yet elected to keep his yellowed lower teeth and then to show off the colour contrast he just keeps opening his mouth as wide as possible ????

  • The_Wretched

    Or Republican Comey who has a personal beef against Clinton and has broken norms in the past to get at her has done the same again. One or the other.

    This is the same argument they used to force people into accepting the “War on Terror” started by GW Bush …… he had to have information WMDs that regular folks were not privy to …. but he did not … he, and his puppet master were just war profiteers who needed to start a war to get the money.

    And just like Comey, Giuliani is harping about “how BIG this must be”, while still remaining quite about what IT is. And don’t expect Comey to come forward until after the election.

    Because he’s got nothing. Or he would have released it. The repthugs have figured if they can’t discover a controversy, they’ll just make one up by insinuating Hillary did something. After all, that works just as good.

  • Piona O.

    I know this isn’t really germane to the issues but…has anybody else noticed that Rudy seems to have had his upper teeth capped and/or whitened…but his lower teeth are totally disgusting yellowed tombstones? Seriously Rudy, either get the lowers done too, or keep your fucking mouth shut.
