Zeldin Says No Special Prosecutor Needed After FBI Director Fired

May 16, 2017 2:11 PM

In the wake of the firing of FBI Director James Comey by President Donald J. Trump this week, U.S. Representative Lee Zeldin said that he does not support the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate the possibility of links between the president’s campaign staff and the Russian government.

Mr. Zeldin said that he has spoken with several high-ranking officials about the investigation thus far, including Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and has said that based on the information they’ve given him, he does not believe the appointment of an independent special prosecutor is warranted.

He also implied that he did not think the president was unwarranted in dismissing Mr. Comey.

“James Comey was in an incredibly challenging situation last year, with so many factors and enormous pressures coming down to bear on him and his agency from the highest levels and with the highest stakes,” Mr. Zeldin said. “Ultimately, President Trump’s decision does, in fact, present the [FBI] with a fresh start and the type of new beginning that has enormous potential to restore any broken trust wherever it may exist.

“As for calls for a special prosecutor,” Mr. Zeldin added, in a message shared by his communications staff, “based on my last briefing with several federal intel and law enforcement agency heads, including CIA, FBI, NSA, and Director of National Intelligence, I am not calling for a special prosecutor.”

Investigations of Mr. Trump’s campaign connections with Russian businesses and government officials is being led in separate efforts with somewhat different focuses by the FBI and by multiple congressional committees, most notably the House Intelligence Committee—whose chairman, Republican Congressman Devin Nunes, recused himself after being accused of having discussed the committee’s findings with Mr. Trump’s staff.

Some Democratic members of Congress and other critics have said that President Trump’s firing of the FBI director appears to have been motivated expressly by the desire to influence the investigation into his campaign and have said there should be an independent investigator appointed to handle the inquiries to ensure that there is not undue political influence.

Some, including some Democrats, have said that an independent prosecutor might hinder the FBI and would not necessarily stay above the fray of politics anyway—nodding to the politically steered crusade of the most famous holder of such a post: Kenneth Starr.

Public polls nationwide have shown steadily growing support for the idea of an independent investigator taking over the inquiry.

An investigation in search of a crime...
May 16, 17 12:02 PM appended by Mr. Snerdley
It's nothing more than a political witch hunt resulting from an revolving story line of why Hillary lost the election. It couldn't have been because she was a crappy candidate, surely, it had to be some other nefarious reason. There is NO evidence of ANY Trump wrong doing.
By Mr. Snerdley (282), Southampton on May 16, 17 12:02 PM
you claim that there is no evidence of any wrong doing is a guess. I guess we'll have to check back after the facts are revealed.

And to all of you on the left who are salivating over the coming impeachment of Trump and his removal from office: Be careful what you wish for. Next up is President Pence, a person who believes that corporations and the wealthy should be able to rape, pillage and plunder without consequence. About the only government regulation he does believe in is to shove his religious views down everyone else's throats. It will be like having the American version of the Taliban in the White House.

1. Communication with foreign official is commonplace for campaigns according to Officials. Whether Flynn "had" to be fired is a matter of opinion. 2. Define Medaling? Russia had no involvement in votes cast. 3. See item 1. Flynn was ultimately fired not for his communication with Russian officials, but for misleading US officials. 4. Details are developing, but hearsay at the current time. 5. Trump said. “And, in fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, ‘You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made-up story. It’s an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won."

2. To determine if president trump or any of his team members (or anyone really) were in conversation with agents of a foreign power and discussed american foreign policy and/or any efforts to disrupt the 2016 presidential election.

Robert Mueller's memos were held up in court as bona fide evidence.

If there's nothing to be afraid of, why block releasing Comey's notes? If there's nothing to be afraid of, why not release the 1040s?

Just because Comey was a dope about how he handled controversial issues, doesn't mean his notes were not meticulous.

Answer, it was leaked to them... a crime. But no, the "real story" is "They lied about it" but yet there is no substantiation to any report - just unnamed sources.

Bull crap. With no shortage of embassy security funding, you put the money where it is most needed. Any deficiencies in embassy security fall squarely in the lap of the Hillary Clinton State Department. The State Department had a GOP proposed budget of around $1.934 billion for the State Department’s Worldwide Security Protection program.

Politics aside if that is possible, budget cuts were NOT the reason why three Americans died in Benghazi. They died because of on-the-ground decisions related to what we now know to be inadequate security - and decisions made by State Department leadership to NOT consider improvements to inadequate security to which there was no nexus to funding. Those decisions boiled down to deciding inadequate security was not a priority.

Qatamesh is one of an estimated 500 Palestinians jailed by Israel without charges or trial.

By Patrick Strickland

An Israeli military court judge still has to approve the three-month administrative detention order in the coming days. Qatamesh has spent more than 13 years in jail, spread out through several different stints. First arrested in the 1970s, he was jailed for more than four years for alleged involvement in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP), a left-wing political party - a secular Palestinian Marxist–Leninist and revolutionary socialist organization.

This is where the liberal news media is at it's toxic worst. In that they WON'T report what is happening in the world.

Namely, that the WORLD is happy that the Barrack Obama experiment of appeasment/leadership from behind, has come to an end.

Literally, the world is relieved America is back to being America. And that Barrack Obama's "transformation of America" has been reversed.

Arnold, Google my friend, it's not classified information and to most who are paying attention, it's common knowledge - the count is somewhere around 10 - at least - and that's considering a corrupt media that is incapable of doing its job when a Democrat is in office.
