    Default FBI Director calls out the liar in chief on another one of his lies

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/02/13/u...und-check.html

    WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. director, Christopher A. Wray, said on Tuesday that the bureau delivered final results in January of its background investigation into Rob Porter, the staff secretary who resigned in disgrace amid spousal abuse allegations. But the White House allowed Mr. Porter to continue serving in his post until the accusations surfaced publicly in press reports last week.In testimony on Capitol Hill, Mr. Wray upended the White House’s timeline of the events that led to Mr. Porter’s departure, contradicting the contention of top officials that his background investigation was “ongoing” at the time of his resignation.
    So the White House account of the Porter firing was yet another lie.

    Why should we be surprised. The liar in chief has been lying up a storm almost daily since entering office and proffering the absurd lie that his inauguration crowd was bigger than Obama's.

    That was a clear signal that this was going to be one of the most dishonest administrations in history and it has sure lived up to that every day since.

    Is there any point where cons will tire of getting lied to so often?

    The lying coming from the top has set such an example that all WH officials are now ok lying about anything, all the time.

    Negative, the level of Obama's lying does not even approach the bar set by the maniac.

    ?
    Who could possibly care?

    So sorry to disappoint you, but there is no conflict between what the WH said and what Wray said.


    Wray said that the final reports were submitted in January. That is CORRECT, but they did NOT go to the Trump top echelon at the WH. They were still in the White House Personnel Security Office, which is staffed by career officials - not Trump people - and those career officials were STILL investigating it when the press story broke.

    It was only when the press story broke that the Trump WH people learned the full extent of the allegations and proofs seen on TV. Within 40 minutes of that getting to General Kelly and the Trump staff, Porter resigned.

    Before you say that Kelly should have known, it is not his job to know everything about everyone. That is why they HAVE a WH Personnel Security Office, which - like the Secret Service - is a functioning office in the WH that has nothing to do with the administration itself, but rather just does a routine job for the administration. The SAME career folks in there did the same job for the Obama administration.


    So, it is NOT a case where the WH Chief of Staff KNEW this stuff months ago. It was EXACTLY as Gen. Kelly stated it and there is NO WAY for he or anyone else on the senior staff to know that which they are never told.

    This is one reason why I remain Anti Trump, even though he's done some things I agree with. It's things like this, combined with his demeanor and behavior on Twitter, that reinforces my belief.

    What you cannot do is refute it. No one can because that's EXACTLY the way the process works: All personnel must be cleared by the WHPSO before they can get final clearances.

    LOL that off.

    Sorry. You just have to EAT it.

    All WH personnel have to be cleared through the WHPSO and only then are they finally cleared. Trump people were NOT in that process, and the WHPSO was STILL investigating Porter when the news broke - Just as Kelly and the WH press office stated.

    Knew what? What he would know would be from Porter. No one else can legally TELL HIM - not the FBI, certainly, and the WHPSO is also not supposed to talk about people they have not yet cleared.

    You better look again at Chris Wrayís testimony. The WH is lying on this and you are buying it hook, line and sinker.
