    AMEN! Great reporting! #MAGA

    maybe now the fbi will look into seth’s death

  • fred

    You all talk about LEAKING and Comet. He is completely within his rights to give out the memo’s. They are NOT classified, He wrote them, and he gave them to the special council. If he was in any way wrong, they would have slapped the cuffs on him right away. Oh, and he got them to appoint a special council while they had zero idea. He out smarted everyone. And Trump just keeps tweeting away his credibility and his standing to make a case for his innocence. Sorry folks,,,,,,,,,,,,

  • fred

    All Trumps little toddler games are gonna bite him in the ASS. Meuller is gonna find the truth and Trump can’t settle out of court like he always does.

  • fred

    Trump plays these stupid little cat and mouse games about maybe I will tell you if there are tapes in a short time from now, and You wont like what I tell you, but tune in next week for the results. Guess what people, he has no tapes. Guess what people, he wil NEVER testify under oath, not in a million years. He will say his lawyer wont let him, but 100% he wants to. He is a joke and an embarrassment.

  • fred

    Trump never once asked about RUSSIA and how to stop them from doing it again, Does that sound like a potus to you? I think he only cares about himself and all you Trumpets will discover it but to late. He is not going to help middle America, not going to bring jobs back to middle America. He is there to prop up his billionaire friends and build his own wealth. WTF is wrong with you people?

  • fred

    Never has anyone here on OAN, mentioned that RUSSIA HACKED AND ATTACKED the USA. Why is nobody speaking about that? You all think you’re patriots and the heart and soul of the country but really just a bunch of church mice when it comes to addressing the FACT that WE got attacked by RUSSIA!!!! WTF!!!

  • Dennis Thibodeau

    Only NOTES was Trumps?
    We need a GRAND JURY to investigate ALL

  • Robert Craig

    LET’S HOPE HE IS INDICTED AND GIVES UP ALL THE CLINTON TRASH AND CROOKS.

  • Tonya Parnell

    OANN, LOVE YOUR SHOW

  • Matt

    does anyone think
    that Comey should be allowed in ANY
    high level public office again?
    after admitting he is persuaded easily by others?
    We need a person of conviction and strength to run that department
    Lynch ISN”T his boss but he does what she says?
    Trump is his Boss and he finds jumps to conclusion of he
    thinks he meant? by his statement?
    Obviously this guy isn’t qualified to run a Hot Dog stand
    let alone the FBI

    • fred

      Way to mangle the truth. your pathetic.

  • fred

    tin foil hats for everyone!!

    Law professor Alan Dershowitz is a flaming Liberal, but he finally did say something I can agree with today. He stated that Trump acted within his Constitutional Authority as President with regard to Comey, and could easily have LEGALLY ordered the former Director to stop the investigation into Flynn or Russia IF HE WANTED TO.

    • Tonya Parnell

      When the Dem o rats start to cry, we can break out our little violins

  • y. Iamu

    President Trump would have had him to dinner to play him and let Comey show his hand. The President told Comey he needed loyalty and Comey didn’t understand the President already knew he was a leaker. Leaking is not loyalty and neither is toning down an investigation for political reasons but he did both.
    Your fired!

  • Ccdelkin

    Comey made a huge blunder yesterday when he admitted that he deliberately leaked the memo, so that a special counsel would be called. He now has undermined Meuller’s investigation as to being nothing more than a deliberate act of a political setup against our Prsident.

  • Fight4theRight

    “I woke up in the middle of the night … because it didn’t dawn on me originally that there might be corroboration for our conversation,” and then you leaked… it to the press. So how do you explain, Mr. Leaker-in-Chief, that exact wording from your memo were published by NYT few days before you “leaked”?

    • grandmother5

      I had to smile when Comey said “he woke up in the middle of the night that there might be corroboration for our conversation, like a tape” So he called his BFF and told him to leak it to the media. I thought at first he was a good guy caught in the middle. Not so sure of that now. One thing he gave up Lynch about the email situation. That explains Lynch and Bill Clinton meeting on the plane.

  • Chris C.

    This guy by any standard should never be allowed to hold any law enforcement position ever again.

  • CalebBrewster

    sooooo, the federal law enforcement community conspired with the DNC to ruin trump’s candidacy while helping Clinton’s!?

    SHOCKED I SAY!

  • Renee Davis

    very incompetent I’d say

  • fred

    This story from OAN is a hatchet piece. I can make a better one with Trumps video past.

    • Just Saying

      I doubt your capable of doing anything without your propaganda machine

    • jas

      Maybe you could considering the alt left media has been creating fiction for years. But hey, no one believes you left wing pieces of trash anymore anyways.

    • Robert Craig

      EAT SOME DUNG AND DRINK SOME MORE KOOL-AID.

  • fred

    Meuller investigation is chugging along and will answer all the questions.. Now he has a criminal investigation (Trump) to work on as well. remember, Comey brought all his notes to him before he went to congress. You can’t stop whats coming.

    • Phil M. Kelley

      You delusional libs just cannot let it go, can you? Even after Mueller finds nothing, you will still not believe him.

      • FreedomFighter

        Liberalism is a mental disease. fred has a severe case of it.

    • DeplorableMe

      You need to visit a proctologist …. to have your head removed from your rear

  • Hoang_oanh

    NYT posted Comey leaking meno 1 day before President Trump Twitter. Comey lied under oath .

    • fred

      Wrong. Trump and OAN got it completely wrong. Check the time line. it’s easy to do.

      • Roy Beane

        Woe to those who say that good is bad and bad is good,
        Those who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness,
        Those who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
        Woe to those wise in their own eyes
        And discreet in their own sight!
        (Isaiah 5:20, 21)

        • David Picard

          True, Roy. The problem is people determining if the mote is in their OWN eye or just the eyes of others. Woe to those who believe the latter and find fault in others but not in themselves.

          • Roy Beane

            And that sword cuts both ways, my friend.

        • fred

          Look in the mirror.

          • Roy Beane

            Don’t worry. I SEE YOU there.

          • fred

            No worries bible thumper, my eyes are wide open. I see Trump for fraud he is.

          • Roy Beane

            You are entitled to your own opinion. But, time will tell.

          • fred

            true

      • Tango Uniform

        So, Comey and Fred got it right and the rest of America can’t do simple math?

  • Roy Beane

    Comey is the FIRST of the Deep State Leakers to be publicly EXPOSED, and out of his own mouth, too. Very likely there are a lot MORE to root out.

    • All American

      Maybe charges will be filed and he will seek immunity and give up Lynch, Podesta and Clinton!

      • Roy Beane

        You’ve made an excellent point, there. Will be interesting to see if the Hillary email / server investigation (NOT a MATTER) is reopened soon, AND whether anyone in the DOJ will have the balls to go after Lynch, Podesta, and yes, their precious OBAMA. Who undoubtedly was most likely not only aware of what Lynch was doing, but probably also AUTHORIZED it. ALSO, let us not forget about Susan Rice, SHE is up to her eyebrows in this CESSPOOL of Lying, Spying and Violation of the Rights of American Citizens in their UNMASKING Scandal.

        • All American

          President Trump has those balls and they are made of American steel🇺🇸

    • David Picard

      Not even close, Roy. This is a sophisticated, decades-long intel and prosecutor. If you think he would be saying something that would be criminal, you’re really out in the field across the river.

      • Roy Beane

        Will be interesting to see what the special prosecutor has to say about all of this, but, then again, he and Comey are very close friends of many years, so it is unlikely anything will ever happen to Comey at his hands…..Mueller may decide its more interesting to keep chasing a fantasy instead.

      • All American

        Everyone has a price

  • 1BigNasty

    Put this clown into jail, where he belongs.

  • Fight4theRight

    this guy is pathetic. I wouldn’t let him manage my henhouse.

  • Jimbob

    Comey Fife, the cop without a gun.

    • Phil M. Kelley

      Ease off on Barney, Dude! Barney Fife had not a single mean bone in his body.

      • 808Americans

        And only one round.

      • Roy Beane

        At least poor old Barney wasn’t a liar and a criminal.

      • CalebBrewster

        True, but he was still an incompetent nincompoop.

      • James

        and he DID have one bullet.

    • Renee Davis

      lol
