OAN Newsroom

President Trump denounces the mainstream media’s coverage of an exchange between him and former FBI Director James Comey.

On Sunday, the president said he never asked Comey to stop investigating former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

The president also said the media was basing their reports off of an alleged lie made by the former FBI director.

He later re-tweeted a post on new developments made in the Russian election meddling probe with a special investigator being dismissed after sending anti-Trump texts.

  • Sam Jacinto

    I would believe almost anyone before Trump. He is a liar.

  • nfcapitalist

    Mainstream Media aka the Liberal News is nothing more than the agitation propaganda management that is steering the Federal government an soft headed life 50% of the Bell Curve.

    What possible other function is there for what was once the source of News delivered twice a day to an arms race to control conflict and the +/- or ones and zeros messages with no in between and this isn’t News… it is Orwellian mind control!

  • brandehhh

    Is Trump going to go after everyone who doesn’t praise him?
    The FBI needs to straighten their crap up. No one is above the law.

  • Roy Beane

    Trump’s mistake with Comey was not firing his azz on day ONE right out of the box. Comey’s conduct in the Hillary email “matter” should have been enough for Trump to see that this Lying Clown had to go asap.

  • PatrickJ

    Well, the simplicity of the whole thing is that there is a war going on out there. Trump is killing them. They can’t find anywhere to hide. Desperate people do desperate things. OANN and Newsmax are simply taking over the job of delivering the news to America.

    If nothing else, It’s fun to watch. I wouldn’t want to be a Liberal right now.

    • Sam Jacinto

      Trump propaganda organs like Fox, OAN, Newsmax, and Breitbart don’t deliver news. They stir fear and racism amongst the feeble minded.

  • MJABRTDK

    Obama, Lynch, Holder, Comey, and the Clintons were all in on this “didn’t rise the the level of criminal intent” what a crock. They were all welling to kiss Hillary’s booty because they thought she was going to be the next POTUS … they’re all corrupt to the bone.

  • TIME TO CLOSE DOWN GOVERNMENT.

    It is no longer serving the best interests of the people.

  • CO

    Take notice some of the largest government hacking events happened under this FBI Agent Strzok’s watch also ? Including “Vault 7” toolkit that was lost. Even you if go back to Robert Hanssen of the FBI bad things can happen for decades without notice.

    • nfcapitalist

      Reality Winners… what happened to her and what happened to the 7 th floor of the Hoover Building… do we have an OIG and is he allowed to talk to Charles McCullough?

  • …remain calm and return fire

    Can you imagine Romney or McCain punching back at the liars this hard? I can’t either. Romney and McCain would just hand the keys over to their liberal friends.

  • ray

    Holder and Comey tweet that the FBI is ‘independent’ and that is not true (a lie). The FBI must adhere to the laws that Congress enact and judiciary judgments. Holder and Comey are sadly mistaken .. when the Supreme Court rules – the FBI MUST follow.

    Example: Judicial Watch went to court with a FOIA request and the judge granted it … turn over all documents related to the meeting of Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch on the plane tarmac during the Hillary email almost-investigation. The FBI responded “There are none.” … Judicial Watch went to court again and re-opened the FOIA request and the Judge again granted the request and the Judge demanded any documents be turned over … low and behold 30 pages (with some redactions) were turned over and the main subject of the FBI internal communications was the – whistleblower! (“.. we need to find this guy.”) and Phoenix FBI was contacted (“in attempt to stem any further damage.”) and the FBI even went so far as to suggest non-disclosure agreements be signed to contain damage. The FBI was forced to comply by the Judicial branch.

    Is the FBI ‘independent’ ? there are only three independent braches of the U.S. government (Judicial, Congress, Executive) and even they are not fully independent from each other.

    That the FBI can operate as an independent branch of the U.S. government under Comey and Holder … is what has causes so much of this mess. Keep in mind, one of the reason Comey was dismissed – was that the FBI does not have the power of prosecution and Comey’s ‘get out of jail’ free card that he issued to Hillary – usurped the authority of the DOJ … the FBI was to investigate and report to the DOJ and the DOJ only – had the authority to decided if charges should be brought.

    So Comey was replaced by the authority of the Executive branch (the President of the United States) .. take THAT to the Supreme Court and see who wins!!!!

  • Lawmadsen

    Get your popcorn ready folks we are in for a real treat this week! Jeff Sessions has been quietly investigating corruption in the FBI, CIA and previous white house for the past year and the OIG report is being released this week. Flynn is not a chump, he is a master spook and when the community organizer tried to set him up as the fall guy and catalyst for Trump’s impeachment Flynn turned the tables and set a massive trap to catch leakers and criminally corrupt agents (Comey, Holder, Yates, Strzok etc…). To do this Flynn had to use himself as bait and now the hook is firmly set, the OIG report will be followed by over a dozen indictments and you are going to see a scandal dragged out into the light that will make Watergate look like a parking infraction (this will include Bill Clintons tarmack meeting with Loretta Lynch). Trump let the MSM rejoice in Flynn’s plea all weekend knowing it will make their tears all the more delicious after the bomb he’s about to drop though you can already see the swamp circling the wagons and throwing everything they can as a last ditch effort to stop their demise (holders/yates/comeys comments about the integrity of the FBI, even billy bush’s stupid article is an attempt to protect his now endangered rino family).

    • facevalue

      I would love for this to take place… Feeling all along that Trump is just playing the media for fools and accumulating a dossier on them and the swamp dwellers… Waiting to pounce..!!

    • PatrickJ

      A good scenario if it indeed happens the way you have described it. Let’s hope.

    • PatrickJ

      Wouldn’t it be great if Jeff Sessions turned out to be the hesitant Lion who finally roared?

    • Sam Jacinto

      It’s quite funny that Sessions should investigate corruption.

  • Brad

    Mueller will be stepping up his investigative team of Killary supporters to go after President Trump for make-believe crimes. I’m surprised they haven’t come out and accused him of being a Russian spy. They’ve tried everything else.
    Time for mueller and gang to go!!!

  • they’re gonna FINALLY lock career criminal Comey up! YAY!

  • HML

    If MSM and the deep state can’t control the narrative and the message, they will cause chaos and confusion so people won’t know who or what to believe.

    • Sam Jacinto

      Fox has been doing that for 20 years.

      • HML

        Exactly, Fox reports the truth and the MSM sows confusion…

  • CDG

    ABC actually preempted “the View” on Friday to have Brian Ross go on air live to give a factually inaccurate report directly implying the President was guilty of “Russian collusion”. You guys know what story I’m taking about. It took them about 5-6 hours to issue a correction. The Dow dropped 350 points immediately afterward the report. ABC suspended the oxygen thief but didn’t fire him. (Big Suprise) Seriously, when can someone be sued for slander and held liable for outright lies? This guy is a know Trump hater and has made other “reporting errors” in the past.

    • Dakota

      Makes you wonder Chris Kyle was sued my ex MN governor Jesse and won. It’s time someone should be able to make fake news shut the he’ll up already

      • CDG

        I believe that would be a different situation as Kyle was not considered a reporter but a private citizen when he wrote his book and made up stories about Jesse “The Body”. Jesse was also spoke of as a private citizen in the book and not governor. The laws concerning slander and liable of a public figure or celebrity favor reporters. It’s why we rarely hear of Hollywood types suing for crazy National Enquirer stories.

    • KMA

      I’m surprised that there hasn’t been a class action suit filed?
      It will take a little while to find out how much I and many other people have actually lost due to his comments!!!

      Does anyone know of a lawsuit that has been filed?

      • CDG

        Well, the Dow did recover and finished at about 45 points down, or so I read. Ultimately, it would be impossible to prove culpability in a class action lawsuit. Would be nice if someone who is wealthy (and can afford a legal fight that would end in failure) would sue Brian Ross and ABC. This would force them to spend money defending a terrible reporter and maybe shows other media outlets that while the President, as a public figure, may not be able to sue the public sure can.

  • PatrickJ

    Once again, you see here the President upstaging the worthless media and taking the air from their most recent balloon.

  • iownlsu

    • PatrickJ

      Very creative, iownlsu. I got a good visual from that.

  • Tim maher

    Mueller is acting just like a special prosecutor. His investigation turned up nothing amiss that he could prosecute President Trump for so now he is leveling charges for the purpose of blackmail to get someone to make false allegations so it looks like he was doing his job and the democrats didn’t cause millions of dollars to be spent on bogus allegations. Hopefully this will all come to light and Mueller will be the one who ends up in jail.

    • Libby Clark

      Just curious, how much has been spent so far? I agree it’s in the millions, but has a “ball park” figure even been mentioned yet?

      • mertsj

    • Bama Bill

      In some cases a firing squad is the only logical solution. In prison, next “D” president pardons. Leave, they just join the enemies and hurt use more.

  • nfcapitalist

    How is it that the FBI will prosecute a retired three star General for “lying to the FBI” when what he allegedly lied about wasn’t illegal… and after giving a pass to the Clinton Crime Family for team tagging Uranium One and exposing Top Secret and Special Access security information that is illegal and may well have caused agents and their sources to lose their lives???

          Think Comey/Clapper/Obama

    • Sam McGowan

      “Lying to the FBI” is a charge Federal agents use when they have no case. General Flynn had already admitted that he may not have told the exact truth to the agents (who had no business interviewing him in the first place.)

    • Scott

      You see the FBI forgot to bring a tape recorder when they interview Hillary for they did not record her she is lawyer. She lied but NO recording of it. Its very convenient for the Democrats to get off and get the Propaganda value at time saying she was interviewed and Media can say its ok they found nothing for you know the media lies with fake news for they are Democratic. Hillary said she was NOT under investigation but she is Democrat and lying is natural. If you want good Democrats come to Calif they are great at it. Hillary lied fact but NO charges for that reality she is Democrat elite and part of the Deep state. =

      • ray

        >You see the FBI forgot to bring a tape recorder when they interview Hillary
        They didn’t forget.. they agreed that Hillary was innocent before they talked to anybody. Comey .. told them she was innocent.. so they really had no cause to tape her interview (taping is standard procedure) as their minds were made up by Comey before the investigation even began, Obstruction of justice, it is, it is. If you remember .. one of the reasons Comey was fired was that he publically announced she was extremely careless and there was no intent .. on the other foot .. Comey took Trumps words out of context and claimed there was intent to obstruct .. a leaked (a felony) to force a special prosecutor. A Flip flop. You see .. the cabal thinks the American people are stupid .. morons… so get ready to marh on Congress if they continue to bend laws and ignore the will of the people. We put the crooked official in power and we can take them out of power.

        • Bama Bill

          And why did Soros give Comey’s wife $675,000? for her campaign about that time? Soros group of multi-billionaires each spend at least $250,000? a year on liberal groups like MoveOn. Amount may be more, that’s from memory. Thanks to Soros the U.S. Dollar became the international currency when he “Broke the Bank of England” back in the 70’s. We now have the “European Union” thanks to him! Maybe “Cesspool” fits better?

        • Scott

          Thank you for the clarity on Hillary and the collusion with the FBI they do work together very will then add the DOJ and basically all of DC government departments. On the Moron issue you have good point but lot of people choices is base on brainwasing the new generation, Propaganda by media and fake stories by so many areas. Your right in they do not value the Constitution and laws if they did we would not have the illegal situation. The young they want NOW big government but that is brainwashing by the Democrats education department and they have no real bad experience with Communism. The older generation that are Democrats today think of the pass and do not see the lawlessness they are today and they do not want to see the corruption they create. Democrats new ideas is destroy American by destroying white males, moral degenerations through education and have NO God in the culture NO free speech. Big government can tell every one want they can keep in money and choices. NO Freedom just elites telling you. Look to China as example and Cuba all place Democrats like.

      • loren lane

        It should be obvious that the so-called FBI are nothing more than paid Clinton ‘actors’…they have little to do with FBI work.

        • Scott

          You have good points and your right but even worse given the FBI agent that was NOT fired but removed to place so he can still do his work without being seen. It took months to find out Mueller took agent off the investigation because of anti Trump tweets. But he was in charge of investigation of Hillary E mails and other things and he block information damaging to Hillary investigation so the FBI is covering up for this guy. The FBI is group of cover up agents for the DNC, Hillary or just say Clintons and others. Mueller is no better for Media did not report this did they its just another cover on in this Fake investigation to create Media propaganda to impeach Trump and intimidate him and anyone that works for him. FBI is a large group of Democrat agents wanting to destroy the voters choice to be President and Cover up DNC bad behavior. FACT is Mueller head FBI agent that was anti Trump and pro Hillary being removed from investigation. He has was in charge of a lot other things he cover up for Hillary. Its FBI corruption fact and Mueller is corrupt for he supports the lies in this fact investigation for their is NO crime for him to investigate fact. DC hate for the voters who are not Marxist.

          • loren lane

            Here’s the gist of it:
            The FBI is group of cover up agents for the DNC, Hillary or just say Clintons and others.

            These FBI agents have no ACTUAL experience at all being an agent. They are ACTORS.

          • Scott

            My problem is the word Actors for FBI for they have real power to hurt people or give out favors for political ends like all these agents are doing now. Actors specializes in creating emotions but agents help cover up crimes like Hillary did or create propaganda for Democrat propaganda media outlets with lies fake news like ABC did.

            Actors and FBI is to soft for me they are doing real damage to this Nation by supporting lies, creating fake stories and wanting to destroy this President by making up fake evidences like the Dossier the foundation for this FBI special fake counsel. The President hater agent (actor government investigator) was removed so he can work on other things behind the investigation maybe even plant evidences or tap more phones to make more propaganda (LIES) but actors do not have force of law of federal government behind them. Its just worse the Democrats have created in the FBI NO and mean NO integrity to the LAW the meaning of the law and the Constitution they are Marxist Democrats today for that is how you get job in DC today they are unionized to be Marxist. Thanks for your comments it bring clarity to the situation we have with the FBI a non trusted government agency after Hillary lies by the head of the FBI fake investigation and DOJ another cover government agency for Democrats.

      There’s no longer main stream media in America. There is one choice for fair and balanced journalism OAN🇺🇸

      • PatrickJ

        And they are growing.

      • ray

        The main stream new media has been watching itself shrink as independent journals, and civilian journals … post news on social media before they do. So their audience is shrinking .. just like printed news papers subscriptions are shrinking. Main stream media is on cable or over the air as set times … independent news media on social media .. is practically instant. So this is why the main stream media published fake news … and wants you to believe independent news is fake .. they want to discredit independent news and journalists. But the times are a ‘changing. The main stream news media is losing its power to shape the American people. Americans want news on demand .. scheduled news is already old news by the time it airs.

        • PatrickJ

          You make a good point, ray. About Comey, I mean. The Clintons had an ability for controlling others like no others before them, including Comey and the FBI. Amazing, when you think about how long they have gotten away with all the things they have done. It started in Little Rock, Arkansa all those years ago when they were already doing their dirty deeds.

          The Hearst family is why hemp is ‘Illegal’, so we had to make paper from wood. Hearst owns most of the newspapers in the country. By controlling the media, the Unions and Democrats think they can take over by spoon feeding propaganda to us. Only trouble is I haven’t bought a newspaper in decades. The Washington Post’s circulation is less than 400,000, much of which is bought by govt. departments. So their opinion polls are based mainly on Govt. employee’s opinions. They are NOT “Workers”, hope several departments like Labor, Education, and the over a dozen duplicates are closed! Richest counties in the U.S.A. are around D.C.! Govt. jobs paying 3 times what the same job pays in the private sector, lifetime pension, Cadillac health ins. NUTS!

          • PatrickJ

            While doing a little reading on the subject, I came across this:

            “Actually, in 1916 the US Dept of agriculture reported that 1 acre of hemp equaled 4.1 acres of trees for paper production. They also estimated that by 1940 all paper would be made from hemp, meaning that no further trees would need to be used in paper production. Notice that this is just about the same time that Hearst with his investment in the timber industry really began working to make hemp illegal.”

            “In the U.S. in the early 1900s, W. R. Hearst worked hard to make hemp illegal to protect his timber interests since that’s what he used for paper for his newspaper. A few other industries grew up during this period, collusion ensued, and now those industries are too entrenched to change.”

          • Bama Bill

            Thank You! I appreciate additional facts, I had read this but couldn’t remember the source. I recently read hemp is “Sort of Legal”? again. It is nuts that maraijuana is “Legal”, but hemp is still “Illegal”! Makes very nice clothes also. We need to find out the reason things have happened, and who was responsible. Then teach the facts in “American History” in schools! The “Unionized” teachers are making kids into “MORONS”! Proof, last 8th grade test scores; no state scored 50%, CA scored under 25%. This was in reading, and math. As CA didn’t test “Science”! When I went to school in the 60’s 70% was an “F”!

          • PatrickJ

            The real reason behind the things that happen is usually money. Sometimes a little, sometimes a lot. But anything that gets done these days is because money is involved. At least on some level. Because without someone making money on the deal, nothing moves past the original idea. That’s because the Sharks and the Wolves have to be paid before anything moves forward.
