No, Comey Did Not Just Ask For More Resources for Russia Probe

FBI Deputy Director and I guess acting director at the moment Anthony McCabe confirms he is "not aware" of Comey having requested more money to investigate Russia scandal crap, and yesterday, a DOJ spokeswoman also said the DOJ had not been so requested.

And yet this was a huge claim that went 'round the Blue Checkmark Mafia Media yesterday and this morning, too.

Why would I believe you, Journ0listers, when you are either chronically uninformed or remorselessly dishonest?

Incidentally, Chuck Grassley has hinted that Trump is actually telling the truth when he says, as far as anyone knows, Trump is not in fact a target of any FBI investigation.

Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley hinted that Comey made the revelation about Trump during a closed, classified session following a committee hearing last week. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein also attended.

"Shortly after Director Comey briefed us, I tweeted that he should be transparent. I said he should tell the public what he told Senator Feinstein and me about whether the FBI is or is not investigating the President," Grassley said.

Though that still allows some people in Trump's orbit to be targets, naturally.
