John Ratcliffe: Comey’s ‘Damaged His Own Credibility’ and He’s ‘Hurt the Mueller Case’ to Prove Obstruction

‘You can’t build a case around a star witness who has damaged his own credibility and hurt his own reputation...’

RUSH EXCERPT:

RATCLIFFE: "Good to be with you. One thing that has come out of James Comey’s interviews on the book tour and the release of his secret memos, it’s ironic to me that he is the one that created the allegation of obstruction of justice against Donald Trump. Now he is the same person who has effectivel torpedoed the ability to prove obstruction. I say that because the 15 pages of the secret memos never mention “Obstruction of justice” a single time. In fact, one of the memos does the opposite. It says that it is an admission by the former director that President Trump asked him to fully investigate whether or not anyone, that the Trump campaign was colluding with the Russians. That is why trey and I refer to the memo as defense exhibit “A” in any charges that would be brought against Donald Trump. I think he has also hurt the Mueller case and the ability to prove that. You can’t build a case around a star witness who has damaged his own credibility and hurt his own reputation as I think James Comey has done over the last few weeks on this book tour."
