I don't care what any transcript says, Russian or otherwise. It always could have been tampered with and there is no reliability or trust left in this matter.
THE MEETING TOOK PLACE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT OF FBI DIRECTOR COMEY.
That is all anyone needs to know.
I do believe Former Director Comey was a political operative. His last minute announcement about Secretary Clinton immediately before and while people were voting is DEFINATELY a political move. It completely changed the face to the final outcome, even down ballot. That is fact.
Is Former Director Comey a political operative now? The department doesn't seem to think so. The FBI was investigating the issues with an foreign country tampering with USA domestic elections. If the department states the investigation can and should go forward then it is unfair to state Former Director Comey was a political operative. He was not.
There is a line between outrageous behavior to taint an election and subverting the sovereignty of the USA. There is a huge difference. The former director seemed compelled to bring unnecessary and meaningless information before the electorate. It was completely obvious it was to taint the existing trend. The only purpose to that announcement WAS TO DESTABILIZE voters in their resolve.
The former director would never subvert the sovereignty of the country. It would be a bridge too far. He wouldn't do that.
The only way accusing the former director of treason is to tie him to a Russian affiliate. He was careful. He wasn't going to compromise himself in that way or his country.

They also penned a letter to Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe requesting that they preserve any materials prepared by the former Director regarding communications he had with senior White House and Department of Justice officials related to investigations into Russia's efforts.
The Senate Judiciary Committee requested similar materials Wednesday from both the FBI and the White House "including any audio recordings," according to the a press release.
These requests join similar requests from the House Oversight Committee, who demanded that the FBI turn over all documents that it has about communications between the president and Comey on Tuesday night. House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz of Utah told NBC News that he'd subpoena it if necessary....
This was suppose to be a meeting whereby strategic military movements against a common enemy. Where are the military people? Why the enormous amount to propaganda that benefits Putin?
