New York Times Defends Trump Article After James Comey Calls it “Not True”

Written by  Adam Shaw

The New York Times Thursday was forced to defend itself Thursday from accusations of spreading fake news after fired FBI Director James Comey slammed an article the so-called “paper of record” published in February — calling it “not true.

At a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing, Comey was asked about a story that featured in the Times on Valentine’s Day — “Trump Campaign Aides Had Repeated Contacts With Russian Intelligence”.

The story opened:

Phone records and intercepted calls show that members of Donald J. Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and other Trump associates had repeated contacts with senior Russian intelligence officials in the year before the election, according to four current and former American officials.

However, Sen. Jim Risch (R-ID) asked about the article at the hearing,

“Okay, so again,” Risch said. “So the American people can understand this, that report by the New York Times was not true, is that a fair statement?”

“In the main, it was not true,” Comey replied, before accusing the Times reporting team of not knowing what it was talking about. “Again, all of you know this, maybe the American people don’t. The challenge — I’m not picking on reporters about writing stories about classified information… [the challenge is] that people talking about it often don’t really now what’s going on and those of us who actually know what’s going on are not talking about it.

This is what happens when you have co-conspiring liars working in unison. The nature of their deeds is dishonest so when they're exposed, they blame each other. The adage about "no honor among thieves" is still true to this date.

I believe Comey has something to hide and Obama has blakmailed him.There is so much innuendo and little to no proof that President Trump has done anythi,g illegal.Obama and Hillary seems there is plenty to put them both behind bars.Talk about collusion.Obama telling Putin that he would have more leeway to do what ever he wanted.That was telling.Putin to make sure he was elected again.That was collusion.At least the way you liberals think.Hypocrites.

What the "New York Times" is trying to say is, that it doesn't matter rather they report accurately or not... they are referred to as "The Grey Lady" and are to be believed whether they decide to use the truth or NOT!
