Flashback – Report: Obama Administration ‘Shut Down’ Comey Request On Russia Probe



By: Aaron Klein
18 May 2017

Amid a New York Times report – denied by the White House – that President Trump tried during a private meeting to convince then-FBI Director Comey to drop an investigation into fired national security adviser Michael Flynn, it may be instructive to recall reports of Obama administration officials allegedly meddling in Comey’s FBI affairs.

In one case, White House officials, according to one source speaking to the news media, reportedly “shut it down,” referring to a request by Comey to go public with FBI information regarding alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

The reports come despite Obama administration attempts to portray Comey’s role as head of the FBI as independent of any influence from the executive branch.

Fast forward to March, when Newsweek reported that Comey wanted to first go public as early as the summer of 2016 about the agency’s information on alleged Russian interference in the presidential campaign. However, Obama administration officials blocked Comey from making public statements, according to two sources with knowledge of the matter speaking to Newsweek.

The White House shut it down,” one source told the magazine, explaining that Comey had pitched the idea of writing an oped about the subject during a White House Situation Room meeting in June or July.
