BOOM: Louie Gohmert: James Comey Seems to be ‘Confessing to a Crime’ [VIDEO]

Congressman Louie Gohmert said on Wednesday that if the now famous but still unseen “Comey memo” does, in fact, show that President Trump tried to obstruct justice by pressuring recently fired FBI Director James Comey to drop the investigation into former Trump national security adviser Mike Flynn, then Comey himself committed a crime by not reporting it.

Rep. Gohmert referenced two sections of U.S. law that state anyone in Comey’s prior position is required to report any attempt to obstruct justice, even if it’s coming from the president of the United States.

“I’m amazed that an FBI director — a former prosecutor — would be confessing to a crime the way that it appears that he is,” Congressman Gohmert told Fox Business host Melissa Francis.

“It’s got to be immediately reported,” Gohmert stated. “And I’ve heard no evidence that he reported there was someone trying to obstruct justice back at the time [of the meeting that reportedly took place between President Trump and Comey], it sounds like he waited only until it was politically expedient which would make it a crime for him,” he declared.
