James Comey: Publicly Release Trump Memo

Target: Former FBI Director James Comey

Goal: Release memo saying Donald Trump pressured Comey to stop investigating Michael Flynn.

Recently, Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. This move was controversial, because the FBI is currently investigating possible ties between Trump and Russia and the possibility that Russia interfered with the 2016 presidential election. Shortly after he was fired, Comey revealed that Trump had requested that Comey stop investigating former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, who was found to have questionable ties to Russia.

Comey said he had written a memo at the time of this suggestion that documents what Trump asked. If this exchange truly took place, it could be considered an obstruction of justice, which would qualify as a reason to impeach Trump. The White House officially denies that the alleged conversation happened.

Though the memo has been reported on in the media, almost nobody has seen the document apart from Comey himself. Sources close to the former director have confirmed the contents, and a New York Times reporter heard parts of the memo read over the phone by an FBI official. This document is of incredible importance and could be key in the process of impeaching Donald Trump. Add your name to the petition below to ask that Mr. Comey publicly release the memo.


Dear Mr. Comey,

Following your dismissal from the FBI by Donald Trump, you claimed that Trump asked you to stop investigating former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn. If this is true, it could be considered obstruction of justice, a charge that could be brought against Trump in impeachment proceedings.

The White House has publicly denied that Trump urged you to stop investigating Flynn, but the media is reporting your claim, and impeachment discussions are becoming more serious as a result. Considering the fact that Trump removed you from your FBI position while you were overseeing an investigation regarding his possible ties to Russia, it’s beginning to look like the administration has something to hide.

It is in the best interest of the current political environment that you release the memo that details Trump asking you to stop investigating Michael Flynn. This administration has not been forthcoming at all with the press or the public, and I strongly urge you not to follow in its footsteps.
