Transcript: Comey prepared extensively for his conversations with Trump

Or there's faith.

It's become more famous than me.

What's been described to us is that.

When he was still FBI director.

James come to go through extensive preparations for his meetings and conversations with the president from.

Specifically that he would do what one person described as a murder board which is.

Term from academia about preparing for a really tough Orleans and he would have.

His close advisors you know sit him down and throw questions at them trying to see if he could either you know rattle him or him to say too much or you know.

Say the wrong thing because what we're told is the reason.

The director did these things did this practice.

Was because he was very concerned that.

The president might cross the boundaries some ethical boundaries at a minimum maybe some legal boundaries as well.

Terms of a president in the middle of an investigation and an FBI director leading that investigation.

And so what we're told is that he really wanted to be sure that that he did two things.


Don't say anything to anger the president don't say anything to miss Parker confrontation anyway.

But also make sure that he didn't cross any lines into revealing too much for saying too much.

To this person who he his concern was would press him to reveal things he didn't want her.

He didn't want a lot of people know that these meetings were happening.

Because it's not even the knowledge of the meetings could you know include people's opinions about the independence of the FBI about his independence about what the White House was doing.

It was important to him that this remained.

Limited to a very small group.

Girls don't actually do tell us what happened after the conversations which is that.

He would make every effort to start taking notes about what was that immediately after leaving the meeting or had early in conversation.

And so in at least one instance that man you know as soon as he got in his car.

He's just scribbling down notes very quickly and what's been described us of the notes themselves for some of them are incredibly detailed.

Exact quotes.


Very particular.

Accounting of the conversation.

And you know I think the folks who are describing this to us to be clear our our our very much supporter of director home in don't think you should have been fired but.

As has been described it just shows the degree of sort of Whaley preparation put in to this and the degree of lawyerly documentation.

That came out of these conversations.
