On the eve of James Comey's performance in the Senate with indications on the case of Russian communications of team of Trump has published a detailed portrait of the director of FBI dismissed by Trump. offers full translation of article of Nicholas Shmidl. In more than three decades before FBI has begun to investigate whether there was conspiracy between members of team of Donald Trump and the Russian State, James Comey is recently dismissed director of bureau — I have foretold a gain of America Russia. Then he was an undergraduate of College of William and Mary in Virdzhiniiya the columnist of the student's newspaper. His columns derided everything — from the corrupted politicians to classmates worrying about how they will live after release. In the column which has left December of year he parodied the peacekeepers urging to finish Cold War. "It is time to stop and think of a nuclear Holocaust — he wrote — I Doubt that many of students have found time about consequences of the nuclear conflict". He warned the university gym for certain the student's tournament on basketball will be closed, will be interrupted, will cease to shoot new films about life in a campus.

"I hope, you see that you can leave Flynn alone now" — Trump has told as he approves Comey in the notes published on the eve of senatorial hearings. However Comey hasn't closed case. Of course, Izz of the fact that Trump continued to meet him and to discuss the investigation connected with Russia, Comey became not only the representative of bureau, but also some kind of witness. Comey has told that after the January meeting in Trump's Tower in Nyyuyorke he at once, having got into the official car, has written down on the laptop содерж
