James Comey’s involvement in cases during the 2016 election made him a central figure in American politics. Not a good place for an FBI director to be.
Not to mention his shameless testimony when he called the President of the United States a liar.
Even though he was fired by Trump—and his subsequent appearance before Congress went nowhere—we are still learning quite a lot about this man.
Specifically, his behavior during the last administration, and what he did regarding Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
According to his own testimony, it was former Attorney General Loretta Lynch who pressured him to lay off Clinton. It seemed like he wanted us to believe it was her and President Obama who wanted to protect the presidential candidate.
Now it looks like that not the case at all. It seems like Comey himself was preparing to exonerate Clinton—even before her questioned her.
From Daily Wire:
The FBI released documents on Monday that proved former FBI Director James Comey began writing his letter exonerating Hillary Clinton in the FBI’s criminal investigation into her use of a private email server before he even interviewed her.
The document, titled “Drafts of Director Comey’s July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation Part 01 of 01,” was heavily redacted to the public, but, as Fox News reported, two-Republican Senators said that it raised serious questions about the validity of the investigation…
The existence of documents that prove that Comey drafted the letter exonerating Clinton before he even questioned her calls into question his Senate testimony in June, at which he said he was told by Attorney General Loretta Lynch not to refer to the criminal investigation into Clinton as an investigation, but as a “matter…”
“We now know that he had made up his mind to exonerate her before he even interviewed her, which is a bit odd,” Graham said. “I’m very suspicious of the timing. I’m very suspicious of the reason.”
You might remember the bizarre press conference last year, when James Comey came out and declared Hillary Clinton would not be getting in trouble for her email server. Despite the fact that she broke numerous laws and regulations to set up a suspicious private server, and lied under oath about what she was doing with it, Comey gave her a free pass.
He claimed he was pressured to do so by the Attorney General. But now we have his own documents proving he was planning to give Clinton a pass all along. Even before he finished conducting the investigation, or even questioning her.
That’s pretty suspicious, if you ask me. Normally an investigation needs to be finished, before decisions are made. Federal agents will still be acquiring information, still learning just what Clinton was up to. But the head of the FBI was already planning to exonerate her.
So was the investigation even needed? Who cares about facts or evidence—if you’re just going to pardon the criminal! It doesn’t matter that Clinton deliberately hid documents from her superiors on an illegal email server. She’s a democrat running for president. That means she gets a free pass from the government, media, and even the FBI.
It’s time that we learn just what really went on during Obama’s last days in office. What else was covered up? What was James Comey up to?
Hopefully we’ll find out soon enough.
