In April of last year, President Barack Hussein Obama, went on national television and described the charges against Hillary Clinton as such: She was extremely careless with the handling of classified documents by using her private, unsecured email server, BUT, she never intended on harming the United States in any way!
About a week later, James Comey, then-Director of the FBI, began writing notes down on a pad regarding Hillary Clinton and his assessment of her was VERY familiar: She was extremely careless with the handling of classified documents by using her private, unsecured email server, BUT, she never intended on harming the United States in any way!
The problem with that letter is not so much that it matched NEARLY WORD FOR WORD what the president had said in a nationally televised statement only a week earlier, but that it also happened to have been penned BEFORE any important witnesses had been questioned (including Hillary herself) and BEFORE any emails had been seen! It’s quite clear Comey did everything possible to stab Trump in the back while protecting Hillary from prison!
Fox News Insider:
Jason Chaffetz said former FBI Director James Comey has a lot of “explaining to do” in light of new reports that he began drafting a statement exonerating Hillary Clinton even before interviewing key witnesses, including the former secretary of state.
“He’s certainly got a lot of explaining to do. He could have perjured himself,” the former House oversight committee chairman said on “Fox & Friends.”
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley and fellow GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham wrote a letter to the FBI this week, expressing concern over whether Comey made up his mind about the email investigation months before his public news conference.
“Conclusion first, fact-gathering second—that’s no way to run an investigation,” the senators wrote. “The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy.”
Chaffetz said lawmakers asked Comey under oath about how he cleared Clinton publicly within just days of the FBI interviewing her.
On Hannity last night, Trump attorney Jay Sekulow blasted Comey for testifying that he urgently needed to make his public statement following the controversial tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Lynch and Bill Clinton.
“Here’s the fact. Evidently he already made up his mind three months before the investigation really got underway. This whole thing was a fraud on the American people,” said Sekulow.
President Trump took to Twitter to weigh in this morning on what he sees as a “rigged system.”
While it’s all fine and good that they are wanting to question Comey on this conundrum, it still rubs me the wrong way that Obama is appearing to skate on this controversy. If the president had said these exact words a week prior to the FBI Director penning the now-famous letter, doesn’t it stand to reason that he was directed by the president to write those exact words? All three: Comey, Obama, and Clinton need to be subpoenaed to get to the bottom of this!
