Comey Back to Testify: This Time to Tell the Truth
Looks like Comey may have to cut his hiatus short. Also, he might want to put aside a few dollars her got from that book deal. Looks like he needs a lawyer.
The discrepancies in Comey’s testimony raised a lot of eyebrows. Now, Comey has some explaining to do.
As we dig deeper into the plot of crooked Hillary, we find more and more people tangled in her scheme. Former FBI Director James Comey talked a good game in his testimony on Capitol Hill. In fact, he stated that he took over the investigation because he felt the meeting on the tarmac between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch compromised Lynch.
As we previously reported, America knows that Bill Clinton’s brokered a deal for Hillary Clinton in his secret meeting with Lynch. As usual, the Clinton’s used their influence to stay above the law.
However, it’s now clear that Lynch wasn’t the only one the Clinton’s were able to roll over and rub her belly. We now learned that Comey planned to exonerate Hillary without as much as a slap on the wrist. And he made that plan before he even heard Clinton’s justifications for her irresponsible handling of her emails. Exactly what statute does “mishandling email” fall under?
Senator Lindsey Graham readies the Senate to subpoena Comey. Graham said he’s unable to reconcile Comey’s previous testimony with the facts of the case. Therefore, it’s time to put Comey back in the hot seat and make him tell the truth.
At the 5:30 mark in this video, Graham declares, “He’s coming one way or another”.
Sadly, Comey used his position as head of the FBI to run a political agenda. Instead, he should have sought justice above all else.
And true justice would require Hillary Clinton to don an orange jumpsuit and admire the view through iron bars.
According to Fox News:
Comey has not publicly addressed the claims, but they would appear to be at odds with some of his statements to Congress – and the notion that he could have drafted such a statement before the case was closed has fueled Republicans complaints all the way up to the White House about the handling of the investigation last year.
The senator noted that Comey testified earlier this year he spoke out on the Clinton case in July 2016 out of concern for the impartiality of the investigation after then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton on an Arizona tarmac. Graham said Comey also told people the real reason he jumped into the case was he thought the Russians had an email between the Democratic National Committee and Justice Department “trying to rig the Clinton investigation.”
The ex-director also told a House committee last year he made the decision to recommend against charges after Clinton was interviewed.
“I can’t make sense of this,” Graham said. “I’m very suspicious of the timing. I’m very suspicious of the reason.”
He added, “There is so much to be determined here. Comey needs to come back. What was his real reason for clearing Hillary Clinton? Had he made up his mind before he even talked to her?”
Graham spoke to Fox News one day after it was revealed the Justice Department will not allow FBI staffers to talk to members of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
In a letter, Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd told Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Ranking Member Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., that FBI officials James Rybicki and Carl Ghattas will not be provided for interviews.
The DOJ seemed to cite concerns about interfering with the ongoing special counsel probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Comey’s firing stirred up quite a bit on controversy. However, that might not be the only consequence of his actions. Perhaps Comey will face litigation.
The White House is also turning up the heat on Comey, with Press Secretary Sarah Sanders saying Tuesday the DOJ should consider prosecuting him for various alleged “improper” actions. Sanders said the former FBI director “politicized an investigation by signaling he would exonerate Hillary Clinton before he ever interviewed her or other key witnesses.” On Wednesday, she homed in on Comey’s acknowledgement that he leaked his own notes about conversations with the president.
Sanders said, “Leaking FBI memos on a sensitive case, regardless of classification, violates federal laws including the Privacy Act, standard FBI employee agreement and non-disclosure agreement all personnel must sign. I think that’s pretty clean and clear that that would be a violation.”
House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., speaking with “America’s Newsroom,” voiced some frustration with the White House’s approach to its Comey concerns.
“If you have evidence of a crime, instead of sharing it with a gaggle of reporters, share it with the people who can actually do something about it, that would be my advice,” he said.
But Gowdy went on to blast Comey, saying it’s “beyond dispute that he made up his mind not to charge Secretary Clinton before he interviewed her.”
He said the new revelations suggest “he may well have made up his mind before he interviewed the last dozen witnesses.”
“There’s sufficient factual basis to bring him in and ask him, ‘when did you make up your mind that you were not going to charge Secretary Clinton?’” Gowdy said.
Comey had been at the center of not only an Office of Special Counsel investigation but a Justice Department inspector general probe over the FBI’s handling of the Clinton case.
Obviously, Hillary did whatever she wanted. She had the FBI in her back pocket. The question is can a crooked FBI Director offer immunity to somebody with whom he conspired?
