Many can speculate why FBI Director James Comey was fired, but I think most of us can agree on one thing – Comey screwed up when he didn’t prosecute the real criminal – Hillary Rodham Clinton.
It’s not like there were only a couple crimes. There were many. It’s not like Comey didn’t have evidence – he had plenty, but what did he do instead?…He ignored the law and got involved in politics. He ignored the law and protected Hillary Clinton. Of course, with the body count trail like Hillary’s, if you were in Comey’s place wouldn’t you do the same? Maybe he had every right to fear for his life.
In Assistant Deputy Attorney General, Rod Rosenstein’s recent letter to Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, Rosenstein wrote the director (FBI Director Comey) was wrong to usurp the Attorney General’s authority on July 5, 2016…” He certainly got that right! That is really when things all ‘went South’ for FBI Director Comey. The FBI’s integrity was compromised…BIG LEAGUE! No FBI director ever had a press conference to announce his conclusion about a case that was so damning with evidence and then say they were going to close the case without prosecution! Say WHAT! But wait….there’s more….
H/T Gateway Pundit:
FOX News national security expert Catherine Herridge told The Five last night that FBI Director James Comey was fired because he refused to reveal the Obama administration “unmaskers” to President Trump.
General Michael Flynn resigned after Obama officials leaked his discussions with the Russian ambassador – which were completely legal – to the liberal media.
Herridge said Comey stalled turning the information over to the Trump administration.
“The accusation against the former FBI Director, and this comes mostly from Republicans, is that he has been sort of slow walking records about the Americans who were identified or unmasked in these intelligence reports and providing them to Congress. And the reason that’s a big deal is that everyone in the IC, in the intelligence community knows that there is no bigger, deeper, wider, extensive paper trail than there is when you unmask or identify an American citizen. And it should not take months. It should take weeks if not the course of several days to know who was unmasked and who made those requests and that has not been provided.”
So this just plain reaks, right! Can you say…..stalled! Yes, FBI Director Comey stalled with his findings and answers. It’s as if all the grunts in the field…the FBI agents that actually do all the hard work, but dont’ get any credit….it’s as if they had all the evidence and real information, but it wasn’t getting to President Trump or Attorney General Sessions. Sounds about right, doesn’t it?
Did the FBI Director know who “unmasked” the names? Of course he did! There’s a book. People sign in. There’s a record. Was Susan Rice’s name in that book? Damn straight it was! Should Susan Rice be scared shitless right about now that her stooge is gone? Absolutely!!! I’d say the shit is about to hit the fan. If I were Susan Rice, Hillary, or Obama….I’d be booking a quiet little get-a-way right about now. There’s a new sheriff in town and the flood gates are about to be opened.
Of course, Director Comey should have been gone a long time ago. The Democrats know it. The Republicans know it and the American voters know it.
As the FBI Director, Comey let his self ego and politics get in the way of his job. He ignored the facts, one being his boss, Attorney General, Loretta Lynch met on a tarmac with former President Bill Clinton.
He ignored the evidence of Hillary Clinton’s wrong doings – more than enough emails and records to prosecute Hillary Clinton, about her use of a private email server and classified emails being sent to various individuals including Huma Abedin through the use of that private server.
Let’s be real about one thing! Director Comey had enough sufficient evidence to justify a federal criminal prosecution and turn that recommendation and evidence over to his boss, Attorney General Lynch – who then should have then recused herself, so that a judge and jury could have determined the facts in Hillary Clinton’s federal and criminal investigation.
Instead, Director Comey didn’t allow justice to happen, but allowed politics to intervene. When his judgement became clouded, unfortunately that’s when the FBI lost it’s integrity. Director Comey violated his obligation to preserve, protect and defend justice.
Even Eric Holder concluded that the Director “broke with these fundamental principles” and “negatively affected public trust in both the Justice Department and the FBI”. Director Comey was done. It was only a matter of time.
So as I said, Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton, Obama….if I were you, I’d be booking that trip right about now. And if I was David Laufman, Chief of Counterintelligence…I wouldn’t be holding my breath much longer either. Laufman or Acting FBI Director, Andrew G. McCabe…both holdovers from the Obama administration….Something tells me the leaking faucet in Trump’s administration may get fixed real soon.
