Fired FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee and lied through his teeth. We now know that Comey was working on his decision to exonerate Hillary Clinton in April of 2016 before no less than 17 witnesses had yet to testify.
We also know that he gave unprecedented amnesty to Cheryl Mills, who herself could very well have been facing charges. (Four others did too) It’s not unusual to do that but only once that witness revealed what they would testify to and would implicate that higher ups committed serious crimes. That was not the case. She was given unconditional amnesty without first making a declaration.
During his testimony Comey made this statement:
“If colleagues of ours believe I am lying about when I made this decision, please urge them to contact me privately so we can have a conversation about this.”
James Rybicki, Comey’s chief of staff, and Trisha Anderson, the principal deputy general counsel of national security and cyber law at the FBI, both testified before the committee that Comey had sent out drafts of his decision to clear Clinton of all charges months before the investigation concluded — something that Comey denied during his testimony.
Why is this important? Because it goes to the heart of his close friend, Robert Mueller’s sham investigation into Trump on charges he obstructed justice by firing Comey. In addition, Comey freely admitted that he illegally leaked memos in an effort to get a special counsel to investigate Trump.
In other words, he manipulated the flow of information in order to exact revenge on Trump for firing him for malfeasance and incompetence. By hiding the fact that he was in the process of exonerating Hillary on charges for which she was clearly guilty, he provided Trump with a good reason for his dismissal.
Trump said at the time that the fix was in and the former FBI Director was part of it. Once again, Trump was right and the liberals in both parties were wrong when they condemned him for firing the duplicitous Comey.
According to the Daily Caller:
In all, 17 witnesses would be interviewed after Comey drafted memos which pointed to Clinton being exonerated, say Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham.
Grassley and Graham sent a letter this week to the FBI asking about Comey’s decision to write the memos.
“Conclusion first, fact-gathering second — that’s no way to run an investigation,” the two Republicans wrote. “The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy.”
“The outcome of an investigation should not be prejudged while FBI agents are still hard at work trying to gather the facts,” they added.
Grassley and Graham found out about the Comey drafts while investigating the circumstances of the former FBI director’s May 9 firing by President Trump. As part of the inquiry, they were provided with transcripts of interviews given by James Rybicki, Comey’s chief of staff, and Trisha Anderson, the principal deputy general counsel of national security and cyberlaw at the FBI.
