Comey wanted a special counsel appointed and he knew he wouldn’t be able to do so through proper, legal, channels. In order to achieve his goals Comey broke the law. That the United States’ former top law enforcement officer broke the law to achieve his goal is retrospective proof that Comey’s firing was ultimately justified.
It now appears that there is further evidence of Comey’s unethical behavior. As reported by the Daily Wire, at the end of August:
Senators Chuck Grassley (R-IA) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) released news that they’d found evidence that in April and May 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey prepared a statement letting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton off the hook for her alleged mistreatment of classified information.
Comey posed for years as a by-the-book, no-nonsense advocate for the law. But the fact is that Comey knew that no matter what happened, Attorney General Loretta Lynch would exonerate Hillary Clinton, and so he decided to take the heat off of Lynch and President Obama by putting his reputation on the line on their behalf.
The National Review highlights the basic problem with Comey’s actions in reference to the evidence released by Grassley and Graham:
Pundits and the Trump administration are shrieking because this indicates the decision to give the Democrats’ nominee a pass was clearly made long before the investigation was over, and even long before key witnesses, including Clinton herself, were interviewed.
The evidence that the fix was in on the Clinton email investigation is not surprising. Hillary Clinton tried to do everything in her power to guarantee herself the Democratic nomination and then the presidency.
She received leaked debate questions in advance of a debate with Bernie Sanders. Clinton still has the gall to blame Sanders for her loss to Trump. The gut instinct of the American electorate in not trusting Hillary has been proven correct, again.
As more of the dirty dealings involving the actions of James Comey during the presidential campaign are revealed the cries of Russian interference in the campaign are slowly fading away.
It is becoming increasingly evident that Hillary Clinton did not have the moral character to serve as President. Smug liberals may have looked down their noses at Donald Trump’s use of the epithet Crooked Hillary. With every revelation of the questionable behavior of Hillary and those in her orbit, it rings a little truer.
James Comey may be yet another fall guy for Bill and Hillary Clinton’s morally dubious ambition. That is why hypocritical progressives are left to complain about Melania Trump wearing high heels to get on an airplane.
The Democrats continue to shoot themselves in the foot to the extent that progressive icon Michael Moore has predicted Donald Trump will win re-election. While that is bad for the Democratic party it is ultimately good for the United States and the world.
