Over the weekend, former President Bill (Bubba) Clinton lashed out at FBI Director James Comey.
You may remember that Comey laid out the evidence against Hillary … and then let her walk.
Righties were displeased because of Comey’s illogic: The conclusion didn’t follow from the premises.
Lefties simply dispute premises … since they reveal Hillary to be a boldface liar.
Hubby summed it up: “Comey is full of bull …)
Former President calling out the current FBI Director … who gave his wife a stay-out-of-jail free card.
My question: will Comey take that lying down?
He doesn’t have to … Congress just provided Comey with an opportunity to rehabilitate his cred as a straight arrow.
You may remember that when Comey testified before Congress, he was asked if he had reviewed Hillary’s sworn testimony to Congress in which – based on Comey’s presented evidence – she committed perjury.
Comey said “no … beyond the scope … send a request to investigate.”
Well, Congress has sent the official request, stating:
“The evidence collected by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) during its investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email system during her time as Secretary of State appears to directly contradict several aspects of her sworn testimony to Congress.”
1. When asked whether she sent or received emails that were marked classified at the time, Clinton said no. FBI evidence says yes.
2. When asked whether her attorneys reviewed each of the emails on her personal email system, Clinton said yes. FBI evidence says no.
3. When asked whether there was one, or more servers that stored work-related emails during her time as Secretary of State; Clinton said no. FBI evidence revealed several servers at several locations.
4. When asked whether she provided all her work-related emails to the Department of State, Clinton said yes. FBI evidence says no.
Specifically, the FBI found ‘several thousand work-related e-mails that were not in the group of 30,000 that were returned by Secretary Clinton to State in 2014.
If Comey wants to restore any of his credibility for posterity, he should recommend that the perjury charges go to a Grand Jury.
I’m especially fond of #4: the perjury with respect to the destruction of evidence for the purpose of hindering an investigation.
More than 30,000 emails deleted and then “wiped” from all servers in clear violation of State Dept. regs and Federal laws.
Maybe ‘deletion’ was an oversight; “wiping clean” is a deliberate act.
As Comey would say: “Any reasonable prosecutor would bring charges.”
