After months of “will they, won’t they” anticipation for the American people, the justice department has decided that it will be opening an investigation to discover whether former FBI Director James Comey is guilty of misconduct while in office.
President Trump removed the director amid all sorts of controversy by the left; accusing him of doing so in order to somehow get the heat off of himself. Comey’s testimony before the Senate, however, made it very clear that his removal from office had no bearing on the investigations currently underway at the FBI. Apparently, there was more to that story than what met the eye though, because the way in which he left unclassified notes in order to cover himself was apparently a bit outside the norm, and worth investigating.
Via The Washington Post:
The Justice Department inspector general will review broad allegations of misconduct involving FBI Director James B. Comey and how he handled the probe of Hillary Clinton’s email practices, the inspector general announced Thursday.
The investigation will be wide-ranging, encompassing Comey’s various letters and public statements on the matter and whether FBI or other Justice Department employees leaked nonpublic information, according to Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz.
Comey has also been criticized for months by former Justice Department officials for violating the department’s policy of avoiding any action that could affect a candidate close to an election. President-elect Donald Trump has notably declined to commit to keeping the FBI director.
Comey said in a statement: “I am grateful to the Department of Justice’s IG for taking on this review. He is professional and independent and the FBI will cooperate fully with him and his office. I hope very much he is able to share his conclusions and observations with the public because everyone will benefit from thoughtful evaluation and transparency regarding this matter.”
The FBI’s probe into whether Clinton mishandled classified information by using a private email server when she was secretary of state has long been ¬controversial and politically charged.
So what does this mean for Americans? It means that we just don’t have the whole story yet. We are a nation of people who’s voices do still matter, and for who’s belief and loyalty people are fighting for.
The media and political parties have their antlers locked in a never-ending battle to the death to convince you that their agenda is the right one. We can listen to the testimony, and look back at the history, but just don’t forget that many of the things that were discussed were done behind closed doors for the sake of safety.
Comey may be indicted, and President Trump may finally escape the cloud of corruption that the media has put over him. Just don’t forget that everything you hear is slanted one way or another.
The fact that they are putting Comey under investigation makes his firing by President Trump seem significantly less suspect, however, we are far from hearing the fat lady sing on this particular story.
