Disgraced former FBI director James Comey butchered the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s crimes.
It was perhaps the most important investigation of Comey’s career and he completely lost his head. He betrayed us. Americans expect the FBI to fight for justice, not kowtow to political pressure. Comey’s “investigation” was such a sham that he drafted Clinton’s exoneration letter before he interviewed her.
“Conclusion first, fact-gathering second—that’s no way to run an investigation,” Senators Chuck Grassley and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham wrote in a letter last week. “The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy.”
Was Clinton ever in danger of going to jail? Apparently not. Her political clout shielded her from facing the consequences of her crimes.
“According to the unredacted portions of the transcripts, it appears that in April or early May of 2016, Mr. Comey had already decided he would issue a statement exonerating Secretary Clinton,” Grassley and Graham wrote.
“That was long before FBI agents finished their work. Mr. Comey even circulated an early draft statement to select members of senior FBI leadership. The outcome of an investigation should not be prejudged while FBI agents are still hard at work trying to gather the facts.”
Hard-working FBI agents were tricked; Comey invalidated their labor. He was never going to allow Clinton to face charges.
Comey’s removal from the FBI didn’t occur fast enough.
