Hillary Clinton continues to blame Russian hacking and FBI Director James Comey for her loss in last year’s election. Fellow Democrats also blame Comey for her loss. Democrat members of the Senate Judiciary Committee are preparing to grill Comey and possibly burn him at the stake, as he appears before them in a hearing today. Most assuredly, Democrats are out for his blood.
The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, is expected to be grilled Wednesday by lawmakers in both parties who have sharply questioned his judgment on the investigations into both Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and Russian meddling in the presidential election.
Unlike the House Intelligence Committee hearing in March in which Mr. Comey took the extraordinary step of confirming the existence of the Russia investigation, Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee proceeding is a more routine congressional oversight hearing — but notable because Mr. Comey has not publicly discussed his role in the Clinton investigation.
The warm reception he once received on Capitol Hill, where he was applauded for his efforts to keep the country safe, has cooled considerably in recent months.
Democrats should be thankful that Comey did not handle the Clinton affair as he should have or she would be jail today, instead of making money crying about her loss to everyone who will listen. Hopefully, Comey will point out to committee members how Obama’s Justice Department worked to protect Clinton from prosecution prior to the election.
