FBI Director is still taking a lot of flak, harassment and abuse from the liberal media and Democrats concerning his handling of the Clinton email investigation and how he may have tipped the election. At one point, the FBI thought the investigation was over, but as other investigations into other cases found new evidence, it was apparent that some FBI statements were made prematurely. Is that the case with what Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee?
It’s not enough to make James Comey reach for his Dramamine again.
A week after the FBI director told the Senate Judiciary Committee that it makes him “mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on the election” with an October 28 letter to Congress about newly discovered Hillary Clinton emails, several reports suggest that Comey misstated an important fact about that potentially election-tipping revelation.
On October 28, 2016, Comey wrote to members of Congress, telling them that although he had previously announced the conclusion of an FBI probe into the Democratic nominee’s emails, “In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation.” It later became clear that the “unrelated investigation” was a inquiry into whether Anthony Weiner, estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, had sexted a teenager…
Comey’s late revelation about the Clinton email investigation did not impact anyone’s vote that I know. By that time, everyone I’m acquainted with had already made up their minds on who they were voting. And, at that time, many people that I know believe that Hillary Clinton violated federal law and committed perjury in court, before Congress and before the American people, all of which should have automatically disqualified her as a candidate for the presidency.
