Comey Had Hillary’s Back the Whole Time

According to newly released evidence, he concluded the investigation months before it was completed.

Well, well, well, it looks like James Comey decided to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for her home-brew server months before the FBI had concluded its investigation. Members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday revealed in a letter sent to current FBI Director Christopher Wray: “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. 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. Conclusion first, fact-gathering second — that’s no way to run an investigation. The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy.” The letter was signed by Republican Senators Chuck Grassely and Lindsey Graham.

As we long suspected, the fix was in before the investigation even got rolling. Continuing the investigation for months merely served to provide the façade of a non-biased effort. Meanwhile, on Tuesday, the FBI rejected an open-records request by lawyer Ty Clevenger on the Clinton investigation, stating, “You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal interests of the subject.” This response from the FBI is flat-out ridiculous. One of the biggest stories of last year is not in the public’s interest? Please.

In a related story, on Thursday, U.S. District Judge James Boasberg ordered the FBI to disclose the details on how it handled its investigation into Clinton. Boasberg stated, “After reviewing the document in camera, the court concludes that it largely rehashes information already made public, thus obviating any need for secrecy.” Slowly but surely the truth behind what all went on in the FBI’s investigation into Hillary’s server-gate is finally coming to light.
