Did you know that Loretta Lynch, Attorney General – and Obama sock-puppet just like her predecessor, Eric Holder – tried to prevent James Comey from going public with the rejuvenation of Hillary Clinton’s email investigation?
Well, now you do.
From the always Democrat-friendly Jane Mayer, writing for the always Democrat-friendly New Yorker magazine:
On Friday, James Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, acting independently of Attorney General Loretta Lynch, sent a letter to Congress saying that the F.B.I. had discovered e-mails that were potentially relevant to the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private server. Coming less than two weeks before the Presidential election, Comey’s decision to make public new evidence that may raise additional legal questions about Clinton was contrary to the views of the Attorney General, according to a well-informed Administration official. Lynch expressed her preference that Comey follow the department’s longstanding practice of not commenting on ongoing investigations, and not taking any action that could influence the outcome of an election, but he said that he felt compelled to do otherwise.
Comey’s decision is a striking break with the policies of the Department of Justice, according to current and former federal legal officials. Comey, who is a Republican appointee of President Obama, has a reputation for integrity and independence, but his latest action is stirring an extraordinary level of concern among legal authorities, who see it as potentially affecting the outcome of the Presidential and congressional elections.
“You don’t do this,” one former senior Justice Department official exclaimed. “It’s aberrational. It violates decades of practice.” The reason, according to the former official, who asked not to be identified because of ongoing cases involving the department, “is because it impugns the integrity and reputation of the candidate, even though there’s no finding by a court, or in this instance even an indictment.”
A few questions for Ms. Mayer – and Ms. Lynch as well:
-While I’m sure it is very altruistic that Attorney General Lynch wanted to avoid “taking any action that could influence the outcome of an election”, did it occur to her that not announcing thousands of emails were found on Hillary Clinton’s closest confidant’s personal server could influence the election as well? I didn’t think so.
-And, Ms. Mayer, it is nice of you to remind us that James Comey “is a Republican appointee of President Obama”. Now let me remind you that he is not; that James Comey left the Republican Party at least a year before.
-Also, Ms. Mayer, how come you did not find it important to mention that Mr. Comey had let the Clintons off the hook at least two other times in the past? And that his connection to the Clintons might have copped him a high-paying job with the HSBC, whose clients somehow felt it necessary to contribute something like $81 million to the Clinton foundation?
See, by not mentioning things like this, you leave the impression that James Comey is a Republican who owes Hillary Clinton nothing, and is on a mission to get Donald Trump elected. Not someone who rejected the Republican Party and owes plenty to the Clintons…which would lead to the conclusion that if he went public with this, there must be one excrement-load of evidence causing (forcing?) him to do so.
Well, at least you mentioned the odoriferous meeting Lynch had with Bill Clinton on the tarmac at Phoenix’s airport — if only to try and minimize its possible significance.
Thanks for that. Thanks a bunch.
