When all is said and done, James Comey may one day be labeled as a man who tried to do right in a bureaucracy of corruption and extortion. And by this, one simply has to look at his press conference back in July where although he didn’t file an indictment on Hillary Clinton, he made sure the public understood that she had committed crimes under the Espionage Act.
But now it appears that riding the fence of trying to follow justice to the best of one’s ability while having to live under the Damocles Sword of a Clinton machine that envelopes every kernel of government is no longer an option, and late last week FBI Director Comey finally took a stand.
Of course the Clinton machine immediately expressed outrage at this, and concocted every type of excuse as for why the re-opening of the case against Hillary should never have been made public. And in fact, the most ignorant Attorney General Loretta Lynch had the audacity to come out publicly and say that this is unprecedented in the annals of the Department of Justice so close to an election.
But sadly, and the reason I point towards Lynch’s ignorance, is that 20 some odd years ago the same Department of Justice announced just four days before a Presidential election the indictment of Casper Weinberger, which ironically hurt the incumbent George H. Walker Bush and aided Bill Clinton.
Yet even with the recognition that the lawful confiscation of Anthony Weiners computers appeared to contain thousands of emails tied to Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton that may not have been handed over during the original investigation, without a warrant these emails could not be both read, or used as evidence against Hillary. But there was indeed legal precedent for seeking a warrant to access these emails since they fall under the guise of EXEGENT discovery.
This I believe is the reason for James Comey publicly sending a letter to Congress informing them of the information, and that the FBI was re-opening the case. Because as we know from the first investigation, Loretta Lynch’s long ties with the Clinton’s were the probable reasons why an indictment, and in the case over the weekend why a warrant, were not issued from the DOJ prior to late this afternoon.
By putting the Attorney General’s back up against the wall by bringing Congress in on the investigation, it assured that a warrant to access Huma’s email located on the Weiner joint computer would be issued.
And sure enough, it just was.
Over the past several months, scuttlebutt from within the FBI has had many long-time agents seething on how Hillary Clinton was let off without an indictment, and per some sources may have been the ones leaking information to the press, to Wikileaks, or other media outlets. And in an interesting article published just today by Daily Mail, a large number of agents had apparently stopped communicating with Director Comey, and many had even put in their resignations because of how Hillary Clinton was treated.
Like him or not, it appears that FBI Director James Comey did have a shred of a conscience, and chose to take one of the boldest steps one could ever do in the face of scrutiny, lack of support, and perhaps even the threat of death. And while the Democrats whine and moan and shriek how it was either the Republicans, or the Russians, or some alien agenda that forced this investigation to re-open, the fact of the matter is everything done over the past 72 hours to re-open the case against Hillary Clinton was done correctly, and now it is up to the voters in nine days to decide whether they want to see this trial go all the way to its bitter end.
