Former F.B.I. Director James Comey can easily be considered the biggest thorn of incompetence that has ever tortured the sides of both Republicans and Democrats alike. He got fired for claiming that Hillary Clinton and her aide, Huma “Mr. Weiner” Abedin committed “many felonies,” and he leaked and lied about President Donald Trump.
He also dropped a nugget or two about former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s involvement in the Hillary Clinton email scandal and cover up (ie the felonies that she really did commit). This has drawn the attention of Senate Republicans who want very much to speak to her regarding it, The Hill reported today.
It was she who directed that Clinton’s formal investigation be called simply a “matter” so that she stood a better chance in the polls, in spite of the truth. This made the F.B.I. partisan and actively working to help against President Trump in the election.
Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said trhat “it would be very helpful” if Lynch would testify before “the Judiciary panel, which oversees the Justice Department,” it is reported.
“Frankly, a lot of what Hillary Clinton was exposed to by Director Comey’s misconduct and the way he handled that was apparently in response to his lack of confidence in the attorney general, and I think there is a lot we could learn from that,” the Senator from Texas said.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) is on board with the idea stating that the panel has to “get more involved.” This has been the wish of most Americans for months!
He also proclaimed,”The accusations now that – the current and former attorney general were political — that has nothing to do with Russia as much as it has to do with how the Department of Justice is being run.”
Trump himself tweeted, “A.G. Lynch made law enforcement decisions for political purposes…gave Hillary Clinton a free pass and protection. Totally illegal!” This a truth that seems to painfully clear to all who view the facts.
The hardest part about this case is that not only was Comey awfully incompetent, something which both sides agree on, but he also is an admitted leaker.
That means that he can not be trusted by anyone, for he is dishonest.
Almost everyone tied to this whole affair has been dishonest, except it appears, Mr. Trump. That reality is sure to anger more than a few Democrats.
