At a congressional hearing on September 28, 2016, FBI director James Comey said:
You can call us wrong, but don’t call us weasels. We are not weasels.
Apparently, no one used that word against Comey or the FBI. He came up with that himself.
Sigmund Freud would have a field day with Mr. Comey’s psyche. Dr. Freud would say he protests too much. Why does the FBI Director compare himself—and the now perhaps forever tarnished organization he heads—to a pack of weasels? Guilty subconsciousness perhaps, Herr Doctor?
Recall, the FBI’s motto is Fidelity, Bravery and Integrity. Once important American ideals, today reduced to a bumper sticker slogan. Consider the bureau’s former principled reputation of incorruptibility: of holding the powerful to account without fear or favor.
Well, I had forgotten the FBI motto. Did I ever know it? A high school buddy of mine used to go on and on about J Edgar Hoover’s personal life such that I never had any interest in the FBI.
As for the non-prosecution of Hillary Clinton or anyone else involved in the email scandals, Hunter says:
… the fix was in before that. Specifically, when spouse Bill Clinton had an “unplanned” chinwag with Attorney General Lynch. Both in different private planes which by “sheer coincidence” crossed paths on the same tarmac in Phoenix. So the nation’s top prosecutor meeting privately with the spouse (an ex-president) whose wife is the prime subject of a then looming criminal indictment isn’t a colossal conflict of interest? Moreover, is it any surprise that just days after that infamous meeting AG Lynch announced that Hillary would face no criminal charges?
It’s a big deal, because:
Those unsecured, illegal devices likely hacked by bad actors in which Mr. Comey stated 110 emails were classified—and 48,000 (read: 33,000 originally reported and an additional 15,000 recently uncovered) were destroyed.
And some Hillary voters need reminding of more:
If the email scandal wasn’t malfeasance enough, there is the Clinton Foundation “charity”: a pay-for-play scheme involving high-level political favors in exchange for a personal Clinton slush fund (while Mrs. Clinton was Secretary of State). The 238 million the Clintons have “earned” after being “dead broke” 15 years ago doesn’t even factor in the 2 billion dollar foundation they control. By his own Freudian omission, Mr. Comey’s a weasel, but the crooked Clintons are far worse: unapologetic rats who make Richard “Watergate” Nixon look, by comparison, like a church mouse.
Enough of the church mouse mentions in the same sentence as Watergate! 😉
You know, if Hillary were a Republican, Big Media would be all over her 24/7 for all her scandals.
Imagine if Donald Trump were guilty of all that.
But, instead, Big Media give Hillary a pass and go to town on Trump over his taxes.
Edward Klein has more on Comey, Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton in his new book, Guilty as Sin: Uncovering New Evidence of Corruption and How Hillary Clinton and the Democrats Derailed the FBI Investigation.
I wrote about it the other day in connection with Hillary’s health.
On October 3, the New York Post featured an excerpt from the book which explains how and why Comey let Clinton off the hook.
Ultimately (emphases mine):
Comey knew that if he recommended an indictment of Hillary — something that was fiercely opposed by the president, the attorney general, the Democrats in Congress, and the mainstream media — he’d ignite a firestorm and go down in history as the man who traumatized the country’s political system. What’s more, if after all of that, Hillary was found not guilty by a jury, it would blacken Comey’s reputation for all time to come.
So, here’s what happened.
On June 27, Bill Clinton was just about to fly out of Phoenix when his Secret Service agent told him Loretta Lynch was about to land:
“Don’t take off!” Bill barked.
As his plane skidded to a halt and then headed back to its parking space, Bill grabbed a phone and called an old friend — one of his most trusted legal advisers …
“Bill said, ‘I want to bushwhack Loretta,’ ” the adviser recalled. “ ‘I’m going to board her plane. What do you think?’ And I said, ‘There’s no downside for you, but she’s going to take a pounding if she’s crazy enough to let you on her plane.’
Americans were, rightly, angry that she allowed him on her plane, but the adviser who spoke with Edward Klein for his book explained:
He wanted to intimidate Loretta and discredit Comey’s investigation of Hillary’s emails, which was giving Hillary’s campaign agita.
Bill had the Secret Service agent ring Lynch, who was on the plane with her husband Stephen Hargove. Lynch agreed to allow him on board:
“Bill said he could tell that Loretta knew from the get-go that she’d made a huge mistake,” his adviser said. “She was literally trembling, shaking with nervousness. Her husband tried to comfort her; he kept patting her hand and rubbing her back.”
They did talk about grandchildren and golf. The adviser told Klein that the subjects of conversation didn’t matter because, in his words, all Bill wanted to do was to:
send a message to everyone at Justice and the FBI that Hillary had the full weight of the Clinton machine, the Democratic Party, and the White House behind her.
And so it turned out to be, because the following week Obama gave her a lift on Air Force One to a campaign rally in North Carolina.
Klein explains that Obama would never have offered to have her as a passenger on the presidential plane if she were in danger of being indicted.
The following day, Comey gave a long speech at a press conference about the email investigation. Lynch watched it in her office, accompanied by her closest aides.
The longer Comey went on about the results of the investigation, the more he was making a case for prosecution. Lynch was ‘livid’, Klein tells us, because:
Lynch had promised President Obama and Valerie Jarrett that Hillary would not be indicted.
Then, finally, Comey concluded:
Hillary, he said, shouldn’t be prosecuted for her handling of classified information — even though it wasn’t his job to make prosecutorial decisions. That was up to the prosecutors in the Justice Department. There was no evidence, he said, that Hillary had intentionally transmitted or willfully mishandled secret documents in order to harm the United States.
“Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
Klein ends with this:
Hillary was clearly guilty as sin, and the right thing would have been for Comey not only to say so — which he did — but to make her pay for her sins.
But he didn’t.
If this woman is elected in November — either by legitimate votes or a fix — the end of the Great Republic is nigh.
