And the WH insists that Comey criminally let her off the hook before the investigation ever got started in earnest. Once again they're pushing an account that's as close to the opposite of truth as is objectively possible.

Trump and his gang are a bunch of liars?  Why am I only hearing about this now?!

DoJ releasing the info that the FBI had more grand jury subpoenas than was initially let on and *still* found nothing probably doesn't help. Although it was probably a response to this line of attack

Thank goodness so much energy and time went into this and they didn't waste nearly as much of it investigating Baby Donald and his many connections to Putin and other wealthy Russians.

That's some terrific prioritizing there.

Yeah, a horrible person.   We're so lucky she wasn't elected.  (I'll be over here in the corner weeping and plotting the demise of the GOP).
 
2017-09-14 06:05:49 PM  
So Comey couldn't comment on Trump  being investigated for Russian collusion and he couldn't talk about how much they had investigated Clinton and found nothing because it was ongoing investigation.  Well that's bloody convenient isn't it.
 
2017-09-14 06:06:39 PM  
This is why you know Hillary won't actually ever be charged with crimes. All investigations to her are quick and clean, and by what others have said regarding the interviews themselves, were widely known to be distractions made to get people tired of hearing her name or her record.

Now compare that to Trump's investigation, which is directly linked to the investigation of Russian interference in the last election, something which has been tied to Trump's name since Spring 2015. We have Trump and his team basically being investigated by the FBI for 2.5 years and counting, all a part of the same investigation. When the dam breaks on this, it almost has to be huge. You don't investigate something for 2 1/2 years and longer if you're not getting anything.

Because a certain now retired Congressman was planning to leak the "new" found emails from Podesta's laptop.

With the amount she and her husband have been investigated, I'd almost argue she has to be one of the cleanest politicians.  If there was something, anything they would have found it by now.

Well, we do know one person that she was e-mailing back and forth with who they did look deeply into...

Some of them definitely are liberal, some might want a rise but a few do seem to genuinely dislike her and blame her and her husband for the state of the DNC.

If I had to guess, this is the Bureau's way of subtly undermining the White House on its claims that Comey 'exonerated' Clinton.

Well thank god we combed through grandma's e-mails with an electron microscope because people keep talking about how corrupt she is. Meanwhile people I knew who grew up in NJ have said for years Trump was rumored to be laundering money for the Russians, dating back to when he was setting up shop in Atlantic City. Unless it was never supposed to be a real casino, how hard do you have to fail to run a casino into the ground in such a high traffic area?

As I posted yesterday, I believe that Comey is a lot more nefarious than people realize.  Comey had to have suspected that the "new" emails on the laptop had a better than average chance of being the same emails that Huma received from Clinton, that were already in the FBI's possession, given how thorough we now see this investigation was.  He could have done simple spot checking to confirm that.  He didn't **need** to tell Chaffetz, he **wanted** to tell Chaffetz.  He knew Chaffetz disliked Clinton as much as he does, and knew that he would leak the letter to the press.  Everyone talks about what a choir boy Comey is but consider how, by his own admission, he maneuvered the situation to ensure that a special counsel would be appointed after he was fired.  He knows how to work people to get what he wants.  I'm even more convinced now that he knew there would be nothing found on the laptop, but by giving the letter to Chaffetz he could have some plausible deniability for the October surprise.

/says he was only "mildly" nauseous at the thought he may have influenced the election
//an honest person would be more than mildly nauseous

It was stupid and should never have happened until her had hard information, but there is a difference.

Comey only reported the findings to Congress, who he had agreed to provide information to subsequent to their hearing that if it may be relevant. It was Congress that went public with it.  Meanwhile he had no reason to update Congress about the Trump investigation as they were not involved.

I do think Comey know what would happen and was glad that it would damage Hillary (the first announcement makes it damned clear that he didn't like Hillary). But he stayed very carefully between the lines from his perspective. Morally I think his actions were reprehensible, but I can see what his position is.
