Wingnuttia is still working on History’s Greatest Monster: Hillary Clinton! And now they think that they have found the missing link, smoking gun, and Nessie all rolled up into one! Take it away, Tiger Beat!
Former FBI Director James Comey began drafting a statement rejecting the idea of criminal charges against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her private email account about two months or more before Clinton was interviewed in the FBI probe, according to partial transcripts of interviews released Thursday by two Republican senators.
Gasp! He was preparing statements! Ahead of giving them?!
Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Sen. Lindsey Graham said they obtained the transcripts from the Office of Special Counsel, a government watchdog agency that launched an investigation into whether Comey’s actions violated a federal law against government employees engaging in political activity while on duty.
And if they had found a crime, you know what? Comey would have been preparing a statement in advance, too, also.
I’m not a Director of the FBI, and I don’t play one on TV. But I have had to make statements that carry the burden of being legally binding, and have them approved. It can take weeks to get something through a bureaucracy, so you start early and expect rounds of changes as approvals and re-wording advice is returned, and then the lawyers get their billable hands on it…
It seems to me that if there was going to be a big reveal, Comey and his team would have already had the info early in the investigation, and would be looking for supporting evidence to make their case air-tight. His professional expertise is how he got to that point in his career.
This sounds like fishing.
And right on cue:
Wow, looks like James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton long before the investigation was over…and so much more. A rigged system!
