NEW NON-HILLARY E-MAIL SCANDAL FROM FBI DIRECTOR, JAMES COMEY
WE DON’T KNOW MUCH BUT APPARENTLY THE SCANDAL DOESN’T INVOLE HILLARY
So, one might logically ask, why the announcement?
James Comey, FBI Director, has lost all credibility. The “reason” (excuse) about why Comey decided to release whatever it is that they’ve found allegedly in an investigation of Anthony Weiner unrelated to Hillary Clinton and which e-mails might not even be relevant 11 days before the election is total bullshit. You know what I think? Bunch of FBI folks weren’t pleased with the last outcome of the Clinton e-mail investigation and pressured Comey to do this. Plus, of course, all the Republican wazoos on Capitol Hill who’ve been clambering for the FBI and the Justice Department to indict Clinton for years. Apparently, Coomey has collapsed.
This strikes me as the very worst of political partisanship on the part of the FBI and Director Comey. It’s all smells like a bunch of political bullshit. This could not have waited 11 days? Okay – 12 days. No, of course, not. Because if Comey had waited until after the election he would have been accused of covering up whatever it is that the FBI has found that’s not related to Hillary Clinton’s e-mails by Republicans and Hillary haters. He would have faced withering charges of playing partisan politics by waiting until after the election. And, of course, since Republicans control the Justice Department and the FBI budget allocations, if House and Senate members what to get rough with Comey and force him to some action, budget threats are a tactic that has historically been quite successful.
Frankly, if we don’t get some real info about the who, what, where, when and why of whatever e-mails that are unrelated to Hillary Clinton but were somehow unearthed during an investigation of Anthony Weiner, (Huma Abedin, his ex wife, comes to mind) Comey should resign. FBI folks are saying that this “investigation” - whatever it is – won’t be completed until after the election. So then this announcement is actually about an ongoing investigation and not one that is completed? WTF? This is unconscionable.
But what will happen is that Comey is going to be raked over the coals and hopefully forced to resign because he released this info less than two weeks before the election for no particularly good reason that anyone can figure out. The howls are going to loud, long and he’s going to be charged with a political move that is unworthy of the FBI and an FBI Director. Naturally, Trump, who castigated Comey last time around for being corrupt, is now praising him and urging him to indict Clinton. Same with a bunch of other Freedom Caucus airheads and other Republican “leaders.” It was Democrats who were defending Comey last time around. But this time he’s going to be sorry that he caved into the pressures from Republicans if only because of the timing of his announcement. Oh, and so far, doesn’t seem to have anything to do with Hillary Clinton.
So just how did the FBI receive the “device” related to the Anthony Weiner investigation that FBI sources have said they have in their possession? A search of the Weiner home? Or did someone conveniently do the equivalent of what used to be called “Dropping A Dime” when calls to provide secret info from a pay phone cost $.10? And what’s he being investigated for? Sending dick pics over his IPhone? This may be unseemly but I don’t think it’s a crime just yet. (Just learned that the FBI is investigating him for possibly sexting an underage female.)
I’m thinking that there is going to be a firestorm over this. And I hope so. Is Comey in the pay of Russia? Wikileaks? Is he a Putin buddy like Trump? Some Republican stooge?
President Obama should order Comey to provide the public with a full explanation of who, what, where and why of Comey’s announcement. This, of course, is problematic for Comey because, as he’s stated before, the FBI does not comment on ongoing investigations. Unless, of course, it is even marginally damaging to Hillary Clinton and/or he’s been threatened with budget cuts by Republicans “lawmakers” for his agency if he did not.
This is going to blow up in Comey’s and the FBI’s face. And hopefully will bring more people to the Hillary camp.
THIS IS JUST BULLSHIT!
