FBI Director James Comey – finally takes his stand
US Federal Bureau of Investigation
Yesterday, FBI Director James Comey sent a three paragraph letter to Congress that said the FBI had uncovered new intel with regards to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal via an investigation into Anthony Weiner.
Ever since the announcement hit the media, seemingly crawling out of the woodwork and just about every corner are people who claim that James Comey is trying to mess with the election due to the timing of the letter to Congress, others claim that he is trying to save face, few even think that he’s lost it…
Reports hit the wire that he blatantly disregarded the DOJ by announcing the letter, blah, blah, blah.
Then on the other hand, this role reversal happened as well. Now Trump supporters who were once pretty much against the guy are digging him.
Everyone has an opinion, yet no one actually looks at the message that is so clearly sent. It’s absolutely mind boggling.
Director James Comey sent a message yesterday and it wasn’t in the letter that he sent to Congress.
Look, he never technically said that he would reopen the investigation into Clinton in his letter, he said that the FBI has become aware of some new emails, he only implied that he would investigate her, again and we all know that the DOJ pretty much tied his hands during the first investigation.
We all felt that he let his FBI down, he let his agents down, the public and law enforcement as a whole became tainted through his enabling someone other than himself to direct an investigation because they liked the suspect more than they liked the potential outcome of the investigation.
He allowed for himself to get caught up in politics and lost…that is not the James Comey that walked into the FBI.
So this letter comes as no surprise to me. I guarantee you, hands down without a doubt whatsoever, that his timing has nothing to do with the election.
His motives are simpler than that.
He lost a lot of respect through his investigation into Hillary Clinton and failing to file any charges once details of how the investigation was actually handled started hitting the news. He lost not only respect but I would imagine some of his dignity.
Yesterday may have been more a matter of him telling the powers that be, “do not to tell the Director of the FBI how to do his job, conduct an investigation and let a potential criminal go with no punishment whatsoever.” Which is what happened with the Clinton email scandal investigation in the first place.
He took an oath and I believe that his move was motivated by that, and only that.
If James Comey did not make this move because of the oath that he took, well then the only other logical reason to have made such a move is to be the guy that falls on the sword.
How many of you honestly believe either Trump or Clinton would keep James Comey around knowing that they cannot own him or his FBI?
Besides, do you really believe that this man is willing to work for the next administration regardless of who wins the election?
