Comey was a petty dictator. I am glad he got fired.free thoughtpolice wrote:Comey said Clinton was cleared because the investigation was finished. He was wrong to announce he restarted the investigation because he did not have sufficient evidence to reopen the investigation as was discovered after they looked at the Abedin emails.
It would have been false to say Trump was cleared because the investigation had just started and they didn't know what they might find as they continued.
Comey asked Sessions to have Trump to back off, and either Sessions didn't do it or Trump ignored him. He didn't have to even do that. He is a cop and his job isn't to warn someone that is in the early stages of committing a crime to not do it.
When you hand a cop a $50 dollar bill along with your drivers licence at a traffic stop they don't inform you that bribing a cop is against the law, they either wait for them to tell you to keep the money or they arrest you on the spot.
1) He investigated Hillary for her unsecured emails and then announced she was not guilty of a crime. This was not his job. This was the first example of him stepping outside his role and duty to push his interpretation. He should have just done the investigation and handed it off to the justice department and kept his mouth shut.
2) He met privately with that bitch Lynch where she tried to get him to downplay the email investigation. So, rather than Comey just going ahead with the investigation he made public statements to "protect the investigation". Protect it from what? All he had to do was keep his mouth shut... but no... he dug himself a bigger hole.
3) He announced that he found Wiener's emails and made a big deal out of it rather than just doing the investigation and keeping his mouth shut. He did this to "protect the FBI and the investigation."
4) He refused to answer as to whether Trump was personally under investigation even though Trump was not under investigation and the FBI has zero evidence of Russian collusion from Trump. Comey did this to "protect the investigation."
This man was a petty dictator. He justified all of his actions that resulted in great turmoil for Hillary and Trump. He did this kind of thing over and over like he was in the position of picking winners and losers all in the name of "protecting the FBI."
He is a piece of shit in my mind. He thought it was his job to run the politics of the US. I am glad he has been fired.
and further... when Trump said "I hope you can let this Flynn thing go... He is a good guy so I hope you can let this go." The answer is simple.... you say: "I understand Mr. President. If we find no criminal wrong doing by Flynn we will promptly drop this investigation. You will be the first to know." Trump would have been fine with this in my opinion. Trump was just testing to see if Comey was out for blood... and Trump got the answer he was looking for. Any sensible person should know the right reply in this case. Somehow Comey intentionally elevated Trump's language reading it in the worst possible way. Comey was shooting for Trump as part of his ongoing self-delusion that he was the puppet-master behind Hillary and Trump.
