Democrats have been apoplectic about former FBI Director James Comey for months. Initially, it was for his two investigations into Hillary Clinton’s home-brew email server and careless handling of classified information during her tenure as Secretary of State. Now it’s all about his termination as Director of the FBI by President Trump.
Last year liberals hated the guy; now he’s their hero who was going to take Trump down over their imaginary connection between our POTUS and Russia.
The reality is that Comey might be the last victim of the reckless and self-serving Clintons.
“It was Bill Clinton’s dodgy meeting on the airport tarmac with Attorney General Loretta Lynch last summer that compelled Comey to come forward with his extraordinary press conference letting Hillary off the hook while explaining clearly that she is in fact a criminal,” writes PowerLineBlog.
According to the Washington Post:
So now it can be told: Bill Clinton cost his wife the presidency.
Almost three hours into a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, FBI Director James Comey shed new light on his decision to go public about his agency’s investigations into Hillary Clinton’s emails, first in July 2016 and again, with devastating effect, in late October, 11 days before the election.
The specific reason he cited: Bill Clinton’s decision to board Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s plane in late June, when their planes were both on a tarmac in Phoenix. “The capper was — and I’m not picking on Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who I like very much — but her meeting with President Clinton on that airplane was the capper for me,” Comey said. Comey decided to “step away” and announce, without consulting the Justice Department, that Hillary Clinton shouldn’t be charged.
In Comey’s telling, this public announcement in turn required Comey to speak up again in October, when more emails were found. “Having done that [the public announcement] and then having testified repeatedly under oath that we’re done,” he said, “it would be a disastrous, catastrophic concealment” not to go public on Oct. 28 with the newly discovered emails.
It’s a tragic chain of events: If Bill Clinton hadn’t boarded that plane in June, Comey might not have spoken out in July, which means he wouldn’t have felt compelled to speak up again in October, which means Hillary Clinton would have won the election in November.
Is this not the best karmic payback ever?
