Yesterday’s announcement by Jim Comey – done by email to Congressman Jason Chaffetz, by the way – that he was dropping the Hillary email investigation surprised everybody. How is it possible for the FBI director to zigzag so quickly from the opposite conclusion he announced eight days ago? Is he bipolar?
Coercion might explain it for one. Threats for another. Still, Comey has cemented himself in history as one of our country’s biggest villains, right up there will Benedict Arnold.
This comment I ran across really sums it up: “Maybe the day we learned Hillary used her maid to run her SCIF wasn’t the right day to say the #FBI won’t seek Hillary’s prosecution. Maybe”
The blogger was referring to this story in the New York Post in case you missed it:
As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material.
In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.
Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets, further opening the Democratic presidential nominee to criticism that she played fast and loose with national security.
Clinton would first receive highly sensitive e-mails from top aides at the State Department and then request that they, in turn, forward the messages and any attached documents to Santos to print out for her at the home.
Among other things, Clinton requested Santos print out drafts of her speeches, confidential memos and “call sheets” — background information and talking points prepared for the secretary of state in advance of a phone call with a foreign head of state.
“Pls ask Marina to print for me in am,” Clinton e-mailed top aide Huma Abedin regarding a redacted 2011 message marked sensitive but unclassified.
Unbelievable. If someone put this in a novel, it would be considered an unrealistic development.
And yet Comey made his announcement, which incidentally didn’t say anything about the Clinton Foundation examination.
Diehard Dems and the lackey media will trumpet this as freeing her from any suggestion of wrongdoing.
What it does, is completely vindicate Donald Trump’s assertion that the system is rigged. It deepens the feeling that we are in a corrupt government and must get rid of the current crop of occupiers.
He couldn’t have asked for a better vindication.
