40. Comey Was In Over His Head

Last edited Mon Apr 16, 2018, 03:06 AM - Edit history (2)

He could not stand up to the pressure being exerted by Congressional Republicans that wanted dirt on Hillary Clinton and they pounced on email.

Even though Rice and Powell before her also used a private server Comey opened a narrow investigation on Clinton.

Stepping back, when Bush was elected the whole Whitehouse staff was set up on the RNC email server and when that was exposed the millions of emails were simply deleted. With those as a background the Comey investigation had the look and feel of a witch hunt and when virtually nothing was found Comey was in hot water for a partisan bias and unfit to continue as FBI Director. Then the FBI was investigating another case (Weiner) and found a backup copy of Clinton email.

Comey caved and misled the American public that they were in possession of New Clinton when all they had was a backup file. He could have clearly indicated that it was a backup file and they wanted to compare that with the email they already had and to get back with the American people shortly. Instead he made it sound like something Clinton was hiding, which is proof that he was in over his head and caved. Because of how uneven he handled this (not examining Rice and Powell) he would have to resign if she was elected. Comey is no hero. Far from it.
