Former U.S. Attorney: FBI’s Comey Followed Obama’s Order to Exonerate Hillary Clinton of Email Crimes

The thing to understand, what has always been the most important thing to understand, is that Jim Comey was out in front, but he was not calling the shots.




TRUE PUNDIT REPORTS:

On the right, the commentariat is in full-throttle outrage over the revelation that former FBI Director Comey began drafting his statement exonerating Hillary Clinton in April 2016 – more than two months before he delivered the statement at his now famous July 5 press conference.

The news appears in a letter written to new FBI Director Christopher Wray by two senior Senate Judiciary Committee Republicans, Chairman Chuck Grassley and Senator Lindsey Graham. Pundits and the Trump administration are shrieking because this indicates the decision to give the Democrats’ nominee a pass was clearly made long before the investigation was over, and even long before key witnesses, including Clinton herself, were interviewed.

Obama’s April statements are the significant ones. They told us how this was going to go. The rest is just details.

The president acknowledged that classified information had been transmitted via Secretary Clinton’s server, but he suggested that, in the greater scheme of things, its importance had been vastly overstated.
