It appears the FBI likes to make very important decisions without getting a proper consensus. Earlier this week, the agency decided that the public is no longer interested in Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal and won’t release any more documents pertaining to the case. Now, it turns out that former Director James Comey had predetermined Clinton’s innocence and already drafted an exoneration before the investigation concluded.
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) discovered this development in unredacted transcripts which he provided on his website:
According to the unredacted portions of the transcripts, it appears that in early April or early May 2016, Mr. Comey had already decided he would issue a statement exonerating Secretary Clinton. This was long before FBI agents finished their work. Mr. Coney even circulated an early draft statement to select members of senior FBI leadership. The outcome of an investigation should not be prejudged while FBI agents are still hard at work trying to gather the facts.
During his testimony back in September, Comey was asked directly by Republican Congressman John Ratcliffe, “Did you make the decision not to recommend criminal charges relating to classified information before or after Hillary Clinton was interviewed by the FBI on July 2nd?”
“After,” Comey replied, under oath.
Now, Grassley and other senators are asking for any and all communications Comey drafted about the closing of the investigation and any other records from the Office of Special Counsel to see if Comey is lying.
Meanwhile, it looks like the fix was in for Clinton. Comey was obviously in her corner and then there was that tarmac meeting between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton. Is that why Hillary always acted so confident in the face of harsh scrutiny and threats of jail time? Perhaps she knew the outcome, as well?
So, yes! We’re very interested in this case. Not only for Clinton’s abuse but for the FBI’s neglect and apparent cover up. Is that why they don’t want us meddling kids poking around?
