FBI's Comey Is Complicit In Clinton Email Scandal

Should James B. Comey, Jr. continue as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation? Is he professionally compromised? Does Mr. Comey continue to enjoy the “special trust and confidence” of the American people, the rank-and-file of the FBI, and the thousands of government employees holding security clearances and access to classified information?

On Tuesday, July 5, 2016, Mr. Comey conducted a fifteen-minute press briefing detailing the elements of the crime of mishandling national defense information, specifically Title 18 U.S.C. §793(f) and the FBI’s investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of an outlaw email server. 

Comey provided the following detailed examples of how Mrs. Clinton violated the law: “110 e-mails in 52 email chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received. Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information.” 

Comey charged that former Secretary of State Clinton (and her colleagues), “were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” And he confirmed that, “any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position, or in the position of those government employees with whom she was corresponding about these matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation.”

With respect to Mrs. Clinton’s culpability in the compromise of national defense information to hostile actors, Mr. Comey stated: “We do assess that hostile actors gained access to the private commercial email accounts of people with whom Secretary Clinton was in regular contact from her personal account. We also assess that Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal e-mail domain was both known by a large number of people and readily apparent.

She also used her personal email extensively while outside the United States, including sending and receiving work-related emails in the territory of sophisticated adversaries. Given that combination of factors, we assess it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal email account.”

Unbelievably, having defined the elements of a national security crime and given specific examples of Mrs. Clinton’s reckless, dangerous conduct in each case, Mr. Comey concluded that “no charges are appropriate in this case” and that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” Mr. Comey did not tell the truth.  Many people, in and out of government, know Mr. Comey’s blatant falsehood. 

Exhibit A is the July 2015 prosecution of Bryan H. Nishimura, a Navy reservist in Sacramento, California, who plead guilty to charges – developed by Mr. Comey’s FBI – that represent a mere fraction of what Mr. Comey says Mrs. Clinton was involved in doing at the State Department.

The public’s faith in the fair administration of justice was damaged by Attorney General Lynch’s meeting with President Clinton on the tarmac in Phoenix. It was further damaged by the apparent sweetheart “voluntary interview” of Mrs. Clinton by the FBI on the Saturday of the July 4th weekend. 

Then just over 48 hours later (no doubt Mr. Comey spent the weekend carefully examining a year’s worth of interview transcripts), the proverbial stake was driven through the heart of any remaining faith and confidence in the public’s concept of “equal justice under law” or in Mr. Comey’s professional integrity by his nonsensical, contradictory, and insulting decision to let Mrs. Clinton “walk” on her national security crimes. No other federal government employee would have received the extraordinary, exceptional treatment Mr. Comey conferred on Mrs. Clinton.

Government employees with security clearances and access to classified information – especially in law enforcement, the intelligence community, and the armed forces – are shaking their heads in disgust, disappointment, and disbelief.  They now know the truth. No other cabinet secretary has ever broken the law so flagrantly or endangered national security so gravely. Mr. Comey is now complicit in Mrs. Clinton’s reckless conduct. Mr. Comey knowingly gave Mrs. Clinton a “pass.” He is compromised.

Should Mr. Comey continue as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation? No.

Throw Lynch into the mix. YES, compromised for both cases.

How many on the record criticisms from republican congressmen have you read about this issue?

Actually I don't care. I am sure he was in a horrible position, too close to the election.

I want Hillary because she is so weak. History of lying and unethical professional behavior back

to the 60s in the Nixon impeachment case. She was fired after for that.

Everyone knows the system is rigged and Trump has been saying and demonstrating that from day one.

Hillary is the ultimate insider which is why she was kicked to the curb in 08, they wanted change.

Trump wins, the only outsider left standing.

Just like John Roberts, Comey flushed his reputation down the toilet.

glenlloyd's picture

Yes, he absolutely did.

After all I'd read about how he would never allow the adminstration or the DOJ to sweep this under the rug and there he is with the broom...

jcaz's picture

So, Comey-  after determining that Hillary isn't competent with Top Secret material,  why aren't you yanking her access to it? 

If she couldn't handle it then,  why can she handle it now?

Our govt is corrupt down to the core.

Wouldn´t it be comical if Comey were charged and convicted.

Comey may bet Vince Foster'ed.   I'd really be watching my back if I were him....and left and right sides.  

..and aparently, he should be mindful of a crushed trachea nowdays too

KyttenX's picture

My guess is that Comey made the decision he did BECAUSE he was afraid he'd be Vince Fostered.

Trump is coming...

Yep she dodged a bullet, but no indictment means that she is still indictable... I think.

Remind me when I elected the director of the FBI and the Attorney General, please.

"Crooked" Comey should resign in disgrace if he has any morsel of integrity remaining in his sordid bones.

Bumpo's picture

Maybe he doesn't want to die. To tell the truth, I think he tried to have it both ways. He laid out tons of stuff most anyone would easily be indicted for, and then admitted, no one would dare take the case and risk their carreer, life, their family's lives, ect ...

Pussy chickenshits, unlike those who brought us this form of government, which no longer is in effect obviously

No. It's worse. They aren't corrupt, they are politically ignorant, and extremely selfish even though their own children and grandchildren will inherit those consequences.

It's not over, he said sanctions is something they are looking at.

That would be not allowing her access to classified material, which means

she couldn't do her job as President.

Obama can not do HIS job as president. What's to keep this bitch from doing the same thing? Yeah, I know Obama is a puppet,so were most of them.

jeez, you don't think this had anything to do with comey's time on the hsbc board do you?

They only promote people into these positions that they are 100% sure they have control over them. Obviously,  Corey and Lynch were compromised and blackmailed years ago. Their undying devotion was assured before they were ever sworn into office. Death being the only way out of their contracts.

JLee2027's picture

Comey and Lynch can both be impeached and removed. If the Republicans in the House had any balls.

OK you LIMP WRISTED GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES, time for you to EARN YOUR FUCKING PAY!!!  Either that or put your sidearm in your mouth and PULL THE FUCKING trigger!!!  I am so done with the FBI.  If you asshats have one shred of "integrity", or "honor", or "faith and dedication to the country", time for you to ANTE UP.  You have been paid FAR better than most US Citizens, and you have been "coasting".

Time to take out the trash.  Time to earn your pay and our gratitude and faith in you, the FBI  You need to PURGE the F fucking B fucking I!!!  It is now open season on POLITICAL APPOINTEES and THOSE that APPOINT THEM.  You guys in the rank and file hold the reings now.  Purge the bureau, NOW on behalf of "we the people".

We know you guys scan this.  Use your abilities, not to come down on a little fish like me, but the levithan of corruption and START CLEANING UP THE CONGRESSIONAL AND CONSTITUTIONAL MESS via LAW ENFORCEMENT.

And yes that mean Eric Holder, Lynch neeeds to be lynched, and Clinton and the rest and the BUshes.

Time to air out the laundry boys,  Find your balls, honor and integrity, and tak the mutherfuckers OUT.

I like your enthusiasm and passion.  And I concur.  The only question I have... HOW?  What are the rank and file to do?  Go on strike?  Start workplace shootings?  Dig into the files of the appointed ones and reveal what they know (and get Snowdened)?  I'm seriously interested in what it is that you (or anyone else) suggests be done.  Saying "Purge the FBI of the appointed ones" is easy.  But how do they do it?

For that matter, what do the rest of us serfs do now?  It's clear all conservatives/libertarians, and many lefties/socialists are enraged by this "pass", but what should we do?  

I watched and read Comey's presser, and my BP went off the charts.  But again, what can I do?

A. You (if your working) pay for all "Government" and handouts minus all corruption, collusion, hypothecation, $ leverage/printing/inflation/regulation/friction/spending etc/war etc.
B. 55% will vote for you to continue.
This is the best case scenario.

Everyman's picture

What the hell does that have to do with my comment? 

If you cut out the corrupt, the "unworthy" and "lazy" have to fall.  They will NOT fight long for their free cheeze.  They never have.  Why?  They can't even fight for their own sustinence or self worth.

You give TOO much creedance to the Free Shit Army.  They are PROLES and unproductive and unimagative proles at that.  They will either die quickly when free shit ends, or they will conform, that is the nature of a FREE SHIT ARMY SOLDIER.

Do not put too much creedance in them, they are not worth it.

Everyman's picture

The FBI runs stings all the time.  They are stealthy and have the capability and can run "clandestine operations" against those "under suspection", just like any other LEO issue before the FBI.  They know a crime was committed AND COVERED UP.  They have all the authority they need.  They can watch people, ask for records, and can do a lot of things regular LEO cases do.

You can do what I am doing, get the word out the the FBI, THEY are the ones that have the authority, and RESPONSIBILTY to take appropriate action.  If the "conspiracy theorists" think the FBI actually "frames innocent people" everyday, they could do th.  I don't think like that.  I want to get the word out, and TO THE FBI, to raise up, and take out the fucking corrupt trash.  It will take out a lot of people and will be bloody.

Remember what Jefferson said about the "tree of liberty"? 

Kind of like Gladiator, Rome only needed one good man, Maximus!  I am trying to inspire our "Maximus" in the FBI.  There is one, don't care either if the particular FBI Maximus wears a skirt either.

Faith, and honor needs to be re instituted at ALL agencies and LOTS of Federal Employees are corrup lazy and have to go.  Let's start with the FBI, get it cleaned up and let take the show on the road purging all the Political Appointees from the Federal Government employment system, get rid of all the corruption.

This is the "Do Not pass Go Suare and moment in history.

Will no one stand?

Everyman - Intelligence has exposed her full frontal. That user asked you a serious question what fo do about it. I will answer. Intelligence funds a franchise style labor union structure and political social media platform. Give a franchise or a site to any that want them. This supports nationalism instesd of delusional empire building by CFR and BIS.

It continues until more and more people refuse to comply with a immoral and corrupt system, including financing, protecting and legitimizing its continued existence. Unfortunately our education system has been corrupted by eliminating critical thinking and replacing it with propaganda. Things will have to get pretty bad before we see the tipping point of persons supporting and enabling the corrupt elite turn and eliminate those giving the orders.

This thing is way bigger than most people can -or even want to grasp. Lots of moving parts. Not just a coupla bribes here and there

For anybody paying attention, yesterday, basically the 240th anniversary of the Republic, the Clinton Foundation administered the coup de grace.

The Clinton Foundation has totally pwned Fed.gov. In every sense of the meaning.

There's a reason 30,000 emails can never be read by anybody outside the Foundation. They detail the individuals and organizations making it all happen.

Embrey's picture

That's ludicrous, if I were to believe that then the next thing you will be telling me is that the Supreme Court justices will start writing laws when components of a law like the Affordable Health Care Act are deemed unconstitutional.
Oh wait ...
