Angry Dems File DOJ Complaint Against "On The Side Of Putin" Comey For "Interfering In Presidential Election"

Tyler Durden's picture

Democrats are angry. Mainstream media are angry. Clinton campaign members are angry. And all because the director of The FBI dared to enforce the law as he saw fit, with awkward timing for the future warmonger-in-chief's followers.

Clinton campaign head John Podesta lashed out that the FBI chief's letter was "long on innuendo and short on facts," adding that there was "no evidence of wrongdoing, no charge of wrongdoing, and no indication that this was even about Hillary."

And so, The Democratic Coalition Against Trump filed a complaint with the Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility on Friday against FBI Director James Comey for interfering in the Presidential election, following the FBI’s decision to open up an investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails this close to Election Day. Federal employees are forbidden from participating in political activities under the Hatch Act.

Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Coalition Against Trump, added...

“It is absolutely absurd that FBI Director Comey would support Donald Trump like this with only 11 days to go before the election.

 

It is an obvious attack from a lifelong Republican who used to serve in the Bush White House, just to undermine her campaign.

 

Comey needs to focus on stopping terrorists and protecting America, not investigating our soon to be President-Elect Hillary Clinton.”

Clinton's allies are past the boiling point, as The Hill reports, fuming that they were "dumbfounded"...

“I'm livid, actually,” one Clinton surrogate told The Hill. “This has turned into malpractice. It's an unforced error at this point. I have no idea what Comey is up to but the idea this email issue is popping back up again is outrageous. It never should have occurred in the first place. Someone somewhere should have told her no. And they didn't and now we're all paying the price.”

 

Another ally called the campaign’s mood something akin to “paralysis,” and blamed Weiner’s behavior for railroading the campaign.

 

“The F.B.I. has a history of extreme caution near Election Day so as not to influence the results,” Senator Dianne Feinstein, Democrat of California, said in a statement. “Today’s break from that tradition is appalling.”

“Was this information Congress needed to know urgently? Of course not,” said Matthew Miller, a Clinton supporter who was the chief spokesman at the Justice Department under former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.

And the media is livid, having backed this horse all the way. (via The Washington Examiner)

Ousted Meet the Press host David Gregory, now a media scold on CNN, ripped FBI Director James Comey for reentering the Hillary Clinton email scandal, calling it an "unprecedented" jump into a presidential race.

 

 

Gregory said, "What is also striking is the extent to which the FBI director of the United States is allowing himself to be injected into this political campaign. Unprecedented that he would have released the information he released after a decision not to recommend indictment."

In making his case against Comey, however, Gregory did not mention that his lawyer wife has represented former Clinton aides involved in the scandal.

So let's go back in time just a few months... and see what the president, politicians and the media thought on Jim Comey then...

President Obama: "He's got the resume, but more importantly, a strong sense of right and wrong."

 

Democratic National Committee: "We are pleased that the career officials handling this case have determined that no further action by the Department of Justice is appropriate."

 

CNN: "If there is a silver lining to this episode from a public perspective, it is that the investigation itself appears to have been conducted without fear or favor. Comey is regarded as a straight shooter by both sides of the aisle. Who can forget that as deputy attorney general for President George W. Bush, it was Comey who raced into a hospital and stopped top administration officials from persuading a sick attorney general to bless their wiretapping schemes? No one should forget that President Barack Obama appointed Comey, a registered Republican, to serve as FBI director. Americans' trust in public officials and public institutions has fallen abysmally, as we all know. So far as we can now tell, the country in this instance has been well served by a leader and an FBI that has been diligent, hard-working and fair. Embittered partisans will disagree, but for my book, the FBI seems to have gotten this one right."

 

Richard Blumenthal, a former U.S. attorney for four years and former state attorney general for 20 years, said he has complete confidence in the integrity of FBI Director James Comey, a former Connecticut resident who made the announcement Tuesday: "He's a former colleague and a friend, and most important, his record demonstrates that he has both the capacity and the determination to make judgments about criminal matters with the highest degree of integrity and professionalism. So, I trust his judgment, and I believe it will have a great deal of credibility with the American people."

So, having gloated in the past over Comey's exemplary record, trustworthiness, knowing right from wrong, and patriotism, it seems that for Democrats, anyone enforcing the law and investigating allegations of lawlessness are now puppets of Russian President Vladimir Putin.  On Saturday, as conservativefiringline.com reports, Howard Dean issued a tweet telling the world that FBI Director James Comey is "on the side of Putin."

Naturally, it has nothing to do with the fact that Clinton violated the law.

"Comey needs to focus on stopping terrorists & protecting America"...

well, sir, many folks (including myself) would argue that by re-opening the investigation into Hitlery, Mr Comey is indeed focusing on stopping terrorists & protecting America.

You do realize DEMS that since you've discredited yourselves, any blame you impose on another person/party/entity, only gives credibility to that person/party/entity.

Camp Hillary has about as much credibility as pure sewage.  Every "Putin did it" article only sinks the DEM ship more.

Republicans in July:

“It is absolutely absurd that FBI Director Comey would support Hillary Clinton like this with only 4 months to go before the election."


Obama is clearly the pupetmaster in the latest Comey release. He hates Clinton and if she wins will not have a landslide.

Comey regrets the day he lied and did not lock her up the first time around when he listed Clinton's 18+ violations of federal law, instead of bending to pressure and looking the other way.

 

It's kinda fun to see the Democrat criminals so livid when someone actually enforces the law.

Fortunately Vlad seems to have a sense of humor about this shit-  hopefully he's laughing as hard as we are at this Banana Republic bullshit.

It's not even good deflection- and Hillary will look twice as stupid as she does now if she regurgitates this crap.

Man, these Russian hackers are way more sophisticated than I thought. First they hack Hillary's emails and then copy them onto Huma's laptop and then set up the whole shebang to look like a Weiner did it by planting a computer with the files at his house, but publicly throw you off the trail by leaking Putin did it. This 4 D chess is starting to hurt my head.

And to top it all off they got the Defence Dept. fighting the CIA in Syria.

Banana Republic would be a compliment.

You are a serial spammer and a serial pain in the ass. Might I politely suggest that you go fuck yourself? And get a life.

Your MO, always the same, is to post a provocative comment which SEEMS to be relevant but you have no interest in joining the discussion (and NEVER do) and your sole objective is to mislead readers into clicking on your falsified links to your BS site. That wastes everyones time is blatant SPAMMING.

Apologies to regular ZHers because I do understand these posts of mine can be irritating also, but I am donating my time to expose this shithead for the benefit of the ZH community. Please just skip over my easily recognisable posts when you see them.

In the mythology of the US citizen Democratic Party, the Wizard of Putin is a level 99 deity. In Vichy DC they literally tremble at the thought of his Staff of Debunking, and he rolls an automatic 20 when casting his Trolling with Truth spell.

Benny Boy and Sushi, tough crowd today.

All is right in life today..   Last week the gov/media types loved Comey and Zeros hated his guts.  Today the gov/media are furious so finally things are beginning to get set right in America.

The thing I like about Putin in almost every meeting or interview he says "Look, were all adults here" and then goes on to discuss real issues and real solutions.  He is the only adult in the world at this time in my opinion, other than Trump and Comey.

I dig the Vlad.   I agree- his interviews are always very interesting.  I listened to one the other day- was just a regular radio station.  He always gives the impression- without being at all arrogant- that he's as smart as anyone in the room, and can have an intelligent conversation about any subject.  Vlad and Trump will connect well on a business level, that will lead to more.

Now picture Vlad across the table from Hillary.   In 30 years (I did some biz with Clinton & Co when they still ruled Arkansas),  I have yet to hear Hillary speak on any subject to any significant depth- she's simply a vacuous bag of gas.  More telling,  she surrounds herself with less than quality people-  Huma has lasted this long only because she doesn't threaten Hillary.  Huma is the ultimate sychophant.

The Clintons have been a criminal opera-  and the fat lady is ready to sing.

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Vlad's a miracle worker. Somehow, he penetrates the Obama administration at the highest levels, and activates his deep-cover mole just in time to influence the elections. Of course, if Comey was a Russian agent, they'd have lots of evidence, right? After all, Comey has been operating right under their noses for years. So why don't they arrest Comey?

While Vlad was pulling off the intelligence coup of the 21st century, he also found time to forge thousands of incriminating emails, complete with cryptographic mail-server authentication signatures, and get them to all sync up with each other. An operation that would take thousands of people working together for months in order to pull it off in time to swing the elections.

 

This guy is an evil genius, I tell you!

The beauty of this is that the fucking retarded progs think they are going to bully Comey into dismissing the investigation when it entirely likely they will piss him off with all their whining and accusations of unfairness. If anything, Comey illegally refused to indict her even though he has ample evidence that she is guilty of several felony violations of the espionage act along with pay to play treason. They had no complaints when he was going along with the program. I hope they trip his wire so he goes ballistic on Hillary and Huma.

Comey didn't bend to pressure & look the other way last time, he just wnet along with the plan. He's as much of an insider as L Lynch, put there to serve a purpose. It looks like he he's bent t pressure this time, whatever that may be, & his regret will be having joined the cabal in the first place because it ends badly for him & his ilk either way.

This from theDailyBeast

"Huma Abedin Swore Under Oath She Gave Up ‘All the Devices’ With State Dept. Emails"


"The FBI found emails pertinent to its Clinton investigation, reportedly on a computer from her aide’s home. That doesn’t jibe with (what) she told lawyers this summer."
MarsInScorpio's picture

Is this fiction, or is it what will happen in the next few days as the Temple of Mammon falls upon them?

++++

Given the fact that the Statute of Limitations in some crimes committed by the Hillary Liberal Elitist Bigots are without end, Obama will end up pardoning all the Democrat criminals. Whether it occurs after the election, or before, now rests on what happens in the next few days with the newly discovered Huma emails on her husband's laptop.

If these are the missing emails, Obama will have no choice but to pardon everyone immediately, including himself. He has to move faster than the law enforcement officers seeking arrest warrants. They have been shamed, and now they need - because that is their pyschological makeup - to re-establish their credibility, and professional pride.

Please note Comey was insubordinate to Lynch by issuing the letter to congress in defiance of Lynch's "request" that he follow DOJ policy to not issue anything whatesoever so close to an election. He deliberately set himself up to be fired; cowards do that to avoid responsibility for the disasters they cause - in this case, the total destruction of any respect for the FBI.

So Lynch has no choice whatsoever but to re-establish her command and control of her FBI. He's history.

The way this is breaking is an excellent example of "History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme." What I am seeing is Nixon's "Saturday Night Massacre" writ in gigantic letters for our time.

There are differences in names, however, the principles are the same:

1) It's all about covering up massive crimnal activity.

2) Everybody connected to the president, and his heir apparent is prison-bound.

3) They all have one of three choices: A} Skip the country to one which will not extradite them; B} Duke it out in court; C} Obama pardons everyone. For Hillary, that means while they can still impeach her (if she won), she will never go to jail.

4) My sources in DC tell me that yesterday (Friday, Oct. 28, 2016) Hillary went nuclear hydrogen bomb out-of-control, either at, or about, Huma. Hillary said either, "I could kill her," or I'm going to kill her."

Huma knows way too much - as Hillary's lesbian lover she has been the garbage can where Hillary dumps all her trash. Sarcastically, I can say that, "nobody could see this coming." (Believers didn't know what, how, or when, but they do know "God will not be mocked.")

Huma is either D} In the hands of the Clintons, getting shipped out of the US to the MIddle East, or she is now shark chum; B} In an FBI Safe House; E} In Obama's hands, courtesy of the Moslem Brotherhood - so stay tuned if that is true; F} Huma is flying solo, because she knows any of those will kill her if that is expedient.

Back to the Pardon option, I expect it will be issued immediately, meaning within a week if things keep vaporizing all around them - even Hillary's Press Whore Corps is rethinking its own prostitution and what it means.

Either before, or after, expect to hear, and see, this possibility play out:

Obama will read from the TOTUS, "We need to put an end to this rancor and divisiveness. Let me be clear: All of those I've pardoned are true American heroes and heroines; their service to the country merits this action, and so I'm taking it today to put an end to these lies and insane conspiracy theories.

"However, the criminal actions of Donald Trump, and his cadre of fellow treasonous revolutionaries requires that I, as Chief Magistrate, move immediately to arrest this cabal of Russian agents, and refer this to the SECRET COURT, the secret US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which I, as a Constitutional scholar and law professor, am proud to inform you is modeled after the oldest example of this court found in our English legal heritage, the Star Chamber.

"There, you can count of justice swift, justice sure. These agents of Putin's intended to take-over, and take-away, your freedoms. Instead, they will be tried with the strictest adherence to the law; that means that just as its ancestor the Star Chamber acted unencumbered by public exhibition, so too does this secret US court.

"They will be secretly arrested, with a secret warrant, making secret charges, by secret officers, imprisoned in a secret jail, and undergo a secret trial, with secret rules of procedure, and secret rulings of constitutional law, kept secret by the secret government attorneys who will secretly prosecute and secretly act as their secret Public Defenders - since none of their private attorneys possess the level of secret clearance necessary to participate in the trial, where Trump and his outlaw, sexual predator gangsters, will be prohibited from attending their secret trial because they do not possess the secret clearances necessary to hear the secret laws, secret rulings, secret testimony, secret verdict, secret sentence, carried out at a secret prison, in a secret location, overseen by secret jailers, enforcing secret jail policies, for a secret amount of time as ordered by the secret court.

"Because of their criminal activities, I will also request the secret court to issue a secret Writ of Mandamus ordering the members of the Electoral College to cast their votes for Hillary Clinton.

"In addition, to ensure that no secret Congressional supporters of Trump's criminal organization decide to discuss this in the Well of the House or the Senate, where the Constitution protects them from arrest for what they say, I will also seek a secret court order of Quo Warranto as to their attending the sessions of the House or Senate. They can't step into the Well if they can't attend the sessions.

"They will be held secretly by secret officers of the secret court to ensure they are available for the secret court so that these secretly accused individuals can secretly appear before the secret court for their own secret hearing before the court, again understanding that they do not have the secret clearances necessary to actually attend the secret court's secret hearings, and therefore, they will be represented by secret Public Defenders working secretly for the government.

"How long this takes, and the schedule of the court's docket will be a secret, as will be all other information about the secretly accused congressional members. Because this is all covered by a secret Executive Order I secretly signed and secretly published for the information of a secret list of secret people who have a secret need to know criteria, you can trust me to adhere to the law, and carry out its every provision in secret."

"One other point to make you feel safe, and let you get back to the truly important things going on now in America - the race for Number One in College Football, letting men use the women's restroom, bringing segregation back to life with segregated housing and segregated areas on public university campuses, to name the top issues - let me remind you that no state or federal judge, including any Justice of the US Supreme Court - and that applies to the Chief Justice as well, has all the secret clearances necessary to see everything that happens in the secret US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

"They can't see the secret testimony, the secret arguments about the law in front of the court, the secret rulings by the court, including their secret rulings on constitutional law. Nobody, at any level of our judicial system, can see what the secret court does.

"And even if they could, it wouldn't matter, because any ruling they make on any secret ruling of the secret court will have to remain a secret. This is already happening; this is not new, or just a theory - the Department of Justice now sits on dozens of secret laws, and secret rulings of constitutional law, and the court's secret verdicts, secret court orders - everything they do is secret! How can you appeal a secret court's ruling if you can't know what the law, or the ruling of the court, or the secret law or constitutional interpretation the secret court is secretly acting under is . . . ?

"You can't! Because it's secret! It's all secret! The secrets are secret! The secrets about the secrets are secret! It's Alice in Wonderland talking to the Cheshire Cat - everything the secret court does, just disappears!

"Ha, ha, ha, ha . . . A secret Star Chamber is what it is. Ha, ha, ha, ha . . . This is all just such a hoot. It's completely insane! A secret court called legal under a constitution that guarantees public trials! Ha, ha, ha, ha  . . . Oh, I just can't stop laughing! Talk about the Theater of Insanity ruling the country . 

"OK, I'll come down from this unbridled mania. But you have to admit, to think that every judge out there is so sold-out, so interested in jacking up the system, such life-time appointed lunatics - tell the world that the most obvious, twisted-up mental gymnastics pretending to be rational, complete and total violation of the constitution passes constitutional muster . . . It's true: The psychotic sociopathic insane inmates are running the asylum.

"Excuse me for laughing . . . OK, I'm done. I promise to be good.

"But it's no secret that the secret court can do anything it wants to do . . . Because everything it does . . . Is secret!

"That means these criminals will have no appeal process that means anything, since anything the government deems too secret for a federal district court, or appeals court, or the US Supreme Court to see, will be withheld from them - all of them! It's secret! The US Supreme Court is just an impotent group of mental maturbators, prissy frauds - how can anyone justify a secret court in a legal system whose constitutional gurantees open courts!

"So don't you folks worry about this again, in fact, I'm declaring tonight's speech a secret, so if you don't want to go to jail for violating the secret laws of the secret court - never say a word, or show a video of this speech, or circulate a transcript, or do anything else that lets anyone know about these secrets I secretly discussed with you.

"You didn't know I could do that, did you? Yeah, it's been my little secret. But now you know, so if you say even one syllable of this to anyone, you'll go to a secret jail in the middle of the night! You'll never be seen again - and it's all secretly legal!

"Oh, and by the way, that includes my favorite prostitutes: the main stream media. How many times did I tell you to your face that you belong to me? So now the Piper is goping to get pasid. Hope you enjoyed pretending you were part of the club! You aren't, you never were, and you never will be members. You're just whores - and after you've rendered your services, you get thrown out into the street. We don't have, and never will have, any respect for whores.

"Just relax, keep your mouth shut, don't show up at any protests against the political establishment - just do your job, give us your money, let us tell you how to live your life, and you'll get to stay inside your hovel - uh, I mean home - keep taking meds, and everything will just be peachy.

"What happens will be the government's little secret. And you know that you can trust the government to follow the law, arrest those who break it, and use this occasion to let everyone know - once and forever - that anything we do is a secret.

"Keep your mouth shut, or the next sound you hear will be the jail door shutting behind you.

"Good night, and Allah Akbar!"

+++++++++++++++

 Anybody here stupid enough to believe it can't happen . . . secretly?

I've wondered why the Obamas have gone out of their way to support her, both on the public and with the DOJ letting her slide. It's common knowledge they hate each other. Everyone voices the concerns Obama has about 'preserving his legacy' but I think there's more to it than that. I think that of Clinton goes down, she destroys Obama with her, and probably has the dirt to do so.

Funny watching the left flip out. You fuckers insisted on Clinton, with all her KNOWN, AT THE BEGINNING, corruption and scandals, and then get surprised and angry when her criminal wrong doing isn't given a free pass. Fuck off, dean and the rest, and most of the Republican Party. I am stil not an enthusiastic trump supporter, but I hope he destroys every last one of these people.

If Clinton could have "destroyed" Obama, she (they) would absolutley have done so in 2008.  On the other hand, I think Obama has something on Clinton to make her do his bidding once he's out of office.

Obama has figured the crook would be elected and he'd be a close adviser of some sort. That's why he got a house not far from the wh instead of moving back to his"home state" like every other president has done for the past several decades. He figured on being a Big Wig Parasite forever working in some capacity in DC during Hillary's Reign of Terror.

If you read Ed Klein's latest book, Guilty As Sin, he lays it out pretty clearly why he is supporting Hillary. You might be on to something, but apparently Obama couldn't get any other credible democrat to run so he had no choice. It seems that Obama hates Trump more than the Clintons. I think Hillary will have an "accident" before she gerts a chance to take anyone with her.
