Obama Destroys Clinton/Reid Narrative "Does Not Believe Comey Trying To Influence Election"

Tyler Durden's picture

With both Harry Reid and Hillary Clinton voicing extreme accusations of violating federal law against FBI Director Comey's decision to be transparent about his investigation into Clinton's emails, it appears President Obama is having none of it. As White House spokesman Josh Earnest stated: "President Obama doesn't think Comey is trying to influence the election."

Senate minority leader Harry Reid claiming Comey may have violated federal law...

“I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act,” Reid wrote in a letter to Comey, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The Hatch act prohibits government officials from using their positions to influence an election.

“Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”


“When Republicans filibustered your nomination and delayed your confirmation longer than any previous nominee to your position, I led the fight to get you confirmed because I believed you to be a principled public servant,” Reid wrote.


“With the deepest regret, I now see that I was wrong."

But, President Obama has now crushed that narrative:

John Earnest explains:

"President Obama doesn't think Comey tried to influence the election."


"Obama still believes Comey has "good character""


"Obama has a lot of confidence in AG Loretta Lynch"

Which, roughly translated into images is this...


Furthermore, as we noted last night, Harry Reid had suggested that " talked w/ top NatSec officials who say that Comey “possesses explosive information” about Trump’s ties to Russia."

That has also been completely rebuffed as The White House says it "has not been briefed on the existence of any FBI investigation on activities, habts of Donald Trump."

So more lies?!

Boom! And with one comment, the Democratic narrative is confused and in turmoil and so is Hillary's campaign.

All of those weasels need to be held to account. Trump 2016

I guess he's hoping Comey doesn't come after his ass next year.

Obama may not be looking at impeachment at this late stage but he sure is looking at jail time by lying repeatedly to the American people and others as his emails show.

MANvsMACHINE's picture

Hasn't Obama endorsed Hillary?  Doesn't that constitute a breach of the Hatch Act?

Does this mean they have entered into the "least advantageous" part of the Prisoners' Dilemma?

So when's the last time you heard of a good Southern Baptist fire and brimstone mammy praying to God via Twitter or Facebook?
I didn't think so either.
Praying to the God Mammon for Relief from One's Own Sins.
Via Social Media.
Not a solid plan.
Ranks right up there with transmitting sensitive information on the web.

And these are the people wanna be responsible for Your Internet Security.

What a 2nd mega screw for $hillary'ous ... was she played the whole season by King O'Bozo the 1st just so he can justify with the constitution on his side the 3rd term?

Now that would be brilliant and expected from a master of constitutional law

So using the Dirty Noxious Criminals party mouthpiece Harry Ried's contorted logic.

I heard Harry looks like a pedophile, talks like a pedophile and acts like a pedophile.  Therefore Harry is a pedophile. This must be fact, not just an opinion.

My money is on Hillary. No way can she chew through that cankle before Obama gets through that one bite toothpick.

Notice Hills is biting her calf instead of her Cankle. Makes sense. Probobly a path of less resistance.

Do bare in mind, ladies and gentleman, that John Podesta was councillor to Obama and is Hillary's bag man.

39k emails released and no direct convos between Obama-Podesta and Hillary-Podesta thus far? Not even a ménages à trois?

Does this not whet the appetitie for phase 3?

Everyone knows that Harry Reid is as big of a liar and Crook as Hillary.

Remember when he said he had information that Romney didn't pay taxes just before the election that turned out to be a lie?

And how about the land in Nevada that he bought then voted to put a hiway through or close to it skyrocking its value.

Harry Reid should be in the cell right next to Clinton at Levenworth.

Hmm, I thought that was the "Daddy should of shot that load on the bed Act".

Best part of Harry dribbled down his mother's leg.

rather than envision such a revolting thought as the one that should have had his nads whacked for fouling the planet,  my thought ran more in line to:

snakes that give live birth.

Did Harry Reid just admit the FBI keeps secret files on political candidates ?

He knows the ship is sinking, so he is trying to save his "legacy", whatever that is.

Bastiat's picture

His legacy:  destroyed Ukraine, Libya and Syria, causing migration that is destroying Europe, then lost the middle east to Russia, brought us to the brink of nuclear war;  lost the South Pacific; exacerbated race relations; forced China and Russia into close partnership, trashed healthcare; doubled the debt.

This is Obama's Legacy:


Maybe he thinks that if Hillary gets nailed he can spin the whole thing around and pin it on the Clintons.
