On June 8th, 2017, former FBI Director James Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee about his firing from the FBI, the Russian investigation, included the Michael Flynn investigation and the Clinton e-mail investigation. And while there’s plenty of things to talk about within each subject, today I want to point out the hypocrisy of the Left. Specifically Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch directing the then-FBI director to call Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal a “matter” not an “investigation.”
Oh, yes. While the Left is calling foul play on Trump supposedly asking Comey to “drop the Michael Flynn issue” and saying that it’s obstruction of justice, then-AG Loretta Lynch not only suggested that Comey called the e-mail probe a “matter” rather than an investigation, she actually asked and directed him to do that, according to Comey.
If you remember, Loretta Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton on June, 2016. According to Comey, this meeting made him feel rather uncomfortable. He also said that the meeting between Lynch and the former president “convinced him that the independence of the investigation was tainted with regard to the Justice Department and led him to go public with the bureau’s findings on Clinton”, according to Circa.com.
Well, of course that meeting made him uncomfortable and distrustful of the DOJ! If the Attorney General meets in private with the spouse of one of the people the FBI is investigating, red flags are going to fly! Particularly when that same AG also asks the FBI director to call one of the FBI’s investigations a “matter” and not an actual “investigation”! Loretta Lynch asking the FBI director to do that is CLEAR OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE! Largely because it tries to diminish the importance of the e-mail scandal.
Now, don’t misunderstand, I still don’t really trust in many things Comey says. The official FBI statement on the Clinton e-mails made by Comey reads: “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before bringing charges. There are obvious considerations, like the strength of the evidence, especially regarding intent…”
In other words, since Comey couldn’t find any ill-intent in the way Hillary Clinton handled classified information, she gets a free pass. That’s precisely why I don’t trust Comey fully. He let Hillary off the hook because he doesn’t think she meant to mishandle classified information. This is a system that punishes people’s actions, not intentions. Unless you’re a big time Democrat, that is.
A murderer would never be let off the hook if he said “I didn’t mean to”. But Hillary Clinton IS let off the hook because Comey didn’t think she meant to mishandle classified info.
But here’s the reason why I choose to trust Comey on this instance: because he has no reason to mention that Loretta Lynch “directed” him to call the e-mail probe a “matter” rather than an “investigation”. Sen. Richard Burr had asked Comey “Was your decision (regarding Comey’s public statement on the e-mail investigation) influenced by the Attorney General’s tarmac meeting with the former President Bill Clinton?” That was the question Comey was asked. And yet, Comey CHOSE to mention Lynch’s order to call the probe a “matter”.
Comey essentially threw Lynch under the bus (even though the MSM will never focus on that part) by saying she directed him to refer to the investigation as a “matter”. The Left typically sticks up for its people unless it’s clear that they need to abandon one of their own. Comey, being part of the Left in this case, didn’t have a reason to throw Lynch under the bus, since he wasn’t directly asked if Lynch did what she did.
So that’s why I believe Comey when he said that, besides the fact that it definitely sounds like something Loretta Lynch would order to someone involved in the Clinton investigation. Which leads me - and likely many others - to believe that Lynch obstructed justice in the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton. Which leads me to call out the Left for what hypocrites they are.
To them, Trump allegedly asking Comey to drop the Flynn matter was obstruction of justice in the Russian investigation, but Lynch directing Comey to call the probe not an investigation is just fine. They think it’s ok for Lynch to tell the FBI director to call it a “matter” in order to reduce the negative effect it would have on Clinton’s campaign and in order to make the e-mail scandal not seem like such a big deal.
Now, I know that neither the FBI nor the DOJ nor the MSM will go after Lynch for this. But I know that this kind of thing (corruption) doesn’t get ignored by God. God knows what is in Lynch’s heart. He knows what was in her mind when she met with Bill Clinton. And He heard the things they discussed in that meeting. He also knows what Lynch’s, Bill’s, and Hillary’s intentions have been regarding the whole matter. And while they might not face punishment here on Earth, they will eventually have to meet their Creator. And they can’t bribe or blackmail the Lord.
