All About James Comey

Erik Tate | 10 June, 2017, 17:39

Comey answered that the Clinton email investigation was a completed, closed investigation at the time he announced that "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring a case against her last July, while the Russian Federation investigation is still under way and could be for some time.

The Arizona baseball team tweeted the statement out with a stick figure putting its hands up as if to say: "Sorry we're not sorry, Senator".

Lynch, as the head of the Justice Department, clandestinely met with Bill Clinton in late June 2016 on an airport tarmac.

Comey said there were other reasons he chose to speak publicly as well. One significant item I can't, I know the committee's been briefed on. We were getting to a place where the attorney general and I were both going to have to testify and talk publicly about.

"That investigation was going on".

And continued under questioning by Sen.

The president claims he wasn't demanding that Comey stop the investigation, but Comey disagreed.

"If there are tapes", Comey said, "it's not just my word against his".

Former FBI Director James Comey said he made a decision to speak publicly about the probe of Hillary Clinton's email after concluding that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch had the appearance of a conflict of interest.

"I thought that was irrelevant in the hearing yesterday", Kaine said. I didn't believe she could credibly decline that investigation - at least, not without grievous damage to the Department of Justice and to the FBI.

COMEY: Yes, certainly a possible step.

Finding that out, as Comey noted, is now up to the special counsel, Robert Mueller.

CORNYN: ... did on multiple occasions.

In his testimony Thursday, Comey said the Trump administration quickly sought other explanations for the firing and in doing so "defamed" him by saying the bureau under his leadership was out of control and suffering from low morale.

Comey said he was driven to act as he did to "protect the credibility of the investigation".

"We have to be concerned with foreign intelligence services that are launching cyberattacks at us", he said, adding that "while we are looking back at this investigation of what happened during the election, Russian Federation is planning their next attack and the next one after that". I know this is a subject of passionate disagreement, but I knew there was no case there. "Calling for the appointment of a special counsel would be brutally unfair".

I think Comey is right here.

Tables were turned on Democrats just weeks before the USA election, however, when Comey, again acting on his own, briefly reopened the probe - a decision Clinton believes cost her the vote.
