Comey Claims He Didn’t Trust Lynch To Not Cover For Clinton – So He Let Her Off

james comey


FBI Director Comey is pointing the finger of blame and distrust at his superior in DOJ, former Attorney General Loretta “tarmac” Lynch.  He’s describing how he was the good cop, taking the burden upon himself of single-handedly, making sure that the truth came out about Hillary Clinton. He may have done that in his strange and baffling press conference of July 5th when he announced Clinton was officially off the hook, but nothing came of it from prosecutorial standpoint. Basically all he did was confirm that she was a crook, and announce that once again she was getting away with her crimes.

He told the New York Times that, Lynch wasn’t the only one he didn’t trust not to provide cover for Hillary Clinton. He says he also didn’t trust senior officials at the Justice Department. It’s almost humorous but Comey claims he feared Lynch and her subordinates would do exactly what he and she accomplished in combination, provide her cover. It’s difficult to imagine how any greater level of insulation from prosecution could have been provided by Lynch or anyone else than what she received from Comey and Lynch.

Unless Attorney General Sessions has something in the works, the worst incident of domestic spying, racketeering, corruption and profiteering in American history was accomplished by a Secretary of State and her subordinates in full view of Congress, the entire federal government, and ultimately the executive branch of the successor administration of the other party, without any repercussions, not a glove being laid on her. And we have the nerve to laugh at banana republics?

Even use of the word “investigation” was prohibited at one point in discussing what he was told by Lynch to refer to as a “matter.” Lynch, he says, believed that use of the word “investigation” would lead to other questions that Lynch didn’t want to have to answer. He says it was she who also required adherence to the department policy of not confirming investigations.

He claims that alarm bells went off when the DOJ clarified that a referral to the FBI questioning whether classified information had been improperly handled by Clinton through her use of a bootleg server, was not a criminal referral. Of course we all believe Lynch, Obama and the rest of the executive branch were, at a minimum, covering for Clinton’s criminal activity and probably their own as well.

That doesn’t mean that Comey was the one, lone angel that somehow, inexplicably, got stuck in Alcatraz with the real criminals. Alcatraz might be exactly where he belongs. Nobody’s hands in this farce are clean and Comey’s little attempt to improve his image is an obvious and failed PR stunt.

We’re in trouble as a nation. Our government has been seriously compromised. President Trump needs to demand an investigation by AG Sessions into the whole stinking mess or his credibility and trustworthiness will suffer as well. That was a promise we want to see him keep. He needs to keep it.

10 Comments on Comey Claims He Didn’t Trust Lynch To Not Cover For Clinton – So He Let Her Off

  1. I totally agree. President Trump needs to follow through with promises made to we voters, are we lose his trust. I am really pulling for him….

  2. This admission may have improved Comey’s ‘image’ in the eyes of the image makers, but it doesn’t improve his character in the eyes of the people.

  3. Prosecutions were never pressed against so many of the inherently underhanded and in many cases, corrupt persons in the Obama administration, starting with Eric Holder, Lois Lerner, and especially Hillary Clinton. Shielded by both the “mainstream media” and Barack Obama, the primary victim was “the rule of law.”

    “It is not possible to have the rule of law unless those charged with executing the laws are held accountable when they are derelict. And it is not possible to have accountability when the processes for discovering derelictions do not work. Those processes have to be mended. It is beyond time to reinvigorate the principle that law enforcement’s first priority is to do justice. Not only must government officials follow the rules; their adherence must be monitored — not to harass the law-abiding but to root out the corrupt. Examples must be made of those who abuse their powers. It is not sufficient that the system achieves justice most of the time. The rule of law depends on our belief that it aspires to justice all of the time.” — Andrew C. McCarthy, “Unless we find and punish official corruption, there can be no rule of law.” National Review, 4/22/17 — Read more at:

  4. I do not trust Comey. If he is so clean in the Clinton case then why did he let her off. He is just probably trying to get himself out out of trouble. Perhaps because his brother Peter works for the Clintons.

    James Comey is a CROOK. Soooo, why is Donald Trump not FIRING him and having him tried in a court of law ? Why is Trump not appointing an honest, dedicated FBI director ? What is really going on ?

  9. Indeed, Rick Indeed. On all counts. And ‘counts’ they are: legally actionable counts.
