Cruz Nails Comey Obstruction On Lerner, Abedin, Clinton – Runs FBI Same Under Sessions

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) questioned FBI Director James Comey on Thursday, May 4th, 2017, almost three years after he similarly asked the obstructionist running interference at the FBI some of the same questions and was likewise stonewalled, particularly on the matter of the IRS targeting conservatives. The telling of a new lie regarding that cover up he directed closed out Comey’s Thursday farce, but there’s much more deception to be had along the way.

One of those inconsistent statements made by Comey is the subject of the first question Senator Cruz puts to the FBI Director, telling him it’s puzzling “in that you described the reason why the case was closed against Ms Abedin as that you could not determine she was aware her conduct was unlawful. And the reason that answer is puzzling is, you’re a very accomplished lawyer, and, as you’re well aware, every first year law student learns in criminal law that ignorance of the law is no excuse and that mens rea does not require knowledge that conduct is unlawful.” He goes on to point out that there is no such requirement in the statutes.

Senator Cruz says, “If I understand you correctly you said Ms Abedin forwarded hundreds or thousands of classified emails to her husband on a non-government, non-classified computer. How does that conduct not directly violate that statute?”

Comey goes on to say that “for generations” the DOJ has applied the statute as if there is a requirement of intent, even though one is not specifically required in the language of the statute. They make up their own law, in essence. Cruz asks what Comey would do if one of his agents did what Huma Abedin did. He replies that there would be significant discipline but that he was highly confident there would be no criminal prosecution. Particularly if it was a Democrat and it was a minor offense like espionage, eh Comey? Based upon the way this government lets their own criminals off the hook, everyone should be highly confident such a perpetrator would skate.

After first laying a foundation of the conduct under the Obama administration, and the ordering of a purge of over 800 records at DHS to remove references to radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood, Cruz notes there is a new administration now and asks, “Has the approach of the FBI to radical Islamic terrorism changed in any respect with a new administration?”

Comey replies, “Not that I’m aware of, no,” a response which should be a red flag for any American patriot, given the pro-terrorist stance of the previous administration supported by the foundation laid in his question. Cruz cites a particular incident in Garland, Texas,  laying out a lengthy explanation of a series of events which Comey handles in typical fashion, declaring them to be inaccurate, that he can’t say in what way they’re inaccurate, but he’ll provide the information at a later date.

Cruz next asks him about the supposed investigation into IRS targeting of conservatives, an issue he’s been pursuing with Comey for years. He says, “This committee has had substantial focus also on the practice of the previous IRS of targeting citizens and citizen groups based on their political speech, political views and perceived political opposition to ‘president’ Obama. And the previous Department of Justice, both Attorneys General Holder and Lynch, in my view stonewalled that investigation. Is the FBI currently investigating the IRS’ unlawful targeting of citizens for exercising political speech?”

Comey revealed more of the FBI’s contribution to that stonewalling process, stating, “We completed that investigation and the Department declined prosecution, we worked very hard on it, put a lot of people on it, couldn’t make what we thought was a case and to my knowledge it has not been reopened.” Senator Cruz asks for clarification, saying, “So did the FBI recommend prosecution, you said you couldn’t make the case?”

Director Comey fell back on the same argument he used for letting Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton skip out on their crimes, that he couldn’t prove intent. Despite the overwhelming evidence and the vast number of delayed applications being those of conservatives as well as the conspiracy revealed in the emails, Comey claims he couldn’t prove intent.

It appears that Director Comey doesn’t really want to prove anything; that his job is to obstruct, insulate and protect crooked politicians and their operatives. He doesn’t have to be believable, just slippery. Obviously nobody’s going to fire him.

6 Comments on Cruz Nails Comey Obstruction On Lerner, Abedin, Clinton – Runs FBI Same Under Sessions

  1. I trust my God and my President and I trust that HE is working in and through him…We are told to pray for the leaders of our Nation…I must admit, the only prayer I ever prayed for the previous liar in chief and all his evil minions, was that the Lord cast the demons from our midst…unfortunately, he and they are still there, still in the background, weaving their web of deceit against our beloved President and the American People and our way of life…we must pray for President Trump every day, no ordinary man can withstand what he is up against without the supernatural strength and protection from our Lord…

    Dear Lord, thank You, that You are still on the Throne and that prayer can still change things…I thank You for answered prayer and for appointing  Donald J. Trump as the leader of Your people and this great nation… Thank You, Father, that We the People came out in droves and elected Donald J. Trump by a landslide, regardless of what their lying, crooked popular vote says. There are those who would contest our votes, contest the Will of Your People…We will not allow them to steal our future. You unclean, globalist, satanic, baby killers  and your evil cohorts won’t be feathering your nests at our expense any more!…America has spoken loud and clear…CAN YOU HEAR US NOW???

    There will be no perfect leader until Jesus returns, we know that. Until then, true Christians and true patriotic Americans are grateful to you, Father, for giving us a brave and strong leader in our new President. I have never been more grateful and more humbled in my life…I have never voted before, I have never cared before, but I promise I will never fail to exercise that God given right again…I want to say thank You, Jesus, for hearing our cries and for helping us avoid the greatest tragedy this nation has ever faced, and that is the loss of our sovereignty and being handed over to the New World Order Global Government, and we know that is the antichrist beast system….I am so proud of my fellow Americans for seeing through the lies and doing the right thing, and that is turning to You, Lord…thank You, Father, for moving the hearts of the people toward You and toward truth and good.

    Good is making an open show of evil, but, we must and we will be vigilant, for we know it is not against flesh and blood that we fight, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. We also fight against an ignorant, intentionally dumbed down world that has left so many “unaware and compliant” and easily manipulated.

    We thank you, Father, that we will be able to stand in that Day, having done all to stand…We realize the danger has not passed and satan knows he has but a short time and he is lashing out in every direction and on every front…We must all pray that minds and hearts continue to open to Jesus…Four, even eight years roll around real fast…They almost caught us unaware this time; we will watch, we won’ t let that happen again; we will not become complacent and go back to sleep. We hold our new leader, President Donald J. Trump, up to You and ask for Your Divine and Supernatural protection over him and his family at all times, particularly now, when those that seek to harm him and our nation are so desperate…the criminals are being cornered like rats; they will lash out violently and desperately.

    Lord, You said You would confound the plans of the wicked and lay the crooked path straight…and, Lord, for those who disparage our President because they say You would never appoint such a person, to them I say read the Word of God…time after time, the Lord has used imperfect men to achieve His end…Moses, Paul and David were all murderers…Paul murdered hundreds if not thousands of Christians, yet the Lord used them in mighty ways…or, consider Cyrus, he was a pagan Persian King who God used to release the Israelites out of Babylonian captivity and even helped them to rebuild Jerusalem and the temple. …right now, our country needs a Chief Executive Officer and a born leader, not a Pastor…we have enough of those and most are evil wolves in sheep’s clothing… to these naysayers, these Pharisees, I say, put your stones back in your pocket…I thank You for this and in all things. Vengeance is Yours, Father, and soon, the wicked that mock You and our President and seek to destroy him and our American way of life, shall have their reward… in Jesus’ Sweet Name I pray…Amen.

    Even so, come quickly, Lord Jesus…I had a wide awake, open vision of the Lord’s return in 1976 when I was 13 years old. This July was 40 years since that date… Thank you for taking time to view and share…the hour is late, the harvest is great, but the laborers are few…Maranatha!…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dt–TNZzsxc&list=LLtysruP3VK3vCcmWldmrz6g&index=6

    FBI Director James Comey is a Puppet of George Soros! I rest this case!

  3. You’ve nailed it perfectly, Rick. Comey is proving to be a “bad guy”. He needs to get into the “EXIT” line, headed to confinement for a long time. Where are Trump and Sessions?

  4. If this is the case, what Comey is saying, has the FBI jailed anyone since Comey has been in charge?? Hell, Martha Stewart lied one time and got 18 months in prison. Hillary Clinton lied 39 times to the FBI and was allowed to keep running for the presidency of the United States of America! I think I have this right… Martha Stewart is not allowed to lie to the FBI BUT Hillary Clinton has the ok to lie. Martha was insider trading and Hillary Clinton was National Security?! Hmmmm…. How long has Comey been allowed to run the FBI like this??? There is a proverbial rat in the woodpile here, in my humble opinion… Find the bad guys. Prove the bad guys guilty or innocent, then act accordingly. Clinton should have been jailed for the times she lied to the FBI. Stop the smoke screens and become consistent. The quality of work done in the FBI has nose dived dramatically over these short years…

  5. It seems all we ever get from hearings are questions showing how what the crooks did was untort, “I’m appalled”, and “thank you”, next.
