James Comey may have been the Democrats’ hero in July, but he’s the enemy now. The Democrats are preparing to go, at least metaphorically, Fort Marcy Park on him. Why? In addition to notifying Congress of potential new emails under investigation, the FBI has been looking into the Clinton Foundation as well.
What is most notable is that the political appointees in the Justice Department and FBI have been trying to stymie the career FBI agents. The career FBI agents have pushed back and continued their investigation. Now the Democrats are left in the intellectually dishonest position of attacking James Comey only a few months after praising his professionalism. They will not let honesty stand in the way of protecting their precious.
Another interesting aspect of this investigation is that the Loretta Lynch Justice Department has actively worked to block the FBI probe.
Anticorruption prosecutors at the Justice Department told the FBI at the meeting they wouldn’t authorize more aggressive investigative techniques, such as subpoenas, formal witness interviews, or grand-jury activity. But the FBI officials believed they were well within their authority to pursue the leads and methods already under way, these people said.
For all the talk Democrats give about Donald Trump undermining the election with his rhetoric, the Democrats are doing the same thing now. They’re not claiming Comey is trying to throw the election. They’re now claiming the process is rigged. They are now undermining the republic by turning the search for truth and justice into a partisan witch hunt.
