This is a follow-up to Friday’s post entitled, “Comey Has ‘Repeatedly and Improperly Protected Clinton and Her Top People From Consequences of Criminal Behavior.’”
Between considering the information presented in John Hayward’s article and Hillary’s complaining to the nation how she was robbed of the presidency, I decided to give some more consideration to how much of Hillary’s defeat could be blamed on Comey.
Like many of you, I confess to being a political junkie. I was well on my way to “junkiehood” before Barack Obama came along, but that was what pushed me over the edge and I began to blog about politics. Since then, I’ve always done research on whatever I was writing about and, as a byproduct, became fairly knowledgeable about Hillary Clinton.
It almost goes without saying that in my opinion, Hillary shouldn’t ever be allowed within the same zip code as the White House, much less be given the reins of government. She’s a liar, a crook, a criminal of the worst kind, and very likely a co-conspirator in murders and traitorous actions. And Bill is only marginally better in that he’s a better actor and politician and is much more convincing while lying through his teeth.
At the same time, everything I’ve read about James Comey has been good. He was appointed by Barack Obama and confirmed by the Senate in 2013 by a 93-1 vote and was lauded by both sides of the aisle as being honest.
So, I wondered what went awry between a supposedly honest and diligent FBI Director and a woman who had (pretty obviously) committed a number of illegal acts while Secretary of State?
Why didn’t he prosecute her or recommend prosecution?
I believe that it all boiled down to the “accidental” meeting between the ex-president and Hillary’s hubby Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch, the serving Attorney General at the time.
According to Edward Klein’s new book, “Guilty As Sin,” here’s what happened:
Bill Clinton’s private jet had been cleared for takeoff and was taxiing toward the active runway at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport when a Secret Service agent informed him that Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s plane was coming in for a landing.
“Don’t take off!” Bill barked.
As his plane skidded to a halt and then headed back to its parking space, Bill grabbed a phone and called an old friend — one of his most trusted legal advisers.
It was June 27, 2016 — one year into the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails.
“Bill said, ‘I want to bushwhack Loretta,’ ” the adviser recalled. “ ‘I’m going to board her plane. What do you think?’ And I said, ‘There’s no downside for you, but she’s going to take a pounding if she’s crazy enough to let you on her plane.’
The intimidation worked, she let him get on her plane.
It’s not known what the two talked about – they’ve said it was all small talk about golf and grandchildren – and if you believe that, I’ve got some oceanfront property in downtown Dallas I’ll let you have cheap.
So, could have the mere presence of ex-president Clinton been enough to intimidate AG Lynch to assure that no indictment would be forthcoming – regardless of what the FBI had found?
Maybe, maybe she was so scared s**tless that she guaranteed that nothing would come of the FBI investigation. Either that, or the Clinton Crime Family made her an offer that she couldn’t refuse?
In any case, Lynch apparently communicated the futility of bringing charges against Hillary in such a way that Comey backed off.
What would make him, supposedly an honest and conscientious public servant; quash what has been described as “ample evidence” that Hillary was “guilty as sin”?
Knowing what we now know about Barack Obama’s nefarious activities while in the White House and the fact that any indictment of Hillary would also necessitate exposing his communications with her over Hillary’s illicit server and subject him to scrutiny as well, I posit that Comey was either blackmailed with exposure of things that he didn’t want known or he was threatened with ending his career or perhaps even violence to him and his family. I wouldn’t put it past this lot.
My point is that I don’t think that he would have backed off voluntarily.
Obviously, I could be wrong, but I’ll bet that I’m closer to the truth than the bovine excrement that has been fed to the public.
But we shouldn’t worry; we can feel safe and secure that “no one is above the law,” and “we are a nation of laws,” and “Lady Liberty is blind,” right?
