To hear Liberals and their Journalist lapdogs tell it, Comey’s firing was the end of Democracy. But agents who work there tell a different story.
He was the Left’s favorite scapegoat from the time they realized the election was slipping away.
Even Hillary’s Blame-shifting ‘take responsibility’ tour touted his name, along with Wikileaks, Russians and misogyny in the varied explanations for how she — Hillary Clinton — could possibly have lost.
They called for his head. Until Trump fired him.
And, because they’re desperate for something to ‘stick’ on Trump suddenly Comey’s a Martyr for The Cause.
That’s what passes for ‘objective journalism’ these days.
So Comey is a Saint whose departure should be loudly lamented. Is that the new narrative?
Looks like nobody told the FBI. Because they’re singing a very different tune.
They’re ‘alarmed’ by the decision not to prosecute Hillary. And some of his decisions about the issue have raised eyebrows.
According to an interview transcript given to The Daily Caller, provided by an intermediary who spoke to two federal agents with the bureau last Friday, agents are frustrated by Comey’s leadership.
“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have convened but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”
The agent was also surprised that the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation.
“We didn’t search their house. We always search the house. The search should not just have been for private electronics, which contained classified material, but even for printouts of such material,” he said.
“There should have been a complete search of their residence,” the agent pointed out. “That the FBI did not seize devices is unbelievable. The FBI even seizes devices that have been set on fire.”
You’d think Hillary would be a little less vitriolic if he’s gone to such lengths to save her bacon. But gratitude and humility aren’t exactly Clintonian traits.
“Comey was never an investigator or special agent. The special agents are trained investigators and they are insulted that Comey included them in ‘collective we’ statements in his testimony to imply that the SAs agreed that there was nothing there to prosecute,” the second agent said. “All the trained investigators agree that there is a lot to prosecuted but he stood in the way.”
He added, “The idea that [the Clinton/e-mail case] didn’t go to a grand jury is ridiculous.” —DailyCaller
It seems Hillary’s investigation was handled by a different set of rules than anyone else’s.
Depending on which version of events you believe, Comey was one of three things.
Inept. Corrupt. Or Heroicly doing the right thing in a hard situation.
