Former FBI Director James Comey’s unilateral decision to give a public monologue about Hillary Clinton’s emails last summer was highly unorthodox, wildly inappropriate, and a big part of the reason Russian puppet Donald Trump is now sitting in the Oval Office. As it turns out, Comey’s decision to publicly lash out at Clinton over her emails was also based at least partly on a Russian document that has since been revealed as a fake.
That’s the stunning word from the Washington Post, which is confirming this evening that James Comey made his decision to public about the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails to the public because he’d seen intel that Attorney General Loretta Lynch was colluding with the Clinton campaign to hamper the investigation (source: Washington Post). But that document is now viewed by the FBI as being somewhere between “unreliable” and “fake.”
In other words, the supposed collusion between Lynch and the Clinton campaign never happened, and thus Comey’s entire prolonged public tongue lashing of Hillary Clinton over her emails was motivated by a Russian hoax. This raises even more severe questions about the inappropriateness of his election meddling, which began with his anti-Clinton sermon in July and peaked with the misleading letter he sent to Congress just nine days before the election, which falsely implied that Clinton was being newly investigated when she was not.
This further underscores four points which have already been fairly well established: 1) James Comey rigged the 2016 election in Donald Trump’s favor, whether through naivete or incompetence or megalomania. 2) Trump is a puppet who was illegitimately installed in the White House by the Russian government, an act of war against the United States. 3) The 2016 election results were illegitimate by any measure. 4) By all rights, Hillary Clinton should be the President of the United States.
