On October 28, FBI Director Comey announced in a letter to Congress that he was reopening the investigation into the Hillary Clinton email case. And from the moment we were alerted shortly after 1pm that day, my first thought and comments were that the reopening of the case didn’t pass my smell test.
As of November 6, it can be argued that I was proven right. Comey in a letter to Congress announced: “Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.” In other words nothing in the 650,000 emails discovered on Huma Abedin’s estranged husband, Anthony Weiner’s computer, convinced the FBI, i.e., Comey, that Clinton had acted in a way worthy of prosecution.
Nothing happens in Washington, D.C. by accident. At the time Comey announced his reopening of the email case I offered three possibilities pursuant to why the so-called investigation was reopened. I said they were: 1) The reopening was nothing more than a veiled attempt to further exonerate Clinton; 2) The reopening was an attempt by Clinton and her minions to get out in front of whatever they either knew or suspected Julian Assange and WikilLeaks were going to release in the days just prior to the election; 3) The reopening was a clandestine attempt to undermine the presidential election.
I also hypothesized that it wasn’t out of the realm of possibility that Erebusic marplots and the Clinton minions would use Comey’s reopening of the investigation to claim that he knowingly released information that led to the undermining of the election process. They would then orchestrate a way to subvert the will of the people under the guise of doing what is in the interest of the American people.
It can now be argued that the first of my possibilities was closest to the truth. Followed closely by the second reason I offered.
I am convinced that Clinton knew ahead of time the case was going to be reopened. I also remind those who having been listening to the pundits fawning over Comey and calling him a man of integrity his entire career, until he as many believe, conspired to not indict Clinton last July, that he is a man of highly questionable integrity at best. The word “integrity” has a different meaning to those inside the Beltway and in the mainstream media than it does to you and I.
Comey and Obama
It should be noted that Comey was the Deputy Special Counsel to the Senate Whitewater Committee when Bill Clinton was president. Comey reached conclusions that sound eerily familiar. Comey found that: Hillary Clinton was personally involved in mishandling documents and had ordered others to block investigators as they pursued their case. Worse, her behavior fit into a pattern of concealment: she and her husband had tried to hide their roles in two other matters under investigation by law enforcement. Taken together, the interference by White House officials, which included destruction of documents, amounted to “far more than just aggressive lawyering or political naiveté,” Comey and his fellow investigators concluded. It constituted “a highly improper pattern of deliberate misconduct.” (Inside the FBI Investigation of Hillary Clinton’s E-Mail; Massimo Calabresi; time.com; 3/31/2016)
It is eerily similar because despite such a damning indictment, Clinton faced no consequences for her alleged actions.
This past July, just as with Whitewater, Comey issued a damning indictment of Clinton before a Congressional Committee; in which he carefully, and some might say methodically, laid out the FBI’s findings against Clinton’s actions pursuant to her email server investigation – only to conclude by saying that he was unable to find evidence that she intentionally acted in way that was worthy of prosecution.
Many will remember Clinton glibly boasting that she would never be indicted for her email server. Ben Kew noted the braggadocio when he wrote: “The makers of the app responsible for clearing Hillary Clinton’s private server of potentially damaging emails has bragged that it managed to stop the FBI from accessing them.” (Makers Of App Used To Destroy Clinton Emails Boast About Hindering FBI Investigation; Breibert.com; 8/27/2016)
But despite the mountain of evidence against Clinton, she remains free and unindicted, while being toasted as “really, really qualified to be president.”
