Comey Claims ‘No Serious Person’ Would Make a Case Against Hillary — Says Case is Closed

During his testimony to Congress on Friday, former FBI Director James Comey seemed frustrated that Hillary Clinton’s email scandal was brought up during questioning.

In the testimony, Comey answered questions about the Russia investigation. While speaking to reporters following the testimony, however, Comey focused on the questions that were asked about the emails:

“After a full day of questioning, two things are clear to me. One, we could have done this in an open setting. And two, when you read the transcript, you will see that we are talking again about Hillary Clinton’s emails, for heaven’s sakes, so I’m not sure we need to do this at all. But I’m trying to respect the institution and to answer questions in a respectful way. You’ll see I did that in the transcript.”

During the questioning, according to Mediaite, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) asked Comey if there was any possibility that the emails should be investigated further.

“Not that I can possibly see,” Comey said.

When Lee asked if the case is completely closed, Comey claimed that there was no way anything could happen with the current evidence.

“Yes. There’s no serious person who thinks there’s a prosecutable case there,” Comey said.

However, in the past, Comey has admitted that Clinton was “extremely careless” and put classified information at risk.

“Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information,” said Comey.

Am I the only one who finds that the FACT that the dims absolutely HATED comey before the election 2016 and now treat him as their golden boy ironic?

Rep Jackson-Lee Lee asked a question of Comey—there was no reporting of treating him as their golden boy. Comey answered the question. Rosenstein’s memo for Trump justifying Comey’s firing was on Comey’s unfair handling of the public release of the email investigation. Comey was interviewed by Nicolle Wallace at the 92nd Street YMCA—https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xqGu66D6VU You often confuse “Never Trumpers” and Democrats. Many Never Trumpers left the R party most registered as I’s.

” Rosenstein’s memo for Trump justifying Comey’s firing was on Comey’s unfair handling of the public release of the email investigation.” Nice spin. You sure it wasn’t Comey just plain over-stepping the boundaries of his job and the DAMAGE he did to the FBI’s reputation? Straight from rosenstein’s letter, “The way the Director handled the conclusion of the email investigation was wrong.

continued-“As a result, the FBI is unlikely to regain public and congressional trust until it has a Director who understands the gravity of the mistakes and pledges never to repeat them. Having refused to admit his errors, the Director cannot be expected to implement the necessary corrective actions.” Not one mention of being “unfair” is there, philly? He was WRONG, he REFUSED to admit mistakes and can’t be expected to right his wrongs. Plain and simple.

“Comey was interviewed by Nicolle Wallace at the 92nd Street YMCA”. What’s your point there?Glad you brought up the interview that Comey was quoted as saying,”All of us should use every breath we have to make sure that the lying stops on January 20,2021″.The man? that said “I don’t recall, I don’t remember or I don’t know, 245 times,” in his closed door session with Congress is calling someone else a liar.How rich!! Maybe a whole lot of that lying stopped the day he was fired.

…and yet Comey ‘spiked’ the Hildebeast’s campaign by reopening an investigation of her emails, which, like Benghazi, and other investigations can ALWAYS be reopened.

The Dims have loved him, hated him, and now have made him a martyr. Consistency has NEVER been your party’s strong point or even a consideration.

Neither Sessions nor Trump and many of his agents trusted him, q.v. the vote of confidence. Can YOU say unfit for his position? He displeased his bosses AND lost faith.

Treason for a start.

Intent is not necessary to the prosecution of miss handling classified information and Comey knows that. HRC broke the law and got a pass. What does Comey mean by “serous person”? Does he mean a politically ambitious person.

Phyllis Softa

He means a person capable of a coherent thought.

I believe the phrase you are looking for is: Liar! Liar! Pants on fire!

It is unfortunate that our tax dollars went to
pay this incompetent guy’s salary as FBI director. How did he remain in his position as Director when his memory was for crap? Good thing he was fired.
