I hope Hillary Clinton will be referred to as “Crooked Hillary” for the rest of her life. She is beyond crooked, and she lost the Election because the American people knew that. The Democrats just had their day on Capitol Hill to run FBI Director James Comey into the ground. Comey must face the fact if he had only found Clinton guilty in his first investigation into her email scandal, he would not be in the mess he is in today. Clinton was clearly guilty of the intent not to correct her email problem; thus, she outed Agents in the field, and cared not about US National Security . However, if the DOJ/lLoretta Lynch blocked Comey, which they did, he could not really do the job he was assigned to do. There is no way out for Comey, and his only recourse is forgiveness by President-elect Trump by keeping him on as FBI Director.
President-elect Trump is encountering new road blocks to his Presidency everyday. January 20, 2016 can not come soon enough, and I truly mean that. Democrats demanded to know, did Mr. Comey believe it was O.K. to make repeated disclosures during the campaign about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, but to this day refuse to say if the FBI is investigating links between the Trump campaign and Russia? Here we go again, the Democrats truly have no shame nor dignity! Comey’s answers did not prove very satisfying. Representative Nancy Pelosi of California grew so frustrated that at one point she chastised Mr. Comey for being “condescending to members.” Pelosi has no grace whatsoever!
Now enters someone who should truly be ashamed and not show her face. Debbie Wasserman Schultz , who was chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee when it was hacked, asked why Comey had never called her about the intrusions. The FBI notified the committee of the original hacking, but failed to communicate with them at a later date. I want to thank Comey for that, as it allowed the American people to see what was really going on inside the DNC. Schulz deserved to lose her job as Chairman of the DNC. She is guilty of gross misconduct, and how she even faced Comey is unknown to me, as she should be hiding in a closet.
Now, get this: Representative Adam B. Schiff, Democrat of California, said: “I don’t want to go into the contents of what were discussed,”but “a great many members are concerned with whether the director has employed a double standard.” Oh, no he does not want to discuss the CONTENTS, as that would just bring up “crooked Hillary”, and the Democrats certainly want to protect her. Comey did not respond to Schiff.
But on Friday, Senator Richard M. Burr of North Carolina, the chairman of the Intelligence Committee, announced that the committee would hold hearings on the Russian activity and its effect on the election. They just cannot let it go, and they are doing everything they can do to halt the inauguration.
The FBI is not sold on the idea that Russia had a particular aim in its meddling. “There’s no question that [the Russians’] efforts went one way, but it’s not clear that they have a specific goal or mix of related goals,” said one U.S. official.
The murky nature of the assessments is maddening many lawmakers who are demanding answers about the Kremlin’s role in the presidential race. The FBI, under Director James B. Comey, is already under fire for dropping a bombshell letter days before the election on the discovery of new emails potentially related to the Clinton private server investigation. The emails proved irrelevant to the case. On Saturday, outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) called on Comey to resign, saying the FBI director deliberately kept quiet evidence about Russia’s motives before the election.
Many of the Republican lawmakers welcomed the FBI’s caution. They didn’t think the CIA had a basis for coming to the conclusions presented to the Senate panel. Some of the Republicans on the House side thought it would have been more logical for the CIA to conclude that Russia preferred Clinton because she was a known commodity and because Trump talked during the campaign of expanding the U.S. military, something Russia might interpret as a threat, according to officials.
At one point during the discussion in the secure room, a Republican lawmaker turned to his Democratic colleagues and said the back-and-forth suggested that “Republicans are from Mars, Democrats are from Venus,” according to an aide who was present, adding: “We’re looking at the same evidence and drawing very different conclusions
WASHINGTON — America’s intelligence chiefs sat down with members of Congress behind closed doors on Friday for what they thought would be a straightforward briefing on Russian cyberattacks. What ensued instead was a confrontation Democrats have long sought with James B. Comey, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Why, the House Democrats demanded to know, did Mr. Comey believe it was O.K. to make repeated disclosures during the campaign about the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails but to this day refuse to say if the F.B.I. is investigating links between the Trump campaign and Russia?
His answers did not prove very satisfying. Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the minority leader, grew so frustrated that at one point she chastised Mr. Comey for being “condescending to members.”
Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida, who was chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee when it was hacked, asked why Mr. Comey had never called her about the intrusions, which began in August 2015 and continued over the course of many months. The F.B.I. notified the committee of the original hacking, but reached a low-level tech support contractor and went back and forth with him for months before the leadership of the organization was informed and took steps to halt the intrusion.
