8 Lies the Media Told This Week about the Comey Story
Despite the White House claim that FBI Director James Comey had "lost the confidence" of his agents in the field, the head of the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI told Newsmax that Comey was highly regarded by current and former agents. "The overwhelming opinion of our membership is that Director Comey was outstanding," said Nancy Savage, executive director of the 80-year-old society that includes more than 8,500 members.........Continue Reading.....
My Take - According to Larry Klayman "this Is BS: Ethical Special Agents of the FBI are appalled and disgusted at Comey's political hackery at the agency. He took a dive on the Hillary investigation and covered up the NSA/CIA mass surveillance investigation triggered by my client Dennis Montgomery! See www.freedomwatchusa.org".
It's really interesting to watch the reporting on this. First - when the FBI investigated Clinton he claimed there wasn't enough evidence to prosecute her, and it was claimed the people he worked with were so disgusted by his actions many wouldn't talk to him any longer. Now that he's been fired by Trump it turns out he was adored by the agents, and worse yet there are those who are claiming he took a bullet to protect the integrity of the agency. And now they claim agents within the agency are so outraged at his firing they're fighting back against the administration. Amazing! How did such a turn about happen?
Here's what it comes down to. His job was to investigate and turn over the facts of the investigation to the Attorney General. That's what was his job. It was Lynch's job to determine whether or not to prosecute. As one writer noted:
"While Lynch "recused" herself after being caught in a tawdry tryst on the tarmac with Billy Boy, Comey was under no obligation to accept her "deference" to his judgment about whether to prosecute Hillary. The proper response for Comey would have been to summarize his findings, and pass them on to Lynch's Justice Department to decide about whether to proceed with prosecution. If Lynch wanted to remove herself from the decision, fine. Her second in command could have made the call. But when Comey decided all by his little lonesome that "no reasonable prosecutor" would bring charges, his ego overstepped his authority. Comey should have forced Justice to make the call."If he feared turning over the facts of the agency's investigation into the Clintons to Lynch because she would have dumped that information and investigation for political reason he should have done his job and if she didn't do hers he should have resigned publicly - stating his reasons - and let it hit the fan.
The fact is he failed as an agent, a law enforcement officer and an administrator, and any agents attempting to strike back at the administration will be fired along with a host of other political hacks at the Justice department.
