The Incredible Mr. Comey

By May 27, 2017

Former FBI director James Comey has a long and telling career; telling much about his rise to FBI director.  Although Comey speaks stoically about following the “rule of law”, and “following in the spirit of our founding fathers”, he has shown time and again that his actions speak louder than his words.  In recent times, he came under criticism for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton.  Certainly his announcement in October 2016 that there were new Clinton emails which warranted  further investigation was a serious breach of protocol. 

Coming so close to the elections some say, damaged her chances and could have possibly cost her the nomination.  I guess we won’t blame Comey for Hillary’s loss as long as we have Trump and the Russians to blame.  In fact in July 2016 Comey came under fire for giving Hillary Clinton a pass explaining there “was no intent.”  His decision not to prosecute Clinton even though she was in fact guilty was  generous if not curiously suspicious.   Mr. Trump was severely disappointed in Comey’s decision.

It wasn’t the first time he had given a pass to the Clintons........ To Read More....

My Take - I'm not a particular fan of Martha Stewart, but when I read some days ago Comey was at the head of that sensation getting witch hunt I knew for sure all this clabber about how he was a good and faithful servant of the law  - was a load of horsepucky!  Martha Stewart wasn't prosecuted for what they went after the for - she was prosecuted for being Martha Stewart and to send a message.  And now that we're becoming aware of all the infamy he's been at the center of  - I think there's a question far more reaching than whether he should have been fired or not - but whether he should be prosecuted or not.
