James Comey’s new book goes to great lengths to defend the integrity of the Department of Justice and the FBI both of whom he defends as entirely apolitical and with no bias.
Of course, that claim flies in the face of obvious evidence both of the leaking and corruption of Andrew McCabe (not ‘Neil McCabe’ as we incorrectly referred to him yesterday) and the very blatant bias and collusion of Peter Strzok and Lisa Page (who worked directly for McCabe).
But Comey does pin the tail on the donkey (pun intended) by calling out Obama for his unfortunate comment in a 60 Minutes interview in which he called Hillary’s server a ‘mistake’.
And then there was the move by Loretta Lynch to urge the FBI to call it a ‘matter’ rather than an investigation.
Other than those slight problems, everything was tip-top.
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
Former FBI Director James Comey doesn’t believe anyone in the government brought politics into the Hillary Clinton email investigation — aside from then-President Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who he believes “jeopardized” the Department of Justice.
In his upcoming book, A Higher Loyalty, due out on Tuesday, Comey defends the FBI investigators who were charged with investigating Clinton’s private email server and her mishandling of classified information. The Washington Examiner obtained a copy of the book Sunday.
“I never heard anyone on our team — not one — take a position that seemed driven by their personal political motivations. And more than that: I never heard an argument or observation I thought came from a political bias. Never,” Comey writes in his book. “Instead we debated, argued, listened, reflected, agonized, played devil’s advocate, and even found opportunities to laugh as we hashed out major decisions.”
