New Report From DOJ Inspector General Eviscerates James Comey

Published

James Comey

A new report from the Department of Justice Inspector General has been revealed to the public by Bloomberg News. The report is related to the actions taken by the FBI during the 2016 presidential election concerning Hillary Clinton’s misuse of a private email server, and in it, James Comey gets raked over the coals.

According to Bloomberg, Michael Horowitz — the IG — is the same fellow who recommended that former deputy FBI director Andrew McCabe be prosecuted for leaking information to the media. He states in this new report that former Director James Comey violated protocol in his handling of this investigation, but the reason he did so was not due to political bias.

While we did not find that these decisions were the result of political bias on Comey’s part, we nevertheless concluded that by departing so clearly and dramatically from FBI and department norms, the decisions negatively impacted the perception of the FBI and the department as fair administrators of justice.

Horowitz said that Comey had troublingly failed to inform the Department of Justice in advance about his July 5 statement condemning Clinton for carelessness but absolving her of criminal activity. Horowitz said that Comey’s failure to coordinate with the DOJ involved a “troubling lack of any direct, substantive communication” with then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Horowitz added that Comey should have coordinated with Lynch before sending his October 28, 2016 letter to Congress announcing the reopening of the Hillary email investigation based on discoveries on Anthony Weiner’s computer. Horowitz stated:

We found it extraordinary that, in advance of two such consequential decisions, the FBI director decided that the best course of conduct was to not speak directly and substantively with the attorney general about how best to navigate those decisions.

While Horowitz did investigate anti-Trump text messages between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page, he found that there was no “documentary or testimonial evidence that improper considerations, including political bias, directly affected the specific investigative actions we reviewed.” He did state, “The conduct by these employees cast a doubt over the entire FBI investigation.”

You can almost hear the spin happening by both parties on this report. Democrats will likely state that the mishandling of the situation damaged Hillary’s chances of cinching a victory in the election, while the GOP will say that Horowitz is wrong and that Comey was biased, looking to work against the Republican Party at every turn.

Basically, this report doesn’t really clear anything up at all, but that won’t prevent folks from attempting to twist it up and use it come election time later this year.

Democrat Senators Refuse To Comment On Removal Of George Washington Statues

Published

on

The Daily Caller recently reached out to the offices of every single Democratic senator to find out what they thought of the notion of tearing down George Washington statues, a move that would be consistent with their support of the removal of other works of art and monuments that Black Lives Matter and other radical leftists claim offend someone. Every single one of them refused to comment. That’s telling, isn’t it? Check out more of the details from The Washington Examiner: One senator, Tammy Duckworth from Illinois, recently said she supports a conversation on removing such statues. “He should be talking about what we’re going to do to overcome this pandemic,” Duckworth said of President Trump during a CNN interview earlier in July. “What are we going to do to push Russia back? Instead, he had no time for that. He spent all his time talking about dead traitors.” She added during the interview, “I think we should listen to the argument there. But remember that the president at Mount Rushmore was standing on ground that was stolen from Native Americans who had actually been given that land during a treaty.” What this really comes down to is the fact the left wants to sanitize the history of the United States and supplant the truth with their own revisionist version of events in order to help support their own progressive principles to further brainwash future generations of young people into being loyal to the state and the values it espouses. The reality is, we need to leave these monuments alone, even if they are offensive. Why? Because, for starters, people are more complex than all evil and all good. At least most people. These monuments are a testament to the history of our nation. They remind us of who we…

Failed Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton Says ‘We Must Be Ready’ For Possibility Trump Will Refuse To Leave Office

Published

on

Twice failed Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continues to demonstrate that she’s sour over the major defeat she suffered at the hands of Donald Trump by spouting off all sorts of nonsense conspiracy theories about the president not leaving office if he loses the election this year. Obviously, this is nothing more than an attempt to fear monger and try making liberals shake in their boots and show up en masse to defeat the president in November. The more scared the left keeps people, the more they will refuse to see the truth behind what is happening in our country, believing that the only way to stay safe from the big, bad president is through liberal policies. Clinton conducted an interview with Trevor Noah from The Daily Show where she discussed mail-in ballots and potential voter suppression. Here’s more detail from The Washington Examiner: Noah asked Clinton if there was a scenario she could envision in which the president loses the election but argues that a couple instances of voter fraud are enough to invalidate of the election results. “Well, I think it is a fair point to raise as to whether or not, if he loses, he’s going to go quietly or not. And we have to be ready for that. But there have been so many academic studies and other analyses, which point out that it’s just an inaccurate, fraudulent claim,” she said in reference to Republican claims about the potential for widespread voter fraud via mail-in ballots. Voting by mail, a longstanding practice, has been fiercely debated as more election officials have expanded access to absentee voting during the coronavirus pandemic. https://youtu.be/jwhCtkssg00 “Look, I want a fair election. If people get to vote and they, for whatever reason, vote for Donald Trump,…
