Liberals have pitched a six month hissy fit over FBI Director James Comey’s decision to publically reveal 11 days before the election that the FBI had reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information on her private email server.
But when Comey testified before Congress he revealed a never before reported bombshell that blew the case wide open.
Democrats believed Comey weighed in on behalf of Trump.
They contend his action tipped the election against Clinton.
However, Comey revealed what evidence the FBI discovered.
FBI agents found that the Clinton team had forwarded emails with classified information to disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner.
Weiner was the husband of Clinton campaign vice chairwoman Huma Abedin.
Te FBI’s discovery of the emails on Weiner’s laptop prompted Comey’s letter to Congress informing them the investigation was reopened.
Breitbart reports on Comey’s testimony where he explained his reasoning:
“He said not saying something would have been an “act of concealment,” and that he was faced with two choices: speak or conceal. Concealment would have been “catastrophic,” he said.
He said he was asked by a subordinate whether his decision would help then-candidate Donald Trump with the election, but he did not “for a moment” think about whose political fortunes would be affected, and that he had to do the “right thing.”
Comey also described how he had two options: “speak” and “conceal.”
Politico reports on why he chose to speak:
“Comey opened up about why he sent his Oct. 28 letter about new evidence in the Clinton probe.
It came down to “speak” or “conceal,” Comey said. “Speak,” he reasoned, “would be really bad. There’s an election in 11 days. Lordy, that would be really bad. Concealing in my view would be catastrophic, not just to the FBI but well beyond. And, honestly, as between really bad and catastrophic, I said to my team: ‘We’ve got to walk into the world of really bad. I’ve got to tell Congress that we’re restarting this, not in some frivolous way — in a hugely significant way.”
Clinton believes Comey helped cost her the election.
But Comey never would have factored into the equation if she had just followed the law and used a government address for her email.
Hillary has no one to blame but herself.
