When Trump fired Comey in May, Democrats immediately claimed it was “obstruction of justice.”
Some House Democrats even introduced Articles of Impeachment based on their accusations.
But with this statement, the new FBI Director just threw cold water on their claims.
Chris Wray was recently confirmed as the new FBI Director.
He recently made his first public appearance since taking on his new role and issued a statement that left Trump opponents stunned.
The Washington Times reports:
“I can say very confidently I have not detected any whiff of interference in that investigation,” Mr. Wray said, speaking alongside intelligence community leaders at a security conference in D.C.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is overseeing the investigation into Moscow’s interference in the election and any coordination with members of the Trump campaign, but the FBI is providing agents to assist the work.
Mr. Wray told an audience at the Intelligence and National Security Alliance conference that he has confidence in those working the probe as well as “enormous respect” for Mr. Mueller.
Democrats contend that Trump fired Comey because he was getting too close in his investigation into the Trump campaign for “collusion.”
So far, no evidence has been found to back up any such claims, but that hasn’t stopped Democrat politicians from calling for more investigations.
Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) said the investigation “will conclude when we conclude we’ve uncovered all the evidence… that may exist of obstruction of justice, of collusion…”
In other words, their investigation will never end.
It’s like the determined crypto-zoologist seeking to prove Big Foot exists.
No matter how little evidence can ever be discovered to verify its existence, that won’t stop them from believing it does and that some day they’ll find the evidence they need.
It’s time for Congress to put an end to this by putting a deadline on funding for the Mueller investigation.
Otherwise, this will continue well into 2020 and beyond, should Trump run and win a second term.
