James Comey’s world is crumbling around him.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report detailed Comey’s corrupt and unethical leadership while running the FBI.
But that was nothing compared to what Trey Gowdy had in store.
Gowdy kicked off a House Oversight hearing about the Inspector General report by teeing off on James Comey.
Fox News reports:
“We see Jim Comey and Jim Comey alone deciding which DOJ policies to follow and which to ignore,” he said.
Gowdy accused Comey of watering down his initial statement on the investigation’s findings and making other decisions on his own. While Comey has suggested he acted unilaterally out of concern for the Justice Department’s handling of the case, Gowdy questioned why he didn’t seek a special counsel — as he indirectly did regarding concerns about the Trump administration.
“Instead, he appointed himself FBI director, attorney general, special counsel, lead investigator and the general arbiter of what is good and right in the world according to him,” Gowdy said..
Horowitz report laid bare the political bias that drove both the Clinton email and Russia investigations.
The Bureau went easy on Clinton and turned the screws to Trump.
Gowdy’s question about why Comey didn’t appoint a special counsel is answered by the facts laid out in the report.
Comey and his henchmen were determined to clear Hillary Clinton from the get go.
This was not a legitimate investigation.
It was a whitewash to clean up any stain from the scandal that Republicans could use to delegitimize her impending Presidency.
Comey and his crew figured they could get away with it all because Hillary was going to win.
But Trump shocked the world and now Americans are getting a firsthand look at the rot in James Comey’s FBI.
