Hillary Clinton should have been charged for her inability to properly manage her email system. She broke the law. Former FBI Director James Comey rewrote the law to let her off the hook. Andrew C. McCarthy wrote a great piece about it when that controversy was developing. Not only that, Director Comey had already started […]
Only the pure desperation of the Democratic Party could possibly continue to try to make advantage out of President Trump’s decision yesterday to terminate FBI director Comey. Everyone feared him. Everyone wanted him gone.However, if everyone would simply read the last half of the letter sent by the new deputy Attorney General, Rod J. Rosenstein, to Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions. Rosenstein has only been in the job since April 25th. He recommended Comey’s firing. Sessions sent his letter on to President Trump along with a shorter one of his own.
Rosenstein’s letter lays out an iron-clad case to the point where no reasonable person would question it.
What the Democrats count on is that only a small percentage of the population would actually read this relatively short letter. Therefore, as a public service, we will read – not the entire letter – but only the last page and a quarter – a grand total of 673 words.
Again, this is the new deputy Attorney General, Rod J. Rosenstein, writing to Atty. Gen. Jeff Sessions, laying out his case. Sessions, then agreed, wrote a short memo to President Trump, and forwarded this recommendation on to the President.
Even though he had often expressed confidence in Comey when asked about the director’s fate, President Trump has also expressed displeasure with Comey over several issues, including his handling of the investigation into any collusion by his election campaign and the Russian government.
But, the president has been especially critical of Comey for his decision not to prosecute presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during the 2016 campaign for her mishandling of classified information on her private email server.
On Tuesday, that frustration culminated in the director’s firing.
President Trump may have given a hint of what was to come when he posted a critical tweet a week ago:
“FBI Director Comey was the best thing that ever happened to Hillary Clinton in that he gave her a free pass for many bad deeds! The phony Trump/Russia story was an excuse used by the Democrats as justification for losing the election. Perhaps Trump just ran a great campaign?”
In a statement released Tuesday by the White House, President Trump said, “The FBI is one of our Nation’s most cherished and respected institutions and today will mark a new beginning for our crown jewel of law enforcement.”

In telephone conversations with Donald Trump, FBI Director James Comey assured the president-elect there was no credible evidence that Russia influenced the outcome of the recent U.S. presidential election by hacking the Democratic National Committee and the emails of John Podesta, the chairman of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
What’s more, Comey told Trump that James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, agreed with this FBI assessment.
The only member of the U.S. intelligence community who was ready to assert that the Russians sanctioned the hacking was John Brennan, the director of the CIA, according to sources who were briefed on Comey’s conversations with Trump.
“And Brennan takes his marching orders from President Obama,” the sources quoted Comey as saying.
In Comey’s view, the leaks to The New York Times and The Washington Post alleging that the Russians tried—and perhaps even succeeded—in tilting the election to Trump were a Democratic Party effort to delegitimize Trump’s victory.
During their phone conversations, Comey informed Trump that the FBI had been alert for the past year to the danger that the Russians would try to cause mischief during the U.S. presidential election.
However, whether the Russians did so remains an open question, Comey said, adding that it was just as likely that the hacking was done by people who had no direct connection to the Russian government.
“It’s also unclear,” the sources pointed out, “why Putin would have preferred dealing with Donald Trump, who has promised a major military buildup, over Hillary Clinton, who would have continued Barack Obama’s cautious policies toward the Kremlin.”

Stefan Molyneux does a fairly good job of summarizing the current state of affairs regarding Hillary’s Email and the FBI. Some of the details don’t match Judge Jeanine’s version of the facts, but are trivial in the grand scheme of things. I share his disbelief that people believe she is guilty of wrongdoing and STILL plan on voting for her.
To this, I would add that the New York City Police Department (NYPD) is pursuing Hillary’s Emails, as well, and unlike the FBI, they can convene a grand jury without the involving the Department of Justice (DOJ).
