So much for his much-vaunted straight-shooter reputation.
As regular readers know, his July 5th whitewash of Clinton led many of us to sit stunned as the detailed her criminality, then failed to recommend prosecution.
The fallout continues. It appears that many senior agents in the FBI describe Comey as a hack.
This is a big development. This means there are some great, traditional, honest people inside the FBI and DOJ who will not let this stand. They know that Comey is a dirty cop and they are disgusted. Inside the bureau I had a meeting today with a senior former FBI agent who told me this exact story. That people are starting to talk. They’re calling their former friends outside the bureau asking for help. We were asked, today, to provide legal representation for people inside the bureau and we agreed to do so. And, to former agents who want to come forward to talk.A Daily Caller article gets a little more blunt.
“Comey was never an investigator or special agent. The special agents are trained investigators and they are insulted that Comey included them in ‘collective we’ statements in his testimony to imply that the SAs agreed that there was nothing there to prosecute,” the second agent said. “All the trained investigators agree that there is a lot to prosecuted but he stood in the way.”There you have it. Comey stood in the way of the investigation. At some point, a "reasonable prosecutor" might have to convene a grand jury and look at obstruction charges against Comey.
