Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey must be a speed reader.
After taking a year to review 33,000 emails previously discovered on Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private server, the FBI has now “looked at” 650,000 emails and documents in one week, according to the Daily Caller.
“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton,” Comey wrote Sunday in a letter to the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
Comey announced the renewed investigation on Oct. 28, after federal agents discovered emails on the home computer that former Congressman Anthony Weiner shared with estranged wife and top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, who has also been questioned at length by the FBI.
In July 2016, Comey was questioned by the House Oversight Committee regarding his refusal to recommend criminal charges for Clinton.
At that time, Hillary Clinton praised him. In October, when he reopened the investigation, she vilified him. Today, we can expect her to once again applaud his judgment.
Comey has lost his credibility on both sides of the aisle.
On Sunday”s “State of the Union” on CNN, Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sharply criticized Comey’s handling of the entire matter. Franken, a liberal Democrat, said Comey had failed to keep the department on its mission and had become politicized, according to CNN.
Franken then called for Senate hearings on the matter and said, “I’m sure that Comey will be before us.”
The FBI is a non-partisan entity operating as part of the U.S. Department of Justice. Not since the days of J. Edgar Hoover has the head of the FBI been embroiled in such controversy.
James Comey has a long reputation as a straight shooter. His disgraceful handling of what history will know as “Emailgate” has compromised his ability to effectively represent the mission of the FBI.
