In the firestorm caused by dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, the only sober and probably the most reliable source of explanation is James K. Kallstrom.
“I’m glad it happened … I think Jim Comey way back almost a year ago kind of forgot he was the FBI director,” Kallstrom told Fox News today (May 10, 2016). “Jim Comey danced with the devil, and later on down the road talked about this great investigation the FBI conducted … Of course, they had no subpoena power, they couldn’t compel any investigation or search warrants. They had to beg people to look at things. The interview of Hillary Clinton, in my view, was a sham … Comey made a lot of mistakes, but is “basically a good guy” … He was lacking common sense, and it’s time for new leadership in the FBI … he threw the FBI under the bus, and the reputation of the FBI under the bus … That’s what I am very mad about and have been very mad about for a long time,” said Kallstrom.
Here what James Kallstrom was talking yet before the election day in his explosive interview with Judge Jeanine Pirro on October 29, 2016.
James K. Kallstrom (74), is a former FBI Assistant Director. He led the investigation into the 1996 explosion of TWA Flight 800. He was a supervising agent in the New York investigation of the Cosa Nostra criminal network that resulted in the Mafia Commission Trial of 1985–1986. Kallstrom worked for 27 years at the FBI and has been described as an expert in wiretapping. He is a former Marine captain and Vietnam veteran. He left the public sector for private sector employment in the financial industry beginning in 1998. After the 9/11 attacks, Kallstrom returned to the public sector to lead New York state’s public safety office. In the 2016 presidential election, Kallstrom supported Donald Trump and has referred to Hillary Clinton and the Clinton family as being criminal-like. He called the Clinton Foundation a “cesspool”. Kallstrom has established relationships with Rush Limbaugh and Fox News to further his work to promote the Marine Corps – Law Enforcement Foundation (MC-LEF), a charitable organization of which he is the Chairman of the Board.
On Fox News, Kallstrom accused US Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, of bias by behaving as if she were part of the Democratic National Committee (“pay-to-play” investigation).
