FBI Director James Comey has been in and out of the news cycle for quite some time, ever since, in July, he did all but indict Hillary Clinton regarding her email scandal. He laid out the case for indictment, and ended his statement that “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
Democrats loved him after this, praising him to the hills. Then, a few months later, Comey reopened the case. Two weeks later, he closed it with the same conclusion he originally came to.
Yesterday, Comey testified that the FBI is investigating Russia’s attempts to interfere with the presidential election. In addition, the investigation covers whether there was any collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, and if there were any crimes committed. “Putin hated Clinton so much that the flip side is he had a clear preference for the person she was running against.”
Comey is a true disgrace to his position. Aside from the fact that he went out of his way not to recommend indictment of Clinton in July, and then changed his mind twice, he now makes the investigation of collaboration between Donald Trump and Russia public, and testifies with a speculation of how Putin felt about Clinton, despite that attributing motive accurately is virtually impossible.
There is no evidence that Trump colluded with Russia, or that Putin hates Clinton. But even worse, Comey and NSA Director Michael Rogers, who also testified, both acknowledged that they could not determine if the Russian attempts to “hack” the election actually had any influence on voters. In fact, when asked by Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) if there was any evidence at all that the vote tallies in several states, such as Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, all surprise wins for Trump, were tampered with, Comey and Rogers stated that there was not.
Translation: this investigation leads nowhere. Trump won the election fairly, regardless of what Russia may or may not have done, and the mainstream media, which has been pushing this narrative for months of Russian hacking to cover for a surprising loss for Clinton, had its narrative completely blown. White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer echoed this, saying that “following this testimony it’s clear that nothing has changed.”
These investigations are just major distractions from real issues that the Americans should be paying attention to, such as the fight over the Obamacare repeal, the Supreme Court, or national security issues.
So the question remains, why is Comey still the director of the FBI? changes his story often and is clearly inconsistent, his major investigations have led nowhere but more confusion for the American people. Therefore, it is obvious Comey is unfit for the job, and Trump should replace him immediately.
