On Wednesday, the FBI confirmed that James Comey personally wrote a letter exonerating Hillary Clinton before she had even been interviewed. As Comey was drafting the letter, he was telling Fox News at the time that there is “no special set of rules” for anyone – even Hillary Clinton.
Fox News reports:
Newly released FBI records titled “Drafts of Director Comey’s July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation Part 01 of 01” confirmed that Comey drafted a statement on the Clinton case two months before interviewing her and eventually recommending no criminal charges.
The contents of the emails are unclear because most of the material was redacted. However, the now-public records show an email titled, “Midyear Exam UNCLASSIFIED” was sent by Comey on May 2, 2016 to Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, General Counsel James Baker and James Rybicki, then chief of staff and senior counselor.
In other words, Comey was prepared before anything happened with the investigation to protect Hillary Clinton.
This comes as a shock to the President, who fired Comey because he was convinced the former FBI director was unfair to his former opponent – another example of why you should not be kind of liberals even in victory (it will come back to bite you).
The President responded swiftly, appointing Missouri Senate candidate Courtland Sykes as special prosecutor investigating Comey for perjury.
“I’m very excited to help the President out in this very trying time for our country,” Sykes told the Kansas City Post. “Of course, I will continue to serve the great people of Alaska in any way we can.”
“Don’t worry,” he told prospective voters. “We’ll have this cleared up in time for the election.”
