FBI Comey under attack from both sides for distorting news


Recommended Posts

...and playing partisan politics...he may even have broke the law.

 

Media figures from across the political spectrum are criticizing FBI Director James Comey for defying Justice Department rules and precedent to issue a short and vague letter informing Congress that the Bureau had obtained and was seeking to review emails “that appear to be pertinent to the investigation” regarding Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state. The journalists and pundits called the timing of Comey’s letter “unfortunate, given its potential to affect a democratic process in which millions of people are already voting,” with some going so far as to say Comey’s letter “both disgraces and politicizes the FBI.”

Yahoo News: Comey Unaware Of Contents Of Emails Because FBI Has Yet To Review Them, May Not Contain New Material.

 

Yahoo News reported on October 29 that at the time of the letter, “Comey and other senior FBI officials were not aware of what was in the emails — and whether they contained any material the FBI had not already obtained.” Yahoo News further reported that the FBI had yet to obtain a search warrant to read the emails and thus is “still in the dark about whether they include any classified material that the bureau has not already seen.”

 

 

The New Yorker: “Comey’s Decisions Is A Striking Break With The Policies Of The Department Of Justice.”

 

The New Yorker reported on October 29 that Comey’s release of the letter contradicted long-standing DOJ policies against taking actions that could influence election results, citing current and former federal legal officials.

 

Fox’s George Will: “This Is A Content-Less October Surprise … The Country, At This Point, Immediately Needs Some Context For All This.”

George Will criticized Comey’s letter to Congress, calling it “baffling,” and adding that “The duty of the FBI is to investigate, and when it thinks it has concluded an investigation, to pass its conclusion on to the prosecutorial arm of the Department of Justice, not to write letters to the legislative branch of government.”

At this time I doubt anything short of Hillary being arrested or Trump finding the cure for cancer will change many people's minds.

Those include every email that 320 million Americans sent in the past 8 yrs that mention "Hillary" in the text. Yes, that's going to be a lot of work.

 

Remember this classic..

 

You think the government should be allowed to force people to give up their organs...

 

 

And I have written my Congressmen to that effect.

This includes a kidney or part of your liver, Everyone should be on a list, and when someone needs a liver or kidney transplant and your number comes up in the lottery, assuming you don't have some blood anormality or disease, you should be required to report to the hospital (the govt would pay you a per diem) and donate part of your liver or a kidney. You are part of this society, and as such you have a responsibility to ACT like you're part of the group.
