Former FBI Director James Comey defended President Barack Obama’s handling of Russian interference during the 2016 election, placing more blame on Republican lawmakers for not wanting to disclose Russia’s involvement to the public sooner.
During a televised town hall, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper asked Comey about President Trump’s repeated criticism of his predecessor for not taking more action against Russia on his watch.
“What should have been done more? Could more have been done? You were at the FBI at that point,” Cooper said.
“That’s a hard question. President Obama faced a very difficult choice. The No. 1 goal for the Russians is to damage our democracy and undermine faith in our electoral process,” Comey responded. “If he makes an announcement that the Russians are coming for the election, has he just accomplished their goal for them and has he given Donald Trump an excuse to say, ‘Obama fixed the election’? So I get why he struggled with it.”
Comey credited Obama for doing a “sensible thing” by trying to get top lawmakers on both sides of the aisle to go public about Russia’s meddling.
“He tried getting the bipartisan leaders of Congress to jointly tell the American people this is going on,” Comey continued. “And, in my view, to their everlasting shame, the Republicans refused.”
The former FBI director also mentioned that he offered to write an op-ed during the election to inform the country about Russia, but was shut down by the Obama administration.
“I get why President Obama hesitated and I agreed with his concern about not accomplishing Russia’s goal for them,” Comey told Cooper.
In a wide-ranging town hall about the Russia investigation, Comey was asked about the reported undercover investigator who was sent to meet former Trump campaign advisor George Papadopoulos. He dismissed the notion that it was “spying” and called it “reasonable” and a “totally normal step” based on the investigation.
What a bunch of bull.
Obama was too busy spying on Trump to worry about the Russians.
The Russians were the least of his worries.
He wanted his “legacy” to continue. That’s why he was attempting to make sure that Hillary Clinton would be the next president.
Here is all you need to know about Former FBI Director James Comey.
Former President Barack Hussein Obama hired James Comey.
Comey is a Professional Bureaucrat. He is a Political Weasel.
Comey followed Robert Mueller as Director of the FBI.
He remained loyal to King Barack The First after President Trump decided to keep him on as FBI Director.
That is why he took notes in meetings with Trump and did not document his meetings with anyone in the Previous Administration, including Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama.
Back on September 20, 2016. Breitbart.com reported the following about Comey…
A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.
These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.
When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.
But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.
Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel.
How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.
Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.
According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010.
In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.
In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings.
“Mr. Comey’s appointment will be for an initial three-year term which, subject to re-election by shareholders, will expire at the conclusion of the 2016 Annual General Meeting,” according to HSBC company records.
HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation. For instance, HSBC Holdings has partnered with Deutsche Bank through the Clinton Foundation to “retrofit 1,500 to 2,500 housing units, primarily in the low- to moderate-income sector” in “New York City.”
“Retrofitting” refers to a Green initiative to conserve energy in commercial housing units. Clinton Foundation records show that the Foundation projected “$1 billion in financing” for this Green initiative to conserve people’s energy in low-income housing units.
The raw, unmitigated corruption involving Hillary Clinton and her Foundation is breath-taking in its size and scope and should have been targeted a long time ago by Former Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
But, Comey’s corruption did not end there.
Please allow me to review…
Former President Barack Hussein Obama and members of his Administration, including Former FBI Director James Comey, weaponized the FBI and DOJ for the purposes of not only spying on , but also sabotaging the Candidacy and Presidency of Donald J. Trump.
These Deep State Operatives, loyal to the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party, protected both President Barack Hussein Obama and Former Candidate Hillary Clinton, while using both the Bureaucratic and Electronic Tools at their disposal to somehow attempt to keep Trump from becoming President.
Having failed at that, they invented the fictitious Russian Collusion Narrative as both a distraction and an impediment, in order to prevent President Trump from fulfilling his Campaign Promise to “Make America Great Again”.
This “Secret Society” within the FBI, ensconced in their Swamp of Bureaucracy, considered themselves, as most of the Liberal Elite do, to be smarter than everybody else, “untouchable”, and, evidently, above the laws of the nation which they had sworn to uphold and its citizens whom they had sworn to serve.
So, is it very apparent that Comey has been a duplicitous, corrupt Political Weasel for a very long time.
…including the time he spent working for President Donald J. Trump.
So, for him to continue to portray himself as a guiltless public servant, who was oblivious to all of the corruption surrounding himself and all of his cronies in the Deep State Bowels of Washington, D.C. is the height of hypocrisy….a condition that seems to run rampant among Washington Bureaucrats, especially those who were members of the Obama Administration.
If Former FBI Director Comey is suggesting that Trump and the Republican Hierarchy are unethical and he wants a more ethical leadership in Washington, I would suggest that he begin with the man in the mirror…if President Trump had not fired him two years ago yesterday and taken care of that particular problem.
Until He Comes,
