Perhaps Comey outsmarted the Clintons & Lynch

by Anonymous

 

Another look at Comey's possible intentions.

 Comey is not a stupid guy.  He may have been directed to "take the fall" with his Hillary announcement (we know that Loretta didn't want this thrown on her desk to preside over, even though the FBI has no authority to make decisions whether or not to prosecute crimes; they only investigate and Justice Dept decides that).  However, he decided to do something out of the ordinary -- lay out and disclose all of his evidence during his Press Conference.  He knew what he was doing and he knew that it would create a "firestorm" of controversy.  If he had just sent everything he had to AG Lynch, it might have all gotten buried or, at least, not disclosed until long after the election.  Instead, he threw it all out for the public to know.

 He also knew that it would cause Congress to call for an investigation so, now, he will not just be able to go and answer their questions; he made himself available almost instantly ( tomorrow at 10 AM) full well knowing that they will want to dig even deeper, hear about more evidence and have an open-ended Q&A for the entire day if they want to.  If he wanted to, he could have stalled this for a month just by saying "he's busy; send me a  Subpoena or let's schedule it for a convenient time.  I think Comey knew that this way the FBI's entire case will get a full public airing (and, since there isn't a prosecution pending, he can be candid and open about anything and everything).  If it went to the Justice Dept's hands, it would die a slow death there. 

Nothing will be kept secret now; we'll learn about things (such as Hillary having 12 private servers) that no one even suspected existed.  Comey can, literally, try this case before the public, just as he started to do laying out the key evidence just before "dropping the case", when everyone thought he was heading toward a recommendation of prosecution. The Public and Media will now get to know EVERYTHING that would or could have been presented in court if there was a prosecution (in fact, even more than what could be presented in court because there will be no rules of evidence holding him back).  This hearing could be extremely eye-opening.  Like I said, Comey isn't a stupid guy and he might have just outsmarted Lynch and Obama when they told him to "kill this case". 

A Grand Jury might have taken 6 months or longer to accomplish, if playing "according to Hoyle", plus it is secret, except for leaks.  Now nothing will be secret.  Again, Comey is not stupid and he might also prove that he is no one's lacky; however, he will just "play it straight"; answer all of the questions and not have to volunteer anything.  After all, Obama and Lynch can't tell him to lie to Congress.  He might look foolish laying out this case when not recommending prosecution but he might be wiser beyond our thinking because now he will just be responding to questions "under oath.

That's my take on this scenario.  This could come out to be the biggest fake-out in American history and, possibly, the only way to take down a liar and dishonest government official who is being "protected".  It might, actually, be worse than anything Hillary and Bill ever imagined. 

Who knows; maybe this will also carry into the Foundation crap as well.  We will see.


Will Attorney General Holder Face Contempt charges?

by Mat Staver


Eric Holder, the United States Attorney General and head of the Obama Administration’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is about to be charged with “Contempt of Congress” by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa.

Chairman Issa also declared that Holder and the Department of Justice “has blood on their hands” in the death of Agent Terry and an untold number of Mexican citizens after reviewing documents that indicated a DOJ cover-up in their knowledge of the Fast and Furious gun running scheme.  A 48 page “citation” is now being drafted charging that Holder and the DOJ have “obstructed and slowed” the Congressional investigation into the infamous “Fast and Furious” debacle.

Chairman Issa and his GOP colleagues on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee have long been demanding FULL disclosure over the role Holder and his Department of Justice (DOJ) cohorts played in the deadly Fast and Furious gun-walking operation.  

Congressman Issa is livid over the DOJ’s slowness and lack of response, deception, and potential cover-up activities during the investigation – and he doesn’t mince his words.

Issa has already labeled Eric Holder as a “hostile witness.”

Earlier this week, Chairman Issa called Obama’s White House “the most corrupt in government history.” 

Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD), ranking member of the House Oversight and Reform Committee, has warned Committee Chairman Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA) to “stop the witch hunt” against Attorney General Eric Holder.  Citing a letter from Cummings to Issa, Politico reports that Cummings told Issa…

Holding someone in contempt of Congress is one of the most serious and formal actions our Committee can take, and it should not be used as a political tool to generate press as part of an election-year witch hunt against the Obama Administration.”  A “witch hunt”?

Is it a “witch hunt” to hold a government official accountable for his unlawful and unconstitutional actions – or inactions as the case may be? 

The point is, we should be able to expect more of Eric Holder and the Department of Justice, as the nation’s top law enforcement officer and his team of officials, ALL of whom swore to uphold the Constitution and the laws of the land!

Eric Holder’s actions at the DOJ are truly a travesty of justice. I believe that Eric Holder’s tenure as Attorney General is one of the most corrupt and divisive periods in the history of the Department of Justice. 

But now, as is evidenced by Representative Cumming’s letter, obstructionists are pulling out all the stops to try and prevent Congressman Issa and the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee from formally charging Attorney General Eric Holder and his Department of Justice cohorts with “Contempt of Congress.”  This not a partisan issue!  It’s a JUSTICE issue.

From the day Eric Holder took his oath of office as Attorney General, his tenure as our nation's top law enforcement officer can only be described as one scandakous dereliction of duty after another.
