Now they find Comey unfit to lead the FBI.
FBI Director James Comey just cannot win! Yesterday, Kemberlee blogged that the Department of Justice will review his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Today, House Democrats are angry after a confidential briefing over allegations that Russia “hacked” the DNC and Hillary campaign chair John Podesta to sway the election towards President-elect Donald Trump. Those briefed believe Comey is “unfit to lead the agency.”
The Hill reported:
“I was non-judgmental until the last 15 minutes. I no longer have that confidence in him,” Rep. Tim Walz (D-Minn.), ranking member of the Veterans Affairs Committee, said as he left the meeting in the Capitol.
“Some of the things that were revealed in this classified briefing — my confidence has been shook.”
Rep. Elijah Cummings (Md.), senior Democrat on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, delivered a similar condemnation.
“I’m extremely concerned — extremely,” he said.
“I’ll just — I’m very angry,” echoed Rep. Mark Takano (D-Calif.).
Despite this, though, one anonymous Democrat told The Hill that some in the party prefer to keep Comey in charge instead of taking a chance with a Trump replacement:
“Do I have confidence in him? Not really. But I think he’s probably going to be better than the guy they’d put in,” said one Democrat, who spoke only anonymously to discuss a sensitive topic. “It’s like a rock and a hard place, but I think that’s pretty much where a lot of people are.”
Republicans left the briefing with a different tone from the Democrats:
“The FBI director is a good man who was placed in a very difficult position,” said Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.). “His boss [U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch] made life very difficult for him in the last year when she met with Bill Clinton on the tarmac.”
Last week, the intelligence community declassified a report that supposedly showed evidence that Russian President Vladimir Putin concocted a campaign to influence our election to favor Trump. The evidence shown to the public has a ton of dots, but nothing directly linking Putin. Plus, someone PHISHED the DNC and Podesta, making it harder to track the perpetrator.
It’s hard to take Democrats seriously since they continue to feign outrage since November 8, blaming Hillary’s loss on everyone and everything EXCEPT HILLARY.DONATE
