If there were any lingering doubts about the professionalism and integrity of FBI Director James Comey, he unequivocally cleared them up in testimony yesterday before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Simply put, Comey established that he couldn't possibly be more of a political whore if he was trolling the streets in ripped fishnet stockings and wearing a stained sandwich board offering "Blowjobs For 10¢."
In a bizarre proceeding which consisted of Republicans questioning the FBI Director, alternating with Democrats fellating him, Comey stuck to his claim that no charges should have been brought against Hillary Clinton despite the fact that there was an overabundance of evidence of guilt, and that any other human being would be harshly punished and prosecuted for her wildly inappropriate actions.
He also kept an admirably straight face as, piece by piece, he revealed that the FBI's investigation was a complete sham - intended to protect Mrs. Clinton's political aspirations rather than our national security.
For instance, when asked if the FBI cross-checked the testimony she gave the agency with the sworn testimony she gave to Congress, he said that the FBI hadn't bothered to because no one in Congress specifically requested that they do so.
Not that it would have made much difference - because when Hillary finally came in to give (ahem) "voluntary" testimony to the FBI, they didn't put her under oath. Still, Comey conceded that it would be a crime to lie to FBI agents. But... (you knew there was a "but" coming) there's really no way to establish if she lied or not, because the FBI made no transcript of her testimony. Her utterances have disappeared into the ether as surely as tens of thousands of her missing emails...and any number of national security secrets.
James Comey and Loretta Lynch (who pounced on Comey's "recommendation" and threw out any and all charges against Hillary) have completely dishonored and discredited the FBI and the DOJ, and established beyond a shadow of doubt that our so-called legal system - up to and most definitely including the president of the United States - is now little more than an incestuous cabal of unindicted criminal co-conspirators.
