Remember that infamous tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton? During his testimony Thursday, former FBI director James Comey pointed to that meeting as what ultimately convinced him to disclose details about the Clinton email investigation to the public:
“Yes. In an ultimately conclusive way, that was the thing that capped it for me, that I had to do something separately to protect the credibility of the investigation, which meant both the FBI and the Justice Department,” Comey said.
“At one point, the attorney general had directed me not to call it an investigation but instead to call it a matter, which confused me and concerned me,” Comey said. “But that was one of the bricks in the load that led me to conclude I have to step away from the department if we’re to close this case credibly.”
The way Comey put it, he was awfully concerned about the credibility of the investigation — and by extension, the credibility of the Obama administration. Which is rich, given Democrats’ very long history of obstruction of justice.
Or what about Benghazi and the four Americans whose blood are on Hillary’s hands?
