Comey: Too Political to Blame Russia

2

FBI Director James B. Comey reportedly advised the White House not to publicly accuse Russia of involvement in the Democratic Party email network hacks over the past few months, for fear that it would make the administration appear inappropriately partisan in the days leading up to the presidential election.

The Washington Post reports, based on sources “familiar with the deliberations,” that Comey eventually supported the administration’s decision to blame Russia only if it did not publicly explain the FBI’s role in the investigation. After Comey’s caution about electoral interference, some insiders were puzzled when he announced Friday that the FBI would examine new emails in the Hillary Clinton investigation, just 11 days before the election. “It’s really hard to square,” an official who spoke on the condition of anonymity said.

In an Oct. 7 statement, the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence formally blamed Russia for attempting to interfere in the U.S. election. The statement said: “We believe, based on the scope and sensitivity of these efforts, that only Russia’s senior-most officials could have authorized these activities.”

The New York Times reported Monday evening that law-enforcement investigations into a tie between Russia and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump have been inconclusive. No direct link has been found. Read more at THE WASHINGTON POST.

  1. The answer is simple: You cannot tilt an election by updating on the progress of an ongoing investigation, since the voter already knows there’s an investigation, and this isn’t a final decision either. But when the voter was told an investigation was closed you must notify him it’s being reopened. Don’t you think a voter is aught to know that he’s voting for someone under investigation???

  2. In clear words Comey is saying she should really be in jail and once she loses to trump the FBI will put her in jail. The FBI won’t put a president in jail hence the reason he is waiting for a clinton loss
