Well she is not in jail as Mr P pointed out. On the other hand, his letter to Congress telling them he was restarting the Clinton email investigation may have helped Trump. Certainly Clinton thinks so.Milo wrote: ↑Sat Jun 16, 2018 6:58 pmSo you think Comey's actions helped Clinton?cassowary wrote: ↑Sat Jun 16, 2018 9:04 amTrue. True. It is impossible to read minds and thus difficult to prove bias. We have the following facts from the IG report:neverfail wrote: ↑Sat Jun 16, 2018 5:27 amIt does not mean that there was any either.cassowary wrote: ↑Fri Jun 15, 2018 10:20 pmThe “conclusion” was that the he, the IG, could find no evidence that decisions made that led to the exoneration of Clinton was biased. But he, the IG, went on to say that it did not foreclose the possibly that there was none. See my earlier post giving the relevant excerpt.
Not being able to find evidence of wrongdoing does not mean there was no wrongdoing.
1. Peter Strzok promised his girlfriend Lisa Page that he will see to it that Trump does not win.
2. Senior members of the FBI team calling Trump supporters pieces of sh.t.
3. Unexplained delay in investigating Weiner 's laptop in the midst of the election.
4. Shift of resources from Clinton to Russia investigation. IG said he did not have confidence that no bias was involved in this decision.
5. Strong confidence that Clinton was going to win and be their future boss.
Under these circumstances I would say bias was probable. After all they are human.
I think Comey was out to help Comey.
He had a high confidence that Clinton would win. So he tried to ingratiate his future boss by announcing that she not be charged. He wanted her to know it was his decision and not Lynch’s.
His agents got the message that the investigation was just going through the motions. So they did not take it seriously. That was why they did not bother with Weiner’s laptop initially. But when the NY police complained, Comey had to investigate. He knew news will leak out and did not want to be accused of bias which he knew was true.
So to protect himself from such accusations, he wrote to Congress telling them about the reopening of the investigation. His agents again cleared Clinton as he knew they would thus neutralizing the negative impact. Or so he thought.
Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we first tried to deceive.
