Back in the good old days we used to hang traitors to our country. Fast forward to 2017 and not only are these people serving as politicians in our government, but they’re leading illegal acts of sabotage against our President and lying under oath. Comey has been caught numerous times lying his butt off, where we learned recently he predetermined the outcome of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email by not even investigating her. Comey might have been able to get away his antics in the past, but the felony he’s just been busted for is so severe, he could soon be heading to prison for his shocking crimes against our country.
Comey’s illegal antics began during his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee several months ago where he lied about Hillary storing secret intelligence on her private server. Over the past several months he’s come out of hiding to make contradictory or false statements while under oath, defiantly disregarding his position to uphold the law.
Now Fox News just got their hands of a set of documents revealing that Comey intentionally tampered with evidence in order to water down the FBI’s findings. And that is a HUGE felony.
Newly released documents obtained by Fox News reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings considerably.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI on Thursday that shows the multiple edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.
In an early draft, Comey said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was changed later to say the scenario was merely “possible.”
Another edit showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” This is a key legal distinction.
Johnson, writing about his concerns in a letter Thursday to FBI Director Christopher Wray, said the original “could be read as a finding of criminality in Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified material.”
He added, “The edited statement deleted the reference to gross negligence – a legal threshold for mishandling classified material – and instead replaced it with an exculpatory sentence.”
The edits also showed that references to specific potential violations of statutes on “gross negligence” regarding classified information and “misdemeanor handling” were removed.
Lying under oath or tampering with evidence of a federal investigation is a serious federal crime as spelled out in Section 1001 of Title 18 of the United States Code. A number of people have been convicted and sent to prison for far less crimes than Comey, including Martha Stewart, whose crimes were extremely minor when compared to what Comey schemed up with Hillary. The former FBI director could also be tried for many additional felonies, as this statute is used to prove perjury, false declarations, and obstruction of justice; all crimes that Comey committed in the case of Hillary Clinton.
It’s time for these swamp rats to be held accountable for their crimes. The FBI continues to prove just how out of control they are at this point. Rather than upholding their oath to pursue impartial justice, they’re essentially operating as Obama and Hillary’s secret police, continuing to serve as the foot soldiers for these crooked politicians.
