James Comey Learns His Fate After CLOSING Clinton Investigation
FBI Director James Comey shocked everyone yesterday by announcing that he will not be changing his initial decision to not recommend that Hillary Clinton be charged for her use of a personal email server. Now, having alienated both Republicans and Democrats alike, Comey’s future isn’t looking very good…
Daily Mail reported that Comey is facing increasing pressure from all sides of the political spectrum to explain his actions over the last ten days, since he reopened the investigation into Clinton. On Sunday, Senator Al Franken called for Comey to stand before the Senate Judiciary Committee, and he was backed up by fellow Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein.
“I think that there should be hearings, and I’m certain there will be hearings in the Judiciary Committee on this matter,’ Franken said on CNN‘s State of the Union. “We will have hearings. I’m sure that FBI Director Comey will be before us. I think he should be able to answer questions about this, and he should be able to control the FBI.”
Feinstein added that Comey’s initial letter “unfairly hurt” Clinton’s campaign and “changed the tenor” of the election.
“Today’s letter makes Director Comey’s actions nine days ago even more troubling. There’s no doubt that it created a false impression about the nature of the agency’s inquiry,” Feinstein wrote. “I believe the Justice Department needs to take a look at its procedures to prevent similar actions that could influence future elections. Now that this matter is concluded, I hope that the final days of the campaign allow the American people an opportunity to consider the important issues facing our country.”
