(National Sentinel) Corruption: Rep. Trey Gowdy dropped real (mini) bombshell during a day of Washington media-generated “bombshells” laced with their usual Trump hate that should have gotten more attention than it did.
During Fox News “The Story” with Martha MacCallum, the South Carolina Republican and former U.S. prosecutor suggested there was much more to the story involving former FBI Director James Comey’s July 2016 press conference in which he laid out a substantial national security case against then-Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, while simultaneously announcing he would not recommend she be charged.
The conversation, as reported by The Daily Caller:
…Gowdy cryptically told host Martha McCallum that he believes “history will be much kinder to Jim Comey in that July press conference than the Democrats were.”
“I think he had access to information that, because he is a stand-up guy he’s not gonna disseminate classified information (though God knows everybody else is)…so all your viewers see is this meeting on the tarmac,” he explained.
“Jim Comey had access to additional information that I am convinced left him with no other choice but to make the decision he made in July,” Gowdy said.
McCallum asked if he was implying that Comey was pressured into clearing Clinton of all wrongdoing.
“No…he wanted to safeguard the integrity of the investigation, the integrity of the process, and I probably ought to just leave it right there,” Gowdy replied.
“Trust me when I tell you this, Martha — I know what it was and I have been a critic of James Comey in the past. But he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself.”
“I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands,” McCallum guessed.
“You’re very perceptive,” Gowdy confirmed.
Gowdy’s reputation is impeccable; he’s not a braggart, he’s not a liar, and he has unassailable integrity, so this, coming from him, is substantial. And while we don’t know precisely what it is that he knows regarding Comey’s decision, it was apparent at the time – remember that ‘chance meeting’ between former President Bill Clinton and Attorney General Loretta Lynch on that Arizona airport tarmac? – that there were at least some entanglements, including the fact that Hillary Clinton was Obama’s secretary of state and he knew she was utilizing a personal server (because he emailed her using an alias).
In fact, Andrew McCarthy, also a former U.S. prosecutor, says that email alias and back door contact with Clinton on her improper server is why Clinton was never prosecuted – because Obama was involved.
How come the discredited corporate media in Washington didn’t call for his impeachment? Or hers?
Of course we know the answer.
Washington, D.C., isn’t really a swamp; it’s a stinking, miserable, incestuous cesspool.
