Trump & Co Defame FBI, Smear Director James Comey

Predictably, fact-averse, prejudice-spreader Donald Trump and his supporters assert “the fix is in” and “the system is rigged” because Hillary Clinton was not indicted over her use or abuse of email as Secretary of State. In doing so, Trump and co. defame the FBI and smear the reputation of FBI Director James Comey, a registered Republican who donated to the McCain and Romney campaigns, and served as Deputy Attorney General in the GW Bush Administration.

“No charges are appropriate in this case,” Comey announced. “Our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case…we cannot find a case that would support bringing criminal charges on these facts.”

All related cases that were prosecuted, Comey said, “involved some combination of:

  • clearly intentional and willful mishandling of classified information; or
  • vast quantities of materials exposed in such a way as to support an inference of intentional misconduct; or
  • indications of disloyalty to the United States; or
  • efforts to obstruct justice.
  • We do not see those things here.”

“I can assure the American people that this investigation was done competently, honestly, and independently. No outside influence of any kind was brought to bear…We did the investigation the right way. Only facts matter, and the FBI found them here in an entirely apolitical and professional way.”

Ask Republicans upset over this decision why they are so intent on defaming the FBI and smearing the reputation of James Comey. Their argument is with him.
