It is never too late to get to the bottom of James Comey’s decision to tilt the Election in Donald Trump’s favor, with no time for Hillary Clinton to recover. With just days until inauguration, people are questioning the timing of the decision that propelled Donald Trump to the Oval Office and wondering, does James Comey have ties to the President-elect?
Unfortunately, until Comey or Trump comes out with a statement of some kind, it is something that the American public won’t know. But here is what the public does know. Comey sent a letter to Congress informing them that they have discovered new emails pertaining to the former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton’s investigation. The wording in the letter is incredibly vague and makes the discovery of emails found on Weiner’s devices seem much larger than it was.
To make things even more bizarre, at the same time Comey notified Congress, Trump was praising the FBI for looking into these new emails at a campaign rally in New Hampshire.
“I was just told The FBI is reopening the case into Hillary Clinton’s criminal and illegal conduct that threatens the security of the United States of America. Hillary Clinton’s corruption is on a scale that we have never seen before…I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and the Department of Justice are now willing and have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made,” Trump told the crowd.
The timing of Comey’s announcement, as millions of Americans headed to the polls to partake in early voting, could not have been more confusing and critical. One can’t help but to think about the potential relationship between Trump and Comey.
One person who definitely does have ties to Comey is former Mayor of New York Rudy Giuliani. Giuliani was Comey’s boss when Giuliani was the U.S. Attorney of New York’s southern district. At that time Giuliani hired Comey in 1987 as an assistant, according to New York Magazine. Giuliani was a top advisor for the Trump campaign, which gave Trump a connection to Comey.
This prompted Senate minority leader Harry Reid to write a scathing letter to FBI Director James Comey, warning Comey that he may have broken the law.
“I am writing to inform you that my office has determined that these actions may violate the Hatch Act, which bars FBI officials from using their official authority to influence an election. Through your partisan actions, you may have broken the law.”
But it’s far from the biggest charge in Reid’s letter.
“In my communications with you and other top officials in the national security community, it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government — a foreign interest openly hostile to the United States, which Trump praises at every opportunity. The public has a right to know this information. I wrote to you months ago calling for this information to be released to the public. There is no danger to American interests from releasing it. And yet, you continue to resist calls to inform the public of this critical information.”
Harry Reid is saying that the FBI not only knows of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, but that the FBI is deliberately shielding this information, while misdirecting public attention toward the email ‘scandal’ without any valid information.
If Reid is right, then James Comey is guilty of something that goes far beyond just using his office to provide a competitive advantage to a candidate. Comey used the full weight of the FBI to swing the election to a man he knows is in service to a foreign power.
This brings a pressing question everyone should be asking: Has anyone looked into James Comey’s bank accounts after the election?
