When the FBI Director looks THIS bad in the face of strident questioning, you know something is amiss.
You may recall national security adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation, which promptly blew up into a massive scandal involving the Barack Obama administration.
Well, the always vocal Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. had some questions for FBI Director James Comey concerning this incident.
And man, did Gowdy make Comey look awfully silly…and decidedly guilty.
During Monday’s House Intelligence Committee hearing, Gowdy demanded answers to the intelligence leaks that have negatively affected the President Trump administration.
Specifically, he pressed Comey about the leak that led to Flynn’s resignation; he even asked point-blank if Comey was aware those leaks were inevitable. Then he added, courtesy of Western Journalism:
“We the American people give certain powers to government to keep us safe. When those powers are misused...I’ll bet you my fellow citizens are rethinking their side of the equation.
That US citizen could be them next time. It could be you. It could be me. It could be anyone.”
On top of which, Gowdy pushed Comey to release a list of government officials who had access to the Flynn intelligence. He even named a few officials to see if Comey would react.
For instance, he asked if former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former CIA Director John Brennan, Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch and ex-White House adviser Ben Rhodes could have known Flynn was caught on tape talking to a Russian ambassador.
Comey admitted that all of them with the exception of Rhodes had access to the info. By the way, the penalty for the disclosure of this information is a penalty punishable by up to 10 years in prison.
The whole Hillary Clinton/email/FBI fiasco isn’t over yet, either, and as her financial ties to Russia have been well established, we may as well revisit this insanity…which also included Comey, if you remember.
At this point, one has to wonder if Comey should just resign. The FBI has been looking worse and worse these past six months, and it doesn’t bode well for American morale.
