Questions Never Asked


For John, BLUFSo here is an example of how the media is not interested in the truth, just the narrative.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




Here is the sub-headline:

The former FBI director, during his book tour, fielded plenty of questions about the behavior of President Donald Trump

From Polizette, by Ms Kathryn Blackhurst, 18 Apr 2018.

Here is the lede plus three:

When WTOP’s Joan Jones asked former FBI Director James Comey on Wednesday if the “smashing of cellphones and destruction of thousands of emails” during the investigation into Hillary Clinton was “obstruction of justice,” Comey said that he had never been asked that question before.

“You have raised the specter of obstruction of justice charges with the president of the United States,” Jones said to Comey concerning his new book, “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies, and Leadership.”  The book was released earlier this week.

“Some are asking, though, ‘Why wouldn’t smashing of cellphones and destruction of thousands of emails during an investigation clearly be obstruction of justice?'” Jones asked Comey.

Comey replied, “Now that’s a great question.  That’s the first time I’ve been asked that.”

Frankly, this says more about the Press than it does about Mr Comey.

Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
