For John, BLUF: Bureaucrtic self-preservation at its best, and least insightful. Nothing to see here; just move along.
That seems a little harsh, although plausible.
By the way, there is video at the link.
From Fox News, by Gregg Jarrett, 24 July 2018.
Here are three key paragraphs:
Based on Comey’s finding, Clinton should have faced a multiple-count criminal indictment, since the FBI discovered that she had stored 110 classified emails on her unauthorized, private computer server. Other people had been prosecuted for similar conduct that jeopardized national security in violation of the law. Yet, Comey – despite characterizing Clinton’s actions with the clear language denoting violation of the law – saw to it that no charges were ever brought against Clinton.Frankly, I like Gregg Jarrett, and his reporting. I have no reason to doubt this report, which is worth reading in its entirety.
Under questioning, Comey admitted to the Inspector General Michael Horowitz that he authored the May 2 statement and penned every word of it himself. But then he offered the implausible claim that “he did not recall that his original draft used the term ‘gross negligence,’ and did not recall discussions about that issue.”
Comey’s amnesia is preposterous. He would have us believe that, as FBI director, he memorialized in print his decision that the leading candidate for president of the United States had committed crimes, yet later could not recollect anything about the most important decision of his career.
Hat tip to the InstaPundit.
