James Comey Testifies that Obama AG Loretta Lynch Ordered Him to Downplay Hillary Clinton’s ‘Criminal Investigation’ and Call it a “MATTER” (VIDEO)

 

HOW IS THIS NOT OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE? BECAUSE IT WAS ASKED FOR BY AN OBAMA OFFICIAL FOR HILLARY CLINTON … CALL IT A MATTER.

UNREAL!!! We learned during yesterday’s testimony from former FBI Director James Comey that, not only were the news media stories regarding Russia and President Donald Trump false, but also that former Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch ordered him to downplay the Hillary Clinton FBI criminal investigation, and “call it a matter.” Lynch did not hope he would do this, she ordered him to do so.

James Comey appeared to work for the Federal Bureau of Matters. However, when Comey was given this directive, that was completely inappropriate, a conflict of interest and yes, a form of obstruction of justice, he only felt queasy. REALLY? In essence, he was running cover for Hillary’s campaign so that she could say, she was not under criminal investigation. But of course Comey is not partisan.

Transcript – NY Times:

LANKFORD: OK. OK. You had mentioned before about some news stories and news accounts, but, without having to go into all the names and the specific times and to be able dip into all that, have there been news accounts about the Russia investigation, about collusion, about this whole event or accusations that, as you read the story, you were stunned about how wrong they got the facts

COMEY: Yes. There have been many, many stories purportedly based on classified information about — well, about lots of stuff, but especially about Russia, that are just dead wrong.

LANKFORD: I was interested in your comment that you made, as well, that the president said to you, if there were some satellite associates of his that did something wrong, it would be good to find that out.

That — the president seemed to talk to you specifically on March the 30th and say, I’m frustrated that the word is not getting out that I’m not under investigation, but if there are people that are in my circle that are, let’s finish the investigation. Is that how you took it, as well?

COMEY: Yes, sir. Yes.

LANKFORD: And then you made a comment earlier about the attorney general — previous attorney general — asking you about the investigation on the Clinton e-mails, saying that you’d been asked not to call it an “investigation” anymore, but to call it a “matter.”

And you had said that confused you. Can you give us additional details on that?

COMEY: Well, it concerned me, because we were at the point where we had refused to confirm the existence, as we typically do, of an investigation, for months, and it was getting to a place where that looked silly, because the campaigns were talking about interacting with the FBI in the course of our work.

The — the Clinton campaign, at the time, was using all kind of euphemisms — security review, matters, things like that, for what was going on. We were getting to a place where the attorney general and I were both going to have to testify and talk publicly about. And I wanted to know, was she going to authorize us to confirm we had an investigation?

And she said, yes, but don’t call it that, call it a matter. And I said, why would I do that? And she said, just call it a matter.

And, again, you look back in hindsight, you think should I have resisted harder? I just said, all right, it isn’t worth — this isn’t a hill worth dying on and so I just said, OK, the press is going to completely ignore it. And that’s what happened.

When I said, we have opened a matter, they all reported the FBI has an investigation open. And so that concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about FBI’s work and that’s concerning.

LANKFORD: It gave the impression that the campaign was somehow using the same language as the FBI, because you were handed the campaign language and told to be able (ph) to use the campaign language…

(CROSSTALK)

COMEY: Yeah — and — and again, I don’t know whether it was intentional or not, but it gave the impression that the attorney general was looking to align the way we talked about our work with the way a political campaign was describing the same activity, which was inaccurate.

We had a criminal investigation open with — as I said before, the Federal Bureau of Investigation. We had an investigation open at the time, and so that gave me a queasy feeling.

LANKFORD: Thank you.

      Comey was an incompetent FBI director who turned out to be a sneak and a liar, a coward who has a sick sense of interpreting reality and purposely allowed himself to be manipulated by political pressure. There are issues of hidden crime associated with his actions. He has done a great deal of damage. Of course, none other than the damning obama appointed him to be the FBI director. That’s who he took his orders from.

    2. kashekamon on June 9th, 2017 5:21 pm

      Comey’s net worth is about $11 million, maybe more, send him a bill for damages paid for by taxpayers hard earned money! He owes us!

      Comey is as bad as Hillary for protecting her. And so are these late night hate rhetoric shows such as Stephen Colbert, he’s not funny, he’s disgusting. What ever happened to the good entertainment that was truly funny and laughable like Johnny Carson? I think Colbert has gone beyond the limits of what you can say and do toward the President of the United States. He’s become the terrorist of TV mind poisoning portraying himself as a comedian. Using public television to directly, intentionally, brainwash and spread malicious contempt.

      Now we’ve got Feinstein another f***ing Democrat still trying to cause more trouble. The real issue is who and when would there of been hacking into Hillary’s unsecured e-mails gaining access to our National Security with such ease, that is a high level matter of importance. But no investigation of that just a concerted effort to pursue the insanity of a dead issue concerning the White House. You lost the election, Congress and the Senate because you were destroying our country. Now because you’ve lost everything your trying to continue to destroy even more. We are sick and tired of your hate, bitterness and inability to accept the fact that your a failed sorry ass party that needs to be dissolved. For that matter, condemned. So just shut-up, dry up, die, disappear, who cares, just go away. Anymore of this nonsense needs to be considered as a threat to democracy, our country and a continual nuisance causing personal harassment to those that voted for and support Donald Trump and the White House.

      Any monies being spent should go toward prosecuting Hillary and refining our systems to protect us from hacking. Not pursuing issues for nothing more than vengeance and the inability to accept defeat.

      This guy is just another Social/Democrat criminal masquerading as a law man. Some more swamp draining is needed.

      From Obama down through the agencies, there existed a criminal enterprise. Trump needs to clean out hundreds of these people, if not thousands.

      [...] As reported at Circa, former FBI director James Comey told members of Congress in closed-door meetings that he confronted former Attorney General Loretta Lynch over her alleged interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation.According to reports, the meeting got very tense when Comey confronted Lynch about possible political interference in the Hillary Clinton email investigation after showing Lynch a sensitive document she was unaware the FBI possessed. Comey told lawmakers that during the meeting, he confronted Lynch with a highly sensitive piece of evidence, a communication between two political figures that suggested Lynch had agreed to put the kibosh on any prosecution of Clinton. WOW!!! Folks, this would be obstruction of justice. According to the account, Comey said “the attorney general looked at the document then looked up with a steely silence that lasted for some time, then asked him if he had any other business with her and if not that he should leave her office.” It had been previously known that Comey testified that Lynch told him to call the FBI criminal investigation a “matter.” [...]
