It’s been a bad week for FBI Director James Comey. During his testimony before Congress, Comey offered various excuses for why the FBI had fouled up the Hillary Clinton investigation, absolutely none of them convincing.
However, Comey’s worst moment may have come on Wednesday, when he told congressmen, “I don’t remember,” when asked why the FBI had not looked into testimony that proved Clinton aide Cheryl Mills had lied to the FBI under oath.
According to Breitbart, the testimony in question had to do with whether Mills knew what a “server” was, at least in the computer sense. Mills had told the FBI during her deposition that she did not.
However, email was discovered that indicated that Mills, in her role as chief of staff for Hillary Clinton during her time at the State Department, had written to Clinton’s private staff about the server.
And why did Comey not ask Mills about this or pursue it further? Three words: “I don’t remember.”
James Comey is an honorable man, or at least I would like to believe he is. The fact that he has been willing to sacrifice so much of this honor on the altar of the Clinton campaign seems stunning to an observer like me.
It was bad enough when he decided not to recommend charges be filed against Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified material on her private server. However, he said that he would have a hard time obtaining a conviction. Fair enough.
Mills, who now acts as Hillary Clinton’s personal lawyer, would be significantly easier to prosecute. In fact, all of the evidence is there. Why was her perjury overlooked?
“I don’t remember.”
Those three words may be the funeral pyre for James Comey’s career. It’s sad to see that a man respected by so many has succumbed, in such a fatal way, to the myriad pressures of Washington.
