Former FBI Director James Comey appeared on “The View” on Wednesday to strum up more liberal sympathy as he tries to play the martyr. What he ended up letting slip during the heated appearance, however, sent Hillary Clinton into hiding.
Former Secretary of State and twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is undoubtedly ready for all of the controversy surrounding the investigation into her use of a private email server to go away. This was an egregious crime, though, especially for one of the most powerful officials in the U.S. government — it’s not going to just go away.
Hillary may have been cleared by the FBI after putting national security at risk through her use of a private server, but questions still remain with regards to whether or not justice was served and why she would do something so incredibly stupid. Why put sensitive government secrets at risk if you’re not trying to hide something?
Crooked Hillary was unable to escape the discussion surrounding her private server and the investigation into her crime on Wednesday when former FBI director James Comey appeared on “The View,” in part to hock his new book. Hillary infamously blamed Comey for her humiliating election loss after President Donald Trump took the White House, despite the fact that nearly every single media outlet predicted he would not.
Hillary Clinton … cast blame for her surprise election loss on the announcement by the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, days before the election that he had revived the inquiry into her use of a private email server.
In her most extensive remarks since she conceded the race to Donald J. Trump … Mrs. Clinton told donors on a 30-minute conference call that Mr. Comey’s decision to send a letter to Congress about the inquiry 11 days before Election Day had thrust the controversy back into the news and had prevented her from ending the campaign with an optimistic closing argument.
“There are lots of reasons why an election like this is not successful,” Mrs. Clinton said, according to a donor who relayed the remarks. But, she added, “our analysis is that Comey’s letter raising doubts that were groundless, baseless, proven to be, stopped our momentum.” [Source: The New York Times]
Hillary Clinton surely was not happy to see her nemesis James Comey being fawned over by the women of “The View” on Wednesday. According to The Daily Caller, Comey ended his appearance on “The View” by saying he “can’t answer” if “Hillary Clinton got justice” in 2016.
“After everything,” host Whoopi Goldberg began as she posed a question to Comey near the end of the broadcast, asking, “do you think Hillary Clinton got justice?”
“In the sense of — from the FBI and the Justice Department?” Comey responded. “I think she did. Whether in a broader sense if she was treated fairly? I can’t answer. That’s a serious question.”
Just a few minutes later, Comey stated that if he “could say one thing to Hillary Clinton, it would be” to read the two chapters in his book that revolve around her. “I know you feel I have shivved you,” he said. “But I think you may feel differently if you read those two chapters.” He also requested that President Donald Trump read the book.
Of course, Whoopi asking if Hillary ultimately got justice is quite the loaded question and anyone who thought James Comey might have answered it objectively is smoking something. If justice were truly served, Hillary wouldn’t have just lost the presidential election in 2016, she would have been thrown behind bars for her many crimes. After all, government employees guilty of far less have been made to serve time.
James Comey is a slimeball trying to save what is left of his reputation and earning potential via a salacious new book, even though his credibility is shot. I’ve got news for him, President Donald Trump isn’t going to be reading any of it — he’s too busy draining the swamp, of which Comey was a part for decades.
