    I don't think Comey is getting out of anything.

    He completely blew the investigation into Hillary.

    Any way you look at all of this information it benefits Trump in the end.

    He's just sitting up there smiling right now.

    Yeah! And we should just allow Trump to be the Second Counsel*. Come on. If there's a witch hunt, it's coming from you guys.

    The thinking Left used to know that the DOJ could not conduct an impartial investigation of itself.

    "The investigation of something as serious as official criminal activity must be carried out with the appearance of impartiality, so that the public can be assured that, whatever the outcome of the investigation, the matter is settled. And the Justice Department, for several reasons, is not in a position to give this appearance of impartiality, no matter what the integrity of its present officials. First the FBI is a part of the Justice Department, and there is at least implied collusion. Second, the Justice Department has in the past acknowledged that the CIA was above the law: there was an agreement between the CIA and the Justice Department that if the CIA General Counsel decided that a prosecution would require the release of classified information the charges would be dropped. Third, the Justice Department is currently representing intelligence officials who are being sued for damages in civil court—a conflict of interest. And finally, no matter how sincerely and attorney general may want to prosecute, there will be problems of maintaining loyalty and morale within the department among officials who may, if only my lack of vigilance, have been implicated by the legality under investigation."The Lawless State, The Crimes of the U.S. Intelligence Agencies, Morton H. Halperin, Jerry J. Bermin, Robert L. Borosage, and Christine M. Marwick, Penguin Books, NY, 1977. p.275.

    Short term political expediency generated a lot of memory loss.

    Well, we'll need an investigation before we can have that conversation. We need an investigation to see if there are any facts

    I'm really impressed that you were able to read 568 pages in just 90 minutes.

    Really impressed.

    We got them. Cleared twice already! You really want her cleared a third time? Are you just going to keep investigating this poor old woman until she’s dead? There’s nothing there!

    I guess you missed the part in the IG Report where it talks about exonerating HRC before even interviewing her?

    Of course you did because you are still parroting there was no bias.

    This is HILARIOUS. The deluded right-wing pumped the IG Report up like it was going to be delivered by Baby Jesus through the hands of a resurrected Ronald Reagan and it comes out and they go ape**** because, ONCE AGAIN, the FACTS don't fit their pathetic desperate narrative.

    Keep it up RIGHTIES...

    You can try to spin all you want but in the end the only "investigation" that matters is the Mueller Report.

    Trump praised Comey for the very things he fired him for and the report criticized him for!

    After reading the synopsis of the report on a few different sites, it pretty much supported what I thought was coming. As was said before both sides have ammo, but really the election is over and done with, can we move on?

    The fix is always in for The Clintons.

    “The documents in question are alleged drafts of indictments written by Hickman Ewing, the chief deputy of Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel appointed to investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton’s alleged involvement in fraudulent real estate dealings. Although others were sentenced for their role in the matter, neither Clinton was ever prosecuted.

    Ewing told investigators he drafted the indictments in April 1995. According to Judicial Watch, the documents pertain to allegations that Hillary Clinton provided false information and withheld information from those investigating Whitewater.”
    MCCLATCHY DC, Push to unseal the draft Whitewater indictment against Hillary Clinton gets court date, BY TERESA WELSH, SEPTEMBER 20, 2017.
