That was quick! A PAC called the Democratic Coalition Against Trump has filed a complaint with the Department of Justice against FBI Director Comey. The complaint accuses Comey of interfering in the election. Heres the press release:
The Democratic Coalition Against Trump filed a complaint with the Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility on Friday against FBI Director James Comey for interfering in the Presidential election, following the FBIs decision to open up an investigation into Secretary Clintons emails this close to Election Day. Federal employees are forbidden from participating in political activities under the Hatch Act.
It is absolutely absurd that FBI Director Comey would support Donald Trump like this with only 11 days to go before the election, said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Coalition Against Trump. It is an obvious attack from a lifelong Republican who used to serve in the Bush White House, just to undermine her campaign. Comey needs to focus on stopping terrorists and protecting America, not investigating our soon to be President-Elect Hillary Clinton.
For this to be a violation of the Hatch Act it would be necessary to prove that Comey was not performing his duties as FBI Director but was raising this to impact the election. Obviously this coalition doesnt have any proof thats the case but by making the accusation they help the Clinton campaign controversialize the announcement as a partisan act.
Coincidentally, this PR move dovetail with the official response from the Clinton campaign which opened with an accusation that Comey was bowing to political pressure from Republicans:
Upon completing this investigation more than three months ago, FBI Director Comey declared no reasonable prosecutor would move forward with a case like this and added that it was not even a close call. In the months since, Donald Trump and his Republican allies have been baselessly second-guessing the FBI and, in both public and private, browbeating the career officials there to revisit their conclusion in a desperate attempt to harm Hillary Clintons presidential campaign.
But all of this seems like the panic of a campaign that was startled and didnt know how to respond except to cry partisan. Since then, people seem to have calmed themselves a bit, especially as the left increasingly becomes convinced the FBI doesnt have anything that can harm Clinton. So, for instance, heres Trump critic Mark Cuban trying to stem the tide of panicking progressives:
Relax. Thats good advice for the folks at the Democratic Coalition Against Trump.
I’m thinking comey should release them. Call the witches bluff.
Releasing them now to the court of public opinion, would be far better than an immediate indightment.
We can jail the -—t later.
Comey can just play a tape of Hillary praising him in the debates...
President Trump should have each and every member of this group arrested, and their lawyers disbarred, for conspiracy to obstruct justice.
The elite establishment loves this. How long is the election season? The FBI will have a very small window to do their work.
About to be investigated by the FBI? Declare your candidacy.
Let's all remember that Caspar Weinberger was indicted just four days before the George H. W. Bush v Bill Clinton election, so election-changing indictments have been done to Republicans.
In Weinberger's case, it greatly benefitted the rise of Bill Clinton, so it's the height of hypocrisy to complain about it now.
But he chickened out, leading the Donks to nominate Hillary. How unjust was that Comey! I mean, if he were timely, they could have nominated Bernie instead. Or Plugs.
So the Donks went ahead and nominated Shrillary, and she pulled ahead in the false polls, propelled by the MSM.
Then Comey, realizing the polls were false, and fearing the worst (a Trump victory), jumped ship and finally did the right thing! Without allowing time for the Donks to fix their mistake! Oh the horror!
Democrat voters do not deserve a viable choice in this election !
I wonder if what they found constitutes ineligibility for the office. She should already be ineligible but we all know there’s some really serious issues with her.
Note: this topic is from . A timely blast from the past to a topic by the late 2ndDivisionVet.
And everything we have found in the four years between conforms the initial truth -
Hillary cried, People died.
Obama bragged, and the FBI lied.
