    James Comey admits, obstruction of justice…by Hillary Clinton, NOT Donald Trump (Video)

    James Comey: Lynch asked me to call email investigation a 'matter'
    As the liberal left mainstream media was foaming at the mouth anticipating James Comey testifying that Trump had obstructed justice in some form during his testimony, what we did get is zero evidence of Trump obstruction, but of Hillary Clinton – Loretta Lynch obstruction.

    It was an unexpected turn of events and now drags the Obama administration into the Trump witch hunt they helped orchestrate.

    The former FBI Director detailed his interaction with Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch about specific language used in the Clinton Email “investigation.”

    Comey stunned the Senate, when he said that President Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch asked him to downplay the Hillary Clinton’s email scandal…


    Comey said Lynch instructed Comey not to call the criminal investigation into the Clinton server a criminal investigation. Instead, Lynch told Comey to call it a “matter,” Comey said, “which confused me.”

    Comey cited that pressure from Lynch to downplay the investigation as one of the reasons he held a press conference to recommend the Department of Justice not seek to indict Clinton.

    Holy shit! James Comey just admitted to colluding with Loretta Lynch to falsify his statements to benefit Hillary Clinton’s campaign.

    LANKFORD: Then you made a comment earlier a the attorney general, the previous attorney general asking you about the investigation on the Clinton e-mails saying you were asked to not call it an investigation anymore. But call it a matter. You said that confused you. You can give us additional details on that?

    COMEY: Well, it concerned me because we were at the point where we refused to confirm the existence as we typically do of an investigation for months. And was getting to a place where that looked silly because the campaigns we’re talking about interacting with the FBI in the course of our work. The Clinton campaign at the time was using all kinds of euphemisms, security 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 testify and talk publicly about it I wanted to know was she going to authorize us to confirm we have an investigation. She said yes, don’t call it that, call it a matter. I said why would I do that? She said, just call it a matter. You look back in hindsight, if I looked back and said this isn’t a hill worth dying on so I just said the press is going to completely ignore it. That’s what happened when I said we opened a matter.

    They all reported the FBI has an investigation open. So that concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about the FBI’s work and that’s concerning.

    LANKFORD: You gave impression that the campaign was somehow using the language as the FBI because you were handed the campaign language?

    COMEY: 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 it was describing that. It was inaccurate. We had an investigation open for the federal bureau of investigation, we had an investigation open at the time. That gave me a queasy feeling.

    Obstruction from Obama’s AG…

    Comey said that this troubled him greatly and convinced him, “I have to step away from the department if we’re too close this case credibly.”


    Still, we note that despite his admission that the conversation “gave me a queasy feeling,” Comey went ahead and followed her orders because “that was not a hill i wanted to die on…”

    Under questioning by panel chairman Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC), Comey said that he was uncomfortable with the unexpected meeting Lynch had with former President Bill Clinton on an airport tarmac last year. Comey said that meeting convinced him that the independence of the investigation was tainted with regard to the Justice Department and led him to go public with the bureau’s findings on Clinton.

    Then Comey added in later testimony that “Loretta Lynch had appearance of conflict of interest.”

    Five things spring to mind:

    1) The utter politicization of the Justice Department (from the top-down) under Obama, has now been exposed as “fact” if Comey is to be believed.

    2) Why did Comey think that a Clinton “Hill” was not worth dying on, but a Trump “Hill” was?

    3) Why didn’t Comey “memorialize” this conversation in one of his memos at the time… as he said he did immediately after his Trump conversation?

    4) So the only official to “pressure” Comey during his tenure was Loretta Lynch?

    5) What would happen if AG Sessions colluded with the FBI Director to alter their statements about a Trump investigation for political reasons?

    But hey, let’s spend the day ignoring that focusing on speculation about Trump and his “Russian hookers” obsession. We leave you with this…

    Comey said that meeting convinced him that the independence of the investigation was tainted with regard to the Justice Department and led him to go public with the bureau’s findings on Clinton.

    When Comey testified on May 3 before the Senate Judiciary Committee, he was asked about the Lynch meeting.

    He told lawmakers “a number of things had gone on which I can’t talk about yet, that made me worry that the department leadership could not credibly complete the investigation and decline prosecution without grievous damage to the American people’s confidence in the justice system.”

    Bill Clinton met with Lynch in June 2016 at an airport in Phoenix, Arizona. Lynch said at the time that “our conversation was a great deal about grandchildren, it was primarily social about our travels and he mentioned golf he played in Phoenix.”

    First, before anyone wants to attack this source, I will point out that the source is James Comey's mouth.

    Does it get anymore simple then this?

    Those words directly describe, the legal definition of obstruction of justice.

    That's not obstruction you idiot, and that's not a charge against Hilary it would be against Lynch since Lynch was the one that told him to call the investigation a "matter"

    Don't see how that's obstruction. Tip-toeing around in public isn't the same as obstructing.
