Unfortunately for former FBI Director James Comey, it seems that more puzzle pieces are beginning to fall into place regarding his past involvement with the Clintons. Now the picture is getting clearer, as Comey’s history of covering for their crimes goes even deeper than first believed.
A new Twitter post is showing a newspaper dating back to July 21, 1996, in which James Comey closed a clemency probe related to a top supporter of Bill Clinton. It seems that as far back as 20 years ago, Comey has been covering up for Clinton scandals.
The newspaper proceeds to mention that federal prosecutors had closed their investigation concerning Bill Clinton’s grant of clemency to four men accused of bilking the government of millions of dollars.
James Comey, who was the US attorney for the case, said that they ended their investigation with no charges filed. “We thoroughly investigated it and it wasn’t appropriate to bring charges against anybody in the case,” he said.
Comey continued, saying, “I can’t really go into it because it was an investigation that didn’t result in charges. That may be a frustrating answer, but that’s the one I’m compelled to give.” Comey refused to provide any further elaboration into his decision.
The case in question involved the misappropriation of tens of millions of dollars in federal aid intended for education, housing, and business in the Rockland County Hasidic community of New Square. The men in question were accused of using the money to enrich their community as well as themselves.
The missing link in the matter is that the village leaders had aggressively courted Bill and Hillary Clinton, and the community had voted demonstrably in favor of Hillary Clinton’s Senate election – winning 1,400 of New Square’s 1,412 votes. This has raised questions as to whether Clinton pardoned these four individuals as a favor in exchange for their support of his wife’s political career.
In the investigation, the Rockland County Democrat Party records were confiscated, and many politicians and community members testified before a grand jury. Although no specific crimes were specified, legal experts speculated that charges would have included bribery and voter fraud.
The mastermind of the group, Chaim Berger, 76, ended up pleading guilty and was sentenced to six years in prison as well as ordered to pay more than $11 million in restitution.
Comey has been covering for Clintons for decades. Will THIS revelation finally make DOJ take action against him?
What this means in 2017 is that Comey’s supposed record of impartiality is far from stainless. This revelation comes in addition to a previous scandal which revealed that Comey had begun drafting an exoneration letter for Hillary Clinton in her e-mail server investigation months before he even interviewed her. Now that his long-standing history of supporting the Clinton family has come to light, his decision not to prosecute her makes all the more sense.
“The fact is, evidently, he already made up his mind three months before the investigation really got underway, so this whole thing was a fraud on the American people,” said one lawyer about the entire ordeal, aptly summing it up.
The truth is slowly coming to light, and as Americans continue to learn more about how deep the rabbit hole goes, Trump is appearing to have been ever more justified in his decision to fire the FBI director.
