Because it was a controlled investigation. I called it two years ago: The only thing that would come of the FBI investigation would be the demise of Hillary's campaign. The biggest lie in U.S. politics is that Hillary wanted to be president. She intentionally dragged Obama across the finish line, in 2008, and she intentionally dragged Trump across the finish line in 2016. People are so devoted to their partisan loyalty (and hate) that they cannot see the truth: the two parties have been colluding for decades thanks to the Clinton/Bush alliance that started in Mena, Arkansas. The question is, why did they want a powder keg, like Trump, to be president? I suspect there is some scary stuff coming our way...and the war profiteers are going to love it.

Her husband talked to his boss and squashed it but it was too late to make a difference. She had already lost the election. No one lost the election except Hillary Clinton herself. Comey should simply step down because of the entire thing. It would be better for him in the end.


No please let him flip on them first i don't care what happens to him after that. Comey knows a lot more than he lets on but every person who tried to stood up to the Leprechaun and her cronies died under mysterious circumstances. We all know it's practically commiting suicide turning against the Clinton empire. That's one of the many reasons why i hate them so much. Everyone knows they are rotten to the core but we can't do sh!t to take them down. Someone needs to go nuclear on their asses but a lot of people will certainly die in the process too. It's a two-sided sword.

I was perplexed to hear today that the investigation into Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin has been closed.

Did I hear that right?

Comey seemed to minimize the fact that Abedin sent tens of thousands of documents to Weiner to print for her, as if that was some benign thing. I think I heard Comey answer that he didn't think Weiner read any of those that may have been classified!!!!!!

Were there no printers at the offices Abedin worked in? The Clinton Foundation could afford private server equipment, but couldn't afford a printer for Huma?

Comey seems too naive to me and too concerned with the reputations of agencies and high-level officials. That concern should not take preference over truth and justice.

I'm still majorly nauseous about the past election and that the best candidate did not win.


Gary Johnson...?

And I bet Weiner faces no charges for sexting the 15 year old either. That investigation was just part of 'the plan.'

...and I bet he and Huma reconcile.

Blerg. The FBI is so corrupt -- from the top down.

"Closed" could mean "completed" I suppose. I didn't hear his testimony -- did he say that it was closed and there would be no referral for prosecution?

And I bet you are 100% correct.

We have a very tangled web of deceit all the way around.

Watched most of the hearing live, and I must say that I would not want to be in Comey's shoes. He's walking a real tightrope for sure. I'll give him credit for his candor and guts.

Couple of things stood out to me:
1. The crux of the decision to not prosecute Hillary and co. seems to have rested on the inability prove intent. Like he said last summer, they were definitely irresponsible (forget the exact phrase he used). But they needed to be able to prove there was willful, intentional mishandling of classified material. Comey indicated they couldn't make that case.

2. It's pretty clear there's growing interest in the need for a special prosecutor to investigate the Russian collusion story. Even w/the AG's recusal, the FBI is going to have to present their case to the deputy AG, and we'd have to trust that individual to act in an apolitical manner. Given how high up this could go, the stakes are clearly just as high.

Some people keep demanding to see the evidence, and for lack of that evidence, they're insisting the whole Russian collusion story is fake news. Sorry, but the FBI is not about to divulge anything at this point. This whole thing has the potential to be bigger than Watergate and Iran/Contra combined. They pressed Comey from just about every angle, and he knew exactly what he could and couldn't say. Consider for a moment the size and scope of such an investigation. We're talking multiple FISA warrants for at least one individual (Page, I believe), reams of data to be analyzed--meetings, phone calls, etc., a large cast of characters with known business dealings in Russia (who all just happened to forget about meetings with certain Russians--what are the odds of that being a coincidence?), Russian oligarchs, intelligence operatives, the Russian mob, at least one individual shopping for immunity deals, and so on. I can't even begin to imagine what the process for working through all of that must be like. I just hope they get it right and that there's some level of transparency with the American people.

Ha...well, what you call 'candor,' I call 'lies.'

I believe he invoked that age old unbeatable "criminal intent" defense....You know they one that only works if you're one of the Elite.

Let some poor man do the same thing and try and say he had no intention of breaking the law....

LAUGHABLE

To clarify, I'm only talking about 'candor' with respect to this particular hearing. Comey admitted how much he wrestled with the decision to reopen the email case based on what was presented to him. He knew it wasn't going to go well for him personally, but he also knew he couldn't keep it under wraps. I think he genuinely feels badly that there could have been some impact on the election (certainly not the nail in the coffin, though, in my estimate). This was a "damned if you do, damned if you don't" type of situation, and I think he described his options as 'bad and catastrophic.'

Based on what I've heard, I'm glad it's Comey at the helm here and not J. Edgar Hoover. (Opinion subject to change without notice, however.)

Like those laptops they took from Weiner and abdien? Interesting how we didn't here much out about that.

How long do we have to keep him around.

He was the "Monica Lewinsky"of the 2016 Election.

He should resign. Then get his dress cleaned...

sounds like Comey may have been monitoring ATS....Intelligence porn. I read that the intelligence department often monitors conspiracy sites like ATS. It gives them ideas. I don't think they monitor some of the weird ones though.

Grassley had some interesting information in his opening comments.
They are investigating the source and who requested the Trump/Russia "dossier" published by BuzzFeed.
The source has refused to testify about this.
The dossier was proven false and is the subject of a lawsuit against BuzzFeed.

He said there was an email revealed from Lynch saying that she would protect Hillary and not let the FBI go "too far".
He went over the previous Comey testimony about Clinton's actions, and said the FBI actions seemed biased.

Grassley's line of questioning about Lynch's email saying that she would protect Clinton is pretty damning to Lynch.
Of course Comey could not answer questions about that because it was "classified".

Ill tell you might really made him nauseous is knowing shes Guilty as # and he can't even dream of "recommending" Criminal Charges against her because he knows shes being protected by the powers that be.
