The following excellent article is a perfect example of being two-faced when FBI Director sent out two letters–one for Congress and one to his staff. The article is on the Daily News Bin of October 28, 2016 titled “FBI Director James Comey Caught Admitting He Knew His Letter Would Create a ‘Misleading Impression'” and I quote:
Even as FBI Director James Comey was sending a letter to Congress that he knew would become public, he also privately sent a different letter to members of his own staff. Hours later, now that Comey’s public letter has been exposed as intentionally misleading and has created a firestorm of public and legal backlash against him that will almost certainly cost him his job, it turns out Comey privately admitted that he was fully aware his public letter would mislead the public.
Comey’s letter sent to Congress created the false impression that the FBI was reopening its long-ago-finished investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, for which she has already been fully exonerated. Comey made a point of failing to admit that this new investigation is actually into the behavior of former Congressman Anthony Weiner, which the media subsequently dug up on its own. Now that CNN is calling on Comey to resign from the FBI, and MSNBC is outright accusing him of intentionally trying to rig a Presidential election, his private letter to FBI employees essentially serves as a confession of guilt.
“Given that we don’t know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails, I don’t want to create a misleading impression,” James Comey wrote in a private letter to his staff just before he released his public letter. “In trying to strike that balance, in a brief letter and in the middle of the election season, there is significant risk of being misunderstood.”
In so doing, FBI Director James Comey admitted in his own words that he was fully aware that “a brief letter and in the middle of the election season” would likely cause the “misleading impression” he had referenced. This now leaves Comey no ground for claiming that he didn’t know his letter to Congress would sabotage the Presidential election. This hands House Democrats the smoking gun they’ve been looking for, in terms of forcing out of office. If you enjoy Daily News Bin, consider making a contribution:”
(Why don’t I read this story on mainstream media? James Comey admitting he knew it would ‘create a misleading impression’? And they call this a democracy? Republican FBI Director, James Comey, should be fired but instead all you hear about are Hillary Clinton’s emails for the last two years and the FBI has never found anything. As of now, nothing is happening. The voter is left thinking that Hillary Clinton is the bad person when the FBI Director should be apologizing to the voters BEFORE the election for misleading them.
