James Comey Should Have Never Exonerated Hillary Clinton on e-Mail Crimes
President Donald Trump said that former FBI Director James Comey “should have never exonerated” Hillary Clinton on the criminal use of her private e-Mail.
“No, what happened, he had a lot of pressure put on, and he exonerated her,” President Trump said in a TV interview that aired Friday. “Should have never exonerated her.” Read: Hillary Clinton et al are still in the government’s cross hairs.
President Trump also acknowledged that the FBI’s investigation of the former Secretary of State helped him during last year’s Presidential election.
“What Comey did, had good moments for me as a candidate,” President Trump said.
“I happen to have some lawyers that were unrelated lawyers, and they were saying, ‘Wow, she’s guilty here, guilty, guilty, guilty.’
“Then he gets to the end and he said she’s free as a bird,” the President said.
The former FBI director said last July that while Clinton and her aides were “extremely careless” with classified data on the server, he would not recommend criminal charges.
However, Mr. Comey announced in October, less than 2 weeks before the election that he was reopening the case.
Mrs. Clinton has said that Mr. Comey’s October decision cost her the Presidency.
Have a terrific weekend.
