There’s a rather diabolical reason for all of the obfuscation concerning Hillary’s emails and former FBI Director James Comey’s decision not to pursue prosecution. The question is why did he let her off so easily?
The answer to that question could shed some light on how it is that Hillary has been able to escape responsibility for offenses that any other person would have served time in prison for.
James Comey’s financial ties to the Clintons have a lot to do with it. They go as far back as 2005 when he was on the board of Lockheed Martin, which just so happens to be a major donor to the, now discredited and defunct, Clinton Foundation. Is there a conflict of interest? Definitely!
Right Wing News Expounds:
It would appear that James Comey was working with Hillary Clinton long before she was officially charged. During Comey’s testifying in front of Congress over Hillary Clinton, he pointedly refused to comment on anything to do with the Clinton Foundation and connections to ongoing investigations. That’s curious all by itself, but I have written before on Comey’s financial ties to Clinton. Before his time at the FBI, Comey was on the board of Lockheed Martin between 2005 and 2010. During that time, the company was one of the largest defense contractor donors to the Clinton Foundation. That strikes me as a conflict of interest… although I’m sure he would claim that it does not currently affect his handling of the investigation.
Regardless, I have long contended that Comey should have recused himself and he didn’t. He should have been fired long ago. Lockheed Martin was one of three companies to pay Bill Clinton $250,000 for a speech back in 2010. Just coincidentally, three days later Lockheed Martin was awarded a huge weapons contract. Comey was also on the board and a director of HSBC, the bank with close ties to the Clinton Administration and Frank Giustra, the controversial mining magnate who had his Russian uranium mining deal approved by Hillary Clinton’s State Department. Pretty dark ties between the two if you ask me.
During an investigation into the Clinton Foundation last July, Comey refused to answer questions about the Clinton Foundation:
FBI Director James Comey wouldn’t answer questions about the Clinton Foundation, as The New York Times reported in July. The Times wrote:
Mr. Comey refused to answer a question from the committee chairman about whether the investigation the bureau conducted extended to the Clinton Foundation, which has faced questions about donations from foreign officials seeking to influence American policy.
“I’m not going to comment on the existence or nonexistence of other investigations,” he said.
“Was the Clinton Foundation tied into this investigation?” Mr. Chaffetz asked.
“I’m not going to answer that,” Mr. Comey said.
It has been learned since his Congressional testimony that a complex web of relationships ties James Comey to the Clinton Foundation.
Comey even has ties to a London-based bank called HSBC which has had business dealings with Russia and the Clinton Foundation:
In 2013, the same year that he was appointed the FBI Director, James Comey became a board member, a director, and a member of the Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee for the controversial London-based bank HSBC.
HSBC is a bank with close ties to the Clinton Foundation that lists among its clients Frank Giustra, a Canadian mining magnate with ties to a Russian uranium deal approved under Clinton’s State Dept., and six other major foundation donors listed in a report by The Guardian.
The list of incestuous relationships between James Comey and the Clintons continues with his brother, Peter Comey:
Peter Comey is the “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper.
Interestingly, Peter Comey took out a mortgage on a home that is owned by James Comey. The $711,000 mortgage substantiates a financial relationship between James Comey and his brother.
DLA Piper is the number six campaign contributor to Hillary Clinton’s political campaigns since 1989 with over $939,101 in total contributions. It has also given between $50,000-$100,000 to the Clinton Foundation. If the name DLA Piper looks familiar, it was the firm tasked with auditing the Clinton Foundation.
After seeing the connection between Comey and the Clintons, it is totally understandable why FBI Director Comey was reticent on answering any questions about the Clinton Foundation and determined Hillary wasn’t at fault in her email scandal. Comey didn’t want to end up on that long list of Clinton associates who turned up dead under mysterious circumstances because he knows too much!
