FBI Director COMEY

WHAT DO YOU THINK WILL HAPPEN FROM THE HEARINGS WITH FBI DIRECTOR COMEY TODAY?

james comey

Do you think it’s too much on the part of the Republicans?   What do you think they expect to come from this?  Do they really think anything earth shaking enough will come from Comey that can change the no-indictment decision?

Is it just to further elucidate the lies and negligence on Hillary’s part, or does the public have enough information on that?

IS IT ALL POLITICS and IS THAT A GOOD THING?

Z  (he’s 6’8″ tall, so since I’m almost 5’10”, I’m kind of for Comey :-))

  1. They’re going to ask about the Clinton Foundation parallel investigation, Z. That’s my guess. And we won’t like what he has to say about that either. The Clintons are free – NOTHING is going to be done to them about any of their corruption. N O T H I N G !

    We will have to get rid of them ourselves by defeating Hillary at the ballot box in November. And THEN we could get a special prosecutor appointed to go after them like President George W. Bush should have done. But….. I doubt we’ll do that either. Sickening, isn’t it?

  2. I think that the GOP should just let this go — and let Donald Trump make hay with the issue.

    Nothing is going to be accomplished by having these Congressional hearings — except for giving HRC and her adherents fodder for their vast-right-wing-conspiracy screeching.

  5. Bocopro, the Left isn’t going to ever respect the rights of the free. They’ve even successfully infiltrated the Republican Party establishment to destroy it from within. Our only hope is to elect Trump to take a wrecking ball to it & build it anew. I hope & pray that we see it happen. If he’s not elected, then we were already gone as the nation we all once loved.

    I am with AOW. Drop it. Why go after Comey? He gave the GOP a gift. He could have given it to Lynch and that would have been the end of hearing anything about it.
    Comey will fold like a cheap suit. IMO.

    What bothers me most is that it’s entirely apparent, virtually inarguable, that leftistas WANT a corrupt administration and that lie, duck, dodge, hide, spin, and repeat are the new norm. If that weren’t so, why are they so insistent upon defending and elevating crooks to positions of high authority?

    * Nothing will happen

    * It is not “too much on the part of the Republicans,” but it is too late–Gowdy is a boob who completely botched a simple investigation–The only success may be that based on Comey’s information, Hillary perjured herself multiple times during the Benghazi hearings, but since JustUs doesn’t prosecute gross mishandling of top secret information, I doubt they will trifle with perjury.

    * The Republican Congress is exercising their oversight, but it will be portrayed as all politics by Hellary and her scribbling monkeys in the Infotainment-Media Complex.

    * Vast swathes of America don’t care and/or don’t understand this issue, so nothing will come of it and we get the corrupt government we deserve.

    * Nothing will happen — Hillary is the next president — The fix was in long ago. This is just bread and circuses

    I don’t trust Comey, and I don’t think anyone else should, either. He is one more political hack, you have to be to get those high positions and travel in those circles.

    Face is, my fellow Americans: We have a rotten, corrupt government–it is no better than that of Sudan, Venezuela or South Crapistan.

    My advice to my fellow Americans is to study up on how people survive and thrive in corrupt societies run by the Criminal Elite. Italy and Mexico would be a good start.

    AOW: Yes we do. My only difference with your opinion is that the GOP owes it to the American people to ask the questions, regardless of the mud that will be slung their way. They have discredited themselves, so none of it will matter, but they need to do their duty anyway.

    I can’t believe, as old as I am, that I am just now beginning to see what a corrupt-interlocking system it is that rules this nation.

    No one in government is clean–It’s like the mafia.

    I don’t single out Comey for particular censure; he’s just one more. He’s been in and out of private practice and corporate jobs, and if he wants any kind of future that involves anything higher than nickle-dime lawyer arguing cases in city court, he must play ball. Everybody at that level must play ball–The system is set up to suborn compliance.

  15. Silverfiddle, I feel the same way. I can’t believe it took me so long to figure out what has been apparent right under my nose for decades. Why else would the problems related to immigration, both illegal and legal, still exist? We’ve been experiencing these problems going back to President Reagan’s amnesty. He lived up to his word and granted amnesty to 4 million illegals and the rest of the government reneged on their promises to secure the border and restore compliance & enforcement of our immigration laws.

    We were all betrayed and continue to be betrayed. Republicans have had several opportunities when they’ve held the White House and Congress, to remedy this but did nothing. That should have given me pause. I don’t think I started to wise up to what the Republican Party really was until they savaged Sarah Palin. I wrote letters and sent emails to the RNC while the trashing of Sarah Palin was ongoing, demanding that the leadership of our party come to her defense. I received NO replies from RNC and the mud continued to be slung at Mrs. Palin.

    The final nail in the coffin for me was the $1.8 Trillion Omnibus Tax and Spending passed on December 18. 2015. A Republican majority House and Senate passed that monstrosity, fully funding EVERYTHING on the Democrat agenda; ObamaCare, Executive Amnesty, Illegal & Muslim Refugee Resettement (they actually funded this at a higher level than requested), Common Core, Planned Parenthood, etc., etc. etc. There was Majority Leader McConnell openly mocking us, laughing at us for having believed his promises to repeal and defund everything they’d just funded.

    That was it for me. Stick a fork in me I’m done!

    I don’t agree with many of you so I’m going to go easy on this.

    But after watching most of the hearing, I believe it makes the Right look far worse than Hillary, sadly. I believe Comey’s right in the fact that INTENT was what the FBI had to prove; and they can’t.
    We base all of this on a MOUNTAIN of Hillary scandals she’s got away with; the FBI can’t base findings on all of that.

    This hearing was preposterous….but I can’t blame Gowdy or any of them for wanting to expose Hillary with some of their questions to COmey.
    Sadly, the leftist bastard hacks are MUCH meaner and sounding more effective; things like “The Right is so frightened of their narcissistic racist candidate who calls Mexicans rapists and (etc) that this is all they have to fight Hillary with”.
    I found that HIGHLY inappropriate for a hearing…

    I disagree on the fact intent cannot be proven. When you have multiple servers, you delete gov-related emails, clearly there’s an intent of hiding things. It’s not for convenience. The most convenient thing to do is to use the gov’s servers. So there is intent.

    FB (funny, i almost typed FBI!) ; the problem is you can’t PROVE any ‘hiding things’;
    You and I, and everyone above, believes this, but legally, it’s VERY hard to prove. And we can’t decide these things based on past history (Unfortunately) of a person OR inference.
    The R’s are making VERY few points today that can supersede the decision…I’m very sad about this whole thing.

    And, by the way, have you noticed most of the Black panel keep bringing up civil rights/law enforcement problems? HOW INAPPROPRIATE IS THAT? WHAT SWINE!

    FB…I just listened to a little of the video; all his points are things we’ve all heard on FOX and elsewhere; SO, why the HECK doesn’t this panel ask those questions?
    There are some very good points…. “at the time,” for example. She said they weren’t classified AT THE TIME, Comey says some WERE. And that goes unnoticed?

    Ugh…..I just know one thing: this hearing’s going to do NOTHING.
    FB: You said “Just let Trump use ridicule and other tactics instead of having the GOP look bad.:” What do you mean by that? You don’t think the awful way in which Trump says things doesn’t make Conservatives look bad?
