Was Barack Obama the man behind James Comey’s fix to let Hillary Clinton off the hook?

This week saw former FBI director James Comey exposed as a liar, colluding with Hillary Clinton during the US election to make sure HRC was not found guilty of crimes related to her illegal email server.

The question now focuses on whether James Comey was colluding with Hillary Clinton, the Democrat party, or was the collusion to let Hillary walk connected to a much higher office…like the Office of the US President.

National Review’s Andrew McCarthy believes Barack Obama was driving the narrative to insure Hillary Clinton got off clean from her email server crimes, in an effort to ensure that the Democrat Party continued its control over the White House.

National Review reports…

Let’s think about what else was going on in April 2016. I’ve written about it a number of times over the last year-plus, such as in a column a few months back: On April 10, 2016, President Obama publicly stated that Hillary Clinton had shown “carelessness” in using a private e-mail server to handle classified information, but he insisted that she had not intended to endanger national security (which is not an element of the [criminal statutes relevant to her e-mail scandal]). The president acknowledged that classified information had been transmitted via Secretary Clinton’s server, but he suggested that, in the greater scheme of things, its importance had been vastly overstated. This is precisely the reasoning that Comey relied on in ultimately absolving Clinton, as I recounted in the same column: On July 5, 2016, FBI director James Comey publicly stated that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in using a private email server to handle classified information, but he insisted that she had not intended to endanger national security (which is not an element of the relevant criminal statute).

The director acknowledged that classified information had been transmitted via Secretary Clinton’s server, but he suggested that, in the greater scheme of things, it was just a small percentage of the emails involved. Obama’s April statements are the significant ones. They told us how this was going to go. The rest is just details. In his April 10 comments, Obama made the obvious explicit: He did not want the certain Democratic nominee, the candidate he was backing to succeed him, to be indicted. Conveniently, his remarks (inevitably echoed by Comey) did not mention that an intent to endanger national security was not an element of the criminal offenses Clinton was suspected of committing – in classic Obama fashion, he was urging her innocence of a strawman crime while dodging any discussion of the crimes she had actually committed.

As we also now know – but as Obama knew at the time – the president himself had communicated with Clinton over her non-secure, private communications system, using an alias. The Obama administration refused to disclose these several e-mail exchanges because they undoubtedly involve classified conversations between the president and his secretary of state. It would not have been possible to prosecute Mrs. Clinton for mishandling classified information without its being clear that President Obama had engaged in the same conduct. The administration was never, ever going to allow that to happen.

According to the Gateway Pundit, the former FBI Director testified to Congress that he decided not to recommended charges in relation to handling of classified information, after the FBI interviewed Hillary Clinton on July 2, 2016. However, a new report reveals Comey penned a memo exonerating Clinton in the Spring.

There is now cloear evidence that the Democratic establishment, including the perjurer ex Pres Clinton and Attorney General Lynch conspired to obstruct the course of justice by “persuading” the FBI and the criminal leaker Comey to drop any charges against Crooked Hillary…

Criminal behaviour has no become the norm among Democrats ( the Republicans are not much better!)…and the shenanigans at the DNC prove this also….

When in Serbia guy named Tadić was finally gone a “saviour” named Vučić appeared. While most cheered I warned them that man whose lips have strange propensity to turn into vagina (which is nice but not when attached to that horrid head of his) can not be trusted. I also told them within months they will be longing after Tadić. Vučić (vagina lips) character is still ruling and one would have to look very hard to find non war time when Serbia was more fucked than today. It is also very educational to see that group of core fans are… Read more »

So, is the first Indonesian, poofter president of Amnesia still pulling all the strings behind the scene? Amnesia is now the most hated nation on earth, she is the Fatican hit squad, a totally deranged, mass murdering psychopath. Not only is Amazia illegitimately adopting the role of World Police Force, whether you like it or not, but keeps licking the arse of their Kazarian handlers, as they crush all who oppose their plans into the pancreas. Welcome to the New World Order! It is not coming, it is here! Yet, it seems, Amnesian citizens have neither the intelligence or intestinal… Read more »

You media guys STILL get this wrong about an “element of intent” being required or part of a criminal statute pertaining to this whole crooked Hillary affair. The act itself IS proof intent was present. I can show you 100,000 federal case law precedents which state this very fact of the legal world, it is so common in the federal (and state) criminal justice arenas we laugh every time (like in the article above) you get all hung up and try to split hairs on it. Furthermore, Rudy Guliana is right, HRC committed about 18 different felonies…..not just the one… Read more »

What I’ve ALWAYS found incredulous, even to this very day, is how the DNC can get away with telling the FBI that they’re NOT giving them access to their servers. Since when does a person or entity have the right to refuse a legal request from the highest law enforcement agency in the country?

The corruption by the so called elite and their various organizational entities in the US has no bounds.

The secret involvement of the US President Obama with Mrs, Clinton’s criminal public server actions as US Secretary of State, means that they can never be allowed to be ajudicated in public! So states this post. I wonder what former attorney, now congressman, Trey Gowdy would say and decide? I suggest that the secret involvement of President Obama must be made public in order to “drain the swamp”
