Tom Fitton: Comey’s Clinton Investigation Was ‘Ham-Handed at the Least, Dishonest at the Most’
SEPTEMBER 05, 2017
“The office of the special counsel I believe interviewed some of his aides, including his then-chief of staff and one of his top lawyers,” Fitton added. “Under questioning, they admitted he began drafting the statement that he famously, or infamously, read in early July exonerating Hillary Clinton in terms of a criminal prosecution back in April or May.”
“This is before Mrs. Clinton was interviewed. This is before one of her top IT aides was interviewed, Bryan Pagliano, who later went on to take the Fifth Amendment I believe. And then you’ve got, I think, 15 other witnesses who hadn’t been interviewed, including her chief of staff,” he noted.
“So this wasn’t something where they had done all the work and it was just a matter of putting all the paperwork together. They hadn’t done the core aspects of the investigation, and Comey evidently had it wired,” he charged.
