The outrage against FBI Director James Comey’s non-indictment of Hillary Clinton continues. This time it’s from a former governor and GOP presidential candidate.
Here’s the story from the Conservative Tribune:
“… Rick Perry has called for FBI Director James Comey to resign after Comey recommended that Clinton face no criminal charges for mishandling classified material while secretary of state.
“According to The Hill, Perry’s demand came after Comey was criticized by Republican leaders for recommending no federal charges against Clinton.
“‘For a man who prided himself on being a top law official in this country, I would suggest the man ought to resign,’ Perry said.
“Comey has a lot of explaining to do, because those of us who understand what was going on here – the Clintons were clearly trying to hide this server. They did not want that information in, and for Comey to stand up and make excuses for Hillary is absolutely and totally unacceptable.
“I think (Comey) has some skin in the game here somewhere. To protect the Clintons at this particular juncture is an extraordinary failure on his part.
“Perry was not too far from the truth. Comey spoke out once regarding the Clinton email scandal, dismissing the Democrat presidential nominee’s actions as ‘extremely careless,’ but nothing more.”
It’s obvious to almost everyone that James Comey didn’t indict Hillary Clinton to preserve his political career – and possibly his life. Resigning his post would have been the right and honorable thing to do. However, with at least four deaths in the past few months related to Hillary Clinton, Comey probably didn’t want his name added to the Clinton Body Count list.
Do you agree with Rick Perry that besides survival, James Comey has some political ‘skin in the game’ with the Clintons somewhere?
