May 3, 2017; FBI Director James Comey confirmed in a Senate Judiciary Committee that his mandate required him to speak out regarding the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email trove, which he did, 11 days prior to the November 8, 2016, presidential elections.
Comey said he had no regrets: “It makes me mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on the election, but honestly, it wouldn’t change the decision, … To not speak about it would require an act of concealment in my view …”
Prof Michel Chossudovsky writes; “In four hours of testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Comey delivered his most impassioned defense yet … He told the panel one reason for the FBI’s renewed interest in Clinton’s case was that investigators found email, some classified, forwarded by Clinton’s assistant Huma Abedin to her husband, who was not authorised to see such information.
Clinton is reported having said that Comey’s announcement had derailed her election bid and that her effort was also damaged by WikiLeaks’ release of John Podesta’s (her campaign chairman’s) email, allegedly stolen by Russian hackers, according to Reuters.
Where Chossudovsky says; “It is important to recall the circumstances of the actions undertaken by FBI director Comey. The evidence revealed by the FBI points to criminal wrongdoings and corruption on the part of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton pertaining to:
- The use of a private email sever while Secretary of State,
- Corruption, money laundering and conflict of interest in relation to the Clinton Foundation,
- Meddling and corruption by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to manipulating the primary elections in favor and on behalf of Hillary Clinton and against Bernie Sanders.
- Bribery of a senior FBI official who was subsequently put in charge of the investigation into her email trove.
