Remember that suspicious tarmac meeting last year between then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton at the height of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server? Well, on Tuesday Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) hinted to Fox News’s Martha McCallum that the entanglements between the Clintons and the Justice Department are what led former FBI Director James Comey to forego pressing charges against Clinton last July:
“Jim Comey had access to additional information that I am convinced left him with no other choice but to make the decision he made in July,” Gowdy said.
“Trust me when I tell you this, Martha — I know what it was and I have been a critic of James Comey in the past. But he made the only decision he could have made with respect to appropriating that decision away from the Department of Justice and making the decision himself.”
“I only take away from that that you are suggesting that there were more entanglements between the Clintons and perhaps the Justice Department than everyone understands,” McCallum guessed.
“You’re very perceptive,” Gowdy confirmed.
Earlier this month, Comey testified that the infamous tarmac meeting convinced him the Justice Department “could not credibly complete” a fair investigation into Clinton’s email practices.
Now that there’s new leadership in place, could criminal charges be recommended against Clinton? Or do they still have too many friends in the administration?
