62. GOP Distrust of FBI

13 Jul

The House Judiciary Committee Hearing yesterday, July 12, 2016, was concerned with the final judgment on the Hillary Clinton email issue. (Please see my previous blog.)

FBI and other top investigators from the Attorney General’s office spent many months investigating more than 30,000 Hillary emails. The total effort resulted in a massive amount of data which would take many weeks to examine.

FBI Director Comey, who was originally Republican, and a dozen or so top investigators unanimously agreed that Hillary should not be charged with a crime. This was based on precedence, relevant statutes, interviews, and massive data. Director Comey testified for many hours detailing much of the data behind the conclusions. He is the expert on this information.

YET, Republican Congressmen on the committee rudely berated Attorney General Loretta Lynch for accepting FBI Director Comey’s recommendations after a lengthy meeting. They implied that she should have examined all of the data behind the decisions, and that she should testify on that data. Why would any personal opinion that she arrived at be of more value than the conclusions resulting from an extremely competent investigation?  The desperation of Republicans to ruin the reputation of Democrats is bizarre and ludicrous.
