After I finished the previous post, I got to thinking about that unexpected turn of events back on October 28, 2016 when James Comey announced that he was reopening the Hillary email investigation.
Clearly Comey was in on the plan to give Hillary a pass on her illegal activity.
So it bears asking why?
Why on earth would he risk everything to publicly announce that the FBI was going to do another lookie-loo at Hillary’s emails?
And this is where the conjecture comes in.
Now, in the interests of full disclosure. I am not saying this is what happened. And I’m not trying to pass off conjecture as fact.
I am, as they say, positing a scenario — and only positing a scenario.
So now that we’re clear, let the conjecture begin.
Remember why Comey revisited this investigation two weeks before the election.
The agents investigating Anthony Weiner on a totally unrelated crime stumbled across State Department emails on his laptop.
If I had to guess, I’d say these rank and file investigators were completely unaware of the fact that the FBI higher ups had fixed the outcome of Hillary’s investigation.
So when they found these emails, they immediately ran them up the chain of command to James Comey. They had no reason to suspect that this standard operating procedure would put Comey in a difficult position.
How would they? The rank and file FBI was not aware that the fix was in.
But it did put Comey in a difficult position.
If I had to guess, I’d say Comey would have loved nothing more than to simply sweep it under the rug and not do a damn thing.
But how could he?
There were too many people in the loop.
So if Comey swept it under the rug that would raise red flags all over the place.
He either had to act or risk being exposed as one of the architects in hiding Hillary’s crimes.
Think back to when Comey was testifying before the Senate in early May of last year.
At the time, he expressed that he was “mildly nauseous” at the prospect of reopening Hillary’s case. After calling it a “painful experience,” Comey admitted that he couldn’t conceal it.
That is one of the few things Comey said that rang true to me.
But what choice did he have? There were too many people in the loop to bury this.
So he did the next best thing. He made a big show of reopening the investigation. But before you could say “Bob’s your uncle,” he concluded it — saying there still was no evidence of wrongdoing.
That way, the rank and file who brought these emails to his attention would think due diligence was done. Comey would appear to have done due diligence – while publicly wringing his hands over it.
And nobody would be the wiser.
Of course now we know – thanks to Judicial Watch – that at least eighteen classified emails were found on Weiner’s laptop.
Which to me is proof that Comey only went through the motions.
The conjecture is why. And I believe he did this to keep the rank and file who were in the loop from finding out the truth — that from Obama to Lynch on down, the fix was in.
In other words, James Comey made a show of investigating while at the same time obstructing the investigation.
Now this is, as I said, conjecture.
But something about it just fits, you know?
I have no doubt that the last thing James Comey wanted was to reopen the case so close to the election. After all, he needed Hillary to win just as much as Obama did.
But he had no choice.
Too many people were in the loop. And the risk of someone in the chain of command publicly reporting that the Director of the FBI buried this evidence was simply too great.
So tell me. What do you think?
Do you think this scenario I am positing is plausible?
Given everything we’ve learned over the last few months, I think it is.
