During Former FBI Director’s testimony with the Senate, Comey made some stunning admissions. He said that former Attorney General Loretta Lynch instructed Comey to refer to the email investigation not as an investigation but as a “matter.” Clearly this was an inaccurate spin of the investigation – Comey admitted as much. If Lynch’s request made Comey feel “queasy,” then why did he still do it?
Kellyanne Conway weighed in on the issue.
“Comey told the whole world he acceded to those wishes, it made him feel ‘queazy’ but he had no problem doing that. This is a man who admitted he leaked a memo to hurt this president and that he admitted to agreeing to Loretta Lynch’s request to downgrade, essentially, something that was an investigation to be calling it a matter,” said before moving on to take shots at Loretta Lynch, Bill Clinton and the Democratic Party in general.
“It also goes back to the tarmac meeting between Lynch and President Bill Clinton. It takes about four and a half minutes, not 45 minutes to talk about golf and the grandkids, a couple selfies included. I think those questions have always swirled around. and I think what Senator Feinstein as a Democrat did is very refreshing because the Democrats, now they basically say the word Russia more than they say America. They are obsessive about this,” Conway continued.
“They are obstructionists and they’re gonna have to go home and face their constituents at some point when they say ‘what was your message?’ They have no message. No direction. No leader. No compunction to try to cooperate with this White House or the Republican majority in both houses. Republican governors and Republican state legislators across the board,” she continued.
“There is no willingness to cross over and support what I would say are even nonpartisan issues like air traffic control and reform, Ivanka and her father’s workplace initiatives this week, workforce development. We can’t get people to say ‘hey, skills training, technical vocational education great idea. I will cross over and support.’”
Kellyanne Conway made some excellent points during this interview. Former AG Loretta Lynch clearly obstructed justice with the way she directed James Comey to handle the email investigation. She wouldn’t even allow him to call it an investigation when it most certainly was just that.
On top of that, if Comey felt “queasy” about it (his words not mine), then he needs to be man enough to not do it. He knew he was in the wrong when following her direction, but did nothing about it
