Jason Chaffetz Digs in on Comey at Start of Capitol Hearing: ‘We Are Mystified and Confused’:

  • Added:  1 year ago
  • Jason Chaffetz opened up Thursday morning’s hearing with a scathing takedown of FBI Director James Comey‘s recent announcement that he would not be recommending charges to the Justice Department in the probe into Hillary Clinton‘s private server. “I’m here because we are mystified and confused,” opened Chaffetz, who is serving as the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, “by the fact pattern that you laid out and the conclusions that you reached.” “It seems there are two standards,” he said, repeating the often-spoken line that the same charges against Clinton would result in punishment for other people. “This classified information is entrusted to a very few. But there is such a duty and an obligation to protect that — to fall on your sword to protect that.”
    Comey said this week that while the former Secretary of State and her staff were “extremely careless” the the handling of sensitive materials, it did not fit the bill for “gross negligence,” the legal standard meaning a person consciously and voluntarily disregarded the need to use reasonable care http://www.mediaite.com/online/we-are-mystified-and-confused-chaffetz-digs-in-on-comey-at-start-of-capitol-hearing/
    Watch the above opening address from Jason Chaffetz via MSNBC.Jason Chaffetz GRILLS James Comey On Why No Charges For Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton Email Investigation FBI Director James Comey testified at a hearing on the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of private email servers while serving as secretary of state, as well as the decision to not recommend criminal charges against her. When quizzed by Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz during his Congressional testimony Thursday, FBI Director James Comey declined to answer whether or not he would grant Hillary Clinton a security clearance given what he now knows about how she handled classified information. “The FBI does background checks. If Hillary Clinton applied for the job at the FBI, would the FBI give Hillary Clinton a security clearance?” asked the Utah Republican.
    “I don’t want to answer a hypothetical,” Comey responded, “The FBI has a robust process in which we adjudicate the suitability of people for employment in the bureau.” Chaffetz tried rewording his question, asking instead about a generic person who did what Clinton did. “It would be a very important consideration in a suitability determination,” Comey admitted. “You’re kind of making my point, Director,” Chaffetz said to intermittent laughter in the gallery. “The point being, because I injected the word ‘Hillary Clinton,’ you gave me a different answer.” He then proceeded to list off Clinton’s security failings: “If I came up to you and said this person was extremely careless with classified information, the exposure to hostile actors, had used, despite warnings, created unnecessary burdens and exposure, if they said they had one device and you found out they had multiple devices, if there had been e-mail chains with somebody like Jake Sullivan asking for classification changes, you’re telling me the FBI would grant a security clearance to that person?” “I’m not answering — I hope I’m giving a consistent answer,” Comey responded. “I’m not saying what the answer would be, I’m saying that would be a important consideration in a suitability determination for anybody.”
    “Personally I just think that sounds a bit like a political answer because I can’t imagine that the FBI would grant security clearance to somebody with that fact pattern,” Chaffetz said to Comey. I say what I said before, it’s very hard to answer a hypothetical,” he replied.

    Comey needs to resign or be impeached and removed from his post. It's clear that his actions in this investigation are politically motivated. There is a revolution happening within the FBI at this very moment against Comey and he won't be able to weather this storm. In order to save the integrity of the FBI as a legitimate institution, Comey must step-down or be impeached.

Something like Al Capone and Sam Giancana had in the good old days of Chicago.

    1-Hilary’s Lying.
    2-Hilary’s Mishandling classified information.
    3-Hilary’s Lying to him, The Main Lead for the FBI Director Mr. James Comey, He IS The Investigator for The FBI..And Hilary’s is suppose to be under Oath!
    4-Hilary’s out of her very Own Lying Mouth, her admission of causing the deaths of our people in Bangui Libya!
    5-The Main Lead for the FBI Director Mr. James Comey, in front of a news camera, Comey said they did have evidence of Hilary Clinton’s did sent Classified Information and Knowingly to and received back from people working and ordered under and by Hilary Clinton! And here now he says “We did not nor have they found evidence Clinton knowingly sent classified information!” He is lying as Hilary Clinton is...
    But think about this..Comey is working for Obama,Clinton Kerry merry-go-round! Hilary Clinton is above the laws of this land and people who have did much much smaller offences have went to jail with just Circumstantial Evidence! Just watch this video you will see the liars and the lying and the Lies!!

    1:19 Comey intentionally tries to mislead the American public when asked if Hillary lied to the public and he mentions he's not qualified to answer that? How can he not be qualified to answer that if he already knows she lied to the public. Furthermore, when asked if she lied under oath? He says "No, not to the FBI,...uhm not on the case we were working on." I thought you said she didn't have to swear an oath before being questioned by the FBI? What other case? Seems to stumble hardcore here because he mentioned earlier that people don't have to swear an oath before questioning to the FBI, because regardless it's illegal to lie to their questioning. Until I noticed this slip up, Ive come to realize that the honarable James Comey isn't as forthcoming as I originanally though. It would be nice to have a second round of questioning, especially with Lyin Lynch.

    The reason he can say Hillary didn't lie under oath is because he admitted they didn't put her under oath. This is such an obvious disgrace on the FBI, Hillary, the system and Trump is right. Come is not supposed to be political he is supposed to do whats right. He is part of the coverup and that is criminal. He himself has put himself in the position of covering up a criminal offense.

    James Comey is proof again that we have no government other than a completely corrupt group of lying criminals.  Lynch and Comey are as bad can be.  Can any of these people give a straight answer.  He talks about consequences.  The consequence of Comey's testimony must be that he is tried for treason.. But that can not happen because the Lynch lead justice system is completely corrupt as well.It is very hard for people to accept that thr Government of the U.S. is completely corrupt and perhaps the most corrupt and dangerous government  in existence today.This government in its entirety must be remove and replaced.  How to make that happen when the system is completely corrupt is a difficult question and the ansers are such that no one wants to face the truth.We now are so concerned with saving the planet.  We must be just as concerned with saving our country, We are living in a nightmare.  It is time to wake up and end it.

    Comey should resign or be arrested. First Comey admits he was not even in the bull shit interrogation that took place on Saturday. So how did he have all these bullshit answers for Chaffetz? Before this hearing people were saying Comey was a straight shooter. What a freaking joke he turned out to be. In my eyes Snowden should be allowed to come home. I also hope wiki leaks publishes what they have. Stop promising Killary is going down and publish the emails already. Oh and nobody is even reporting the election fraud that is already taking place. Remember when the citizens of Egypt got pissed off and millions of them flooded the streets? That is what we are going to have to do to take our country back from these criminals.
