Story just breaking on WaPo that James Comey relied on false intel sourced from Russia in deciding to make his July, 2016 press announcement exonerating HRC, yet simultaneously in a personal indictment accusing her of shoddy security parameters in protecting her e- mails on her private server. The false info was received in March, 2016 and sat on till Comey finally briefed Loretta Lynch a month after his unprecedented July revelations about HRC's case's conclusion. He finally read in Lynch because the Russian sourced intel that had been used to troll Comey and the FBI had finally become deemed dubious and unreliable.

The reason why Comey ignored Lynch originally  was because the false Russian-sourced and fabricated e-mail implicated Lynch and Debbie Wasserman Schultz, through supposed hearsay involving a few others as conspiring to quash the HRC investigation...to not let it go anywhere. This, likely combined with the circumstance of Lynch meeting Bill Clinton in the Phoenix airport led Comey to believe Lynch was compromised and trying to "fix" the Hillary investigation.

The story and more details are up on WaPo. Read for yourself. I have very few words right now other than this is historic and devastating to credibility in our justice system, our democratic elections, and system of government, and will probably go down in history as a second day that will live in infamy for its intelligence lapse into incompetence if not malpractice, and its political destructiveness. So many angles and perspectives to explore and discuss.

If Comey does testify to a Congress or Senate committee expect this to be brought up. I think it is worth bringing up, I just hope it, in a valid way if applicable, supplements the Russian interference story, instead of distracting from Trump's obstructing of justice and the the FBI investigations into the nature of ties between the campaign/administration and Russia.

From the article:

Quote

Several of them said they were concerned that revealing details now about the document could be perceived as an effort to justify Trump’s decision to fire Comey, but they argued that the document and Comey’s firing are distinct issues. Most of the people familiar with the document disagree strongly with the decision to fire the director, but they also criticized current and former officials who have privately cited the document as an important factor in the decisions made by Comey and other senior FBI officials. Comey told lawmakers he would discuss it with them only in a classified session.

CNN today presents an updated version of this story. They claim that then FBI Director Comey was not in fact duped by the fake Russian e- mail and was aware of its inauthenticity. Comey supposedly testified in closed session to Congress that he used the existence of the false information as a pretext to go public about HRC's e-mail case and announce the investigation to be concluded with no prosecutable charges, but a negative judgment about her "extreme carelessness". The reason he gave for this was his trepidations that the Russians would release the false info themselves and he had to get the jump on that outcome in expectation it would ruin the FBI's ability to have public credibility in whatever determination was made in the e-mail investigation. So he chose to conclude the investigation somewhat hastily to preclude chance of a further Russian subversion of the FBI inquiry.

Yet to this day 45 still refuses to admit that Russia tried to interfere in the 2016 election. Things that make you go hmmmmm.

Just heard this on the morning news. It makes my skin crawl to find myself in agreement with Trump, but Comey this information clearly demonstrates that Comey is indeed a "nut job". Several experts, all of them in former high-ranking FBI positions, stated unequivocally that Comey's explanations were a steaming load of b.s. So he's either partisan, or incompetent, or bought.

That little smooch on the cheek he and Twitler exchanged should have tipped everyone off. The tongues probably came out later, away from the cameras.
