    Nets Censor Bombshell That Comey Didn’t Wait for Facts to Rescue Hillary

    Nets Censor Bombshell That Comey Didn’t Wait for Facts to Rescue Hillary

    DUH! They're liberals/communists first. They don't do news.

    Conclusion first, facts second. That, allegedly, was the mentality of ex-FBI Director James Comey in dealing with Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal. Yet this revelation was ignored by ABC, CBS and NBC on Thursday and Friday. Comey, who was fired by Donald Trump in May, decided against criminal charges of Hillary Clinton before 17 interviews of witnesses were even complete. Fox News, MSNBC and CNN all highlighted the story. 

    Yet, despite a combined nine and a half hours of air time on Thursday night and Friday morning, the networks couldn’t be bothered. To be clear, the reason for ignoring this damning development WASN’T Hurricane Harvey. That natural disaster (deservedly so) garnered a lot of coverage. 

    But NBC’s Today, a four hour program, on Friday devoted four minutes and two seconds to finding the best new coffee maker. CBS This Morning looked at the future of Uber for three minutes and 53 seconds. (CBS News covered the story, but online.)  

    ABC’s Good Morning America promoted “Force Friday” for two minutes and 17 seconds. Force Friday celebrates the release of new Star Wars toys. ABC is owned by Disney, the company that owns the sci-fi franchise. GMA made sure to tell viewers they could purchase toys on Walmart.com, a sponsor of the show. What was that journalists were saying about collusion and shady connections between powerful forces?  

    Clearly, there was time for Comey on the networks. 

    Fox News Special Report host Bret Baier found the news to be a “fascinating development” and informed viewers: “Senate Republicans say they have evidence that then-FBI director James Comey came to his conclusions on the Clinton case long before all the facts were in about Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.” 

    Fox reporter Catherine Herridge explained: 

    According to senior Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, FBI records indicate that former Director James Comey drafted a conclusion apparently exonerating Hillary Clinton the e-mail case two months before the investigation was over and before the FBI interviewed Clinton aide Cheryl Mills, IT specialist Brian Pagliano and Clinton herself. The FBI transcripts from interviews with two senior Comey aides are now coming to light after a records request from the Republican leaders on the Senate committee. They said it appears that in April or early May 2016, Comey had decided against criminal charges before 17 interviews were complete. Writing to the FBI, the Senators added, “Conclusion first, fact gathering second. That's no way to run investigation. The FBI should be held to a higher standard.” After he was fired by President Trump, Comey told Congress Loretta Lynch was the one who had politicized the e-mail case. 

    The ignoring of this twist in the Comey story is a contrast to the coverage of the ex-FBI Director’s congressional testimony. In June, excited CBS journalists touted, “historic” “history” that could shape U.S. “History.”

    Thursday’s revelations were less historic, apparently. 

    A transcript of the FNC segment is below:

    BRET BAIER: A fascinating twist tonight on the Hillary Clinton e-mail investigation. Senate Republicans say they have evidence that then-FBI director James Comey came to his conclusions on the Clinton case long before all the facts were in about Clinton’s mishandling of classified information. Chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge is here tonight to explain. Good evening, Catherine. 

    CATHERINE HERRIDGE: Well, thank you, Bret. According to senior Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, FBI records indicate that former Director James Comey drafted a conclusion apparently exonerating Hillary Clinton the e-mail case two months before the investigation was over and before the FBI interviewed Clinton aide Cheryl Mills, IT specialist Brian Pagliano and Clinton herself. The FBI transcripts from interviews with two senior Comey aides are now coming to light after a records request from the Republican leaders on the Senate committee. They said it appears that in April or early May 2016, Comey had decided against criminal charges before 17 interviews were complete. Writing to the FBI, the Senators added, “Conclusion first, fact gathering second. That's no way to run investigation. The FBI should be held to a higher standard.” After he was fired by President Trump, Comey told Congress Loretta Lynch was the one who had politicized the e-mail case. 

    SENATOR RICHARD BURR: Was your decision influenced by the Attorney General’s tarmac meeting with the former President Bill Clinton? 

    JAMES COMEY: Yes, ultimately in a conclusive way. 

    BURR: Were there other things that contributed the you can describe in an open session? 

    COMEY: At one point, the Attorney General attorney general have your directive enough to call it an investigation but to instead call it a matter. 

    HERRIDGE: But the new time line shows that Comey was drafting his statement even before the tarmac meeting. This finding comes a day after the FBI said it denied request for Clinton e-mails citing a lack of interest. Bret?

    New Evidence Reveals Comey Exonerated Hillary Before Key Witness Interviews

    And here is a key excerpt from Ms. Anderson's testimony:


    Q:  So moving along to the first public statement on the case or Director Comey’s first statement the July 5, 2016 statement.  When did you first learn that Director Comey was planning to make some kind of public statement about the outcome of the Clinton email investigation?
     
    A:  The idea, I’m not entirely sure exactly when the idea of the public statement um first emerged.  Um it was, I just, I can’t put a precise timeframe on it um but [redaction].  And then I believe it was in early May of 2016 that the Director himself wrote a draft of that statement …
     
    Q:  So when you found out in early May that there was, that the Director had written a draft of what the statement might look like, how did you learn about that?
     
    A:  [Redacted] gave me a hard copy of it…
     
    Q:  So what happened next with respect to the draft?
     
    A:  I don’t know for sure um, I don’t know. There were many iterations, at some point there were many iterations of the draft that circulated…

    Meanwhile, as a reminder of the timing, if Comey was already drafting a statement clearing Clinton of any wrongdoing in April then it came before any of the following interviews....keep in mind that many people on this list were also granted immunity deals...apparently after Comey had already made up his mind that nothing happened.

    1.      May 3, 2016 – Paul Combetta
    2.      May 12, 2016 – Sean Misko
    3.      May 17, 2016 – Unnamed CIA employee
    4.      May 19, 2016 – Unnamed CIA employee

    6.      May 26, 2016 - Marcel Lehel (aka Guccifer)
    7.      May 28, 2016 – Cheryl Mills
    8.      June 3, 2016 – Charlie Wisecarver
    9.      June 10, 2016 – John Bentel
    10.  June 15, 2016 – Lewis Lukens
    11.  June 21, 2016 – Justin Cooper
