Comey edits revealed: Remarks on Clinton probe were watered down, documents show

December 15, 2017

694940094001_5680661615001_5680652314001-vsNewly released documents obtained by Fox News reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings considerably.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI on Thursday that shows the multiple edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.

In an early draft, Comey said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was changed later to say the scenario was merely “possible.”

Another edit showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” This is a key legal distinction.

    I agree. The Obama nightmare will not be over until Sessions does a complete investigation including questioning all personnel and specifically using the latest “lie detection technology currently available” on the staff. If they don’t like being put under such methods too bad. If they refuse to be questioned under LDT then they should be fired. This is the only way the Deep State, left over by Obama, can be eliminated. We are in a Constitutional crisis and the Mueller investigation is front and center. There is no doubt Mueller is now the leader of the Comey Mueller conspiracy as the texts and emails of the members of the team are exposed. Lots of people should hang for this travesty.

    The Deep State FBI and DOJ is covering for lying, murdering, thieving Hillary Clinton. The FBI and the DOJ were completely corrupted by the Deep State Fascist Globalist Obama regime. The FBI and the DOJ can no longer be trusted. Both tyrannical agencies need a giant enema or they should be closed down.
