(TeaParty.org) – You know there is a ton of corruption going down when investigators are investigating the investigation.
GOP Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida will be holding a press conference with eight other congressmen in order to call for an investigation into the suspicious way James Comey handled his investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, and the way he ignored perjury charges against Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills.
They also demand to know why Comey started his letter of exoneration of Hillary before any of the main witnesses, including Hillary, were even questioned. They’re also very curious about Peter Strzok and his obvious bias towards Hillary Clinton.
ANNOUNCEMENT: Holding a Press Conference tomorrow, alongside 8 Congressmen, calling for Investigation on @FBI’s “Special” Treatment of @HillaryClinton. Joining: @Jim_Jordan @RepMarkMeadows @RepDeSantis @RepTedYoho @RepScottPerry @CongressmanHice @RepAndyBiggsAZ @replouiegohmert

There seems to be many irregularities in Comey’s testimony and the accusations he’s made. Take for instance his accusation that Loretta Lynch tried to get him to place a different label on the investigation, and instead just call it a “matter.”
Former FBI Director James Comey revealed in Senate testimony Thursday that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch directed him to describe the Hillary Clinton email probe as a “matter” and not an “investigation.”
He also said that the directive, combined with Lynch’s unusual Arizona tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton, led him to make his independent announcement regarding the Clinton email probe last July.
Here’s the thing: Comey was rightly trying to cast aspersions on the motives of Loretta Lynch, but disregarded his own actions. What do you think is worse? Lynch wanting the word changed from “investigation” to “matter,” or Comey changing “guilty” to “not guilty”? This isn’t even a remotely close comparison.
Comey said that Lynch gave him a queasy feeling … but what Comey did will make your skin crawl.
Possibly the most important part of this probe would be the part that Peter Strzok played. He interviewed many of the main witnesses, including Abedin and Mills, who testified that they didn’t know about Hillary’s private server until she had left the State Department. That was definitely a lie on both of their parts. Emails that were released proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that both knew about the server while all three were still at the State Department.
Strzok was also the one who questioned Michael Flynn. Don’t you find it curious that Strzok brought charges against Flynn for lying about a meeting that was perfectly legal, but gave both Abedin and Mills a pass about lying about the server which compromised (or at least could have compromised) national security?
Sure, Strzok was demoted from Mueller’s investigation team for sending anti-Trump emails, but don’t give Mueller any credit for that – he was just trying to save his fishing expedition. Then he moved to cover up the Strzok affair, just like he covered up the Hillary Uranium bribery case.
President Trump fired Comey over what he considered to be an inept investigation into Hillary. It turns out President Trump was completely wrong. We need to change the word “inept” to “corrupt.” Funny thing is, both Comey and Mueller have accused the president of obstruction of justice, which he didn’t commit but both of them participated in real life obstruction concerning Hillary Clinton.
The $64,000 question is, will Attorney General Jeff Sessions take action on the demands of the nine congressmen, or will he punt on first down, like he has done many times since taking office? Are we a country of laws or a country of privilege? We’re about to find out.
