Senator John McCain tried to get the perpetually “stunned” and “confused” Jim Comey to explain why he had a different standard for Hillary Clinton’s investigation and her potential obstruction of justice from that of the investigation of Donald Trump’s campaign.
McCain wasn’t perfectly clear which didn’t help with the “confused” former director. Comey’s ongoing excuse for not asking Trump what he meant by a “loyalty” oath, was that he was “stunned” and “confused”. He’s a very confused guy. He was also “uncomfortable” and we know he was “mildly nauseous”.
Comey was never going to answer that question anyway. He’s a weirdo.
Keep in mind that Comey wouldn’t let Trump off the hook even though he knew he wasn’t the subject of the Russia collusion investigation, but he did let Hillary off the hook when she was also likely obstructing justice during the email scandal.
If Trump couldn’t be let off the hook, why should she be? Wikileaks exposed a great deal of corruption on Hillary’s part. Trump was not as guilty as Hillary according to Comey’s testimony today.
McCain explained afterwards what he was getting at:
“What I was trying to get at was whether Mr. Comey believes that any of his interactions with the President rise to the level of obstruction of justice.”
“In the case of Secretary Clinton’s emails, Mr. Comey was willing to step beyond his role as an investigator and state his belief about what ‘no reasonable prosecutor’ would conclude about the evidence.”
This is the abbreviated clip.
This is the full clip.
McCain blamed his lack of clarity on a lack of sleep. We don’t know what Comey’s excuse is.
“I get the tense from Twitter that my line of questioning today went over people’s heads. Maybe going forward I shouldn’t stay up late watching the Diamondbacks night games,” he said in a statement.
What about this collusion.
