Director James Comey: Critics Of FBI Clinton Investigation ‘Full Of Baloney’

FBI director James Comey is defending his decision to recommend against prosecuting Hillary Clinton, in an unusual memo to co-workers after the Labor Day weekend.

Comey insisted that the bureau’s decisions on the case were “honest, competent, and independent.”

“Those suggesting that we are ‘political’ or part of some ‘fix’ either don’t know us, or they are full of baloney (and maybe some of both),” Comey wrote in the memo that was first obtained by CNN.

Comey defended his decision to release the heavily redacted documents on the investigation of Clinton on the Friday before Labor Day weekend, asserting that the date was merely a coincidence.

“I almost ordered the material held until Tuesday because I knew we would take all kids of grief for releasing it before a holiday weekend, but my judgement was that we had promised transparency and it would be game-playing to withhold it from the public just to avoid folks saying stuff about us,” he wrote.” We don’t play games.”

He again defended his decision not to prosecute Clinton, assuring them that the “case was not a cliff-hanger; despite all the chest-beating by people no longer in government, there really wasn’t a prosecutable case.”
