While no-one has yet to see the actual Inspector General Mike Horowitz report outlining how the DOJ and FBI handled the Hillary Clinton email investigation, the media are beginning to shape the narrative.
In a summary of Bill Priestap’s testimony, via The Hill, the narrative begins by focusing on James Comey: “Priestap “completely” backed up everything that Comey said, according to a source familiar with his testimony.” The narrative construct gains clarity with a report from ABC highlight James Comey as “insubordinate”:
(Via ABC) The Justice Department’s internal watchdog has concluded that James Comey defied authority at times during his tenure as FBI director, according to sources familiar with a draft report on the matter.
One source told ABC News that the draft report explicitly used the word “insubordinate” to describe Comey’s behavior. Another source agreed with that characterization but could not confirm the use of the term.
In the draft report, Inspector General Michael Horowitz also rebuked former Attorney General Loretta Lynch for her handling of the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton‘s personal email server, the sources said. (more)
Given the nature of the recent explanations as provided by the attorney for Andrew McCabe; and accepting the prior repeated assertions of FBI Director James Comey: “that was not my understanding”, we can begin to assemble the preferred narrative direction.
It would appear the media, and swamp proletariat, are attempting to cut off any potential damage to the Obama administration by placing a firewall atop James Comey.
I suspect this won’t sit well with Jimmy. What will Jimmy do? What WILL Jimmy do?
so where is the radicalized muslin terrorist ex pres these days??
@MOS #8541: Probably in a cave in Tora Bora planning his next campaign.
Anything short of criminal referrals will mean the IG has been compromised as well. The scope of the abuses of power and criminal activity of the last administration is beyond pale. All the Politburo, Council of Ministers, and Presidium comrades need to go down including their Premier.
@another vet: Unless this seditious behavior is punished… SEVERELY… it will not be properly discouraged from happening again, not that the people involved actually make up their own minds in these matters anyway.
“Swamp proletariat?” That sounds like a term concocted by a Marxist propagandist. You people are so far gone you don’t realize how far gone you actually are. Aren’t there any actual conservatives left out there? I often didn’t agree with them, but they at least made sense.
