I think I get it now.
Yeah, still on the whole HRC nonstick issue.
Fact: Comey spent 13 minutes talking about all the wrong doing of HRC and ended with 90 seconds of ” but we ain’t gonna pursue this because no career prosecutor is gonna touch this with your d!€k.” (not verbatim, just the gist )
Now a couple days later he is up to his neck in Congress critters saying the same thing.
The man is not stupid. He knows how the corruption on the hill rolls or he wouldn’t be were he is. He has history to guide his choices (Vince Foster, that recent weight lifter from the U.N.) and his boss, Lorretta Lynch, showed where her loyalties were in Phoenix.
I am reminded of a scene from “the Moon is a harsh mistress ” by Heinlein. The scene is in the Raffles hotel and Manny, Prof, and Wyoh are talking to Mike (sentient computer) about the fink files in his memory. He waffles around the subject, not because he doesn’t want to tell them but because his rules are fixed. He needs to be told the password to open the file.
Comey is in Mikes figurative shoes.
I guess at this point, we get to see who is loyal to the party, and who is loyal to their ethics.
The masks come off and I have to tip my hat to Comey for this round.
