Ed Klein just published an excerpt of his new nonfiction book Guilty as Sin. His book recounts in close detail how Hillary Clinton got away with her crimes, as helped by FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Begins the excerpt, “It was Jan. 29, 2016, and an aide had just handed Comey a printout of today’s White House press conference by Josh Earnest, the president’s spokesman.”
It continues, “There, marked for Comey’s attention, was Earnest’s response to a reporter who had asked whether Hillary Clinton was likely to be indicted as a result of the FBI’s investigation into her personal emails. ‘Based on what we know from the Department of Justice,’ Earnest said, ‘it does not seem to be headed in that direction.’ ‘How does Earnest know anything?’ Comey asked.” Uniformed FBI agents on Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s protective detail had informed Comey that Lynch had locked an armful of documents on the FBI investigation into her briefcase and delivered them to the White House.”
“More than once, Lynch had brought along a Justice Department prosecutor who was working on the Hillary case to brief the president’s staff. These briefings between Lynch and the White House (which Lynch publicly denied because they were unethical) had been going on since Comey’s investigation began in the summer of 2015. Comey was aware, of course, that his criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton was inevitably linked with the highest possible stakes in American politics. If his agents turned up evidence of criminal wrongdoing on Hillary’s part, it would ignite the greatest political firestorm since Watergate. And more likely than not, that would derail Hillary’s candidacy for the White House.” How deeply disturbing do you find this?
