WASHINGTON (INTELLIHUB) — Although Senator John McCain beat around the bush in an attempt to get his point across to Fmr. FBI Director James Comey and others in attendance at Thursday’s hearing on Capitol Hill, he actually made perfect sense — here’s why:
What the 80-year-old senator from Arizona was trying to say is that President Trump is still under FBI investigation for possible ties to the alleged Russian interfere of the U.S. electoral system but somehow the FBI reached a conclusion regarding Hillary Clinton’s ties in the same investigation, clearing her.
McCain said that Comey reached a “conclusion” in the case whether or not to “further pursue” Hillary Clinton and chose not to.
“I don’t understand how you can be done with that but not done with the whole investigation of their attempt to effect the outcome of our election,” McCain said. “Yet at the same time, in the Case of [Donald Trump] you said that there was not enough information to make a conclusion.”
Surprisingly, at least in this case, Sen. McCain’s train of thought is spot on. After all, how could the FBI exclude Hillary Clinton so quickly from the very same investigation that’s dealing with the possibility of campaign collusion with the Russians to undermine the U.S. system.
In an effort to pass the buck, Comey told McCain, “As of July the 5th the FBI completed its investigative work and that’s what I was announcing, what we have done and what we have found.
As a result, the senator from Arizona fired back, telling Comey, “There’s a whole lot of questions out there” about Hillary Clinton’s involvement. […] You’re going to have to help me out here.”
“In other words, we are complete in the investigation of anything that former Secretary Clinton had to do with the campaign is over and we don’t have to worry about it anymore?” McCain asked.
‘I’m confused,’ Comey responded.
