Former FBI Director made sure Clintons were never prosecuted
WASHINGTON, D.C. – FBI Director James Comey is a Clinton-fixer with a long history of running interference within the Department of Justice to make sure the Clintons are never prosecuted – a loyalty that the Clintons have repaid in corporate board appointments that have earned Comey millions of dollars.
Early encounters: Whitewater and Marc Rich
Comey’s involvement protecting Hillary goes back to the mid-1990s and Whitewater, when Comey served as a special counsel to the Senate Whitewater Committee.
We now know from the 246 pages of previously undisclosed internal memos released by Judicial Watch from Ken Starr’s Office of Independent Council investigation in 1998 that DOJ prosecutors had evidence that Hillary Clinton and her associate Webb Hubbell at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, were guilty of criminal fraud in the Whitewater affair.
From 1987 to 1993, Comey, working in the U.S. Attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York, served as the DOJ prosecutor who oversaw the prosecution of Marc Rich, the billionaire oil trader convicted of tax fraud and trading with Iran during the embassy hostage crisis.
But in 2001, when Bill Clinton decided on his last day in office to pardon Marc Rich, Comey oversaw the criminal investigation, but decided there was no wrongdoing on Bill Clinton’s part, “despite public outcry over the evidence that Rich’s ex-wife had donated to Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign.”
The Sandy Berger case
Arguably, in 2004, Comey, then serving as a deputy attorney general in the Justice Department, limited the criminal investigation of Sandy Berger so as to protect anyone in the former Clinton administration who may have coordinated with Berger in his removal and destruction of classified records from the National Archives.
The documents Berger purloined from the Archives in his socks are believed to have contained incriminating evidence linking the Clinton administration to the terrorist build-up in the United States that culminated in the 9/11 terrorist attack.
