Why Hillary Investigation Was Reopened Before Election

Former FBI director James Comey admitted to ABC that he only reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails just 11 days before the 2016 presidential election because he was sure she would win.

ABC’s Stephanopoulos asked Comey, “At some level, wasn’t the decision to reveal influenced by your assumption that Hillary Clinton was going to win and concerned that if she wins, this comes out weeks later, that is taken by her opponents as a sign she’s an illegitimate president?”

Comey responded, “It must have been. I don’t remember consciously thinking about that, but it must have been because I was operating in a world where Hillary Clinton was going to beat Donald Trump. And so I’m sure that it was a factor.”

“Like I said, I don’t remember spelling it out, but it had to have been—that she’s going to be elected president and if I hide this from the American people, she’ll be illegitimate the moment she’s elected, the moment this comes out.”

    Comey never considered that Hillary would lose because she is a crook?

    • JohnGaltTexas

      That and because they figured they had enough vote fraud going on that it was a slam dunk. They’re still livid that they didn’t cheat ENOUGH. All of the leftist vermin should be in prison or deported to some sh*thole communist utopia of their choice.

        Isn’t it the least suspicious that practically everyone knows this but some a**holes are pulling strings to keep her out of prison? They need to be found out; strung up and cremated!

    • rottenrollin

      He thought she would win because she’s s crook.

      • Dasgeiss

        Of course! They thought the 100% Fix was in….so obvious it sad!

    • Dasgeiss

      Because he knew the “Fix” was in.

    • RC

      Yes, and I feel Comey is just as crooked. Either that, or the Clintons realy have something on him. I recall them bragging about their little black book with something on nearly everyone in D.C. when Bill was in power.

    LMFAO —- this guy is a total and definite IDIOT and MORON…..

    • John D Lite

      Yes he is and the more he talks the less faith I have in the FBI. And we sell have the “lovebirds” working at the bureau

    • Dasgeiss

      …and crooked as hell!

    “Just the minute the FBI begins making recommendations on what should be done with its
    information, it becomes a Gestapo.”- J. Edgar Hoover

    • Samuel Broseker

      What an ironic statement since this is exactly what J. Edgar Hoover did during his tenure with the FBI.

      • Dasgeiss

        Information is just information unless one acts upon it.

        • Samuel Pablo Broseker

          That’s my point, he did act on it.

  • Joe Pewter

    these fu/kin punk leftist had h non-invest re-opened cuz the fools thought….seee nothing was done wrong…juvenile minded scum…the only reason dem s get elected/reelected is from rigging voting machines …study up on the machines that use a targeting card…names are programed…programming can be directed to a certain candidate

    • Dasgeiss

      As Lenin said, it isn’t the votes of the folks that count; it’s those who count the votes that count. or something like that……

  • Wyatt

    He figured the “fix” was in , Hilary couldn’t possibly lose especially to a political outsider . Ergo , safe to reopen the investigation . It could only enhance her standing when elected . Well “SURPRIZE!’ . As Bugs Bunny would say . “What a Maroon” . Trump won , we got an honest to goodness President MAGA !

    • Dasgeiss

      Ahhh, What’s up Doc? Trump won? Impossible! LOL

  • Sabo

    I’m confused. We all know that Hillary is a traitor among many other crooked doings. Why is she not in jail?

    • Dasgeiss

      Because she has some highly influential guys pulling the strings for her. This is where our legal system breaks down. Apparently nobody in power wants it fixed either. Therein lies the sad part!

      • Sabo

        The government reeks with corruptness. It took years to do this. I’m not sure we can drain the swamp fast enough.

    • Tom

      Her assassin, she has paid to kill all of the people that have ever bucked her needs to be imprisoned also, I believe her body count is over 75 people, and all of them have mysteriously died, even that Supreme court’s justice that was killed on that hunting trip, probably wasn’t an accident.

      • Sabo

        I don’t know what to believe. I heard Scalise (?) was at a camp where “they” molested little boys.

        • Tom

          Who knows, you could be right.

  • autrypma

    He also thought she would win because of the fraud and illegal votes that they bought and paid for…Too bad, Mr. Comey..See below from JohnGaltTexas. He did write the rest of this story.
    All leftist vermin should be in prison or deported to some sh*hole communist utopis of their choice…

  • help_us_survive_this

    Ah now he more or less admitted that he knew the election was rigged for Hillary to win
    George put the words out there and lai boy grabbed them like a drowning rat. Yup, George that is it, has to be! What an ablibber fiber. Send this guy to jail for life manufacturing gravel with a sledge hammer.

    • Tom

      Make it a ball peen hammer it will take longer.

      • cowboy541

        A rubber mallet would even be better yet.

  • Ron

    You are incompentent and you were sure Hillaty was going to win because you were a big part of the fix. Hi llary should be under investigation for many crimes and you are part of her team and just look the other way. Trump made no misyake in firing you/

  • Don Kolesar

    In California when you get your drivers license you are automatically registered to vote!!!! How are we to take over 3 million illegals have California drivers licenses. What’s to keep them from voting in any election? Honor system???? Go figure the bill to make California a Sanctuary State passed. The illegals were voting to protect themselves.

  • Edward Marquez

    James Comey open the investigation before the Election because he was trying to cover his Ass in case she lost. Well she lost. never bet on a sure horse and he knew it could happen.after all a man that sold cheap suits for a living drop the two atomic bombs on Japan and stopped a World War.
