We’ve said for awhile that the investigation we need to be paying attention to is Huber’s, not Mueller’s.
Dear Attorney General Sessions, Director Wray, and Mr. Huber:
We write to refer the following individuals for investigation of potential violation(s) of federal statutes. In doing so, we are especially mindful of the dissimilar degrees of zealousness that has marked the investigations into the Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, respectively. Because we believe those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately.
- Former FBI Director James Comey.
On July 5,2016, Comey made a statement on the investigation of Secretary Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal e-mail system, during which he stated: “…there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.” He went on to say: “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgement is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.” Incredibly, this judgment appears to have been made prior to interviewing Secretary Clinton and as many as 17 key witnesses including Clinton’s closest aides. Comey’s decision to not seek charges against Clinton’s misconduct suggests improper investigative conduct, potentially motivated by a political agenda. Accordingly, we refer James Comey to DOJ for potential violation(s) of: 18 USC 1505 and 1515b.
In addition to his handling of the Clinton investigation, Comey engaged in questionable conduct vis-à-via President Donald Trump. As reported by The New York Times, Director Comey wrote memoranda detailing alleged conversations between himself and President Trump, creating a “paper trail” for “documenting what he perceived as the president’s improper efforts to influence a continuing investigation.” The article reports that Comey “created similar memos – including some that are classified – about every phone call and meeting he had with the president.”
As detailed in a January 3, 2018, letter to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein from Hon. Charles E. Grassley (Chairman of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary), committee staff reviewed the memoranda created by former Director Comey in a Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility due to classified nature of the majority of the memos; of the seven memos, four were marked classified at the “SECRET” or “CONFIDENTIAL” levels.
