There’s little question over whether or not former FBI Director James Comey gave Hillary Clinton special treatment over her illegal use of a private email server, and newly-exposed financial ties gives more insight into why he may have given her a pass.
We already knew that Comey served on the board of Lockheed Martin at the same time the defense contractor became large donors to the Clinton Foundation, which alone should have caused him to recuse himself from the email investigation. However, newly discovered financial ties to the flailing Clinton “charity” prove a clear conflict of interest while calling into question Comey’s reasoning for remaining involved with the probe.
Big League Politics is reporting that Comey’s brother, Peter Comey, works at the Washington law firm DLA Piper as the “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas.” DLA Piper has major ties to the Clinton Foundation, including being one of its top ten all-time career campaign donors, but that’s not all.
From Big League Politics [emphasis mine]:
DLA Piper is one of Hillary Clinton’s top ten all-time career campaign donors.
DLA Piper also does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes. That’s right. In fact, when the Clinton Foundation scandal broke, it was DLA Piper that performed the 2015 audit on the Foundation, which was supposed to be an independent audit for the appearance of propriety.
Property records show that James Comey owns the mortgage on his brother Peter Comey’s house in Virginia. Therefore, James Comey had a direct financial relationship with a DLA Piper executive at the time he was investigating Clinton.
These relationships, though egregious, are symptomatic of the brazen culture of crony capitalism that exists in our nation’s capital. The public usually is prevented from learning these kinds of things, with the mainstream media blocking information from coming out. Sunlight is the only remedy.
As more time passes, we’re learning that President Trump did in fact make the right call getting rid of Comey, who appears to be embedded directly in the middle of the swamp. Perhaps that’s the reason Barack Obama appointed him as the FBI director; what better way to keep the swamp full than to have one of its own creatures guarding it.
Hopefully, his firing is the drain plug that creates the vortex that finally drains the sewage from Washington, D.C.
