I feel so lonely sometimes. There are plenty of people who believe that James Comey was right to do what he did when he announced no charges would be brought against Hillary Clinton. And there are plenty of people who believed him wrong then but now that he's reopened the investigation think he's the smartest investigator since Sherlock Holmes. But there are few who believe he was right both times.
Democrats had a big change of heart after Director Comey told Congress last week that he wasn't quite done with the case after all. As we all know, that announcement landed like a Goo Gone bomb, because Democrats came unglued.
His original decision not to prosecute Hillary was based on the belief that he shouldn't be making new law in a case like this. Even though she may have violated the letter of the law, he said there had been no previous prosecutions under the statute, and with such weak precedent he wasn't going to start now. Plus he was probably getting tremendous heat from the Executive Branch. His decision made sense to me. I sympathized with him. He has his talents, but he isn't Superman.
Things turned around when he issued the letter to Congress about investigating of newly found emails on Anthony Weiner's computer. It makes perfect sense to investigate those newly found materials. Had he not promised Congress to keep them posted on the matter then the announcement may not have occurred. But he kept his promise, and presumably the investigation will continue till all Hillary's emails have been found and investigated.
Democrats screamed so loud that everyone on the planet has to know by now that they aren't interested in justice but only power.
There probably aren't that many of us who believe Comey was right both times. But he was right both times.
