By Chad Groening, OneNewsNow.com, June 12, 2017 – A former U.S. Justice Department attorney says last week’s testimony of fired FBI Director James Comey failed to live up to the media-driven hype.
“It did not live up to its hype at all,” J. Christian Adams says of Comey’s testimony last Thursday before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
“All we learned of any importance,” Adams recalls, “was number one, there’s no investigation of the president.”
There was also no Russian hacking of election results, he points out.
The spokesman for a government watchdog, meanwhile, told Fox Business Channel that it was extraordinary to see Comey admit that he gave memos to a friend with instructions to leak them to the media.
“It’s lawless,” Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch told the cable news channel. “We wonder why we have leakers in the government when the FBI director is playing these little games for political points or because his tender ego is bruised.”
Farrell went on to claim that FBI agents he has talked to consider Comey a “dirty cop,” and that impression created a legal cloud that still hangs over him.
Comey released a copy of his opening statement before his appearance, and observers such as frequent Trump critic Ben Shapiro at Dailywire.com predicted that Democrats would be disappointed at what was coming.
Shapiro suggested, for example, that Comey was admitting Trump wanted the Russia investigation to conclude but didn’t pressure him to shut it down.
Adams insists there would have been no obstruction of justice even if the President had told Comey to discontinue the investigation.
“If he had been explicit and said, shut down the investigation, that is not obstruction of justice,” Adams advises. “The president of the United States has the power under the Constitution to do that.”
