The higher loyalty of James Comey 21

The Roman satirist Juvenal asked: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

The guardians themselves – who will guard them?

No one. Nothing. The rot of US government corruption in the age of Obama and the Clintons is discovered to be ever deeper, ever wider. There is no bottom, there is no limit.

Breitbart reports on FBI Director James Comey who, as a top guardian of the law, could single-handedly have saved America (and the world) from the appalling possibility of a Hillary Clinton presidency by recommending her prosecution for the high crimes she had committed – and didn’t do it.

What held him back?

It emerges that in his own mind, the Director of the FBI owes a higher loyalty to Hillary Clinton than to America.

A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.

When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers.

But Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year. 

Comey served as deputy attorney general under John Ashcroft for two years of the Bush administration. When he left the Bush administration, he went directly to Lockheed Martin and became vice president, acting as a general counsel. …

Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010. According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010. In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department. 

In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings. … HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation. …

Breitbart found that James Comey owns the mortgage on his brother Peter’s house. Does Peter Comey also have a connection to the Clintons?

When our source called the Chinatown offices of D.C. law firm DLA Piper and asked for “Peter Comey”,  a receptionist immediately put him through to Comey’s direct line. But Peter Comey is not featured on the DLA Piper website. Peter Comey serves as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper.

James Comey was not questioned about his relationship with Peter Comey in his confirmation hearing.

DLA Piper is the firm that performed the “independent” audit of the Clinton Foundation in November during Clinton-World’s first big push to put the email scandal behind them.

DLA Piper’s employees taken as a whole represent a major Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign donation bloc and Clinton Foundation donation base. DLA Piper ranks #5 on Hillary Clinton’s all-time career Top Contributors list, just ahead of Goldman Sachs. 

So there never was the remotest chance that James Comey, head of the FBI, would recommend the prosecution of Hillary Clinton. And Attorney General Loretta Lynch, head of the Department of Justice, surely knew that perfectly well when she said she would accept Comey’s recommendation, “whatever it was”.

In or out of the White House, the Clintons rule.
