This is Frank Gaffney with the Secure Freedom Minute.
Last week, fired FBI Director James Comey showed why he is reportedly seen by FBI agents as a compromised or “dirty” cop. For starters, he acknowledged bowing to pressure from his then-boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, to intervene in the 2016 election to help Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.
That cop got even dirtier when he acknowledged leaking confidential government records to secure the appointment of a special counsel, feeding the narrative that Mr. Trump obstructed justice when he sacked Mr. Comey. The President adamantly denies doing that and is prepared to say so under oath.
Obviously, it matters that the special counsel who would receive and evaluate such testimony is Robert Mueller, an old and close friend of Comey’s. That’s the very definition of a conflict of interest and can only be resolved by Mueller’s replacement with a truly independent investigator.
