A lot of Americans were dumbfounded when FBI Director Comey let Hillary off the hook on her shady email practices even after laying out a very prosecutable case.
Here’s a brief summary.
It was very clear that Comey rewrote the federal law in his own mind in order to excuse Hillary’s reckless behavior.
This week, Comey was in the news again.
Only this time, he was in hot water for apparently saying some things during testimony last week about Hillary’s emails that weren’t exactly true.
From Fox News:
FBI Director James Comey last week reportedly misstated the number of Hillary Clinton’s emails that Huma Abedin forwarded to her husband, Anthony Weiner, to print out, ProPublica reported.
Comey told a Senate Judiciary Committee last week that Clinton aide Abedin forwarded “hundreds of thousands” of Clinton’s emails to her husband. But two unnamed sources familiar with the matter told ProPublica that Abedin only forwarded a handful of those emails.
The sources told ProPublica that it was more likely that most of the emails appeared on Weiner’s laptop as a result of backups of Abedin’s Blackberry device. The FBI said it would correct the record by sending a letter to Congress this week, but that plan appeared to be on hold for now, the website reported.

From Washington Examiner:
President Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, press secretary Sean Spicer told reporters on Tuesday evening.
A stunning turn of events.
Not exactly sure what this means for Hillary. It was reported that other agents within the FBI were furious that Comey let Hillary off the hook. Could Comey’s replacement actually go after her?
We will keep you posted.
