Even though Hillary Clinton still blames FBI Director James Comey for her loss in the presidential election, she had a mixed reaction to President Trump firing him earlier this week.
Clinton reportedly believes the timing of Comey’s firing “only reinforces the point that he was on to something,” according to one of the New York Times’ anonymous sources.
Trump explained in a letter to Comey that he had to be removed in order to restore “public trust” in the FBI. More reasons were stated in a report by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who derided the way Comey handled the Clinton email investigation.
“There is no one I have encountered in Clintonworld who views this as a positive development,” said Jennifer Palmieri, former communications director for the Clinton campaign. “When I heard the news, my first thought was, ‘They must be getting close.’”
Clinton has not commented publicly regarding Comey’s removal.
Meanwhile, DML and other conservative pundits are calling for the reopening of the investigation into Clinton’s email scandal once a new FBI director is appointed. Yesterday, during his Walk & Talk, our very own Dennis Michael Lynch said, “Trump will never get a second chance like this again. He can change the narrative and put the Democrats, and the media, on its heels by going after the corruption once and for all. Start with the email scandal, then take another look at Benghazi. Take measures to clean the swamp and crush their hero, Hillary Clinton.”
