Trump Responds To DOJ Investigation Of Comey


A new investigation by the Department of Justice will look into the FBI, and its decision to announce the “re-opening” of Hillary Clinton’s email case, weeks before the November 8th election.

Democrats believe James Comey’s decision to announce to the public the FBI’s new investigation into the emails, affected voter’s perception of Clinton right before the election.  Liberals believe his decision could have been politically motivated.

According to Reuters:

Trump will not have the power to dismiss the investigation. Federal law permits U.S. presidents to dismiss inspectors general for federal agencies, as long as the president provides Congress a written justification for the removal 30 days in advance.

On Friday, President-elect Trump made it clear via Twitter, he does not agree with pursuing this new investigation.

“What are Hillary Clinton’s people complaining about with respect to the F.B.I.,” Trump tweeted.  “Based on the information they had, she should never have been allowed to run – guilty as hell.  They were VERY nice to her. She lost because she campaigned in the wrong states – no enthusiasm!”

On the other side, Reuters reports, Senator Dick Durbin, a Democrat,  said Comey’s decisions were not “fair, professional or consistent with the policies of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.”

“Those tweets are just the latest indication that Donald Trump is someone who is very insecure in his victory,” claimed Brian Fallon, Clinton’s spokesperson.

The Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General will be conducting the investigation, and on Thursday, Comey said he will fully cooperate.
