The FBI’s Defense of How the Clinton Interview Was Conducted Is Full of Holes

The Bureau was clearly hamstrung by the Obama administration’s goal of avoiding prosecution.

But I am hardwired to presume the FBI’s integrity. Thus, no matter how much irregularities in the Clinton investigation have rankled me, I’ve chalked them up to the Bureau’s being hamstrung. There was no chance on God’s green earth that President Obama and his Justice Department were ever going to permit an indictment of Hillary Clinton. Jim Comey says he didn’t make his final decision to recommend against prosecution until after Mrs. Clinton was interviewed at the end of the investigation, and that he did not coordinate that decision with his Obama-administration superiors. If he says so, that’s good enough for me. But it doesn’t mean the director made his decision detached from the dismal reality of the situation." . . .

Andrew C. McCarthy is a senior policy fellow at the National Review Institute and a contributing editor of National Review. He is a former assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, and led the 1995 terrorism prosecution against Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and eleven others."
