Holder Defends Comey for Drafting Exoneration Before Completing Clinton Investigation


Wednesday on CNN’s “The Lead,” former Obama administration Attorney General Eric Holder said that former FBI Director James Comey drafting his statement on the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server before interviewing her was appropriate. Holder said, “He’s an honest guy, and the determination that he made, and I think inappropriately announced, I think is based on the facts, based on his interpretation of the law, and it was nothing more than that,” Holder said. “It was a good-faith assessment by a person who I think has done a lot for this country.” He continued, “You can make determinations about where an investigation is likely to go before you actually speak to the subject of that investigation. That inquiry had been underway for an extended period of time.” He added, “A lot of resources had been used. A lot of people had been spoken to. A lot of documents had been reviewed. So you can get to, you know, pretty close to the end of an investigation and understand where you’re going to go with it before you actually talk to the subject of the investigation.” (h/t WFB) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Bombshell: Longtime Clinton Friend Admits ‘Warning’ Top-Level Democrats About Weinstein

Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, the creator of the iconic 90s sitcom Designing Women and a close friend for decades of Bill and Hillary Clinton, admits that she not only knew of producer Harvey Weinstein’s predations, but that she warned “top-level” Democrats about him. Buried deep within a Hollywood Reporter guest column, Bloodworth-Thomason drops this bombshell (with a deflecting shot at Fox News): “I confess to having had no problem warning at least three top-level Democratic operatives against allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers. A warning that evidently (and to the glee of Fox News) fell on deaf ears.” She also says she was a member of “a ‘Let’s Bring Harvey Weinstein Down’ lunch club” and appears to express some disbelief towards those who, “despite knowing him for decades,” now “announce they had no idea what was going on.” To this, she writes, “OK. Whatever.” If Bloodworth-Thomason knew about Weinstein’s alleged predations and warned top-level Democrats, how difficult is it to add two and two to come up with the Clintons and the Democrat Party knew? Certainly, and we have no reason to doubt Bloodworth-Thomason, at least three top-level Democrats knew, and did nothing to stop Weinstein from becoming a major player and

Gowdy: We Need to Talk to Comey About Clinton Again, ‘His Answers Have Been All Over the Map’

Screenshot
On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Special Report,” Representative Trey Gowdy (R-SC) stated that Congress needs to talk to former FBI Director James Comey about whether he decided not to charge Hillary Clinton before interviewing her, given the fact that Comey’s chronology doesn’t work and “His answers have been all over the map.” Gowdy said, “We are going to talk to his present and former colleagues. May the 2nd is when these memos, these heavily-redacted memos appear, where they are discussing, internally, whether or not to make a charging decision. It’s a month and a half later before he announces his decision, in early July. So, you’ve got — that’s two months, two months, from May the 2nd until July the 5th. There were two dozen witness interviews in that time period. So, if you’re discussing whether or not to charge someone in early May, and you haven’t interviewed two dozen witnesses, including one named Clinton, [Representative] John Ratcliffe (R-TX) asked exactly the right question [about whether Comey decided to charge before or after Clinton was interviewed by the FBI]. I’m just not sure that Director Comey gave him an accurate answer.” He later added, “[T]he chronology does not
