FBI Director James Comey appeared before Congress yesterday to talk about why the FBI handed out immunity deals like candy and why the fact that Hillary’s IT company was clearly instructed to delete emails and hide evidence is not enough to reopen the case.
He danced around the issues, but made it clear that a double standard applies to Hillary…period.
However, there’s another story looming here that most are overlooking and it stems around the fact that James Comey refuses to answer questions about the Clinton Foundation, but now we just might know why.
Back in July, The New York Times reported:
Mr. Comey refused to answer a question from the committee chairman about whether the investigation the bureau conducted extended to the Clinton Foundation, which has faced questions about donations from foreign officials seeking to influence American policy.
“I’m not going to comment on the existence or nonexistence of other investigations,” he said.
“Was the Clinton Foundation tied into this investigation?” Mr. Chaffetz asked.
“I’m not going to answer that,” Mr. Comey said.
IJR put the pieces together saying,
It has been learned since his Congressional testimony that a complex web of relationships ties James Comey to the Clinton Foundation.
The first thing to know about James Comey is that before he became the FBI Director in 2013, he was a top executive at Lockheed Martin from October, 2005 until July 2, 2010.
As former general counsel and vice president of Lockheed Martin, the defense contractor benefited under Comey’s leadership from a number of contracts awarded by Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
Lockheed Martin has been one of the top defense contributors to the Clinton Foundation:
But there’s more…
The International Business Times reported several defense contractors ties to the Clinton Foundation, which was, of course, approved by Hillary’s State Department.
On one occasion, a $250,000 payment was given to Bill Clinton just three days before a weapons-export contract was awarded to Lockheed:
Boeing was one of three companies that helped deliver money personally to Bill Clinton while benefiting from weapons authorizations issued by Hillary Clinton’s State Department. The others were Lockheed and the financial giant Goldman Sachs.
Lockheed is a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to speak at an event in 2010. Three days before the speech, Hillary Clinton’s State Department approved two weapons export deals in which Lockheed was listed as the prime contractor.
Over the course of 2010, Lockheed was a contractor on 17 Pentagon-brokered deals that won approval from the State Department. Lockheed told IBTimes that its support for the Clinton Foundation started in 2010, while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state.
IJR went on to report, not surprisingly…
Hillary Clinton’s State Dept. would approve 215 speeches delivered by her husband Bill Clinton and a consulting deal worth a total of $48 million. In sum, 17 of 20 countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation saw an increase in arms exports authorized under Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
Lockheed Martin would become a member of the Clinton Global Initiative in 2010. But it’s not the only company that had extensive ties with the Clinton Foundation in Comey’s background.
There’s even more ties from Comey to Clinton…
Comey was appointed Director of HSBC Holdings in March, 2013, the very same year he was appointed FBI Director. He became an independent non-executive Director and a member of the Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee. The appointment was set to expire this year.
Wealthy HSBC clients lined up to shower cash on the Clinton foundation, including Jeffrey Epstein, the hedge fund manager and convicted sex offender. Others include Canadian mining magnate Frank Giustra and Richard Caring, the British retail magnate.
HSBC is connected to the Clinton Foundation through a number of initiatives, including its “Building the Corporate Coalition,” “Scaling Rainwater Harvesting for 21st Century Mexico,” “Investing in Management and Leadership in Vietnam,” and other projects. Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank, Morgan Stanley, and a number of transnational corporations, also participate.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see the ties that have been formed her. Comey tries to stand before America and pretend these facts do not exists, but they do and Americans are not blind.
