On Thursday, it was revealed in the Department of Justice Inspector General’s report that former FBI director James Comey used his own personal Gmail account to conduct FBI business.
As you might recall, ironically, Comey was the man who headed the investigation into twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s private email scandal and recommended no charges be made against Mrs. Clinton, citing her supposed lack of “intent” of wrongdoing. But Comey would also later pen a damning letter concerning new emails related to the Hillary investigation; that letter would later be cited by Hillary as being a major contributing factor to her devastating upset defeat by Donald Trump.
“We identified numerous instances in which Comey used a personal email account to conduct unclassified FBI business,” reads the IG report. “We found that, given the absence of exigent circumstances and the frequency with which the use of personal email occurred, Comey’s use of a personal email account for unclassified FBI business to be inconsistent with Department policy.”
Hillary was none too pleased about the grave irony of the report, and responded with three sarcastic words on Thursday evening: “But my emails.”
Of course, as noted by Daily Wire Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro, Comey’s personal wrongdoing here might have actually saved Mrs. Clinton. “Could it be that Comey added the ‘intent’ provision of the law because he knew that he had engaged in similar activity, and didn’t want to get into hot water for doing so?” wondered Shapiro.
