With the firing of FBI Director Comey, is President Trump making way for a new FBI Director to keep one of Trump's campaign promises to "lock up" Hillary Clinton?
Comey made it clear in July 2016 that he thought Clinton's "misuse" of classified and top secret emails on her personal server weren't enough to file charges, then Candidate Donald Trump disagreed, as did his supporters. The chant of "lock her up" went on for months and many Trump supporters were disappointed in December when Trump said he wasn't interested in "locking her up" any longer.
Trump supporters were not happy to hear that. Some thought he was just saying that so that Obama wouldn't pardon Clinton before he left office, so hope was held that once Trump was sworn in he would go after Clinton, but he didn't.
Then Hillary Clinton came out of the woods and decided to "join the resistance" and fight against Republicans and President Trump policies.
Did she just poke the lion? 😏
Has the firing of Comey opened the way for Trump to keep that campaign promise and shut down Hillary Clinton and her resistance before she even gets started?
I think so.
From Judicial Watch:
Note the last comment: “The FBI convened a grand jury to investigate Hillary Clinton in 2016. Why is this information being released only now?” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “And it is disturbing that the State Department, Justice Department and FBI are still trying to protect Hillary Clinton. President Trump needs to clean house at all these agencies.”
Looks like Trump is indeed cleaning house (or as he says "draining the swamp" and quite possibly making way to lock her up.
With a new FBI Director and questions still being asked and answered about the email server and investigations into any Russian ties to our 2016 election the hornets nest is continually being stirred and someone is going to get stung- but I don't think it's going to be President Donald Trump. 😉
