This is huge. It’s beginning to look like James Comey let Hillary Clinton off the hook before he even knew all the facts. There seems to be no end to the trail of corruption and lies in this case.
CBS News reports:
Comey drafted conclusion in Hillary Clinton probe before key interviews, top Republicans say
Fired FBI Director James Comey drafted a statement to announce the conclusion in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server before the FBI interviewed key witnesses, including Hillary Clinton herself, top Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee claim.
Committee chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, reached that conclusion from transcripts of interviews with people close to Comey and provided by the Department of Justice’s Office of Special Counsel (OSC). Those transcripts, the Republicans said in a Thursday letter to current FBI Director Chris Wray, show Comey had already drafted a conclusion for his investigation before interviewing 17 key witnesses, including Clinton, and before the DOJ had reached immunity agreements with former Clinton aides Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson.
Comey’s sudden July 5 announcement that there would be no charges in the Clinton investigation — despite his sharp criticisms of the former presidential candidate — threw a wrench in an already-tumultuous election cycle.
“Conclusion first, fact-gathering second—that’s no way to run an investigation,” the senators said in their letter to Wray. “The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy.”

Some people will probably go to jail before all this is done.
