Fired FBI director James Comey came out swinging at his Collusion buddy Robert Mueller on Tuesday.
Comey called the Mueller Report “confusing” and he “can’t quite understand what’s going on with the obstruction stuff.”
Speaking to an audience at Belk Theatre in Charlotte, N.C., Comey said “The part that’s confusing is, I can’t quite understand what’s going on with the obstruction stuff…And I have great faith in Bob Mueller, but I just can’t tell from the letter why didn’t he decide these questions when the entire rationale for a special counsel is to make sure the politicals aren’t making the key charging decisions.”
In a four page letter to congress on Sunday, AG Barr summarized Mueller’s findings and said since Mueller found no evidence that Trump or anyone his people coordinated with the Russians, their intent could not be established.
Pissed Comey also pushed back on Attorney General Barr’s decision not to pursue obstruction charges against the president, saying he found that part of Barr’s letter “really confusing.”
“The notion that obstruction cases are somehow undermined by the absence of proof of an underlying crime, that is not my experience in 40 years of doing this nor is it the Department of Justice’s tradition. Obstruction crimes matter without regard to what you prove about the underlying crime,” Comey said.
