The Russian Hoax

Chapter 2

James Comey was the FBI director. After the investigation into the issue of Hillary Clinton and her email server, he gathered up all the evidence and arranged a press conference to be held on July 5, 2016, where he announced the findings. It was an expectation by many that he would outline evidence against Clinton for the crimes she had committed — but yet, this was not the case. Although Comey laid out the evidence he had on the issue, he did not refer Clinton for prosecution. This chapter arouses Jarrett’s feelings, which makes him believe that Comey’s assessment was inaccurate and conspicuously wrong.


It is plausible that Comey’s findings could be inaccurate. Having laid out the evidence at the press conference, he was still unable to bring the people he deemed guilty to face the law. Furthermore, he even went against the expectations of many who had expected Clinton to be prosecuted (but which turned out not to be the case). Some citizens also thought of his lengthy statement as a complete waste of time, since they were unable to refer the real criminal to prosecution.
