Ted Cruz Scorches FBI Director James Comey

The video of Ted Cruz questioning FBI Director James Comey is all the proof most conservatives need that keeping Comey on as FBI Director may be the worst personnel decision of President Trump’s new administration.

During Comey’s May 3 appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Comey testified that, “Somehow, [Huma Abedin’s] emails were being forwarded to Anthony Weiner, including classified information,” Comey said. Weiner’s “then-spouse Huma Abedin appears to have had a regular practice of forwarding emails to him Ted Cruzfor him to print out for her so she could deliver them to the secretary of state.” [Emphasis ours.]

“The reason that answer is puzzling, as you’re a very accomplished lawyer,” said Cruz, “and as you’re well aware, every first-year law student learns in criminal law that ignorance of the law is no excuse.”

Senator Ted Cruz then offered the following commentary on the FBI investigation of Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton:

You described the reason why the case was closed against Ms. Abedin as that you could not determine she was aware her conduct was unlawful. … Any first-year law student learns in criminal law ignorance of the law is no excuse, and that mens rea does not require knowledge that conduct is unlawful.”

Cruz continued:

The governing statutes – 18 USC 793f and 18 USC 798a – have no requirement of a knowledge of unlawful [intent]…under the terms of that statute, the fact pattern you described in this hearing [of Abedin’s behavior] seems to fit that statute directly. In that, if I understood you correctly, you said Ms. Abedin forwarded hundreds or thousands of classified emails to her husband on a non-government, non-classified computer.

“How does that conduct not directly violate that statute?” Cruz asked.

Comey blundered through a claim that “for generations” FBI practice has been to require intent even if the law doesn’t call for it.

In other words, noted the writers at the World Tribune, Comey admits that he arrived at his conclusion not to prosecute Abedin (or Clinton) not on the basis of the law, but his own preference.

Cruz was incredulous:

On its face, anyone dealing with classified information should know that conduct is impermissible. And let me ask you, how would you handle an FBI Agent who forwarded thousands of classified emails to his or her spouse on a non-government computer?

In a response that should have made front page news, Comey insisted he was “highly confident they wouldn’t be prosecuted.”

You can watch the video through this link and it is well worth the time.

While many would like to make this solely about Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin, it is much bigger than those two miscreants. What it shows is the complete corruption of the FBI and the establishment of two systems of justice – one for everyday criminals who have a general sense of right and wrong, and those elite members of society who are so morally corrupted and entitled that right and wrong do not apply to them.

Donald Trump, do your job! As Chief Executive of this country, it is your duty to make sure that we don't have corruption in our government. And certainly, at the very highest level of law enforcement, we should not have to worry that the FBI is above the law!!!

Trump, do not be afraid - go after the rat-bastard Comey - he protected the traitor, Hillary and her enablers - Huma Abedin and her pervert husband Weiner!! They should all be in JAIL!
