Report: Obama Admin Blocked Comey From Writing Op-ed Last Summer About Russian Meddling

FBI Director Comey wanted to write an op-ed last summer about the so-called Russian meddling in the U.S. election, but members of the Obama administration blocked him because they wanted to release a ‘coordinated statement from multiple agencies’.

Fox News reports:

According to a new report, FBI Director James Comey was set to write an op-ed last summer about suspected Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

Obama administration officials, however, blocked him from writing the piece, Newsweek reported, citing two unnamed sources.

The officials, including Secretary of State John Kerry, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson and National Security Adviser Susan Rice, reportedly preferred the message be communicated via a coordinated statement from multiple agencies.

Now why on earth would an FBI Director want to write an op-ed of an ongoing investigation during a Presidential campaign? One reason we have suspected here at TGP is that Comey was being blackmailed by Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton had knowledge that the Trump camp was being surveilled and used that as leverage to push Comey into attacking her opponent, Trump. She also used this knowledge to pressure Comey into letting her off the hook for her email scandal.

In any event, FBI Director, Comey needs to be fired. The FBI needs to be overhauled. He is part of the swamp and he needs to go.
