Former Justice Department official Victoria Toensing says
more and more evidence shows FBI Director James Comeymade basic errors in the investigation of Hillary
Clinton’shandling of classified
information, and many FBI personnel believe his conduct has embarrassed the
In July, Comey offered a long list of poor decisions and
“extremely careless” behavior by Clinton because she ran all of her email
through a private email server. Then Comey said there was no intent by Clinton
to break the law and no precedent existed for prosecuting the case. Therefore,
Clinton would not be charged.
Since then, the FBI has released more and more evidence
from the case, leaving Toensing and others with deep reservations about Comey’s
competence. The latest revelations include the extension of immunity to Clinton
State Department Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, that President Obama communicated
with Clinton via her server under a pseudonym and that Comey allowed one
prominent Democrat attorney to represent four different witnesses in the case.
“I think Jim Comey has to go,” Toensing told WND and
Radio America. “I can’t tell you the number of present federal prosecutors and
FBI people who have been talking to my
husband (former U.S. Attorney Joe diGenova) and me about how upset
they are with Jim Comey and his performance and how it’s embarrassed the FBI.”

While admitting any punishment for Comey is unlikely, Toensing is calling on
Congress to rebuke him.
“Congress should at least pass some kind of a resolution
condemning him for his inability, it seems, to conduct an investigation in a
way that a first-year federal prosecutor would know how to do,” Toensing said.
Mills is one of multiple people who received limited or
full immunity during the investigation. Toensing said that should have been
unnecessary, but Comey failed to take one of the most basic steps in law to
further the investigation.
“You have to open a grand jury,” she said. “Why didn’t
the director open a grand jury? In his report, he complains that he didn’t get
certain documents. He tried to get these documents but couldn’t get them. Well,
do you know what you do in an investigation? You open a grand jury. Then you
issue a subpoena and you get those documents.”
She said that step would have been particularly important
“If he had a grand jury open, he would have been able to
subpoena the computer of Cheryl Mills,” Toensing explained. “So he wouldn’t
have had to give her immunity. He could have just subpoenaed it, and he would
have gotten that computer.”
Even more bizarre, despite Mills being given immunity –
which is protection from criminal prosecution – Mills was allowed to sit in on
the FBI’s interview of Clinton in July. Is this common practice?
“I’ve never heard of it,” Toensing said.
She’s also never heard of an investigation where a single
attorney has been allowed to represent so many critical witnesses.
“He allows Beth Wilkinson, a known Democrat, to represent
two attorneys (including Mills) and two other people. He allowed one lawyer to
represent four people. That’s unheard of,” Toensing said. “Just think how she
got to coordinate their testimony.”
Toensing said the new revelation that Obama emailed
Clinton on the private server raises another red flag.
“It seems that he also thinks the president was involved,
because now we know from the weekend dump that the president was using an
alias. Therefore, the president had to know about this use of the private
server,” Toensing said. “Now, he’s got the White House involved. He’s got the Democrat
nominee involved. He just didn’t want to deal with it.”
She believes Comey, who has long had a reputation for
seeing the law in black and white, wanted to avoid injecting the FBI into the
middle of a contentious campaign season.
In addition, Toensing is flabbergasted that no one is
facing charges for destroying evidence despite the tens of thousands of emails
that Clinton admits her legal team deleted. Clinton claims they were all
personal matters, but previous FBI document released dispel that argument.
Toensing said that fact shows clear intent, regardless of
Comey’s insistence he could find none.
“Destroying evidence is just the most wicked evidence one
could have against a person,” she said. “I have never heard of lawyers
purposely destroying evidence and not being the target of an investigation
“I would be shaking in my boots if I had a subpoena from
the Justice Department for a client and I went in and said, ‘Oh, we went
through the files and we thought three file cabinets weren’t important so we
just threw those away,'” Toensing said.

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.
The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
They may be more likely to go to Heaven for good intentions yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. This very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be “cured” against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.~ C.
