Comey showed depths of DC swamp -- Bob Drane

June 15, 2017 GMT

Poor James Comey. First his old boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, directed him to convert an FBI “investigation” into a mere “matter,” after her one-on-one tarmac chat with former President Bill Clinton, whose wife was the target of said “matter.”

Then a second boss, President Donald Trump, repeats the one-on-one treatment, “hoping” Comey can go easy on another target, former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

The common thread across these two moments is the level of dodgy ethical standards that permeates the Washington swamp.

Too bad for we the people.
