As Written by Newt Gingrich

It is very sobering and a little frightening to realize that the top two officials of the Federal Bureau of Investigation were dishonest.

To fully understand just how dishonest, self-serving and reckless former FBI Director James Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe were during their service, you don’t have to believe me, you only need to read three sources: The memorandum written by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that led to Comey’s firing, the Office of the Inspector General’s report investigating McCabe’s actions as deputy director, and Stewart Baker’s recent article, “The Low Tragedy of Andrew McCabe.”

Reading and examining these three documents together will give you a sense of just how vast and dangerous the swamp has become.

Rosenstein’s memorandum outlining the “serious mistakes” made by Comey during the 2016 Clinton email investigation concluded that Comey was wrong to overstep his authority as FBI director and announce his recommendation that the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails be closed during a press conference.

According to Rosenstein, Comey’s public recommendation to the Justice Department was an abuse of Comey’s power and an overextension of his authority. The FBI’s role in a federal investigation is to determine if there is enough evidence to prosecute a case, while the attorney general designates authority to a federal prosecutor, who then makes a prosecutorial decision.

Rosenstein, quoting former attorney general Michael Mukasey, who served under President George W. Bush, stated that Comey “ ‘stepped way outside his job in disclosing the recommendation in that fashion’ because the FBI director ‘doesn’t make that decision.’ ”

The memo also quotes President Obama’s attorney general, Eric Holder, who asserted that Comey’s decision, “was incorrect. It violated long-standing Justice Department policies and traditions.” Holder determined that it ultimately “broke with … fundamental principles” and “negatively affected public trust in both the Justice Department and the FBI.”
