James Comey Calls for DOJ To Reject Trump’s Wiretapping Claim But Comey Has a Conflict of Interest In Doing So
Why is the FBI Director, James Comey refuting the claim made by President Trump that his campaign was wiretapped by former President Barack Obama following the White House’s demand for a congressional investigation on Sunday?
Where are the Democrats and mainstream media calling for Comey to recuse himself because of a conflict of interest due to his connection to the Obama administration?
While people will differ in their opinions as to why Comey is requesting the Department of Justice to issue a public rejection of Trump’s allegations against Obama, many conservatives believe it is due to “personal” reasons to protect himself.
Is there any reason for the public to doubt Comey’s integrity?
You may recall that it was the FBI under the direction of Comey who refused to prosecute former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in connection with her email server.
Breitbart subsequently wrote an article in 2016 claiming that:
A review of FBI Director James Comey’s professional history and relationships shows that the Obama cabinet leader — now under fire for his handling of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — is deeply entrenched in the big-money cronyism culture of Washington, D.C. His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.
These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.
The Clinton Foundation came under fire when it was accused of receiving donations from foreign countries who were given access to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in exchange for their donation.
A guest on one of my shows, Dr. Jerome Corsi, spoke extensively about the alleged wrongdoing of the Clinton Foundation in his book, “Partners in Crime: The Clinton’s Scheme to Monetize the White House for Personal Profit” naming those connected to the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation “scandal.”

Reportedly, Comey is concerned that such statement by Trump makes it appear that the FBI broke the law.
Would the public believe Comey’s FBI broke the law if he didn’t have a possible conflict of interest in calling on the DOJ to shutdown any investigation?
Also, because Comey served in the Obama’s administration in the role of FBI Director, shouldn’t he “recuse” himself in this matter to assure the public that there is no impropriety occurring.
If there is an objection to be made for an investigation it certainly shouldn’t be coming from Comey.
Also, why be concerned about Trump calling for an investigation if such examination would ultimately show that the FBI had no involvement in wiretapping at all?
It seems that Comey would welcome such an investigation to clear his own name and that of his department.
Because of his call for a public rejection by the DOJ, it is logical for the public to assume that Comey’s quick reaction is a sign that he’s possibly hiding something from them.
To coin a phase by Shakespeare, “The “FBI Director” doth protest too much, methinks.”
