Obama appointed James Comey Director of the FBI in yet another of his misguided attempts to "reach out" to Republicans. Like all his other attempts, this one too came back to bite him in the ass. Nobody wants to say that Comey was motivated by animus towards Clinton or Democrats in general, but the animus was pretty evident in his earlier summary of the email investigation.
Is it possible Comey's latest actions are nothing more than arrant cowardice in the face of blustering Republican Congressman? Maybe. I'm willing to let Comey decide for himself whether history records his actions as malicious or merely craven. One way or the other, his reputation is shot.
