“In my view,” says popular syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer, “Comey didn’t want to be remembered as the man who irreversibly altered the course of American political history.”
In a piece over at NewsMax, Krauthammer explains how he came to this view:
Why did he do it? FBI director James Comey spent 14 minutes laying out an unassailable case for prosecuting Hillary Clinton for the mishandling of classified material. Then at literally the last minute, he recommended against prosecution. This is baffling. Under the statute (18 U.S.C. section 793(f)), it’s a felony to mishandle classified information either intentionally or “through gross negligence.” The evidence, as outlined by Comey, is overwhelming.
