Despite previously claiming to have “great faith” in special counsel Robert Mueller, former FBI Director James Comey seems to be hung up on the results of the investigation.
Mueller ultimately decided the he would not make a conclusion one way or the other in regards to President Trump being guilty of possible obstruction. The decision was left up to Attorney General William Barr, who after reading Mueller’s report declare that Trump was not guilty of obstruction.
This was not welcome to news to Comey, who has been at odds with Trump even before the president fired him from his position in 2017.
“I can’t quite understand what’s going on with the obstruction stuff,” Comey said at a Learning Society of Queens University event. “I have great faith in Bob Mueller, but I just can’t tell from the letter why didn’t he decide these questions when the entire rationale for a special counsel is to make sure the politicals aren’t making the key charging decisions.”
Comey also said, “I think it’s very very important that the American people get transparency,” while calling for the full report to be released.
Fortunately, Comey is no longer in a position to call for anything.
