Ok, yes, that was from that report which used a singular phrase in the conclusion to pretend the complete opposite of what the document said.

First, this is wrong. Trump had to a pardon a guy in jail for less than what Clinton did, that was publicly known already. Second, Lisa Page contradicts the claims of the blog sourced.

Next, the decision was made before any investigation, courtesy of Lynch. How many of those FBI people named still have jobs at the FBI? Why?

Classified information : DOES NOT MATTER if there are markings (the pardoned guy was told by the judge in his case "you should have known that this would have been classified"), intent does not matter (the government is smart enough to prevent 'dead drops'), because the government document was on a non-government server is itself a felony regardless of intent.

So, good luck in your faith.
So again, you don't believe in actual facts. From the IG of all people.

Good luck to you with your numerous nutter theories.

You still don't get it?

The FBI is supposed to be an independent agency. Without any interference from POTUS. For the very beginning when he was briefed (when he was POTUS elected) and told about the massive lengths Russia went to, to interfere with our elections and a separate meeting with Comey about the Dossier (Comey told him it was not verified at all, but wanted to make sure he knew about it) - he went on rampage about Russia. Because he knew his administration was being investigated by the FBI to see if there was any connection between anyone in his administration and Russia (and now we know that to be true). And the "legitimacy of his win.

Not our national security - mind you. It was about him.

He fired Comey for the initial Russian investigation, which prompted the Mueller investigation. That is the very definition of Objustrition of Justice.
Guess you do not understand the chain of command. DOJ reports to the President and the FBI reports to DOJ. Trump can get rid of either one of them at any given time.

And I guess you don't understand that if he does that, it has to be for good cause, not because Comey was heading the investigation between possible connection between his campaign and Russians - hence why, again, his OWN DOJ, appointed Muller

(I can't believe I have to keep pointing out over and over again)

And yet another article that debunks your "theory" from Faux News



WASHINGTON (AP) — During the early days of the Russia investigation, FBI officials debated whether Donald Trump’s chance of winning should factor into how aggressively they investigated potential coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, two FBI officials told Congress last year, according to newly released transcripts of their interviews.

Peter Strzok, the former FBI agent who helped lead the investigation, told lawmakers in a closed-door interview that the FBI had received information from an “extremely sensitive source” alleging collusion between the government of Russia and members of the Trump campaign. FBI officials, including then-Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, debated internally how vigorously to follow up on that information given that Democrat Hillary Clinton was seen at the time as likely to defeat Trump, and an aggressive investigation had the potential of exposing the source. Strzok recalled that he disagreed that a candidate’s electability should be part of the equation.

“If there are members of the Trump campaign who are actively illegally colluding with the government of Russia, that’s something the American people need to know, that’s something candidate Trump potentially needs to know. And equally, if they aren’t guilty of anything, that’s also important,” Strzok said. “So my statement there is: We can’t consider, we can’t take into consideration, the likelihood or unlikelihood of anybody’s electoral process. We need to go, based on the gravity of this allegation, go investigate it and get to the bottom of it.”

.
In a statement Thursday, Strzok attorney Aitan Goelman said his client welcomed the release of the transcript. “It is further evidence that, contrary to the impression that the President’s allies in Congress tried to create with their selective and often inaccurate leaks, Pete at all times discharged his duties honorably, patriotically, and without regard to his personal political opinions,” Goelman said.

Gee that is easy. How many causes does he need? All I can do is laugh AT you and how you don't understand the role of the President.

FYI, hey jen....
Why can the president fire the FBI director?
The President has held the power to appoint and dismiss the director of the FBI at his or her discretion since 1968.

The current nomination and confirmation process for the FBI director was created by an amendment to the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968. The amendment established that the position of FBI director was to be nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate.James Comey is only the second FBI director to ever be fired — here's why Trump was able to fire him

Even though it doesn't matter because there were like a dozen other reasons to fire Comey, and his firing had no impact on any investigation.
