Let's face they were slow punches but fair. Did Bill Clinton's tarmac meeting influence his reopening of the email scandal. His answer was a hard yes.
Throughout his carrer Comey has been involved ina Clinton investigation all three times. I'm not saying he's against them or witch hunting. He was part time f the whitewater investigation that ultimately found nothing. He's a moderate Republican who throughout his career has done his best to act in his positions ethically as opposed to politically.
When pressed as to why he didn't call a special counselor for the email scandal he said there simply wasn't anything there it would have been punitively unfair and given then wrong impression to the public. This is the man who started the ball rolling towards Bill Clinton's impeachment do not a friend of the Clintons'. He had good reason from experience to reopen based on the inappropriate tarmac talk.
He also revealed that Obama and the AG advised him to call the investigation into the Clinton Email Investigation as a 'matter' instead of 'investigation' which he found deeply troubling.
He also outed himself as preemptively taking detailed memo and wording them so that they would not be classified and free to public knowledge from his very first meeting with Trump. He turned these memos over to a friend with instruction to take to journalists once he became a private citizen.
He aired it all. Neither side is perfect. Anything that wasn't classified he let fly.
