From The Dougherty Report Archives: On 7/5/16, then FBI Director James Comey delivered a stunning statement in which he announced that there would NOT be a further investigation into the Clinton email scandal. Comey told the American people, "I know there will be intense public debate in the wake of this recommendation, as there was throughout this investigation. What I can assure the American people is that this investigation was done competently, honestly, and independently. No outside influence of any kind was brought to bear." Did he lie? Over the 18 months since then it appears they did everything possible to protect, not prosecute Mrs. Clinton. The next morning, attorney Lionel (from LionelMedia) appeared on The Dougherty Report to try to help us make sense of it all.
