Elizabeth Warren Claims Russia Responsible For Comey Firing

By  | 

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has voiced yet another situation in which the Russians are to blame, and that is the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

Since the election defeat of its presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party has devoted much of its time towards insisting that the election was stolen due to a collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, while at the same time, trying to hide the fact that it was discovered through Wikileaks to have been colluding with the Mainstream Media to get Hillary elected.

Lacking any real evidence, other than allegations and accusations from “unnamed sources” who held positions within the Obama administration, the Left has demanded multiple investigations be launched into the matter, and the Drive By Media has dutifully run with suggestive stories to aid the narrative.

Speaking on MSNBC’s All In, Senator Warren has expanded the blame-Russians-for-everything-game to also include the firing of FBI Director James Comey.

“Comey was not fired because of Hillary. Comey was fired because of the Russians.”

Comey had come under fire during the 2016 presidential election after the conclusion of his agency’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton email server.

Republicans were furious when Comey laid out the facts that Hillary was guilty of grossly mishandling classified information and potentially endangering national security, but that the FBI was not recommending a prosecution because they could not prove that she intended to break the law.

He explained,

“From the group of 30,000 e-mails returned to the State Department, 110 e-mails in 52 e-mail chains have been determined by the owning agency to contain classified information at the time they were sent or received.

Eight of those chains contained information that was Top Secret at the time they were sent; 36 chains contained Secret information at the time; and eight contained Confidential information, which is the lowest level of classification.

Separate from those, about 2,000 additional e-mails were ‘up-classified’ to make them Confidential; the information in those had not been classified at the time the e-mails were sent.”

Democrats, on the other hand, were angry at the FBI Director because of the outcome of the election, and place partial blame for Hillary’s loss on his shoulders.

Just eleven days before the election, Comey announced that the FBI would be reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton after new information was discovered on the laptop of disgraced senator Anthony Wiener.

They subsequently closed the investigation when they discovered there was nothing new or relevant, although by that time, the damage had been done.

Since the election, multiple high-ranking Democrats, including Maxine Waters (D-CA) and Chuck Schumer (D-NY), have proclaimed that they no longer have confidence in James Comey.

However, after Comey’s firing, those same Democrats have expressed outrage over the matter, seemingly forgetting that they were among those who had been calling for President Trump to fire the FBI Director.

Warren said,

“The timing makes this, I think, entirely clear. The fact that all during the campaign, Donald Trump kept citing Comey and using Comey. Once he was elected, he embraced Comey.

And now to turn around, months later, and say, oh yeah, that was just terrible. Nah, come on. There’s nobody left in America who believes that Donald Trump fired James Comey in order to try — because James Comey was mean to Hillary Clinton.”
