Gregg Jarrett: Sad and infuriating – FBI director’s tortured interpretation of the law

As evidence mounts that the Director of the FBI subverted justice, damaged the reputation of the Bureau and squandered the support of his agents, calls for his resignation will surely escalate.

Can there be any confidence in his future judgments and decisions, as long as he continues to preside over the once-venerated Federal Bureau of Investigation?

That is the plight James Comey now faces in light of the exclusive story published by in which a person closely involved in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails revealed that career FBI agents and attorneys who dedicated themselves to the year-long probe unanimously believed she should have been criminally charged.

More than 100 agents and analysts were assigned to the case. They all thought Clinton committed crimes. And maybe Comey believed it, too. But he chose to ignore both the evidence and the law. It is sad and confounding and infuriating, all at the same time.
