Elder Patriot – Let the The New York Times give you the unvarnished facts:
“For more than a year, an F.B.I. inquiry into allegations that Lawrence G. Nassar, a respected sports doctor, had molested three elite teenage gymnasts followed a plodding pace as it moved back and forth among agents in three cities. The accumulating information included instructional videos of the doctor’s unusual treatment methods, showing his ungloved hands working about the private areas of girls lying facedown on tables.
“But as the inquiry moved with little evident urgency, a cost was being paid. The New York Times has identified at least 40 girls and women who say that Dr. Nassar molested them between July 2015, when he first fell under F.B.I. scrutiny, and September 2016, when he was exposed by an Indianapolis Star investigation. Some are among the youngest of the now-convicted predator’s many accusers — 265, and counting.
“The three alleged victims then at the center of the F.B.I.’s inquiry were world-class athletes; two were Olympic gold medalists. Nearly a year passed before agents interviewed two of the young women.”
“The New York Times has identified at least 40 girls and women who say that Dr. Nassar molested them between July 2015, when he first fell under F.B.I. scrutiny, and September 2016, when he was exposed by an Indianapolis Star investigation.”
It took investigative journalists at the Indianapolis Star to do the work that Comey apparently blocked the FBI from doing.
“For more than a year, an F.B.I. inquiry into allegations that Lawrence G. Nassar, a respected sports doctor, had molested three elite teenage gymnasts followed a plodding pace as it moved back and forth among agents in three cities.”
Despite evidence of underlying crimes that included pedophilia and sexual abuse of young girls, Comey slow-played the FBI’s investigation by shifting the case between agents in different cities.
Keep in mind these were high profile, world-class athletes so he had to be aware
Dr. Nassar’s sickening crimes could not be kept from the public forever. He also had to know that serial child molesters never stop their pursuit for new victims. That means Comey deliberately turned his back on his obligation to protect these innocent children.
That raises the questions, what was the FBI too busy doing instead and why?
July 2015, when the FBI was first alerted to Dr. Nasser’s crimes, might have a familiar ring to it. It was about then that Donald Trump announced his candidacy for the presidency.
The obvious answer is that Comey, knowing that Trump was a wild card they hadn’t anticipated, directed resources that should’ve been allocated to protecting innocent young girls to investigating Hillary’s potential challenger. Was he intent on protecting Hillary or on establishing his control over Donald Trump? Or, both?
Well there’s also this to consider:
On the campaign trail, Donald Trump repeatedly declared his intention to put an end to child trafficking and the pedophilia that accompanies it. The Clintons have long been linked to this dark underworld.
Rumors abound inside the beltway that the threat of exposure for this sin is what keeps politicians under control of party bosses. And, as we have learned from Democrats’ refusal to throw the deeply flawed and now widely detested Hillary overboard, no one has more control than she does.
Within a month of taking office, President Trump announced an initiative to end human trafficking. Does anyone really believe the new president hadn’t discussed this with his FBI director prior to making the announcement? The director was James Comey.
Less than three months later Comey was fired. At the time he was 7 months into illegally (and, fruitlessly) spying on Donald Trump. Why was he fired?
The NY Times account is evidence that he refused to prosecute high profile child molesters in favor of chasing ghosts that don’t exist. How convenient for Hillary Clinton.
That leaves us with this final question:
Was Trump obstructing justice when he fired Comey or did Trump fire his FBI director because he was obstructing justice?
Side note: Since President Trump’s inauguration arrests for pedophilia and human trafficking have soared exponentially when compared to the previous administration.
