Comey’s claim that a tech guy wiped emails without ANY direction from anyone is too hard to swallow

Questioned by Rep. Ron DeSantis on multiple issues on FBI operations, Director James Comey insisted that his agency was striving for complete transparency.

Comey testified before a  House Oversight Committee hearing on Wednesday and was grilled by the Florida Republican on issues from terrorism, rising crime rates and the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails.

DeSantis questioned Comey about the immunity status granted to Clinton aides in the federal probe of the then-secretary of state’s use of a private email server, specifically IT tech Paul Combetta’s role in using Bleach Bit to delete some of those emails after Congress issued a subpoena.

Comey explained that Combetta, who was granted immunity to testify, offered an account that was “uncontradicted by hard facts.”  DeSantis found that hard to believe.

He noted that during his military service, “if you had compromised top-secret information, there would have been a court-martial in your future.”
