Sean Hannity is convinced that “the fix was in” following revelations about James Comey’s draft statement on Hillary Clinton’s email investigation.
Copies of the edits from the former FBI chief’s July 2016 statement that exonerated Clinton in the probe were released Thursday by the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson.
Line-by-line views of the draft show edits like “grossly negligent” being downgraded to “extremely careless,” and “reasonably likely” being changed to just “possible” that “hostile actors” gained access to the private email account of the then-secretary of state.
“All of this continues to prove that the fix was in from the very beginning of what is a farce of an investigation,” Hannity said on Fox News’ “Hannity” Wednesday.
Clinton was exonerated before she was even investigated, he pointed out, noting that she and members of her staff were interviewed two months after Comey’s draft statement from May 2016.
Hannity also cited another report that indicated Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin were allowed by the State Department to remove records they deemed “personal” and “unclassified, non-record materials.”
“This is beyond outrageous, and it shows that there is a different set of rules and standards for the Clintons and their allies,” Hannity said. “It is all part of a pattern when it comes to the Clintons. The fix is in all the time.”
Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett told the Fox News host that Comey and others set out to let Clinton off the hook for “purely political motives in the face of overwhelming evidence of criminality.”
“Comey initially wrote in his exoneration paper that the sheer volume of classified documents on Clinton server is evidence of criminality. And somebody removed that from the statement in clearing Hillary Clinton,” Jarrett said.
Hannity summed it all up in a simple statement.
“If the fix was in,” he said, “Comey should go to jail.”
