James Comey: Mueller’s Decision on Trump Charges is ‘Confusing’

Fired FBI director says he can't 'understand what’s going on with the obstruction stuff'

Comey responded to Mueller's final report on Monday with a cryptic tweet of a photo of him in what seems to be woodland.

Former FBI Director James Comey said on Tuesday it was “confusing” that special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation revealed that Presdient Donald Trump did not obstruct justice.

Comey responded to Mueller's final report on Monday with a cryptic tweet of a photo of him in what seems to be woodland. 

But the fired FBI director didn't stop there, he told an audience at the Belk Theatre in Charlotte, North Carolina, that he was confused.

“The part that’s confusing is I can’t quite understand what’s going on with the obstruction stuff,” Comey told the audience, according to NBC.

“And I have great faith in Bob Mueller, but I just can’t tell from the letter why didn’t he decide these questions when the entire rationale for a special counsel is to make sure the politicals aren’t making the key charging decisions,”  he added.

The Trump campaign was found not to have conspired with the Russian government during the 2016 election, as per Mueller’s findings released Sunday.

“The notion that obstruction cases are somehow undermined by the absence of proof of an underlying crime, that is not my experience in 40 years of doing this, nor is it the Department of Justice’s tradition,” said Comey.

“Obstruction crimes matter without regard to what you prove about the underlying crime.”

But Comey said he was "revealed" the special counsel had completed the investigation.

“The good part is that the special counsel was allowed to finish his work and reached a conclusion; that’s very, very important to this country,” he said.

“The Russians really did massively interfere with the 2016 election with the goal of damaging one candidate and helping the other. That was not a hoax. That was a real thing.”

The other fired deputy director of the FBI, Andrew Mccabe, famously insisted that it was possible Trump was an agent of the Russian government on his recent book promotion tour.

Both Comey and McCabe came into possession of the “dossier," paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign and produced by a former British intelligence officer Christopher Steel.

Comey leaked FBI records to the press to ensure that the special counsel would be created to continue the investigation into the Trump campaign.

The special counsel received $25 million of taxpayers money which was used to investigate 'Russian collusion' that effectively id not exist.

Confused?

Comey has a lot to answer for.
