A complaint has been filed against FBI Director James Comey with Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility that accuses him of interfering in a presidential election.

A complaint has been filed against FBI Director James Comey with Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility that accuses him of interfering in a presidential election.

The Democratic Coalition Against Trump released a statement announcing their complaint:

The Democratic Coalition Against Trump filed a complaint with the Department of Justice Office of Professional Responsibility on Friday against FBI Director James Comey for interfering in the Presidential election, following the FBI’s decision to open up an investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails this close to Election Day. Federal employees are forbidden from participating in political activities under the Hatch Act.

“It is absolutely absurd that FBI Director Comey would support Donald Trump like this with only 11 days to go before the election,” said Scott Dworkin, Senior Advisor to the Democratic Coalition Against Trump. “It is an obvious attack from a lifelong Republican who used to serve in the Bush White House, just to undermine her campaign. Comey needs to focus on stopping terrorists and protecting America, not investigating our soon to be President-Elect Hillary Clinton.”

Outrage is growing over Comey’s actions as details about the FBI investigation have revealed that it has nothing to do with Clinton, her emails, or her server.

Director Comey’s motives for sending the letter 11 days before a presidential election have been questioned by both Republicans and Democrats.

If Comey’s actions were politically motivated, he would be in violation of the Hatch Act.

What Republicans initially viewed as a new hope in the presidential election has quickly been exposed as a desperately political ploy.

The American people deserve a full explanation from Director Comey, because the letter that was released today raises more questions than answers.

Reality Check

Hatch Act
“The Hatch Act, a federal law passed in 1939, limits certain political activities of federal employees, as well as some state, D.C., and local government employees who work in connection with federally funded programs. The law’s purposes are to ensure that federal programs are administered in a nonpartisan fashion, to protect federal employees from political coercion in the workplace, and to ensure that federal employees are advanced based on merit and not based on political affiliation.” US Office of Special Council

11/24/15 Opinion:

Specifically, you seek clarification about what “in concert” means with respect to federal employees who are further restricted under the Hatch Act and ask several questions about said employees’ use of social media to engage in political activity. Our guidance is below:

The Hatch Act, 5 U.S.C. §§ 7321-7326, governs the political activity of federal civilian executive branch employees in order to protect the federal workforce from partisan political influence. The Hatch Act prohibits employees from: using their official authority or influence for the purpose of affecting the result of an election; knowingly soliciting, accepting, or receiving political contributions from any person; being candidates for public office in partisan elections;and knowingly soliciting or discouraging the political activity of any individual with business before their employing office. 5 U.S.C. § 7323(a)(1)-(4). The Hatch Act also prohibits employees from engaging in political activity while on duty, in a government building, while wearing an official uniform or insignia, or using an official vehicle. 5 U.S.C. § 7324. Political activity is defined as activity directed toward the success or failure of a political party, candidate
for a partisan political office, or partisan political group. 5 C.F.R. § 734.101.

(There are many more opinions but this was the latest.)

I have no legal training but you seriously want to drag THIS into the cauldron? Idiots! Comey was in violation of this act in July when he bowed to political pressure from Lynch and stated IN HER PLACE that no indictment was forthcoming. DoJ employees including Loretta Lynch and State Department employees, including those fulfilling FOIA, and IRS employees who are targeting specific groups ARE MORE IN VIOLATION OF THE HATCH ACT than Comey who is NOW fulfilling his sworn statement to Congress to keep them apprised of further developments.

I would believe that ANY federal employee helping to fulfill this complaint by action, word, or otherwise would be MORE in violation of the HATCH Act than Comey.

Reid and any others involved in this group might be in violation, at least I would think so, since it also includes official capacity and payment by federal government for their congressional work. I would also speculate that IF THESE EMPLOYEES were to bring this to legal levels that THEY would be impeding an ongoing investigation.

GET OVER IT. Comey bowed to Lynch and Obama in July to not indict Clinton which IS a clear violation of the Hatch Act. Lynch should have already, but definitely now, be stopped along with other attorneys in DoJ not willing to follow the dictates of the law and fulfill their duty as top legal counsel. Anyone including Obama impeding FBI from their duty is I tend to believe suspect of the HATCH Act.

In fact, might Obama himself not be suspect of this act when during his prior interviews HE made statements directly castigating Trump and others, including our country in front of foreign audiences?  Might he not ALSO be in violation of the HATCH Act when using AirForce One in campaigning for Hillary Clinton or even speaking on her behalf?

    Dear Friends,

    The libs can’t help themselves in protecting their lies and betrayal of America.

    This action will only bring more focus to what any honest & sincere person can conclude….that Hillary is as guilty as sin.

    Like animals that eat their young, wait and see how this unfolds…

    If I was Comey, I’d come out today, state that his agents have found conclusive/factual evidence … recommend inditment or grand jury to decide…silience the wicked…behold the truth!

    • Hardnox says:

      Nope… should that occur this close to the election it would cause a Constitutional crisis and the election would be suspended.

    • Uriel says:

      Hi Vic As much as I would love to see that happen. I have to agree rocking the boat before the election results are in is a guaranteed way Obama could grab the reins for a while longer. Then we would really be fanning a dying ember back to life. Everything he is doing now suggests (like actively campaigning for Hillary) suggests he would like nothing better than to be crowned a third term.

  2. What should happen is that the FBI should march into the DoJ, Lynch’s office, and arrest her for interfering with a criminal investigation. Then to the white mosque and dragging o’shitbag out on charges of high treason – aiding and abetting the enemy (ISIS).
    Then onto to congress and cleaning house, there, too.
    Let the “swamp” be drained!

  3. Hardnox says:

    This attack on Comey is classic “bait & switch” tactics used by the left. It doesn’t mean squat except to change the subject and create a headline then to be parroted by the media to defuse lemming concerns about Hildabeast criminality.

  4. skip says:

    I think the “bait & switch” fits this Buffalo Dung fits the left wing perfect..

    • Uriel says:

      So do I. Which calls into question, just what the H*#ll they are trying to divert attention FROM. I am betting something to do with UN since there has been UN letters attempting to interfere with US policies and politics recently. And the idiots in Colorado running a sign up sheet to get the UN to intervene is equally a problem.

  5. myfoxmystere says:

    0bama’s in violation of the Hatch act by campaigning for Kountry Klub Kami Harris’s Senate Race for the vacated seat of retiring California Senator Barbara Boxer.

    • Uriel says:

      That’s. The way I see it too MyFox. Clinton group SAID they have reimbursed the gov for stuff like Airforce One but has not even mentioned any funds repayment on Obamas part. According to Judicial Watch he spent $3.6million ALONE on a “golf” DNC funding trip to Pasadena. Where is that reimbursement for taxpayers?

      • myfoxmystere says:

        We’re stuck with the bill, and Moonbeam won’t dare ask for payments from Hildebeest.

        • Uriel says:

          Yep. Just like the nearly half a billion taxpayers have shelled out on WH parties and vacations for the wannabe dictator

          • myfoxmystere says:

            0bama & Moonbeam continue to violate the Hatch Act by endorsing KKK Harris for the Senate Seat Vacancy. They know KKK Harris will work in cahouts with Hildebeest, destroying evidence and giving passes to BLACK LIES MATTER.

            • Uriel says:

              I dont know anything about her except she has 3 strikes against her from the start. She’s Democrat, held AG post and was against a lot of US laws by supporting the socialist governor, and from California. I’m guessing she is the younger version of Pelosi?

  6. upaces88 says:

    When James Comey decided not to indict Hillary Clinton, the whole American public was shocked. Everyone expected him to charge Hillary. However, now we know the real reason why Comey didn’t charge Hillary.
    His personal and professional relationships — all undisclosed as he announced the Bureau would not prosecute Clinton — reinforce bipartisan concerns that he may have politicized the criminal probe.

    These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.
    Comey earned $6 million in one year alone from Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor that very year.

    According to records, Lockheed Martin is also a member of the American Chamber of Commerce in Egypt, which paid Bill Clinton $250,000 to deliver a speech in 2010. In 2010, Lockheed Martin won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.

    In 2013, Comey became a board member, a director, and a Financial System Vulnerabilities Committee member of the London bank HSBC Holdings. When our source called the Chinatown offices of D.C. law firm DLA Piper and asked for “Peter Comey,” a receptionist immediately put him through to Comey’s direct line. But Peter Comey is not featured on the DLA Piper website. Peter Comey serves as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper. James Comey was not questioned about his relationship with Peter Comey in his confirmation hearing.

    DLA Piper is the firm that performed the independent audit of the Clinton Foundation in November during Clinton-World’s first big push to put the email scandal behind them. DLA Piper’s employees taken as a whole represent a major Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign donation bloc and Clinton Foundation donation base.
    DLA Piper ranks #5 on Hillary Clinton’s all-time career Top Contributors list, just ahead of Goldman Sachs. And here is another thing: Peter Comey has a mortgage on his house that is owned by his brother James Comey, the FBI director. Trickle-down corruption.

    When President Obama nominated Comey to become FBI director in 2013, Comey promised the United States Senate that he would recuse himself on all cases involving former employers. He lied. He has in fact politicized the FBI— that is supposed to support the Rule of Law.

    The FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton needs to be re-opened, Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch should recuse themselves and Congress should demand the appointment of a Special Prosecutor.
    To verify this email, you can go to google.com and type in: James Comey’s brother and the Clinton Foundation
    As you can see, Hillary is tightly connected to Comey. If you still didn’t know why Hillary wasn’t indicted, now you know!
