Comey’s FBI Too Busy Framing Trump to Stop a Serial Child Predator
The former team doctor for USA Gymnastics, a man named Larry Nassar, is serving a 100-year sentence for sexually abusing underage girls on the team, as well as possession of a huge stash of child pornography.
The FBI under former Director James Comey knew about serious allegations against Nassar as far back as 2015. They learned about allegations against Nassar, but then sat on the information for 14 months, allowing Nassar to molest at least 40 additional girls and women before a formal investigation was opened.
But you can’t blame James Comey for this. He was too busy trying to frame President Trump on false charges of Russian collusion to worry about dozens of underage victims.
The Wall Street Journal reports that the Justice Department’s Inspector General is trying to determine why it took so long for the FBI to react to the accusations against Nassar.
The Nassar case is a truly shameful episode in the history of the FBI. The good news is that the Inspector General is taking it very seriously, and the investigation could lead to criminal charges against former Obama FBI officials.
As the team doctor for USA Gymnastics, Larry Nassar traveled the globe and had access to hundreds of the world’s most talented young female athletes. The FBI first learned of accusations against Nassar in July of 2015.
It was a federal case because Nassar was traveling across state lines and even across international boundaries as he molested the girls. But the FBI did nothing for 14 months.
The FBI never took any action against Larry Nassar until several of his former victims filed a lawsuit against the University of Michigan and USA Gymnastics in September of 2016. The New York Times identified 40 victims who were molested by Nassar between July 2015 and when he suddenly resigned in September 2015. Every one of those crimes could have been prevented if James Comey’s FBI had taken the allegations seriously.
Remember what was going on in 2016?
The FBI was busy exonerating Hillary Clinton of her email treason crimes. Smartphones and laptops were smashed with hammers.
Every witness close to Hillary was granted immunity before they were allowed to testify. Comey wrote his “Hillary exoneration” speech before she had even been interviewed by agents. Comey himself held a press conference in July of 2016 in which he explained that Hillary was guilty of being extremely dumb with classified intelligence, but not grossly negligent, and therefore she was innocent.
What else was the FBI doing in 2016? Surveilling Carter Page through a series of fraudulent FISA warrants.
They were listening to every one of Page’s phone calls, reading every text message and every email, and shadowing his every move. They were also sending multiple spies, including professor Stephan Halper and “honeypot” Azra Turk, to spy on George Papadopoulos, another low-level Trump campaign volunteer.
They had way too many eggs that they were juggling by August of 2016 to worry about Larry Nassar.
In fact, Larry Nassar was so far off of James Comey’s radar in 2016 that he ran for School Board in Holt, Michigan (and lost).
Comey sent his FBI agents to shadow every move of the members of the Trump campaign, based on nothing more than the fake “evidence” concocted by Fusion GPS, written by a foreign former British spy, and which was paid for by the Hillary Clinton campaign.
They had no actual evidence against anyone from the Trump campaign.
USA Gymnastics had video evidence, which they turned over to the FBI in July of 2015. The evidence is too repulsive to describe here, but it didn’t stir the FBI’s interest enough to get them to open a formal investigation into Larry Nassar.
James Comey was too concerned with salvaging Hillary Clinton’s campaign to worry about a bunch of women and girls being preyed upon by a serial predator. That must be the “higher loyalty” that Comey blathers about in his self-righteous biography.
Comey’s FBI finally got around to arresting Larry Nassar in December of 2016, after Hillary had lost the historic election. Agents found 37,000 child pornography images and videos on Nassar’s home computers.
Nassar was a serial predator operating right out in the open at a Big 10 university, molesting some of the most familiar names in women’s gymnastics. But don’t blame James Comey for letting Nassar commit his heinous crimes for so long. Comey was really busy with other stuff back then.
