WSJ Editor: Comey 'Sailed Into Clintons' Personal Bermuda Triangle'
Wall Street Journal Deputy Editorial Page Editor Daniel Henninger said former FBI Director James Comey's departure is the product of him "sailing into the Clintons' personal Bermuda Triangle."
Henninger said as much in a piece in the Wall Street Journal Friday, and told Martha MacCallum on "The Story" that he is indeed the latest victim of that phenomenon.
He said that because former Attorney General Loretta Lynch allowed herself to be compromised in the Clinton email investigation by meeting with President Clinton at Sky Harbor Airport, Comey thought he was now leading the Justice Department.
Referring to Comey's July 2016 public statement against recommending charges for Hillary Clinton, Henninger said the FBI director is not the proper person to make a public statement on the matter.
From that point forward, Comey got "sucked into this email server story," tried to further investigate it, but fell victim to traditional Clinton "stonewalling, denial and legal deflection."
"Comey was brought down by this Clinton method," he said.
Henninger said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein - the FBI director's boss - made it clear that Comey acted improperly in regard to his public statements.
Acting Director Andrew McCabe said a portion of the agency's staff is "frustrated" by the outcome of the Clinton case.
Henninger and MacCallum discussed how a new director could "breathe new life" into the investigation.
