Trump accuses James Comey of lying, improperly exonerating Hillary Clinton

Comey began drafting Clinton statement months in advance

Former FBI director drafted exonerating statement before email server investigation was over.

In newly-released documents, the FBI confirms that former Director James Comey sent a draft statement regarding the conclusion of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, months before interviewing her.

The London Economic reported earlier this week how Hillary Clinton abandoned a friendly meet and greet on the Welsh leg of her British tour as a student at Swansea University where she had just been awarded an Honorary Doctorate told her: "Bernie would have won, only you could lose to Trump".

Trump on Wednesday agreed wholeheartedly, and called on the Justice Department to investigate. "Where is Justice Dept?"

Although it's been almost a year since Trump won the presidential election, he still enjoys bashing Clinton occasionally, reliving his time on the campaign trail. "He was the best thing that ever happened to her!"

In 2005, The Hip was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame at the Juno Awards Show in Winnipeg, cementing the band's place in this country's music history.

The documents, many heavily redacted, include one five-page set entitled "Drafts of Director Comeys July 5, 2016 Statement Regarding Email Server Investigation Part 01 of 01", to which Trump is likely referring in his tweets. Clinton herself was not interviewed until July 2, 2016, three days before Comey held a press conference to announce that the Federal Bureau of Investigation would not recommend filing charges against the former secretary of state. The draft statement itself is completely redacted, so it's not at all clear what Comey was preparing to say about Clinton at that time.

Its release follows concerns that Senate judiciary committee members Chuck Grassley and Senator Lindsey Graham raised in August.

U.S. President Bill Clinton (L) and Hilllary Clinton's vice presidential running mate Tim Kaine look on as Democratic U.S. presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Anne Holton, wife of Tim Kaine (R), bat ballons after Hillary Clinton accepted the nomination on the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S. July 28, 2016.

"Honestly, it's that thinking and that is the reason she lost the election", Trump said, after dubbing Clinton's position on the issue "wrong".
