It all started with Hillary’s illegal server and an investigation was launched prior to her presidential campaign announcement. Later, when FBI Director James Comey stated during a press conference she was reckless in her handling of classified materials but refused to indict her, Democrats sung his praise in unison. But in days before the election when he revealed that classified documents were found on Hillary-accessory Huma Abedin’s husband Anthony Weiner’s laptop mere days before the election, Democrats wanted Comey’s head on a platter.

Now that President Trump has fired Comey, the same Democrats see this as a cover-up on their Russia-stole-the-election whine that’s backed up by zero evidence after months of investigation.
Can we once again call Democrats and their media on their tired old traits of ignorant, vindictive, shortsighted, emotionally irrational, political hypocrisy?
Yes, we can!
Bottom line: the FBI Director was put in the worst possible position by the many deliberate, reckless, illegal (and possibly treasonous) actions of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Had he informed the people of the basis of his investigation before the election, he’d be accused of influencing in favor of Donald J. Trump. Had he remained silent until after the election and then revealed the contents of his investigation should Hillary have won, he’d be accused of withholding information that prevented the people from making an informed, possibly election-swinging decision. Granted, Comey handled it questionably, but leaving everything to Barack Obama and Loretta “tarmac” Lynch would have been problematic as well.
So, while the media screams “Saturday night massacre” in unison and now portray James Comey a victim of a “Nixonian” conspiracy, remember who set all of this intrigue in motion in the first place: Hillary Clinton and her cheerleading media, NOT Donald Trump.
