Former DOJ official J. Christian Adams tells us the BIG TAKEAWAY from Comey hearing

Former DOJ official and legal guru J. Christian Adams tweeted out what he believes is the big takeaway from the Comey hearing in Congress, and it’s not about Comey:

So it was in essence the DOJ all along that chose not to recommend prosecution of Hillary, not the FBI. That’s probably why Lynch felt so comfortable saying she would accept Comey’s recommendation, because she knew it was the DOJ’s recommendation.



I believed Comey was pressured into letting Hillary off the hook, but Adams doesn’t believe that, suggesting it was more about DOJ influence and tradition than about any kind of coercion or pressure. Considering he worked there, I’ll defer to his judgement on this.

Here’s a few more of his tweets as he defended his comments that I thought were relevant:
