Big trouble headed towards J-Edgarland:
“We don’t operate on incomplete information,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with NowThis News, broadcast Wednesday. “We don’t operate on leaks. We operate based on concrete decisions that are made.”
“When this was investigated thoroughly the last time, the conclusion of the F.B.I., the conclusion of the Justice Department, the conclusion of repeated congressional investigations was that she had made some mistakes but that there wasn’t anything there that was prosecutable,” Mr. Obama said.
The president did not mention the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, by name, but it was clear Mr. Obama was referring to him.
The outgoing President could do a solid for the incoming President by sacking Comey. Cleaning up Hoover's nearly century old mess will be much more difficult.
