FBI Director James Comey defended the work of his agents Wednesday in a memo to staff, arguing the decision to spare Hillary Clinton and her aides from prosecution for their mistreatment of classified information was not a difficult one. “I have no patience for suggestions that we conducted ourselves as anything but what we are — honest, competent, and independent,” Comey wrote in the memo, first obtained by CNN. “Those suggesting that we are ‘political’ or part of some ‘fix’ either don’t know us, or they are full of baloney (and maybe some of both).” […] “I almost ordered the material held until Tuesday because I knew we would take all kinds of grief for releasing it before a holiday weekend, but my judgment was that we had promised transparency and it would be game-playing to withhold it from the public just to avoid folks saying stuff about us,” he wrote. “We don’t play games. So we released it Friday.”That sounds more like Obama-style “transparency” reasoning, but the FBI? It’s weird how each and every one of Comey’s careful considerations just happen to fall in Clinton’s favor. Also: Hillary is having a news conference this morning. It’ll be the first time she’s taken reporters’ questions (on the ground) in about 280 days and might provide a clue as to how her campaign thinks she did at last night’s Commander in Chief Forum. **Written by Doug Powers Twitter @ThePowersThatBe
