Why Allen West Is 'Delighted' Over the FBI's Clinton Verdict

“Delighted” isn’t a word used much by conservatives to describe their feelings after FBI Director James Comey announced the FBI would not be recommending criminal charges against Hillary Clinton over her email scandal. But “delighted” is exactly what retired Lt. Col. Allen West felt.

“I can’t thank Director Comey enough for coming to this decision,” the former congressman wrote on Tuesday.

Why, you ask?

“My concern has always been that Barack Obama would release the hounds on Mrs. Clinton and then push for his vice president, Joe Biden, to be the Democrat nominee. And then, to placate the far lefty socialists, who own the Democrat party, Obama would position Sen. Elizabeth Warren as Biden’s VP. That would be a really tough ticket to beat, since Joe Biden’s favorables, regardless of gaffes and such, are extremely high,” West explained.

He went on to argue that Comey actually highlighted Clinton’s serious character flaws—something Guy also pointed out in his post, “The FBI’s Comprehensive, Devastating, Indictmentless Indictment of Hillary Clinton.”

“Comey has said Hillary Clinton is not reasonable — is that who you want as president and commander in chief?” he asked. “And Mrs. Clinton’s actions were not appropriate or acceptable. That follows with Mrs. Clinton’s blatant lie about not having any classified material on her private server — her unclassified, private, personal server. Hillary Clinton stated there was no classified correspondence she emailed — wrong, a lie. Lastly, Comey confirmed Hillary Clinton inappropriately deleted the property of the American people — State Department, work-related emails.”

West further argued that accepting there are political elites who are above the law is probably the new normal, but ultimately, it will be the American people who have the last say.

“Thanks, Director Comey, you may have just become the one person who will end the corrupt reign of the Clinton Family, and terminate any chance for an honorable legacy for Barack Obama,” West concluded.
