New Book Reveals More About Hillary Clinton

A new book, “We’ve Got People: From Jesse Jackson to AOC, the End of Big Money and the Rise of a Movement,” makes the controversial claim that Hillary Clinton was “ecstatic” when Donald Trump fired FBI director James Comey. The author, Ryan Grim, said members of Hillary’s inner circle spilled their secrets to him during interviews.

“She had spent the winter and spring poring over survey and turnout data, calling friends and former aides relentlessly, analyzing and re-analyzing,” Grim writes. “It was, her friends believed, both part of her grieving process, but also holding her back from moving on. When she learned that Comey had been fired by Trump, she was ecstatic. Comey had finally gotten what he had coming.”

Clinton has not confirmed or denied Grim’s claims. But according to The Daily Beast, Clinton thought Comey’s investigation of her e-mail scandal was over-the-top, and she thought Comey deserved his firing.

“Clinton’s instinctive response was driven by what she felt was Comey’s out-of-line treatment of her presidential candidacy,” The Daily Beast reports. “Just days before the 2016 presidential election, the then-FBI director announced that he was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server after earlier that year declaring her conduct was “extremely careless.” Both moves infuriated Democrats, with some insisting the late-campaign announcement threw the election to Trump. Months later, Trump fired Comey. And prior to then, the White House had DOJ officials put together a memo to assess Comey’s handling of the Clinton investigation, which the president subsequently used to justify the firing.”
