During his congressional hearing yesterday, Director James Comey of the Federal Bureau of Investigation did not face any heat from regarding a review which was released of his “professional history and relationships.”
The review includes connections to Lockheed Martin, the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Holdings, and financial ties to his brother, Peter Comey at the DLA Piper law firm.
Per Breitbart News:
These concerns focus on millions of dollars that Comey accepted from a Clinton Foundation defense contractor, Comey’s former membership on a Clinton Foundation corporate partner’s board, and his surprising financial relationship with his brother Peter Comey, who works at the law firm that does the Clinton Foundation’s taxes.
Breitbart reports the review says the FBI Director received several million dollars from a Clinton Foundation donor:
How much money did James Comey make from Lockheed Martin in his last year with the company, which he left in 2010? More than $6 million in compensation.
Lockheed Martin is a Clinton Foundation donor. The company admitted to becoming a Clinton Global Initiative member in 2010.
The review goes on to highlight his tenure at HSBC Holdings, a company which often partners with the Clinton Foundation:
“Mr. Comey’s appointment will be for an initial three-year term which, subject to re-election by shareholders, will expire at the conclusion of the 2016 Annual General Meeting,” according to HSBC company records.
HSBC Holdings and its various philanthropic branches routinely partner with the Clinton Foundation.
James Comey’s connection with his brother, Peter Comey, may also reveal connections to the Clinton Foundation:
Peter Comey serves as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas” for DLA Piper. James Comey was not questioned about his relationship with Peter Comey in his confirmation hearing.
DLA Piper is the firm that performed the independent audit of the Clinton Foundation in November during Clinton-World’s first big push to put the email scandal behind them. DLA Piper’s employees taken as a whole represent a major Hillary Clinton 2016 campaign donation bloc and Clinton Foundation donation base.
DLA Piper ranks #5 on Hillary Clinton’s all-time career Top Contributors list, just ahead of Goldman Sachs.
