Kiss My Butt Loretta: Comey defied Lynch in telling Congress about renewed Hillary probe

Of course taking some poetic license but essentially this is what Comey has done. 
It should be interesting to see what Comey has on Hillary.  He already had enough to indict her the first time around.  
NY Post reports FBI Director James Comey went rogue when he told Congress that he has reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s e-mails — defying direct orders from his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, according to multiple reports.

“Comey made an independent decision to alert the Hill,” a choice he made despite Lynch’s explicit instructions that he say nothing, a Justice official told the Washington Post on Saturday.
It’s Justice Department policy not to comment on any ongoing investigation, especially when doing so could affect an impending election.

But Comey felt that the upcoming election was precisely why the public needed to be informed, an administration official told the New Yorker.

Comey was concerned that word of the re-opened investigation would leak out and raise questions of a coverup.

He also wanted to keep his promise to update Congress with any developments in the case, the administration source said.

The probe was reopened after e-mails relevant to the probe into Clinton’s private server turned up in the computer of disgraced ex-congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
