Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) says FBI Director James Comey is “tainted” by ties to the Clinton Foundation.

“The swamp runs deep,” she wrote on Facebook. "Where are congressional ‘investigators’ on this conflict of interest issue?”

“Why aren’t dots more clearly connected by those in authority, those privy to information that we peasants are not?” the GOP’s 2008 vice presidential nominee asked.


"Why is tainted Comey still part of Team Trump? How long does he get to ride the train?”

Comey on Monday confirmed the FBI is probing Russia’s meddling in the 2016 presidential election, including possible collusion between now-President Trump’s campaign and Moscow.

The FBI director also revealed the Department of Justice (DOJ) has “no information” backing Trump’s claims former President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaPelosi receives John F.

Palin’s Facebook post included a link to an article on her website noting links between Comey and the Clinton Foundation.

The article cites a September 2016 Breitbart News report titled “Exposed: FBI Director James Comey’s Clinton Foundation Connection.”

Breitbart first cited more than $6 million Comey earned in 2010 as the general counsel and vice president for Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin donated to the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative that year, it added.

Breitbart next pointed to Comey’s time as a board member, director and Financial System Vulnerabilities Commission member at HSBC Holdings in 2013. The London-based bank and its various philanthropic branches routinely partnered with the Clinton Foundation, it said.

Breitbart additionally noted that Peter Comey, James Comey’s brother, works at DLA Piper law firm in Washington, D.C. Peter Comey serves as “Senior Director of Real Estate Operations for the Americas,” the right-leaning website said. DLA Piper performed an independent audit of the Clinton Foundation last November, according to Breitbart.
