Was FBI Director Comey recommendation not to indict Hillary fraught with conflict of interest?

"FBI Director Comey is a board member of Clinton Foundation connected bank HSBC."
It seems that our beloved FBI Director is or until very recently was a director and board member of HSBC, which is tightly connected to the Clinton Foundation. Check out some of these links:

“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.”

“Clinton foundation received up to $81m from clients of controversial HSBC bank”
https://www.clintonfoundation.org/search/node/HSBC
It’s like a revolving door of money and special projects that the bank and the CF are involved in.
This is the same HSBC that was accused of laundering drug cartel money, was heavily involved in the LIBOR scandal, and who knows what else, and all while our esteemed FBI Director James “she didn’t intend it” Comey was part of the senior leadership.

the hack press has corrupt conflicts of interest, too. See Clintonopolis.

but hey - when leftists rake in big bucks, it's all good.

That's how they own him, so, yeah, conflict of interest.

The overriding quality of this administration is that people don't do their jobs, they protect them. CYA and little else. One of Trump's most attractive qualities to me is "Your're fired." A phrase badly needed in government, but rarely used.

IOW, it's just like Chicago.

bags, I agree. But govt. is a different ballgame. I have worked in both the private and public sector. Govt. workers are like private union employees on steroids. He can fire his own political appointees. But, he's also a loyal guy, so he might be slow on the trigger. DC is its own world and even Reagan didn't make a dent in that culture. We need to start @ the bottom, that being Congress. Vote out every incumbent.

It doesn't matter anymore why Comey chose not to recommend indictment. She walks. That's it. The only thing now is that a mentally unstable stooge finds it within himself to put her out of his misery on his way out. Good luck to you whoever you are. You'd be doing this country a massive service.
