Americans will be hearing more revelations about Loretta Lynch and James Comey in the near future.
One hint of what is to come was from a controversial statement made by former FBI Director Comey’s testimony to Congress Thursday. When asked about the ex-Attorney General Lynch attempt to change the narrative of the Hillary Clinton email investigation, Comey said he was told not to call it an ‘Investigation’ anymore, call it a ‘Matter.’
“Well, it concerned me, because we were at the point where we refused to confirm the existence of an investigation –as we usually do– for months,” Comey testified. “And it was getting to a place where that looked silly, because the campaigns were talking about interacting with the FBI in the course of our work.”
“The Clinton campaign at the time was using all kinds of euphemisms, ‘security review,’ ‘matter.’ Things like that.”
“For what was going on. We were getting to a place where the Attorney General and I were going to have to testify and talk publicly about it, and I wanted to know if she would authorize us to confirm we had an investigation,” Comey continued. “And she said yes, but don’t call it that, call it a ‘Matter.’ And I said why would I do that? And [Lynch] said just call it a ‘Matter.’”
Euphemisms in the Clinton campaign? Comey was talking about the rewording and special codes the Clinton’s and Washington liberals have used to neutralize or understate the obvious to people not easily swayed by political correctness.
Unfortunately for Clinton, her most famous euphemism—Deplorables— back fired. After Comey’s testimony, Lynch’s most notorious code word could be calling an “investigation” a Matter.
Here’s a sample of some liberal euphemisms (real word or phrase, followed by coded rewording):
Higher taxes, Fair Share
Abortion, Woman’s right to choose
Gun control, Gun safety legislation
Political idiot, Weiner
Ambiguous reaction, Whatever
The Clinton Campaign used “Stronger Together” to go against President Trump’s “Make America Great Again.” But this was after 84 other slogans such as “Don’t Turn Back,” “Keep Moving,” Rise-Up,” “Move Up,” and “Go further” were considered.
