Man James Comey indicted for 23-word email has PERFECT response to Hillary verdict
Written by Matt Palumbo on July 6, 2016
We reported earlier today on five people who had committed similar crimes to Hillary Clinton, but were not let off the hook for the FBI, as she was. Needless to say, one can’t imagine any of them would’ve been pleased by the Hillary Clinton decision — in which it appears she received preferential treatment — regardless of what they think of her candidacy.
One of those outraged is investment banker Frank Quattrone. Back in 2003, he was charged with obstruction of justice over a single 23-word email to his employees — by none other than James Comey, who was then U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Yep, this is the same James Comey who, as the head of the FBI now, declared yesterday that Hillary did wrong, but that it didn’t matter because of her intent.
According to the Daily Caller: Quattrone was the subject of a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission probe into his dealings at Credit Suisse First Boston, where he allegedly “doled out hot stock offerings” to his friends. Quattrone hosted initial public offerings for companies like Amazon and Cisco in the late 90s, and his activity led to investigation at the height of the tech bubble.
Comey charged Quattrone for a one sentence email in which he “advised colleagues in late 2000 to destroy documents while regulators were investigating Wall Street investment banks” for the way they shared their “lucrative initial public offerings.”
The email that got Quattrone in trouble was “having been a key witness in a securities litigation case in south Texas, I strongly advise you to follow these procedures.”
The procedures Quattrone referred to involved a suggestion from a coworker in an email chain that employees save subpoenaed documents.

Comey said that this email “resulted in the destruction of numerous documents.”
You mean like the 30,000 Hillary Clinton deleted?
Needless to say, he wasn’t thrilled with Comey’s decision in the case of Hillary. He took to Twitter following the verdict, blasting Comey:
