FBI Director James Comey rejected the idea that Gen. David Petraeus was prosecuted for “far less” of a crime than what Hillary Clinton did with her private email server. “His conduct, to me, illustrates the categories of behavior that mark the prosecutions that are actually brought—clearly intentional conduct, knew what he was doing was a violation of the law,” Comey said Thursday during a U.S. House hearing. “Huge amounts of information that, even if you couldn’t prove he knew it, it raises the inference that he did it. An effort to obstruct justice.” He ultimately concluded that those factors made it “worthy” of a misdemeanor prosecution. Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump often brings up Petraeus as an example of why Clinton should be prosecuted for crimes that are “much worse,” in his view.
