Why did Obama appoint James Comey as FBI chief?

20 years ago, James Comey was a deputy special counsel on the Senate Whitewater Committee. Yes, freaking WHITEWATER. Really? Well I'm sure he was just doing his job, ho hum. OH! Almost forgot, here's what he had to say in his report about Hillary:

In 1996, after months of work, Comey came to some damning conclusions: Hillary Clinton was personally involved in mishandling documents and had ordered others to block investigators as they pursued their case. Worse, her behavior fit into a pattern of concealment: she and her husband had tried to hide their roles in two other matters under investigation by law enforcement.

Taken together, the interference by White House officials, which included destruction of documents, amounted to “far more than just aggressive lawyering or political naiveté,” Comey and his fellow investigators concluded. It constituted “a highly improper pattern of deliberate misconduct.”


Huh. Wonder if Comey ended up on the Clintons' enemies list after that? And Obama (or his advisers at least) certainly would have remembered this.

Guccifer exposed in March 2013.
Comey appointed in June 2013.

No biggie I'm sure, just seems curious.
