The FBI failed to protect the country from Hillary Clinton's misdeeds
It appears that most of the people who were making these decisions at the FBI were virulently opposed to Donald Trump. That is the only possible explanation for ignoring her illegal conduct and that of those who aided and abetted her scheme.
It was a veritable spa of special treatment.
The FBI did everything but drive Hillary’s getaway car.
Former secretary of state Clinton is a free woman largely thanks to the tender loving care that the FBI provided her and her conspirators during its probe of her illegal, unsecure email server and related abuse of government secrets. GOP lawmakers concluded this after grilling FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe on December 21, behind closed doors, according to John Solomon’s molar-grinding exposé in Tuesday’s The Hill.
“For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that the FBI believed there was evidence that some laws were broken,” Solomon reported. This proof includes what Solomon calls revelations of “irregularities and contradictions” in the FBI’s inquiry.
Former FBI director James Comey’s first draft of his statement exonerating Hillary Clinton was dated May 2, 2016. But FBI agents on this case still were collecting subpoenaed documents and other relevant evidence. They cataloged additional exhibits on May 13, 19, and 26.
Comey wrote his “Free Hillary!” speech before 12 to 17 separate witnesses had been questioned, including Hillary herself. She was not interrogated until July 2 — fully two months after Comey penned remarks that kept her out of jail. He publicly delivered his words of absolution that July 5, in a widely covered press conference.
Hillary is only human. Even her critics might excuse a couple of goof-ups in which she accidentally exposed a classified record or two. However, Hillary operated a busted water main of classified data that flowed in from State and then gushed out of her lawless, do-it-yourself server. These 113 “born classified” records included eight Top Secret emails, ten Confidential ones, and 37 Secret messages.
Comey’s May 2, 2016, draft was written the day before FBI agents interviewed Hillary’s computer specialist, who contradicted his earlier testimony and confessed that he illegally destroyed pertinent records that Congress sought.
As former national-security adviser Mike Flynn can attest, lying to the FBI is a felony. But in this case, Solomon explains, “the FBI decided not to pursue criminal charges against the witness, and instead gave the technician an immunity deal so he could correct his story.”
This technician, who handled Hillary’s server after it left her Chappaqua, N.Y., mansion, also unlawfully erased emails on its hard drive — soon after Hillary’s attorney, David Kendall, and her State Department chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, spoke with staffers at Platte River Networks, the technical adviser’s employer.
“You have a conference call with Secretary Clinton’s attorneys on March 31, 2015, and on that very same day her emails are deleted by someone who was on that conference call using special BleachBit software,” Senate Judiciary Chairman Charles Grassley (R., Iowa) said on the Senate floor. “The emails were State Department records under subpoena by Congress,” as of that March 25.
“What did the FBI do to investigate this apparent obstruction?” Grassley wondered. “According to affidavits filed in federal court — absolutely nothing.”
