Republican Senators Unveil Another FBI Blunder Involving The Clintons
Thanks to the hard work of Senator Chuck Grassley and Ron Johnson it has been discovered that the email case against Hillary Clinton may not be over just yet.
A staff memo report updating the two senators probe into the FBI revealed that James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok failed to obtain “highly classified” evidence necessary to the investigation. John Solomon reports:
The failure to look at the evidence back in 2016 occurred even though the agents (other agents invovled in the investigation) believed access to the sensitive evidence was “necessary” to complete the investigation into Clinton’s improper transmission of classified emails — some top-secret — on her unsecure private email server, the memos show.
A passage that often gets overlooked by reporters and pundits alike, IG Horowitz concluded in his final report about the Clinton email caper that the anti-Trump biases that FBI agent Strzok and bureau lawyer Lisa Page expressed in text messages may have affected their decisionmaking to focus more urgently on the now disproven Trump-Russia collusion allegations rather than to finish work on the former secretary of State’s email problems, an investigation code-named Midyear.
In assessing the decision to prioritize the Russia investigation over following up on the Midyear-related investigative lead … we were particularly concerned about text messages sent by Strzok and Page that potentially indicated or created the appearance that investigative decisions they made were impacted by bias or improper considerations,” the Justice Department’s watchdog wrote.
Both Republicans Senators have hit roadblocks during the past year to get answers.
What this means is the FBI deliberately decided not to seek access of potentially “relevant” material, despite other Agents participating in the investigation claiming the review of this classified material was “necessary” to complete the investigation. The FBI’s chief lawyer, in the beginning, thought Hillary should be indicted, and a draft was made supporting it but as we know the decision was reversed.
Thanks to Solomon’s reporting we now learned that the FBI chose to ignore “highly classified” evidence and has been keeping Congress in the dark for a year.
It’s time to lock Hillary up once and for all! Great work Senator Grassley and Johnson for continuing to pursue this case.
