Earlier today the Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, chaired by Senator Ron Johnson, released an interim report of the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
What it reveals is what many of us have thought to be the truth all along – there was massive bias on behalf of the FBI to protect Hillary from criminal prosecution. (Video Below)
According to the report:
“There were substantial edits to Director Comey’s public statement that served to downplay the severity of Secretary Clinton’s actions, and that the first draft of the memo was distributed for editing two months before key witnesses were interviewed.”
“Director Comey stated that he had not consulted with the Justice Department or White House, when text messages suggest otherwise.106 We have text messages in which two key investigators discuss an “insurance policy” against the “risk” of a Trump presidency, and “OUR task.”107
In other words, more evidence that Comey LIED under oath. He drafted a letter exonerating Hillary two months before they really “began” the investigation.
If this report doesn’t put the final nail in Comey’s coffin, I’m not sure what will. He has to be terrified, and he should be.
Not only that, but the report also details how certain agents at the top of the FBI sought to undermine Trump and have him removed from office through the Mueller investigation.
Take a look at this expert from the report:
Unbelievable. These anti-Trump agents thought it was they had ”unfinished business” after Trump was elected and “needed to fix it and finish it.”
THEY’RE ADMITTING WHAT THEY’RE TRYING TO DO IN PLAIN SIGHT!
Here’s the conclusion of the report that summarizes all the main findings in the 25 page report:
We should all recognize the harm done to our rule of law when crimes go unpunished because government officials look the other way for the wealthy, famous, or powerful. Americans rightly expect a single and impartial system of justice for all, not one for the well-connected and a separate one for everyone else.
The information available to the Committee at this time raises serious questions about how the FBI applied the rule of law in its investigation of classified information on Secretary Clinton’s private email server. We know that:
• The FBI did not use a grand jury to compel testimony and obtain the vast majority of evidence, choosing instead to offer immunity deals and allow fact witnesses to join key interviews.
• There were substantial edits to Director Comey’s public statement that served to downplay the severity of Secretary Clinton’s actions, and that the first draft of the memo was distributed for editing two months before key witnesses were interviewed.
• Director Comey stated that he had not consulted with the Justice Department or White House, when text messages suggest otherwise.106 We have text messages in which two key investigators discuss an “insurance policy” against the “risk” of a Trump presidency, and “OUR task.”107
• Messages discuss “unfinished business,” “an investigation leading to impeachment,” and “my gut sense and concern there’s no big there there.”108
• Senior FBI officials—likely including Deputy Director McCabe— knew about newly discovered emails on a laptop belonging to AnthonyWeiner for almost a month before Director Comey notified Congress.
• Over the period of at least four months, the FBI did not recover five months’ worth of text messages requested by DOJ OIG and two Senate committees; however, when pressed, DOJ OIG was able to recover missing texts in less than one week.
Taken together, this information warrants further inquiry. While some may discount the investigation for political reasons, we all have a great interest in ensuring the public has confidence in the integrity and independence of the FBI, the preeminent law enforcement agency in the world. Unlike prosecutors or inspectors general, the primary goal of congressional oversight is full transparency in order to promote public awareness and confidence in federal agencies. For these reasons, our important work will continue.
