Congressional Republicans on key committees say they have found new contradictions and irregularities inside of the FBI’s investigation of Hillary’s emails server, John Solomon reported.
Via John Solomon of The Hill:
Republicans on key congressional committees say they have uncovered new irregularities and contradictions inside the FBI’s probe of Hillary Clinton’s email server.
For the first time, investigators say they have secured written evidence that the FBI believed there was evidence that some laws were broken when the former secretary of State and her top aides transmitted classified information through her insecure private email server, lawmakers and investigators told The Hill.
That evidence includes passages in FBI documents stating the “sheer volume” of classified information that flowed through Clinton’s insecure emails was proof of criminality as well as an admission of false statements by one key witness in the case, the investigators said.
The name of the witness is redacted from the FBI documents but lawmakers said he was an employee of a computer firm that helped maintain her personal server after she left office as America’s top diplomat and who belatedly admitted he had permanently erased an archive of her messages in 2015 after they had been subpoenaed by Congress.
Former FBI Director James Comey drafted Hillary Clinton’s exoneration letter before interviewing 17 witnesses, including Hillary Clinton.
It was also recently revealed the FBI gave Hillary Clinton’s email investigation ‘special status’ and the code word used by agents was ‘HQ special’, the GP reports.
Andrew McCabe didn’t recuse himself from Hillary’s email investigation despite many conflicts of interest until one week before the presidential election.
New documents released by Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee in mid-December reveal Comey made more edits to Hillary’s draft statement.
One very shocking revelation is that “hostile actors” likely gained access to Hillary Clinton’s private email which of course contained classified information.
Fox News reported on new Comey edits:
The edits also showed that references to specific potential violations of statutes on “gross negligence” of classified information and “misdemeanor handling” were removed.
The original also said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was later changed to say that scenario was merely “possible.”
The final statement also removed a reference to the “sheer volume” of classified information discussed on email.
“While the precise dates of the edits and identities of the editors are not apparent from the documents, the edits appear to change the tone and substance of Director Comey’s statement in at least three respects,” Johnson wrote Thursday.
President Trump called for Hillary Clinton’s aide Huma Abedin to be jailed after new State Department docs were released showing she breached security protocol when handling classified information.
As previously reported, Huma Abedin forwarded sensitive State Department emails to her insecure Yahoo email accounts, which were later hacked by foreign actors. Russian agents were reportedly among the foreign nationals that hacked Abedin’s emails.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions needs to do his job and prosecute Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin and the top FBI brass who covered for them.
