Those who (like me) have believed for a long time that “the fix was in” regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton by the FBI have even more reason today for drawing that conclusion.
Though frustrated by the FBI’s extreme foot-dragging (some would label it something else, like “contempt”) in response to their requests for information, three House committees and the Senate Judiciary Committee have managed to piece together a lot of facts gathered from testimony and documents. In doing so, they’ve revealed a much more detailed tapestry than we could see in July of 2016, when then-FBI Director James Comey went far beyond the appropriate duties of his job and announced he wouldn’t recommend prosecution in the Hillary email case.
Congressional investigators now know that Comey’s statement went through multiple drafts, and they even have a good idea of who contributed which changes as the document evolved. One draft specifically stated that there was “evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information.” And one reason why they could determine the material had been handled with gross negligence –- a criminal offense that people not associated with the Clintons are routinely prosecuted for –- was the “sheer volume” of information that was “properly classified as Secret.”
There’s much more, including evidence that a computer tech (name redacted) who testified before the FBI lied to them in saying he didn’t recall deleting Clinton emails, when it turns out he did in fact delete them. Oh, and by the way, he deleted them after a subpoena had been issued for them. But unlike Michael Flynn, who was charged with lying to the FBI –- after unknowingly being spied on, unmasked and questioned without a lawyer, but I digress –- this tech person was given immunity so that he could correct his statement. Wasn’t that nice of the FBI? The list of witnesses given immunity is apparently quite long, so long that it appears to have unofficially extended all the way to Hillary.
Tired of hearing about Hillary’s (darn) emails? Let me remind you that this email mess is just one example of Hillary’s criminality, and it intersects with others. I’m no conspiracy nut, but I can say with assurance that in the coming months, much more will become known about the pay-for-play activities of the Clinton Foundation and the network of Clinton supporters within the Justice Department and even inside the White House; these were the ones doing the actual collusion with Russia. What we already know is stunning. It’s hard to imagine how the swamp is gonna get drained unless everything comes out.
Democrats are trying to protect that swamp by saying, “Come on, why go after Hillary now? She’s out of power.” To that I say, “Hey, Democrats...do you think it was right that Ford pardoned Nixon? After all, he was out of power!”
