Once again FBI Director James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton over her use of a private email server to transmit classified information, and the agents working for him have a startling reason why.
We’ve been hearing about dissent in the bureau after the first time Comey let Hillary off the hook, and rightfully so. These agents work tirelessly to protect our nation and its secrets, so the last thing they want is to see someone like Hillary getting away with jeopardizing national security.
Apparently, they’re now so upset they’re starting to talk, which is good for us but bad for Comey and the FBI. According to agents close to the investigation, Comey actively “stood in the way” of their probe into Hillary’s illicit email server.
While this really isn’t a surprise considering how he’s been acting, now we actually have proof of it. After all, this is coming directly from FBI agents.
More from the Daily Caller:
FBI agents say the bureau is alarmed over Director James Comey deciding not to suggest that the Justice Department prosecute Hillary Clinton over her mishandling of classified information.
According to an interview transcript given to The Daily Caller, provided by an intermediary who spoke to two federal agents with the bureau last Friday, agents are frustrated by Comey’s leadership.
“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have convened but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”
The agent was also surprised that the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation.
“We didn’t search their house. We always search the house. The search should not just have been for private electronics, which contained classified material, but even for printouts of such material,” he said.
“There should have been a complete search of their residence,” the agent pointed out. “That the FBI did not seize devices is unbelievable. The FBI even seizes devices that have been set on fire.”
Another special agent for the bureau that worked counter-terrorism and criminal cases said he is offended by Comey’s saying: “we” and “I’ve been an investigator.”
Comey and the Obama administration have seriously tarnished the FBI’s reputation of being non-partisan and apolitical. The good news is there’s an easy way for them to restore the trust America once had in our elite federal enforcement agency – start handing out indictments for the Clinton Foundation.
If that happens, we just might be able to give them a pass over the emails, but that’s a big maybe.
