FBI agents wanted Hillary to go to jail. —>
Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe confirmed on 5/11 that James Comey’s decision not to recommend an indictment against Hillary Clinton sparked “very vocal concerns” from FBI agents.
“I think morale’s always been good, but there were folks within our agency that were frustrated with the outcome of the Hillary Clinton case and some of those folks were very vocal about those concerns,” McCabe said during a testimony in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee.
McCabe claimed FBI agents had “broad support” for Comey despite reports indicating otherwise.
On July 5, 2016, Comey announced that the Bureau would not recommend an indictment against former Secretary of State Clinton in a major press conference in which the former FBI director revealed Clinton was “extremely careless” regarding her handling of classified information. He made the announcement just days after Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton in a private jet idling on a runway.
“There is evidence they [Clinton and staff] were extremely careless in their handling of classified information,” Comey said. “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case. Prosecutors necessarily weigh a number of factors before deciding whether to bring charges.
The decision to let Clinton go unscathed angered many FBI agents according to several sources within the intelligence community.
Following the firing of Comey, Fox News reported that the investigation into Clinton’s illegal private server might be re-opened. A renewed email probe could yield different results this time should President Trump choose a patriot FBI director who will uphold the law and hold Hillary accountable for her crimes.
