The normal procedure for the FBI is to send the case to a local office for investigation and it would be up to them to recommend or not criminal charges against the target. That didn’t happen in Hillary’s case. All decisions were made by a select few Hillary donors at the FBI. Except for McCabe. He was on the receiving end of donations, or at least his wife was.
McAuliffe’s PAC donated $475,000 to Jill McCabe’s campaign in 2015 and the Virginia Democratic Party, which is heavily influenced by the governor, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to her unsuccessful bid for office.
The FBI insists that Andrew McCabe “played no role” in his wife’s campaign. Months later he was promoted from associate deputy director to deputy director which gave him an “oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails.”
McCabe claims he recused himself from the email case and indeed he did after it was found out that his wife got nearly $700,000 from a close Hillary friend, not before.
The congressional investigators finally found written proof that FBI investigators that they believed there was sufficient evidence to charge Clinton and her co-conspirators with criminal charges. The deep state in the FBI and James Comey (There I go being redundant again) for some strange reason concluded that there had to be criminal intent in order to bring charges. That is false. Recklessly handling confidential materials, regardless of the intent is a violation of the Espionage Act.
In essence, in order to give Mrs. Clinton a pass, the FBI rewrote the statute, inserting an intent element that Congress did not require. The added intent element, moreover, makes no sense: The point of having a statute that criminalizes gross negligence is to underscore that government officials have a special obligation to safeguard national defense secrets; when they fail to carry out that obligation due to gross negligence, they are guilty of serious wrongdoing. The lack of intent to harm our country is irrelevant. People never intend the bad things that happen due to gross negligence.
Another irregularity was that Comey began drafting a statement exonerating Clinton 2 months and 17 witnesses before the actual statement was made. Also, both Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills committed perjury in their testimony. They both said they weren’t aware of Hillary’s private server until after she left the State Department. Subsequent emails proved that both were well aware of the server, yet no charges were filed against either of them despite the fact that they lied about a criminal act. The same FBI filed charges against Michael Flynn when he lied about a legal act.
Finally, the company handling Hillary’s emails deleted everything left on her computer six days after they were subpoenaed by congress and on the same day that a conference call between the IT firm, Clinton’s lawyer and campaign official was made. Call me suspicious but something doesn’t smell right.
Within the next couple of months the Inspector General of the DOJ will be releasing his report into the possible corruption by the FBI and DOJ.
