Investigative journalist Paul Sperry writing for Real Clear Investigations found that James Comey lied to Congress… Not a little white one but a massive lie of epic proportions. Comey told congress that the FBI was able to go through the 7,000,000 emails on Anthony Weiner, aka Carlos danger’s computer, using state of the art technology and with agents working days and days on end until they had checked all 700,000 emails. He was only off by maybe 633,000 emails.
As it turned out, the FBI only actually examined 3077 of the emails. Assuming that every one of the 70,000 Hillary’s emails were on Weiner’s computer, that means over 600,000 were never examined. And the large number of agents working long days and night? It was actually 3 people in a 12 hour shift. That’s 36 man hours to go over 700,000 emails.
In fact, a technical glitch prevented FBI technicians from accurately comparing the new emails with the old emails. Only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.
“Most of the emails were never examined, even though they made up potentially 10 times the evidence” of what was reviewed in the original year-long case that Comey closed in July 2016, said a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation.
Yet even the “extremely narrow” search that was finally conducted, after more than a month of delay, uncovered more classified material sent and/or received by Clinton through her unauthorized basement server, the official said. Contradicting Comey’s testimony, this included highly sensitive information dealing with Israel and the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas. The former secretary of state, however, was never confronted with the sensitive new information and it was never analyzed for damage to national security.
Even though the unique classified material was improperly stored and transmitted on an unsecured device, the FBI did not refer the matter to U.S. intelligence agencies to determine if national security had been compromised, as required under a federally mandated “damage assessment” directive.
The newly discovered classified material “was never previously sent out to the relevant original classification authorities for security review,” the official, who spoke to RealClearInvestigations on the condition of anonymity, said.
Other key parts of the investigation remained open when the embattled director announced to Congress he was buttoning the case back up for good just ahead of Election Day.
One career FBI special agent involved in the case complained to New York colleagues that officials in Washington tried to “bury” the new trove of evidence, which he believed contained the full archive of Clinton’s emails — including long-sought missing messages from her first months at the State Department.
