Here's what the report states about the Clinton investigation directly:




pp vii - viii
The Midyear team concluded that such proof was lacking. We found that this interpretation of Section 793(f)(1) was consistent with the Department’s historical approach in prior cases under different leadership, including in the 2008 decision not to prosecute former Attorney General Alberto Gonzales for mishandling classified documents. We analyzed the Department’s declination decision according to the same analytical standard that we applied to other decisions made during the investigation.

We did not substitute the OIG’s judgment for the judgments made by the Department, but rather sought to determine whether the decision was based on improper considerations, including political bias. We found no evidence that the conclusions by the prosecutors were affected by bias or other improper considerations; rather, we determined that they were based on the prosecutors’ assessment of the facts, the law, and past Department practice. We therefore concluded that these were legal and policy judgments involving core prosecutorial discretion that were for the Department to make.


Stop trying to relitigate something that never happened. Comey was right; no one is going to go after Clinton for the emails. Just like no one went after Gonzales, or Bush, or Cheney, etc. etc.

The entire report is about Clinton, and the FBI misconduct.

You try and reduce it down to two paragraphs?


How about these crackers?


While his wife was taking money from Clinton operative Gov. Terry McAuliffe, and while the FBI was investigating McAuliffe for taking foreign cash from a major Clinton Foundation donor, Andrew McCabe told WFO SAC: "Please do not open a case" on the Clinton Foundation.




Around the same time DOJ Official Kadzik briefed Yates and Lynch on the Clinton email investigation in 2015, he sought a job with Hillary Clinton campaign for his son in 2015

I will admit that some of your posts indeed seem ignorant of the facts and are tending toward political spin ...

... like the desperate attempt to make this about Hillary Clinton.

Physician, heal thyself.

I actually agree that Clinton clearly mishandled classified information, that she knew that at least some of the communications constituted mishandling of classified information and of course, that she lied about it.

We also know now that Powell did similar. I wonder what's going on with the new administration? Donald Trump is using an insecure personal phone. Kushner and others are known to use encrypted apps which could violate record keeping regs. It's strongly suspected that John Kelly's phone was hacked and there was a DHS report last year that found evidence of IMSI catchers in multiple DC locations, including near the White House.



Got any proof that Powell did similar?

Other than the emails that were retro actively classified after being in the government archives, available to the public for years? Those emails?


Yes, Powell did do something similar, he has admitted as much - but it wasn't as bad as it is now - Remember the internet and hacking has progressed tremendously since his time.

I think he should be locked up too. This is no joking matter. Having our secretary of States just treating classified info like it is no big deal is not something that should be excused.

People on here excusing this behavior because the person who did it is on their team are actually anti American. If the divide is so deep you want to root for criminals something is wrong with you.

They are not reopening the Clinton case.


Yeah go ahead and gloat she is somehow managing to get off again.

You are proud she can break the law repeatedly and get away with it. Says a lot about your character.

BS. Bias affects everything - you are living proof of it - your bias keeps you from thinking coherently.

What effect does your bias have on you?

In undertaking our analysis, our task was made significantly more difficult because of text and instant messages exchanged on FBI devices and systems by five FBI employees involved in the Midyear investigation. These messages reflected political opinions in support of former Secretary Clinton and against her then political opponent, Donald Trump. Some of these text messages and instant messages mixed political commentary with discussions about the Midyear investigation, and raised concerns that political bias may have impacted investigative decisions.

In particular, we were concerned about text messages
exchanged by FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter
Strzok and Lisa Page, Special Counsel to the Deputy
Director, that potentially indicated or created the
appearance that investigative decisions were impacted
by bias or improper considerations.


Page 4.

There was clearly bias in this investigation.

Paraphrasing Chuck Schumer this afternoon:

Anyone with a clear mind who sees this report, realizes that the FBI tried to Help Trump, while hurting Hillary.

Clear mind?

Didn't he say something nutty the other day about a cowboy riding an empty hat?

I quoted directly from the report earlier in the thread where they outlined where procedures weren't followed and bias was found

The report doesn't say that. It says the exact opposite of that.
