When then-FBI Director James Comey announced he was closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation for a second time just days before the 2016 election, he certified to Congress that his agency had “reviewed all of the communications” discovered on a personal laptop used by Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.
James Comey, above.


At the time, many wondered how investigators managed over the course of one week to read the “hundreds of thousands” of emails residing on the machine, which had been a focus of a sex-crimes investigation of Weiner, a former Congressman.

Comey later told Congress that “thanks to the wizardry of our technology,” the FBI was able to eliminate the vast majority of messages as “duplicates” of emails they’d previously seen. Tireless agents, he claimed, then worked “night after night after night” to scrutinize the remaining material.

But virtually none of his account was true, a growing body of evidence reveals.

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.

This is absolutely staggering.

I would like to say I am surprised, but this is just another in a long line of lies by comey and the fbi and coverups for Hillary.

Comey lied about reviewing the emails on weiners laptop, they did not let people know that many of the emails did in fact include highly sensitive classified info, the fbi failed to do as policy dictates and share that info with other agencies to make sure national security was not compromised.

I will post more of my thoughts in a bit, but I encourage everyone to read the full article.

This story perfectly illustartes the corruption of the fbi, and their desire to help hillary and take down trump.

Here is a relevant part.

You know how many clinton supporters blame comey for reopening the case and costing here the election?


"Many Clinton supporters believe Comey’s 11th hour reopening of a case that had shadowed her campaign was a form of sabotage that cost her the election. But the evidence shows Comey and his inner circle acted only after worried agents and prosecutors in New York forced their hand. At the prodding of Attorney General Lynch, they then worked to reduce and rush through, rather than carefully examine, potentially damaging new evidence.

Comey later admitted in his memoir “A Higher Loyalty,” that political calculations shaped his decisions during this period. But, he wrote, they were calibrated to help Clinton: “Assuming, as nearly everyone did, that Hillary Clinton would be elected president of the United States in less than two weeks, what would happen to the FBI, the Justice Department or her own presidency if it later was revealed, after the fact, that she still was the subject of an FBI investigation?”


www.realclearinvestigations.com...

Thats right, he was forced to because a few FBI agents were so disgusted of the leaderships burying of this evidnce that they were going to come forward.

SO what did comey do, announced the investigation, and then lied and said they had looked at all of the evidnce and there was nothing there.

Is there any doubt left that the FBI top leadership was totally in the bag for Hillary?

And look at how the fbi's attempts to bury this story compare to how hard they are going after trump.

As I have said before, a corrupt intal agency is far more damaging to the country than anything hillary or trump are accused of doing.

Now compare the coverage thos story will get to trump possibly violating a campaign finance law.

Truly disgusting.

This report is a bombshell

I am reading it for the third time.

The blatant corruption of strzok, mccabe and comey to try to bury this story is unbelievable.

And not just one time; but at every step of the process.

Slowplaying reporting the emails, only allowing a select few emails to be searched which excluded the most important ones from when hillary was setting up the server, not reporting this to other agencies to see if national security was damaged, telling investigators they cant recall conversations about these emails, leaving off improtaant details on warrants, lying to congress and the american people that all of the emails were checked and showed nothing of importance.

Every step of the way, they acted in a corrupt manner to benefit hillary.

I dont care if you hate trump and are a hillary supporter, every single american should be outraged by this report and the corrupt bias behavior of the fbi, and demand accountability.

every time the hammer gets closer on trump, a mysterious and esoteric bombshell drops to counter.. every single time...
let's see if fox news picks up on this bombshell; this should be damming evidence against the DOJ, sure trump's camp will pounce?

Comey lied for sure?... yet the president is still being seasoned readying to be skewered.

It very well could be a lie. I'd like to see some good sources on this.

One source is unnamed and the other is Michael Biasello, which is a name we should all know, considering that his name has been attached to many claims about the FBI investigations, but have not been proven or come to fruition.

I've read other sources on this aspect and they all link back to the RCI website.

So until other, more reputable sources are provided, this may be another fake news story, similar to that of the FBI revolting...which was also a claim of Michael Biasello.

Argh!!!!

Look at this part about strzok, who was the agent in charge of investigating the emails on weiner laptop!


Strzok and headquarters sat on the mountain of evidence for another 26 days. The career New York agent said all he was hearing from Washington was “crickets,” so he pushed the issue to his immediate superiors, fearing he would be “scapegoated” for failing to search the pile of digital evidence. They, in turn, went over Strzok’s head, passing their concerns on to career officials at the National Security Division of the Justice Department, who in turn set off alarm bells at the seventh floor executive suites of the Hoover Building.

The New York agent has not been publicly identified, even in the recent IG report, which only describes him as male. But federal court filings in the Weiner case reviewed by RCI list two FBI agents present in court proceedings, only one of whom is male - John Robertson. RCI has confirmed that Robertson at the time was an FBI special agent assigned to the C-20 squad investigating “crimes against children” at the bureau’s New York field office at 26 Federal Plaza, which did not return messages.

The agent told the inspector general that he wasn’t political and didn’t understand all the sensitive issues headquarters may have been weighing, but he feared Washington’s inaction might be seen as a cover-up that could wreak havoc on the bureau.

“I don’t care who wins this election,” he said, "but this is going to make us look really, really horrible.”
Lisa Page: "Whatever."


Once George Toscas, the highest-ranking Justice Department official directly involved in the Clinton email investigation, found out about the delay, he prodded headquarters to initiate a search and to inform Congress about the discovery.

By Oct. 21, Strzok had gotten the word. “Toscas now aware NY has hrc-huma emails,” he texted McCabe’s counsel, Lisa Page, who responded, “whatever."

Four days later, Page told Strzok - with whom she was having an affair - about the murmurs she was hearing from brass about having to tell Congress about the new emails. “F them,” Strzok responded, apparently referring to oversight committee leaders on the Hill.


So the agent who examined the emails was so concerned that it looked like the fbi was covering this up that he ended up going over strzoks head.

When superiors over strzok charged with oversight started to push that this needed to be dealt with, stzrok says "F them"

What unbelievable arrogance, corruption, and hubris!

Yes yes, we know, fake news.

Only the report cites actual agents names attached to it, and includes emails and documents that can be readily seen.

Now I agree with you, we should get the other side of the story as well.

But some people never wanted an investigation into the investigators in the first place, and this point it is looking really bad for them.

This works EXACTLY both ways.

Every time the hammer gets closer on the democrats, some "unnamed CNN official familiar with the matter", former Trump lawyer or porn star appears with some tape or anything useless to try to undermine his presidency.

The difference is that HRC wasn't even investigated because of the political bias of the FBI/DOJ.

Trump was and is being investigated for 2 years now and guess what? Nothing on him so far other than paying hookers with legal money.

But the counter could also be said.

Every time we find out something like bruce ohr was backchanneling steele after he was fired, and they were discussing firewalls, something new comes out that trump may have done something.

In fact, people have long been saying (and probably with good reason) that muellers team is timing there decsisions to hurt trumo in the news cycle.

So I guess both sides could argue that point.

“There's no rational explanation why, after they found over 300,000 Clinton emails on the Wiener laptop in late September, the FBI did nothing for a month,” former deputy Independent Counsel Solomon “Sol” L. Wisenberg said in a recent interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham. “It’s pretty clear there’s a real possibility they did nothing because they thought it would hurt Mrs. Clinton during the election.”

Horowitz concurred. The IG cited suspicions that the inaction "was a politically motivated attempt to bury information that could negatively impact the chances of Hillary Clinton in the election.”


www.realclearinvestigations.com...

So if the national enquirer holding back stories to help trump in the election is terrible and needs looked in ot, what is it when the FBI is stonewalling looking into evidence of a crime to help hillary in an election?

Now this was in the IG report.

Yet where is the media going nut like they are with the stormy daniels payment?

To them, a magazine or trump paying to keep dirt released about trump before an election is a story worth reporting hundreds of times more than top fbi official seeking to bury not only a story, but possible criminal activity, to help hillary in the election.

I particularly like this part:


Although the FBI’s New York office first pointed headquarters to the large new volume of evidence on Sept. 28, 2016, supervising agent Peter Strzok, who was fired on Aug. 10 for sending anti-Trump texts and other misconduct, did not try to obtain a warrant to search the huge cache of emails until Oct. 30, 2016. Violating department policy, he edited the warrant affidavit on his home email account, bypassing the FBI system for recording such government business. He also began drafting a second exoneration statement before conducting the search.

The search warrant was so limited in scope that it excluded more than half the emails New York agents considered relevant to the case.


Just wow. Comey certainly Strzok'd Weiner, that's for sure.

And here we have Obamas doj, Lynch, who by the way, never recused herself and was ultimately the one who decided not to charge hillary, making calls to the fbi and trying to keep congress from finding out about these emails.


During the October time frame, McCabe called Sweeney in New York and chewed him out about leaks coming out of his office. On Oct. 26, then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch was so worried about the leaks, she called McCabe and Sweeney and angrily warned them to fix them. Sweeney confirmed in an interview with the inspector general that they got “ripped by the AG on leaks.” McCabe said he never heard the attorney general "use more forceful language.”

Lynch -- who had admonished Comey to call the Clinton case a “matter” and not an investigation, aligning FBI rhetoric with the Clinton campaign, and who inappropriately agreed to meet with Bill Clinton aboard her government plane five days before the FBI interviewed Hillary Clinton — sought to keep the Weiner laptop search quiet and was opposed to going to Congress with the discovery so close to the election.

It would seem that both those people, especially Strzok, think they're the Second Coming of J. Edgar Hoover.

More, and more, it seems evident that the FBI needs to be torn down, or at the least, de-politicized. Though, to be honest, I've no idea how you'd go about that particular Task of Hercules...

Top to bottom, it seems evident that changes are required. This problem is institutional, and hasn't changed, even though Hoover is long gone (thankfully) from this Earth. His spirit, obviously, still permeates the BI.

Now keep in mind, weiners laptop contained hundreds of thousands of emails that were relevant, so much so that FBi agents were commenting this could literally have every single email between hillary and abedin from 2007 onward.

Yet as the article says, even IG horowitz said the warrant for search the emails was tailored too narrow.

Read the article for the full details, but in effect they did everything they could to avoid looking at what could be damning emails for hillary, and in the end wound up only looking at a little over 6000 of the hundreds of thousands of emails.

This is a huge problem in its own right.

But what this also means is that there are hundreds of thousands of emails that have not been investigated by the fbi, including ones from the crucial time hillary was setting up her server, to the ones occuring during the time she was deleting emails requested by the fbi.

So surely the FBI needs to look at those emails now right?

Only one problem.


A final mystery remains: Where is the Weiner laptop today?

The whistleblower agent in New York said that he was “instructed” by superiors to delete the image of the laptop hard drive he had copied onto his work station, and to “wipe” all of the Clinton-related emails clean from his computer.

But he said he believes the FBI “retained" possession of the actual machine, and that the evidence on the device was preserved.

The last reported whereabouts of the laptop was the Quantico lab. However, the unusually restrictive search warrant Strzok and his team drafted appeared to remand the laptop back into the custody of Abedin and Weiner upon the closing of the case.

“If the government determines that the subject laptop is no longer necessary to retrieve and preserve the data on the device,” the document states on its final page, “the government will return the subject laptop."

Wherever its location, somewhere out there is a treasure trove of evidence involving potentially serious federal crimes -- including espionage, foreign influence-peddling and obstruction of justice -- that has never been properly or fully examined by law enforcement authorities.


Surprise surprise! The fbi instructed an agent to delete the copy of the hard drive they had with all of the emails on it. And it turns out the warrant gave weiner back his laptop when they were done with it!

So now, no one knows where the laptop is!

What great luck for hillary and the fnbi again huh! Seems like they conveniently lose or destroy evidence every time when it comes to hillary!

If they didn't read them all, how the Hell do they know what's in 'em isn't important.

I know you can do "key word" searches and things of that nature, but that only helps organize the search, it doesn't mean the things, the emails, shouldn't be read.

That, alone, would seem to indicate there's a problem. Incompetence.

This so called investigation was slipshod, and then a coat of whitewash was added for good measure.

I sincerely hope Trump is secretly working with someone to take her down.

I wouldn't vote for him in 2020 if Hillary is still on the loose by then, with all this damming evidence against her, the DOJ should be all over it.

If it's really a 78D chess then he's tying all the lose parts together so there is no possibility for her to escape the military court she's gonna face.

But I believe the excuse of incompetence flies out the window when you see all of their texts and the bias they had.

Not only was strzok texxting about wanting hillary to win and hating trump, but after he found out people that had oversight over him was finally going to make him look at these emails, he texted "F them"

And the article has many more examples of agents saying they wanted hillary to win, they didnt want to look at these emails cause it could hurt hillary, they know no one would prosecute hillary even if they did find classified emails, conversations from lynch telling them to not let congress or the public see about these emails, and writining exoneration letters before these emails were even looked at.

Not to mention then lying to congress that all of the emails were looked at, intetnionally only looking at a small fraction of the emails and leaving out ones from dates they knew could be troubling for hillary, and then deleting the fbi copy of all of the emails and losing or giving back the orginal laptop.

No at this point incompetence does not seem to apply.

This is the corruption of the storngest law enforcement and investigative agency in the country to help one candidate win an election.

And this is the same agency that was wiretapping and spying on trumps team, and in charge of the investigation of trump russia collusion.

I have been saying for over a year; this is the biggest scandal in the history of this country.

Yet so many seem to car more about rather trump payment to keep a pron star quiet was technically illegal.

Yeah hillary, like trump or anyone else for thaat matter, should be held accountable if she committed crimes.

But that is not the big issue.

The big issue is that the fbi is corrupt, and seeking to influence elections and destroy politicians they do not like.

That has the potentila to destory our country more than anything trump or hillary or putin could do.
