FBI, DOJ in Disarray Over Comey and Lynch Giving Hillary a Pass

FBI, DOJ in Disarray Over Comey and Lynch Giving Hillary a Pass

“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted.”

The decision by the FBI and the Department of Justice not to pursue charges against Hillary Clinton has thrown both federal agencies into a tailspin.

James Comey and Loretta Lynch can spin all they want, but average people know they gave Hillary Clinton special treatment, including those average people who work beneath the directors.

FOX News reports:

FBI, DOJ roiled by Comey, Lynch decision to let Clinton slide by on emails, says insider

The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.

The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.

“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by FoxNews.com.

A high-ranking FBI official told Fox News that while it might not have been a unanimous decision, “It was unanimous that we all wanted her [Clinton’s] security clearance yanked.”

“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted,” the senior FBI official told Fox News. “We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”

Judge Jeanine of FOX News recently discussed this with Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch:

The New York Post also reported on this recently:

FBI agents are ready to revolt over the cozy Clinton probe

Veteran FBI agents say FBI Director James Comey has permanently damaged the bureau’s reputation for uncompromising investigations with his “cowardly” whitewash of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information using an unauthorized private email server.

Feeling the heat from congressional critics, Comey last week argued that the case was investigated by career FBI agents, “So if I blew it, they blew it, too.”

But agents say Comey tied investigators’ hands by agreeing to unheard-of ground rules and other demands by the lawyers for Clinton and her aides that limited their investigation.

“In my 25 years with the bureau, I never had any ground rules in my interviews,” said retired agent Dennis V. Hughes, the first chief of the FBI’s computer investigations unit.

Trump may not be perfect, but he’s not part of this corrupt house of cards. Hillary shouldn’t be above the law and even people who work in federal law enforcement know it.

Give me a call when one of them resigns.

    Yup. Talk is cheap, especially when one’s meal ticket and pension is on the line.

    You were telling the lie just the other day, unequivocally, that everyone on the FBI and DOJ teams was all about exonerating Hellary.

    If you need me to, I’ll go back and get your posts.

      Go back and get your posts. I have been a member of enough teams in business, sports, fraternities and civic organizations to know that there is always disagreement – often heated.

      This article makes claims that goes way beyond that.

      I wish you would cut out the accusation of lying. You don’t know me. I am sure that somewhere in the many postings I have made, there is an inconsistency. But unless you find a pattern of lies, stop it! I don’t care about you calling me a liar. It just isn’t true.

Unfortunately the corruption is so pervasive that we can’t believe even this.

A deliberate sop, an attempt to have their whitewash and eat it too, would be indistinguishable from these statements. No indictment for Hillary—the Democrats and Hillary get what they want. A pretense that the entire apparatus isn’t thoroughly perverted—the people who think that American law enforcement is supposed to actually enforce law are slightly mollified. “Win-Win” … sort-of.

It costs nothing to put out such a story. It might embarrass Comey and Lynch, but no matter; they’ve done what the Powers wanted done; now, they could both disappear and they wouldn’t be missed. They can be discarded at any convenient moment; there are plenty more where they came from.

A resignation en masse from the FBI or the DOJ would mean something; hell, maybe some of these people are serious! But mere words? A cheap propaganda campaign.

    I think the last time the DoJ had any integrity was on October 20, 1973 when Attorney General Elliot Richardson and Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus resigned rather than follow Nixon’s order to fire Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox.

    Comey blamed the professional agents in one of his press conferences. He said they did all the work so it was as much their fault as his.

Referring to James Comey as FBI is similar to claiming Ash Carter a Marine. Both men are political appointees and share none of the Esprit de Corps of their respective organizations.

Obama had a problem naming Hillary as his legitimate successor so he ordered Comey, his appointed hack, to destroy the FBI investigation of Hillary’s appalling disregard of our national security interests. Hillary’s intent had nothing to do with national security, that damage was strictly collateral. Rather, her intent was to obfuscate her corruption of the political process to enhance her personal power and wealth.

The only hope is that President Trump’s DOJ will lock her up.

    Well, a Trump DOJ would need actual charges and evidence and such things. And the FBI files of its investigation will undoubtedly turn up “missing”. It would take time to reconstruct enough of that material to indict. Plenty of time for Hillary to buy a nice vacation mansion in Switzerland.

      Not if he’s the nazi his detractors accuse him of being.

        MattMusson in reply to maxmillion. | October 13, 2016 at 3:30 pm

        Let’s face it. The Press will be all over Trump for any move he makes. They won’t be covering for him like for Clinton, Obama, JFK, Teddy Kennedy, etc, etc.

      Hillary’s health care would be compromised in a foreign country. Even here she will need to be continually monitored, assisted, aided, helped, and increasingly waited upon hand and foot and even then will require long term care in the not too distant future. But then wasn’t the purpose of the Clinton Foundation, to provide charity for Bill and Hillary in their old age?

Is it too much to ask for her to keel over into a coma during the next debate?

holdingmynose | October 13, 2016 at 2:15 pm

The only way this internal dissent matters is if the “disgruntled employees” start leaking info on Comey and Lynch and Illary to a media organization which has the fortitude to publish it.

    snopercod in reply to holdingmynose. | October 13, 2016 at 2:31 pm

    “…a media organization which has the fortitude to publish it.” LOL! Good one!!!

    “The Media” are no longer the gatekeepers. The mainstream media have been exposed as publishing just as much rubbish as typical partisan blogs.

    People have become accustomed to browsing around to get more than one side.

    They also have wised up to the fact that “The Media” lie by omission. If you see in on the net and it isn’t covered by the mainstream press, you have to wonder why.

Organizations reflect their leadership. The current regime is “irredeemably” corrupt. Thus the only rational assumption is that all Federal agents, regardless of which militarized branch, are also corrupt.

The DOJ and FBI have become political lapdogs of the left. The public in general has lost all respect for the DOJ and FBI, except for those who they preferentially serve. If Trump wins there will be a great house-cleaning, and it is long overdue.
