Lost amid the Fourth of July celebrations in 2016 was the July 5 statement of former FBI Director James Comey regarding the ‘investigation’ it undertook of Hillary’s criminal use of a private server that handled classified information.
Appearing before Congress on that suspiciously chosen date, Comey said, in part, the following:
“Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.
“None of these e-mails should have been on any kind of unclassified system, but their presence is especially concerning because all of these e-mails were housed on unclassified personal servers not even supported by full-time security staff, like those found at Departments and Agencies of the U.S. Government—or even with a commercial service like Gmail.”
Before the statement, the FBI had come to the conclusion that it was ‘reasonably likely’ that foreign hackers had accessed Hillary’s server. That assessment, however, did not appear in Comey’s remarks, reports the Daily Caller. Instead, the word ‘possible’ was used:
“Given that combination of factors, we assess it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail account,” Comey would state.
These revelations come after it has been learned that FBI agent Peter Strzok changed the phrase ‘grossly negligent’ to ‘extremely careless’ in Comey’s statement, a revision of significant legal bearing.
These edits, now in the public arena, prompted Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman Ron Johnson to send a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray, in which Johnson states that the edifications “raise profound questions about the FBI’s role and possible interference in the 2016 presidential election and the role of the same agents in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of President Trump.”
Prior to his appearance, Comey sent a draft of his remarks to Deputy Director Andrew “Andy” McCabe, a well-known Clinton fanboy, on May 2, 2016. Four days later they were then fielded to supposedly several FBI agents, with Strzok definitely being at least one of them.
The statement was tailored carefully to provide the appearance of a concrete reason in justifying the Bureau’s exoneration of Hillary.
This type of tortuous perversion of legal terms is the hallmark of the Deep State and represents a clear and present danger to our constitutional republic. It’s time to drain the swamp at the FBI!
