Imagine where Hillary Clinton would be today if only one-tenth of the amount of scrutiny was applied to her actual crooked activities while acting as Barack Obama’s Secretary of State, compared to the effort put forth by Robert Mueller’s endless witch hunt of President Trump. Most Americans would agree that Hillary would be sitting in a jail cell somewhere if equal treatment were applied, and not sitting around tweeting about President Trump, the man she couldn’t defeat in the 2016 election, even with her phony Steele dossier.
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.
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.
Watch, as Comey attempts to convince members of the Senate Judiciary Committee that the FBI was able to successfully comb through 694.000 of the emails found on the disgraced pedophile and husband of Hillary aide Huma Abedin’s, laptop. Comey desperately attempts to defend his position to clear Hillary of any wrongdoing only days before the 2016 presidential election.
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.
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.
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.
