The FBI’s former leadership was a revolutionary cell dedicated to destroying Donald Trump.
Pro-Clinton activists at the highest levels did their best to rig the investigations into her private email server.
And now the smoking gun has emerged to prove the Obama administration and FBI colluded in this Hillary Clinton scandal.
Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report is devastating for the FBI.
In it he writes that a top Department of Justice official pressured the FBI to squash the multi-city field office investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
The Daily Caller reports:
“The inspector general (IG) confirmed in its long-awaited report released Friday that in 2016 the FBI had ongoing field investigations of the Clinton Foundation in New York, Los Angeles, Little Rock, Arkansas and Washington, D.C. The multi-city investigation was launched when agents found “suspicious activity” between a foreign donor and Clinton Foundation activity in the Los Angeles area, as TheDCNF reported in August 2016.
The report, authored by Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz, an Obama appointee, chronicles the Justice Department’s effort to to shut down the FBI’s investigation on Aug. 12, 2016. The pressure allegedly came in the form of a phone call to McCabe from a Justice Department principal associate deputy attorney general (PADAG) who pressed McCabe on the continuing investigation. The IG did not identify which PADAG made the call…
… Loretta Lynch was attorney general at the time of the August call. She had been caught privately meeting with former President Bill Clinton in June 2016 on her government aircraft on the tarmac in Phoenix. That meeting occurred only days before Comey decided not to pursue criminal charges against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for the use of a personal email server that she used to conduct official Department of State business. Lynch later claimed the Phoenix meeting was “innocuous” and a “chance encounter.”
McCabe was worried about an Oct. 23, 2016 Wall Street Journal article, which appeared to have damaged his reputation for impartiality because the journalist, Devlin Barrett, reported McCabe’s wife received a campaign donation of nearly a half million dollars from Clinton friend and political ally Terry McAuliffe for her run for a Virginia state seat.
In an alleged attempt to show he wasn’t impartial to the Clintons, McCabe leaked information to Barrett a week later that claimed he personally fought the Justice Department’s attempt to shut down the FBI’s investigation, according to the Inspector General’s report. Barrett’s article appeared on Oct. 30 and was titled, “FBI in Internal Feud Over Hillary Clinton Probe.”
The August phone call between McCabe and the senior Justice Department official was acrimonious, the IG reported. “McCabe acknowledged that the PADAG call was a very memorable event in McCabe’s career. It involved a dramatic confrontation between McCabe and the principal Associate Deputy Attorney General, one of the highest ranking officials in the Department. McCabe told the OIG that, despite his long career in the FBI, he had never had a conversation ‘like this one’ with a high level Department of Justice official before or since August 12, 2016,” the IG wrote.”
If there should be a special counsel at all, it should be appointed to investigate the FBI’s corrupt behavior during the 2016 election.
That is the real scandal.
Bob Mueller has wasted millions of dollars chasing ghosts of Russian collusion as he attempts to undercut American democracy by nullifying a free and fair election.
The real collusion scandal involves the Obama administration and the FBI trying to rig the 2016 election.
Do you agree a special counsel should investigate Barack Obama, James Comey, Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe and others for their actions during the last election?
