The crazy reason the FBI didn´t search
the devices of Hillary Clinton´s inner circle

Washington Examiner [DC], by Tom Rogan

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 6/18/2018 4:59:56 AM

While the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton´s secret server where she kept official emails out of the view of the authorities until her lawyers could scrub them, for some reason, agents never searched the Blackberries or other email devices belonging to her inner circle at the State Department. Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz and his team received a crazy response when they asked FBI agents on the Hillary Clinton email investigation why not. The agents´ primary excuse was to point to "the culture of mishandling classified information at the State Department which made the quantity of potential sources of evidence

If the FBI REALLY wanted access to Hillary´s e-mails they could have gone to the NSA who did offer them to the FBI that would have been the end of the case.

The author seems to operate under the assumption that the FBI agents investigating Clinton wanted to find out whether or not she actually committed a crime. They did not.

The reason they did not search these devices is in this sentence from the article: " but it may also have produced physical evidence to indicate prima facie criminal mishandling of classified material."

They weren´t looking because the ´fix was in´ and they wanted their cushy jobs to continue plus they were being fitted for their new Gestapo uniforms.
When, then candidate, Donald Trump said the election was ´rigged´ and he might not concede James Comey hit the panic button to make it look legitimate when he announced the Carlos Danger laptop investigation. This might have lost it for Hillary.
I thought Trump just might have his own spy in Hillary´s evil circle and FBI. One never knows.

So they couldn´t search the devices because the amount of potential material was "vast". Well, in a criminal investigation, isn´t gathering a lot of material relevant to the case a good thing? Doesn´t getting more evidence for your side help your case? What´s the big deal about it being "vast"? Sure, you´ve got to work through it, and, maybe, when its all said and done, that´s the real reason why these bums didn´t bother with it: too much like work.

We didn´t look for evidence because there was too much to look at so now we can go about pretending nothing was wrong. Yea that´s the ticket.

Perhaps the most frightening aspect of all of this is that they don´t even feel compelled to do a better job of lying to us. It´s in our face because they know there´s nothing we can do about it.

This makes sense to me. There is so much evidence of wrongdoing by Clinton that the FBI is paralyzed just thinking about all the work they will need to do to catalogue it. In the Trump Collusion case there is no evidence at all so they go all out punishing Trump associates to get them to lie and make up evidence. All or Nothing indeed. It is not surprising that there was a "culture" at the state department of "gross negligence" in protecting classified information. If the boss does not care about it why should the employees.

It really staggers the imagination, the kind of excuses these people come up with. Like, "there´s so much potential evidence, we can´t do any work to look through it". Since when is an abundance of evidence a valid reason for spiking a criminal case? They go after people like Trump where there is essentially zero evidence, but then they say they have to be aggressive and dig through the dumpsters to find something. After all, its Trump, so there just has to be something we can find. Yet they look at the mountain of evidence against Hillary and shrug it off and shy away because there´s "vast" potential for more evidence to be uncovered. Talk about a world gone mad, this is it.

I used to respect the FBI. Not now and I spit on every Special Agent who took an oath, but lives a life counter to that oath. EVERY one of them. This corruption is so vast and so ingrained in the FBI that every agent must know about it or have some bit of knowledge or evidence that would prove Comey and others committed multiple felonies in their actions. IF they don´t know, IF they are really that clueless, they don´t deserve the badge. The fact that NONE of them, as far as we can tell, have done the surveillance or evidence gathering that is required for actual justice to be served. What we have is an organization of men and women only interested in power and perks for themselves. Gutless cowards, liars and thieves. Sad that such a damning description seems obvious, but look at the reality. NO ex-agents or retiring agents are stepping up either. ALL of them tainted by this and it is disgusting. Zero bravery or love of country evident.

I´ll give them one thing. With the weasel Sessions as AG, I can see how they have no idea of who to report to in DC. Without the ability to speak directly to the President, who do they trust? However, as FBI agents getting contact with the President would not be impossible, IF they were motivated to do so.

This "crazy" reason is the official but secondary explanation. The real reason was that Comey and probably other top FBI officials used their home computers to download classified material. How could they go after Clinton and Obama when they were guilty of the same careless, unlawful behavior and gross negligence? I´m thinking now that this is a common practice within the government and our classified information is now worldwide knowledge because of it.

It´s not difficult to understand, and Comey essentially laid it out in his presser.

It has always been their assumption Hillary was going to be POTUS, and they knew the level of retribution if they crossed her in any way.

Even though they aren´t a threat any more, this group ended up covering up the crimes, which is usually how people get caught-up in legal trouble, with some going to prison.

This likely went up to the very top within the previous administration, so there are some still needing to be protected.

The posters above are probably correct in their assessments. What really galls me is the brazenness that these people have when they do this kind of stuff. It´s so in-your-face it´s hard not to get worked up about it. But, in hindsight, the Clintons, and Obama, to a degree, have always been this way. It´s as if they are saying, "Yeah, I did it, but what are you gonna do about it, chumps?" They do it and know they´ll skate because the political establishment protects their own. One of the reasons I voted for Trump was I hope he has the guts to take these crumbums on and not put up with their obfuscations.

The safe time to find some wrongdoing on Hillary´s part is after they blaspheme the ground in Arlington Cemetery with her rotten remains. Then they can safely blame it all on her without worrying about the Arkansas Mafia. Webb´s kid doesn´t have the guts or the savvy to do anything about it but she´ll probably get to keep all the stolen money.

SANTA BARBARA, Calif — From Malibu to Santa Cruz, wealthy people are blocking access to California’s publicly owned beaches. And no group has fought the public longer than the gated community of Hollister Ranch, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles. For more than 36 years, residents there have spent millions of dollars on lawyers and lobbyists to bar the hoi polloi from an 8.5-mile-long beach adorned with several coves. In May, after more than four years of litigation over public access to the beach, a settlement was announced between the ranch cooperative, on one side, and the California Coastal Commission

Are you tired of all the winning yet? If you are a conservative who has followed the trajectory of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), you might be getting to that point. From its inception, the CFPB has been a big government liberal’s dream: no Congressional oversight, limitless investigative authority, and a leadership succession plan that seemed more feudal than democratic. Indeed, when CFPB Director Richard Cordray resigned in November 2017, the Left claimed he, not President Donald Trump, had the authority to appoint his successor. According to them, Deputy Director Leandra English was Cordray’s rightful heiress. So when the President appointed Mick

BERLIN — Nazi comparisons have become such frequent occurrences almost anywhere in the world that they rarely draw attention these days. But in Adolf Hitler´s birth country, Austria, they usually still strike a nerve whenever they come up. They certainly did so this week, after Jewish organizations criticized the far-right Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), the ruling coalition party in the state of Lower Austria, over pursuing a proposal that would require Jews to register with the government if they seek to purchase kosher meat. The same rules would apply to Muslims. “This constitutes an attack on Jewish and Muslim life,” the

"What if we were wrong?" That is the question then-President Barack Obama asked as he rode along in his presidential limousine with his foreign policy guru Ben Rhodes. The question came in the aftermath of the surprise presidential election victory by political newcomer and television reality star Donald Trump. Obama questioned whether he and liberals had forgotten how important identity was to people and had pushed a progressive agenda too far, too quickly. Obama wasn´t only wrong in understanding where the electorate was in 2016 but was frequently wrong throughout his presidency.

A joint team including South Korean, British and Canadian explorers on Sunday found the wreck of the Dmitrii Donskoi more than 1,400 feet below sea level and a mile off the coast of the South Korean island of Ulleungdo, according to CNBC.

Brockton, Mass., is known as the birthplace of boxing legend Rocky Marciano. But with U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren pushing for a $1 billion Native American casino less than 20 miles away, struggling blue-collar Brockton´s competing casino bid might not stand a fighting chance. Brockton Mayor William Carpenter slammed Warren’s bill on behalf of the Masphee Wampanoag tribe, which would override a federal judge´s decision last year to block the tribe’s plan for a luxury gaming resort in East Taunton. He says Warren seems to be acting on behalf of special interests instead of people like Brockton´s struggling residents.

Since her surprise primary victory over 10-term Congressman Joe Crowley in New York’s 14th District, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been promoted by the media as the prototype of a new generation of young progressives destined to replace the leadership of the Democratic Party. Unfortunately for her media boosters, however, she keeps blowing her lines. It’s not just her rote advocacy of single-payer healthcare and guaranteed government jobs, or even that she backs wacky ideas like abolishing ICE and occupying airports — Ocasio-Cortez is genuinely clueless. She outed herself, in several recent interviews, as functionally illiterate in economics, international relations, and history.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is making plans to move the headquarters of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) out of Washington, D.C., to a city in the West. The federal government owns 640 million acres in the U.S., or roughly 28 percent of the nation’s entire landmass. The BLM manages 248.3 million acres of public land, more than any other agency, according to a March 2017 report by the Congressional Research Service.

Beating your wife is worse than protesting during the national anthem. So, too, is sexually assaulting a woman. While that might seem obvious, it needs to be clarified given The Associated Press´ report Thursday that the Miami Dolphins are now including protesting during the anthem on their list of "conduct detrimental to the club." Under NFL rules, that´s an offense punishable by a suspension of up to four games. The Dolphins later told the AP that "all options are still open." But to give you an idea of how heinous at least one NFL team sees trying to draw attention to racial and economic inequality, a four-game suspension is

Before the word "resignation" became a euphemism for being fired, it connoted a sense of public integrity and personal honor. Attorney General Elliot Richardson and his deputy, William Ruckelshaus, showed both qualities when they resigned from the Nixon administration during the Saturday Night Massacre in 1973. Jimmy Carter’s secretary of state, Cyrus Vance, did likewise when he resigned during the Iran hostage crisis in 1980. Assuming Mike Pompeo and John Bolton still have their own senses intact, they, too, should resign following the epic disgrace of the U.S.-Russia summit inHelsinki on Monday.
