‘What are the odds that the FBI and DOJ are right on top of this?’
(Ben Sellers, Liberty Headlines) Chinese Intelligence may be up to its ears in yoga tips if reports prove true that its operatives secretly embedded code in Hillary Clinton’s private server metadata to receive a ‘courtesy copy’ of all her emails.
After it was hinted at in a July 12 House Judiciary Committee hearing with disgraced FBI official Peter Strzok, The Daily Caller investigated the matter and says it confirmed with two sources that the emails were, in fact, hacked.
A forensic analysis from the Intelligence Community Instructor General first brought the issue to light. But even after ICIG investigator Frank Rucker alerted Strzok, the FBI reportedly did nothing to follow up.
According to a Fox News report, the FBI continues to dispute the claims, saying it has found no evidence that Clinton’s servers were compromised.
However, previous ICIG investigations revealed FBI incompetence—or willful ignorance—in the Clinton email handling when it discovered emails stored on the unsecured server that were openly marked with a “C” denoting classified information.
In a text that Strzok sent to his mistress, Lisa Page, he acknowledged the blunder: “Holy cow, if the FBI missed this, what else was missed? … Remind me to tell you to flag for Andy [redacted] emails we (actually ICIG) found that have portion marks (C) on a couple of paras. DoJ was Very Concerned about this.”
Despite being aware of the classified information breach, the FBI rushed to close its investigation on Clinton, with FBI Director James Comey claiming on a July 5, 2016 statement that “no reasonable prosecutor would charge her.”
Strzok was later fired for his biased and unprofessional conduct.
Fox also reported that after former Inspector General Chuck McCullough came forward publicly with concerns over the Clinton emails, he began to receive pushback on Capitol Hill from politicians such as Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and was told to consider the “political consequences.”
Following the latest findings, President Donald Trump issued a pair of tweets calling on the FBI and Justice Department to follow up or risk further damage to their credibility.
Report just out: “China hacked Hillary Clinton’s private Email Server.” Are they sure it wasn’t Russia (just kidding!)? What are the odds that the FBI and DOJ are right on top of this? Actually, a very big story. Much classified information!
