The IG report that claims political bias motivated no official actions nevertheless found political bias and mysterious decisions.
I’ve written that the Inspector General report accusing the FBI of “appearance” of political bias whitewashed the FBI of actual political bias. But it also seems that the body of the report is more comprehensive than the executive summary and conclusions. Thus, there’s information that shows there was political bias present in the investigation of Clinton’s private server, and that there also were inexplicable decisions made in the investigation.
The Daily Caller reports, “‘Willingness’ To Impact The Election: IG’s Clinton Report Is Loaded With Bombshells.”
The Department of Justice’s internal watchdog released a much-anticipated report on the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state.
The report contained several bombshells.
The first bombshell listed in the story is that an FBI agent was willing to use his office to affect the election.
Anti-Trump FBI agent Peter Strzok showed a “willingness to take official action” to impact the presidential election, according to the new report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz.
““(Trump’s) not ever going to become president, right? Right?!” asked another anti-Trump FBI agent, Lisa Page. “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it,” Strzok replied.
Strzok’s text “is not only indicative of a biased state of mind but, even more seriously, implies a willingness to take official action to impact the presidential candidate’s electoral prospects,” the report said.
In this environment, for some mysterious reason, James Comey delayed doing anything about the emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
When further Clinton emails were discovered on a laptop belonging to former congressman Anthony Weiner, who is married to longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin, the FBI agents overseeing her case took just under a month to take meaningful action, Horowitz’s report found.
No later than Sept. 29, 2016, FBI executives and the agents who oversaw the Clinton email investigation were informed that “that Weiner investigation agents had discovered 141,000 emails on Weiner’s laptop that were potentially relevant to the [Clinton email] investigation.” Comey didn’t authorize a search warrant until Oct. 27, after he was briefed on them that day, the IG report found.
