Revolt Builds at FBI and DOJ

Most agents and attorneys believe Clinton shouldn’t have been allowed to walk.

FBI Director James Comey claims politics was irrelevant in the FBI’s decision to exonerate Hillary Clinton despite her jeopardizing national security by using unsecure email servers while secretary of state. But it’s increasingly evident that most colleagues in his field disagree. In fact, sources say most people at the FBI and the Department of Justice believe politics was the determining factor, which is quietly culminating into what could become a messy revolt.

According to Fox News, “More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.” As you know, the review resulted in no charges, yet an anonymous FBI official told Fox News, “No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision.”

The source went on to say, “It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted. We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us. … Basically, James Comey hijacked the DOJ’s role by saying ‘no reasonable prosecutor would bring this case.’… I know zero prosecutors in the DOJ’s National Security Division who would not have taken the case to a grand jury.” Other FBI agents have come forward as well, all of whom agree that the case reeks of deception and obfuscation.

In July a defensive Comey explained, “Opinions are irrelevant, and they were all uninformed by insight into our investigation, because we did the investigation the right way. Only facts matter, and the FBI found them here in an entirely apolitical and professional way.” On the contrary, former U.S. Attorney Joe DiGenova, who has been told a similar story of utter disunity, believes a lack of professionalism is agitating an agency that’s on the brink of collapse.

He told Hot Air’s Larry O'Connor, “This is a big development. This means there are some great, traditional, honest people inside the FBI and DOJ who will not let this stand. They know that Comey is a dirty cop and they are disgusted. Inside the bureau I had a meeting … with a senior former FBI agent who told me this exact story. That people are starting to talk. They’re calling their former friends outside the bureau asking for help. We were asked, today, to provide legal representation for people inside the bureau and we agreed to do so. And, to former agents who want to come forward to talk.”

In other words, things could get messy real soon. On the bright side, it’s encouraging to know there are government officials who still believe in Rule of Law.
