Investigating the FBI's Clinton Investigation

Andrew McCabe, connected with the Clintons, didn't recuse himself until a week before the election.

How fixed was the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email servers? Where to begin? We’ve recounted former FBI Director James Comey’s role many times. But he wasn’t the only one perhaps steering the probe away from charging Clinton.

As our Louis DeBroux wrote last month, “Tangles upon tangles, we note that the investigation was supervised by then-U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein, an Obama appointee currently serving as Trump’s deputy AG, as well as Andrew McCabe, who served as assistant FBI director under Obama, and today as Trump’s deputy FBI director. This is the same McCabe who is under investigation for a $675,000 donation given to his wife, a Virginia state senate candidate in 2016, by Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, former DNC Chair and prolific fundraiser for the Clintons, also now under investigation by the FBI.” That $675,000 amounted to about 40% of her campaign war chest.

Judicial Watch, the tireless watchdog group that penetrates the vaults of government secrecy, revealed Friday, “We uncovered Justice Department records showing that McCabe did not recuse himself from the investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unsecure, non-government email server until Tuesday, November 1, 2016, just one week prior to the presidential election!”

McCabe was acting FBI Director for a time after Donald Trump fired Comey. But don’t worry; he was totally impartial.

Meanwhile, The Hill reports, “The FBI has begun turning over to Senate investigators hundreds of pages of memos regarding the bureau’s probe into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. … The memos detail how and when the bureau’s leadership declined to pursue criminal charges against Clinton for transmitting classified information on her private email server.”

With all of this stonewalling and politicizing, is it any wonder that Trump would tweet his disappointment in the FBI?
