'What in the Hell Is Going on With the DOJ and the FBI?'

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) take the DOJ and FBI to task.

New documents have come to light indicating that former FBI Director James Comey sought to water down language in his eventual exoneration of Hillary Clinton for her email scandal. It is now apparent that Peter Strzok, who was involved in the Clinton investigation, was responsible for some of the most significant edits. The motivation for this lessening of language severity seems to have been directly related to concerns over implicating Clinton for criminal intent.

On Thursday, Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) expressed his concerns to FBI Director Christopher Wray, writing that the original drafts “could be read as finding of criminality in Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified material. The edited statement deleted the reference to gross negligence — a legal threshold for mishandling classified material — and instead replaced it with an exculpatory sentence.” Johnson’s letter continued, “This effort, seen in light of the personal animus toward then-candidate Trump by senior FBI agents leading the Clinton investigation and their apparent desire to create an ‘insurance policy’ against Mr. Trump’s election, raise profound questions about the FBI’s role and possible interference in the 2016 presidential election and the role of the same agents in Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation of President Trump.”

Indeed, there are profound questions about corruption in this investigation, which, at least in part, was started because of a phony dossier paid for by Clinton and the DNC.

Below is a great video of Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) taking Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to task for the recently unveiled corruption at the DOJ and the FBI. His constituents, Gowdy says, are going to want to know, “What in the hell is going on with the Department of Justice and the FBI?”
