When a law enforcement agency throws up its hands because there’s simply too much wrongdoing, you know there is something incredibly wrong with the justice system in this country.
But that is exactly what happened when the FBI failed to investigate staff members of Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
The Justice Department inspector general report on the Clinton email investigation has as many shocking revelations as a Tom Clancy novel.
The report slams leadership in the FBI for being blatantly negligent and inadequate in its performance during the investigation.
It also makes it plainly clear that former FBI Director James Comey’s agency was operating under the pretense that Clinton was going to win — and all of this would have just been swept under the rug anyway.
But sandwiched in between all of that is the fact the FBI simply did not do its job.
The report openly admits specific devices were never checked because the FBI was afraid of how much information would be revealed and the vastness of the devices it would have to check.
The agency also came to the conclusion that all would be best served by the State Department conducting an internal investigation.
How Can That Be?
Let that sink in for a moment…
A massive FBI investigation was ordered, and rather than do their job, the agency decided to kick the investigation back to the agency that was being investigated.
This might be acceptable if there was just one person being investigated.
However, as the report states, the violations of policy were so vast that dozens of people in the agency more than likely violated protocol for the handling of classified documents.
This would be like coming home to three guilty-looking children and a broken window and asking them to investigate who broke it and get back to you with the answer.
Anyone challenging President Donald Trump’s statement that he has been completely vindicated in the firing both Comey and former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe after seeing that report has a serious case of the crazies.
Not only was Trump vindicated in terminating them both, but charges should be filed against them.
In addition, that report leaves no doubt there needs to be a real investigation into the Hillary Clinton email scandal. The FBI clearly failed us on this one.
