Very illustrative of the incestuous political quagmire is the extent to which the Bill and Hillary Clinton duo extend to their circle of suitors and benefactors such that when reading the multitude of reports surrounding the FBI’s re-investigation of Hillary’s email “situation,” one comes upon the same names and intersecting but disparate motivations over and over and, upon reading several stories, a theme, a thread of dubious continuity crystallizes in your mind and make you wonder.
Hmm. Your inner detective alights on a succession of evidence you can’t quite feel at peace with.
An interesting investigative report appeared in the Wall Street Journal detailing the internal schisms and antagonisms that are impaling the FBI’s hierarchical investigative structure over Director James Comey’s decision to publicly notify Congress of the bureau’s renewed intention to investigate additional emails pertaining to Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin and most other points unseen on this circle of hell known as Clintondise.
Federal agents are preparing to scour roughly 650,000 emails contained on the laptop of former Rep. Anthony Weiner to see how many relate to a prior probe of Hillary Clinton’s email use, as metadata on the device suggests there may be thousands sent to or from the private server that the Democratic nominee used while she was secretary of state, according to people familiar with the matter.
The review will take weeks at a minimum to determine whether those messages are work-related emails between Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide and the estranged wife of Mr. Weiner, and State Department officials; how many are duplicates of emails already reviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and whether they include either classified information or important new evidence in the Clinton email probe, which FBI officials call “Midyear.”
The FBI has had to await a court order to begin reviewing the emails, because they were uncovered in an unrelated probe of Mr. Weiner, and that order was delayed for reasons that remain unclear.
And indeed. We are left wondering why.
Pouring through 650,000 emails is an immense task but one of such monumental potential that we can’t simply discount the possibility there may be further nuggets of Clintonian duplicity to be unearthed in this sod.
The story continues.
The latest development began in early October when New York-based FBI officials notified Andrew McCabe, the bureau’s second-in-command, that while investigating Mr. Weiner for possibly sending sexually charged messages to a minor, they had recovered a laptop with 650,000 emails. Many, they said, were from the accounts of Ms. Abedin, according to people familiar with the matter.
At a meeting early last week of senior Justice Department and FBI officials, a member of the department’s senior national-security staff asked for an update on the Weiner laptop, the people familiar with the matter said. At that point, officials realized that no one had acted to obtain a warrant, these people said.
Mr. McCabe then instructed the email investigators to talk to the Weiner investigators and see whether the laptop’s contents could be relevant to the Clinton email probe, these people said. After the investigators spoke, the agents agreed it was potentially relevant.
The remainder of this article centers around the investigation’s role of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, the bureau’s second-in-command.
If you recognize the name, it’s most likely because it surfaced in the news last week.
Seems that Mr. McCabe is married to Dr. Jill McCabe, a hospital physician who ran for the Virginia State Senate in 2015, and whose campaign was “financially aided” to the tune of about $675,000 by Virginia Governor, Terry McAuliffe, a shyster rife with Clinton connections.
Now consider, if you will, a senior FBI official, entrusted with top level decisions involving the investigation into Hillary’s negligent email practices that might very well have left the United States vulnerable to nefarious foreign intrusion through her recklessness; an FBI official whose wife, while running for state political office, received over $600,000 worth of help from an inner functionary of the Clinton Nefarious Network.
Furthermore, let’s consider that the 650,000 emails were brought to McCabe’s attention in early October. There sat this astounding trove, apparently under the spell of “unurgency,” until last week during a meeting between the DOJ and FBI when it “suddenly” occurred to participants that no one thought to procure a warrant that would allow them to examine the hundreds of thousands of emails. These are professional law enforcement officers and not one single person thought to request a warrant until the same week a news story broke pointing out the deputy director’s too-close-for-comfort tendrils with the Clinton Cabal?
I am troubled by the meta-story that no one quite can wrap their head around involving the latest turn of events in this email saga.
On the surface, we learn over 600,000 emails have spontaneously appeared on our radar virtue of a parallel criminal investigation; this is astounding in itself, but one gets the sense that there are so many conflicting narratives and agendas and such outright ass-covering going on that ultimately, the truth, if it is exposed, will be owing to cowardly self-preservation, not to the honorable pursuit of justice.
But hey…whatever it takes to drain the swamp.
