Comey Memo Edits Warrant Indictments

Flopping Aces

by Daniel John Sobieski

 

Now we know that not only did Hillary Clinton show intent in her handling of classified materials routed through her private server, but that former FBI Director James Comey and his team showed intent in letting her get away with it to the detriment of American national security.

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Homeland Security Committee, in a Thursday letter to current FBI Director Christopher Wray, reveals how edits to Comey’s exoneration memo went beyond changing “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” but edited out content that shows the FBI knew Hillary was intentionally in violation of the Espionage Act but that, since the decision to exonerate her had already been made, they had to submit to the annals of history a lie they agreed upon:

Newly released documents obtained by Fox News reveal that then-FBI Director James Comey’s draft statement on the Hillary Clinton email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings considerably.Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI on Thursday that shows the multiple edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.

In an early draft, Comey said it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email account. That was changed later to say the scenario was merely “possible.”

Another edit showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” This is a key legal distinction.

Johnson, writing about his concerns in a letter Thursday to FBI Director Christopher Wray, said the original “could be read as a finding of criminality in Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified material.”

“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 by President Trump,” Johnson said.

Indeed this does raise profound questions. Coupled with the text messages of lead investigator, FBI Agent Peter Strzok,who has become known as the Zelig of the FBI who mysteriously appeared at every controversial moment, expressing clear intent to prevent the election of Donald Trump, we have before us a criminal conspiracy in which the most powerful law enforcement agency on this planet conspired with one political party to defeat the candidate of the other:

The letter reveals specific edits made by senior FBI agents when Deputy Director Andrew McCabe exchanged drafts of Comey’s statement with senior FBI officials, including Peter Strzok, Strzok’s direct supervisor, E.W. “Bill” Priestap, Jonathan Moffa, and an unnamed employee from the Office of General Counsel (identified by Newsweek as DOJ Deputy General Counsel Trisha Anderson) – in what was a coordinated conspiracy among top FBI brass to decriminalize Clinton’s conduct by changing legal terms and phrases, omitting key information, and minimizing the role of the Intelligence Community in the email investigation. Doing so virtually assured that then-candidate Hillary Clinton would not be prosecuted.

Imagine what was at stake here. If the FBI had just followed the evidence where it led and drew the obvious conclusions, Hillary Clinton would have been indicted, the Democratic Party would have been irreparably shattered, with Donald Trump winning in a popular vote as well as electoral vote landslide. This, in the view of a corrupted and politicized FBI had to be prevented at all costs and the Comey memo had to be sanitized before its release:

An Open Letter to the Traitors in the Deep State

US Defense Watch

 

Dear Deep State Traitors:

You really think you’re on a roll don’t you. With your swamp rat Robert Mueller and his Chilean Junta style farce investigation; your evil acolyte, James Comey, who it’s safe to say is the dirtiest cop in America; your FBI agent, pro Clinton political hack, Peter Strzok; your dirty, disloyal and un-American FBI hierarchy; your globalist sleepers planted in the intelligence community, the complete unraveling of the US justice system is in process.

At your disposal is a current adjutant general who is seemingly paralyzed on the job, an assistant attorney general working against the President, an acting FBI director who eats, breathes and sleeps the Democratic Party, and your willing executioners in the mainstream media, from know nothing fools like Joy Behar to mentally ill talk show hosts like Morning Joe and his globalist girlfriend, Mika Brzezinski.

Several things have become more than crystal clear in the last year: one, a two tiered judicial system exists in this country – one for the Clintons and their minions, and the other for the rest of the nation; two, the Deep State is working hand in glove with globalists to bring down the President by turning its own crimes on him; furthermore, it is more than obvious that you do not have the best interests of America in mind. You have the best interests of globalism, corruption, lining your pockets and establishing a banana republic in America in mind.

While Mr. Trump’s crimes are non-existent, your crimes are long and legendary; from the illegal wire-tapping of candidate Trump and President-elect Trump, to the farce called the Hillary Clinton email investigation, to the multiple national security felonies and misdemeanors committed by Madame Secretary, to the sale of 20% of the nation’s limited uranium supply to our enemies, to your goals of opening our borders permanently and selling out the American worker to $10 an hour part time jobs, while our brave soldiers and marines fight endless, unwinnable wars.

You are not patriots, far from it. You are blackguards, villains as old as time. What you are is traitorous scum that has sold out to your own greed and lust for power.

This brings us to the current situation with the imaginary special counsel seeking imaginary indictments for imaginary crimes to salve the wounded psyche of criminal and supreme narcissist Hillary Clinton and her liberal supporters who can’t grasp a simple concept – they lost.

Since the announcement last weekend that General Flynn, the greatest scapegoat to walk this earth since Dreyfus, would be charged with lying to the FBI, the RUMINT (rumor intelligence) is that the President would be indicted by Christmas, on charges of obstructing justice during the Russian collusion investigation.

As you well know, the only collusion with Russia has been done by you and Democratic Party operatives. The only obstruction of justice has been done by you and Hillary Clinton. No doubt, Mr. Mueller believes he can pull this all off; the indictment of a President based on nothing, followed by the nothing response from a gutless Congress and a mentally AWOL adjutant general. No doubt, you believe the American voters will just sit by and let you piss away our republic.

This is not 1963; the last time you conducted a coup d’etat against a President who was changing America for the better. People are informed and know what your game plan is. If you think you can bring down President Trump and continue your globalist corruption like nothing ever happened, think again.

The people elected Donald J. Trump as President. That you cannot comprehend the will of the people is a testament to your outrageous arrogance and complete criminality.

The people that you detest so much are heavily armed and if called upon, will use their God-given, Second Amendment rights to restore law and order in this country.

What does this mean for you? It means this. If you indict, impeach, assassinate, or in any way depose President Trump, there will be problems. You can interpret ‘problems’ any way you desire.

Mr. Trump’s millions and millions of supporters, labeled ‘deplorables’ by your candidate, an odious, delusional despot, seek only peace and the freedom to live the American Dream.

It’s more than obvious that you wish to deny Americans the right to the pursuit of happiness.

It’s more than obvious that you wish for us to live like 21st Century serfs, while you live like 17th Century kings and queens.

This country was born out of revolution, a revolution fought against people just like you. Be on notice, an armed population awaits you as we awaited the Redcoats at Lexington and Concord.

You have been warned.

Mystery Solved: Now We Know Why Comey Did Nothing About Hillary

IBD

Russia Scandal: No wonder former FBI Director James Comey refused to press charges last summer against Hillary Clinton for her egregious security breaches: It turns out, he may have been guilty of the same thing.

As the inside-the-beltway political publication The Hill reported, more than half of the memos FBI Director James Comey wrote after having spoken to President Trump about the Russia investigation contained classified information. The Hill cites as its sources “officials familiar with the documents.”

Not surprisingly, perhaps, Trump on Monday morning tweeted out an angry response: “James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED INFORMATION to the media. That is so illegal!”

He may be onto something there.

Clinton, Top Aides Still Have State Dept. Security Clearances

Free Beacon

BY:

Hillary Clinton and seven of her top aides have retained their State Department security clearances a year after the FBI concluded they were “extremely careless” handling sensitive information.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R., Iowa), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, revealed Clinton’s current security clearance status on Friday. Grassley released the information to express concern about the State Department’s slow bureaucratic process, Circa reported.

“The State Department confirmed that it is continuing to review the mishandling of classified information that passed through Secretary Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized email server as she and seven former aides retain access to sensitive information,” Grassley’s office said.

Clinton, who served as secretary of state under former President Barack Obama, and seven of her aides were designated as “research assistants” in order to keep their security clearances.

Clinton was under investigation for using a private email address and home-brewed server to send and receive classified information during her tenure at the State Department.

Former FBI Director James Comey said last July that Clinton and her top aides were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

“There is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information,” Comey said.

Comey recommended that the Justice Department not pursue criminal charges, however, because he could not prove Clinton intended to break the law by using a private email server.

Grassley sent a letter to the State Department in late March asking for Clinton’s security clearance details.

Finally, one of the Chief Swamp Creatures—Fired!

Family Security Matters

by SHER ZIEVE

 

James Comey was one of the Albatrosses and land mines Obama had left for President Trump.  Former FBI Director Comey appears to have become unstable in his position, as he began to usurp more and more power for himself; even to the point of making decisions for Obama AG Lorretta Lynch.  Most recently, he seemed to be attempting to even commandeer the power of the United States presidency.  President Trump promised to drain the D.C. swamp and one of its chief creatures has now been given his walking papers.

Members of the Democrat Party who had previously indicated-both before and after the November 2016 election–that they would like to tar and feather Comey and ride him out of town on a rail, are now beside themselves (a dangerous place for anyone to be) with rage that he was fired for his misdeeds by President Trump.  Any sensible human might ask “Why?”  Comey had divulged that the discovered emails of the Democrat Party’s (then) patron Saint Hillary had committed acts that would be criminal for anyone but a leftist Democrat…and/or any Clinton.  However, he had done it in a way-Comey’s now infamous ‘Hillary’s-guilty-but-I’m-letting-her-go-free’ speech to the nation-that flew in the face of FBI protocol and, likely, the law of the land.  Listening to Senator Schumer (the Dem Party’s titular head) at the time of Hillary’s Emailgate, one would have thought it should have been Comey-not Hillary-who was to blame for Hillary’s sending classified information hither and yon.  So…why is this same Schumer-who had actually and previously called for Comey’s firing–now speaking of Comey as if he’s a fallen hero for the Luciferian Left’s cause?  To We-the-People who have never chosen to live under rocks-the answer is obvious.  It was solely because President Trump fired him…and members of the Democrat Party leadership teams hate Trump tenfold more than they do Comey.

The lunacy of this is that only the President could have-under the US Constitution-fired him.  Comey served at the pleasure of the President.  And, President Trump was no longer pleased.

Clinton Email Scandal: It’s Time Hillary Suspended Her Campaign

Investors.com

Corruption: Though she tries to ignore it, Hillary Clinton can’t escape her email problem. Almost every day brings more trouble for her. It’s time she did what a decent person would do — temporarily shelve her presidential campaign.

While Clinton leads Sen. Bernie Sanders in the delegate count, the former secretary of state is far behind everyone on the ethical score. She is consistently battered by news that reminds voters just how corrupt she is and now is facing a report that the FBI director is convinced she broke the law.

“FBI chief James Comey and his investigators are increasingly certain that presidential nominee Hillary Clinton violated laws in handling classified government information through her private email server,” Charles Gasparino wrote Sunday in the New York Post, citing “career agents” as sources, some of whom expect Comey “to push for charges.”

Meanwhile, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton said the “pressure is definitely building” in the case and predicted “that the FBI will explode” if “politics can triumph over the legalities.”
