In an article by The Guardian‘s national security editor, Spencer Ackermann, reveals just how deep some of the agents within the FBI resent Clinton. It has now grown to fever pitch since FBI Director James Comey refused to recommend Secretary Clinton not be indicted for whatever crimes they believed she might have committed. Their problem is that there are no crimes and only spurious accusations.
Current and former FBI officials, none of whom were willing or cleared to speak on the record, have described a chaotic internal climate that resulted from outrage over director James Comey’s July decision not to recommend an indictment over Clinton’s maintenance of a private email server on which classified information transited.
“The FBI is Trumpland,” said one current agent.
This atmosphere raises major questions about how Comey and the bureau he is slated to run for the next seven years can work with Clinton should she win the White House.
The currently serving FBI agent said Clinton is “the antichrist personified to a large swath of FBI personnel,” and that “the reason why they’re leaking is they’re pro-Trump.”
The agent called the bureau “Trumplandia”, with some colleagues openly discussing voting for a GOP nominee who has garnered unprecedented condemnation from the party’s national security wing and who has pledged to jail Clinton if elected.
Ackermann spoke with Rachel Maddow last night on her MSNBC show.
Today, Guiliani admitted he knew. The leak most likely comes from inside the New York FBI office which has close ties to Guiliani from his tenure as a US Attorney and mayor of NYC. That office is where the investigation into the Clinton Foundation has been conducted based on the bogus claims in a largely discredited book by a Breitbart hack and secret recording.
The FBI’s New York bureau apparently does not read book or film reviews, and reportedly sought to open an investigation into the Clinton Foundation primarily on the basis of the allegations, debunked and otherwise, in Clinton Cash. The Department of Justice and U.S. Attorney in Brooklyn have, reportedly, repeatedly told the FBI that there’s no compelling evidence to continue their investigations, justify warrants or press charges (though some Fox anchors believe otherwise). The frustrated agents in the New York FBI office, intent on pressing some kind of charges against Hillary Clinton, were the ones who pressed Comey to review emails found in the Anthony Weiner for evidence that Clinton had mishandled classified information, leading to Comey’s vague letter to Congress that’s consumed campaign coverage in the final days before the election.
This is a direct violation of the Hatch Act by FBI agents. The agents involved in this should be immediately fired and charged. It falls to Attorney General Loretta Lynch, with the approval of President Barack Obama, to this take action. rein in Director Comey and his rogue agents.
