Prof. Michel Chossudovsky, writes on Global Research, that; The official main-stream media story as presented November 6, 2016, by the Washington Post (WP) echoed by CNN’s Anderson Cooper et al. intimate that the FBI worked assiduously around the clock and found nothing incriminating in the trove of 650,000 email.
“… dozens of FBI agents worked night and day to analyze a trove of messages that they thought might help advance their probe of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, according to a U.S. official.
“The pressure was intense … the agents’ work, at first, seemed endless. They had to use special software to sift through some 650,000 email,” per WP, November 9.
According to CNN, November 6, Hillary is Clean. “Cleared” by the FBI: “FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Sunday the agency hasn’t changed its opinion that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges after a review of new email.
“Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July”.
The main-stream media story is accepted at face value; No discussion, no debate of what’s in the email, etc.
Whilst; Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus had stated in a letter to Congress:
“The FBI found evidence Clinton broke the law, that she placed highly classified national security information at risk and repeatedly lied to the American people about her reckless conduct.
“None of this changes the fact that the FBI continues to investigate the Clinton Foundation for corruption involving her tenure as secretary of state. Hillary Clinton should never be president”.
About-turn at the FBI?
The media reports fail to mention the name of the FBI official in charge (of the investigation). It wasn’t Comey. It was his number two man, deputy director of the FBI; Andrew McCabe. While McCabe was in charge of the investigation, FBI Director Comey was entrusted with the release of a formal statement to the US Congressional committee.
Putting it mildly: Andrew McCabe is in conflict of interest, being; a senior official of the FBI and husband of Dr. Jill McCabe who ran for the State senate of Virginia in 2015. According to the WSJ, Hillary’s “Ally” Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe allocated $675,000 (R 8,698,117.50) in support of Jill McCabe’s candidacy.
“The political organization of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of the wife of an official at the Federal Bureau of Investigation who later helped oversee the investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s email use” – WSJ, October 23-24, 2016.
In late January 2016, Andrew McCabe was promoted to Deputy Director of the FBI and put in-charge of the investigation into Hillary’s email. The WSJ and other reports suggest internal conflicts as well as corruption within the FBI, on account of; possible divisions between Comey and his Deputy who was “indirectly” bribed by Hillary Clinton?
October 28, FBI director James Comey decides “to go clean” with a second letter to the US Congress, whence; the FBI director is accused of breaking the law.
In a bitter irony, nobody actually points to the fact that Andrew McCabe rather than James Comey had broken the law. That Andrew McCabe’s wife had received close to half a million dollars has gone totally unnoticed.
According to the WSJ, October 30; “… Others further down the FBI chain of command, however, said agents were given a much starker instruction on the case: “Stand down.” When agents questioned why they weren’t allowed to take more aggressive steps, they said they were told the order had come from the deputy director, Mr. McCabe.
“… Others familiar with the matter deny Mr. McCabe or any other senior FBI official gave such a stand-down instruction.”
There are grounds to question the validity of both Andrew McCabe’s investigation as well as the official statement issued by FBI Director James Comey.
