Fired former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) director James Comey used a private email account for government business while he was supposedly investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account and server for government business. Comey also deleted his Gmail messages.
This revelation comes courtesy of the Michael Horowitz inspector general report, which finally came out Thursday after a long round of editing by some of the people named in the report.
“We identified numerous instances in which Comey used a personal email account (Gmail account) to conduct FBI business. We cite five examples of such use in this section,” according to the inspector general report (page 425).
The report states: “We asked Comey about his use of personal email for FBI business and showed him the November 8, 2016 email with Rybicki as an example. Comey stated:
“I did not have an unclass[ified] FBI connection at home that worked. And I didn’t bother to fix it, whole ‘nother story, but I would either use my BlackBerry, must have been or Samsung…my phone, I had two phones—a personal phone and a government phone. Or if I needed to write something longer, I would type it on my personal laptop and then send it to Rybicki, usually I copied my own address…. Yeah. And so I would use, for unclassified work, I would use my personal laptop for word processing and then send it into the FBI.”
So, James Comey had a non-classified private email account at the same time he was investigating Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails off her private server.
That’s not all. He also claimed that he deleted every single email on his non-secure Gmail account, and tried to play that off as a noble thing.
Comey associate James Rybicki said: “In rare circumstances during his tenure, Director Comey sends unclassified emails from his official FBI.gov email account address to [his Gmail account]. This permits him to open attachments and use his personal laptop to then work on a speech or other content intended for wide dissemination. He then sends drafts or the completed text to his official FBI.gov email account or to another FBI.gov email account from [his Gmail account]. He opened this personal account at about the time he became Director…. To ensure a high level of cybersecurity, Director Comey routinely deletes all emails from his [Gmail] account each day, and then clears the deleted messages folder. He began this practice about two years ago. The Director does not recall receiving and/or seeking advice concerning the use of these accounts.”
Former FBI director James Comey issued a tweet on Thursday referring to Republicans attacking “confidential human sources,” effectively admitting that the FBI was spying on the Trump campaign.
Comey’s strange tweet reflects an admission of guilt following revelations that there was at least one spy and maybe two for the FBI in the Trump campaign and that outside Trump campaign-affiliated people named Carter Page and George Papadopoulos were being monitored in real time by the FBI. Both those men visited longtime CIA asset Stefan Halper at the University of Cambridge when the spying began…
‘This Investigation is a Sham’: Judicial Watch President Slams John Durham for Going Easy on the Deep State
Durham is dropping the ball.
Trump supporters are waiting with baited breath for U.S. Attorney John Durham to come out with his explosive findings in regards to his investigation into the origins of the Russian collusion probe against President Trump.
According to Judicial Watch founder Tom Fitton, Trump supporters are getting taken for a ride. Fitton said during a recent appearance on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight” that Barr and Durham are making no progress on investigating what very well may be the worst criminal conspiracy in U.S. history.
“You know, my concern is it’s been, what, sixteen-plus months since Durham was appointed and only now is he questioning Mr. Brennan,” Fitton said.
Fitton said that he is inclined to believe disgraced former CIA Director John Brennan when he says that he is not a person of interest in Durham’s investigation.
“I don’t see grand juries operating. I don’t see a bunch of witnesses coming in. I don’t see lawyers complaining about their clients being brought in before Durham,” Fitton said.
He said that the Mueller investigation was run much more thoroughly than Durham’s so-called investigation, the goal of which appears to be protecting the deep state.
“You know when the government is being pressure on witnesses and subjects and that is not evident here,” Fitton said, adding that it is his opinion that Durham is “not doing the work” needed to bring deep state criminals to justice.
Fitton did not object to Dobbs’ characterization that he is calling the Durham a “sham.”
“I’ll have to tell you. I’m a little concerned that the FBI is no longer an investigative agency because if this is the way they operate, it’s going to take them decades to deal with anything of real complexity,” Dobbs said.
“Well, [FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith] wasn’t arrested but they managed to arrest Stephen Bannon. The comparison and contrasting to me is just remarkable,” Fitton responded.
The entire exchange can be seen here:
Big League Politics has reported on how the DOJ seems intent upon covering up the immense corruption within the federal government:
Every person who has believed “trust the plan” propaganda received a reality check today after the release of the much-anticipated Inspector General (IG) report, which cleared the FBI of criminality and political bias in their plot to surveil President Donald Trump.
The fake news is gloating that President Trump has been proven false by the IG report’s findings. Although the IG report admits that the FBI’s investigation was improper in certain respects, it justified the underlying basis of the investigation and claimed it was not launched for political purposes because of authentic concerns about Russian collusion.
To sum it up, the deep state’s investigation of the deep state has found that the deep state essentially did nothing wrong.
The report ultimately concluded that no “documentary or testimonial evidence that political bias or improper motivation influenced the FBI’s decision to conduct these operations.” The IG report came to this conclusion despite the fact that 17 inaccuracies were discovered in three surveillance applications, including a completely promulgated rationale to spy on former foreign policy adviser Carter Page.
FBI Director Christopher Wray released a statement claiming that the report shows how the deep state is committed to serving the people.
“We are vested with significant authorities and it is our obligation as public servants to ensure these authorities are exercised with objectivity and integrity,” Wray said. “Anything less falls short of the FBI’s duty to the American people.”
Top Congressional Democrats released a statement claiming that the report’s findings vindicate their supposition that any talk of deep state wrongdoing is a conspiracy theory.
“Those discredited conspiracy theories were attempts to deflect from the President’s serious and ongoing misconduct, first urging Russia and now extorting Ukraine into interfering with our elections to benefit him personally and politically,” said Reps. Jerrold Nadler and Carolyn Maloney, the New York Democrats who co-chair the House Judiciary and Oversight committees.
It is looking like the swamp cannot be drained, as federal officials are caught committing brazenly illegal acts and go unpunished.
