IG Report: Former FBI Director Comey Used Gmail for FBI Business when Director Despite Warning Employees Against It & Going After Hillary Clinton for the Same
OH THE IRONY …
I guess we now know why Comey went soft on Hillary Clinton when it came to Hillary Clinton using her personal email and server when she was Secretary of State. As it turns out, from the IG Report and according to CNBC, James Comey used his personal Gmail account to do FBI business.
James Comey used a personal Gmail account to conduct FBI business on numerous occasions when he was director of the bureau — even though he had bluntly warned FBI workers they would be in “huge trouble” for doing the same thing, the Justice Department’s internal watchdog revealed Thursday.
His frequent use of a personal email account for unclassified FBI business was “inconsistent with” Justice Department policy, according to a report issued by the Office of the Inspector General.
Comey was criticized in that report for usurping the power of the attorney general in his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server for State Department business.
Comey had publicly said in the summer of 2016 that he was not recommending any criminal charges in connection with Clinton’s use of that email server.
Comey told FBI agents that if they used their personal email they would be in big trouble. But of course that same standard does not apply to crooked Comey.
But Comey added, “I have gotten emails from some employees about this, who said, ‘If I did what Hillary Clinton did I’d be in huge trouble.’”
“My response is you bet your ass you’d be in huge trouble,” Comey said in that speech.
“If you used a personal email, Gmail or if you [had] the capabilities to set up your own email domain, if you used an unclassified personal email system to do our business in the course of doing our business even though you were communicating with people with clearances and doing work you discussed classified matters in that, in those communications, TS/SCI, special access programs, you would be in huge trouble in the FBI,” Comey said.
From The Hill, Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended the firing of of the FBI’s top two former executives, FBI Director and Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, and warned that the forthcoming IG report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton probe could result in more people being fired.
On the eve of the release of a potentially explosive new report, Attorney General Jeff Sessions defended the termination of the FBI’s top two former executives and warned that the forthcoming report on the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton probe could result in more people being fired.
In an exclusive interview with The Hill’s new TV show “Rising,” which aired Thursday morning, Sessions defended the decision to fire ex-Director James Comey, who he said “made a big mistake” that belied a “serious breach of discipline.”
Sessions also made clear that he is open to firing more employees if the Justice Department inspector general’s soon-to-be-released report warrants it.
“I think it will be a lengthy report and a careful report,” he told “Rising” co-host Buck Sexton. “I think it will help us better fix any problems that we have and reassure the American people that some of the concerns that have been raised are not true.”
Everyone awaits the release of the IG’s report later today.
IG Horowitz Said to have Found “Reasonable Grounds” FBI Violated Federal Crimes in Bureau’s Handling of Hillary Investigation
IG HOROWITZ ABOUT TO DROP ANOTHER BOMBSHELL REPORT … CONNECTING THE DOTS.
According to investigative reporter Paul Sperry, Inspector General Horowitz found “reasonable grounds” for believing there has been a violation of federal criminal law in the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. Imagine that? I thought Comey told us that no reasonable prosecutor would ever have tried this case. The Fix was in from Comey, the Obama FBI and the DOJ from the outset.
A criminal referral could be on the way to Huber …
When the IG’s report finally breaks, former FBI director Comey will be put on the hot seat and have much explaining to do. The fix was in and the IG’s report will bring the FBI’s and DOJ’s misdeeds to light.
Hillary Clinton Aide Huma Abedin and Disgraced Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner Pull Out of their Divorce Case
HUMA JUST CAN’T SAY NO TO WEINER …
In a bizarre reversal, Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her sexting-a-holic, jailed husband Anthony Weiner have discontinued their pending divorce case. They claim this was done to protect their 6 year old son. Sorry, but the cynical side of me says this has everything to do with the scandal plagued couple not having to testify against one another, claiming spousal privilege, because of the pending federal probe. They will supposedly settle their separation privately. Who thinks that this is just a stall tactic to put this off until the Hillary Clinton email scandal blows over? Until then, Weiner remains in jail for his part in sexting a 15 year old girl and Huma remains loyal to Hillary. Its not like classified emails saved by Huma were found on Weiner’s laptop after Huma had lied to the FBI that she didn’t do anything to the sort. Oh wait, there was.
Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her jailed sext-a-holic hubby Anthony Weiner have ended their pending divorce case.
Identical statements from their lawyers Wednesday cited the scandal-plagued couple’s desire to protect their 6-year-old son by settling outside court — but experts say the real reason could be to shield one another from a potential federal probe.
Abedin, 41 — spotted over the weekend sunning herself at the luxury Four Seasons Hotel on Hawaii’s Big Island — was scheduled to appear in Manhattan Supreme Court for a compliance conference in her contested divorce case against Weiner, 53.
Instead, one of her attorneys submitted paperwork signed by both parties agreeing to end the case, a court source told The Post.
The judge announced from the bench that the case was “discontinued.”
Hillary Clinton’s Aide, Huma Abedin Forwarded State Department Passwords to Yahoo Email Account Before it Was Hacked By Foreign Agents
HOW DID HUMA NOT GET PERSECUTED BY OBAMA DOJ?
The double standard and separate justice provided to Democrats and those aligned to Hillary Clinton. Nothing should surprise us any more as to what those around Hillary Clinton did and what they got away with. As it turns out Hillary Clinton’s aide, Huma Abedin forwarded sensitive State Department emails to all of her less than secure Yahoo email accounts which were later hacked by foreign actors. Guess who were among the foreign agents that hacked Huma’s Yahoo emails, the Russians of course. According to The Daily Caller, the three email accounts Abedin used were email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com. None of this would have been possible had Hillary Clinton not set up her illegal private email server used for government purposes. Yet, where is the investigation and indictment of Hillary and Huma? No where of course. This is what happens when you had a politically, bias FBI and DOJ.
From The Daily Caller:
Huma Abedin forwarded sensitive State Department emails, including passwords to government systems, to her personal Yahoo email account before every single Yahoo account was hacked, a Daily Caller News Foundation analysis of emails released as part of a lawsuit brought by Judicial Watch shows.
Abedin, the top aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, used her insecure personal email provider to conduct sensitive work. This guarantees that an account with high-level correspondence in Clinton’s State Department was impacted by one or more of a series of breaches — at least one of which was perpetrated by a “state-sponsored actor.”
The U.S. later charged Russian intelligence agent Igor Sushchin with hacking 500 million Yahoo email accounts. The initial hack occurred in 2014 and allowed his associates to access accounts into 2015 and 2016 by using forged cookies. Sushchin also worked for the Russian investment bank Renaissance Capital, which paid former President Bill Clinton $500,000 for a June 2010 speech in Moscow.
