Who politely refused.
Who knew the swamp was this deep? At 6′ 8″, James Comey is going under.
A whistleblower reported last year that the National Security Agency (NSA) was in possession of Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails. With the corruption and lawlessness inside the Obama administration, the existence of those emails was a jealously guarded secret.
Now it is being reported that FBI director James Comey was offered those emails by the NSA — and he refused them, obviously to keep the likely very incriminating evidence out of the case he was charged with investigating impartially. The swamp gets deeper.
Numerous reports coming out of the Senate Judiciary Committee last week said that former Comey made the decision not to refer Clinton for prosecution long before he even interviewed key witnesses, including Hillary.
The New York Post reports new bombshell under the umbrella headline “Proof that investigating Trump is starting to backfire for Democrats,” which also reminds us that Comey chastised Clinton harshly on TV before recommending that she not be prosecuted. Post author John Crudele adds:
Comey fibbed when he said his agents unanimously agreed that prosecution was unnecessary. In fact, my source says that FBI agents were irate about the decision not to go after Clinton.
The controversy got pretty intense, which may be why Comey forced agents who worked on the Clinton matter to sign additional nondisclosure agreements.
