Insider information about what went on behind the scenes during the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server scandal is now being revealed to the public. The shocking information proves once and for all the Clintons simply are not playing by the same rules as the rest of us.
In the newly released book, Guilty As Sin, author Ed Klein said FBI sources maintain Attorney General Loretta Lynch shared investigation reports with the White House weekly. If the report is true, Lynch also visited the White House personally with one of her chief prosecutors in tow to discuss the ongoing investigation.
An excerpt from Chapter 16 of Guilty As Sin, “High Noon In The Oval,” was given to and shared byNewsmax. If the report is accurate, FBI James Comey was infuriated by the intrusion into the investigation by the Justice Department.
“You could always tell from the look in his eye when James Comey had his Irish up. And the FBI director had that killer look right now,” the book excerpt said when detailing how Comey reacted when handed a White House press conference printout from earlier the same day.
In the printout, Obama’s White House Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, responded to a reporter’s question about whether or not Hillary Clinton was likely to be indicted on criminal charges. Earnest said based on what the White House knew at that moment, the Justice Department did not seem to be “headed in that direction.”
“Based on what we know! How does Earnest know anything?” James Comey asked rhetorically, according to the Guilty As Sin book excerpt.
The book also revealed uniformed FBI agents reportedly told their director that Department of Justice prosecutor Loretta Lynch took documents to the White House to give an update briefing on the investigation to Obama’s staff while the FBI was actively working on the Hillary Clinton case.
Loretta Lynch has vehemently denied going to the White House to brief Obama or staffers on the Hillary Clinton case because doing so would obviously be unethical. She also denied sending over documents pertaining to the case for review by Oval Office staffers.
“I hope the American people know the FBI well enough and the nature and character of this organization,” Comey said when hauled before Congress to explain how Hillary is getting by with mishandling classified information when others who had exposed far fewer such documents did not. “As I’ve said many times, we don’t give a rip about politics.”
According to Ed Klein’s sources, the meeting and communications between the Justice Department and the White House had been taking place since the summer of 2015. James Comey and the FBI agents assigned to the case surely had to be aware of the highly political nature of the Hillary email investigation.
The FBI director apparently did not think he had to stonewall the attorney general in order to protect the integrity of the Hillary Clinton case, but he sure should have. Legally, he really didn’t have any ground to stand on if he did try to prevent the Justice Department from having access to the Clinton investigation files.
