Elder Patriot – Anyone who doubts that Barack Obama turned our justice system into a police state isn’t paying attention.
With the help of the legacy mainstream media and the social media giants, our investigative/prosecutorial agencies as well as our courts have become little more than protectors of a corrupt state.
There is no better example of this than James Comey, the many Obama chose to as his FBI director who has been diligent in protecting the Democrats criminal enterprise.
To keep this reasonably short and readable, we’re only going to highlight the former FBI director’s lies regarding his congressional testimony vis-a-vie HRC’s emails that were found on the Weiner laptop.
To recap, the laptop belonged to convicted sex offender Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin – Hillary Clinton’s closest adviser.
It was seized by the FBI’s Now York field office during the investigation while gathering evidence for Weiner’s prosecution. That was in late September (believed to be the 26th) just seven weeks before the election. When they FBI-NYO examined the laptop they discovered 694,000 emails belonging to Hillary Clinton.
This set in motion a series of obfuscations and outright lies by Comey. For the evidence we turn to Paul Sperry who has written an epic 15,000-word long piece for RealClearInvestigations.com. This may be the most comprehensive account of Comey’s corruption of the FBI currently in print.
Sperry’s investigation covers the timeline of the FBI’s non-investigation into the Hillary Clinton emails that were discovered on the Weiner laptop:
“Comey told Congress that “thanks to the wizardry of our technology,” the FBI was able to eliminate the vast majority of messages as “duplicates” of emails they’d previously seen. Tireless agents, he claimed, then worked “night after night after night” to scrutinize the remaining material.”
This was a complete lie on a number of fronts.
In fact, the FBI in Washington labored over how to bury the evidence that the FBI-NYO advised Comey’s office they had stumbled upon on September 26th. They didn’t take possession of the laptop until the New York office went public on September 28th, because the chief at that location was fearful that the blowback for this obstruction of justice would be directed at him.
On August 4th of this year – in an article that has mysteriously been purged from our website – we revealed three documents from the FBI’s vault files that indicate the laptop wasn’t turned over to the FBI’s cyber forensics lab until after the election.
So no “wizardry of FBI technology” had been employed prior to Comey’s second exoneration of Clinton. According to Sperry that didn’t happen because:
In fact, a technical glitch prevented FBI technicians from accurately comparing the new emails with the old emails. Only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information.
Comey had blatantly lied to Congress.
What of good old fashioned shoe leather by dedicated agents Comey had talked about? Not that either.
The last part of Comey’s statement was equally false. Sperry learned that:
Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.
For 3 agents working in a “12-hour spurt” would’ve required each agent to review 5 emails per second.
What of Comey’s claim that “the FBI was able to eliminate the vast majority of messages as “duplicates” of emails they’d previously seen.”
That defies logic. Hillary had previously turned over no more than 33,000 emails. Are we to believe that the laptop contained 21 copies or duplicates for every email.
What really happened?
The warrant application was so narrowly crafted by the DOJ filers that the FBI investigators only reviewed 3,077 of the 694,000 emails. That was barely 1/11th of the original tranche of 33,000 emails that Clinton’s lawyers turned over in early 2016.
“Most of the emails were never examined, even though they made up potentially 10 times the evidence” of what was reviewed in the original year-long case that Comey closed in July 2016, said a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation.
Where there was 21 times the potential amount of evidence contained on the laptop than originally examined before Clinton was exonerated in July, the FBI chose to look at only 1/225th of it. And then, only through very defined parameters intended to find nothing incriminating.
According to Sperry’s sources:
Yet even the “extremely narrow” search that was finally conducted, after more than a month of delay, uncovered more classified material sent and/or received by Clinton through her unauthorized basement server, the official said. Contradicting Comey’s testimony, this included highly sensitive information dealing with Israel and the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas. The former secretary of state, however, was never confronted with the sensitive new information and it was never analyzed for damage to national security.
WTF? Comey not only lied about the newly found breach of classified material that Clinton had sent or received, he failed to properly report his findings to the appropriate intel agencies so that they might conduct threat assessments to national security.
Or did he alert those agencies and are we yet to find that out? That would certainly explain the intel community’s collective desperation to remove Donald Trump from office.
