Dismissed FBI agent changed Comey language in Clinton statement

Dismissed FBI agent changed Comey language in Clinton statement

Having the two top aides to the Democratic nominee getting pinched for lying to the FBI would have had unpredictable effects on the campaign with Comey's agency in the middle of it. So he gave everyone in Clintonworld a pass and took the FBI out of the campaign spotlight, until Huma's better half got in trouble in October for sleazy unrelated reasons and suddenly there were new Clinton emails on a laptop to parse.

In sum, there is a good deal of evidence for the proposition that Trump did not know Flynn had lied to FBI agents in his January 24 interview. Trump has harangued the FBI and the Department of Justice for failing to prosecute Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server. "With Nixon, hush money paid, telling people to lie, destroying evidence". The powers he is asserting, and the dangers it would bring, have almost no limit. He repeatedly demanded the FBI director pledge personal loyalty to him, and fired him when he failed to demonstrate his obsequience to the president's satisfaction.

"I dare you to tell Mueller you logged into POTUS's Twitter account and wrote "pled" and the rest of that, John Dowd".

According to the outlet, "gross negligence" is considered a criminal activity when it comes to the mishandling of classified material.

"Hillary Clinton lied many times to the FBI".

Mueller was right to let him go. The circumstances of the demotion remained a mystery for several months, with Mueller's office refusing to provide background information on the personnel move.

Dowd messed up. If his explanation is true, he did not 'put a bull's-eye' on Trump's back. He named Voice of America and Radio Free Europe, which receive their funding from Congress, as organisations the Duma would probably ban.

Fox News reported in an exclusive Monday that the DOJ's Office of the Inspector General is reviewing the role Strzok played in the Clinton email investigation. In one his messages, Trump again denied that he directed FBI Director James Comey to stop investigating Flynn. That has raised the ire of critics because, prior to joining Mueller's probe, he made edits to Comey's speech exonerating Hillary Clinton. As Comey said under oath that the president then tried to get him to drop the case, that episode therefore "feels a lot like obstruction", in the words of Harvard Law School professor Alex Whiting. Yates later testified before Senator Lindsey Graham's subcommittee of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Leland Vittert pointed out that Trump tweeted on Sunday that the fired agent is "tainted" and the FBI's "reputation is in tatters".

Original position: Donald Trump Jr. did not set up meetings with Russians, or if he did he wasn't "representing the campaign in any way, shape or form". She was very involved in the investigation and made the decision to inform the Trump White House that the substance of Flynn's contacts with Kislyak was not being accurately reflected in public statements by Trump-administration officials.

Mrs Clinton was investigated by the FBI ahead of the election after it emerged she had used a private email server to conduct state department business, but no charges were brought against Mrs Clinton or her team. In response to Russia's election hacking, the U.S. expelled not just one, but 35 spies posing as diplomats - the strongest response ever to a cyberattack against the U.S.

The retired Army lieutenant general also agreed to cooperate with Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his probe of Russian efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion with Trump associates. As the FBI's No. 2 counter-terrorism official, Strzok helped start both of the investigations.

And even if Abedin and Mills didn't roll over on Clinton, why not charge them anyway?
