Hey, Trump, There's No Evidence Clinton Lied to the Federal Bureau of Investigation

Contempt FBI and DOJ

"The communications between members of the Clinton email investigation team raise questions about the integrity of that investigation and about the objectivity of Mr. Strzok's work for the special counsel and in the FBI's investigation of [former national security adviser Michael] Flynn", Grassley wrote in his letter to the FBI Director Christopher Wray. Although the original "G-man" J. Edgar Hoover was a tireless self-promoter for the federal law enforcement agency at a time when lawless gangsters like Bonnie & Clyde, Pretty Boy Floyd and John Dillinger were roaming the Midwest and creating bloody legends, he had a much darker side: his collection of dirt on virtually every public person in the US, which protected him from being fired until his death.

He promised reporters "plenty of time to talk" during the trip.

Then, in early November, we learned that an early draft of that memo had accused Clinton of being "grossly negligent" in handling classified material because she used an unsecured private email server while Secretary of State.

Activists and pundits have similarly accelerated their drumbeat of condemnations.

Fox News commentator Sean Hannity jumped into the fray this week, calling Mueller and his team "corrupt, abusively biased and political".

Strzok was quietly removed from the Mueller probe after text messages expressing anti-Trump bias were discovered. "[Rod] Rosenstein needs to explain what he was doing, what he knew and when, and Mueller needs to explain himself as well".

"I don't think so", said Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif., in a recent interview when asked if the committee could reach consensus.

"Robert Mueller's credibility is in the gutter with these new discoveries", Hannity railed.

"I am proud to be joined by my fellow conservatives in the House to call for an investigation into the FBI's procedures that allowed Hillary Clinton to receive special treatment", Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., said at a press conference Wednesday.

"We met with the department of justice ... and they have to go through the texts", Gowdy said. "The eventual goal, though, is to delegitimize Mueller in such a way that he can either be fired or can be ignored if he concludes the president broke the law".

It's only under a series of lawsuits to back up Freedom of Information requests by Judicial Watch, and extreme pressure by the House Intelligence Committee that we have learned that there were pages of pages of internal memos and emails within the Federal Bureau of Investigation about this meeting. "I can't imagine him being terminated", Senator Bob Corker, a vocal Trump critic, told the Post.

Republicans are now coming out in force in an effort to knock the Mueller investigation off the tracks. "I want to information to do our jobs, and we shouldn't have to fight with the Department of Justice to access that information". "Why do they continue when they have demonstrated distinct bias against this president and this administration". "But on the whole, I'm satisfied with the way it's progressing".

However, the "higher ups have had a really bad two years", he continued.
