How the FBI is Standing Up To Hillary
The FBI is in the midst of a massive investigation of Hillary Clinton's emails. While the Bureau is conducting the investigation, their findings and recommendations will be passed on to the Department of Justice, who must make the final decision on whether or not to prosecute Hillary.
As the Daily Caller notes:
Clinton author Ed Klein says that if Hillary Clinton is not indicted, FBI Director James Comey and “a lot of other FBI agents” would resign as well in protest.
In an interview with Fox Business Network’s “Varney & Co” on Friday, Klein said, “I think Comey realizes that he’s got to wrap this [investigation] up well before the conventions otherwise he’s going to disenfranchise millions and millions of people. So I think this is going to be wrapped up in around six more weeks.”
Varney then asked Klein the obvious: would a Democratic administration actually indict the party's presidential frontrunner?
Varney then asked Klein, “But it’s up to the judgment of the Justice Department to say ‘yes indict’ or ‘No, don’t indict.’ It is not James Comey’s call, is it?“Well, it’s his call to make the referral and it’s up to the Justice Department. And if the Justice Department decides not to listen to what James Comey is suggesting, I think there’s going to be hell to pay.”
“Do you think James Comey would resign,” Varney asked.
“Yes, he already threatened to resign during the Bush Administration as you may recall when things did not go right,” Klein said. Adding, “Absolutely, I think he would resign and I think a lot of other FBI agents would go along with him.”
For months now, AAN has heard and relayed stories from within the intelligence community that have expressed frustration with the Obama administration's politicization of national security issues. If Klein is right, this may be the straw that breaks the camel's back.
