For decades, American’s have trusted that the FBI would always have their best interests at heart, even if we could actually trust the FBI.
The secretive organization is famous for its men in black zooming around in dark tinted cruisers, acting notoriously obtuse when it came time to share information with the local cops. It’s a trope that is as old as time, but for good reason: The FBI needn’t answer to every country bumpkin trooper on the block, given the magnitude of what the bureau tends to deal in.
Over the course of the last year and a half, however, a different opinion of the FBI has come to light in America – one of a bumbling, left-leaning establishment of circular logic that can’t stop playing favorites. In the case of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, and the subsequent inaction of the FBI, this has never been more apparent.
Now, after James Comey originally took the hit for refusing to charge the admittedly criminal Clinton, it looks as though Andrew McCabe’s sudden “resignation” yesterday may simply be the other shoe dropping, so to speak.
“An ongoing government review of the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation has focused on recently departed FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe’s role near the end of the 2016 campaign, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
“The Justice Department’s inspector general has been asking for months about the timing of the FBI’s decisions about Clinton-related emails on the laptop of disgraced former New York Democratic Rep. Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin.“McCabe, then the second-ranking official at the FBI, ‘appeared not to act for about three weeks’ when some of those emails were requested for examination, the Post reported, citing an undisclosed number of sources familiar with the matter.“According to the Post, the decision in late October 2016 came about three weeks after FBI leadership was alerted to the finding of the emails on Weiner’s laptop. The inspector general has sought to find out whether McCabe or anyone else at the FBI wanted to avoid moving forward on examining the Weiner emails until after Election Day, the report said.”
