FBI officials claim the organization is alarmed about former Director James Comey deciding not to ask the Department of Justice to indict Hillary Clinton about her illegal use of aa private server while secretary of state to handle top secret information.
An interview transcript that The Daily Caller obtained shows that officials at the organization were annoyed with James Comey’s governance.
“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have convened but was not. That is appalling,” said an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases about the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”
The special agent was also shocked that the Bureau did not ask for a search warrant into Clinton’s house while the probe was still underway.
“We didn’t search their house. We always search the house. The search should not just have been for private electronics, which contained classified material, but even for printouts of such material,” he added.
There should have been a complete search of their residence,” said the agent. “That the FBI did not seize devices is unbelievable. The FBI even seizes devices that have been set on fire.”
A different special agent at the bureau that worked counter-terrorism and criminal cases noted that he was insulted by Comey’s saying: “we” and “I’ve been an investigator.”
Following his graduation from law school, Comey started working as a law clerk to a U.S. District Judge in Manhattan and later became an associate in a law firm in the city.
After he became a U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of New York, Comey’s career moved through the U.S. Attorney’s Office until becoming Deputy Attorney General during the George W. Bush tenure.
After the bush administration left, Comey entered the private sector and became a general advisor and Senior Vice President for Lockheed Martin. Obama picked Comey to be the FBI Director, replacing outgoing head Robert Mueller.
“Comey was never an investigator or special agent. The special agents are trained investigators and they are insulted that Comey included them in ‘collective we’ statements in his testimony to imply thSASthe SAs agreed that there was nothing there to prosecute,” stated the second agent. “All the trained investigators agree that there is a lot to prosecuted but he stood in the way.”
He further said, “The idea that [the Clinton/e-mail case] didn’t go to a grand jury is ridiculous.”
Washington D.C. attorney Joe DiGenova said that more FBI officials will be discussing the issues at the organization, in particular, the way Comey approached the Clinton investigation once Congress comes back into session and forces them to testify by issuing a subpoena.
Here’s what DiGenova told WMAL radio’s Drive at Five past week, “People are starting to talk. They’re calling their former friends outside the bureau asking for help. We were asked to day to provide legal representation to people inside the bureau and agreed to do so and to former agents who want to come forward and talk. Comey thought this was going to go away.”
“It’s not. People inside the bureau are furious. They are embarrassed. They feel like they are being led by a hack but more than that that they think he’s a crook. They think he’s fundamentally dishonest. They have no confidence in him. The bureau inside right now is a mess,” DiGenova argued.
He also said, “The most important thing of all is that the agents have decided that they are going to talk.”
