It has long been an open secret that Hillary Clinton and her staff had antagonized FBI agents during their investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state, but it’s only now becoming clear just how deep some feelings ran.
A report published in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair indicated that FBI agents in the bureau’s New York City office wanted Clinton gone, going so far as to joke around about the former Democrat presidential standard-bearer in handcuffs.
The tension got so bad, the report read, that FBI Director James Comey moved the majority of the investigation to Washington even though the New York City office was closer to Clinton’s home in Massapequa, New York, where her personal email server was located.
“Comey chose Washington because he wanted to be close enough to get daily updates, according to CNN, but he may also have been worried about leaks from New York,” Vanity Fair contributing editor Bethany McLean wrote in a piece critical of Comey’s decision to reopen the investigation into Clinton’s personal email server. “A former DOJ official says that, as early as 2015, a rumor was floating around that the FBI agents in New York were cracking jokes about seeing Hillary Clinton in handcuffs.”
“It was widely understood that there was a faction in that office that couldn’t stand her and was out to get her,” an anonymous Justice Department official told McLean.
This squared with reports we’ve heard previously that the FBI rank-and-file was furious with Comey’s decision not to prosecute Clinton.
“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted,” one FBI official told Fox News in October, describing the atmosphere in the bureau surrounding Comey’s nationally televised announcement in July that he would not recommend prosecution in the Clinton email case. “We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”
The FBI and James Comey have both been in heavy rotation as whipping boys for Hillary’s loss on the left. Earlier this week, for example, former Clinton campaign chairman pointed the finger openly at the FBI.
“There are at least forces within the FBI that wanted her to lose,” he said in a radio interview. “I’m not sure they really understood the alternative, but they wanted her to lose. I think that’s one possibility.”
Of course, Podesta never examined why FBI agents wanted Hillary Clinton prosecuted, which is that she likely broke the law. In fact, to Democrats, Hillary Clinton is never responsible for any of the reasons Americans may dislike or oppose her.
To them, it’s an honest (if grave) mistake of judgment if anyone says Hillary Clinton isn’t the most honest and virtuous politician since Cincinnatus. Usually, however, criticism of Hillary is the handiwork of sinister “forces,” diligently conspiring to undo the humble ambitions of a brave woman whose motives and actions are as pure as the newly driven snow atop a remote Vermont knoll on a frigid January morn.
Give me a break.
You know why these FBI agents were joking around about Hillary Clinton being in handcuffs? Because she probably belonged in them.
