‘Gag’ order: FBI confirms special secrecy agreements for agents in Clinton email probe
by Catherine Herridge & Pamela K. Browne
The FBI has confirmed to a senior Republican senator that agents were sworn to secrecy — and subject to lie detector tests — in the Hillary Clinton email probe, an extensive measure one former agent said could have a “chilling effect.”
A July 1 letter sent by a senior deputy to FBI Director James Comey to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley, R-Iowa, detailed the restrictions on agents. The letter, reviewed by Fox News, confirmed agents signed a “Case Briefing Acknowledgement” which says the disclosure of information is “strictly prohibited” without prior approval, and those who sign are subject to lie detector tests.
“The purpose of this form is to maintain an official record of persons knowledgeable of a highly sensitive Federal Bureau of Investigation counterintelligence investigation,” the agreement attached to the Grassley letter reads, “….I (FBI agent) also understand that, due to the nature and sensitivity of this investigation, compliance with these restrictions may be subject to verification by polygraph examination.”
In other words: the true nature of what was revealed shall never come out, agents.
A “chilling effect” is being kind. It is a “suppression of freedom” effect.
When something like this occurs, there is always a reason. What, at your greatest reach, do you possibly suppose might be one reason for this?
A gold star for those of you who said “because Hillary and the FBI via the DOJ via Loretta Lynch via Barack Hussein Obama have cut a deal to ensure that the truth is not revealed regarding the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s emails.” Plain and simple.
It doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to suss that one out. THE. FIX. WAS. IN.
Demorats, Leftists and the like all bleat “this is much ado about nothing.” I say: REVERSE THE ROLES. A Republican did the same things Hillary did. “Off with their head” would be the rallying cry from the American Media Maggots and everyone on the Left as well as Demorats. There would be no time limit and no minimization.
“Silly wabbit. Rules are for Proles, Groundlings, Serfs and Commoners.”
