Years ago, a friend of mine who was a law enforcement investigator told me that the more he dug into a case, the deeper the hole always gets for the guilty party.
When it comes to the scandal involving Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, some are still digging and it appears that the hole of the guilty continues to get deeper and deeper.
Contained in the latest batch of FBI emails about Clinton’s email scandal, it seems there was a direct effort by then FBI agent Peter Strzok intentionally delayed the investigation of the laptop belonging to former Rep. Anthony Weiner, then husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
They also revealed that there was an agreement between the State Department and the FBI to downgrade the Clinton email investigation.
Fox News – FBI scrambled to respond to Hillary Clinton lawyer amid Weiner laptop review, newly released emails show – Newly released internal FBI emails showed the agency’s highest-ranking officials scrambling to answer to Hillary Clinton’s lawyer in the days prior to the 2016 presidential election, on the same day then-FBI Director James Comey sent a bombshell letter to Congress announcing a new review of hundreds of thousands of potentially classified emails found on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
The trove of documents turned over by the FBI, in response to a lawsuit by the transparency group Judicial Watch, also included discussions by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page concerning a potential quid pro quo between the State Department and the FBI — in which the FBI would agree to downgrade the classification level of a Clinton email in exchange for more legal attache positions that would benefit the agency abroad. There was no indication such a quid pro quo ever took place.
And, in the face of mounting criticism aimed at the FBI, the documents revealed that Comey quoted the 19th century poet Ralph Waldo Emerson by assuring his subordinates, “To be great is to be misunderstood.” …
The question many of us are asking, is how deep will the hole need to be dug before anyone finally takes legal action against everyone involved, including Hillary Clinton, Huma Abedin, Anthony Weiner, James Comey and Peter Strzok?
There is no doubt that laws were broken by all involved, so why isn’t any of them facing indictments or prosecution?
How many of Trump’s allies have been indicted and are going to prison for doing much less?
Democrats continue to call for justice, but it’s obvious that they really don’t want justice.
They want to hold Republicans accountable while believing they (Democrats) are above and beyond the law.
