Political commentator Dick Morris, who served as the campaign manager to former President Bill Clinton rejoiced on Friday after news broke that prove the FBI is “closing in” on former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, reports The Western Journal.
“Chastised FBI Closes in on Hillary!” Morris wrote on Facebook as the caption for his latest “Lunch Alert” video. The FBI, Morris said, “has begun to clean up its act,” perhaps after being “lectured” by Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
Morris cited “two major statements” from the FBI that put Hillary Clinton “in a tough position” — the release of the original draft of the statement in which former FBI Director James Comey announced that Clinton would not be prosecuted for her use of a private, unsecured email server; and a report that the Clinton Foundation is being investigated by the bureau.
The Western Journal has reported that there were numerous edits made to Comey’s statement regarding Clinton’s private email server on May 2, 2016, that included five references describing her actions as “grossly negligent.”
This is a major change to what was eventually said by Comey in the hearing, and legal experts have noted that this change is significant because that is the legal standard found in the relevant statute regarding the mishandling of classified material.
One particularly damning portion that was struck from Comey’s statement, which he delivered to the press on July 5, 2016, read: “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statute proscribing gross negligence in the handling of classified information and of the statute proscribing misdemeanor mishandling, my judgement is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
Morris said it is clear that Comey’s editing “was designed to protect Hillary.” Morris went on to point out that Comey’s staff had originally “found that there was a very good likelihood that the emails (Clinton) had used were accessed by foreign intelligence sources.”
Morris points out that these edits show just how much the agents and bureau are “violently biased in favor of Hillary and against Trump,” and are essentially trying “to provide an insurance policy” in case Trump is elected president.
According to Fox News, it was FBI agent Peter Strzok who changed the language describing Clinton’s actions from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless.”
Text messages released by the Department of Justice’s Inspector General also show that Strzok had a strong anti-Trump bias when working for Comey and on the Clinton email server investigation.
In the texts, Strzok described Trump during the 2016 campaign as a “loathsome human” and an “idiot,” and found the prospect of him being president “terrifying.”
Strzok’s alleged mistress, FBI attorney Lisa Page, texted him, “There is no way he gets elected,” to which he replied, “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office … that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.”
“Andy” apparently referred to then-Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe, who served under Comey. Following the release of the text messages, McCabe, 49, reportedly indicated he will be retiring early this year.
Then, Morris began discussing the other piece of new involving Hillary and the FBI, which was a report from The Hill saying that the bureau agents in Little Rock, Arkansas are investigating the Clinton Foundation’s involvement in pay-to-play schemes and other illegal activities.
He said the foundation’s activities are “begging to be investigated,” and “at last,” they finally are.
