Report: FBI Agents Say Comey Stood in the Way of Clinton Investigation

He thought it would go away. It won't.

More information about the FBI's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation is coming to light and it isn't pretty. TruthRevolt previously reported that agents within the bureau were enraged Director James Comey did not bring charges against Clinton for her mishandling of classified information. We also reported that newly-released FBI documents show that a senior State Department Official attempted to bribe federal agents with overseas job postings in exchange for changing the classification of one of Hillary Clinton's emails.  

Now, through an interview transcript provided to the Daily Caller, some agents even believe Comey personally stood in the way of their investigation: 

“This is a textbook case where a grand jury should have been convened, but was not. That is appalling,” an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision. “We talk about it in the office and don’t know how Comey can keep going.”

The agent was also surprised that the bureau did not bother to search Clinton’s house during the investigation.

“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 said.

“There should have been a complete search of their residence,” the agent pointed out. “That the FBI did not seize devices is unbelievable. The FBI even seizes devices that have been set on fire.”

According to the report, another bureau agent said he takes offense when Comey says "we" (referring to their collective work at the bureau). 

Dailly Caller recalls that just last week attorney Joe DiGenova told WMAL that FBI agents are starting to join forces and speak out:

"People are starting to talk. They’re calling their former friends outside the bureau asking for help. We were asked today 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."

DiGenova added that "people inside the bureau are furious" and  "feel like they are being led by a hack but more than that that they think he’s a crook."

"The bureau inside right now is a mess."
