Despite Comey’s Claims, New Report Claims Emails on Weiner Laptop Never Reviewed by FBI

From Daily Wire:

A damning report by RealClearInvestigations’ Paul Sperry presents compelling evidence indicating that former FBI Director James Comey prematurely closed the investigation into Hillary Clinton based on political motivations and lied to the American people when he insisted days before the 2016 election that his agency had “reviewed all of the communications” found on the laptop of Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband Anthony Weiner.

Sperry notes that many wondered aloud at the time how the FBI could have possibly reviewed hundreds of thousands of emails in a matter of weeks. It turns out, Sperry explains, that they simply didn’t. In fact, evidence suggests they didn’t even come close, despite Comey’s assurances that they’d fully reviewed the communications:

Comey later told Congress that “thanks to the wizardry of our technology,” the FBI was able to eliminate the vast majority of messages as “duplicates” of emails they’d previously seen. Tireless agents, he claimed, then worked “night after night after night” to scrutinize the remaining material.

In fact, a technical glitch prevented FBI technicians from accurately comparing the new emails with the old emails. Only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.
