Three intelligence sources told Fox News that the investigation into Hillary Clinton has been expanded into public corruption and possible quid pro quos between the Clinton Foundation and contracts awarded by the State Department. The sources claim that at the end of the investigation if Obama and Lynch refuse to prosecute, the FBI will be screaming bloody murder since they have sought and gained convictions in cases in which there was much less evidence that that exists from the probe of Clinton.
“The agents are investigating the possible intersection of Clinton Foundation donations, the dispensation of State Department contracts and whether regular processes were followed.”
From Fox News:
One intelligence source told Fox News that FBI agents would be “screaming” if a prosecution is not pursued because “many previous public corruption cases have been made and successfully prosecuted with much less evidence than what is emerging in this investigation.”
The FBI is particularly on edge in the wake of how the case of former CIA Director David Petraeus was handled.
One of the three sources said some FBI agents felt Petraeus was given a slap on the wrist for sharing highly classified information with his mistress and biographer Paula Broadwell, as well as lying to FBI agents about his actions. Petraeus pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor in March 2015 after a two-plus-year federal investigation in which Attorney General Eric Holder initially declined to prosecute.
The Petraeus case was extremely limited in scope, while Hillary’s is wide spread. The FBI hates spending vasts amount of time investigating and proving charges just to have Obama block them. Holder originally declined to prosecute Petraeus until the FBI raised a giant stink about it.
The FBI has 100 agents working full time on the Clinton probes, with another 50 doing part time detail. All of the agents involved were forced to sign a non disclosure statement.
In addition, a highly ranked source within the State Department explained to Fox News that someone would have to go out of their way to use a private email system:
“It is virtually automatic when one comes on board at the State Department to be assigned an email address.”
“It would have taken an affirmative act not to have one assigned … and it would also mean it was all planned out before she took office. This certainly raises questions about the so-called legal advice she claimed to have received from inside the State Department that what she was doing was proper.”
