Hillary Clinton responded to the highly explosive report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz with three arrogant words.
“But my emails,” Clinton tweeted on Thursday.
Clinton was responding to a section in the IG report that revealed first FBI Director James Comey sent and received classified information on a private Google account.
So, the FBI Director, who used personal emails for work purposes, tasked Peter Strzok, who used personal emails for work purposes, to investigate Clinton’s use of personal emails for work purposes.
That is the very definition of incompetence, and further proves President Donald Trump had every right to fire Comey.
And, with respects to Clinton’s claim, she is dead wrong. The FBI and DOJ stated that she sent and received hundreds of documents via email that contained classified information.
That’s a felony, and many agree she should be charged for breaking the law.
The IG report also revealed that on Aug. 8, 2016, Strzok wrote to Lisa Page saying that they didn’t need to worry about Trump winning the election, writing “we will stop it” from happening.
“He’s not ever going to become president, right? Right?!’ Page wrote to Strzok.
Strzok responded: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”
Does that not sound like treason?
Strzok served as the No. 2 counterintelligence analyst at the FBI before being demoted last year and fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s team after an internal probe found that he had sent hundreds of anti-Trump text messages to Page, a former lawyer at the FBI with whom he was having an affair. Page abruptly resigned earlier this month amid the numerous allegations against her.
The 500-page IG report shows that Comey deserved to be fired; Strzok spoke about preventing Trump from taking office; numerous FBI agents broke protocol and smeared Trump in text messages; and that Clinton did send and receive classified information on her private email server.
