This past week, it was revealed that former FBI Director James Comey predetermined the outcome of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email by not even investigating her. Though Comey thought he got away with this, he just learned he was VERY wrong.
Freedom Daily reported that Comey is facing the possibility of going to prison, as he committed a very serious felony by letting Clinton off the hook. While testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee last year, Comey lied under oath by saying that Clinton was not guilty of using her private email server to store classified and above-top-secret documents. On top of that, a newly revealed set of documents reveal that Comey intentionally tampered with evidence in order to water down the FBI’s findings.
The documents show that Comey’s draft statement on Clinton’s email probe was edited numerous times before his public announcement, in ways that seemed to water down the bureau’s findings considerably. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, sent a letter to the FBI on Thursday in which he exposed the multiple edits to Comey’s highly scrutinized statement.
In his original draft, Comey wrote that it was “reasonably likely” that “hostile actors” gained access to then-Secretary of State Clinton’s private email account. This was later changed to say that it was only “possible.”
In another edit, language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as “extremely careless” as opposed to “grossly negligent.” Johnson explained that this was a key legal distinction, as the original “could be read as a finding of criminality in Secretary Clinton’s handling of classified material.”
He added, “The edited statement deleted the reference to gross negligence – a legal threshold for mishandling classified material – and instead replaced it with an exculpatory sentence.”
It was also revealed that references to specific potential violations of statutes on “gross negligence” regarding classified information and “misdemeanor handling” were removed.
