The Washington Post reported this next story that is based on people (anonymous sources) familiar with the contents of the email in question who discussed it with The Washington Post.
Who are these people who constantly leak?
The story begins: A secret document that officials say played a key role in then-FBI Director James B. Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation has long been viewed within the FBI as unreliable and possibly a fake, according to people familiar with its contents.
The story claims that in July former FBI Director James Comey used this possibly fake Russian document to justify his decision to end the investigation into Hillary’s use of a private email server to send out classified information.
The FBI allegedly received this alleged document in March 2016 which was an email exchange between then-DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Leonard Bernardo, an official at Soros’s Open Society Foundations. In it, Wasserman-Schultz said then-AG Loretta Lynch told a top Clinton aide that she would not allow the Clinton probe to go too deep.
Wasserman-Schultz and Bernardo say they don’t even know each other and the FBI says it had no relevance in the decision because they knew it was fake.
However, fake news WaPo says Comey “might have used” the document to go public with his decision to end the investigation into Hillary’s private server.
“It was a very powerful factor in the decision to go forward in July with the statement that there shouldn’t be a prosecution,” a person familiar with the matter to the Post. “The point is that the bureau picked up hacked material that hadn’t been dumped by the bad guys [the Russians] involving Lynch. And that would have pulled the rug out of any authoritative announcement.”
As it turned out, the FBI allegedly found the document to be bad intelligence, even fake, planted to confuse the agency and Comey would not have used it.
“It didn’t mean anything to the investigation until after [senior FBI officials] had to defend themselves,” one person familiar with the matter told the Post. “Then they decided it was important. But it’s junk, and they already knew that.”
Comey has not responded.
Is your head spinning yet?
Andy McCarthy, former U.S. District Attorney, discussed this crazy story with Laura Ingraham. Who do we believe?
The media, in their eagerness to destroy Trump, have destroyed themselves.
