Obama Inspector General Reveals How a Stunned James Clapper Led to Deep State Cover Up of Hillary’s Email Scandal
On Monday evening, former Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough III told Fox News’ Catherine Herridge that the Clinton campaign warned it would fire him after discovering evidence of “top secret,” emails passing through Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
“There was personal blowback. Personal blowback to me, to my family, to my office,” McCullough III told Fox News.
McCullough told Fox News that then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper was briefed on the findings and in turn was told by officials to keep the intelligence official out of the matter.

Fox News reports:
..[T]he former inspector general, with responsibility for the 17 intelligence agencies, said the executive who recommended him to the Obama administration for the job – then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper – was also disturbed by the independent Clinton email findings.
“[Clapper] said, ‘This is extremely reckless.’ And he mentioned something about — the campaign … will have heartburn about that,” McCullough said.
He said Clapper’s Clinton email comments came during an in-person meeting about a year before the presidential election – in late December 2015 or early 2016. “[Clapper] was as off-put as the rest of us were.”
After the Clapper meeting, McCullough said his team was marginalized. “I was told by senior officials to keep [Clapper] out of it,” he said, while acknowledging he tried to keep his boss in the loop.
Despite concrete evidence of Clinton’s breaking the law, Clapper was shielded from the investigation. The former CIA director could have helped get the FBI’s house in order by briefing bureau officials on the seriousness of the evidence — but instead, did nothing.
Clapper’s silence on the evidence he was presented more than suggests he is complicit in covering up Clinton’s wrongdoings.
From the very start, the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email use was flawed. As Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft reported last Friday, Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) told Fox and Friends that Congress now has evidence Crooked cop James Comey and his FBI did not follow normal standards and gave Hillary Clinton “special status” in their investigation.
Gaetz told Fox News, “We now have evidence that the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton did not follow normal and standard procedures. The current deputy director of the FBI Andrew McCabe sent emails just weeks before the presidential election saying that the Hillary Clinton investigation would be special — that it would be handled by a small team at headquarters, that it would be given special status.”
