“TICK TOCK”: Hannity Warns of Another Bombshell As Details Emerge Top FBI Official Granted Clinton Email Probe “Special” Status
Fox News host Sean Hannity is on the front lines in the fight against the mainstream media’s blatant effort to ignore scandal after scandal surrounding Hillary Clinton.
On Wednesday evening, Hannity teased yet another bombshell by tweeting a new report by The Hill‘s John Solomon about FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe writing an email in which he revealed the Clinton email investigation had been given “special” status.
The Hill reports:
McCabe’s Oct. 23, 2016, email to press officials in the FBI said the probe was under the control of a small group of high-ranking people at the FBI’s headquarters in Washington.
“As I now know the decision was made to investigate it at HQ with a small team,” McCabe wrote in the email. He said he had no input when the Clinton email investigation started in summer 2015, while he was serving as assistant director in charge of the FBI’s Washington office.
“[The Washington office] provided some personnel for the effort but it was referred to as a ‘special’ and I was not given any details about it,” he wrote.
According to The Hill, the FBI refuses to clarify what McCabe meant by labeling the Clinton probe “special”
“We don’t have anything to add to the documents that were released,” FBI spokeswoman Carol Cratty told The Hill.
On Wednesday, the FBI released more than 70 pages of emails on its public records website known as The Vault.
The McCabe email is among the newly released documents.
Recently released documents show former FBI head James Comey exonerated Hillary Clinton before the investigation into her email conduct had concluded. Even more concerning is “Mr. Comey even circulated an early draft statement to select members of senior FBI leadership,” reports Townhall.
“According to the unredacted portions of the transcripts, it appears that in April or early May of 2016, Mr. Comey had already decided he would issue a statement exonerating Secretary Clinton. That was long before FBI agents finished their work. Mr. Comey even circulated an early draft statement to select members of senior FBI leadership. The outcome of an investigation should not be prejudged while FBI agents are still hard at work trying to gather the facts,” the letter, signed by Chairman Chuck Grassley and Committee member Lindsey Graham states. “Conclusion first, fact-gathering second—that’s no way to run an investigation. The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy.”
In addition to tweeting out Solomon’s piece with the phrase “Tick tock,” Hannity also posted a second piece from The Hill titled “Congressional investigators make first evidence requests in Russia nuclear bribery case.”
The Hill reports:
Republican House and Senate investigators on Wednesday launched their effort to secure evidence from federal agencies about an Obama-era Russian corruption case as lawmakers prepare to interview a former undercover informant who helped the FBI chronicle bribery, kickbacks and money laundering inside Moscow’s nuclear industry.
In letters to the FBI, Justice Department, Treasury Department and intelligence agencies, the congressional investigators demanded to know whether the evidence the FBI gathered starting in 2009 against figures inside Rosatom was circulated to government agencies before the Obama administration made a series of favorable decisions between 2010 and 2012 benefitting the Russian nuclear firm.
