SPERRY: FBI Only Read 3,000 Out of 700,000 Emails Found on Weiner Laptop – Contradicting Comey’s Sworn Testimony (VIDEO)
Investigative reporter Paul Sperry dropped another bombshell this week.
James Comey sent a letter to the House Oversight Committee on October 28th 2016 stating the FBI reopened the Hillary email investigation after they found Clinton’s State Department emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
Hundreds of thousands of emails were found on Weiner’s laptop yet the FBI closed the investigation after a few days claiming they magically read through all the emails.
Former FBI Director James Comey previously told Congress the FBI examined all 700,000 emails found on Weiner’s laptop–it turns out that the FBI only examined approximately 3,000 out of 700,000 emails.
Just how did the FBI magically read 700,000 emails in a matter of days? Comey told Congress “thanks to the wizardry of our technology,” the FBI was able to delete the majority of messages as “duplicates” of emails they had already examined. FBI agents then toiled “night after night after night” to examine the remaining emails.
Evidence to the contrary…
Paul Sperry via Real Clear Investigations:
In fact, a technical glitch prevented FBI technicians from accurately comparing the new emails with the old emails. Only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.
“Most of the emails were never examined, even though they made up potentially 10 times the evidence” of what was reviewed in the original year-long case that Comey closed in July 2016, said a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation.
Yet even the “extremely narrow” search that was finally conducted, after more than a month of delay, uncovered more classified material sent and/or received by Clinton through her unauthorized basement server, the official said. Contradicting Comey’s testimony, this included highly sensitive information dealing with Israel and the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas. The former secretary of state, however, was never confronted with the sensitive new information and it was never analyzed for damage to national security.
Even though the unique classified material was improperly stored and transmitted on an unsecured device, the FBI did not refer the matter to U.S. intelligence agencies to determine if national security had been compromised, as required under a federally mandated “damage assessment” directive.
The newly discovered classified material “was never previously sent out to the relevant original classification authorities for security review,” the official, who spoke to RealClearInvestigations on the condition of anonymity, said.
Other key parts of the investigation remained open when the embattled director announced to Congress he was buttoning the case back up for good just ahead of Election Day.
One career FBI special agent involved in the case complained to New York colleagues that officials in Washington tried to “bury” the new trove of evidence, which he believed contained the full archive of Clinton’s emails — including long-sought missing messages from her first months at the State Department.
Thursday evening, Paul Sperry appeared on FOX News Ingraham Angle and spoke to former Congressman Jason Chaffetz, who was filling in for Laura Ingraham.
Chaffettz is also the former Chairman of the House Oversight Committee so he remembers receiving this letter from Comey regarding Hillary’s State Department emails found on Weiner’s laptop.

Thanks to Judicial Watch, we know at least 18 emails found on Weiner’s laptop contained classified information including the name of a CIA official.
AG Sessions is a disgrace. A year and a half into Trump’s presidency and Hillary Clinton’s countless crimes have gone unpunished.
