In Latest Transcript Release NY FBI Asst Dir Sweeney Tosses Comey Under Bus — And Has No Idea What Happened to Weiner Laptop
Guest post by Joe Hoft
The DOJ IG’s report related to the many lies made by former FBI Head Andrew McCabe was released in April 2018. (See report here)
We reported our summary of the report at the time. One key item included in the IG’s report was related to Anthony Weiner’s emails.
The Gateway Pundit reported:
The report includes little mention of Anthony Weiner’s laptop emails other than to mention that a meeting was scheduled to get a search warrant to request the emails on October 27th, 2016. The emails were the suspected cause for Comey’s email to Congress on October 28th, 2016, announcing that the Hillary email scandal was being reopened. However, per text messages between Strzok and Page, the FBI knew about the emails in September 2016 and had sent a team to New York to review the emails at that time. [The Weiner emails may be what the Democrats are most fearful of being released to the public.]
Some Internet sleuths put together some astounding implications from the McCabe report when put in context with events at the time and Weiner’s emails.
Anthony Weiner was sentenced to nearly 2 years in prison in September 2017 for sexting minors. The pervert was Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer’s protégé and is married to Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s closest aide during the 2016 Presidential campaign.
When NYPD investigated Weiner’s crime for texting minors sometime in and around 2016 they obtained his computer that at least one source said included up to 650,000 emails related to corruption, pay-for-play and more heinous crimes implicating a number of individuals including the Clintons and other liberal elites. It’s suspected that this was Weiner’s insurance in case he ever needed it. Instead it landed into the hands of the authorities as a result of him texting minors.
The IG Report and the Weiner Emails
As we reported last year, Andrew McCabe was made aware of Weiner’s emails in September 2016 but he sat on the emails for a month. After about a month there was either unrest within the FBI or the NYPD. Individuals who knew of Weiner’s emails are suspected of putting pressure on the FBI to look into the emails.
Then on October 24th, 2016, Obama’s corrupt AG Loretta Lynch inserted a new team on the Eric Garner case in New York. Garner was a black man who died under police custody. There were no indictments in the Garner case but somehow the Justice Department got involved.
According to the IG’s McCabe report, McCabe and AG Lynch held a call with New York:
McCabe told the OIG that during the October 2016 time frame, it was his “perception that there was a lot of information coming out of likely the [FBI’s] New York Field Office” that was ending up in the news. McCabe told the OIG that he “had some heated back-and-forths” with the New York Assistant Director in Charge (“NY-ADIC”) over the issue of media leaks.
On October 26, 2016, McCabe and NY-ADIC participated in what McCabe described as “a hastily convened conference call with the Attorney General who delivered the same message to us” about leaks, with specific focus being on leaks regarding the high-profile investigation by FBI’s New York Field Office into the death of Eric Garner. McCabe told us that he “never heard her use more forceful language.” NY-ADIC confirmed that the participants got “ripped by the AG on leaks.”
Note that McCabe held the call with AG Lynch that was “hastily convened” and McCabe said he never heard AG Lynch “use more forceful language”. Why did McCabe use the word “forceful”? What was she forcing? Also, how did anyone in New York know about McCabe’s leaks which had not yet even occurred at that time (October 30th)? The AG must have been referring to some other leaks.
On about the same day Trump supporter Rudy Giuliani was on FOX News noting that there were big campaign surprises coming out in the next few days.
Two days later on October 28th, 2016, crooked FBI Head James Comey sent a letter to Congress noting that they were re-opening the Hillary Clinton email investigation.
A few days later as reported at Breitbart on November 4th, 2016, Erik Prince, founder of Blackwater, was on Breitbart radio and he said shocking things about Weiner’s emails:
Prince claimed he had insider knowledge of the investigation that could help explain why FBI Director James Comey had to announce he was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s email server last week.
“Because of Weinergate and the sexting scandal, the NYPD started investigating it. Through a subpoena, through a warrant, they searched his laptop, and sure enough, found those 650,000 emails. They found way more stuff than just more information pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing,” Prince claimed.
“They found State Department emails. They found a lot of other really damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that Hillary went to this sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times,” he said.
“The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince explained.
“I believe – I know, and this is from a very well-placed source of mine at 1PP, One Police Plaza in New York – the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants and the additional arrests they were making in this investigation, and they’ve gotten huge pushback, to the point of coercion, from the Justice Department, with the Justice Department threatening to charge someone that had been unrelated in the accidental heart attack death of Eric Garner almost two years ago. That’s the level of pushback the Obama Justice Department is doing against actually seeking justice in the email and other related criminal matters,” Prince said.
Prince shared that the NYPD kept a copy of all the emails on Weiner’s computer, and the following:
Prince agreed, but said, “If people are willing to bend or break the law and don’t really care about the Constitution or due process – if you’re willing to use Stalinist tactics against someone – who knows what level of pressure” could be brought to bear against even the most tenacious law enforcement officials?
Prince also stated that Obama’s DOJ was trying to use the Garner investigation as leverage to shut down the investigation in New York into Weiner’s emails.
The IG’s McCabe report confirmed that AG Lynch did discuss the Garner case with New York and McCabe and she used ‘forceful’ language. It also confirms many of the statements Prince made just before the 2016 election.
On September 28, 2018, members of Congress interviewed FBI Assistant Director in Charge of the New York field office, William Sweeney.
When asked about leaks coming out of New York in and around October 25th and 26th of 2016, and whether the FBI conducted an investigation Sweeney denied FBI efforts to check for leaks regarding former Mayor Giuliani or the Weiner laptop:
Later in his testimony, Sweeney changes his story and admits that he did discuss leaks with former FBI Head Andrew McCabe and had perhaps more than two discussions with him about the leaks coming out of New York:
Sweeney also notes that a case agent put pressure on the FBI to review the Weiner emails but the FBI was reluctant to because of their limited search warrant. (Note we previously reported that the hero FBI case agent was John Robertson. Also, since sexting minors is a federal crime, it’s unknown why their search warrant needed to be updated.)
Sweeney then declines to answer definitely where the Weiner laptop currently is located –
Next Sweeney reveals that the FBI found emails from the case agent to himself regarding the case agents discussion with the DOJ (AUSA). Sweeney was not concerned that the case agent was making a complaint about the delay in reviewing the Weiner emails, but he was concerned that someone in the DOJ apparently tried to encourage the case agent not to raise this complaint. Sweeney says he had no idea a case agent was raising the issue about the delays.
Sweeney states that he shared with the IG that someone was possibly discouraging someone from whistleblowing but this is not highlighted in any IG report to date that we are aware of.
Next Sweeney basically calls FBI Agent Priestap a liar for saying that it normally takes a month to get a warrant to review a laptop –
Sweeney also throws fired FBI Director Comey under the bus for claiming that the FBI in New York was full of Hillary haters.
Sweeney also says Comey lied when he said that he first heard of Weiner’s emails in October 25, 2016, and insinuates he talked to Comey about these at an earlier date –
The Obama Administration’s corrupt FBI, DOJ and AG all were working to cover-up and stop an investigation into Anthony Weiner’s laptop emails before the 2016 election.
An individual or a group of individuals forced these crooks to open up the second Hillary email investigation in late October.
AG Lynch may have tried to use the Garner investigation to coerce individuals in New York to stop looking into Weiner’s emails.
All these Obama crooks were hoping for a Hillary win.
Fortunately President Trump won.
