Loretta Lynch Is the most corrupt Attorney General of all time.

We need a special prosecutor – outside of the Department of Justice. The DoJ is an arm of our enemies, those who wish to destroy our system of governance.

Report: DOJ Told The FBI’s Clinton Foundation Investigators To ‘Stand Down’ By The Daily Caller, November 3, 2016:

Justice Department officials told FBI agents investigating the Clinton Foundation to “stand down” even though two confidential informants had provided information that agents believed was worth pursuing, The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday.

Fox News is also reporting that the investigation of the Clinton family charity is now a “very high priority” at the FBI. Multiple people have been interviewed multiple times during the investigation, which began last summer.

One of the main catalysts for the probe was the book “Clinton Cash,” written by Peter Schweizer, The Journal reports. Schweizer, the head of the Government Accountability Institute, has been interviewed by FBI agents “multiple times” about findings laid out in his book, which is highly critical of Bill and Hillary Clinton.

The newspaper laid out what appears to be an increasingly tense standoff between the FBI and Justice Department over the direction of the investigation. The rift has grown wider since Friday, when FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress stating that he was re-opening the investigation into Clinton’s private emails because of emails recovered from a laptop shared by Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband, Anthony Weiner.
According to The Journal, the FBI and DOJ had reached an agreement late last year to meet first before taking any major steps in the investigation. But the relationship began its decline in February.
Some DOJ and FBI officials believed that the case, which focuses on whether Clinton Foundation donors received favors from the Clinton State Department, lacks concrete evidence and should not move forward. But agents believe that senior-level officials at the DOJ and FBI are stymieing the investigation to protect Hillary Clinton.

In February, FBI officials, prosecutors with the public integrity unit and the head of DOJ’s criminal division, met in Washington to discuss the case. But after FBI agents offered a presentation of evidence, the public integrity prosecutors believed that the case was weak. After that meeting, DOJ officials told investigators at the several offices with open files on the Clinton Foundation — Washington, New York, Little Rock and Los Angeles — to “stand down,” a source told The Journal.

While “Clinton Cash” was a catalyst for the investigation, some FBI agents believed that the case had advanced well past the book.

That additional evidence included details culled from at least two confidential informants and a secret recording of a suspect in a public corruption case.

While agents who listened to the recordings were not sure of the accuracy of the statements, they believed the lead was worth pursuing, sources told The Journal. But DOJ prosecutors believed that the new evidence did not merit advanced investigative tools such as the use of a grand jury. The suspect who was recorded did not work for the Clinton Foundation.

DOJ officials continued to push back against the investigation. They became “more annoyed” as FBI agents continued to investigate. The agents became more frustrated with the DOJ’s top brass.

Robert Capers, the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, told DOJ officials at the national office in Washington D.C. that FBI agents working the case in New York “won’t let it go.”

Those conflicting views of the case sparked an Aug. 12 phone call from a senior DOJ official to Andrew McCabe, the FBI’s deputy director. The DOJ official reportedly told McCabe that FBI agents were ignoring instructions to back off the case.

“Are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?” McCabe reportedly said in the heated conversation.

“Of course not,” the official replied.

According to Fox News, the investigation is picking up steam.

“There is an avalanche of new information coming in every day,” one law enforcement source told Fox. Investigators are drawing evidence from WikiLeaks as well as new emails recovered from the Abedin-Weiner laptop.

    Vince Foster was killed in 1983.

    The Cubans and the Russians began running submarines in the Rim Canal of Lake Okeechobee. They also built bunkers as they murdered off Americans English speakers in Miami in exchange for the Cocaine gold. Vince Foster came to South Florida with Hillary and Pelosi in response to my report of these mini-subs. Being the total corrupt idiots that they are, they began playing games and Vince Foster ended up dead. Hillary and Pelosi panicked and Foster’s body was carried outside to his car and my gun was placed in his hands to frame me. The investigator is none other than Mike Volin who is also the birth certificate investigator. Come on, people, it ain’t rocket science here!

    Why is it that Mike Volin can never seem to solve any of the cases that he’s on? I was also raped by Bill Clinton who loves to bite while he’s committing his acts of violence! These people are just so damned careless with classified info and it’s a wonder we’re not already bowing down to a foreign king! These subs were from the early 80′s, folks. It CAN happen overnight if these hidden Russian ops make their final move!!

    Crooked politicians need contract killers to keep their cocaine supply running. You don’t kill your kings. They guesstimated that cocaine would be legalized on day and that, in the end, none of this would matter. But, at the same time they really don’t want to give up control so they kill off any of their competitors. Again, you need people like me to make that happen. They control with threats of death or imprisonment which is what happened to me with Mike Volin AFTER I earned a degree in Journalism from Palm Beach Community College.

    Bill was not there at the 1983 Vince Foster murder. I know some of the wound markings on the REAL Vince Foster. I know that his blood ran to his back. But, that his body was propped upright in his car. I know that he has a bite mark and a knife cut on his leg about the size of a small steak. Nancy (notice the repeating of the name NANCY during the 80′s both high and low) Pelosi rightfully guessed that no investigator would be convinced that his body in his car was the scene of the murder and, I suspect, that’s why Mike Volin, a heroine user and a cop, did the investigation as the “first” one on the scene.

    I called Chaffetz office yesterday and a “princess” answered. She said she found my info “offensive” and didn’t want to hear anymore. Wow!
