Veteran FBI Agents Are Very Upset With James Comey

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The repercussions of James Comey’s decisions with regard to Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server will be felt for a long time, as least among FBI investigators who have worked hard to keep politics out of their investigations. The New York Post has several such disgruntled folks saying as much.

Feeling the heat from congressional critics, Comey last week argued that the case was investigated by career FBI agents, “So if I blew it, they blew it, too.”

But agents say Comey tied investigators’ hands by agreeing to unheard-of ground rules and other demands by the lawyers for Clinton and her aides that limited their investigation.

“In my 25 years with the bureau, I never had any ground rules in my interviews,” said retired agent Dennis V. Hughes, the first chief of the FBI’s computer investigations unit.

It doesn’t get any prettier either.

“The FBI has politicized itself, and its reputation will suffer for a long time,” Hughes said. “I hold Director Comey responsible.”

Agreed retired FBI agent Michael M. Biasello: “Comey has singlehandedly ruined the reputation of the organization.”

The accommodations afforded Clinton and her aides are “unprecedented,” Biasello added, “which is another way of saying this outcome was by design.” He called Comey’s decision not to seek charges “cowardly.”

The story goes on with others expressing similar sentiments. And it’s completely understandable that they’d feel this way. Every decision Comey made leading up to his decision to not recommend the case to federal prosecutors has been virtually unprecedented in the FBI’s history. The federal law enforcement agency has been made yet another political tool under the Obama administration, and if Hillary Clinton wins in November, then it will keep being used as such.

This is simply an outrage from start to finish, and no one will be able to hold Comey accountable.
