FBI Played Trick on Clinton During Email Probe, Newly Released Documents Show

ABC News is reporting this concerning the one email with the (C) portion marking.

"the paragraphs were not properly marked, lacking a header or footer indicating they contained classified information. But before their interview with Clinton, FBI agents placed the appropriate header on one of the emails to see how she would respond.

When confronted with the altered document, Clinton recognized the header and footer as indicating the presence of classified information, but she didnít connect them to the ď(C)Ē marking and said she didnít think the emailís content was in fact classified. She questioned why it was marked as such, according to the FBI summary."

Comey tried to set her up.

2. wow....thanks! CNN hit her HARD on exactly this point, neglecting

 

to mention the key aspect of the story

amazing! they've been devoting at least ten minutes of every half hour to this story today, starting at 5PM, til 7:30

total media complicity

just another rehash of Bush/Gore, Bush/Kerry, not to mention the Whitewater Inquisition, in which Comey played a MAJOR role. he's been after her ever since

come November ninth, he MUST be fired! if not, should Hillary win, she should send him a letter that day, saying he has three months to prepare a nice little resignation letter, and have it sitting on her oval office desk January 20, 2017

6. they have been absolutely relentless in their multi-pronged attack

 

on the trustworthy narrative, focusing mainly on CGI and the emails. I can't believe I subject myself to it. time for a break soon. they NEVER present any sort of defense to her position, without sneering at it, or scoffing at the possibility that their version of the tale is mostly a bunch of fabricated garbage served to them by the trump campaign or their behind the scenes toadies. they refuse to brook the possibility of a reasonable explanation, and go so far as to MAKE UP shit, or leave it out (like Comey's walk back of his ludicrous non-indictment accusations before Chaffetz, etal), in order to further the narrative.

today, their "chief investigative reporter, some jagoff named Jim, I think," went so far as to claim the classified discussions of drone strikes were the WORST of her transgressions, even though they were in the NEWS, and widely discussed in PUBLIC before they were retroactively classified, like about 1000 of her supposedly 2000 classified emails! it's all part of the ridiculous situation involving gross overclassification of even the most inane minutiae:

11. That doesn't make any sense...

 

If Comey wanted to derail the Clinton candidacy, all he had to do was recommend charges after his long list of infractions a month or so ago.

The DoJ wouldn't have had to accept his recommendation, if they did they wouldn't have had to win.

That could have been the one thing to really mess with the Clinton campaign.

He chose not to..

He is the director of the FBI.

What do you think would have restrained him if his goal was to go after the Clintons?

It was only a recommendation and the DoJ would have been up next.

15. Recommendation based on what?

 

generally you have to say I recomend this action based on exhibit x. Do you not? Would that not have been the first question asked?

I mean I agree the words could have come out of his mouth but then what? If his goal was to go after the clintons and he pulled a stunt like recommending a case against her he would have been uncovered pretty quickly no?

I mean if he wanted to end his career in disgrace sure he could have but he would have to be an idiot to do so based on what he had.

20. None of those infractions warranted an investigation

 

they were rule violations at best and not criminal violations. I disagree I think it is pretty clear cut.

21. That's the point...

 

You think that as a Clinton supporter but an objective person or a Clinton opponent could just as easily make the case the other way.

In short, the choice was his and he made the one that kept the one actual bomb from exploding.

Hillary Clinton should send him whiskey and a masseuse... ...

32. "No reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case."

Those are Comey's words. Your assertion that an objective person could "easily make the case the other way" doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

Comey knew there was no case, so he tried to trick Clinton into incriminating herself during the interview. When that didn't work, he broke protocol and made his very damaging statement to the press. If Republicans had not overplayed their hand by calling him in for testimony, we wouldn't have known the extent to which he had manipulated the situation.

Your claim that Comey did Clinton a favor is at odds with the facts. He went out of his way to damage the subject of an investigation who had been exonerated by the facts.

Neither a Clinton supporter nor an objective person could "make the case the other way." Only an opponent would try, and it wouldn't be easy.

Your assertion that Clinton should send him whiskey and a masseuse is frankly disgusting. Comey owed her a fair investigation and a brief statement that no charges would be brought. Instead, Comey slandered her with misleading innuendo. And you want her to thank him like some grateful little lady who should know her place.

16. you haven't been following this very closely, have you? otherwise

 

you wouldn't have asked that question

the answer to why it was only a recommendation is more than obvious, yet you don't appear to be up to speed on this aspect of the 'scandal'

interesting

7. he was appointed by bush, then allowed to carry over after his

 

first ten year term expired

Obama really fucked up with his fucked up repug appointments

can't figure out why he does that stupid stuff

EDIT: wrong-O! he was actually appointed by Obama, replacing Robert Mueller, who was appointed by bush, then reappointed by Obama in 2011, then replaced by comey two years later

Meuller, another pug ahole, was just as bad as comey, and probably more corrupt, having a role inp covering up the massive BCCI scandal, one in which John Kerry's investigation was thwarted at every turn by creeps like Mueller, who was rewarded for his corruption by being named head of the FBI!

he should have cleaned house as soon as he took office and got rid of all the bush trash, including federal judges.

12. agreed, but he couldn't do anything about the judges...only way

 

to get rid of them is by impeachment or jailing them on conviction of some sort of crime, like perjury, which they could've gotten Clarence Thomas on, back when he lied his ass off during his confirmation hearings

thanks a lot, Biden

because they were too liberal & got away with it. Would like to see Obama do the same to the Bush replacements

Where was this kind of traction, really any kind of traction, about the Bush/Cheney cabal not finding tons if emails, saying they were "accidentally erased"? As if it were really accidental.
