REPORT: FBI Renegades ‘Hostile To Hillary’, Comey No Longer In Control

The FBI Director’s bombshell just days before the election raised questions about his motives and drew criticism from some over his timing. James Comey disclosed that the FBI was looking at new emails as part of a probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state. The FBI normally does not comment on ongoing inquiries. But Comey feared leaks from rogue agents, several news outlets reported.

It seems the FBI is in the midst of various internal disputes and turf wars, largely tied to various investigations of the Clintons or attempts to start investigations of the Clintons. That alone paints a picture of Director James Comey as having totally lost control of the organization.

Law enforcement sources familiar with the FBI’s New York Field Office, which initially discovered the emails, said a faction of investigators based in the office is known to be hostile to Hillary Clinton. Such a faction is likely responsible for a recent surge in media leaks on alleged details of an ongoing FBI investigation of the Clinton Foundation, they said. A spokeswoman for the FBI’s New York office said she had no knowledge about this.

As WSJ’s Devlin Barrett wrote: “Much of the skepticism toward the case came from how it started—with the publication of a book suggesting possible financial misconduct and self-dealing surrounding the Clinton charity. The author of that book, Peter Schweitzer, a former speechwriting for President George W. Bush, was interviewed multiple times by FBI agents, sources familiar with the matter said.

According to Barret, FBI agents interviewed Schweitzer multiple times about his investigation —big red flag right there. They then obtained recordings of a suspect in an unrelated public corruption case who talked about “alleged deals the Clintons made.”

But here’s where things get really disturbing: Schweitzer is not only a former Bush-era operative, the book was funded by Steve Bannon’s Breitbart media. Yes, Bannon, who ran Breitbart News and is now on leave to run the Trump campaign.
