An FBI agent who quit his top position over the bureau’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation is heading to Congress to testify.
According to The Hill, John Giacalone, who led the Clinton investigation for the first seven months, will reportedly expose former President Barack Obama and fired FBI Director James Comey for allowing Clinton to skirt charges.
The joint investigation, which is being led by Republican Reps. Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Trey Gowdy of South Carolina, have laid the groundwork for Congress to finally hold the failed Democratic presidential nominee accountable for breaking the law.
Judiciary & Oversight has scheduled 3 witness interviews for June:
Bill Priestap, assistant director of FBI’s counterintelligence division, Michael Steinbach, former head of FBI’s national security division, & John Giacalone, retired FBI Senior Agent. https://t.co/Qaqiw2DaZv

In addition to Giacalone, Bill Priestap, assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division and Michael Steinbach, the former chief of the FBI’s national security department and the individual who succeeded Giacalone, will also testify.
All three men served in top positions at the FBI and were deeply connected to the Clinton email investigation. However, the real headliner here is Giacalone for his proximity to Comey and others involved in the decision to let Clinton evade charges.
Comey admitted in mid-2016 that dozens of classified materials and documents were sent and received by Clinton on her private email server, which was hidden in the basement of her home.
That’s illegal, and Comey admitted she broke the law. She then acid washed and used Bleachbit to wipe her server clean after she received a subpoena from Congress to preserve the materials. That’s also a felony.
Why wasn’t she charged? Why wasn’t a grand jury impaneled? Why were there no indictments for her cronies and allies who also mishandled classified information and used hammers to destroy evidence?
Giacalone was reportedly so stunned and upset by Comey’s decision to allow Clinton to get away with her crimes that he quit the bureau after nearly two dozens years of service to the country.
Interesting, looks like they are preparing to peel back the curtain. The rumor is that John Giacalone was pushed into retiring because he wanted to do a serious investigation of Hillary's emails. Bill Priestap was circled by the FBI conspirators. https://t.co/TbzWtyETuf

It’s unclear why Comey admitted Clinton broke the law and then gave her a huge pass for her corrupt actions. Was Comey advised by Obama to let Clinton go because they believed she would win the presidency?
Would a Clinton indictment expose that Obama could have been calling the shots behind the scenes?
This could be the tip of the iceberg that exposes how far Obama, Comey, and others went to protect Clinton during the election.
