IG Report Reveals Comey, Witnesses Said Clinton’s ‘High-Powered’ Lawyers ‘Intimidated’ Them

Fired FBI Director James Comey and other bureau officials told the Department of Justice that Hillary Clinton’s “high-powered” legal team “intimidated” them during the investigation into Clinton’s private email server.

According to The Daily Caller, the bombshell admission was part of the 500-page report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz. The report details how the FBI handled the investigation regarding Clinton’s illegal use of a private server.

Here’s what the IG report states:

“Comey, Baker, and other FBI witnesses told us that they believed the prosecutors were overly cautious about obtaining the laptops because they were intimidated by high-powered defense counsel like [Beth] Wilkinson.”

Ironically enough, the IG report also states that Peter Strzok and Lisa Page told DOJ investigators that Clinton’s legal team tried to intimidate and pressure them to drop the probe and not recommend any charges against Clinton.

She deleted 33,000 emails, used Bleachbit to acid wash her server, and sent and received hundreds of classified documents on her unsecured email server — she was apparently intimidating top federal agents to avoid being charged, and one could argue it worked.

Here’s what the IG report reveals:

“Some FBI witnesses told us, consistent with text message exchanges between [Peter] Strzok and [Lisa] Page, that the FBI was concerned that the line [Network Security Division] prosecutors were intimidated by the high-powered attorneys representing Clinton and her senior aides and, as a result, did not negotiate aggressively with them.”

“Strzok told us that Prosecutor 1, who handled most of the negotiations with counsel, is ‘extraordinarily competent,’ but he believed more senior government officials should have been involved with deciding ‘how hard [to] push counsel.’”

Strzok served as the No. 2 counterintelligence analyst at the FBI before being demoted last year and fired from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s team after an internal probe found that he had sent hundreds of anti-Trump text messages to Page, a former lawyer at the FBI with whom he was having an affair. Page abruptly resigned earlier this month amid the numerous allegations against her.

Consider how ironic and utterly insane that is. Many are not surprised at all that Clinton would use her goons to threaten and intimidate people.

But Strzok and Page were doing everything imaginable to help Clinton, so imagine how stunned they must have been when they were threatened by the people they were trying to help win an election.

Here’s the cherry on top: former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates both claimed they weren’t aware the Clinton legal team was intimidating DOJ investigators and lawyers.

Lynch, of course, is the same official who was too busy meeting with Bill Clinton on a private tarmac one week before Hillary Clinton was cleared of all charges.

And Yates was fired in early 2017 for refusing to enact Trump’s travel ban, an attempt to pull a publicly stunt to show she was part of the #Resistance.

Clinton’s team intimidating and threatening DOJ lawyers isn’t a surprise, nor would it be hard to believe that Yates and Lynch likely covered it up so Clinton could skirt charges.

They almost got away with it all, but Trump winning the election forced all of this into the public square.
