FBI May "Leak" Clinton Email Probe If DOJ Blocking Continues

Tyler Durden's picture

The feud between the FBI and the Department of Justice over whether or not to proceed with charges against Hillary Clinton in the ongoing email investigation just took an unexpected turn.

Recall that one month ago, we found out that on one hand, the FBI is seemingly hell-bent on chasing down every possible angle involving Hillary's email abuse, when we reported that one hundred forty-seven FBI agents have been deployed to chase down clues and leads and that the FBI has accelerated the investigation because officials want to avoid the possibility of announcing any action too close to the election. A former Clinton staffer is also cooperating with that investigation, and it’s believed Clinton herself will be questioned.

The flipside has been the Department of Justice which has been stonewalling the probe every step of the way. It hasn't been alone in its unwillingness to pursue Hillary: on April 1, the state department announced that it is suspending its probe of "top secret" Clinton emails.

The divergence of these two paths, one which wants to get to the bottom of Hillary's email probe and the other which is dead set on blocking it, has led online betting markets such as PredictIt to put the the odds of federal charges being filed against Hillary at record lows.

 

Which, paradoxically, could be bad news for Hillary.

On Friday, US Senator Chuck Grassley who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, and who has pushed for additional scrutiny of Clinton’s email use during her tenure as secretary of state, dropped a dramatic "hint" during a breakfast meeting with the Des Moines A.M. Rotary club when he suggested that the FBI "might leak", hypothetically-speaking of course, reports of its investigation into presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state.

In practically laying out the next steps in Hillarygate, Grassley said "an anonymous and unauthorized release of FBI investigative materials could result if officials at the agency believed prosecution of Clinton was stymied for political reasons" according to the Des Moines register.

“Is there going to be political interference? If there’s enough evidence to prosecute, will there be political interference?” Grassley wondered aloud on Friday. "And if there’s political interference, then I assume that somebody in the FBI is going to leak these reports and it’s either going to have an effect politically or it’s going to lead to prosecution if there’s enough evidence."

The senior senator’s musing came in response to a long answer to a very general question from one of the Rotarians about the status on inquiries into the email server and Clinton’s handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on a diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.

Which, of course, would be potentially devastating for Hillary as not only would her misdeed as chronicled by the Feds be fully in the open and ammo for any of her competitors in the presidential race, but would also confirm that the Department of Justice is anything but, and has led to such a dramatic perversion of the law as being forced to leak evidence of criminality in the public arena just so the population can be made aware of Hillary's actions.

As for Grassley's unorthodox "suggestion", when asked by Radio Iowa reporter O. Kay Henderson after the breakfast if he was suggesting the FBI should leak investigative findings, Grassley expounded on his comment.

"I wouldn’t be encouraging it because if it’s a violation of law, I can’t be encouraging a violation of law," he said. "This is kind of my own opinion, this is something I’ve heard."

Yes, Chuck, we get it. And now we wonder how long before a treasure trove of "leaked" FBI documents exposing the full extent of Hillary's action is leaked, although we can't help but wonder that just like the Panama Papers dump, the media will be prepared and will promptly redirect the public's attention to Vladimir Putin once again as the guilty party behind it all.

Indict, or provide irrefutable public evidence that federal LE is political and not about LE at all, and that all you guys care about is your careers.

I wonder what problems will result when a majority of people realize that the US is no longer a nation of laws, and that they're being 'ruled' over by a known criminal dictator?

Well, considering 60 percent of "americans" have maybe a 6th grade education, another 25% are on the dole, that leaves only a handful of us to do anything. Not only will we be fighting the feds, we will be fighting the low IQ idiots that we are trying to help. 

But , as you say we are no longer a nation of laws, that leaves only one thing to do to protect ourselves. And to all you DHS, FBI, etc... ot there.... just make sure your on the right side when the action starts.

If DOJ does nothing it will get leaked. We might never know where it came from but you can bet the FBI isn't too happy about DOJ sitting on an indictment.

As for the state department dropping their investigation, I could give a rats ass, you people don't have your shit together anyway, seems anyone in the DOS can do what they want. FU

Seems like criminal government is problem, law enforcement wants money not justice

Yes We Can. But Lets Not.'s picture

As a U.S. citizen, I encourage Director Comey to leak, put it all out there, as the goon-ridden Obama administration is obviously corrupt and thus cannot in any case be trusted.  If leaking is breaking the law, it is done in support of the rule of law.

Let 'er fly, Director.  For the good of America, for our futures.  Please.

Those FBI guys better be careful and heed the lesson dealt to FBI Deputy Dir. John O'Neill when he decided to break ranks and go after an international criminal.

It wont be leaked and she wont be indicted, this information is worth FAR more as blackmail once shes elected. If not elected then indicted. The FBI was started by Hoover, remember??

ANYTHING from SITE Intelligence group is propaganda commissioned by US Gov as was legaized in the 2013 NDAA which repealed Smith-Mundt act of 1948 which had outlawed direct propagandization of the American public. Look it up yourself if you dont believe me.

we shouldn't rely on the military to protect us when TSHTF. need to find out right now where the heavy mortars, heavy machine guns, tac nukes (cause they'll use them against us), etc are. then, lots need to resolve to throw (sacrifice) bodies at the tyranny until the tide is turned.

if this country turns into a lawless state by the obama/media cabal there'll be no other choice but succumb or fight (Civil War grade).

SWRichmond's picture

I will tell you flat out that NONE of these sociopaths anywhere near the top are willing themselves to fight anyone for anything. NYC proved that the cops will go into self-preservation mode at the first sign of actual trouble. The resistance is so dispersed that there will be no nuking, etc. No US military personnel would deploy a nuke domestically. I frankly doubt the politicians would even be willing to deploy troops to suppress domestic violence, as IMO there is a high probability that such an act would result in an outcome quite different than they had hoped. WE control the terrain, WE occupy it, not the politicians.

Who will risk their lives fighting for the politicians?  Can anyone think of anyone who would?

Dolar in a vortex's picture

Yeah, the entire flag rank of officers who remain in Obama's military.

They risk nothing except the lives of those they order to attack.
