During a radio interview with John Catsimatidis, former assistant FBI director James Kallstrom heaped praise on Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump before slamming the Clintons. Kallstrom, known for leading the investigation into the explosion of TWA flight 800 in the late '90s, said on Sunday that Bill and Hillary Clinton are part of a “crime family” and argued top officials hindered the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server while she was secretary of State. He also accused Hillary Clinton of being a “pathological liar.”
“The Clintons, that’s a crime family. It’s like organized crime, basically. The Clinton Foundation is a cesspool." Kallstrom added that “It’s just outrageous how Hillary Clinton sold her office for money. And she’s a pathological liar, and she’s always been a liar. And God forbid if we put someone like that in the White House."
Going off on a tear, Kallstrom also blasted Attorney General Loretta Lynch, claiming that she impeded the investigation into Clinton’s private server.
“The problem here is this investigation was never a real investigation,” he said. “That’s the problem. They never had a grand jury empanelled, and the reason they never had a grand jury empanelled, I’m sure, is Loretta Lynch would not go along with that.”
The ex-FBI official, who praised Donald Trump as a “good human being” and “patriot,” also went after his former employer. “This investigation was never a real investigation,” he said.
“They never had grand jury empaneled. And the reason … was that Loretta Lynch would not go along with that. So this investigation was without the ability to serve subpoenas, serve search warrants, and obtain the evidence that they ended up begging for. It was just ludicrous what went on,” he added.
Kallstrom said that the FBI “left so much stuff on the table,” but he defended the agents on the case. “This is not the FBI agents who’s to blame for this fiasco going on. This is the leadership. This is Jim Comey … The agents are furious with what’s going on. I know that for a fact,” he said.

Kallstrom's bashing of the Clinton's followed another interview he gave last night with Judge Jeanine PIrro to discuss the latest announced FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton, in which he said "I think there’s something happening. People are asking me what is this about. I think something big is going to happen. I don’t know what it is. It’s just my gut feeling. I think so.
Judge Jeanine: So he wouldn’t have come out unless he knew it was coming out?
James Kallstrom: Well, I think he couldn’t hold onto it any longer. OK. Because who knows? Maybe the locals would have stepped in on this.
Judge Jeanine: …I think he had to do it.
