FBI agent Peter Strzok was more than just an innocent agent who
simply didn’t care for presidential candidate Donald J. Trump,
he was clearly involved in a plan to ensure Hillary Clinton’s
reputation wasn’t damaged by the classified emails found on the
laptop of disgraced former Congressman and pedophile, Anthony
Weiner, who also happened to be married to Hillary Clinton’s
most trusted aide, Huma Abedin.
Clear Investigations– When then-FBI
Director James Comey announced he was closing the Hillary
Clinton email investigation for a second time just days before
the 2016 election, he certified to Congress that his agency had
“reviewed all of the communications” discovered on a personal
laptop used by Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, and her
husband, Anthony Weiner.
At the time,
many wondered how investigators managed over the course of one
week to read the “hundreds of thousands” of emails residing on
the machine, which had been a focus of a sex-crimes
investigation of Weiner, a former Congressman.

details of the Hillary Clinton email scandal to Fox News
analyst, Jason Chaffetz, the former Chairman of the House
"Comey told Congress that they had reviewed all of the Clinton
emails, hundreds of thousands, that were found on the Weiner
laptop. That was not true. They barely looked at any of them.

Congress that “thanks to the wizardry of our
technology,” the FBI was able to eliminate the vast majority of
messages as “duplicates” of emails they’d previously seen.
Tireless agents, he claimed, then worked “night after night
after night” to scrutinize the remaining material.

In fact, a
technical glitch prevented FBI technicians from accurately
comparing the new emails with the old emails. Only 3,077 of the
694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or
incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that
work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again
cleared Clinton of criminal charges.

together the FBI’s handling of the massive new email discovery
from the “Weiner laptop.” This months-long investigation
included a review of federal court records and affidavits, cell
phone text messages, and emails sent by key FBI personnel, along
with internal bureau memos, reviews and meeting notes documented
in government reports. Information also was gleaned through
interviews with FBI agents and supervisors, prosecutors, and
other law enforcement officials, as well as congressional
investigators and public-interest lawyers.
If the FBI
“soft-pedaled” the original investigation of Clinton’s emails,
as some critics have said, it out-and-out suppressed the
follow-up probe related to the laptop, sources for this article
“There was no
real investigation and no real search,” said Michael Biasello, a
27-year veteran of the FBI. “It was all just show — eyewash — to
make it look like there was an investigation before the
FBI’s New York office first pointed headquarters to the large
new volume of evidence on Sept. 28, 2016, supervising agent
Peter Strzok, who was fired on Aug. 10 for sending anti-Trump
texts and other misconduct, did not try to obtain a warrant to
search the huge cache of emails until Oct. 30, 2016. Violating
department policy, he edited the warrant affidavit on his home
email account, bypassing the FBI system for recording such
government business. He also began drafting a second exoneration
statement before conducting the search.
warrant was so limited in scope that it excluded more than half
the emails New York agents considered relevant to the case. The
cache of Clinton-Abedin communications dated back to 2007. But
the warrant to search the laptop excluded any messages exchanged
before or after Clinton’s 2009-2013 tenure as secretary of
state, key early periods when Clinton initially set up her
unauthorized private server and later periods when she deleted
thousands of emails sought by investigators.
investigating and clearing Abedin and Weiner, the FBI did not
interview them, according to other FBI sources who say Comey
closed the case prematurely. The machine was not authorized for
classified material, and Weiner did not have classified security
clearance to receive such information, which he did on at least
two occasions through his Yahoo! email account – which he also
used to email snapshots of his penis.
