• Engaged in "unprofessional conduct";
• Committed security violations related to the use of personal email for FBI business;
• Committed misconduct regarding a judical proceeding by failing to investigate obvious leads in the Clinton email scandal
The OPR's 27-page response contains several interesting revelations, few of which have been publicized thanks to our Democrat Party media, which has spent three solid years trying to overturn the results of the 2016 election.
Strzok and Hillary Clinton's never-before-seen emailsOne of the most egregious activities Strzok appears to have engaged in is trying to sit on all of the missing Clinton emails, three months of which had never been seen before by government investigators. The Weiner/Abedin laptop seems to have contained most of the missing emails, which Hillary aide Huma Abedin had forwarded to the laptop she shared with ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner.
Furthermore, the Clinton emails recovered from the Weiner-Abedin laptop only came to light because an FBI field agent in the New York office -- a heroic individual, it seems -- was concerned that the Strzok team was stalling. Recovered in late September, Strzok ignored the agent's revelations, almost certainly hoping that he could get to the election and a Hillary victory, after which concerns with problematic emails would be rendered moot.
The Suspicious Decisions of Comey and/or McCabe Highlighted"The investigation revealed that [Comey] and/or [McCabe] inexplicably assigned the same people to the FBI's two most significant investigations at the time, Clinton Email and Russia. This, in turn, meant the people were spread too thin and unable to focus the necessary time and energy needed for proper follow-up investigation on Clinton email."
Did Comey Blatantly Lie to Congress About Hillary's Emails?After notifying Congress of the newly discovered emails (just days before the election, not about a month or so), Comey then apparently lied to Congress about his review of the documents.
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.But the DOJ's response to Strzok obliterates Comey's claims. Not only did Strzok fail to review the Clinton/Abedin emails, but the Strzok team violated a federally mandated 'damage assessment' directive, which required referral of "...the matter to U.S. intelligence agencies to determine if national security had been compromised..."
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.
Comey later told 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.
This seems to be just another example of perjury before Congress, a charge which -- for example -- Roger Stone was found guilty, resulting in a possible prison sentence of 50 years.
I'll believe there's equal justice when the Obama-era FBI leadership team are cuffed up.
