(National Sentinel)Â Clinton Scandals: A Republican congressman said Friday that “we now have evidence” of FBI malfeasance in the investigation of then-Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton’s improper use of a private email server as secretary of state.
He added that the process afforded Clinton by the FBI, then headed by James Comey, afforded Clinton a process that would not have been given to “any other American.”
â€œWe now have evidence thatÂ the FBIâ€™s investigation ofÂ Hillary Clinton did notÂ follow normal and standardÂ procedures,â€ he said. â€œThe current deputy directorÂ of the FBI Andrew McCabeÂ sent emails just weeksÂ before the presidentialÂ election saying that theÂ Hillary ClintonÂ investigation would be special â€” that it would be handled byÂ a small team atÂ headquarters, that it would be givenÂ special status.â€
Continuing, Gaetz said,Â â€œCombine that with the factÂ that Attorney GeneralÂ Loretta Lynch told the JamesÂ Comey to call this â€˜a matterâ€™ and not an investigation. That she met with BillÂ Clinton on the tarmac andÂ that James Comey himself hasÂ admitted in testimony thatÂ he drafted the exonerationÂ statement of Hillary ClintonÂ before even interviewing herÂ or other key witnesses.
“We seem to have a departureÂ from the normal applicationÂ of the law.Â And we will be calling for aÂ full review by the Judiciary Committee of the processesÂ and procedures thatÂ potentially gave HillaryÂ Clinton a different processÂ and a different standard ofÂ justice than would beÂ applied to any otherÂ American,” he added.
In recent days, Attorney General Jeff Sessions hinted that he may appoint a second special counsel to investigate additional allegations against Clinton pertaining to the Uranium One deal and donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Previous reports noted that the FBI, then led by current special counsel Robert Mueller, had evidence of corruption involving the deal before it was made, but failed to act on it.
The bureauÂ turned up evidence of collusion, racketeering, bribery and payoffs between Russian nuclear company interests tied to President Vladimir Putin and the Clinton Foundation way back in 2010, according toÂ The Hill.
