(National Sentinel)Â “Special:”Â Email evidence from FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe indicates that the bureau’s criminal probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information was coded “HQ Special,” a term suggesting that the investigation did not follow standard procedures, which resulted in a “softening” of the FBI’s findings.
Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fla., revealed the findings during an interview onÂ Fox News‘ “America’s Newsroom” on Friday.
“We have email evidence from Andrew McCabe indicating thatÂ Hillary Clinton was going to get an â€˜HQ Special,â€™ a headquarters special,” he said.
Gaetz explained further that the term was an indication that “the normal processes at the Washington field office weren’t followed and [McCabe] had a very small group of people that had a pro-Hillary Clinton bias who had a direct role in changing the outcome of that investigation from one that likely should have been criminal to one where she was able to walk.”
“The Judiciary Committee is engaged in an investigation, particularly as it relates to the handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal and any potential investigations of the Clinton Foundation and the handling of bribes or other types of improper payments,” the Florida Republican added.
“I think we have to ensure that never happens again, that the same processes that would apply to any American would also apply to people who were running for president of the United States,” he continued.
“We just want to follow the facts, we want to see if weâ€™ve got the right systems and processes in place for reporting and transparency, so that the American people have confidence in the FBI and confidence in the Department of Justice,” he said.
