The determination by FBI Director James Comey to reopen the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server and her mishandling of classified materials came after he could no longer avoid mounting tension by FBI agents detailed as “mutinous.”
In an post for Britain’s Daily Mail, bestselling author Ed Klein accounts some of Comey’s top deputies were in on the mutiny, based on a source close to the director.
“The atmosphere at the FBI has been toxic ever since Jim announced last July that he wouldn’t recommend an indictment against Hillary,” explained the source, who Klein states has known Comey for nearly 20 years, goes to Catholic mass with him each week, and spends family outings with each other.
“Some people, including department heads, stopped talking to Jim, and even ignored his greetings when they passed him in the hall,” explained the source. “They felt that he betrayed them and brought disgrace on the bureau by letting Hillary off with a slap on the wrist.”
The source states Comey tormented over the problem for months and even discussed it with his wife, Patrice.
Comey explained to Patrice the stack of resignation letters from livid agents was making him despondent, as they reminded him that morale at the bureau had hit rock bottom.
“He’s been ignoring the resignation letters in the hope that he could find a way of remedying the situation,’” mentioned the source, as outlined by Klein.
“When new emails that appeared to be related to Hillary’s personal email server turned up in a computer used [her close aide] Huma Abedin and [Abedin’s disgraced husband,] Anthony Weiner, Comey jumped at the excuse to reopen the investigation.
“The people he trusts the most have been the angriest at him. And that includes his wife, Pat. She kept urging him to admit that he had been wrong when he refused to press charges against the former secretary of state.”
“He talks about the damage that he’s done to himself and the institution [of the FBI], and how he’s been shunned by the men and women who he admires and work for him. It’s taken a tremendous toll on him. It shattered his ego. He looks like he’s aged 10 years in the past four months.”
Klein states Comey’s choice to reopen the case “was more than an effort to heal the wound he inflicted on the FBI.”
“He was also worried that after the presidential election, Republicans in Congress would mount a probe of how he had granted Hillary political favoritism,” Klein published.
The new look at Hillary’s emails, coming just 11 days prior to Election Day, is reported to have floored U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and prosecutors at the Justice Department.
“Jim told me that Lynch and Obama are furious with him,” the source stated.
Klein records that President Obama pointed out his selection of Comey as FBI director was “my worst mistake as president.”
“Lynch and Obama haven’t contacted Jim directly,” stated the source, “but they’ve made it crystal clear through third parties that they disapprove of his effort to save face.”
