Here’s a little more fuel for the political fire.
An unnamed person closely involved in the probe into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information, tells Fox News that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged. A second official says it may not have been unanimous but indicated the vast majority felt that way.
The first source tells FoxNews.com that FBI Director James Comey’s July 5 announcement that he would not recommend charges left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted.
“No trial level attorney agreed, no agent working the case agreed, with the decision not to prosecute — it was a top-down decision,” said the source, whose identity and role in the case has been verified by FoxNews.com.
The second, source, a high-ranking FBI official, told Fox News that it might not have been a unanimous decision, but “it was unanimous that we all wanted her [Clinton’s] security clearance yanked.”
“It is safe to say the vast majority felt she should be prosecuted,” the senior FBI official told Fox News. “We were floored while listening to the FBI briefing because Comey laid it all out, and then said ‘but we are doing nothing,’ which made no sense to us.”
