    NYPost is very anti-Hillary, the same way NYDailyNews is very anti-Trump. But Paul Sperry’s had good reporting on numerous issues, for example, his hardhitting 28 pages-related ‘How US covered up Saudi role in 9/11’ from earlier this year. Generally I wouldn’t share anti-Hillary NYPost stories, but Paul Sperry isn’t some dumb partisan.


    FBI agents are ready to revolt over the cozy Clinton probe

    Veteran FBI agents say FBI Director James Comey has permanently damaged the bureau’s reputation for uncompromising investigations with his “cowardly” whitewash of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified information using an unauthorized private e-mail server.

    Feeling the heat from congressional critics, Comey last week argued that the case was investigated by career FBI agents, “So if I blew it, they blew it, too.”

    But agents say Comey tied investigators’ hands by agreeing to unheard-of ground rules and other demands by the lawyers for Clinton and her aides that limited their investigation.

    Is it normal to have agents sign NDAs for criminal investigations? Once Obama endorsed Hillary while the criminal investigation was ongoing this case was over. Sorry boss we are going to tarnish your reputation by charging your successor is a difficult discussion.

    I still wonder why they would restrict their searches on laptops to before the date emails were ordered to be destroyed, wouldn't that clearly show intent?

    This would explain why Comey kept saying that it was an unanimous decision.

    Ok, a few points worth noting:

    Paul Sperry is an opinion writer, not a news reporter. This column is labeled "Opinion."

    There is not a single word in the story to support the headline assertion that FBI agents are ready to "revolt" or demonstrate or in any way express or show dissatisfaction about this probe.

    The op-ed quotes exactly one (!) currently employed FBI agent - anonymously. How are "FBI agents" - plural - ready to revolt when only one employed agent is quoted and he/she says nothing about a revolt?

    The op-ed quotes several former agents, none of whom were involved in the Clinton probe and none of whom mention revolt. Are these agents going to re-resign in protest?

    Other than that, no overblown unsupported hyping here by this great "reporter."

    Okay...first of all, it is in print on a newspaper and some people see that as fact. Opinion is fact depending on who reads it. Second of all....actually I have nothing else...so there! :p

    Not only the FBI. The U.S. intelligence agencies are outraged by the lenient treatment of Hillary even though she exposed the crown jewels of American intelligence to Russia and China.

    I'll believe it when they give up their dental plans and pensions.

    Pensions are oh-so-1980 and harder to take away than a 401k plan with is promises of higher returns, just sell before the peons do.
