Reports suggest the NSA offered Former FBI Director James Comey Hillary Clinton’s ‘lost’ emails, but he turned them away.
Following reports by the Senate Judiciary Committee that said James Comey made the decision to not refer Clinton for prosecution before the investigation had ended, a new report suggests Comey was offered Clinton’s ‘lost’ emails by the NSA but chose not to accept them.
The New York Post reports, while citing a reliable source, the NSA offered the emails to Comey but he refused to accept them.
According to the New York Post’s source, Comey also lied when he claimed FBI agents unanimously agreed that Clinton shouldn’t be prosecuted. The source claims the agents were actually irritated about the lack of prosecution.
This could be the reason why the agents assigned to the Clinton case were forced to sign additional nondisclosure agreements.
Comey could also be in a risky situation after a federal judge ordered the FBI to disclose more details on its handling of the Clinton investigation.
These alleged revelations are coming to light due to the ‘Russia Investigation’ on President Trump.
Now that Republicans control the Senate Judiciary Committee, more news about the Democrats dealings will become public. That includes the investigation into whether the Russians stole Clinton’s emails.
