FBI’s Top Lawyer Talked out of Clinton Charges

Years after the fact, we’re learning that the FBI was not united by then Director James Comey concerning his decision not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton for illegally transmitting classified information over her insecure, private email server. At the time, then FBI General Counsel James Baker believed that Clinton should face criminal charges. According to his testimony to House investigators last year, Baker claims he was talked out of his opinion because it was “pretty late in the process, because we were arguing about it, I think, up until the end.” The end being the 2016 elections. So, once again, we have more confirmation of collusion by the FBI/DOJ Deep State cabal to rig things in Hillary’s favor…as if we needed any more.

Here’s more from The Hill…

For most of the past three years, the FBI has tried to portray its top leadership as united behind ex-Director James Comey’s decision not to pursue criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for transmitting classified information over her insecure, private email server.

Although in the end that may have been the case, we now are learning that Comey’s top lawyer, then-FBI General Counsel James Baker, initially believed Clinton deserved to face criminal charges, but was talked out of it “pretty late in the process.”

The revelation is contained in testimony Baker gave to House investigators last year. His testimony has not been publicly released, but I was permitted to review a transcript.
