When FBI Director James Comey laid out the case against Hillary, and then said there would be no charges, everyone was shocked. A huge FBI and DOJ team worked for a year on the investigation. One person involved in the case is speaking out.
The decision to let Hillary Clinton off the hook for mishandling classified information has roiled the FBI and Department of Justice, with one person closely involved in the year-long probe telling FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case unanimously believed the Democratic presidential nominee should have been charged.
The source, who spoke to FoxNews.com on the condition of anonymity, said FBI Director James Comey’s dramatic July 5 announcement that he would not recommend to the Attorney General’s office that the former secretary of state be charged left members of the investigative team dismayed and disgusted. More than 100 FBI agents and analysts worked around the clock with six attorneys from the DOJ’s National Security Division, Counter Espionage Section, to investigate the case.
“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.
A high-ranking FBI official told Fox News that while it might not have been a unanimous decision, “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.”
…“It is well known that the FBI agents on the ground, the human beings who did the investigative work, had built an extremely strong case against Hillary Clinton and were furious when the case did not move forward,” said [Judge Andrew] Napolitano. “They believe the decision not to prosecute came from The White House.”
The claim also is backed up by a report in the New York Post this week, which quotes a number of veteran FBI agents saying 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 email server.”

Looks like the Investigative Team had the same reaction that we all did– the collective ‘WTF’?
This was top-down. Lynch and Comey… and the White House.
Perhaps it’s because Obama emailed Hillary on her server using a pseudonym.
The DOJ couldn’t take down one without taking down the other.
The FBI has become politicized.
The ENTIRE Team wanted Hillary’s Security Clearance yanked.
Think about that for a second.
NOT ONE PERSON on that team was confident in giving the SECRETARY OF STATE Security Clearance.
And she could be POTUS.
How do you do that job without Security Clearance?
If Hillary wins, America is so screwed!
