Peter Strzok, a known anti-Trump agent, was informed that Hillary Clinton’s secret server may have been hacked, according to Fox News, and he did nothing about it.
The shocking thing is that Strzok is still employed by the FBI and he could be guilty of covering up evidence of a potential breach on Clinton’s email server, one that had classified national security intelligence and was being stored at her residence.
Fox report states, “Sources [said] that Strzok, who sent anti-Trump text messages that got him removed from the ongoing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, was told about the metadata anomaly in 2016, but Strzok did not support a formal damage assessment.”
One source claimed, “Nothing happened.”
Allegedly Strzok was alerted of an “irregularity in the metadata,” which in English is a direct signal of a hack in the system. Fox continued to state that this is a direct breach of FBI protocol, “[D]irective 732, damage assessments are done in response to unauthorized disclosure or compromise of classified national intelligence.”
“Intelligence beyond top secret was identified on the Clinton server. As secretary of state, Clinton chose to use a private, non-secure server for government business,” the report continued.
Via Breitbart: Outside of the obvious security implications, another reason this is important comes down to the statement disgraced former-FBI Director James Comey made when he went out of his way to let Clinton off the hook during the 2016 presidential campaign.
Comey stated in July of 2016: “With respect to potential computer intrusion by hostile actors, we did not find direct evidence that Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail domain, in its various configurations since 2009, was successfully hacked.”
His statement doesn’t mean much as it was edited by Obama administration officials from a hack of Clinton’s server being “reasonably likely” to merely “possible.”
“Given that combination of factors, we assess it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal e-mail account,” he said.
This statement was made by Comey before clearing Clinton of any legal wrongdoing.
We also know that Strzok was responsible for the language in this statement that was downgraded from “grossly negligent” (a criminal offense) to “extremely careless.”
If these Fox’s sources are correct — and an Inspector General’s report on the FBI’s handling of its investigation into Clinton’s server is expected to tell us soon either way — outside of Strzok’s possible malfeasance, what did Comey know when he assured us there was no “direct evidence” of a hack? Was he aware of the irregularity in the metadata that was evidence of a breach?
