The FBI Agents Investigating Hillary Are Furious With Obama, And Here’s Why

The FBI Agents Investigating Hillary Are Furious With Obama, And Here’s Why

F.B.I. agents are reportedly angry over President Obama’s decision last Sunday to weigh in concerning their ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.

Before the agency has had a chance to review over 30,000 of Clinton’s emails to determine if she mishandled classified information, the president told 60 Minutes, “I don’t think it posed a national security problem.” He went on to characterize her actions as a “mistake.” Obama also stated definitively, “This is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.”

The New York Times reports, “Those statements angered F.B.I. agents who have been working for months to determine whether Ms. Clinton’s email setup had in fact put any of the nation’s secrets at risk, according to current and former law enforcement officials.”

The White House backed off the president’s words the next day promising he is not trying to influence the outcome of an ongoing investigation. “There’s a debate among national security experts, as part of their ongoing, independent review, about how or even whether to classify sections of those emails,” said Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary. “But, as the president said, there is no evidence to indicate that the information in those emails endangered our national security.”

A spokesman for the F.B.I. declined to comment to the New York Times about the president’s remarks. But Ron Hosko, a former senior F.B.I. official who retired in 2014, said it was inappropriate for Obama to “suggest what side of the investigation he is on” when the F.B.I. is still investigating.

“Injecting politics into what is supposed to be a fact-finding inquiry leaves a foul taste in the F.B.I.’s mouth and makes them fear that no matter what they find, the Justice Department will take the president’s signal and not bring a case,” said Hosko, who maintains close contact with current agents.

Obama could care less if he said the wrong thing. I wish so much when they left does things they would not always get away with it.
