Donald Trump had the line of the night during the second presidential debate when he told Hillary Clinton that she’d “be in jail” if he was president:
Liberals, of course, scoffed and rolled their eyes. After all, FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch both opted not to press charges, so therefore Clinton didn’t do anything illegal. Right?
Wrong. A person closely involved with the year-long investigation into Clinton’s private email servertold FoxNews.com that career agents and attorneys on the case “unanimously” felt that Clinton should have been punished:
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.”
Trump was right; Clinton should be behind bars right now. Instead, she’s running for President of the United States.
