The Daily Caller has continued to dig through the stacks of data relating to the IG’s report on the so called “Mid Year” investigation of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s e-mails, particularly the cache discovered on the laptop Humma Abedin used for work and her husband used to sext with underage girls.

When then-FBI Director James Comey announced he was closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation for a second time just days before the 2016 election, he certified to Congress that his agency had “reviewed all of the communications” discovered on a personal laptop used by Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, and her husband, Anthony Weiner.
At the time, many wondered how investigators managed over the course of one week to read the “hundreds of thousands” of emails residing on the machine, which had been a focus of a sex-crimes investigation of Weiner, a former Congressman.
Comey later told Congress that “thanks to the wizardry of our technology,” the FBI was able to eliminate the vast majority of messages as “duplicates” of emails they’d previously seen. Tireless agents, he claimed, then worked “night after night after night” to scrutinize the remaining material.
But virtually none of his account was true, a growing body of evidence reveals.
In fact, a technical glitch prevented FBI technicians from accurately comparing the new emails with the old emails. Only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.
Clearly both the initial and the subsequent investigations of Secretary Clinton’s E-mails were shams, the latter part an exceptionally shabby one.
Everyone who sent or received Classified Information via the Clinton E-Mail Servers should be barred for life from holding any security clearance.
