NYT report: FBI believed Obama was rigging U.S. election

By the Horn News editorial team  

A bombshell report was just released by the New York Times, and it provides shocking evidence that FBI Director James Comey was fully aware President Barack Obama’s administration was rigging the presidential election in favor of (failed) Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

The report reveals Comey reopened the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server solely to uphold the credibility of the F.B.I., out of fear that Obama’s administration was not supporting an independent, thorough investigation and he would be criticized for the unethical bias.

He anticipated Obama’s Attorney General Loretta Lynch would intentionally close the investigation into Clinton’s email server before any true crimes were able to be revealed, based on an email obtained by Russian hackers and then intercepted by the F.B.I.

“The document, which has been described as both a memo and an email, was written by a Democratic operative who expressed confidence that Ms. Lynch would keep the Clinton investigation from going too far, according to several former officials familiar with the document,” The Times reported. 

Based on the assumption that Clinton would win the election and Russian hackers would release the email, Comey reopened the investigation to cover their tracks.

But there was another investigation in the works that Comey did not reveal to the public.

The F.B.I. was also investigating then presidential nominee Donald Trump, but followed typical protocol of secrecy - likely due to the lack of political motivation hindering his investigation.

The investigation into Trump didn’t possess the potential public backlash that was plaguing Clinton’s investigation.

Throughout the campaign, Lynch was anything but subtle in her cohorts with the Clintons.

She was caught privately meeting with Bill Clinton during the election, leading to raised suspicions that she was too familiar with the Clinton clan, and would not support an independent, unbiased investigation.

She encouraged Comey to refer to Clinton’s investigation as a “matter,” not an “investigation” and even revised a public statement from the Justice Department about the investigation to remove the word, “criminal.”

The Times’ report further proves that Lynch and Obama’s administration were tampering with the election to do everything in their power to ensure Clinton’s win, and even Obama’s own F.B.I was onto them.

But even with all the clear tampering, Obama and Lynch still couldn’t beat Trump.

It’s time someone went to jail for this.
