The justifiable blowback against FBI Director James Comey over his inexplicable failure to recommend criminal charges against Hillary Clinton continues to mount, and based on the agency's own recently-released documents underlying the supposed inquiry "it's clear now the FBI conducted a sweetheart investigation . . . that appears to have been fixed from the start to go nowhere" as reported by Paul Sperry for the New York Post: "far from exonerating Clinton, the nearly 60 pages of documents expose both the systematic destruction of subpoenaed evidence by Clinton's aides and the curious lack of interest by investigators in recovering it," and "agents also failed to resolve unanswered questions, reconcile contradictory testimony or sweat uncooperative witnesses." Moreover, when "Comey and his investigators came across e-mails that showed signs of a possible pay-for-play scheme between Clinton Foundation donors and the State Department . . . Comey chose not to expand the e-mail investigation into a probe of public corruption."
The FBI once was a well-respected law enforcement agency, and the public may never trust it again.
