[FBI Director James Comey towers over Barry Barack Obama aka Sponge Bob]
Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity—The FBI Motto ..of which Obama lacks all!
Even as the Obama administration tries to claim it is not interfering in the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email server and its contents, its actions are causing a backlash of resentment from federal agencies involved in the probe.
On Friday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest proclaimed the White House’s innocence in connection with the investigation.
“I can tell you with full confidence that there has been no political interference in this process” of releasing Clinton’s emails, he said.
When Earnest was asked whether Clinton would be indicted in this case, Earnest responded, “I know that some officials over there have said that she is not a target of the investigation, so that does not seem to be the direction it’s trending.”
Speaking on the On the Record with Greta Van Susteren show Friday, Chief Intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge said Earnest’s statements have FBI and Justice departments “super pissed off.”
“Because number one, they say Josh Earnest has absolutely no clearance or visibility into the FBI investigation. Number two, they say it really seems part of a troubling pattern from the White House because the president earlier said he did not see any national security implications to the Clinton emails, and then we found out he had never been briefed,” Herridge said.
“And the whole idea is to not make this even more political than absolutely necessary, but the White House is weighing in and certainly leaving the public with the impression that is not backed up by the evidence in the case,” Herridge said.
Herridge’s comments came as Fox News owner Rupert Murdoch raised the issue of Clinton’s emails in tweets sent out Saturday and Sunday.
