KBaish| Investigative Reporter Paul Sperry revealed some damning information this past week. On October 28th, 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey penned a letter to the House Oversight Committee. The letter claimed that the FBI had reopened the Hillary Clinton private server investigation upon finding her State Department emails on the laptop of Anthony Weiner.
It was reported that hundreds of thousands of emails were uncovered from Weiner’s laptop, however, the investigation was closed by the bureau after only a few days. They claimed that they had read all of the emails.
James Comey claimed in front of Congress that the FBI had read all of the 700,000 emails that were uncovered from Weiner’s laptop. As it turns out, the FBI only looked at around 3,000 of the 700,000 emails.
That leaves us wondering how the FBI was able to read 700,000 emails in just a few days. Comey said to Congress, “thanks to the wizardry of our technology,” the bureau managed to delete most of the messages as “duplicates” of emails that had already been examined.
Paul Sperry provided evidence which proves that James Comey lied.
Paul Sperry of Real Clear Investigations reports:
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.
“Most of the emails were never examined, even though they made up potentially 10 times the evidence” of what was reviewed in the original year-long case that Comey closed in July 2016, said a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation.
Yet even the “extremely narrow” search that was finally conducted, after more than a month of delay, uncovered more classified material sent and/or received by Clinton through her unauthorized basement server, the official said. Contradicting Comey’s testimony, this included highly sensitive information dealing with Israel and the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas. The former secretary of state, however, was never confronted with the sensitive new information and it was never analyzed for damage to national security.
Even though the unique classified material was improperly stored and transmitted on an unsecured device, the FBI did not refer the matter to U.S. intelligence agencies to determine if national security had been compromised, as required under a federally mandated “damage assessment” directive.
The newly discovered classified material “was never previously sent out to the relevant original classification authorities for security review,” the official, who spoke to RealClearInvestigations on the condition of anonymity, said.
Other key parts of the investigation remained open when the embattled director announced to Congress he was buttoning the case back up for good just ahead of Election Day.
One career FBI special agent involved in the case complained to New York colleagues that officials in Washington tried to “bury” the new trove of evidence, which he believed contained the full archive of Clinton’s emails — including long-sought missing messages from her first months at the State Department.
This past Thursday, Sperry made an appearance on Fox News’ “Ingraham Angle.” While on the show, he talked to former Congressman Jason Chaffetz. Chaffetz was filling in for the show’s host, Laura Ingraham. Chaffetz is a former Chairman of the House Oversight Committee as well. He recalls the day that the letter Comey wrote about the Hillary State Department emails uncovered from Weiner’s laptop came in.

Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch reported that at least 18 of the emails uncovered from Weiner’s laptop contained “classified information.” This included the name of one CIA official.
