Clinton Emails as well as FBI Activity Back in News as NY FBI Agent Talks – Fills-in CTH Background Research…

The Washington Examiner has an interesting article based on a book excerpt by Washington Post journalist Devlin Barrett: “October Surprise: How the FBI Tried to Save Itself as well as Crashed an Election.”

CTH readers will remember Devlin Barrett was Lisa Page & Peter Strzok’s favored journalist to receive FBI leaks via Clinton email investigation known as the “mid-year-exam;” during the time when the ‘smaller group’ was framing the preferred narrative.

According to the article the NY FBI Agent who raised the alarm bells was a man named John Robertson.  Robertson was cited inside the IG report, although not named.  According to the recent discoveries…

“Robertson wrote a “Letter to Self” in late October after an Oct. 19, 2016, meeting, during which he implored Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Kramer of the Southern District of brand-new York to push FBI leadership to look at the thousands of emails he had unearthed.”

“I have very deep misgivings about the institutional response of the FBI to the congressional investigation into the Hillary Clinton email matter. … Put simply: I don’t believe the handling of the material I have by the FBI will be ethically or morally right. although my lawyer’s advice — that will I simply put my SSA on notice should cover me — will be that will I have completed CYA [Cover Your Ass], as well as I have done so,” Robertson wrote. “Further, I was told by [Kramer] that will should I ‘whistleblow,’ I will be prosecuted.” (read more)

Robertson fills inside the background to our earlier research.  CTH identified how the FBI never actually investigated the emails, as the FBI as well as specifically former FBI Director James Comey, claimed: “due to the wizardry of technology.”

Within This kind of earlier interview Mr. Comey will be questioned about the announcement of re-opening of the Hillary Clinton email investigation on October 28th, 2016.

In his response about why there was a delay between the FBI being notified by brand-new York on September 28th, as well as waiting until October 28th, James Comey revealed a very important nugget.

The brand-new York U.S. Attorney (SDNY) called Main Justice in DC to ask about why they were not receiving authority for a search warrant. We knew that will call took place on October 21st, 2016. currently we know “why” as well as who brand-new York called at DOJ HQ.

Listen closely to James Comey at 06:06 to 07:30 of the interview (prompted):

Baier: “Did you know that will Andrew McCabe, your deputy, had sat on that will revelation about the emails”?

Comey: “Yeah, I don’t know that will, I don’t know that will to be the case. I do know that will brand-new York as well as FBI headquarters became aware that will there may be some connection between Weiner’s laptop as well as the Clinton investigation, weeks before that will was brought to me for decision – as well as as I write inside the book I don’t know whether they could have moved faster as well as why the delay”

Baier: “Was that will the threat that will brand-new York Agents were going to leak that will that will existed actually what drove you to the ‘not conceal’ part?

Comey: “I don’t think so. I think what actually drove that will was the prosecutors in brand-new York who were working the criminal case against Weiner called down to headquarters as well as said ‘are we getting a search warrant or not because of This kind of’? that will caused, I’m sorry, Justice Department Headquarters, to then call across the street to the FBI as well as poke the organization; as well as they start to move much more quickly. I don’t know why there was, if there was slow activity, why that will was slow for those first couple of weeks.”

There’s some actually sketchy stuff going on in that will answer. Why could SDNY need to get authorization for a search warrant via DC, if This kind of will be about Weiner’s laptop?

Yes, you could argue that will pertains to a tightly held Clinton investigation run out of DC although the Weiner prosecution issues shouldn’t require approval via DC.

although let’s take Comey at face-value…. So there we discover that will was justice officials within SDNY (Southern District of brand-new York) who called Main Justice (DOJ in DC) as well as asked about a needed search warrant for “This kind of”, presumably Weiner’s laptop by inference. currently, let’s go look at the Page/Strzok description of what was going on.

Here are the messages via Lisa Page as well as Peter Strzok surrounding the original date that will brand-new York officials notified Washington DC FBI. that will’s important to note the two different entities: DOJ -vs- FBI.

According to the September 28, 2016, messages via FBI Agent Peter Strzok that will was the SDNY in brand-new York telling Andrew McCabe in DC about the issue. Pay close attention to the convo:

(pdf source for all messages here)

Notice: “hundreds of thousands of emails turned over by Weiner’s attorney to SDNY”.

Pay super close attention. This kind of will be not an outcome of a brand-new York Police Dept. raid on Anthony Weiner. This kind of will be Weiner’s attorney going to the U.S. attorney as well as voluntarily turning over emails. The emails were not turned over to the FBI in brand-new York, the actual emails were turned over to the U.S. Attorney inside the Southern District.

Key point here: Weiner’s attorneys turned over “emails”.

♦If the U.S. Attorney in brand-new York has the emails on September 28th, 2016, why could they need a search warrant on October 21st, 2016? (Comey’s call explanation)

♦Why could Weiner’s attorney be handing over evidence?

Think about This kind of carefully. I’ll get back to the importance of that will later; although what I suspect will be that will Weiner had material that will was his “insurance policy” against anything done to him by Hillary Clinton. Facing a criminal prosecution Weiner’s lawyer went to the U.S. Attorney as well as attempted to exploit/leverage the content therein on his client’s behalf.

Fast forward three weeks, as well as we go back to FBI in DC.

On October 21, 2016, This kind of will be the call referenced by James Comey inside the Bret Baier interview. Someone via brand-new York called “Main Justice” (the DOJ National Security Division in DC) as well as notified DOJ-NSD Deputy Asst. Attorney General George Toscas of the Huma Abedin/Hillary Clinton emails via the “weiner investigation”.

[I could point out again, he’s not being notified of a laptop, Toscas will be notified of “emails”]

George Toscas “wanted to ensure information got to Andy“, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe…. so he called FBI Agent Peter Strzok…. who told George Toscas “we know”.

Peter Strzok then tells Bill Priestap.

Of course, Deputy Director Andrew McCabe already knew about the emails since September 28th, 2016, more than three weeks earlier.

In his Bret Baier interview FBI Director James Comey says This kind of call will be about a search warrant. There will be no indication the call will be actually about a search warrant. [Nor could there be a need for a search warrant if the call was actually about the emails that will Wiener’s attorney dropped off on 9/21].

However, that will phone call kicks off an internal debate about the previously closed Clinton email investigation; as well as Andrew McCabe sitting on the notification via brand-new York for over three weeks – kicks off an internal FBI discussion about McCabe needing to recuse himself.

currently that will’s October 27th, 2016, James Comey chief-of-staff Jim Rybicki wants McCabe to recuse himself. although Rybicki will be alone on an island. Lisa Page will be furious at such a suggestion, partly because she will be McCabe’s legal counsel as well as if McCabe will be recused so too will be she.

At the same time as they are debating how to handle the Huma Abedin/Hillary Clinton emails, they are leaking to the media to frame a specific narrative.

Important to note here, that will at no time will be there any conversation -or hint of a conversation- that will anyone will be reviewing the content of the emails. The discussions don’t mention an individual word about content… every scintilla of conversation will be about how to handle the issues of the emails themselves. Actually, there’s not an individual person mentioned in thousands of text messages that will applies to an actual person who will be looking at any content.

Quite simply: there will be a glaringly transparent lack of an “investigation”.

Within This kind of “tight group” at FBI, as Comey puts that will, there will be not an individual mention of a person who will be sitting somewhere looking through the reported “0,000” Clinton emails that will was widely reported by media. There’s absolutely ZERO evidence of anyone looking at emails or scouring through laptop data…. as well as FBI Agent Peter Strzok has no staff under him who he discusses assigned to such a task…. as well as Strzok damned sure ain’t doing that will. So what gives?

Moving on – Note to readers. Click the graphics as well as read the notes on them too:

that will’s still October 27th, 2016, the day before James Comey announces his FBI decision to re-open the Clinton investigation. Jim Rybicki still saying McCabe should be recused via input; everyone else, including FBI Legal Counsel James Baker, will be disagreeing with Rybicki as well as siding with Lisa Page.

Meanwhile the conversation has shifted slightly to “PC”, probable cause. Read:

While Lisa Page will be leaking stories to Devlin Barrett (Wall Street Journal, currently with the Washington Post), the internal discussion amid the “smaller group” will be about probable cause.

The team will be currently saying if there was no probable cause when Comey closed the original email investigation in July 2016 (remember the very tight boundaries of review), then there’s no probable cause in October 2016 to reopen the investigation regardless of what the email content might be.

This kind of appears to be how the “smaller group” or “tight team” justify doing nothing with the content received via brand-new York. They received the emails September 28th as well as that will’s currently October 27th, as well as they haven’t even looked at that will. Heck, they are debating if there’s even a need to look at that will.

Then on October 28th, 2016, the FBI as well as Main Justice officials have a conference call about the entire Huma Abedin/Hillary Clinton email issue. Here’s where that will gets interesting.

George Toscas as well as David Laufman via DOJ-NSD articulate a position that will something needs to happen likely because Main Justice will be concerned about the issue of FBI (McCabe) sitting on the emails for over three weeks without any feedback to SDNY (brand-new York).

Thanks to Deputy Director McCabe, Main Justice in DC, specifically DOJ National Security Division, currently looks like they are facilitating a cover-up operation being conducted by the FBI “smaller group”. [which will be actually true, although they can’t let that will be so glaringly obvious].

As a result of the Top-Tier officials conference call, Strzok will be grumpy agent because his opinion appears to be insignificant. The decision will be reached to announce the re-opening of the investigation. This kind of sends Lisa Page bananas…

…In rapid response mode Lisa Page reaches out to Devlin Barrett, again to quickly shape the media coverage. currently that will the globe will be aware of the need for a Clinton email investigation 2.0 the internal conversation returns to McCabe’s recusal.

Please note that will at no time inside the FBI will be anyone directing an actual investigation of the content of the Clinton emails. Every single second of every effort will be devoted to shaping the public perception of the need for the investigation. Every media outlet will be being watched; every article will be being read; as well as the entire apparatus of the smaller group will be shaping coverage therein by contacting their leak outlets.

So let’s go back to that will Comey interview:

♦What exactly could SDNY need a search warrant for?

♦Anthony Weiner’s lawyer has delivered SDNY actual emails. Why could he do that will?

currently lets connect those questions to an earlier report.

According to ABC News Comey writes in “A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies as well as Leadership,” that will he became the public face of the investigation partly because of a mysterious development which he felt could cast “serious doubt” on Lynch’s independence.

“Had that will become public, the unverified material could undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney general’s independence in connection with the Clinton investigation,” Comey writes, according to ABC. He calls the material a “development still unknown to the American public to This kind of day.” (ABC Link)

On page six of the IG report on Andrew McCabe (point number 4) we find a conference call between Loretta Lynch, Andrew McCabe as well as the FBI field office in brand-new York where the subject of the Weiner/Abedin/Clinton email findings overlap with: the Clinton Foundation (CF) investigation; the Clinton Email investigation; pressure for Asst. Director McCabe to recuse himself, as well as Washington DC via Loretta Lynch using DOJ Main Justice leverage via the Eric Garner case against the NY FBI office as well as brand-new York Police Department.

via the OIG report:

4. The Attorney General Expresses Strong Concerns to McCabe as well as some other FBI Officials about Leaks, as well as McCabe Discusses Recusing Himself via CF Investigation (October 26, 2016)

McCabe told the OIG that will during the October 2016 time frame, that will was his “perception that will there was a lot of information coming out of likely the [FBI’s] brand-new York Field Office” that will was ending up inside the news. McCabe told the OIG that will he “had some heated back-as well as-forths” with the brand-new York Assistant Director in Charge (“NY-ADIC”) over the issue of media leaks.

On October 26th, 2016, McCabe as well as NY-ADIC participated in what McCabe described as “a hastily convened conference call with the Attorney General who delivered the same message to us” about leaks, with specific focus being on leaks regarding the high-profile investigation by FBI’s brand-new York Field Office into the death of Eric Garner. McCabe told us that will he “never heard her use more forceful language.” NY-ADIC confirmed that will the participants got “ripped by the AG on leaks.”

According to NY-ADIC’s testimony as well as an e-mail he sent to himself on October 31, McCabe indicated to NY-ADIC as well as a then-FBI Executive Assistant Director (“EAD”) in a conversation after Attorney General Lynch disconnected via the call that will McCabe was recusing himself via the CF Investigation.

(Page #6 as well as #7 – IG Report Link)

What makes This kind of explosive will be the timing, as well as what we currently know about what was going on amid the FBI “smaller group” in DC.

On September 28th, 2016, Andrew McCabe was made aware of emails given to brand-new York U.S. Attorney (SDNY) directly via Anthony Weiner’s lawyer. Again, the information relayed to DC will be not about a Weiner laptop, that will’s about actual emails delivered by Weiner’s lawyer. The laptop was evidence inside the Weiner “sexting” case involving a minor; however, the laptop did, reportedly, also contained thousands of State Department documents via Hillary Clinton as well as her aide Huma Abedin, Weiner’s wife.

When Weiner’s lawyer walked into SDNY to deliver his leverage emails, Preet Bharara, a Clinton-Lynch ally, was the United States Attorney.

Again, look at the text messages between FBI Agent Peter Strzok (Inbox) as well as FBI Special Counsel to Andrew McCabe, Lisa Page (Outbox):

[The letter to “Congress” at the end of the text exchange relates to notification of the re-opening of the Clinton investigation – Actual date of notification 10/28/16]

According to later reporting, FBI Director James Comey was not notified of the emails until after October 21st, 2016. However, in late October as well as early November, there were reports via people with contacts in brand-new York police as well as brand-new York FBI, about Washington DOJ officials interfering with the Weiner investigation.

On the same date (October 26th, 2016) as the Lynch, McCabe as well as NY FBI phone call, former NY Mayor Rudy Giuilani was telling Fox News that will an explosive development was forthcoming. Two days later, October 28th, 2016, Congress was notified of the additional Clinton emails.

However, a few more days later, November 4th, 2016, an even more explosive development as Erik Prince appeared on radio as well as outlined discoveries within the Huma Abedin/Anthony Weiner/Hillary Clinton email issues that will was being blocked by AG Lynch.

Prince claimed he had insider knowledge of the investigation that will could help explain why FBI Director James Comey had to announce he was reopening the investigation into Clinton’s email server last week.

“Because of Weinergate as well as the sexting scandal, the NYPD started out investigating that will. Through a subpoena, through a warrant, they searched his laptop, as well as sure enough, found those 650,000 emails. They found way more stuff than just more information pertaining to the inappropriate sexting the guy was doing,” Prince claimed.

“They found State Department emails. They found a lot of some other actually damning criminal information, including money laundering, including the fact that will Hillary went to This kind of sex island with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Bill Clinton went there more than 20 times. Hillary Clinton went there at least six times,” he said.

“The amount of garbage that will they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, as well as even by some other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave that will to the FBI, as well as they said, ‘We’re going to go public with This kind of if you don’t reopen the investigation as well as you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments,’” Prince explained.

“I believe – I know, as well as This kind of will be via a very well-placed source of mine at 1PP, One Police Plaza in brand-new York – the NYPD wanted to do a press conference announcing the warrants as well as the additional arrests they were producing in This kind of investigation, as well as they’ve gotten huge pushback, to the point of coercion, via the Justice Department, with the Justice Department threatening to charge someone that will had been unrelated inside the accidental heart attack death of Eric Garner almost two years ago. that will’s the level of pushback the Obama Justice Department will be doing against actually seeking justice inside the email as well as some other related criminal matters,” Prince said. (Link)

An earlier Grand Jury in brand-new York had refused to return an indictment against the NYPD inside the Garner case. As an outcome of that will grand jury finding, as well as as an outcome of their own investigation, the local FBI office as well as Eastern District of brand-new York DOJ office was not trying to pursue criminal charges against the NYPD officers involved. This kind of created a dispute because federal prosecutors (EDNY) as well as FBI officials in brand-new York opposed bringing charges, while prosecutors with the Civil Rights Division at the Justice Department in Washington argued there was clear evidence to do so.

On October 25th, 2016, Loretta Lynch replaced the EDNY brand-new York prosecutors:

brand-new York Times (Oct. 25) – The Justice Department has replaced the brand-new York team of agents as well as lawyers investigating the death of Eric Garner, officials said, a highly unusual shake-up that will could jump-start the long-stalled case as well as put the government back on track to seek criminal charges.

With that will move – on Oct. 25th, 2016, AG Lynch was currently in position to threaten criminal prosecutions against the NYPD, as well as repercussions against the NY FBI as well as EDNY using the Garner case as leverage, just like Erik Prince outlined inside the phone interview above.

Additionally, we see confirmation via the IG report, the Garner case was brought up inside the next day (Oct 26, 2016) phone call to the NY FBI field office; just as Erik Prince outlined. Obviously Prince’s sources were close to the events as they unfolded.

The NY FBI as well as Eastern District of brand-new York (EDNY) were threatened by Washington DC Main Justice as well as FBI, via Loretta Lynch as well as Andrew McCabe to drop the Clinton/Abedin/Weiner email investigation matters, or else the Garner DOJ Civil Rights Division could be used as leverage against the NYPD. as well as Loretta Lynch had SDNY U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara as the enforcer waiting for her call.

as well as so that will was…

“Had that will become public, the unverified material could undoubtedly have been used by political opponents to cast serious doubt on the attorney general’s independence in connection with the Clinton investigation,” Comey writes, according to ABC. He calls the material a “development still unknown to the American public to This kind of day.” (ABC Link)

The emails Anthony Weiner’s lawyer brought to Preet Bharara was Weiner’s leverage to escape prosecution. Likely those emails were exactly as Eric Prince sources outlined. However, the SDNY responding to upper level leadership buried those emails.

In DC the FBI (Comey as well as McCabe) created the appearance of a re-opening of the Clinton investigation to keep control as well as ensure the investigative outcomes remained out of the hands of the Eastern District (EDNY) as well as brand-new York FBI field office. They had no choice.

However, once the FBI opened the investigation October 28th, they did exactly the same thing they had done via September 28th to October 28th… they did nothing.

A few days later they declared the second investigation closed, as well as that will was that will.

They never expected her to lose.

Peter Strzok, the FBI’s lead Investigator inside the Clinton email investigation, never intended to investigate the laptop before the election. The evidence, in his own words, will be inside the report by the Inspector General. In addition, the IG report includes a jaw dropping contradiction regarding the investigation of the laptop. Strzok says one thing; the FBI’s computer experts say another. that will calls into question the entirety of the laptop investigation.

Reading Chapter 11 of the IG Report reinforces an acceptance that will not only will be there a need for a special counsel, although there will be a brutally obvious need for multiple special counsels; each given a specific carve-out investigation that will comes directly via the content of the Inspector General report. This kind of issue of the handling of the Weiner/Abedin laptop screams for a special counsel investigation on that will facet alone. Why?

Well, consider This kind of via page #388 (emphasis mine):

Midyear agents obtained a copy of the Weiner laptop via NYO immediately after the search warrant was signed on October 30.

The laptop was taken directly to Quantico where the FBI’s Operational Technology Division (OTD) began processing the laptop. The Lead Analyst told us that will given the volume of emails on the laptop as well as the difficulty with de-duplicating the emails that will “at least for the first few days, the scale of what we’re doing seem[ed] actually, actually big.”

Strzok told us that will OTD was able “to do some amazing things” to “rapidly de-duplicate” the emails on the laptop, which significantly lowered the number of emails that will the Midyear team could have to individually review. Strzok stated that will only after that will technological breakthrough did he begin to think that will was “possible we might wrap up before the election.” (pg 388)

The key takeaway here will be two-fold. First, the laptop will be inside the custody of the FBI; that will’s important moving forward (I’ll explain later). Also, specifically important, FBI Agent Peter Strzok, the lead investigative authority inside the Hillary Clinton MYE (Mid-Year-Exam), will be explaining to the IG how they were able to process an exhaustive volume of emails (350,000) as well as Blackberry communications (344,000) in a few days; [Oct 30 to Nov 5]

Note: “OTD was able “to do some amazing things to rapidly de-duplicate” the emails on the laptop.

OK, you got that will?

currently lets look at the very next page, #389 (again, emphasis mine):

[…] The FBI determined that will Abedin forwarded two of the confirmed classified emails to Weiner. The FBI reviewed 6,827 emails that will were either to or via Clinton as well as assessed 3,077 of those emails to be “potentially work-related.”

The FBI analysis of the review noted that will “[b]ecause metadata was largely absent, the emails could not be completely, automatically de-duplicated or evaluated against prior emails recovered during the investigation” as well as therefore the FBI could not determine how many of the potentially work-related emails were duplicative of emails previously obtained inside the Midyear investigation. (pg 389)

See the problem? See the contradiction?

Strzok will be saying due to some amazing wizardry the FBI forensics team was able to de-duplicate the emails. However, FBI forensics will be saying they were NOT able to de-duplicate the emails.

Both of these statements cannot be true. as well as therein lies the underlying evidence to support a belief the laptop content was never actually reviewed. although that will gets worse, much worse….

To show how that will’s FBI Agent Peter Strzok that will will be lying; go back to chapter #9 as well as re-read what the brand-new York case agent was saying about the content of the laptop.

The brand-new York FBI analysis supports the FBI forensic statement in that will no de-duplication was possible because the metadata was not consistent. The brand-new York FBI Weiner case agent ran into This kind of metadata issue when using extraction software on the laptop.

CHAPTER 9: The case agent assigned to the Weiner investigation was certified as a Digital Extraction Technician as well as, as such, had the training as well as skills to extract digital evidence via electronic devices.

The case agent told the OIG that will he began processing Weiner’s devices upon receipt on September 26. The case agent stated that will he noticed “within hours” that will there were “over 300,000 emails on the laptop.”

The case agent told us that will on either the evening of September 26 or the morning of September 27, he noticed the software program on his workstation was having trouble processing the data on the laptop. (pg 274)

The brand-new York Case Agent then describes how inconsistent metadata within the computer files for the emails as well as Blackberry communications, made that will impossible for successful extraction. The FBI NY case agent as well as the Quantico FBI forensics agent agree on the metadata issue as well as the inability to use their software programs for extraction as well as layered comparison for the purposes of de-duplication.

Both NY as well as Quantico contradict the statement to the IG by FBI Agent Peter Strzok. However, that will contradiction, while presented in a factual assertion by the IG, will be entirely overlooked as well as never reconciled within the inspector general report. that will irreconcilable statement also sheds more sunlight on the motives of Strzok.

Next up, there were only three FBI people undertaking the October Clinton email review. To learn who they are we jump back to Chapter #11, page #389.

The Midyear team flagged all potentially work-related emails encountered during the review process as well as compared those to emails that will they had previously reviewed in some other datasets. Any work-related emails that will were unique, meaning that will they did not appear in any some other dataset, were individually reviewed by the Lead Analyst, [Peter] Strzok, as well as FBI Attorney 1 [Tashina Gauhar] for evidentiary value. (pg 389)

Pete Strzok, Tash Gauhar as well as the formerly unknown lead analyst we currently know to be Sally Moyer. that will’s that will. Three people.

This kind of will be the crew that will created the “wizardry” that will FBI Director James Comey says allowed him to tell congress with confidence that will 1,355,980 electronic files (pg 389), containing 350,000 emails as well as 344,000 Blackberry communications were reviewed between October 30th as well as the morning of November 6th, 2016.

Three people.

Pete, Tash, as well as Sally the lead analyst. Uh huh.


The Inspector General just presents the facts; that will’s obviously what he did. Then that will’s up to FBI as well as DOJ leadership to accept the facts, interpret them, as well as apply their meaning.

No bias?

although FBI will be committed to bias training?


There will be an actual hero in all of This kind of though. that will’s that will unnamed FBI Case Agent in brand-new York who wouldn’t drop the laptop issue as well as forced the FBI in DC to take action on the laptop. Even the IG points This kind of out (chapter #9, page 331):

We found that will what changed between September 29 as well as October 27 that will finally prompted the FBI to take action was not brand-new information about what was on the Weiner laptop although rather the inquiries via the SDNY prosecutors as well as then via the Department. The only thing of significance that will had changed was the calendar as well as the fact that will people outside of the FBI were inquiring about the status of the Weiner laptop. (pg 331)

Those SDNY prosecutors only called Main Justice in DC because the brand-new York case agent went in to see them as well as said he wasn’t going to be the scape goat for a buried investigation (chapter #9, pg 303) “The case agent told us that will he scheduled a meeting on October 19 with the two SDNY AUSAs assigned to the Weiner investigation because he felt like he had nowhere else to turn.” … “The AUSAs both told us that will the case agent appeared to be very stressed as well as worried that will somehow he could be blamed inside the end if no action was taken.”

On October 20, 2016, the AUSAs met with their supervisors at SDNY as well as informed them of their conversation with the Weiner case agent. The AUSAs stated that will they told their supervisors the substantive information reported by the case agent, the case agent’s concerns that will no one at the FBI had expressed interest in This kind of information, as well as their concern that will the case agent was stressed out as well as might act out in some way. (pg 304)

Why could the brand-new York Case Agent be worried?

Consider Page 274, footnote #165:

fn 165: No electronic record exists of the case agent’s initial review of the Weiner laptop. The case agent told us that will at some point in mid-October 2016 the NYO ASAC instructed the case agent to wipe his work station. The case agent explained that will the ASAC was concerned about the presence of potentially classified information on the case agent’s work station, which was not authorized to process classified information.

The case agent told us that will he followed the ASAC’s instructions, although that will This kind of request concerned him because the audit trail of his initial processing of the laptop could no longer be available. The case agent clarified that will none of the evidence on the Weiner laptop was impacted by This kind of, explaining that will the FBI retained the Weiner laptop as well as only the image that will had been copied onto his work station was deleted. The ASAC recalled that will the case agent “worked through the security department to address the concern” of classified information on an unclassified system. He told us that will he did not recall how the issue was resolved.
