The FBI’s announcement of the re-opening of its investigation into Hillary email server continues to make waves as virtually all the networks continue to cover the story.
But there’s plenty more than meets the eye in terms WHY Director Comey decided to make this move just 10 days before the presidential election.
Reports are already surfacing that the FBI has had the emails it claims as the reason for its decision for weeks.
What’s more, there are now insider reports that there likely was pressure on Comey from inside the FBI that forced his hand.
According to a report from Ed Klein at the Daily Mail:
“The atmosphere at the FBI has been toxic ever since Jim announced last July that he wouldn’t recommend an indictment against Hillary,” said the source, who Klein says has known Comey for nearly 20 years, goes to Catholic mass with him each week, and spends family outings together.
“Some people, including department heads, stopped talking to Jim, and even ignored his greetings when they passed him in the hall,” said the source. “They felt that he betrayed them and brought disgrace on the bureau by letting Hillary off with a slap on the wrist.”
The source says Comey agonized over the issue for months and even talked about it with his wife, Patrice.
Comey told Patrice the stack of resignation letters from livid agents was making him depressed, as they reminded him that morale at the bureau had hit rock bottom.
“He’s been ignoring the resignation letters in the hope that he could find a way of remedying the situation,’” said the source, according to Klein.
