OCTOBER 28, 2016 : (JUST AFTER JAMES COMEY SENDS LETTER TO CONGRESS ANNOUNCING THE REOPENING OF THE CLINTON EMAIL INVESTIGATION, FBI ATTNY #2 CLINESMITH ENGAGES IN INSTANT MESSAGE EXCHANGES WITH 4 OTHER FBI EMPLOYEES -— ) The first exchange highlighted by Horowitz occurred on Oct. 28, 2016, just after FBI Director James Comey sent a letter to Congress announcing the reopening of the Clinton email investigation. Clinesmith messaged a total of four FBI employees expressing his frustration, telling two of them, I mean, I never really liked the Republic anyway.
As I have initiated the destruction of the republic ... Would you be so kind as to have a coffee with me this afternoon? Clinesmith asked a third FBI employee.
And Clinesmith told a fourth FBI employee, Im clinging to small pockets of happiness in the dark time of the Republics destruction.
In his attempt to explain these texts to Horowitz in 2018, Clinesmith said he was expressing his annoyance with what he saw as the FBI treating the Clinton email investigation more harshly than the Trump-Russia investigation. He continued to say he didnt let it impact his work.
Its like, in terms of, of, you know, whats not in here too is like, you know, we, at that point we had investigation, the Russia investigation was ongoing as well. And that information was obviously kept close hold and was not released until March, Clinesmith said. So, you know, it, it was just kind of frustration that we werent handling both of them the same way with, with that level I guess. —— -—— Mueller lawyer with anti-Trump bias is ex-FBI official facing FISA criminal investigation, Washington Examiner, November 22, 2019 by Daniel Chaitin & Jerry Dunleavy
