After Clinton-Lynch Tarmac Meeting, FBI Scrambled to Find and Punish Source, Emails Show
Newsweek ^ | December 15, 2017 | By Max Kutner

After news broke about an airport meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton in the midst of last year’s presidential campaign, the FBI scrambled to identify the source who leaked details about the encounter and discipline him or her, according to emails released on the FBI website on Friday.

The internal emails show that on June 29, 2016, a senior spokeswoman for the Justice Department emailed her counterparts at the FBI to flag articles that were starting to appear about the meeting. In the email, the spokeswoman, Melanie Newman, described the encounter as “a casual, unscheduled meeting.” She provided talking points, which are redacted in the released version.

That same day, multiple FBI officials sent links about the story to Comey, who responded to one email, “Got it, thanks sir.” Also on those email chains were FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, whom President Donald Trump and others have accused of a pro-Clinton bias because his wife received money for a political campaign from entities associated with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally; and Peter Strzok, who was removed from special counsel Robert Mueller’s team because of text messages critical of Trump. Strzok oversaw the Clinton email investigation.

Glad to hear the FBI thought its primary mission was to protect the Democrats. Nice.

It’s not a crime if a Democrat does it.

Finally, a leak the FBI finds unacceptable.

"The FBI covering for the Clintons."

Not Comey's first rodeo for that.

[the Deep State Democrats scrambled to identify the leaker who ratted out Hillary’s co-conspirators Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton and make sure they paid for their betrayal of Her Pantsuitness.]

(There. Fixed it.)

To fix the FBI:
1. Send them all out to the parking lot or put on home leave.
2. call them back in one at a time only after you are sure they are working to protect only the US people and US laws (not the Clintons)
3. tell those not called back in three days to go find jobs elsewhere
NOTE: this would also relieve the overage of personnel in the FBI

Imagine if you will, it was the Republicans who were in power and the FBI did as they had done to cover Hillary for a Republican candidate. By now those in the FBI would be called Himmler or Beria. (Most likely not Beria, they don’t normally like to compare anyone with the Russian commie types.)
