In what appears to be a violation of the 1939 Hatch Act, FBI Director James Comey along with others within the Bureau may have schemed to create an October surprise with recently released emails attributed to Hillary Clinton, suggesting that they may provide information that violated national security.
I’m really not one one who promotes conspiracy theories but that’s not to say that all conspiracy theories are totally bogus.
Those who keep up with politics and the miasmic influence that underlies it know that elected officials are likely kept in check in large part by powerful secret forces deeply ingrained in the system to ensure a powerful elite effect outcomes that benefit them. Tom Engelhart discussed this in great length in his 2014 book, Shadow Government: Surveillance, Secret Wars, and a Global Security State in a Single-Superpower World
Though always suspected by some, the truth about such control came out for many after former FBI director J. Edgar Hoover died and it was revealed that he kept secret files on all the presidents and other selected individuals to who might influence events not to his liking, primarily holding on to his position as FBI Director
The CIA, Homeland Security, the NSC and the military have dark clandestine units that not even the Congress that funds them are totally aware of. They simply take them at their word that what they do is in the “national interests”.
This idea of course has itself been considered a conspiracy theory by some but often done by high-lighting only the more irrational considerations and haven’t totally been able to convince critical-thinking people that such a likelihood doesn’t exist in some form.
This current iteration of a shadow government has been backed up by previous revelations. Perhaps the greatest exposure came during the Reagan administration. The notion of a powerful influence behind what the public sees was laid bare by the Iran-Contra hearings, where people like Ollie North intimated that he found no problem in circumventing the constitution to fight what he claimed were Nicaraguan freedom fighters.
So no, I am not overly skeptical that there may be some ultra-conservative, super-patriots within the FBI that want to foil Hillary Clinton’s attempt to preside over the Bureau they work for. In fact it would be naive to think that such a likelihood doesn’t exist.
Shortly after writing this it was revealed the FBI had completed their investigation on these extra emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer emails.
“From the moment they secured a warrant, dozens of FBI agents worked night and day to analyze a trove of messages that they thought might help advance their probe of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, according to a U.S. official. They had to use special software to sift through some 650,000 emails.
The messages, U.S. officials familiar with the case said, were either personal or duplicative of those found earlier in the investigation.
The recommendation marked the culmination of a nightmarish 10 days for the bureau.” SOURCE
