A report that FBI agents tasked with destroying the laptop computers of Clinton aide Cheryl Mills and ex-campaign staffer Heather Samuelson, as part of immunity deals made during the initial investigation of Clinton’s email server, has added to speculation that an agent mutiny is behind the FBI’s newly reopened investigation.
Bill O’Reilly, appearing Friday as a guest on his own “The O’Reilly Factor” program, weighed in on FBI Director James Comey’s surprise announcement earlier in the day, reported Breitbart.
“Well it was quite apparent you have a series of events and it is circumstantial — so much circumstantial that Comey did not want to make this indictment,” O’Reilly said. “But the big smoking gun is that Comey did not call for a grand jury. I have spoken with dozens of FBI agents to a man who have said that is highly unusual in a complicated case like this.
O’Reilly also suggested Comey’s earlier handing of the email-server investigation had nearly caused a “mutiny” in the FBI.
