Current and former FBI officials, none of whom were willing or cleared to speak on the record, have described a chaotic internal climate that resulted from outrage over director James Comey’s July decision not to recommend an indictment over Clinton’s maintenance of a private email server on which classified information transited.
“The FBI is Trumpland,” said one current agent.
This atmosphere raises major questions about how Comey and the bureau he is slated to run for the next seven years can work with Clinton should she win the White House.
The currently serving FBI agent said Clinton is “the antichrist personified to a large swath of FBI personnel,” and that “the reason why they’re leaking is they’re pro-Trump.”
The agent called the bureau “Trumplandia”, with some colleagues openly discussing voting for a GOP nominee who has garnered unprecedented condemnation from the party’s national security wing and who has pledged to jail Clinton if elected.
As if that were not terrifying enough, it also appears that the FBI is using information gleaned from an anti-Clinton book and Breitbart news as the foundation for an investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

Throughout her campaign, Hillary Clinton has battled accusations of fostering a “pay for play” culture at the State Department, giving undue access to major Clinton Foundation donors. So far, Republicans have failed to find a smoking gun, but the narrative has served its purpose: tarnishing the public perception of the Democratic nominee and her family’s namesake charity. For this, no one deserves more credit than Peter Schweizer, Breitbart editor-at-large and the author of Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich. The controversial, mostly discredited book has been held up by many as irrefutable proof of wrongdoing, or at least common venality, by the Clintons. It also found plenty of eager readers within the Federal Bureau of Investigation, The Wall Street Journal and New York Times report, galvanizing a number of F.B.I. agents to launch an investigation into the Clinton Foundation, based mostly on assertions made by Schweizer in the book.
On Thursday, the Journal reported that last summer, shortly after Clinton Cash was published, a number of F.B.I. agents began investigating claims made against the Clinton Foundation in the book, ultimately prompting an internal battle between the agents and F.B.I. and Justice Department officials. The agents secretly recorded conversations with two informants—both of whom were involved in separate public-corruption investigations—about the Clinton Foundation, and believed that they had enough evidence to build a case. Senior officials in the F.B.I. and the Justice Department, however, were skeptical of the evidence and the primary source, Schweizer’s book. Public-integrity prosecutors reportedly “weren’t impressed” and “thought the talk was hearsay and a weak basis to warrant aggressive tactics, like presenting evidence to a grand jury, because the person who was secretly recorded wasn’t inside the Clinton Foundation,” according to the Journal’s report.
Oh for fuck's sake, they're using the Clinton Cash book as a resource? Why don't they just have Alex Jones tell them what the voices in his head are saying about the Clintons?
That book has been thoroughly refuted by reputable sources, who are NOT paid by Right Wing agitators to attack Hillary and Bill.
And it is not only that the FBI seems to be using Right Wing conspiracy theories as the foundation for their investigation, they might in fact be working in collusion with members of Trump's campaign.
Such as Rudy Giuliani.

CNN’s Don Lemon suspects that Donald Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani may have had inside information on FBI Director Comey’s announcement that he would be reexamining the Clinton emails.
“I saw something, and when I saw it, it caught my attention,” Lemon said in an interview with filmmaker Michael Moore. “I didn’t think anything of it until two days later and this was two days before the Comey announcement. This was Rudy Giuliani, watch this,” he said before rolling a clip of Giuliani on Fox News.
“I think he’s got a surprise or two you’re going to hear about in the next two days,” Giuliani said. “I’m talking about some pretty big surprises.”
“I heard you say that this morning. What do you mean?” the Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt asked.
“You’ll see,” Giuliani replied. “We’re not going to go down and we’re certainly not going to stop fighting. We’ve got a couple things up our sleeve that should turn this thing around.”
Lemon noted that two days later the Comey letter dropped to Congress. “Do you think he could have known about it?”
Seriously folks, WTF?
But hey that's not even all there is to shake your head at.
Get a load of this:
That is from an FBI Twitter account that has been dormant for a year, that suddenly sprung to life to attack the Clintons.William J. Clinton Foundation: This initial release consists of material from the FBI's files related to the Will... https://t.co/Y4nz3aRSmG— FBI Records Vault (@FBIRecordsVault) November 1, 2016
This has now resulted in the FBI investigating itself over this Twitter account.
So to sum up, we now have not only the Republican party and the Trump campaign working to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. We also have Wikileaks, the Russians, and the FBI working together to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House.
