The Deep State Continues To Live In The Swamp

The IG Report on the FBI’s investigation of the Hillary Clinton emails and a private server has proven that the fix was in and that the fix is still in. The contents of the report show that bias was rampant in protecting Hillary Clinton as the next President of the United States. The conclusions claim that bias played no role in how the investigation was conducted. How is that possible? The investigation did not exist in a vacuum. Read this.

Yet their analysis left out the best intent evidence, namely, Clinton’s willful setting up of a private, non-secure server system for all official business.

For his part (as I discussed in Friday’s column), IG Horowitz took the position that it was not his….
