(Natural News) Some new details about the 2016 “October Surprise” involving former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails on New York Representative Anthony Weiner’s laptop have recently come to light, and they indicate there was a lot more to the story than the public knows. The FBI agent who discovered Hillary Clinton’s emails on Anthony Weiner’s laptop says that he was told by his bosses that he should erase his own computer after the discovery so there would be no record of his investigation.
This information came to light in a book called October Surprise: How the FBI Tried to Save Itself and Crashed an Election.
In the book, FBI agent John Robertson alleges that the FBI did not do anything for a month after discovering Hillary Clinton’s emails on the laptop. As you may recall, Weiner was married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin at the time; they later divorced in the aftermath of a sexting scandal involving Weiner and underage girls.
Robertson’s discovery came while he was working on the Weiner case. During his investigation of the congressman’s computer, he discovered thousands of emails from Hillary Clinton and blew the whistle on the coverup of evidence by fired FBI Director James Comey, fired FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok.
He later told Justice Department investigators: “The crickets I was hearing was really making me uncomfortable because something was going to come down.”
“Like if I’m the supervisor of any [counterintelligence] squad … and I hear about this, I’m getting on with headquarters and saying, ‘Hey, some agent working child porn here may have [Hillary Clinton] emails. Get your ass on the phone, call [the case agent], and get a copy of that drive,’ because that’s how it should be.”
He added that he still doesn’t understand why nobody reached out to him about it immediately. He said that he has “deep misgivings” about the FBI’s response to the congressional investigation into the Clinton emails.
“Put simply: I don’t believe the handling of the material I have by the FBI is ethically or morally right. But my lawyer’s advice — that I simply put my SSA on notice should cover me — is that I have completed CYA [Cover Your Ass], and I have done so.”
He added that Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Kramer told him that if he blew the whistle, he would be prosecuted.
What was on the laptop?
Others familiar with the situation believe that the contents of the laptop were very shocking in nature. The founder of private military company Blackwater, Erik Prince, told Breitbart Radio that an NYPD investigation of the Weiner sexting scandal found State Department emails and information implicating Clinton in money laundering. He also says there is evidence that she went to a “sex island” with Jeffrey Epstein at least six times and that Bill Clinton visited the island more than 20 times.
“The amount of garbage that they found in these emails, of criminal activity by Hillary, by her immediate circle, and even by other Democratic members of Congress was so disgusting they gave it to the FBI, and they said, ‘We’re going to go public with this if you don’t reopen the investigation and you don’t do the right thing with timely indictments.”
However, the politically biased FBI ultimately recommended that criminal charges not be filed against Clinton and her aides for mishandling classified information. We still don’t know what happened to the emails, Clinton has never been charged for her illegal activities, and federal agencies continue to engage in coverups and intimidate people into keeping quiet.
