Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke on Wednesday that more possible firings could result after the release of a new report by the Department of Justice concerning the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s misuse of a private email server to conduct state business.
A lot of folks involved in this mess are likely starting to sweat under the collar after hearing Sessions is going to come down hard on the individuals criticized in the report. Not a fun time to be an FBI agent.
“If anyone else shows up in this report to have done something that requires termination we will do so,” Sessions told The Hill’s Buck Sexton.
The Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) on Thursday will release a 500-page report of an investigation into the FBI’s handling of former Secretary of State Clinton’s email investigation.
The report is expected to be heavily critical of former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Comey, who was fired on May 9, 2017, will reportedly be criticized for his public statement on July 5, 2016 announcing the closure of the Clinton email probe. Lynch will reportedly be dinged over a meeting she had with former President Bill Clinton on an airplane in Phoenix in late-June 2016.
McCabe has already been criticized by the OIG for authorizing an FBI official to leak information about the Clinton investigation to a Wall Street Journal reporter in October 2016. McCabe allegedly falsely claimed in interviews with FBI and DOJ investigators that he did not authorize the leaks.
Anyone who might be doubting Sessions’ sincerity about giving people the boot would do well to remember that he accepted the recommendation that former Deputy Director of the FBI Andrew McCabe, be fired from his position. He was only two days away from retirement.
The bottom line here is that all of our actions come with consequences. If you are going to be foolish enough to illegally leak information to those who are not authorized to have it, then you deserve to lose your job. Period.
If you cannot conduct an investigation with political objectivity, and you purposefully work toward helping one candidate over another, you should be fired.
It’s really a simple matter of basic morality.
