A central figure appears within the special counsel. A man who had once unfettered access to files from the FBI and enormous influence. The head of the FBI, James Comey, who played the role of investigator and judge in the Clinton case with respect to her use of an illegal server. After 13 minutes of him giving a logical course for indictment he made the claim, "no reasonable prosecutor" would take her case. He indicated that she had been "extremely careless" with respect to her emails, but that there was no intent to break the law.
For the record, "extremely careless" is synonymous to "grossly negligent", but the latter carries legal ramifications. The changing of the wording done by Peter Strzok (another familiar name) used in the statement issued at the infamous Comey press conference is significant. It is apparent this was purposely done to avoid qualifying any of Hillary's actions as technically illegal. "Extremely careless" is considered to be a casual expression, where as "gross negligence" is a very specific legal definition.
President Trump fired James Comey based on a letter written by Rod Rosenstein that made the recommendation for his termination from his position from the FBI due to insubordination; acting as FBI director and in the capacity of Attorney General. Comey's elimination was deemed necessary to restore confidence back to the FBI mainly because of his mishandling of the Clinton investigation, and where pre-determined outcomes regarding her email handling influenced his making a judicial call with respect to it.
Comey was outraged over his firing, and had decided to use his political pull and FBI contacts to take down the President. James Comey admitted to Congress under oath that he had leaked memos he had of conversations with the president when he was still head of the FBI. He gave those memo's to a friend with the intent that they be leaked in order to prompt appointing a special counsel. To add insult to injury of in the faith that the FBI was acting as an independent counsel on the special counsel, Comey was advised by theFBI to seek Mueller advice before testifying before Congress. This provides evidence that there is coordination between James Comey and the Mueller investigation.
If the FBI wasn't conflicted enough with the Clinton investigation, they are even more tied up with the special counsel under direction of Robert Mueller. As Gregg Jarrett , legal analyst points out: "The very people who cleared Clinton of crimes – despite strong evidence that she broke the law – also assumed unfettered authority over the so-called “collusion” investigation to determine if Donald Trump’s presidential campaign worked with Russia to help Trump become president."
James Comey and Robert Mueller have had a long history of working together. Their relationship isn't some loosely fitting work relationship as the media would have you believe. In fact, according to the Huffington Post . "Mueller as FBI Director and James Comey as Deputy Attorney General, both presided over post-9/11 cover-ups and secret abuses of the Constitution, enabled Bush-Cheney fabrications to launch wrongful wars, and exhibited plain vanilla incompetence.
James Comey has been a long time critic of the President and has declined any responsibility in the lack of confidence the American public has in the Bureau reputation. When asked by a reporter after a closed door hearing by the House Judiciary and Oversight committee if he “shared any of the responsibility” for the decline in the FBI’s reputation as an unimpeachable, non-partisan agency, Comey answered simply: “No.”
“The FBI’s reputation is taking a big hit because the president has lied about it constantly. A whole lot of people who watch your network [Fox News] believe that nonsense. That’s a tragedy that will be undone eventually, but that damage has nothing to do with me,” he added.
