‘Smoking gun?’ Sharyl Attkisson shares damning edits to Comey’s original comments on Hillary scandal

Powered by Topple

In what is being called the “smoking gun that the ‘fix’ was in,” investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson tweeted what former FBI Director James Comey originally wrote in his comments on Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified emails and what his words looked like after suggested changes from an FBI reviewing official.

“Document 34: What Comey originally proposed to say about Clinton classified email, and the changes FBI reviewing official suggested,” Atkisson tweeted.


The original sentence: “There is evidence to support a conclusion that Secretary Clinton, and others, used the private email server in a manner that was grossly negligent with respect to the handling of classified information.

The edited sentence: “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate the laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in very sensitive, highly classified information.”

The difference being 10 years in a federal penitentiary?

A social media user offered a stellar explanation of just what the altered sentence achieved.

“And ‘Intent’ was not part of the relevant law. Mishandling classified information for ANY reason was a violation, & a lack of intent should have had no effect on a decision to prosecute,” the tweet read. “Comey simply invented an reason not to act. Then he watered down even that bogus explanation.”

Americans may now understand why the left is throwing everything, to include the kitchen sink, at President Donald Trump in a desperate attempt to remove him from office. As the fact that all of this occurred under the tutelage of their messiah, Barack Obama, is not lost on them.

Here’s a sampling of the responses to the startling comparison Attkisson shared:
