Bombshell: Obama IG Finally Goes Public with Information on Hillary’s Emails

254

A former intel chief who oversaw the 17 U.S. intelligence agencies says he was threatened and bullied for reporting concerns about Hillary Clinton’s unsecured email server.

Former Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough III is just the latest victim, but probably won’t be the last, according to Allen B. West.

From Fox News:

A government watchdog who played a central role in the Hillary Clinton email investigation during the Obama administration told Fox News that he, his family and his staffers faced an intense backlash at the time from Clinton allies – and that the campaign even put out word that it planned to fire him if the Democratic presidential nominee won the 2016 election.

“There was personal blowback. Personal blowback to me, to my family, to my office,” former Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough III said.

The Obama appointee discussed his role in the Clinton email probe for the first time on television, during an exclusive interview with Fox News. McCullough – who came to the inspector general position with more than two decades of experience at the FBI, Treasury and intelligence community – shed light on how quickly the probe was politicized and his office was marginalized by Democrats.

In January 2016, after McCullough told the Republican leadership on the Senate intelligence and foreign affairs committees that emails beyond the “Top Secret” level passed through the former secretary of state’s unsecured personal server, the backlash intensified.

“All of a sudden I became a shill of the right,” McCullough recalled. “And I was told by members of Congress, ‘Be careful. You’re losing your credibility. You need to be careful. There are people out to get you.’”

But the former inspector general, with responsibility for the 17 intelligence agencies, said the executive who recommended him to the Obama administration for the job – then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper – was also disturbed by the independent Clinton email findings.

“[Clapper] said, ‘This is extremely reckless.’ And he mentioned something about — the campaign … will have heartburn about that,” McCullough said.

He said Clapper’s Clinton email comments came during an in-person meeting about a year before the presidential election – in late December 2015 or early 2016. “[Clapper] was as off-put as the rest of us were.”

As Election Day approached, McCullough said the threats against him intensified. Hillary’s campaign told him point-blank that Clinton would fire him (an Obama appointee) as soon as she got elected president.

“It was told in no uncertain terms by a source directly from the campaign, that we would be the first two to be fired with [Clinton’s] administration,” he said.

McCullough said he was merely trying to do his job and protect national security. “I was, in this context, a whistleblower,” he recalled. “I was doing exactly what they had expected me to do … and all of a sudden I was the enemy.”

Hillary still has not been charged with any wrongdoing even though more than 2,100 classified emails passed through her unsecured personal server.

When asked what would’ve happened to him if he had done such a thing, McCullough replied: “I’d be sitting in Leavenworth right now.”
