FBI INVESTIGATION SET A HIGHLY DUBIOUS PRECEDENT: Most unfortunately, the FBI’s 2016 National Security investigation of presidential nominee Hillary Clinton set a highly dubious precedent. The U.S. Congress and the Executive Branch must now take corrective steps to put proper and fitting measures in place to ensure the entire investigative process provides sound and clear findings.

The repercussions from this investigation have shaken the foundations of our democratic republic and shattered public trust in the United States government,. Former FBI Director James Comey was charged with investigating the email-related activities of a former presidential candidate and Democratic party nominee. Since Mr. Comey’s boss, former U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch, was ethically compromised, Director Comey took it upon himself to make a decision that proved to be beyond the scope of his legal and ethical authority. Given the many questions his conduct triggered, a robust peer review process must be set up to evaluate the propriety of former Director’s behavior.

INTELLIGENCE FINDINGS DEMAND ROBUST PEER REVIEW: FBI Director Comey’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s server and emails and of the Russian government’s connection with and influence upon the U.S. presidential election warranted a robust peer reviewed evaluation. This evaluation should have been undertaken by the U.S. government’s most senior investigative authorities, including DNI Director James Clapper, CIA Director John Brennan, former FBI Director James Comey, along with their respective Chief Information Officers. Evaluations and determinations should have been made concerning the handling of the server and the classified information it contained, including information designated as “confidential,” “secret,” “top secret” and “SAP” (special access program). The integrity of the investigative process, itself, also should have been evaluated for its consistency with National Security procedures and protocols. Former AG Loretta Lynch’s June 28, 2016 meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac had provided Former Director Comey with an early opportunity (4 months prior to the November presidential election) to convene meetings with Directors Clapper and Brennan and their respective CIO’s to discuss these investigations. A system needs to be in place where an Intelligence Director has clear legal and administrative avenues open for seeking direct advice and counsel from his peers or superiors in situations like the National Security investigation of Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

THE DIVIDED UNITED STATES VS. THE ESTABLISHMENT: Most importantly, the outcome of the Presidential election is indicative of We the People’s dissatisfaction with the current Democratic and Republican Party establishments. Clearly, the House and Senate approval rates have hovered around 15% - 20 % for a very long time, and this reflects that Americans are not happy at all with the way the government is being run. The election process and outcome have most definitely split the country in two.

HILLARY CLINTON PAYED THE PRICE FOR THE DNC MANIPULATION: We saw a great movement by Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump to change the culture and level of accountability within the Capitol (D.C.).. Whether one agrees with Bernie Sanders or not, Bernie Sanders was sidelined by the politics of his own Democratic party, and Hillary Clinton payed the price. Whether one agrees that the Russians directly interfered with the U.S. election process or not, the information disclosed during the campaign season has not yet been proven false. The information provided by Wiki-leaks was damning for the Democratic party, insofar as it revealed those who manipulated their side of the election in favor of Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton payed the greatest price for such disclosures, but they also led to the resignation of DNC Director, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. To ensure her success against former Candidate Bernie Sanders in light of these disclosures, Clinton’s Democratic Party establishment supporters provided her with questions before the Democratic party debates. However, the disenfranchisement of Bernie Sanders fooled no one. Although Bernie Sanders beleaguered supporters were put between a rock and a hard place, Hillary Clinton, nevertheless, paid the ultimate political price.
