Former US Attorney: Hillary E-Mail Investigation Reopened To Avoid Revolt In FBI, Plus Agents Refused To Destroy Cheryl Mills' Laptops

Former US attorney Joe DiGenova was on the Drive at Five with Larry O'Connor on WMAL yesterday afternoon with insight into why FBI Director James Comey reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton's e-mails.

DiGenova questioned why the phone used by Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin was not looked at earlier and went into an explanation of why Director Comey sent the letter to Congress yesterday.
"The agents came to Comey yesterday (Thursday), they told him about the new evidence. He said 'oh s...!,' and realized his goose was cooked. That this would prove conclusively that his original investigation was incompetent, and he knew the agents running the Weiner investigation would leak it, if he did not send this letter to Congress.
But that wasn't the extent to the revolt going on in the FBI, as DiGenova had even more blockbuster revelations.
"It's been reported that those laptops (from Cheryl Mills and others) were destroyed. They were not, and the reason is the FBI agents refused to do it. The laptops exist, they were not destroyed, the agents refused to destroy them. ...There is a quiet and serious revolt against the director (Comey) right now. He sent those letters today because he is in deep trouble inside the Bureau.
DiGenova said if the investigation was run properly, the Weiner phones would have been discovered earlier, if the original investigation had been run properly. He also said the bar had been set in the General Carthright case and David Petraeus case that if you lie to the FBI, you're in trouble, and that any immunity deals would become null and void if any of the players lied to the FBI agents.
