The Washington Post published an in depth look at the ongoing Hillary Clinton email scandal, which contains a stunning revelation – there are 147 FBI agents currently assigned to the investigation!
Robert O’Harrow reports, “One hundred forty-seven FBI agents have been deployed to run down leads, according to a lawmaker briefed by FBI Director James B. Comey. The FBI has accelerated the investigation because officials want to avoid the possibility of announcing any action too close to the election.”
For a story that Clinton’s defenders are trying to paint as a right-wing conspiracy and a nonissue, that certainly appears to be a large number. O’Harrow notes that the FBI seeks to end the investigation well before the general election in November.
