It was discovered by others last week that James Baker, the former chief attorney at the FBI, was the subject of an investigation for leaking information to the press. That tidbit accidentally came out when a letter between two Republican congressmen was made public.
Don’t be shocked if it turns out to be much more.
As I reported exclusively back in October 2016, Baker was one of the four people who were present during a meeting in July of that year when it was decided not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for mishandling her emails.
Ex-FBI director James Comey, former deputy director Andrew McCabe and a technology expert were the others.
That’s the group that Comey said “unanimously” agreed not to charge Hillary, despite the fact that the rest of the investigative team wasn’t consulted and the fact that the FBI isn’t supposed to make such decisions.
