FBI director James Comey's close relationship with Israel gave him "prosecutor's block" by Wayne Madsen Report

 FBI director James Comey's close relationship with Israel gave him "prosecutor's block"

FBI director James Comey's decision not to recommend a criminal indictment of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for placing in jeopardy classified information that reached the "above top secret" level of Sensitive Compartmented Information of "SCI" came amid evidence that "hostile" foreign intelligence actors likely gained access to Mrs. Clinton's unsecured email servers. There are some reports that contained in Clinton's servers were SCI information at the SI-Gamma level, meaning Special Intelligence within the Gamma signals intelligence-related compartment. Comey, who never misses an opportunity to warn against nebulous "Russian and Chinese" hackers, made it a point in his announcement about no prosecution of Clinton to merely reveal that Clinton's email servers were vulnerable to foreign hostile actors. As WMR previously reported, Comey's reluctance to name the foreign intelligence agencies was due to credible reports that Israel was among the hostile nations that had routinely accessed classified and sensitive information on the private Clinton servers.

On November 25, 2013, various wire services reported that Comey and then-National Security Agency director General Keith Alexander paid a secret visit to Israel. Neither the FBI, NSA, nor the U.S. embassy in Tel Aviv provided a reason for the visit. Israeli television reported the two were in Israel to attend a U.S.-Israeli air force training exercise in southern Israel. However, military exercises are not in the purview of the FBI director.

Comey, it turns out, also has a close personal relationship with Israel. Before becoming FBI director in 2013, Comey, a native of Yonkers, New York, was a 
Senior Research Scholar and Hertog Fellow on National Security Law at Columbia Law School in New York. The fellowship was endowed by New York financier Roger Hertog, a funder of various neo-conservative causes, including the American Enterprise Institute. Hertog also was a part owner of the defunct neo-con newspaper, The New York Sun. Hertog is also a backer of various Zionist operations, which, in addition to his Hertog Foundation, includes the Tikvah Fund, founded by Orthodox Jewish billionaire Zalman (Sanford) Bernstein, and the Shalem Center in Jerusalem. The Shalem Center promotes the right-wing policies of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. Hertog has served as chairman and CEO of Sanford Bernstein, Inc., a major Wall Street hedge fund.

What part of "Not Releasable to Foreign Nationals" does Israel's friend Comey not understand?

In 2015, Comey spoke at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington and included Poles and Hungarians, along with Germans, as being responsible for the Holocaust. Comey spoke on the occasion of the museum's annual bestowing of the Elie Wiesel Award. Although he was condemned by some quarters for his inclusion of Poles and Hungarians, Comey's rhetoric was in keeping with the Zionist revisionism of World War II parlayed by his friends at the Shalem Center and the Hertog Foundation. Comey has made mandatory for all new FBI agents and intelligence analysts, attendance at the museum's 
"Law Enforcement and Society: Lessons of the Holocaust" training program. Obviously, the training does not include an awareness of the threat posed to U.S. national security by Israeli cyber-intruders, such as those Comey is well aware of having accessed Clinton's email servers.

Comey gave Clinton a free pass because Israel was one of three foreign intelligence actors that gained access to her email servers. One sure way to get an FBI official to drop a criminal case is to mention the word "Israel."
In a related development, Columbus, Ohio attorney Cliff Arnebeck, who oversaw litigation against the state of Ohio for its awarding of its 20 electoral votes to George W. Bush in 2004 amid documented evidence of election tampering, fired off a July 7 letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch over her decision to drop the Justice Department's criminal probe of Mrs. Clinton.
WMR has also learned that top Israeli interlocutors in Washington and New York have reacted extremely negatively to WMR's report on Mrs. Clinton's servers being accessed by Israeli intelligence. However, the report has been afforded great credence by some foreign intelligence agencies that are not as beholden to Israeli interests as is Comey's FBI.
