Amidst all the controversies surrounding Hillary Clinton, James Kallstrom, the former assistant director for the FBI, likened the actions of her and her family to those of an organized crime syndicate.
Kallstrom made his statements against the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee during an interview with John Catsimatidis for the radio program “The Cats Roundtable.” The ex-FBI assistant director, who attracted the attention of the public by leading the investigation on TWA flight 800 explosion around two decades ago, claimed that the Clintons operate like a crime family.
“The Clintons, that’s a crime family, basically,” he told Catsimatidis. “It’s like organized crime. I mean the Clinton Foundation is a cesspool.”
Although Kallstrom did not go into detail regarding the controversy surrounding the Clinton Foundation, he was probably referring to the allegations of bribery. As stated in various reports, Virginia Governor Terry McAuilffe, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee and a board member of the Clinton Foundation, allegedly bribed the wife of FBI official Andrew McCabe in the form of campaign funds in an attempt to sway the agency’s investigation regarding the foundation’s financial crimes and Hillary’s private email server, according to the Wall Street Journal.
On the subject of the email controversy, Kallstrom noted that even though the FBI carried out an investigation earlier this year, it was soon closed after a couple of months. He claimed that at that time, top FBI officials held back in probing into the matter, which was the reason why Hillary was not indicted even though the evidence regarding her camp’s use of a private email server to contain classified information was strong.
He also blamed Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who was nominated by President Barack Obama for the position in 2014, for impeding the FBI’s investigations.
“The problem here is this investigation was never a real investigation,” Kallstrom said. “That’s the problem. They never had a grand jury empaneled, and the reason they never had a grand jury empaneled, I’m sure, is Loretta Lynch would not go along with that.”
“God forbid we put someone like that in the White House,” he added.
