Not to mention they bombastic loud mouth of the south great I have my lawn here we go into the bonus hour for Thursday and as always your input. Is invited encouraged and welcome here is valued join me NBA part of the conversation. Ingles advantage talk line number 803471063. Common sense retirement planning tax the line is 71307. And my email address bomb. And 1063. WORD. Dot count it seems like more and more is coming out here. Breaking news this evening from Fox News. Apparently. Peter struck it was a busy boy. Not. Limited. To changing. And FBI director James combing his language in his famous July 5 last year TV appearance. Changing thome is a language. From grossly negligent. Which as legal implications. To Hillary did nothing wrong and this is pure as the driven snow or what or whatever the French president used. Now all. We have learned that more edits. Were made to director Komi its initial. Plan in his draft statement and they apparently were made by mr. struck. Who has a political video on again and big Hillary Clinton supporter. Catherine Herridge and AM. Intel reporter for Fox News newly released documents reveal that the NF BI director James Cummings draft statement. On May Hillary Clinton email probe was edited. Numerous times before his public announcement in ways that seemed to considerably watered down. The bureau's findings. It is not uncommon if you're gonna make a speech. You're going to make a big presentation you have an initial draft and you make changes Giorgio polish it up a little bit here or there. What you don't do is change the language to make a culpable individual appear to have done nothing wrong. Which apparently is a case here. Senator Ron Johnson Republican Wisconsin chairman of the senate homeland security committee. This evening released copies of the edits to colonies highly scrutinized statement. One showed language was changed to describe the actions of Clinton and her colleagues as extremely careless. As opposed to grossly. Negligent. This is a key legal distinction and Johnson writing about his concerns and a letter today to FBI director Christopher Wray. Who by the way I also have some doubts about. Said the original quote could be read as a finding of criminality. In secretary Clinton's handling of classified material. Anybody that's read the statute on that. It and I'm I've read an on this program numerous times it becomes. Patently obvious that Hillary violated the law. Quote the added did statement. Don't we hid the reference to gross negligence a legal threshold for mishandling classified material and instead. Replaced it with then exculpatory. Senate's another which won a decision in doing wrong. The and it's also showed that references to specific potential violations of statutes. On gross negligence of classified information and misdemeanor handling were removed. The original also said it was a reasonable way he'll likely. Then hostile actors. Gained access to then secretary of state Hillary Clinton's private email account which means. They're saying yeah it's reasonably likely than every other. In any security service on the face of the earth had already hacked her emails and was a reading them. That was changed to say that that scenario was merely possible. Instead of reasonably. Likely. The final statement also more removed a reference to the sheer volume. A classified information discussed on email. While the precise dates of the evidence and identities of the editors are not apparent from the documents. The edits appear to change the tone and substance. A director Tellme statement. In at least three respects. Senator Johnson wrote today. That includes Johnson said repeated edits to reduce secretary Clinton's culpability. In mishandling. Classified information. In summary the edits to director Comesa public statement. Made months prior to the conclusion on the FBI's investigation. Of Clinton's conduct had a significant impact on the FBI's public evaluation of the implications ever actions. Johnson continued this effort scene and a wide and they personal animus. Toward then candidate trumped by senior FBI agents leading the Clinton investigation. And their apparent desire to create an insurance policy against mr. Trump's election. Raise profound questions. About the FBI's role and possible interference in the 20s16 presidential election. And the role of the same agents in special counsel mummers investigation. By president trump. Johnson was referring to newly revealed and he dropped text messages exchanged between FBI officials who at one point. Worked on the Mahler Russia probe. Calmly delivered a statement on the Clinton case 5 July. 2016. Calling her actions extremely careless and recommending against criminal charges. And by the way it's not the FBI's job to disguise to decide whether criminal charges are brought or not. That is the job of the lawyers at the Department of Justice. The FBI is an investigative body not a prosecutorial. One. Thirteen after six or on the bottom action let's go to the phones bring in west who is in Greer hi Wes and welcomed the program. Everybody has there ever meeting on Trout you know I think he should just and the peninsula there was medal in purse intention of wrongdoing that's what can only see about Hillary now. No intentions and I'll vote for any wrongdoing at all. And if you go back and read the statute. That we are accusing her of violating. It says no where in that statute any thing about intent you either did it or you didn't and she did. Well c'mon did you know you are you know the honorary position on the definition of what is the and UConn center. What similar to it and defend it depends on me whether you're grossly negligent. Are whether you're extremely careless. Bobby and a thousand years people look back at these idiots and think could have come out there mountain think they have done and probably just be like.

Quick break here and then now right back with more. I wanna talk a little bit also about this environment. Of all these accusations he got more album come and today by the way for some well known national figures and AM tragedy that may. Are maybe not. Have resulted from not all these charges of sexual misdeeds be right back here in the body matching up. Welcome back great to have you on here on the set Thursday evening 6221. Named Bobby Mack show. We we were talking yesterday about the a never ending list of celebrities media types and news people. Now politicians. Who Ben not caught up and all these are sexual misconduct claims. Another when net now wait a last night to have a smiley. Excoriating. PBS. Late yesterday for suspending distribution of his long running. Self titled talk show saying in a FaceBook posts at the networks so called investigation into his alleged misconduct. Was biased and sloppy. Smiley whose son nightly program. Whereas aired on PBS since 2004 flatly denied. PBS's accusations and he had behaved inappropriately in the workplace. The investigation. Conducted by a PBS and Dave they say. Was well documented and and multiple instances of these kinds of things. Smiley said he never grope coerce our DNA thing inappropriate in any workplace to any workplace colleague in his career. Said he was shocked by this suspension. As senator having a consensual relationship with a colleague years ago is a staff that leads to this kind of public humiliation and personal destruction. Heaven help us. The network I said refused to review any of his personal documentation mundane they conducted arrow in fact they went to an outside firm. To add to do the investigations. Attempt smiling suspended. And even worse we talked yesterday about how dangerous the environment is becoming. Four for people as these allegations continue unabated. The death of a state representative in Kentucky who apparently committed suicide yesterday after being Q accused of molestation. Sent more shockwaves. Through a Kentucky state house already rocked by. Other sexual misconduct scandals state representative Dan Johnson 57. Appeared to have shot himself. Just days after a woman reportedly alleged he had sexually assaulted her on New Year's Day 2013. When she was seventeen. According to police in the local Carner. An autopsy was planned for later today the accusation against Johnson published Monday by the Kentucky center for investigative reporting. Which also cast doubt. On his claim that he had set up a more again ground zero after the September 11 terror attacks. According to. The it center for investigative reporting Johnson forced himself on his accuser. He said in a news conference at his church Tuesday that the claim absolutely has no merit. Adding he was very sour a full that is accuser was in this dark place in her life. The former pastor. Who reportedly called himself the Pope. Initially said that he did not remember what happened on the night in question because he had been drugged at a bar. He later backtracked and said he did recall that he never entered the accusers room. Yesterday he again denied the accusation and a fiery final FaceBook post. After Johnson's death. Louisville public media which oversees the Investigative Group said it was deeply saddened to learn of his death. And would grieve for his family friends church community and constituents. The episode unfolded. Less than two months. After at least four Kentucky lawmakers as well as the chief of staff to the states house speaker. Were linked by bell local paper the courier journal. To a confidential settlement of a sexual harassment claim by female staff member. They newspaper's report prompted Doug governor Matt Bevan and on November. To call upon every individual in the Kentucky state house involved in wrongdoing to resign. Of the five individuals named in the paper to having knowledge some wrongdoing. Representative Brian lender admitted to signing the settlement and apologize for causing grief an embarrassment. And acknowledge that he had made some mistakes. Jeff Hoover Kentucky's Republican house speaker resigned his leadership position shortly after news of the settlement came out. He acknowledged in a news conference he was wrong to send what he said was a consensual text message banter. To a female. Female colleague. So. The beat goes on. To have a smile and it and and who knows who will I be next. At tomorrow but it's. It it's a supercharged an overheated environment. In which. These allegations apparently are there are enough. Not to lead to the destruction of a career firing or what have you. And and now. We don't know if this is is what prompted. Representative Johnson suicide he reportedly and also suffered for some time I think he said in the FaceBook post from PT SD. As so that may have been a a factor in this as well but the fact that. Just just the and the knowledge that these accusations may have played a part in his death at pretty disturbing. In Omnia Tex lines 71 threes are seven Bobby when reports of state settlements have been made where does that money come from. The taxpayers while awareness any government get any money at all. Night without taxpayers. They have no budget they have no funding they have no money. So any time they make a settlement like Michelle it's your money or in the in this case. The the money in the people of the commonwealth of Kentucky. That are picking up the tab. Bobbie this is just incredible the corruption. From top down the American regular people will be so upset. So PO would if no one has held accountable. Our beliefs and the honor and truth of what's left of our system of jurisprudence. Have been shattered. One standard for those connected to the elite and a far more loose and fluid standard for we. The people. Am sad but true. Now also in on the attacks line receding Bob I think it's time I'm sorry Bob. Message to the FBI.
