The ‘Bleach Bit’ Computer Guy Lied to the FBI and Was Not Charged?

Obviously, the “Bleach Bit’ computer guy did not know that it was wrong to lie to the FBI. Or maybe he did not mean to do it. Or maybe had no intention of doing harm when he did it. He was Hillary Clinton’s computer guy so if she could get away with it that sort of excuse, then surely he should be allowed to skate. And he did. He was not charged with lying to the FBI. Oh! Wait! What happened to Paul Manafort? He lied and was charged? Read this.

As Written and Reported By John Sexton for Hot Air:

A computer technician who deleted Clinton emails from her server in March 2015 after a congressional subpoena had been issued for them, originally lied to the FBI during his interviews, memos show. The witness’s name was redacted from documents released by the FBI but he was identified as an employee of a computer firm that helped maintained Clinton’s email server.

His admission of false statements came one day after the Comey statement was already being drafted, investigators told The Hill.

The computer employee originally told the FBI in a February 2016 interview that he did not recall making any deletions from Clinton’s server in March 2015, FBI records show.

But then on May 3, 2016, the same employee in a subsequent FBI interview told agents he had an “oh shit moment” and in late March 2015 deleted Clinton’s email archive from the server, according to FBI documents reviewed by The Hill.

Lying to the FBI is a federal felony, a crime that former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn recently pleaded guilty to. But the FBI …..
