FBI Has Nowhere Near 147 Agents Investigating Hillary Clinton’s E-mail Case

Hillary Clinton

The FBI has nowhere near 147 agents investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server, sources told NBC News. 

The Washington Post first reported that 147 agents were on the case but has since revised that figure.

“The FBI will not provide an exact figure,” but there are “fewer than 50” FBI personnel involved, the Post reported.

But a former federal official with direct knowledge of the case told MNSBC that even 50 agents is an exaggeration.

“There are currently about 12 FBI agents working full-time on the case,” says the source, who would only speak anonymously about an open investigation.

The former FBU official added: “147 was such a ridiculous number,” said the source, adding that 50 also sounded unrealistic for this kind of inquiry. “You need an act of terrorism to get 50 agents working on something.”

FBI Searching for Back-Ups of Hillary Clinton’s Private E-mail Server

Now that the FBI has Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server, agents are trying to determine whether the information exists anywhere else or were backed up.

It’s part of the bureau’s investigation to determine how the former secretary of state handled classified information.

A Bloomberg reporter appeared to annoy an attorney for a company that managed Clinton’s private e-mail when asked whether the information exists elsewhere.

Bloomberg writes:

Barbara Wells, an attorney for Platte River Networks, a Denver-based company that has managed Clinton’s private e-mail since 2013, said in a phone interview Thursday that the server turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation “is blank and does not contain any useful data.” But Wells added that the data on Clinton’s server was migrated to another server that still exists. She ended the interview when questioned further, declining to say whether the data still exists on that other server and who has possession of it.

Neither Clinton nor her campaign returned phone calls to Bloomsberg.

“The data on the old server is not now available on any server or device that is under Platte River’s control,” Wells said during the interview.
