How An FBI Nothingburger Is Chewed

Secret Recordings Fueled FBI Feud in Clinton Probe - WSJ:

...The FBI had secretly recorded conversations of a suspect in a public-corruption case talking about alleged deals the Clintons made, these people said. The agents listening to the recordings couldn’t tell from the conversations if what the suspect was describing was accurate, but it was, they thought, worth checking out.

Prosecutors thought the talk was hearsay and a weak basis to warrant aggressive tactics, like presenting evidence to a grand jury, because the person who was secretly recorded wasn’t inside the Clinton Foundation...
Gee, do you think somebody whose gonads are in a vise might just tell the people who make him a deal a little fairy tale? Naw. Never happen.
