Editor’s Note: This post was based on material from the U.K. Daily Mail. The Daily Mail has taken down its report. On Wednesday, the New York Post published a report stating that the identification of an FBI agent, which had been picked up by numerous news outlets, was erroneous.
Another FBI agent who was mentioned as having sent obscene text messages in the inspector general’s report has been newly identified as 44-year-old Sally Moyer, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
Moyer was originally identified as “Agent 5” in the report. A series of messages between her and “Agent 1” — with whom she was romantically involved and has since married — had her saying “f*** trump” and calling his supporters “retarded.”
What could be most disturbing, however, is what she did. According to the report, Moyer was a member of the filtering team — a group of personnel who determined what information from Clinton’s devices could be used in the investigation of her use of a private email server when she was secretary of state.
“Agent 1’s duties included conducting witness interviews and Agent 1 was one of the two agents who interviewed former Secretary Clinton on July 2,” the inspector general’s report read.
“Agent 5 is also an experienced counterintelligence agent and was a member of the Midyear filter team. As a member of the filter team, Agent 5 was responsible for identifying privileged communications among the materials obtained by the FBI to ensure that they were not reviewed by the investigative team. Neither Agent 1 nor Agent 5 was assigned to the FBI’s Russia investigation or the Special Counsel investigation.”
While Moyer’s name was originally withheld, she was identified by GOP Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina during a congressional hearing.
According to the Daily Mail, Moyer is a registered Democrat who has been with the bureau since 2006. One conversation with Agent 1 involved the latter complaining about work.
“I find anyone who enjoys [this job] an absolute f****** idiot. If you dont think so, ask them one more question. Who are you voting for? I guarantee you it will be Donald Drumpf,” Agent 1 wrote in the text message on Aug. 29, 2016.
“that’s so sad and pathetic if they want to vote for him,” Moyer responded. “someone who can’t answer a question … someone who can’t be professional for even a second.”
Then came a Sept. 9 exchange where Moyer wrote, “i’m trying to think of a ‘would i rather’ instead of spending time with those people.”
“stick your tongue in a fan??” Agent 1 responded.
“i would rather have brunch with trump,” Moyer said. “i would rather have brunch with trump and a bunch of his supporters like the ones from ohio that are retarded.”
On Election Day, Moyer texted that Hillary Clinton had “better win… otherwise i’m gonna be walking around with both of my guns.”
“and likely quitting on the spot,” she added, also making sure to get in a “screw you trump.”
In December, that had upped itself to “f*** trump.”
But, according to Justice Department Inspector General Michael Horowitz, there was no bias demonstrated in the report. None whatsoever. Even though this woman — a registered Democrat — determined what information could and could not be used in the Clinton investigation. No bias to be found.
If you’ll excuse me, I’m just going to go and hit my head against the wall. If it doesn’t end up relieving my frustration, at least I’ll be well on my way to being as dense as everyone who keeps on saying the IG report proves the FBI was completely unbiased.
