Fox News: Contacts in the FBI and DOJ are 'Super Pissed Off' at the White House

FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee in December that the president does not receive briefings on the investigation, so he would have no way of knowing how serious it is.

Comey said, "anybody's view about an investigation they're not involved in is irrelevant. We care about finding out what is true and doing that in a competent, honest and independent way. I promise you that’s the way we conduct ourselves.”

By a strange coincidence, Friday morning on MSNBC's  Morning Joe, the panel discussed the latest scuttlebutt on the FBI investigation, and what the White House knows.

Bloomberg Politics Managing Editor Mark Halperin told Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski that “there are some people in the White House who are starting to talk about this.”

Halperin said though it is unclear to him whether White House officials know what is happening, “the body language among some Obama Administration official is, ‘This is more serious, and something’s gonna happen.’”

So, according to Washington insider Mark Halperin, the White House knows full well how serious the situation is for Hillary, yet Josh Earnest was sent out there to offer this Gruberesque nonsense: "Some officials have said she is not the target of the investigation and it does not seem to be the direction in which it is trending."

Strange days.
