A new Clinton email bombshell has just exploded — and it has revealed just how deep the corruption in Washington, D.C. goes.
Former Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough III shared that during his time in the Obama administration he, his family, and staff received a chilling warning from Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Straighten up… or else.
Why? Well, because McCullough played a major role in the ’emailgate’ investigation.

McCullough explained that during his tenure under Obama, his office’s independence and honest was largely dismissed by Democrats.
When the former intelligence watchdog told the Republican leadership on the Senate intelligence and foreign affairs committee that emails has surfaced on Clinton’s personal server, and those emails were passed “Top Secret” level, he faced serious political backlash.
“All of a sudden I became a shill of the right,” McCullough recalled. “And I was told by members of Congress, ‘Be careful. You’re losing your credibility. You need to be careful. There are people out to get you.’”
Then Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who recommended McCullough to the Obama administration for the job, was just as disturbed by the emails as he was.

“[Clapper] said, ‘This is extremely reckless.’ And he mentioned something about — the campaign … will have heartburn about that,” McCullough said.
McCullough said that his team were shunned after involving Clapper, and he was warned by others not to involve the Director of National Intelligence any further in his investigation.
The former Inspector General did explain though why after all the backlash he never felt safe to release the controversial information to the public.
“There was a very good reason to withhold those emails … there would have been harm to national security.”
McCullough went a step further to explain that “sources and methods, lives and operations” could be put at risk.
In August of 2015, Clinton’s campaign team shared lies with the public, “Clinton only used her account for unclassified email. When information is reviewed for public release, it is common for information previously unclassified to be upgraded to classified.”
But, McCullough wants the public to know that “there was an effort … certainly on the part of the [Clinton] campaign, to mislead people into thinking that there was nothing to see here.”
In other words, there was a cover-up. We’re pretty sure the educated citizens of American already knew that… but hearing it from the lips from the former inspector general is chilling.
In the Spring of 2015, seven senior Democrats sent a threatening letter to McCullough. They had questions for him on the impartiality of his Clinton review.
As Election Day was fast approaching, the threats did not stop for the former IG.
“It was told in no uncertain terms, by a source directly from the campaign, that we would be the first two to be fired — with [Clinton’s] administration. That that was definitely going to happen,” he said.

Doing his job meant being a independent and explaining everything to Congress-essentially, being a whistleblower.
But, unfortunately for McCullough it was all just a game for Hillary.
“This was a political matter, and all of a sudden I was the enemy.”
Over a year later, I think it is safe to save — America, we dodged a bullet by not electing Clinton!
