Clinton Email Whistleblower Reveals That He Was Threatened With His Job

In a perfect world, those that are merely doing their jobs will not be threatened with retribution for doing what they’re supposed to be doing. Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world. As such, those that uncover precarious situations in the midst of doing their jobs can find themselves in hot water. While common sense says that it really shouldn’t be that way, reality suggests otherwise. Folks in a position of power can turn the tables awfully quickly when they’re found to have their hands in the cookie jar.

As the Daily Mail shares, Former Intelligence Community Inspector General Charles McCullough III has come forward to explain that’s what happened to him. McCullough was one of the first to expose the fact that failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton had highly sensitive emails on an unsecured server, and he was quickly made to feel as if he was the one that had done something wrong.

“I was told that we would be the first two to be fired with her administration," McCullough said during an appearance on Fox News, referring to himself and a colleague. “That, that was definitely going to happen.”

The backlash against him would only grow as primary season approached.

“All of a sudden I became a shill of the right. I was told by members of Congress, 'Be careful, you're losing your credibility. There are people out to get you,'" he recalled.

McCullough, who was charged with overseeing 17 agencies, delivered the information to then-Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who he says was also quite put off by the discovery.

“He read through these affidavits very thoroughly and he said, 'This is extremely reckless,' and he mentioned something about the campaign will have heartburn about that, or something,” he said. “He was put-off as the rest of us were.”

From that point, McCullough was essentially brushed off and marginalized.

“I was totally alone and I was told by senior official, keep the director out of it,” he continued. “There was an effort, certainly, on the part of the campaign to mislead people into thinking there is nothing to see here.”

As McCullough explains, there’s a whole lot to see here, and that makes it all the more curious as to why there were so many obvious attempts to sweep it under the carpet.

“I've heard people say this is overblown. I've heard people say this is much ado about nothing. Had the information been released it would have been harm to national security,” McCullough added.

Quite simply, there’s way too much smoke still billowing from the Clinton email scandal. Does that mean there’s a fire smoldering that has yet to be detected? It’s quite possible, and it’s high time for the entire situation to be reconciled once and for all. There have been some serious implications of a vast conspiracy here, and it’s rather stunning that a blind eye has been turned to so many red flags. If there’s really nothing to see here, it really shouldn’t be all that difficult to prove that.
