A former FBI agent has detailed his actions to help former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.
Mark Felt, who was the agent who investigated Hillary Clinton for the FBI, was interviewed by The New York Times for a story on FBI corruption, and he details the events that led up to the 2016 election.
In the interview, Felt says he began investigating former President Bill Clinton after his wife, Hillary Clinton, was indicted in a scheme involving Whitewater real estate.
“I was the person who was there, with the FBI agents and other law enforcement, in the case,” Felt said.
“I was involved in the investigation, and I think we’re still looking for more evidence.”
Felt says the Clintons were also involved in a failed effort to buy the Whitewater property, and they were looking for a way to use it to avoid paying taxes for decades.
“They were looking at how to avoid having to pay taxes on the Whitwater property for decades, so they bought the Whitwaters property and they built a hotel there, so we thought that was a way they could avoid paying tax on the property for many years, and it was also a way that they could skirt the tax laws,” he said.
Felt was fired after the scandal, but he was able to get another job as a special agent with the New York City Police Department, where he helped investigate a number of cases, including the 1999 death of a man who was arrested in New Jersey.
Fetted that it was a “totally inappropriate” job, Fought for Clinton’s impeachment.
“It was a horrible thing to be involved in.
I’ve done things I regret, and what I’ve learned is that there are things that I did, that I didn’t realize that I had done, that are wrong.
But it’s not right,” Fought.
The former FBI Agent also discusses how he went to work for the Clintons after the Whitews scandal, and how they helped him learn about corruption within the FBI.
“You know, I was just in a position to have information, and that was what I was doing,” he told The Times.
“But it was just as much about the Clintons and their behavior as it was about me, and if it was me, I wouldn’t have been involved with them for so long,” he continued.
Faced with the scrutiny and scrutiny that came with the Whiteways scandal, Faught his first assignment, investigating former Arkansas Gov.
Mike Huckabee, who has since become a prominent Trump surrogate.
Faught an investigation into Huckabee’s alleged ties to the mob.
“That was a big one,” he says.
I was there on the day, and you know, it was the first time I’d been there in a long time.
I’d never been there before, and the mob was just out there.
You could see it.
And there were so many people there, they were everywhere.
And I started interviewing them.
I thought they were people who would say things, but they were just talking about what was going on, so I didn�t really understand it.”
Fought a case about the mafia in the 1980s, but in the end, it didn’t go any further.
“It was just a terrible case,” he explained.
“But it wasn’t just about a guy, and there were lots of other things going on.”
Founded a law firm, and worked on a number cases, but after a few years he left.
Fought his first case in 1986, where a judge ruled that a defendant in a New Jersey drug case should be allowed to go free on bail.
“At that point, I didn, as far as I know, seen anything in court, so when I came out of prison, I had to go into law school, and my law school degree was done, so there was no way I could have ever gone back to law school,” he added.
“And I guess I thought I would, I would get out of that place.”
Faced multiple lawsuits in the 1990s, and found himself on the losing side of many of them.
Fought another case involving a judge in Florida, where the defendant in that case had just lost his first appeal.
Fitted a new case to the judge in question, and filed an appeal, but that appeal was later dismissed.
“The judge dismissed it, and we had to come back in, and so it was, like, a really long time to come out of there,” he recalled.
“There were so few cases in that area, and as I got older, I got into a lot of trouble, and then, you know — the thing is, you’ve got to get a new job, you have to get out there, and all of a sudden I didn`t have a job.”
