John Giacalone to testify next week on why FBI stopped investigating Hillary Clinton
John Giacalone, pictured above, will testify under oath next week before the Senate Judiciary Committee. He led the FBI's investigation into Hillary Clinton's mishandling of top secret information.
She was accused of espionage, theft of government property, and obstruction of justice.
The FBI investigates federal crimes.
The FBI caused Giacalone to retire when the agency stopped investigating Hillary Clinton, according to Judge Andrew Napolitano.
Giacalone said the investigation into Hillary was going "sideways" or "nowhere by design."
Giacalone retired on Feb. 28th, 2016.
Giacalone specialized in field work. He was Executive Assistant Director of the National Security Branch for the FBI and reported to James Comey and Andrew McCabe.
Comey was former FBI Director. McCabe was former Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI's District of Columbia's Field Office.
Comey and McCabe never worked in the field.
On July 5th, 2016, Jim Comey said the FBI would file no charges against Hillary Clinton.
According to Thomas Paine of True Pundit, Terry McAuliffe’s $700,000 in contributions to Dr. Jill McCabe’s campaign were made when the FBI was investigating Hillary.
No contributions were made prior to the FBI’s probe of Clinton.
Terry McAuliffe with Hillary Clinton
McAuliffe was Governor of Virginia when Jill McCabe was running for office.
He was Chairman of the Democratic National Committee from 2001 to 2005, Co-Chairman of President Bill Clinton's 1996 re-election campaign, and Chairman of Hillary Clinton's 2008 Presidential Campaign.

Charles McCullough, Inspector General of the Intelligence Community, issued a July 6, 2015 report triggering a full-scale FBI investigation that opened four days later. The target was Hillary Clinton and her key aides. The subject was mishandling of classified information.
An Inspector General (IG) is assigned to every federal agency. Their job is to investigate fraud, waste, and abuse within their assigned agency. The IG can refer for prosecution. Only the Justice Department can prosecute.
Since Giacalone retired and is no longer a federal employee, he was unable to be questioned by the Office of Inspector General. The IG's Office can only question federal employees.
Michael Horowitz is IG for the Justice Department.
