Hillary’s campaign is in jeapordy yet again after law enforcement officials said Friday that emails found to be critical to her closed private email server investigation have been discovered on Anthony Weiner’s computer. Weiner is the estranged hunsband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. FBI director James Comey wrote a letter to congress about the emails that surfaced in an alternate investigation. Law enforcement was investigating Weiner for sexting a 15 year old girl from North Carolina when they made the discovery about emails featuring information about Hillary Clinton.
The FBI will review the emails to determine if classified information was leaked. It is unclear at this time if the emails were from Clinton’s private email server although they appear to be pertinent. Comey said he felt obligated to inform congress although the significance of the new email collection has yet to be determined. The announcement comes just eleven days before the election casting a shadow on Hillary’s use of classified information. It is currently unknown how long it will take to review the emails or if they are just duplicates that have already been reviewed. John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman is hopefull the emails will prove to be insignificant — but that’s looking doubtful at this juncture. Although this is interfering with the election, the FBI is obligated to be neutral in political matters.
The Republican National Committee is thrilled about the potential implications. They welcome the distraction as a hopeful turning point for Trump to emerge victorious over Clinton whom they’re desperately trying to keep out of the oval office citing just how bad she will be for our country. Republican committee chairman, Reince Priebus, says “The F.B.I.’s decision to reopen their criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret email server just 11 days before the election shows how serious this discovery must be. This stunning development raises serious questions about what records may not have been turned over and why, and whether they show intent to violate the law.”
Speaker Paul Ryan who is far from being a Trump fan says Hillary should’t be allowed to receive classified briefings anymore. “Hillary Clinton has nobody but herself to blame. She was entrusted with some of our nation’s most important secrets, and she betrayed that trust by carelessly mishandling highly classified information.” Said Ryan via email statement.
Clinton is calling on the FBI to release the pertinent information immediately since voting is already in progress. Her camp is hoping to make this old news by November 8th. Trump on the other hand would like to see Clinton finally brought to justice over the email ordeal. A senior law enforcement official says that Clinton aide Ms. Abedin had tens of thousands of emails on Weiner’s laptop. That is most likely where the red flags are being waved.
Trump is now very pleased with the job the FBI and DOJ are performing after being very critical in their handling of the deleted emails and private server issue. “I have great respect for the fact that the F.B.I. and the D.O.J. are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made. This was a grave miscarriage of justice that the American people fully understand. It is everybody’s hope that it is about to be corrected.”
Comey seemed aware of the fallout he faces in the letter written to congress. He said “We don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed. I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record.” Only time will tell how this fiasco will conclude. It seems Hillary is now the one keeping us all in suspense.
