FBI targets Hillary Clinton again in email investigationBaltimore Post-Examiner

Hillary Clinton faces another FBI investigation

With eleven days out to Election Day, FBI Director James Comey in an unprecedented action, sent a letter to members of Congress advising them that the FBI is once again looking into emails pertaining to Democratic Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton is now once again under investigation by the FBI.

Comey’s letter to Congress reads as follows:

“In previous congressional testimony, I referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton’s personal email server. Due to recent developments, I am writing to supplement my previous testimony.

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.

“Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work. I believe it is important to update your Committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony.”

Comey came under scrutiny in July of this year after he announced that there would be no criminal prosecution of Hillary Clinton even though he told the American people that, “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information.”

“There is evidence to support a conclusion that any reasonable person in Secretary Clinton’s position, or in the position of those government employees with whom she was corresponding about these matters, should have known that an unclassified system was no place for that conversation. In addition to this highly sensitive information, we also found information that was properly classified as Secret by the U.S. Intelligence community at the time it was discussed on email.”

“None of these emails should have been on any kind of unclassified system, but there presence is especially concerning because all of these emails were housed on unclassified personal servers not even supported by full-time security staff.”

“With respect to potential computer intrusion by hostile actors, we did not find direct evidence that Secretary Clinton’s personal email domain, in its various configurations since 2009, was successfully hacked. But given the nature of the system and the actors potentially involved, we assess that we would be unlikely to see such direct evidence. We do assess that hostile actors gained access to the private commercial email accounts of people with whom Secretary Clinton was in regular contact from her personal account. We also assess that Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email domain was both known by a large number of people and readily apparent. She also used her personal email extensively while outside the United States, including sending and receiving work-related emails in the territory of sophisticated adversaries. Given that combination of factors, we assess it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal email account.”

Hillary Clinton came under attack, first because it was now evident that she wasn’t telling the truth for the past year prior to Comey’s statement.

As if that wasn’t enough she wanted the American people to believe that as a former first lady, a former Secretary of State, a former U.S. Senator and a former attorney that she was not at the very least incompetent and at the same time negligent.

Since that time we have learned that besides compromising national security by using a personal server in her own home while Secretary of State, evidence was destroyed, bleached out and hammered away by her colleagues while she was still under investigation by the FBI and Congressional inquiry.

Sounds more like a criminal conspiracy than anything else.

Fact of the matter is nothing in the Clinton email investigation passed the smell test to those of us on the outside looking in objectively.

To make matters even worse we were led to believe that nothing was afoot when Bill Clinton met with Attorney General Loretta Lynch or when the integrity of the FBI was questioned when emails surfaced about an alleged quid pro quo request.

The sad truth is that the answer of many politicians who should know better is that this is nothing short of partisan politics and an attack on the Democratic candidate for President.

Doing what is right seems to have gone out the window with their own integrity.

The question should be is this not an attack on our democratic process should a crook be elected to the highest office in this country should Hillary Clinton become the next President.

Putting all the revelations aside that have come to light this past year on Clinton, I still can’t seem to forget what then Deputy Special Counsel to the Senate Whitewater Committee, James Comey concluded in 1996 when he stated that, “Hillary Clinton was personally involved in mishandling documents and ordered others to block investigators who were working on the case. Her behavior fit into a pattern of concealment: she and her husband had tried to conceal their roles in two other matters under investigation by law enforcement. Taken together, the interference by White House officials, which included destruction of documents, amounted to “far more than just aggressive lawyering or political naiveté. It constituted a highly improper pattern of deliberate misconduct.”

We should all as Americans be asking ourselves, shouldn’t Hillary Clinton be held accountable for her own past and present actions and will the American people elect another President who will bring shame and disgrace to this country as was the case with Richard Nixon and Bill Clinton.
