FBI Director: No Deadline for Clinton Email Investigation

FBI Director: No Deadline for Clinton Email Investigation

Convention or no

The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email account and home-brewed server won’t be wrapping up anytime soon. Nor is the Democratic convention a consideration in the timeliness of the investigation.

NBC reported FBI Director James Comey’s remarks Thursday afternoon:

Asked about the case today at a security conference in London, he said, “Somebody asked me if the Democratic National Convention is a hard stop or a key date for you? Are you doing this aimed at that? And I said, no.

“We aspire to do all our investigations in two ways — well and promptly, especially investigations that are of great interest to the public. We want to do them promptly.

“I get that people care about this investigation, and so we’re working very hard to ensure it’s well and promptly. But as between the two, if we have to choose, we will do it well. But again we aspire to do it well and promptly.”

Comey repeated what he has said before, that he is “personally close to this investigation, because I want to ensure that we have the resources, the people, the technology, and the space to do those things, and to do it in the way I hope we do all our work, which is competently, honestly, and independently. And I’m confident that it’s being done that way.”

Earlier this year, reports indicated 147 FBI agents were assigned to Clinton’s case who were, “hurrying to avoid announcing any action in the case too close to the presidential election.”

Cruising through the primary and possibly the convention without a clue as to when or if the FBI might take action could be disastrous for Hillary’s campaign. Beyond the campaign implications, should the FBI conclude their investigation and find cause for indictment after the Democratic National Convention, the Democratic party may be left scrambling for a presidential nominee — one not elected by one single delegate.

This is crap – they have more evidence then needed. This is going to get dragged out and she’ll never be indicted.

    It depends on who is elected. If a Dem, then no. If Trump, probably not (he said he didn’t think it would happen. That’s not the sign of someone eager to prosecute Hillary).

    Only Cruz has promised to prosecute her.

      No one should be promising anything until the investigation is over. I don’t want a President who interferes with criminal prosecutions in any case.

      If we get rid of the leftists at Justice and fill the ranks with professionals instead of political hatchet-men, we can rebuild confidence in the system and have faith in the results. I have no confidence Trump would or could do this; he tends to surround himself with sleazy fixers and corrupt power-brokers.

    The FBI doesn’t take the word of kibitzing laymen as evidence, thank God.

    Then first question isn’t whether she will be indicted, but whether the FBI brings criminal referrals. When they put over 100 agents on a case, they typically expect multiple referrals against multiple defendants.

    If they bring referrals against her and DOJ doesn’t take it to a Grand Jury – or if they punt at the GJ, about the only way it would fail to indict – I expect Comey and his top leadership to resign, at least a dozen and perhaps several dozen agents. It would be evidence of cover-up, the biggest scandal since the Saturday Night Massacre.

Two thoughts…

1. the FBI statement is exactly correct. No political considerations

2. that is the MOST ghastly photo of Ol’ Walleyes I’ve even seen!

    I had an old catcher’s mitt as a kid, used it for about five seasons until one time I left it out in the rain and it got sopped. I threw it in the trunk of my dad’s 78 couger and forgot about it. Several years later I found it and I swear it looked EXACTLY like that old lying hag’s face…a tired old catcher’s mitt. At least that catcher’s mitt wasn’t a lying fucking whore.

I think we are being played.

tick… tick… tick…

The suspense and stress in Hillary’s head must be agonizing.
…constantly looking over her shoulder… not knowing when a shoe will drop and derail her accustomed lifestyle.

How does this sound for a theory:

The investigation continues until the election. If Hillary wins, suddenly the investigation didn’t find anything worth an indictment and the whole thing gets sealed up in a “And if you talk about it, we’ll put you in jail for a lifetime” box. If Hillary loses, sometime in that last month between the R being elected and taking office, she gets a recommendation from the FBI to be fined and lightly slapped on the wrist, no jail time, a couple of thousand dollars, and losing her security clearance for a year. In both cases, it’s ‘done,’ case closed, anybody who wants to open it up again will get “Double-jeopardy” screamed at them and most of the case files will go straight into the shredder before January 2017.

Sound about right?

It is going to be a political decision by Obama and Lynch. If Hillary looks like she’s gonna lose, then O will drop the hammer. I suspect Hillary will not select a running mate more promising than herself and Bernie will ge told to pound sand and take the little lady for a second honeymoon in Moscow.

In Obama’s Administration, sadly this is an Inconvenient Truth.

One can only hope that the FBI is not in the game of stalling until the election is over and if this happens to be the case, then justice and the rule of law in America are a thing of the past. From everything I have heard about James Comey, this should not be the reason for the extremely long investigation.
>
A more likely reason was to why the FBI is taking so long is that they know and understand that Hillary is a high price target and they must be certain that they have a sound case based on sound evidence that is above reproach for, once they recommend indictment, they can expect to be seconded guessed and damned to death.
< But there is likely another reason for this delay and this other reason is confirmed by the huge numbers of people and resources being used, That reason is that when this is all over, the FBI will not recommend an indictment on the charge of mismanagement of classified material. Their recommendation will be to indicted for the classified material mismanagement, corruption, racketeering, conspiracy, perjury, destruction of evidence and probably many other charges. Additionally, there will multiple counts, possibly even hundreds of counts, on many of these charges. In essence, the FBI is likely preparing a recommendation to indict based on so much that Hillary has done illegally that no sane person could argue that it was either untrue or trivial. But then again, this will not stop the Democrat zealots from doing just that.

I’m shocked – SHOCKED, I tell you! And I’m wearing my shocked face!

” …..the Democratic party may be left scrambling for a presidential nominee — one not elected by one single delegate.” Just what “the Indian” will be waiting for. Remember she has not endorsed anyone yet so she must have information not available to the mortal man.
