Comey: “I don’t know what that means”
Hillary Clinton and her surrogates have been describing the FBI investigation into her private email server as a “security review” or “security inquiry.” That narrative, however, has been dismantled by FBI Director James Comey.
Hillary appeared on the Today Show last month and laughed at the preposterous idea that she might be indicted and told host Matt Lauer that “there is not even the remotest chance that is going to happen” because the FBI investigation is just a “security review.”
“Do you think the FBI and the Justice Department write you a letter and say it was a misunderstanding? We’re sorry, carry on?” Lauer said.
“Well, we’re certainly going to carry on. I think it’s a security review,” Clinton said. “It is a security review and there are lots of those that are conducted in our government all the time and you don’t hear about most of them. You hear about this one because, you know, it does involve me, so that’s why it gets so much attention.”
Comey, however, said this week that he has no idea what that means in terms of the FBI.
Since the FBI launched its criminal investigation into Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s alleged mishandling and exposure of classified information through a private server, the Democrat presidential candidate and her staff have maintained the FBI is simply conducting a security review or inquiry, not a criminal investigation.
After months of staying silent surrounding the investigation, FBI Director James Comey told Fox News Wednesday that he doesn’t understand what “security inquiry” Clinton is referring to. The FBI does criminal investigations and the investigation surrounding Clinton’s personal server, on which she kept and transmitted top-secret, classified and human source information, is no exception.
“I don’t even know what that means, a ‘security inquiry.’ We do investigations here at the FBI,” Comey told Fox News’ Catherine Herridge, reiterating Clinton will not be receiving any kind of special treatment.
