FBI Director Slams Clinton’s Claim Email Server Investigation Is a “Security Review”

FBI Director Slams Clinton’s Claim Email Server Investigation Is a “Security Review”

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.”

The Washington Free Beacon reports:

“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.

Townhall reports:

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.

Do we really want someone in the White House who has spent her life in politics finding ways out of following rules and regulations that others must follow?

The only joke here is Comey and his investigation.

The longer this goes on the more pathetically obvious it becomes that they were waiting for Hillary to safely be the nominee before announcing they weren’t going to indict her and it would be forgotten before the election.

Instead she STILL hasn’t beaten Bernie. Leading to this excessive playing for time by the FBI.

Seriously. The SECOND the government said they weren’t releasing 27 emails because they contained TS SAC materials, that should have been fucking it. Indictment the next day.

She’s guilty. It’s pathetically obvious to anybody who has ever handled classified materials. If I did what she had done I would have been court martialed within weeks and in Leavenworth long before now.

Comey is just trying to cover for the fact that Clinton very clearly KNOWS he isn’t going to indict her.

    Having been responsible for this material I can tell you the penalties are not small. That’s why they cannot indict her. It is too big. They would at a minimum have to apply prison. They won’t do that. She will never be convicted of a crime that serious. It would require Obama to pardon her. It would be a scandal all the way to the top.

      I actually kinda agree here. We are talking literally the possibility of thousands of felonies, which, if she were convicted of them, would result in her spending the rest of her natural life, plus potentially several more, in prison. The Clintons are famous for fighting dirty, and I think that means that it would be ugly, with one of the victims of that being Obama, and maybe another Lynch. Besides, his people knew or should have known about this, from emails she sent them. But, of course, he was playing golf and fund raising, with little time to actually govern, which is why this sort of thing went on.

      That is the stick, and I think the carrot might be help for Obama to get rich after he leaves office and maybe offering Lynch to keep her on as AG. Something like that.

      The reality is that this could be the biggest political scandal of the last maybe century, or at least our lifetimes, dwarfing Watergate – the Secretary of State, one of the original cabinet posts, being found guilty of one of our biggest intelligence leaks. This could damage the Democrat brand for quite some time, cementing the belief by many that they cannot be trusted with national security. And, I think with that, Obama cannot not pardon her and her minions, hopefully, for her, before trial (making any trial moot). And, since his lack of supervision (because he was playing golf and couldn’t be bothered) was one of the causes, his historic legacy would be in tatters.

    There’s good reason to indict after her nomination – it will prevent Sanders from becoming the nominee. It will also allow Obama to step in and present an alternative nominee (likely Biden), and become the party’s savior.

It’s turning into a medical crisis. Our otherwise worthless Surgeon General is going to have to certify that Comey does, or does not, have a pulse.

I started saying this months ago and I am going to start up again pushing the idea. With Russia now announcing that they have 20,000 of Hillary’s e-mails, then it becomes a self evident truth that Iran, China and who knows who else has similar stashes. It is also save to assume from Hillary’s actions (trying to destroy evidence on the server by wiping it, by hiding the existence of the server, by routinely lying about it and what was on it, by forcing the hiring of Brian Paglaino as a political appointee to manage Hillary’s e-mails, etc.) there is much material present that is very damning to Hillary. That being the case, why would anyone want to even consider, let alone vote for, a candidate who is clearly susceptible to being blackmailed by foreign powers? It leaves one with the obvious question that if Hilary was willing to sell out those in Benghazi, sell influence to so many for money, and so forth, then what concessions is she willing to make to keep her ugly secrets detailing her illegal activity that could destroy her from becoming pubic?

    Why would anyone in their right mind want to work for her? The potential for becoming embroiled in a scandal or criminal activity is a real threat for anyone working closely with her. And as an underling, it is more likely to be damaging to one’s own career than to Hillary’s.

Makes no diff. With the Clintons, if the Clintons did it, no matter what it was, it’s not a problem.

Please, DEAR GOD! Prosecute HRC! This nation will not survive another Clinton Presidency, nor a Trump Presidency. Biden is a joke. Bernie Sanders is the last saving grace for the United States. We are in the midst of a Political Revolution. Do not try to think that you will be able to avoid the inevitable. My fears of what’s to come from the dismissal of millions of disenfranchised Americans is that if the Revolution is ignored by the government it could potentially escalate into a Civil War. There are no foreseeable alternatives to the eventual. In my community I have lived among opposing factions that have been warning of Civil War and that they have only been waiting for the right political atmosphere to tip the scales. I have been warned to be prepared and to choose wisely, that they will have no mercy to those who sympathize with the wrong side. Director Comey, as head of the Bereau, should be aware of these factions as they have been covertly recruiting for more than two decades.

    “Bernie Sanders is the last saving grace for the United States.”

    LOL, a committed communist is our “last saving grace”. It’s worked so well everywhere it’s been tried. Especially if you like death and destruction.

    ” I have been warned to be prepared and to choose wisely, that they will have no mercy to those who sympathize with the wrong side.”

    Dude, put down the bong. Your side, the bernies, are ill equipped to do anything more than take a handout. Our side is armed. It will be a short war.

      Exactly right, Barry, on both counts. Commies raving about a “revolution” cum civil war is bizarre and stupid on so many levels. If your ideology inherently requires the peacetime and unprovoked “merciless” treatment of anyone and everyone on the “wrong” side, you’re flat out evil.

      LG, you are deranged and deluded if you honestly believe 21st century Americans are going to be as easy to roll over as unarmed and impoverished French, Russian, Chinese, Cuban, et al were. Read up on the French revolution and insert a smarter and better armed populace who are already, quite frankly, PO’d at you nutters.

      That said and your bizarre fantasies indulged, there will be no civil war of the sort you describe. That is pure and laughable lunacy. Thanks for the giggles.
