Calls Grow for Reopening of Hillary Investigation After Comey Ouster

Calls Grow for Reopening of Hillary Investigation After Comey Ouster

Equal justice under the law.

Now that James Comey is out at the FBI, a growing chorus is suggesting that the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal should be reopened. Professor Jacobson said in a recent post:

James Comey now is fired. Loretta Lynch no longer is Attorney General. This seems to open up the possibility of a renewed investigation and potential prosecution.

Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch is now making a similar point.

Cheryl K. Chumley writes at the Washington Times:

Hillary Clinton’s email scandal — the hit that keeps on coming

Once again, Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is rocking national news.

It truly is the news hit that just keeps on coming, isn’t it?

From Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton, writing in Breitbart: “We have released 894 pages of State Department documents that include previously unreleased email exchanges in which Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin sent Clinton classified information through her insecure clintonmail.com email account.”

Come on now, Mrs. Clinton. Even for you — the queen of political scandals whose past includes everything from curiously large cattle share profits to remarkably insensitive congressional testimonies laced with “who cares” cries about truth — this scandal is long-running.

Can we at least get a solid number on how many emails sent and received during your State Department tenure put the country at security risk? That’d be good — even a ballpark figure would work at this point.

“The Abedin emails also include repeated instances of Clinton’s detailed daily schedules being sent to top Clinton Foundation officials at unsecured email addresses,” Fitton wrote.

Fitton appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show last night and expanded on this:

Andrew McCabe, the new Acting Director of the FBI testified on Thursday that Comey’s decision not to pursue prosecution of Hillary Clinton didn’t sit well with many insiders.

Adam Shaw reports at FOX News:

McCabe says FBI call not to prosecute Clinton angered some agents, defends Comey

New Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe acknowledged for the first time in public testimony Thursday that some agents were angry with the 2016 decision not to prosecute Hillary Clinton – while also defending ousted Director James Comey’s overall standing at the bureau.

“I think morale’s always been good, but there were folks within our agency that were frustrated with the outcome of the Hillary Clinton case and some of those folks were very vocal about those concerns,” McCabe testified.

McCabe stepped into the role of acting director Wednesday after Trump dismissed Comey, purportedly over his conduct during the 2016 probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state. Comey announced at a press conference last July that, despite concluding Clinton had been “extremely careless” in the handling of classified material, he would not recommend prosecution.

McCabe’s comments at the Senate Intelligence Committee hearing mark the first public recognition from the FBI that some agents were angry at the decision not to prosecute.

Everything a Clinton touches becomes toxic.

Given that Comey hid behind “intent,” which was not an element of this crime except in the case of stolen documents, they should be upset. Prosecuting her now would ignite a political firestorm – but since Trump won, Democrats go batship crazy over every issue, we might not notice the difference.

But any decision to reopen the case or Comey’s conclusion of it must come from within the FBI and in whatever process they have for such reviews, not mandated from outside.

The dems are on the offensive (Russia, Nixon II, etc.) because they fear that Hillary might now be treated properly. Comey was her shield. Bring it on FBI — restore your credibility.

News Flash: Democrats livid that Donald Trump actually took a breath of clean fresh air. Calls for a Special Prosecutor are coming from members of Congress, celebrities, and activist groups. Maxine Waters immediately calls for impeachment.

Now just think what sort of firestorm (literally in some areas) would erupt if the Wicked Witch of Chappaqua would be indicted. Comey not only fumbled the ball, he poisoned any future effort to put her in prison. Very canny.

“a growing chorus is suggesting that the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal should be reopened”

Or,

as Hillary, using words right from her own mouth, put it,

“It’s my turn. I’ve done my time, and I deserve it.”

Now if we can get her to do some real time, . . .

There’s only one man since January that has to be convinced to prosecute Hellary, and it was never Comey.

But Der Donald has nixed the idea. I’m relying on what he’s said, which could be a serious error on my part.

    Exactly. I thought before the election that, win or lose, they’d be open friends again by the end of 2017. Now that looks less likely, since she seems to be insanely positioning herself for another run, but he still likes her enough that he doesn’t want to lock her up.

    Your Fuhrer HRC deserves to spend the rest of her life in prison along with BJ.

      Ragspierre in reply to ConradCA. | May 12, 2017 at 8:15 pm

      You mean the criminal I refer to as Hellary, and whose prosecution I’ve militated for for years and years.

      You need to read, pard.

It’s not a question of reopening any investigation into Hillary’s e-mail server.

It’s a question of investigating Hillary’s crimes.

One is a mere historical detail, the other is a fundamental question of equality under the law.

There was an interesting question at yesterday’s press briefing: https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2017/05/11/press-briefing-principal-deputy-press-secretary-sarah-sanders-and

” Q Sarah, two parts of the Comey question regarding the interview the President just gave. First of all, isn’t it inappropriate for the President of the United States to ask the FBI Director directly if he’s under investigation?

MS. SANDERS: No, I don’t believe it is.

Q But one of these conversations the President said happened at a dinner where the FBI Director, according to the President, was asking to stay on as FBI Director. Don’t you see how that’s a conflict of interest — the FBI Director is saying he wants to keep his job, and the President is asking whether or not he’s under investigation?

MS. SANDERS: I don’t see that as a conflict of interest, and neither do the many legal scholars and others that have been commenting on it for the last hour. So, no, I don’t see it as an issue.”

The MSM is trying to make this to be a huge conflict, yet they were generally quiet about the possible conflict of the B.Clinton/Lynch airport meeting.

Perhaps Trump was inquiring about a potential investigation so that he could step back from any conversation if the answer was “yes”. I don’t know if that’s true, but if the MSM can throw out these “what-ifs”, then so can I.

Still have the “Hillary for Prison” bumper sticker on my pickup I put there in September. I was thinking last week its a little overdue to come off, I think I’ll leave it on for awhile longer now.

The firing of James Comey terrifies the Dems, Liberals and Progressives. The reason for that is because he was the last remaining bulwark protecting the Obama legacy.

At the moment, we have the Trump/Russia collusion “scandal”. While all the rage among the Dems, media and anti-Trumpers, it is never going to go anywhere. The investigation has been ongoing for almost a year and, so far, NO evidence has been produced that will support the claims made. Comey, and probably other senior Bureau personnel, are simply keeping this “investigation” alive; probably for political purposes.

Then there is the “Russia Hacked and/or influenced the US Presidential Election” “scandal”. This too, is going to go nowhere. In the first place, the only criminal acts involved are the hacking of the DNC server and the Podesta emails. In the first case, the lead investigative agency [FBI] never examined the server and, now any examination would be hopelessly stale. The only identification of the potential perpetrators comes from a company whose owner is a member of the Atlantic Council, which is anti-Russia. And, that “identification” is based upon extremely weak evidence and speculation. There is no direct evidence that the Russian government was involved, either officially, or unofficially in the breach. No legal action will ever be able to be taken against Russia for these incidents, beyond the current sanctions. Any action will be covert, by the IC, as has been done for the last 100 years.

Next we have the HRC servergate “scandal”. According to former Director Comey, in the speech he made during the campaigns, prima fascia evidence has already been collected for charges to be made. And, in his last appearance before Congress, he explained his reason for “exonerating” HRC; to protect the Obama administration, because he knew that the AG and President would not prosecute HRC and that the public would not accept that after the “meeting on the tarmac” will WJC. So, he threw himself on his sword to protect them, by making the decision “unilaterally”; after notifying AG Lynch, of course. There is a huge political component to prosecuting HRC for her mishandling of classified material, the tarnishing of the Obama legacy, which will likely keep any prosecution from occurring.

Finally, we have the “Unmasking and Dissemination of the Identities of and possible Domestic Spying Upon American Citizens by the Obama Administration” “scandal”. Interestingly, this “scandal” has totally fallen off the radar. What we have is strong suspicion that not only were the identities of American Citizens improperly or illegally unmasked and illegally disseminated to the public, but that some American’s communications were intercepted either improperly or illegally. This is HUUUGGGEE. And, there is visible smoke. But, no one seems interested in pursuing an investigation in this area. Now, in all fairness, it is possible that the FBI has a robust, active investigation ongoing into this issue. Then again, maybe not. We will have to wait and see. However, having James Comey essentially overseeing such an investigation would make it necessary to remove him from his position. Especially after his admission regarding his reasons for exonerating HRS, which he made, publicly, before Congress.

So, no proof of Trump/Russia collusion will be found. Russian attempts to influence the US elections will likely fall into the black-hole of unproven conspiracy theories. HRC will not be prosecuted for servergate, unless things change drastically. And, we’ll have to see what happens with Unmaskingate.

Stay tuned.

The exact reason for the firing of James Comey has simply not been clearly communicated by the WH.

    The Donald takes the long view. He’s calculating, brilliant, patient, and he wins.

    This is going to be fun.

    How can you say that, with McCabe as the acting Director (and permanent Deputy Director)?

      Mac45 in reply to mariner. | May 12, 2017 at 6:09 pm

      As you note McCabe is only the ACTING Director. And, as Sally Yates found out, being an acting director leaves you vulnerable to termination.

      We will have to see who becomes the next Director. Then, we will have to see just how much backbone the AG and the President possess.

    “…..the “Unmasking and Dissemination of the Identities of and possible Domestic Spying Upon American Citizens by the Obama Administration” “scandal”……..”

They never did identify Deep Plunger who overflowed Water Closet. And what of the Nigerian Phishing expedition that caught a live one at the DNC? No thanks to The Washington Post, JournoLists, et al.

That said, She conceived. She aborted. What difference, at this point, does it make? Obama and Clinton were not and are never responsible.

Connivin Caniff | May 12, 2017 at 1:55 pm

Can they get it out of D.C. or N.Y.? They will never convict in those places.
