FBI Director James Comey has blown this election wide open. He has now reopened Hillary Clinton’s email scandal for further investigation. That’s because evidence was uncovered when the FBI seized four devices during the Anthony Weiner sexting sting. On that laptop were in excess of 10,000 emails of Huma Abedin’s between her and Hillary Clinton. Looks to me as if they stumbled on Abedin’s insurance policy. Oopsies. Comey announced that the FBI would now be further investigating the matter as it is not closed yet and he had a duty to be transparent with regards to the case. Hillary’s ticked.
There’s just one tiny little fly in the ointment… Loretta Lynch. Her Department of Justice has so far refused to issue a warrant so the FBI can have a look-see at those emails. I think they are deliberately dragging their feet until after the election. What a disgrace. Wonder if the FBI can find a cooperative federal judge to bypass them? After all, it’s the principle of the thing.
From BizPac Review:
A senior law enforcement official told Yahoo News that the FBI doesn’t have a warrant to read the emails contained on the laptop of former N.Y. Sen. Anthony Weiner.
When FBI Director James Comey informed Congress that the bureau reopened the case into Hillary Clinton’s email server, he may not have read any of the emails from the computer of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s estranged husband.
Attorney General Loretta Lynch has not given the FBI a search warrant to examine the emails, according to an exclusive report by Yahoo News.
The letter to lawmakers was written when Comey “had no idea what was in the content of the emails,” an official familiar with the case said.
The FBI was still seeking a search warrant from the Justice Department as of Saturday night.
“We do not have a warrant,” a senior law enforcement official told Yahoo News. “Discussions are under way [between the FBI and the Justice Department] as to the best way to move forward.”
The Department of Justice is over the FBI. So, when all this was about to go down, Comey told Lynch of his intentions. She tried to talk him out of it, telling him he would be violating policy if he disclosed that the emails had been found. Comey considers Lynch to be compromised because of her little meeting with Bill Clinton on the tarmac before Hillary Clinton’s testimony to the FBI. Comey came forward with a letter to both Republicans and Democrats anyway. In other words, he flipped the bird to not only Loretta Lynch and the DOJ, but to Hillary Clinton herself.
Those emails are considered ‘pertinent’, so they suspect there is classified information in them. Huma Abedin has gone into hiding and Hillary Clinton has gone on the war path against Comey. Both of those moves are mistakes. Clinton doesn’t need enemies when she has herself. She’s losing voters left and right literally and she may very well have handed the election to Donald Trump with an assist from a stalling Loretta Lynch.
