The FBI and the Department of Justice are reopening their investigation on Clinton’s illegal private email server. —>
The FBI reopened its investigation into Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of an illegal private email server while serving as secretary of state after citing new evidence from a slew of recovered emails, Fox News reported.
FBI Director James Comey said he “learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation” in a letter to Congress today.
“I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation,” he said.
The FBI cannot yet share whether or not the intel they’ve gathered could lead to an indictment.
Republican nominee Donald J. Trump said at a rally today that the new investigation could give the DOJ and FBI a chance to right the “horrible” mistake made previously by refusing to indict despite insurmountable evidence proving Clinton broke the law and sent/received classified info, thereby subverting national security protocol. Recent Wikileaks dumps may have triggered the reopening of the FBI’s probe into the server.
“Hillary Clinton’s corruption is on a scale we have never seen before,” Trump said. “We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office.”
House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) said the following on the matter in a prepared statement:
“The FBI’s decision to reopen its investigation into Secretary Clinton reinforces what the House Judiciary Committee has been saying for months: the more we learn about Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server, the clearer it becomes that she and her associates committed wrongdoing and jeopardized national security.”
“Now that the FBI has reopened the matter, it must conduct the investigation with impartiality and thoroughness. The American people deserve no less and no one should be above the law.”
Clinton campaign operative Robby Mook responded to the announcement within minutes by deleting his email and Twitter.
