Skip to comments.Clinton probe tests FBI chief

FBI Director James Comey is being thrust into the spotlight as the controversy surrounding Hillary Clintons personal email server intensifies.
The FBI is investigating the security of Clintons email setup, including if classified information was mishandled. The probe is putting the nations top law enforcement agency at the center of a political battle leading into the 2016 election.
Comey has long shown an independent streak that's gained him wide bipartisan praise and helped him sail to a 93-1 confirmation vote in the Senate. That independence will be tested with Republican lawmakers demanding answers and the Clinton team dismissive of a controversy they see as politically drummed up.
Comey has been in the middle of bruising fights before.
He's best known in Washington for a dramatic late-night standoff a decade ago with then-White House counsel Alberto Gonzalez over reauthorizing a domestic surveillance program.
Comey was acting attorney general in March 2004 when then-Attorney General John Ashcroft was hospitalized in intensive care. He raced to the hospital bed at George Washington University Hospital after learning that Gonzalez was trying to get a semi-conscious Ashcroft to sign off on reauthorizing the National Security Agency's programs, arriving only moments before the White House lawyer.

A real Boy Scout.
The clinton sweat glands have just gone into overdrive.
Looks to me like it's more a question of how much Lynch hates whitey, as to if justice is to be done.
This isn’t a real investigation. Its the Obama wing vs the Clinton wing. Trotsky vs Stalin.
The hag is going down.
How could we possibly believe that at this point? I don’t mean any disrespect but with everything that they have done and skated with and what is being covered up even now how can we even conceive of that happening?
He’ll buckle under to the Clinton machine and let her skate as usual unless the golfing boy sics his pigs on her. If the golfer wants her to take a rap then she’s toast.
Seems like he goes after Reps and Martha Stewart.
Why would you say, “I don’t mean any disrespect.”?
The Obamas and Clintons have wiped their buttocks with pages torn from federal law books.
The information will go to the US Attorney assigned to the case. That Attorney only has to answer one question: Was there classified information on her server?
Not holding my breath. Even if the FBI collects enough on her, and they already have enough, somebody in DOJ needs to prosecute. The FBI is pretty political, but DOJ is totally political.
Hillary knocked out punched by a lesbian
JMHO. Obama and the State Department gave this to the FBI (Comey) because they like Pilate washed their hands of Hillary. Whatever the FBI recommends, I believe Loretta will follow through on. Obama is setting Loretta to either replace Hillary or for the SC, and if Loretta prosecutes and convicts Hillary, it’s a done deal for her, whatever she wants. Millions of Republicans will side with her because she brought down Hillary. This could be epic for Obama and the Democrats too. And this chapter of American history will come to a close, finally
Greybeard said hag is going down and I didn’t want to be disrespectful to him by arguing against his statement but I do not believe the hag will ever go down. That is why I said I don’t mean any disrespect. I happen to agree with your statement about the torn pages from law books. These people are the law. They are all lawyers. Nothing will happen to her or any of them.
Based on the TOTAL LACK of accountability following Benghazi, HOW MUCH FAITH SHOULD WE HAVE IN CHIEF COMEY? About as much faith in Commander-in-CHIEF Odungheap which is ZERO!!
