FBI clears Clinton -- again (flashback)
CNN ^

Posted on 12/31/2017 3:34:41 PM PST by MNDude

New emails were mostly personal and duplicates of what had already been seen AG backed Comey's move Sunday (CNN) FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers Sunday the agency hasn't changed its opinion that Hillary Clinton should not face criminal charges after a review of new emails.

"Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July," Comey wrote in the new letter to congressional committee chairmen.

Comey dropped a bombshell on the presidential race last month when he sent a letter to Congress saying the FBI had discovered emails in a separate investigation that could be connected to the now-closed probe of whether Clinton mishandled classified information. The move infuriated Democrats and emboldened Republican nominee Donald Trump.

It's impossible to know before results are tallied what impact Comey's actions -- first raising a vaguely worded red flag 11 days out, and then lowering it two days from the election -- will have on the contest. But the news could help Clinton put to rest a controversy that has dogged her in the 2016 race's closing days, helping Trump narrow a polling gap nationally and in key battleground states.

Trump assailed the FBI's handling of the matter, though he did not directly address Comey's announcement at a rally in Sterling Heights, Michigan.

"You can't review 650,000 new emails in eight days. You can't do it, folks," Trump said, adding, "Hillary Clinton is guilty. She knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it, and now it's up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on November 8."

The reason Comedy did that was to protect the criminal matriarch Hillary because the news of the emails found had been leaked and he did not want that to to harm her coronation. And when the matriarch failed to steal the election of course she blamed it on Comedy, basically backstabbing him which is par for the course for the CCF (Clinton crime family)

Wrote the conclusion before doing the investigation. Gave her aids immunity in exchange for nothing and helped them destroy their laptops so there would be no questions.

Guess not - the page just isn’t coming back to where it normally does and it’s hard to tell if it went through.

If it doesn’t show, there’s not a heck of a lot to edit, is there?

I would prefer a “delete” for duplicate postings when that happens.

Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead, and Hillary Clinton is still cleared.

That woman will never face prosecution. She isn’t subject to the same laws that govern common folk.
