Despite all the lies the Hildabeast has said about the FBI NOT looking at any CRIMINAL actions about her, IS TOTALLY FALSE!
The FBI has meticulously exposed several misleading assertions Hillary Clinton offered up to deflect concerns over her email scandal at this week’s Democratic debate. We cited evidence proving that she was wrong on several central facts, and that the equivalence she attempted to draw between the actions of previous Secretaries of State and her own misconduct is deeply flawed. Now, a former Assistant Director of the FBI and several additional intelligence sources familiar with the Clinton investigation are filling in more blanks — splashing ice cold water on Hillary’s deceptive spin. Fox News’ Catherine Herridge, who’s been dogged in her coverage, reports:
Clinton told moderator Chuck Todd that nothing would come of the FBI probe, “I am 100 percent confident. This is a security review that was requested. It is being carried out.” Not true says Steve Pomerantz, who spent 28 years at the FBI, and rose from field investigative special agent to the rank of assistant director, the third highest position in the Bureau. “They (the FBI) do not do security reviews,” Pomerantz said. “What they primarily do and what they are clearly doing in this instance is a criminal investigation.” Pomerantz emphasized to Fox News, “There is no mechanism for her to be briefed and to have information about the conduct, the substance, the direction or the result of any FBI investigation.”
Clinton and her team have tried to pretend that this federal probe is not criminal in nature, but it “clearly” is, Pomerantz says. He also spells out why Hillary is bluffing when she comments on the status of the investigation, which is why flat denials on reports like this are wishful guessing, no matter how assertive they may sound. In case you were curious, here’s the seasoned FBI agent running point on the expanding Clinton email affair.
FBI Director James B. Comey
Katie or Guy will have more on this in the coming days, but the Federal Bureau of Investigation has publicly stated that they’re looking into Hillary Clinton’s private email server, and that it’s an ongoing process. They wouldn’t give specifics. Such confirmation was made public after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit over release of the Clinton emails (via The Hill):
The FBI formally confirmed that its investigation connected to Hillary Clinton’s private email server remains ongoing in a letter released on Monday.
The letter from FBI general counsel James Baker comes one day before the New Hampshire primary.
The message does not offer new details about the probe, which the bureau has been reluctant to discuss. However, it represents the FBI’s formal notification to the State Department that it is investigating the issue.
Since last September, “in public statements and testimony, the Bureau has acknowledged generally that it is working on matters related to former Secretary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server,” Baker wrote to the State Department.
“The FBI has not, however, publicly acknowledged the specific focus, scope, or potential targets of any such proceedings.
“Thus … we remain unable [to] provide [details about the case] without adversely affecting on-going law enforcement efforts,” he concluded.
The letter was sent on Feb. 2 but released on Monday as part of an ongoing lawsuit related to the disclosure of Clinton’s emails from conservative watchdog Judicial Watch.
There’s been a lot of talk about indictments handed down over Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal server, which had classified information sent through it. Twenty-two recent emails are so sensitive that they’re not being made public, and the former first lady’s position was made more precarious (or at least to it should) when it was discovered that she had instructed a staffer to remove the classified markers on a document and send it unsecure. CIA informants and deep cover agents were possibly exposed through the server.
