Just when Hillary might have thought she was in the clear, the State Department reopened the investigation into her email scandal after questioning and reprimanding FBI Director, James Comey. According to RT’s report:
Gregory Copley of the Defence & Foreign Affairs Group said the FBI’s decision to recommend not having Hillary indicted was politically motivated. “For anybody else, this would have resulted in either criminal or other disciplinary charges which would have seriously impacted the career of the person charged.”
Former Libertarian Party Chairman, James Lark, stated that there are double-standards present when dealing with politicians of high-standing, and this has been especially prevalent under the Obama Administration who has also gone after whistleblowers with a great deal of vigor.
“Now this would be laughable if it wasn’t so serious,” stated US Congressman (R-Iowa), Rod Blum, while questioning James Comey about the FBI’s decision not to recommend Clinton’s indictment. He later continued, “…Potentially damaging material – damaging to American secrets, damaging to American lives – could have been hacked, could have been exposed. Correct? Lives could have been put at risk.”
The points Rod Blum made are especially ironic considering Hillary Clinton’s condemnation of whistleblower, Edward Snowden, who has been accused of revealing American secrets, and putting American lives at risk. Forget running for president, shouldn’t she be making her great-escape to Russia?
While State Department spokesman, John Kirby, would not give precise information into the documents officials are evaluating, he did make this statement:
“We will aim to be as expeditious as possible, but we will not put artificial deadlines on the process. Our goal will be to be as transparent as possible about our results, while complying with our various legal obligations.”
Clinton currently faces “administrative sanctions,” as well as the risk of losing her security clearances, which would make it quite difficult for her to name a national security team if she becomes president. Included in the probe are Clinton’s confidants (which have since left the agency) Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan and Huma Abedin.
“There could be repercussions,” Kirby stated Wednesday to reporters, “assuming that individual still needed the clearance to work in another federal agency or something like that.”
As well as continuing the investigation into Clinton’s email scandal, Republican lawmakers are now asking the FBI (as though they can be trusted) to investigate whether or not Clinton lied to the committee. As is clear from the video above, we already know she did.
