FBI Director Comey Says Agency Won’t Recommend Charges Over Clinton Email

9

FBI Director James B. Comey notified key members of Congress Sunday afternoon that after reviewing all of the newly discovered Hillary Clinton emails, the agency stands by its original findings against recommending charges.

Comey wrote that investigators had worked “around the clock” to review all the emails found on a device used by former congressman Anthony Weiner that had been sent to or from Clinton and that “we have not changed our conclusions expressed in July.”

The conclusion from Comey provided one last twist to the 2016 presidential campaign and came just two days before Clinton will face Republican Donald Trump on Election Day.

Comey had upended the campaign just over a week ago, when he alerted Congress that new emails had been located that were related to Clinton’s use of a private server as secretary of state.

The emails came from a laptop owned by Weiner, the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and had been seized by the FBI on Oct. 3 as part of an investigation into lewd text messages Weiner is alleged to have sent to a 15-year-old girl.

Comey had come under fire for inserting the FBI into the campaign’s final days with the announcement. Department of Justice policy discourages the agency from taking steps in days before an election, to avoid the perception that the FBI is trying to the influence the outcome of the vote.

A spokesman for the FBI declined to comment beyond Comey’s letter.

  1. Why isn’t somebody being charged over the mishandling of information that was found on somebody else’s laptop if I recall a sailor went to jail for a lot less Could it be that somebody’s protecting Hillary nah

  2. Like I predicted, Comey is a useful idiot of the Clinton machine. He was threatened by Obama/Lynch to exonerate Hillary right before election day to help her win the Presidency. The American people are not that stupid. They see how deep the corruption is within the FBI and the American Injustice system.

  3. Obama threatened him.
    Like they reviewed 6,500 emails – sure.
    Didn’t answer how Anthony Weoner got the emails.
    Pure treason.
    She has got to go to jail.

  4. Hey Mr. Anonymous, #2, “IS” somebody protecting Ms. Rodham Clinton? Have you just risen from the dead!!? The media and every government agency has been protecting Hill & Bill from the first day they’ve met them!!
    DO you remember anyone who has gotten away with so much???
    Rubashkin was thrown to the dogs and hungry bears for crimes much less egregious!

    • Comey does what he is told to do for his own benefit. He doesn’t want to mysteriously die like all the others who went against the Clintons.

  5. After whitewater there were many bodies found, I guess Comey didn’t want to be counted as one of them this time. Some one called him J Edgar Comey, remember all the problems Hoover had when he was part of the FBI and look how many died for Whitewater even the head of the investigation. The supreme court has also be compromised by the left when Roberts was against Obamacare and then he was for Obamacare, all you have to do is change the words a little, I wonder how they twisted his arm.
