The Obama Administration, Hillary Clinton’s Campaign and the Mainstream Media are in a melt-down --- They are trying to move heaven and earth and UN-RING the FBI Director’s clanging bell of a letter supplementing his prior testimony about the investigation of Hillary Clinton's E-mails
HOW BIG IS IT ??? WELL, COMEY DEFIED HIGHER-UPS IN THE DOJ TO PUT IT OUT THERE --- AND --- FOR THEIR PART, THE DOJ AND THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO LET THE WHOLE WORLD KNOW THAT THE U.S. ATTRONEY GENERAL, THE DOJ AND THE FBI DIRECTOR WERE NOT ON THE SAME PAGE ABOUT ALL OF THIS AND/OR POSSIBLY ANY OF THIS
Even Watergate Carl Bernstein says this has to be “…a real BOMBSHELL” for Comey to bring it up now, 11 days before the 2016 election for president
On Friday, October 28, 2016, with only 11 days until Election Day, the news broke that FBI Director James Comey had sent a letter to congressional leaders and relevant committee chairmen that in the course of investigating “an unrelated case,” the FBI found new emails that “appear to be pertinent” to the FBI’s case on then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s unsecured private email server. As a result, the FBI is reopening its investigation of Hillary….. HMMMM !!!
THE LETTER TO CONGRESS --- SUPPLEMENTING HIS PRIOR CONGRESSIONAL TESTIMONY
Here's the letter FBI Director James Comey sent to certain congressional leaders concerning the various matters discussed therein:
“[Direct Addrssee Chairmen Senators and Members of Congress]….
Dear Messrs Chairmen:
In previous congressional testimony, l referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton’s personal email server. Due to recent developments, I am writing to supplement my previous testimony.
In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.
Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work, I believe it is important to update your Committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony.
James B. Comey
[CC recipient ranking Senators and Members of Congress]….”
FBI DIRECTOR COMEY’S OTHER LETTER TO HIS FBI AGENTS AND OTHER EMPLOYEESHere’s something else that FBI Director Comey sent out inside the FBI:
This morning I sent a letter to Congress in connection with the Secretary Clinton email investigation. Yesterday, the investigative team briefed me on their recommendation with respect to seeking access to emails that have recently been found in an unrelated case. Because those emails appear to be pertinent to our investigation, I agreed that we should take appropriate steps to obtain and review them.
Of course, we don’t ordinarily tell Congress about ongoing investigations, but here I feel an obligation to do so given that I testified repeatedly in recent months that our investigation was completed. I also think it would be misleading to the American people were we not to supplement the record. At the same time, however, given that we don’t know the significance of this newly discovered collection of emails, I don’t want to create a misleading impression. In trying to strike that balance, in a brief letter and in the middle of an election season, there is significant risk of being misunderstood, but I wanted you to hear directly from me about it.
ONE OF THE MAIN WATERGATE JOURNALISTS, CARL BERNSTEIN HAD THIS TO SAY ABOUT THE COMEY BROUHAHA
“Well, there’s no question that the e-mails have always been the greatest threat to [Hillary Clinton’s] candidacy for president, that her conduct in regard to the e-mails is really indefensible and -- the one thing -- actually that could really perhaps affect this election.
We don’t know what this [Comey letter to Congressional Leaders] means yet except that it’s a real bombshell. And it is unthinkable that the Director of the FBI would take this action lightly . . . unless it was something requiring serious investigation -- I want to add here that in the last, oh, 36, 48 hours, there has been an undercurrent of kind of speculative discussion among some national security people that something might surface in the next few days about e-mails -- [I]t’s very possible that some members of congress very quickly are going to get an idea of what these e-mails are, and what this is all about, and for whatever purpose put some information out there.”
