ELDER PATRIOT – During the third presidential debate Hillary Clinton said, “The FBI conducted a year-long investigation into my e-mails. They concluded there was no case.”
Au contraire Mrs. Clinton, FBI Director James Comey’s statement merely gave his opinion about the 30,000 emails she did hand over and not the more than 60,000 emails that her lawyers were allowed to dispose of based on their own “judgment.”
By way of comparison it took the FBI the better part of a decade to finally bring mafia kingpin John Gotti to justice. During that time there were multiple acquittals despite the fact that the Teflon Don’s attorneys didn’t have the same ability to block the FBI’s investigators from seeing two-thirds of the evidence.
Mrs. Clinton’s statement would have been more accurate if she had added three little words, “as of yet” as in, “As of yet, they concluded there was no case.”
That’s because Federal Judge P. Kevin Castel of the Southern District of New York (a George W. Bush appointee) “ordered the Justice Department to file with him under seal, by 5 p.m. Thursday, a copy of any search warrant application and related documents (he said he was not asking the government to confirm in open court that they even existed). He said the government should also propose redactions of any materials that, for example, could compromise investigations or people’s reputations if made public,” in response to a motion filed by liberal attorney E. Randol Schoenberg.
The New York Times is reported on Tuesday that:
“A federal judge in Manhattan indicated on Tuesday that he may partially unseal a government search warrant and supporting documents stemming from the F.B.I.’s investigation of a large cache of emails belonging to Huma Abedin, a top aide to Hillary Clinton.
“The discovery of the emails occurred during an unrelated investigation of Ms. Abedin’s estranged husband, Anthony D. Weiner, the disgraced former congressman who has been under scrutiny by federal prosecutors in Manhattan over allegations that he exchanged illicit text messages with a 15-year-old girl.”
Schoenberg filed the motion in an attempt to discredit Comey and exonerate Mrs. Clinton but just like the Russian hacking story and the recounts in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin the likelihood is this will also backfire on Clinton and the treacherous people who have supported her.
Once Jeff Sessions become the Attorney General Mrs. Clinton will no longer have “friends” to protect her from prosecution in the Justice System.
Mrs. Clinton is soon going to find out that the justice system won’t be so forgiving when she no longer controls it.
