Nine days ago, FBI Director James Comey shocked the entire country when he announced that the FBI was re-opening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct government business while she was Secretary of State.
The stunning announcement came about because 650,000 emails were found on the computer of Anthony Weiner during an investigation into his underage sex scandal. Weiner is the husband of Hillary Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin. Initial reports revealed that some of the emails had passed through Hillary Clinton’s unsecured server.
The first email investigation took the FBI over a year as they pored through around 30,000 of Clinton’s emails. The investigation was shut down in July and despite admitting that Clinton broke the law and endangered national security, Comey recommended that no charges be brought against Clinton because he didn’t feel that she intended to break the law.
On Sunday, Comey again sent shockwaves through the country. This time after only little over than a week investigating the hundreds of thousands of emails, Comey sent out a letter to members of Congress announcing that he was once again letting Hillary Clinton off the hook.
In the letter, Comey stated that the FBI had “reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton” and that the FBI had “not changed our conclusions.”
Despite the fact that FBI again let Hillary Clinton walk away from her illegal actions by shutting down the email investigation, the Clinton Foundation still remains under investigation by the agency to determine if there is any evidence of a ‘pay to play’ scheme during her time as Secretary of State.
