When Obama sat down with 60 minutes and glossed over Hillary Clinton’s massive email scandal by saying, “I can tell you that this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered,” he lied. It was a lie because the FBI investigation into Clinton’s breach of security was still ongoing. The investigation is still underway today.
It has also been reported that some officials within the FBI were angry with Obama’s meddling comments during the 60 minutes interview. According to the FBI, the less Obama knows about the investigation, the better.
As reported by the Hill, FBI Director James Comey told the Senate committee on Wednesday that Obama does not receive briefings on the ongoing investigation into Hillary Clinton.
“I hope the American people know the FBI well enough and the nature and character of this organization,” Comey added, “As I’ve said many times, we don’t give a rip about politics. We care about finding out what is true and doing that in a competent, honest and independent way. I promise you that’s the way we conduct ourselves.”
