FBI Reopens Investigation Into Clinton E-Mails

A Hiroshima sized October surprise:

 

The FBI is reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server that she used while serving as Secretary of State, NBC News has learned. FBI director James Comey wrote in a letter to Congress that “in connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation … 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.”

Go here to read the rest.  I have been hearing that members of the FBI on the original Clinton e-mail investigation were ready to come forward and denounce the non-indictment of Clinton and claim that the original investigation was a sham.  This may be an attempt to head off the FBI agents coming forward, or the newly discovered e-mails may be very damning.  Either way, ten days out, this is very bad news for the Clinton campaign.

Update:  Oh, this is too perfect!  I have to be dreaming!

In the latest stunning revelation in today’s saga involving the FBI’s second probe, moments ago the NYT reported that the new emails uncovered in the closed investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server were discovered after the F.B.I. seized electronic devices belonging to Huma Abedin and her husband, Anthony Weiner.

 
 

The F.B.I. is investigating illicit text messages that Mr. Weiner sent to a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. The bureau told Congress on Friday that it had uncovered new emails related to the Clinton case — one federal official said they numbered in the thousands — potentially reigniting an issue that has weighed on the presidential campaign and offering a lifeline to Donald J. Trump less than two weeks before the election.

Until recently Anthony Weiner was married to Hillary Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, who separated from Weiner recently after news emerged that Weiner had engaged in an online affair with an underage girl.

The F.B.I. told Congress that it had uncovered new emails related to the closed investigation into whether Mrs. Clinton or her aides had mishandled classified information, potentially reigniting an issue that has weighed on the presidential campaign and offering a lifeline to Donald J. Trump less than two weeks before the election.

Go here to read the rest.  By seizing Huma Abedin’s electronics the FBI struck the mother lode.  Every dirty deal that Clinton was involved in will be on them.  As for Weiner, I wouldn’t be surprised if he made copies of everything he found over the years on Huma’s electronics, for potential blackmail purposes:  Hillary I would like you to appoint me ambassador to France.  I am sure that you would agree that is a fitting post for a man who can keep quiet about everything that you and my beloved Huma discussed through e-mails?

Trump is living proof that it is smarter to be lucky than it is lucky to be smart.

  1. It’s obviously the former. Just need a distraction to pull Comey’s next supervisor through the next 12 days. What a scam artist.

  2. A very strange way to distract attention. This is getting national coverage and telling potential Clinton voters that she is currently under investigation by the FBI. If this was an attempt to distract, it strikes me as a bone-headed move on the part of the Clintonites.

  3. This is no Clintonista move.

    It must be really something to not have been blocked by the Administration. Comey made a decision that he would rather not pursue a thorough investigation. There are a lot of potential reasons for that decision and not all of them reflect badly on him. Now he reverses course and embarrasses himself and the Administration, risking severe reaction from the woman who might one day soon be his boss.

    To my mind, there is no way this is other than earth-shattering.

  4. Rush had one possible decoy reason. Claim the investigation is being reopened and after several days declare nothing there. This to distract from the Wikileaks revelations which apparently are gaining traction.

    I don’t think he believes this is the reason but he puts it out there as a possibility.

  5. “…for a chaste wife not only must not err, but must not even incur any evil suspicion.”
    .
    O tempora! O mores!
    .
    The full quote from Cassius Dio is provided below. Book 37. Chapter 45. Paragraph 1.
    .
    “It was at this time that Publius Clodius debauched Caesar’s wife in Caesar’s own house and during the performance of the rites which according to ancestral custom the Vestals carried out at the residences of consuls and praetors out of sight of the whole male population. Caesar brought no charge against him, understanding well that on account of his associates he would not be convicted; but he divorced his wife, telling her that he did not really believe the story, but that he could no longer live with her inasmuch as she had once been suspected of committing adultery; for a chaste wife not only must not err, but must not even incur any evil suspicion.”

  6. Bill and Hill in matching orange jumpsuits.

    It will be interesting to see if the Obama Administration is silent or has comments on this latest development. You would think that a president and his secretary of state communicated often when she travelled abroad and especially in times of crisis (Benghazi).

    This could be really big….and if it is with no fear of Arkancide the aides will be singing like canaries in return for immunity.

  7. I think this exemplifies the Byzantine-cleverness of the FBI—they want to be on the “right side of history” if Trump is elected, and have an investigation leading to prosecution underway.
    ..
    And if Hillary wins, the investigation will be quietly concluded, probably late on the evening prior to Thanksgiving, when everyone is gone and getting ready to dive into their turkey.
    ..
    Either way, the FBI is perfectly positioned.

  8. May our beloved new Saint, Teresa of Calcutta, get the very last word; ” There won’t be a woman President, she has already been aborted.”. May that moment in time play over and over in the mind of Mrs. Hillary R. Clinton.
    Over and over.

    Justice is God’s, not man’s.

    May justice prevail!

  9. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. Justice is not always administred in this world….it is ALWAYS administered in the next.

    I don’t do a great job of praying for people I dislike…or despise. Jesus told the disciples that whatever town rejected them and their message, to shake the dust off of their sandals and leave, because it would be better for Sodom and Gomorrah then it would be for them. Truth is this is how I feel about most of the political elite ruling class. They make themselves into gods…..but they are not gods.

  10. PF.

    Your right.
    Praying for an outcome that glorifies God and rescues the Republic, or at the very least, keeps her head….our Lady Liberty.

  11. Oops. I meant to say, “We just might find out how horrible a president Trump will make after all.”

  12. Just as I thought saving the nation from the Clintons was hopeless, on the feast of Saint Jude, patron of hopeless cases, hope returns.

  13. Watched my local TV coverage of the breaking news with my mother in law. There was no sign of the Weiners’ pictures. I think my mother in law is finally done with HRC.

  14. …and it’s not over yet! So much corruption in so many of the actors in this morality play that we can expect more news breaking all over the place.
    I could be wrong but don’t really trust James Comey either– that whole thing last summer was just too disingenuous.
    .
    Here’s a quote from a M. Steyn opinion piece a few days ago:
    “For months, conservative commentators assured us that, when it comes to straight arrows, no arrow is straighter than FBI honcho James Comey – non-partisan, career public servant, will follow the evidence whereso’er it leads; why, “no one in law enforcement” is “more capable of navigating through a political maelstrom” and any attempts to politicize the outcome will ensure that “Comey will resign in protest, and other high-level FBI officials could follow him out the door”.
    All bollocks. Bollocks on stilts. Like everything else the Clintons touch, Comey’s FBI is hopelessly corrupted – and certainly more corrupt than J Edgar Hoover’s FBI, at least in the sense that Hoover was independent enough not to get rolled. The revelations of what happened reveal Comey to be a hack and a squish: he offered immunity to Hillary’s aides not to facilitate his investigation but to obstruct any further investigation; he allowed witnesses to Hillary’s crimes to serve as her “lawyers”; and he physically destroyed the evidence – that is, the laptops. A 6′ 8″ gummi worm would be more of a straight arrow.”

    I don’t know if the Rush suggestion that somehow this could help Hillary is that far out.
    “in God We Trust” -We watch and wait and pray

  15. I am sure that you would agree that is a fitting post for a man who can keep quiet about everything that you and my beloved Huma discussed through e-mails?

    What’s New York’s version of Fort Macy Park? Because that’s where they’d find him if he tried something like that.

    I do hear what you are saying. This is a far more plausible conspiracy scenario than the “distraction” theory posited elsewhere above. But does the possibility of a Trump victory really represent such a threat to the FBI that they would risk crossing the Clintons in such a manner and so close to the election?

    Could you elaborate on this for a fascinated Brit? 🙂

  18. IMO this won’t make a difference until Mrs. Clinton is made to do a perp walk in handcuffs.
     
    Too many people are infatuated with the idea of a President Mrs. Clinton.

  19. Smart move by Comey.
    —Protects FBI credibility.
    —Forestalls unhappy agents from spilling the beans.
    —Little impact on election due to Clinton lead and that most voters have made their choice and probably won’t change.
    –Sets Comey up for retirement if Clinton elected and promotion if Trump becomes President.

    Regardless what happens this is a win for Comey

  20. Anzlyne.

    Thank you for the link.

    Great commentary.
    Ann Coulter’s quote is dead on as well.
    This struggle for our Republic is reaching critical mass. I pray the Left is monkey slapped.

  21. “…nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life and limb…”, I am so weary of being flimflamed, swindled, lied to, jerked around, manipulated, cheated and subjugated to communism. It is time for patriotism, now and forever. Integrity anybody?Hillary is not a real person. Hillary is the embodiment of Satan.
