Hillary Clinton has repeatedly lied about her email server.
Will she be held accountable?
She could be after this accusation of perjury got leveled at her.
Campaigning in North Carolina, Trump accused Clinton of perjury after CBS News reported emails found on a laptop shared by Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin were related to Clinton’s email scandal.
Fox News reports:
The real estate mogul told the crowd that “we know Hillary can’t be trusted” with national security, a reference to the ongoing FBI investigation of Clinton’s private email server, and called the former Secretary of State “the most dishonest person ever to run for office.”
“When I look at these great admirals and great generals … behind me, to think of her being their boss? I don’t think so,” Trump said, adding that such “incredible patriots … would never say a thing” about Clinton “but I know what they’re thinking.”
Trump then cited a CBS News report that FBI agents have discovered previously unseen emails related to Clinton’s State Department tenure on a computer owned by former Congressman Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of the Democratic nominee’s top aide, Huma Abedin.
“Remember they said ‘They’re duplicates, they’re duplicates,'” Trump said. “How can there be duplicates? Hillary therefore committed perjury because of her statements [to the FBI] in addition to all her other crimes.”
Republicans have already requested the FBI open a perjury investigation into Hillary Clinton.
They believe Clinton committed perjury on four occasions.
When she testified that she only used one email server, that she never sent or received classified intelligence, that all work-related emails were turned over and that her team went through every email, she was lying to Congress.
Fox News also reports:
Secretary Clinton stated “there was nothing marked classified on my emails, either sent or received,” the letter states. However, FBI Director James Comey said July 5 that a “very small number of the emails containing classified information bore the markings indicating the presence of classified information.” At least three emails had a (C) for Confidential which is the lowest level of classification. Fox News first reported in June that classified markings existed, despite Clinton’s public claims.
The letter continued, “Contrary to her sworn testimony, Secretary Clinton’s lawyers did not read each email in her personal account to identify all the work-related messages.”
Clinton told Jordan that her team “went through every single email.” The FBI Director said his investigators found that Clinton’s lawyers did not read all the emails, and relied on a narrow set of search terms to identify which emails were work-related.
“The lawyers doing the sorting for Secretary Clinton in 2014 did not individually read the content of all her emails,” Comey said July 5. Instead, they “relied on header information and used search terms.”
Clinton also testified to Congress there was only one server.
But will Hillary Clinton be held accountable?
The political hacks – led by Attorney General Loretta Lynch – who hold senior positions in the Justice Department are actively working to block any investigation into the Clintons.
Trump winning the election could be the only chance to hold Hillary Clinton accountable for her criminal behavior.
