When FBI Director James Comey announced the FBI was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, no one was prepared for the scope of new evidence that’s surfaced.
Some Clinton water carriers in the media tried to claim the FBI discovered only three emails.
But the truth shows an investigation involving multiple scandals and FBI field offices across the country.
In the process of investigating Anthony Weiner, who is the estranged husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, for sending illicit messages to a 15 year-old girl, FBI investigators discovered a lap top Abedin shared with her husband containing emails that could tie into other Hillary Clinton scandals.
However, what else they discovered was shocking.
The Wall Street Journal reports:
“Investigators found 650,000 emails on a laptop that they believe was used by former Rep. Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide, and underlying metadata suggests thousands of those messages could have been sent to or from the private server that Mrs. Clinton used while she was secretary of state, according to people familiar with the matter.
It will take weeks, at a minimum, to determine whether those messages are work-related from the time Ms. Abedin served with Mrs. Clinton at the State Department; how many are duplicates of emails already reviewed by the FBI; and whether they include either classified information or important new evidence in the Clinton email probe…
… Those emails stretched back years, these people said, and were on a laptop that hadn’t previously come up in the Clinton email probe. Ms. Abedin said in late August that the couple were separating.
The FBI had searched the computer while looking for child pornography, people familiar with the matter said, but the warrant they used didn’t give them authority to search for matters related to Mrs. Clinton’s email arrangement at the State Department. Mr. Weiner has denied sending explicit or indecent messages to the minor.
In their initial review of the laptop, the metadata showed many messages, apparently in the thousands, that were either sent to or from the private email server at Mrs. Clinton’s home that had been the focus of so much investigative effort for the FBI. Senior FBI officials decided to let the Weiner investigators proceed with a closer examination of the metadata on the computer, and report back to them.”
The Journal article also revealed there are multiple FBI investigations into the Clintons and their associates.
In addition to the email scandal, the Bureau is investigating the Clinton Foundation for illegal pay-to-play schemes.
This wide-ranging investigation involved field offices in New York, Washington, Los Angeles and Little Rock.
In addition, the Journal also reports that the Washington field office was sniffing around Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe.
McAuliffe is one of the Clintons’ closest friends.
He has also been involved in a recent scandal where nearly $700,000 in campaign contributions was funneled from McAuliffe cronies to a Virginia State Senate candidate – who happened to be married to the Deputy FBI Director who was also overseeing the investigation into Hillary’s illegal server.
As usual with the Clintons, everything gets worse the deeper you dig.
These emails could be part of a multi-prong investigation into the Clintons’ conduct stretching far beyond just Hillary’s private email server.
Could this be the one scandal the Clintons can’t wiggle their way out of?
