The FBI has announced it will not charge Hillary in their investigation of her emails. This has come as a shock, especially because of the facts we’ve learned over the last few days. Do you think something is being covered up here?
The FBI has announced it will not make any changes to its July decision on Hillary Clinton’s emails, meaning the Democratic nominee will not be charged.
Congressman Jason Chaffetz tweeted out the massive news on Sunday afternoon.
‘FBI Dir just informed us ‘Based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Sec Clinton’,’ Chaffetz wrote.
Speaking to reporters with Clinton in Cleveland, Ohio, Director of Communications Jennifer Palmieri confirmed the camp had seen Comey’s letter.
‘We have seen Director Comey’s latest letter to the Hill. We are glad to see that he has found, as we were confident that he would, that he has confirmed the conclusion that he reached in July, and we’re glad that this matter is resolved,’ Palmieri said.
The investigation was reopened on October 28 – sparked by a DailyMail.com story that revealed Anthony Weiner was sending sexually explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl. The emails in question were found on Weiner’s laptop.
Reacting to the news shortly after 4pm, Donald Trump claimed Hillary in being protected by a ‘rigged system’.
Moments earlier, Trump took the stage in Minneapolis for a rally minutes after the news broke, and appeared to address the crowd without knowing Clinton had been cleared again.
The Republican nominee appeared more confident than usual in his speech, unaware he had lost what had become his campaign’s key attack on his opponent over the past week.
Trump kept his powder dry, not directly challenging the FBI director – but insisted that Clinton is ‘the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency of the United States.’
Hours earlier in Sioux City, Iowa, the billionaire seemed to think the classified email saga was swinging in his direction just before Election Day.
‘There’s little doubt that FBI director Comey and the great special agents within the FBI will be able to collect more than enough evidence to garner indictments against Hillary Clinton and her inner circle,’ Trump said then, ‘despite her effort to disparage and discredit the FBI.’
‘We could very well have a sitting president under felony indictment, and ultimately a criminal trial,’ he warned of the long-lasting Clinton scandal.
A Trump campaign aide told DailyMail.com that those sections of his stump speech were struck from the script while his plane sat on the tarmac and a wild throng waited for him to emerge.
Before Trump spoke at the earlier rally, Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King hinted that Congress might have the last word on the Clinton emails.
