Oh, by the way, authorities don’t mean one foreign intelligence agency. They don’t even mean two. They believe up to FIVE, yes, FIVE, foreign agencies accessed and took emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server. How, how on God’s green earth, was she not indicted the first time round?
Authorities now believe there is about a 99 percent chance that up to five foreign intelligence agencies may have accessed and taken emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server, two separate sources with intimate knowledge of the FBI investigations told Fox News.
The revelation led House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul to describe Clinton’s handling of her email system during her tenure as secretary of state as “treason.”
“She exposed [information] to our enemies,” McCaul said on “Fox & Friends” Thursday morning. “Our adversaries have this very sensitive information. … In my opinion, quite frankly, it’s treason.”
McCaul, R-Texas, said that FBI Director James Comey told him previously that foreign adversaries likely had gotten into her server. When Comey publicly discussed the Clinton email case back in July, he also said that while there was no evidence hostile actors breached the server, it was “possible” they had gained access.
Clinton herself later pushed back, saying the director was merely “speculating.”
But sources told Fox News that Comey should have said at the time there is an “almost certainty” that several foreign intelligence agencies hacked into the server.
The claims come as Comey’s FBI not only revisits the email investigation following the discovery of additional emails on the laptop of ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner – the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin – but is proceeding in its investigation of the Clinton Foundation.
That investigation has now taken a “very high priority,” sources told Fox News. It has been proceeding for more than a year, led by the White-Collar Crime division.
Fox News is told agents have interviewed and re-interviewed multiple people regarding the case.
Even before the WikiLeaks dumps of alleged emails linked to the Clinton campaign, FBI agents had collected a great deal of evidence, law enforcement sources told Fox News.
