It was just revealed to the public that FBI director James Comey had Hillary Clinton’s backup email throughout the entire 2016 election cycle but never bothered to searched it. Now, Clinton has received some bad news, as U.S. District Court Judge Randolph Moss has ordered the State Department to hand over the contents of the backup device by September 2018.
Right Wing News reported that this means the device will have to come out right before the midterm elections where Democrats believe they will be able to win back the house and senate from the Republicans. This ruling came thanks largely to the work of citizen researcher Larry Kawa, the determination of Congressman Ron DeSantis, and the lawyers of Tom Fitton’s Judicial Watch.
“The documents are part of the accelerated schedule of production ordered by U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg, which requires the State Department to complete processing by September 28, 2018, the remaining documents of the 72,000 pages recovered by the FBI in its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s illicit email server,” said Judicial Watch attorneys. “These new classified and other emails appear to be among those that Clinton had attempted to delete or had otherwise failed to disclose.”
This comes after House Republicans sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and to FBI Directory Christopher Wray and U.S. Attorney John Huber urging them to open an investigation into Comey, Clinton and other DOJ officials involved in the Russia probe.
”We write to refer [Comey, Clinton and DOJ members] for investigation of potential violation(s) of federal statutes … [and] are especially mindful of the dissimilar degrees of zealousness that has marked the investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, respectively,” the letter signed by 11 GOP lawmakers reads. “Because we believe that those in positions of high authority should be treated the same as every other American, we want to be sure that the potential violations of law outlined below are vetted appropriately.”
“Incredibly, [Comey’s] judgment [that no reasonable prosecutor would bring a criminal case against Clinton] appears to have been made prior to interviewing Secretary Clinton and as many as 17 key witnesses – including Clinton’s closest aides,” the letter continues. “Comey’s decision to not seek charges against Clinton’s misconduct suggests improper investigative conduct, potentially motivated by a political agenda.”
