Breaking: FBI Reopens Hillary Email Investigation!

Hillary's Email-Gate:  From the White House to the Jail House? Nothing is over yet folks. In fact, it's just now getting very interesting.  -W.E.

The FBI, which has been widely criticized for declining to refer criminal charges against Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton over her use of an unapproved email system for classified information, now is reopening the investigation.

The move was reported Friday by Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah.

He tweeted: “FBI Dir just informed me, ‘The FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation.’ Case reopened.”


The word comes as polls show Clinton’s support for her presidential bid is declining.
FBI Director James Comey held a news conference in July to detail the violations the FBI found, including the transmission of classified material over a non-secure system, calling her actions “extremely careless.”

But he concluded no charges should be referred to the Justice Department.

CNBC reported Friday that Comey explained the latest development in a letter.
“In previous congressional testimony, I referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton’s personal email server. Due to recent developments, I am writing to supplement my previous testimony,” Comey wrote.

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.”

Comey said he was unsure yet whether the material was significant.

The letter was addressed to several lawmakers who held committee hearings on the issue.
NBC News reported a Clinton campaign spokesperson responded to the news with, “No idea.”

But the action comes as the Clinton campaign has identified as its biggest hurdle the fact that many simply don’t believe her anymore.

Last month, Comey rejected calls to reopen the investigation into the private email server through which she directed classified national security details.

At that time, he told Congress none of the revelations that had developed since he locked down the case in July “would come near” to making him take that step.

The Washington Times reported, “He also refused to say if he’s investigating whether Mrs. Clinton lied in her testimony to Congress about her emails – but said they have received referrals from Congress asking for a new probe.”

When the email scandal is brought up, the Clinton campaign defends the candidate by insisting the FBI cleared her.

The FBI’s assessment in July, however, wasn’t quite so complimentary.

Investigators found they probably couldn’t make charges stick because Clinton isn’t sophisticated enough to know the “risks” she was running with a separate email system, “or even to understand the classification system in which she was a key player,” the Times reported.

Donald Trump, making a campaign appearance, tipped off his audience about the reinvigorated investigation, and noted, “After that, the rest of my speech is going to be so boring.”

There has been no end to the email controversy over Clinton’s use of an unsecured system for classified details, with recent revelations from WikiLeaks even confirming members of her staff were horrified by the arrangements.

WND also reported just weeks ago that there might have been found a “smoking gun” in the scandal, as an aide apparently had asked the online community about the best process for stripping out IDs from archived emails.

Talk-radio icon Rush Limbaugh immediately credited the Reddit community for the discovery of what he called the “smoking gun on Hillary’s email deletion.”

“Apparently somebody working IT for Hillary went to Reddit and ask[ed] Redditors if any of them knew how to do this! ‘Do you know how to strip/remove content from very VIP emails?’ This request was made on July 24, 2014,” he said.

“You know what happened? You know what happened the day before? On July 23, 2014, a congressional committee chaired by Trey Gowdy confirmed a deal to get Hillary Clinton’s records and emails.

“After that is when somebody from her IT team, it is suspected, got hold of Reddit and said, ‘Is there anybody here who can tell me how to mass, to in bulk delete, and remove content of very VIP email?'”

The claims were outlined by Guy Benson at Townhall.

“‘Smoking gun’ may be a slight exaggeration, but the circumstantial case here looks pretty strong. Bravo to the Internet sleuths who ferreted out this virtual paper trail, which leads back to a techie who was granted immunity by U.S. officials in the course of their criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal,” he wrote.

He cited the Allahpundit blogger’s explanation as about the clearest of a complicated issue.
That blog said there’s “compelling circumstantial evidence” that a poster who was identified as “stonetear” could be Paul Combetta, the Platte River Networks tech who worked on Hillary Clinton’s email.

He recently was granted immunity from the feds for his testimony.

The blogger’s explanation continues, with the reference to the dates, the July 23 House Select Committee on Benghazi agreement on the production of Clinton’s records and emails, and the subsequent request for advice on stripping emails on the 24th.

“Oddly enough, stonetear seems to have been interested in precisely the same recordkeeping issues that Paul Combetta would have been interested in with Hillary Clinton as his client at precisely the same times that he would have been most interested,” the blogger pointed out.

“Equally oddly, all traces of stonetear seem to be disappearing from reddit this afternoon, now that members there are sifting through his archive of posts.”

The questions continued, “Assuming steontear is in fact Paul Combetta, why was Combetta looking at ways to ‘strip out’ a certain unnamed VIP’s email address from archived emails after a congressional committee had expressed interest in those emails?”
A suggestion?

The blogger wrote that there was speculation that “Combetta might have wanted Clinton’s address off certain emails in order to avoid discovery requests related to the investigation. If the House Benghazi committee demanded every email sent to or by Hillary Clinton, then one easy way to avoid producing a particular email would be to simply scrub her address from it.”

Summarized Limbaugh, “So the very day after the Gowdy committee confirms it’s going to get her records, a Hillary IT tech asks Reddit how to strip VIP email and email addresses from the archives of what she’s gonna send.”
