FBI Director: Emails no further action against Hillary Clinton

WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — The FBI informed Congress Sunday it has not changed its stance against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state, expelling any further drama that could exist for her campaign just two days before Election Day.

Bureau director James B. Comey said in a letter, which can be viewed here, to Congress that “based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”

At the end of last month, the news that the bureau was looking into emails found on a computer used by a top aide to Clinton, Huma Abedin, rocked the presidential race and provided another opening for the campaign of Republican nominee Donald Trump. Brian Fallon, a spokesman for Clinton, said in a post on Twitter that the campaign was always confident that she would be cleared of any wrongdoing.

“We were always confident nothing would cause the July decision to be revisited,” Fallon said. “Now Director Comey has confirmed it.”

Comey further said in the letter that the bureau has reviewed all communications that were to or from Clinton while she was secretary of state since he sent his last letter on Oct. 28. In July, Comey said that while Clinton and her aides acted “extremely reckless,” there was no evidence of intentional mishandling of classified information.

At least in the immediate, the letter removes the dark cloud that hung over the Clinton campaign for more than a week since Comey announced his agents were reviewing new emails that might be related to an investigation into Clinton that ended in July. However, his move will surely see Democrats raising new questions, of the most obvious, why did Comey raise the specter of wrongdoing before agents had even read the emails, especially since it only took days to determine they were not significant.

At a rally in Minnesota, Trump did not respond to Comey’s letter, but he alluded to it when he said that Clinton would be under investigation for a long time. “She’s protected by a rigged system. She shouldn’t even be allowed to run for president.”

Kellyanne Conway, campaign manager for Trump, also responded to Fallon’s Twitter post.

“Then why did you, your colleagues, and your candidate attack Comey and his credibility?” she asked.
