Hillary Clinton was overjoyed yesterday when she came out victorious during Super Tuesday. However, she was quickly brought down to Earth hours later when Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation James Comey dropped a bombshell about the investigation into her emails.
According to GOP The Daily Dose, Comey said he is “very close, personally” to the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. While testifying before the House of Representatives on Tuesday, Comey told Republican Ohio Rep. Steve Chabot , “[T]he FBI tries to do all of its work: independently, competently, and promptly. That’s our goal and I’m confident it’s being done that way but I can’t give you any more details than that.”
Comey opened his line of questioning by saying, “A few weeks back, the FBI’s general council James Baker acknowledged the FBI is quote ‘Working on matters related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server’ end quote. And then the White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest stated that quote, ‘Some officials over there [referring to the FBI] had said that Hillary Clinton is not a target of this investigation and that it’s not trending in that direction’ end quote. And the President then weighed in, even though he apparently had never been briefed on the matter commented that he didn’t see an national security implications in Hillary’s emails and obviously, this is a matter of considerable import.”
“Is there anything that you can tell us as to when this matter might be wrapped up one way or another?” the congressman asked.
“I can’t congressman, Comey responded. “As you know we don’t talk about our investigations. What I can assure you is that I am very close, personally, to that investigation to ensure that we have the resources we need including people and technology. And that it is done the way the FBI tries to do all of its work: independently, competently, and promptly. That’s our goal and I’m confident it’s being done that way but I can’t give you any more details than that.”
This undoubtedly came as very bad news for Hillary, as it clearly means she could still end up in jail by the end of this year rather than the White House.
