Now We Know: FBI Ignored Lawbreaking To Exonerate Hillary Clinton

Now We Know: FBI Ignored Lawbreaking To Exonerate Hillary Clinton

Investigators previously determined Clinton's email habits didn't break the law.

. Trump tweeted, apparently referencing a Daily Caller report.

President Trump is demanding former top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin be imprisoned for violating national security protocols and that an investigation be opened into former FBI Director James Comey.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday escalated an extraordinary confrontation with his own Justice Department, suggesting it was part of a shady government "deep state" conspiracy against him.

"This effort, seen in light of the personal animus toward then-candidate Trump by senior agents leading the Clinton investigation and their apparent desire to create an "insurance policy" against Mr. Trump's election, raise profound questions about the FBI's role and possible interference in the 2016 presidential election", Mr. Johnson wrote. The brazen criminality of Hillary Clinton and those around her in the previous election cycle is utterly unprecedented in modern American politics, far surpassing the relatively minor-league shenanigans of President Richard Nixon in seriousness.

In November, Trump lamented that he was not allowed to direct the Justice Department against Clinton.

But Trump's tweet is incorrect.

Republicans charge that an anti-Trump bias exists in the bureau's ranks, citing the campaign donations to McCabe's wife and, more recently, the release of hundreds of text messages between FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok and FBI lawyer Lisa Page.

Should coffee customers be charged 25p for disposable cups?
Legislation needs to set a date after which the continued production of unrecyclable coffee cups is banned by law". The report says disposable coffee cups are "made from paper and lined with plastic" which renders them waterproof.

Strzok was removed the team of special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading the Russian Federation investigation, over the summer after the text messages surfaced. "It'll be bigger and better than ever", Trump told reporters on December 15.

The renewed federal law enforcement focus follows a promise to Congress from The Trump Administration that law enforcement would revisit some of the investigations and legal issues closed under former President Barack Hussein Obama.

Last summer, Comey admitted he orchestrated the leaking of his notes - which were his work product and therefore government property - regarding conversations with Trump to the New York Times.

Asked to comment on the president's Tweet, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said she could not "confirm or deny the existence of any ongoing investigations". Just last week, conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch successfully sued the State Department, releasing emails that confirmed classified information was on the computer of Abedin's ex-husband Anthony Weiner.

He said Comey's "inner circle" had "predetermined opinions" about Clinton and Trump.

But there was no indication that Abedin "had a sense that what she was doing was in violation of the law", Comey added, and investigators couldn't prove any sort of criminal intent.
