Hillary Clinton email scandal new investigation minus Barack Obama and former FBI director James Comey. Let’s see how this will play out.
From Fox News:
The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation’s top diplomat, Fox News has learned. Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information.
The department’s investigation aims to determine whether Clinton and her closest aides violated government protocols by using her private server to receive, hold and transmit classified and top-secret government documents. The department declined to say when its inquiry began, but it follows the conclusion of the FBI’s probe into the matter, which did not result in any actions being taken against Clinton or any of her aides.
Depending on the outcome of the current State Department inquiry, Clinton and her aides could have their access to sensitive government documents terminated.
Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, confirmed to Fox News the department’s formal inquiry.

( Fox News ) A sign marking the Crooked Hill Road exit off a suburban New York parkway has been vandalized to read “Crooked Hillary.”
Newsday initially reported about the additional “A-R-Y” that was added to the sign on Sagtikos Parkway.
“Crooked Hillary,” of course, is a moniker often used by President Donald Trump when referring to former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
The Department of Transportation didn’t find the prank funny.
“As soon as we were notified about the graffiti yesterday morning, it was removed,” a DOT spokesperson told Newsday. “Defacing public signs is illegal.”
WITCH HUNT! TRUMP BLASTS PHONY OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE PROBE, CITES CROOKED HILLARY’S REAL OBSTRUCTION
Always rogue! President Donald Trump took to Twitter Wednesday morning, blasting the witch hunt from the left this time the using ‘obstruction of justice’ narrative after failed phony story of Russia collusion . Trump also question why Hillary Clinton’s conduct during the probe of her private email server was not under more scrutiny, and why the Clintons family and Democrats dealings with Russia are not looked at.
- They made up a phony collusion with the Russians story, found zero proof, so now they go for obstruction of justice on the phony story. Nice.
- You are witnessing the single greatest WITCH HUNT in American political history – led by some very bad and conflicted people!
- Why is that Hillary Clintons family and Dems dealings with Russia are not looked at, but my non-dealings are?
- Crooked H destroyed phones w/ hammer, ‘bleached’ emails, & had husband meet w/AG days before she was cleared- & they talk about obstruction?
Diane Feinstein: ” Have the Judiciary Committee take a look whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured former FBI Director James Comey to cover for Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign.”
One of James Comey’s biggest expose during his Senate testimony was the fact that Obama’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch , directed him to call the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server not an investigation but as a “matter.”
The Hill reports:
Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-Calif.) said Sunday that Congress should investigate whether former Attorney General Loretta Lynch pressured former FBI Director James Comey to cover for Hillary Clinton‘s presidential campaign.
“I think we need to know more about that,” Feinstein told host Brianna Keilar on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“And there’s only way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that,” Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, said.
Comey testified last Thursday that he felt “queasy” after Lynch asked him to characterize his probe into Clinton’s emails as a “matter,” rather than an investigation. He told the Senate Intelligence Committee that such a request would match the wording of Clinton’s campaign.
Feinstein, who is a member of the Senate Intelligence panel, said she would’ve also felt queasy.
“I would have a queasy feeling, too, though, to be candid with you,” the longtime Senate Democrat said.
She added that an investigation separate from the ongoing probe into Russian interference in the election is needed.
( Daily Caller ) Loretta Lynch, the former attorney general under Barack Obama, pressured former FBI Director James Comey to downplay the Clinton email server investigation and only refer to it as a “matter,” Comey testified before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday.
Comey said that when he asked Lynch if she was going to authorize him to confirm the existence of the Clinton email investigation, her answer was, “Yes, but don’t call it that. Call it a matter.” When Comey asked why, he said, Lynch wouldn’t give him an explanation. “Just call it a matter,” she said.
Comey added later that he was concerned about that direction as it was false. He was further concerned because it aligned with the Clinton campaign’s spin on the investigation.
Lynch’s order, Comey said, “concerned me because that language tracked the way the campaign was talking about the FBI’s work and that’s concerning.”

Hillary Clinton: “When we moved in, I was told that using prison labor at the governor’s mansion as a longstanding tradition, which kept down costs”
( Milo ) Liberal heads are exploding following the “revelation” that Hillary Clinton used black prison labor in the Arkansas governor’s mansion she lived in with her husband from 1979-1981 and 1983-1992.
According to Newsweek, the “revelation” was first shared on Twitter by Bernie Sanders supporter and activist Jeanette Jing via a tweet containing an excerpt from Clinton’s 1996 book ‘It Takes A Village.’
“When we moved in, I was told that using prison labor at the governor’s mansion as a longstanding tradition, which kept down costs,” the excerpt reads, with Clinton adding that she got to know “a few of them, African-American men in their thirties who had already served 12 to 18 years of their sentences.”
“We enforced rules strictly and sent back to prison any inmate who broke a rule,” the excerpt continues. Clinton further added that while the men did not have “inferior IQs or an inability to apply moral reasoning” she believed they were “emotional illiterates.”

After the Democratic Party nominee implied that her being a woman cost her votes since she didn’t ‘look like and talk like and sound like everybody else who’s been president,’ she then mentioned Obama’s historic election in 2008.
‘And you know, President Obama broke that racial barrier, but you know, he’s a very attractive, good-looking man with lots of …’ Clinton says before her interviewer, Kara Swisher, interjects
…Biden, who at the time was a senator from Delaware, was gearing up to run against Obama and Clinton in the Democratic primary.
In discussing Obama, he told The New York Observer: ‘I mean, you’ve got the first sort of mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a story-book, man.’
Biden apologized for the comment.
