Is Hillary Clinton headed to jail?
For months, Hillary and her team have sought to downplay the legal jeopardy surrounding the use of her private email server to transmit classified intelligence.
But the latest admission from the FBI could signal that her case is about to take a turn for the worse.
According to a report in the Washington Examiner, the FBI has recovered records from her private server and is holding them as evidence:
FBI agents have confirmed that they recovered records from Hillary Clinton’s private server and other electronic devices, but won’t reveal any details about those records because that information is being treated as “evidence” in a “pending investigation.”
“[A]ll of the materials retrieved from any electronic equipment obtained from former Secretary Clinton for the investigation are evidence, potential evidence, or information that has not yet been assessed for evidentiary value,” the FBI said in documents filed with a federal court Monday.
While media reports last year suggested the law enforcement agency had some success pulling potentially deleted emails off Clinton’s private server, which it seized in August, the FBI had previously shied away from confirming the existence of recovered records. It also hadn’t revealed any details about what was being considered “evidence” in its high-profile investigation.
“Due to the sensitive nature of the investigation, the number of FBI personnel involved in and having knowledge of the pending investigation is limited,” the FBI said in the filings.
The admission that the FBI was holding the records as evidence raised eyebrows everywhere.
Why would the FBI be holding evidence unless charges were going to be brought?
At first, Hillary tried to claim the FBI investigation was just a “security inquiry”.
The FBI said, “Not so fast!”
They declared it was a full-blown investigation.
Fox News reports:
“Hillary Clinton for months has downplayed the FBI investigation into her private email server and practices as a mere “security inquiry.”
But when asked Wednesday by Fox News about Clinton’s characterization of the bureau’s probe, FBI Director James Comey said he doesn’t know what “security inquiry” means — adding, “We’re conducting an investigation. … That’s what we do.”
The FBI director reiterated that he’s “not familiar with the term security inquiry” when told that is the phrase Clinton has used.”
Hillary has lied repeatedly throughout this scandal.
And every lie has blown up in her face.
But so far, she has only paid a political price.
Will she be held accountable with charges and a criminal prosecution?
