The former chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee called the “body of evidence” against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton overwhelming and said FBI Director James Comey “really has no choice but to refer this for indictment.”
While Republicans and security experts have claimed for months that the evidence against Clinton is overwhelming, the Obama administration has dragged its feet in a false claim of “thoroughness”.
“It does appear as though the administration continues to push for, if you will, double and triple and quadruple measuring,” said Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), now chairman of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet. “But as you know, we have communications back and forth, the president from Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail. We have 1,300 sensitive documents, 22 classified at the highest level.”“This is well past anyone claiming that they didn’t know,” the Republican leader added.
On Monday, the FBI publicly acknowledged they were in the midst of a full-scale investigation into the Clinton e-mail scandal, the first time they’ve done so despite more leaks than the Titanic after it split in half.
“In this case, she made a choice. She made a choice to have a private server. She made a choice to use it with highly sensitive material. She made a choice to receive and retransmit documents that should have been classified when they came to her and have later been classified,” Issa said. “And these choices are really what the prosecution would be about.”
“You know, as somebody who has a head full of classified information, Hillary Clinton has an obligation to be able to not disseminate that information, to know the difference and to know when she sees material that should not be transmitted in the open. And particularly, in such a risky situation that she created by her choice.”
It said the investigation is still ongoing. Apparently there is a lot to investigate. I speculate those 30k + supposedly deleted emails are being or have been recovered and lots has caught the FBI’s attention.
What will happen now with her campaign? Is she done?
