FBI launches its own classification review of Hillary Clinton’s emails

November 12, 2015

  It is now being reported here that the FBI is expanding, yet again, its probe into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, this time about whether statements made under oath violate a federal false statements statute. In addition the FBI, probably having grown tired of waiting for the State Department, has launched its own classification review of the former Secretary of State’s emails.

Here is more:

The FBI has expanded its probe of Hillary Clinton’s emails, with agents exploring whether multiple statements violate a federal false statements statute, according to intelligence sources familiar with the ongoing case.

Fox News is told agents are looking at U.S. Code 18, Section 1001, which pertains to “materially false” statements given either in writing, orally or through a third party. Violations also include pressuring a third party to conspire in a cover-up. Each felony violation is subject to five years in prison.

This phase represents an expansion of the FBI probe, which is also exploring potential violations of an Espionage Act provision relating to “gross negligence” in the handling of national defense information.

The section of the criminal code being explored is known as “statements or entries generally,” and can be applied when an individual makes misleading or false statements causing federal agents to expend additional resources and time. In this case, legal experts as well as a former FBI agent said, Section 1001 could apply if Clinton, her aides or attorney were not forthcoming with FBI agents about her emails, classification and whether only non-government records were destroyed.

  But wait, there is more:

Separately, two U.S. government officials told Fox News that the FBI is doing its own classification review of the Clinton emails, effectively cutting out what has become a grinding process at the State Department. Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy has argued to both Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Congress that the “Top Secret” emails on Clinton’s server could have been pulled from unclassified sources including news reports.

“You want to go right to the source,” Gill said. “Go to the originating, not the collateral, authority. Investigative protocol would demand that.”

  Bernie Sanders and all of Mrs Clinton’s supporters might be sick and tired of hearing about her damn emails but is sure looks as if the FBI is very interested in the story indeed.

      I think they might drag it out into the general and then exonerate her as a way to try to neuter the Republican candidate in the middle of the election.

    And the FBI now is going after her pals E-mail as well. Not so sure this is going away soon. Something is due December 1 just before the debate. I wouldn’t put it past Obama to sell her out and have Biden come to the rescue as a candidate.

        That’s the hard part because it seems to be coming from high up in the administration, somebody wants to take her down.

    Isn’t that part of the play Steve, making people ‘sick and tired’ … much less about Hilly’s illegal activities and her emails! If some are going against her – who are they and what’s their motivation? Brings to mind the TV show ‘BlackList’. They are some who really are in it to bring about good and the majority of others ‘sold out’ or working for the Agenda.

      That clip sums up what I love about the show! I wonder how many people understand that this is actually what is happening in many cases behind the veil?
      You are right about their goal of making people get to the point where they do not care by throwing so much at us at once that we simply give up trying.

      I love BlackList, have been a big fan of James Spader for years. This clip you posted is in my estimation what “might” be going on today!

    From Jim Stone’s site: Forget the E-mail scandal!

    “I am going to keep hammering this “prediction” even though I make fun of predictions and do not post them here. PREDICTION, or should I say FACT: Hillary WILL BE APPOINTED PRESIDENT>

    Forget about the fact that Donald Trump packs them in by the thousands, while Hillary hosts events that attract nothing but a few drifting dead carp and an occasional bot fly. None of that matters at all, you see, HILLARY ALREADY HAS THE VOTES FOR THE NOMINATION, even though not a single poll has opened. That’s the way the Diebold miracle works, I am confident that even Obama was appointed president and that Hillary will be appointed next.
    If you think the E-mail scandal is going to bury Hillary, think again, or should I say, DREAM ON, Hillary could go on national television and hand Venezuela 85 nukes in front of a world audience of 7 billion and she’d still get the nomination and never be punished, she is “too big to jail”, and is what I believe to be the most visible figurehead of the shadow government. The shadow government will not be touched, no matter what.”
