Trump Hopes "Justice Will Finally Be Done" As FBI Reopens Probe Into Hillary Clinton Emails

Tyler Durden's picture

Update: Sentiment is taking a beating after the news that The FBI is reopening the case...

Update:

As CNBC adds, Donald Trump seized on the news Friday that the FBI is probing new emails related to Hillary Clinton's private server, contending that she threatens United States security and cannot be trusted in the White House. "I have great respect for the fact that the FBI and Department of Justice are now willing to have the courage to right the horrible mistake that they made," Trump said at a rally in New Hampshire. "This was a grave miscarriage of justice that the American people fully understood and is about to be corrected."

"In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation," Comey wrote.

"Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work, I believe it is important to update your Committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony," he concluded.

Trump claimed that "Clinton's corruption is on a scale we have never seen before."

Update:

More details from CNN which writes that after recommending this year that the Department of Justice not press charges against the Secretary of State, Comey said in the letter to eight congressional committee chairman that "recent developments" urged him to take another look.

"In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear pertinent to the investigation," Comey wrote the chairmen. "I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation."

Comey said that he was not sure how long the additional review would take and said the FBI "cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant."

Law enforcement sources say the newly discovered emails are not related to WikiLeaks or the Clinton Foundation. They would not describe in further detail the content of the emails. It's also unclear whether the emails in question are from Clinton herself.

Clinton's campaign learned of the news while they were aboard a flight to Iowa. "We're learning about this just like you all are," a Clinton aide told CNN.

The surprising news jolts a presidential race that had largely settled as Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump struggled in national and key battleground polls. Now, Clinton will be placed back on the defensive and forced to confront yet again questions about her trustworthiness.

As we detailed earlier, in a stunning development moments ago Jason Chaffetz tweeted that the FBI's probe into Hillary Clinton emails has been reopened: saying that "The FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation."

After being briefed by his investigative team, Comey "agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to asses their importance to our investigation."  Comey said he could not predict how long it would take the bureau to assess whether the new emails are "significant." 

Moments later, NBC News reported that the agency was reopening the investigation and shared a letter from FBI director James Comey informing key lawmakers of the investigation.. .

“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” Comey wrote.

 

“I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information,” Comey wrote

The full letter to members of Congress, in which FBI director James Comey said the agency had "learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation" in connection with an unrelated case, is shown below.

No, it's not for real. How much more evidence can you possibly need? She is guilty of at least 5 violations of federal law by any objective measure and they let her walk. Anyone thinking this will go any different hasn't been paying attention. Banana republic, two sets of laws.

only if accompanied by this from the NSA:

Either way Obama will pardon her.

Maybe Comey got a text message from Assange:

"Do you want to tell the world or are you leaving it to us?"

ITEM: FBI Reopens Hellery Emails ...

We'll have an answer for you by 2018 ~~~

PS: TRexit Coming ???

Exactly, the reopening of the email probe just a lame ruse to deflect attention from damage being done by Wikileaks emails and Project Veritas vids.

 

Obama's politicized FBI has no intention of taking any action.

When it became clear it would be Trump v. Clinton, I made the pronouncement at the Davola dinner table that at least this election year would be entertaining, little did I know...

Donald - time to bring out the silver stake, don't let it drag on - gotta go for the kill shot now.

I agree, no more business as usual -- institutional crime, politicians above the law etc.

Here is the line fromhttps://www.sportsbook.ag/sbk/sportsbook4/www.sportsbook.ag/getodds5.xgi...

*UPDATE: With news of a new FBI investigation into Clinton's emails, presidential odds have been taken off the board Friday (Oct. 28) afternoon. As of Friday morning Clinton was listed as a -450 favorite to Trump's odds at +275.

You are a serial spammer and a serial pain in the ass. Might I politely suggest that you go fuck yourself? And get a life.

Your MO, always the same, is to post a provocative comment which SEEMS to be relevant but you have no interest in joining the discussion (and NEVER do) and your sole objective is to mislead readers into clicking on your falsified links to your BS site. That wastes everyones time is blatant SPAMMING.

Apologies to regular ZHers because I do understand these posts of mine can be irritating also, but I am donating my time to expose this shithead for the benefit of the ZH community. Please just skip over my easily recognisable posts when you see them.

Couple of Things

If Clinton Staffers are writing news articles for reporters, isn't that plagiarism and they (reporters) should all resign immediately for planting stories?

Comey destroyed Mills' lap top what is the point of re-opening the case unless Comey is just covering incase Trump gets elected.

Sounds like a plan to me.

The FBI "reviewed" 5 of the 33,000.  They will look at another 10 that are hand selected for review?  Sorry Cumey the damage has been done, you are a rat.

mc888's picture

Agreed, it's BS. They're only doing it because Trump is gaining traction as the "anti-corruption" candidate.

chubbar's picture

Exactly, if asshole Comey needed to see additional emails to suspect she's a crook then there is no hope that he'll ever recommend an indictment after witnessing what has come out of the emails he already had in his possession. Those proved beyond a reasonable doubt that she was purposefully circumventing security protocols in order to use a private server. This doesn't even touch the obvious pay to play evidence that was uncovered. She's a crook from head to toe and everyone knows about it. Quit beating around the bush and lock this bitch up!

Yep, it has the smell of ass-covering because they know the Good Ship Cankles is sinking fast.

Yep and if I'm trump comey still gets investigated for corruption.

MANvsMACHINE's picture

I've told a few people that something big was going to happen because most of the FBI are outraged at what has gone on and there's was no way they would just stand by and allow her to become president.  I thought they would arrest Comey, Lynch, Clinton, in an Elliot Ness kind of way.  Not trusting this yet but it's a good sign.

Maybe the FBI agents all got together and gave Comey an ultimatem.

 

MissCellany's picture

Don't forget the news earlier this week about the FBI deputy director whose wife took campaign cash from the Clintons' money man, Terry McAuliffe.

And I can't help wondering: what's still to come from Project Veritas?

MzMolly's picture

My first thought. The other agents maybe have enough info to take Comey down. Maybe Comey is trying to stall the other agents from telling all by saying he'll reopen the case. Stall stall stall tick tock tick tock and run the clock out as far as possible.

Second thought was that Wikileaks showed Comey what they are going to drop on Monday. To save his ass, as best he can, he reopens the case. The other case was their investigation into Wikileaks.

jcaz's picture

That would be my guess, also.... 

Somewhere within the bowels of the Justice Dept is a prosecutor who is willing to risk his career on a shot of making his bones by taking down Hillary-  I suspect that Comey is just trying to get ahead of some very real movement within the Department-

This is Comey's MO, actually- trying to take credit for the work of others.

CuttingEdge's picture

Every man and woman in the FBI know until this is dealt with they will collectively be seen as enforcers of an elite beyond laws, rather than the common people they purportedly represent.

Omen IV's picture

"Maybe the FBI agents all got together and gave Comey an ultimatum"

Excellent Comment - he was pushed - Assange caused a tidal wave !

East Indian's picture

My guess:

 

One email among the 35,000 released so far, probably the one in the 20th or 21st instalment, has upset Mr Comey and spurred him into action. 

(There is a chain of emails among the revelations; it clealy indicts Mr Comey in some other issue; Wikileaks has released an innocous mail out of that chain to blackmail Mr Comey to take action against Mrs Clinton: "Look, we have this entire chain of emails against you; here is the sample; now go get her, or else...")

 

Our members can locate that mail.

Breaking news today. FBI directer Comer is reopening  the Clinton email investigation.
Here's the kicker. All the liberal news is running the story. They have been burying every thing anti Clinton for months, but they are not shying away from this.
Here's what I think is happening. Last week a bunch of polls said Clintons number were way up. 10% to 12% on some. All the press was running the same meme the Hillary has already won. A big push before the weekend political talk shows.
This week, for no reason the polls are coming back down.  Now Comey is opening the email case so close to the election after he went to SO much trouble to sweep it under the run weeks ago. Humm.
I thing the "powers that be" have better real poll data than we do and it's not good for Hillary. Last week was one last, big push to see if they could turn it around and it failed.
The new FBI probe is not conclusive, but if the Department of Justice, or those hard core Republicans who refused to back Trump, all of a sudden change their minds, I think it's a sign Clinton is finished.
CNBC, Bloomberg, BBC,  USA Today, New York Post are all running the email story today.
I think it's time to break out the champagne.

Yep they're going to let him win and then 'pull it' on what's left of the economy.

I agree, I think the media might be trying to save themselves from certain death. But they are a day late and a dollar short.  I think the damage is done to the MSM.  We the people need to find a way to blackball these crony journalists as well as supporting alternative media outlets to bring about a media renaissance in this country.  A completely new press corps that is objective and patriotic.

CuttingEdge's picture

DC?

Picked up the same thing in the UK with the DT dropping this story front and centre - its been wall to wall anti-Trump for months and barely a sniff about Wikileaks. Suddenly, whammo. There appears to be a bus with Hillary's name on right now - maybe "they" have realised the grassroots reality (as opposed to the bullshit polls) is rather unpleasant? And just how much more ridiculous and farcical do they want Wikileaks make .gov and the FBI appear before the public fully understand the banana rupublic they are living in?
