White House Says Obama Had No 'Advance Warning' Of FBI's Clinton Probe

Tyler Durden's picture

As the news keeps trickling in, the latest information is that the FBI's letter to Congressmen came without Obama being previously forewarned.

The White House on Friday said it was not given any prior notice on the FBI's announcement that it was investigating additional emails relating to Hillary Clinton's use of a private email system.

"We did not have advance warning," White House spokesman Eric Schultz told reporters traveling with President Barack Obama to a campaign event for Clinton in Orlando, Florida. Schultz said news of the Federal Bureau of Investigation probe has not affected Obama's support for Clinton.

"I don't think anything has surfaced to changed the president's opinion and views of Secretary Clinton," he said.

To be sure, as John Podesta himself complained moments ago, the fact that this news appears just 11 days before a presidential election is "extraordinary", and what makes it even more extraordinary is that the FBI, aware of what was about to happen, proceeded with throwing this live grenade into the presidential election without even conferring with the president.

'the fact that this news appears just 11 days before a presidential election is "extraordinary"'

Podesta is, for once, right...It should have appeared long before.

He was on the 7th hole and could not be reached.

If Comey had told Obama in advance, Obama would have put a halt to it right then and we would never hear about these new emails.

In fact, don't be surprised if Comey is being read the riot act right now and comes out tomorrow and says they were all old, already seen emails.

President Obama “get out there and vote early for my friend Hillary”  thinking  “before the email news gets out”.


He claimed he didn’t know about her private server either although the sent and received emails from it.


Hope people waste their early vote on Hillary as it could be a vote for a non candidate.

What bullshit. Barry tells Comey to find something and recommend charges for Hitlery; Lowrenta files charges before the end of the year, and Barry scribbles out a last-minute pardon for the bitch - right before accepting a $25-million donation to his Prezzdinshul Liebarary from the Clinton Foundation.

Don't even need a program to follow this set of theatrics.

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.

What were they investigating Wieners devices for? Him sexting is an FBI issue?

Sexting with an underage girl, presumably across state lines would make it a federal matter.

NO SHIT!!!  He already knew all this crap that is getting revealed, so of course it isn't "changing his opinion"


What he won't admit is that he really actually hates Hillary, except for her "let's destroy America" objectives.

I got this sneakly little gut feeling right now that  Obama needs to hop a flight and take his skinny ass back to Kenya for some reason yet to be determined.

Ive been watching how that worm has been acting lately on his  "Campaign trail" while he is already in office and supposed to be running the country.

eh, prolly nuthin

Rats? More like Roaches.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch is declining to comply with an investigation by leading members of Congress about the Obama administration’s secret efforts to send Iran $1.7 billion in cash earlier this year, prompting accusations that Lynch has “pleaded the Fifth” Amendment to avoid incriminating herself over these payments, according to lawmakers and communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Sen. Marco Rubio (R., Fla.) and Rep. Mike Pompeo (R., Kan.) initially presented Lynch in October with a series of questions about how the cash payment to Iran was approved and delivered.

In an Oct. 24 response, Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik responded on Lynch’s behalf, refusing to answer the questions and informing the lawmakers that they are barred from publicly disclosing any details about the cash payment, which was bound up in a ransom deal aimed at freeing several American hostages from Iran.

The response from the attorney general’s office is “unacceptable” and provides evidence that Lynch has chosen to “essentially plead the fifth and refuse to respond to inquiries regarding [her] role in providing cash to the world’s foremost state sponsor of terrorism,” Rubio and Pompeo wrote on Friday in a follow-up letter to Lynch, according to a copy obtained by the Free Beacon.

Bullshit is right.

My theory is early voting and internal (real) polling show a Trump landslide.

Time to start throwing baggage overboard, and getting shit at least somewhat straight, before President Trump takes the helm, and goes medieval on their asses.
Obama included. He's neck deep in this shit. He will offer up Hildebeast in a heartbeat, to save his own ass. No love lost, either.

Haha! Motherfucking Democrat circular firing squad in 3...2...

Edit...you pussy Rino's ain't talking you way out of this shit either. We got a list, punks.

If you're Obama and you throw Clinton under the bus, you have to know she's going to give up every bit of dirty laundry she has, not just on you, but on every single one of the elites as well, in an attempt to save herself.  All Obama needs to do is get either the FBI or the DOJ to delay any action on this matter until November 9th.  If she's elected, you're going to see a pardon letter from Obama to her in no time at all.  He can't pardon her between now and election day because doing so is about as explicit an admission of her guilt as there could be, and she would lose huge on the 8th.  If she's not elected, you'll probably see some friend of the Clinton Foundation received a monumentally large contract, much of which will find its way into the Foundation as hush money.

Election-wise, I think she's toast.  Groups are deserting her pretty rapidly.  In the last two days, I've read that millenials are pretty much sitting this one out and I've read that a lot of blacks are infuriated about the email that talks about "using" that black guy that killed for selling loose cigs in New York in their campaign.  Dude's daughter blasted Clinton on Twitter when that came out.

Gotta wonder if Comey is seeing some writing on the wall and trying to distance himself from Obama and Loretta.

History is replete with examples proving that when people get drunk on their own power and self-importance, they are just setting themselves up for a real humbling.

We do believe him.  After all, he only found out after watching the news, just like us.  (Except for the Podesta e-mail that blew that very obvious lie away.)  I hereby christen this son of a bitch Obamanocchio.  Hey, maybe he can take pictures of his giant erect digit and text them to a pre-teen girl under the screen name of Carlos Danger.  Oh, wait, that's been done...

Wikileaks has confirmed that Obamao told a bald-faced lie to the American people when he said he knew nothing about Hitlery's private email server and that he even used a pseudonym in communicating with her through that server.

Obamao is a proven liar.

We're supposed to believe this statement?

Based on his history and her history, we'd be better off believing that he forced the FBI to do this so that he could declare all the emails a National Security concern and put them under seal.

I wish I could post pictures, because I'd be posting a big fat one of Joe Wilson pointing a finger at Obamanocchio and saying "YOU LIE!"

"and what makes it even more extraordinary is that the FBI, aware of what was about to happen, proceeded with throwing this live grenade into the presidential election without even conferring with the president."

Good! The sitting president should keep his nose out of the campaign and focus on his job! This election isn't for him to decide and what the FBI investigates should not be hindered by political pressure from the White House! It should be a REAL investigation of everything without bullying from BooHoo.
