DOJ "Taking A Fresh Look" At Hillary Email Scandal, Report

A month ago, Trump took a direct shot (one of many, actually) at his own "Justice" Department for not following up on what many in the country believe to be a fraudulent investigation by the FBI that cleared Hillary Clinton of crimes far greater than those which Special Counsel Mueller has alleged against Trump allies like Michael Flynn.

Alas, according to an exclusive report from the Daily Beast, citing sources close to Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Hillary's email problems may be just getting started as the DOJ has allegedly decided to "take a fresh look" at the FBI's investigation of her private server.

Justice Department officials are taking a fresh look at Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of state, The Daily Beast has learned.

An ally of Attorney General Jeff Sessions who is familiar with the thinking at the Justice Department’s Washington headquarters described it as an effort to gather new details on how Clinton and her aides handled classified material. Officials’ questions include how much classified information was sent over Clinton’s server; who put that information into an unclassified environment, and how; and which investigators knew about these matters and when. The Sessions ally also said officials have questions about immunity agreements that Clinton aides may have made.

Stephen Boyd, who heads the Justice Department's Office of Legislative Affairs, appeared to hint at the department’s interest in Clinton’s emails in a letter to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte on Nov. 13. In the letter, Boyd wrote that that Sessions “directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues” the chairman was concerned about. He also wrote that those prosecutors would “make recommendations as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be opened,” and that they would sen dthose recommendations directly to the attorney general and his top deputy, Rod Rosenstein.

A spokesperson for the Justice Department refused to confirm or deny the story from the Daily Beast.

Ironically, this new information comes just one day after a mysterious fire broke out at Clinton's home in Chappaqua, NY...Destroying evidence can be very dangerous perhaps...

Of course, as we've pointed out numerous times over the past year and half, the FBI's, or more accurately James Comey's, decision to not proceed with any charges in the Hillary email investigation has confounded many Americans given the FBI's own documentation of what clearly seems to be intentional criminal activities.  Take for example, the time that Hillary and her staff clearly instructed their IT manager to delete emails despite full knowledge of a subpoena from Congress (see: The "Oh Shit" Moment: Hillary Wiped Her Server With BleachBit Despite Subpoena)...

Then, on March 4, 2015, Hillary received a subpoena from the House for all of her emails on her personal servers.

Hillary FBI BleachBit

Which brings us to the "Oh Shit" moment.

On March 25, 2015, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had a "conference call with President Clinton's staff."  Apparently, in the days following that call, the Undisclosed PRN Staff Member had an "'oh shit' moment" when he realized he had forgotten to wipe the PRN server clean as he had been instructed to do back in December by Cheryl Mills. 

Therefore, sometime within the 6 days after a call with "President Clinton's Staff," that PRN server was wiped clean using BleachBit despite the subpoena from the House Select Committee on Benghazi received weeks earlier on March 4, 2016.

...not to mention the follow-on crime committed when Paul Combetta at first lied to the FBI about deleting the emails but subsequently "remembered."  So, what did Combetta get for committing perjury?  Surely, he was rewarded with an indictment...just the same as Michael Flynn, right?  While that might make sense to some folks, unlike Flynn, Combetta received a sweet immunity deal for lying to the FBI instead of an indictment...(see: The "Oh Shit" Guy That Wiped Hillary's Server With BleachBit Was Just Granted Immunity).

Meanwhile, lets not forget the clear political bias of the FBI, obstruction of justice by Obama's attorney general, etc...

Of course, the key question is whether this is all just another distraction gimmick being employed by the White House or whether Trump intends to make good on another campaign promise...

Trump:  "If I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception."

Clinton: "It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country."

Trump: "Because you’d be in jail."

Here's a quote from the Daily Beast article Tyler linked that is rich with hypocrisy (by an Obama admin official):

"...Matt Miller, a spokesperson for the department during Holder’s time there, vehemently disagreed. He said the news is evidence that Trump is undermining the independence of the Justice Department.

“The president’s ongoing campaign to tear down the wall between the Justice Department and the White House seems to be working,” he said.

If the White House asks you to look into it, the answer is not to look into it for the sake of looking into it,” he continued. “The answer is to tell the White House to stay out of investigations and prosecutions, especially when it comes to your political opponents. You’re just encouraging a bully. If you encourage him to do that, he’ll just keep bullying you...”

 

Of course, except for when your own agency uses the FBI, DOJ and intel sources to conjure up dubious dossiers, which are then brought forth to FISA courts, in order to begin and expand spying operations on your own political opponents, whilst using the same agencies for secret meetings on jets ,which are parked virtually next to each other on a tarmac for sole purposes of discussion golf games and family well-wishing, and using political-plants to stack an "independent investigation" with officials who, while taking a break from extra-marital affairs, text each other about their true agenda and their own insurance plans in the unlikely event one dies before they are 40 and who are all know to have contributed $$ to the subject of their investigation's opponents.

And in the other breath, white-wash incriminating evidence of smashed hard drives, smashed cell phones, bleach bit [wipe with a cloth] of servers used to store "back-ups" of classified information, make disappear leakers and laptops of close aides' spouses, conduct interviews with blanket immunity and in the presence of legal counsel who are also themselves aides, yet help to "view" carefully selected evidence on their personal laptops only to having said evidence erased after "viewing" it all while the conclusion of the investigation is pre-etched shortly before hand, then perform some tidy work by ways of changing legally detrimental wording from "grossly negligent" to "extremely careless", which can then be used to announce to the law-abiding citizenry: "After a thorough and careful investigation we have conclude there is no evidence to purse any charges"....and while chucking it up to a good day's work can be overheard in the corridors of the Department of Justice, with weaselly sounding voices: "now let's grab some lunch", after padding themselves on their backs...

Good point, wrong person.

Sessions was not gonna go up against the whole medical industry ... he’s a clean cop, just following the law.

 

You know darn well that DJT will do what the two faced commies did not ... just wait until Crooked Bernie runs. DJT will add every sane millennial to his base.

Cut the bullshit.  The statutes Sessions follows are null and void because they assume authority never delegated to the feds.  There is a reason why the 18th amendment was required before the feds could ban alcohol.  Can you guess what that reason was?  No, tell me why no similar amendment was needed for the feds to ban weed?  Try real hard to be coherent and rational.

C’mon ... that’s the “best” shiny object he’s got. 

Since the Purps are so high up in “position”, the double-agents (informants) have to be high up too. You will not know who flipped (months ago) and who quietly unrecused themselves until after the orange jumpsuits are being fitted.

 

If POTUS has a plan, it has to look like this. Until December 2018 anyway ...

Could Mathis make a call and within a couple hours Osprey's with Marines loaded to the hilt land on the long , straight highway just west of Camp Williams in Bluffdale, Utah and demand information from the NSA boys and girls.  Anyone not totally cooperating could go out to that same highway and board the C-17 that would take them out of the cold Utah weather and deposit them in sunny Cuba.

Then why are the walls continuing to close in?  Why is this case not going away?  Did you miss the part where the email scandal may re-open?  Try again. 

It takes time to connect all facets of this crime operation.  She no longer has Comey, Lynch, and Obama in power to save her.  And no longer does she have 90% on her payroll.  Many of them are looking for a place to hide.  Her closest aide has a ankle bracelet and one could surmise that McStain and Hillary do as well. 

Tick, tock, Hillary.  Your fate awaits you.

There is Use and Transactional Immunity.  Use is specific and Transactional is broad - also called 'Blanket' Immunity.

But - even Transactional Immunity cannot grant immunity for FUTURE bad acts.  And, I believe that is applicable since Huma was sending emails to Weiner's laptop even after the granting of immunity.

Every immunity agreement is void if you lie during your questioning after signing the deal. Huma abiden and Cheryl mills both lied to the FBI during questioning when asked if they knew of her private server. They apparently answered 'no' when released emails showed that they did know about it. So at least as far as those two, the immunity deal should be tossed.

And they're doing it with Kratom too. A pharma company wants to patent the molecule in Kratom so DEA wants to make it Schedule 1 like heroin. Corrupt. Millions use it in Asia and nobody dies or gets sick. In small doses (< 1 tsp) it's a mild stimulant like having three cups of coffee. No jitters or runs to the bathroom to pee and no high whatsoever. If I was back in college I'd use it before every exam. ALL supposed cases of Kratom toxicity are due to other drugs and that's verified by forensic medicine.

DOJ "Taking A Fresh Look" At Hillary Email Scandal, Report

My response: IT IS ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!

Let JUSTICE be served.

FYI, HRC was diagnosed in 2013 as having subcortical vascular dementia. Why was MSM and DEMOCRATIC PARTY covering up this fact? This condition disqualifies her from running for POTUS.

Subcortical vascular dementia, also called Binswanger's disease, is caused by widespread, microscopic areas of damage to the brain resulting from the thickening and narrowing (atherosclerosis) of arteries that supply blood to the subcorticalareas of the brain. This condition is much worse than someone who has Alzheimer's.

Life expectancy: 3-5 years.

HRC will probably meet her maker before she is prosecuted.
