FBI reopens Hillary email probe: why did it take so long?

By Jon Rappoport

File this one under: “Come on. Really?”

The elephant in the room: HOW LONG HAS THE FBI KNOWN that new Hillary emails require reopening the probe in her handling of classified materials?

On or about September 23—over a month ago—the FBI announced it was looking into the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal, which involved a 15-year-old girl.

Suddenly, now, FBI Director James Comey states that, as part of this investigation, his people have found emails from and to Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest aide—and these emails appear to be pertinent to the Hillary email case.

Therefore, Comey says, the FBI is reopening that case.

Really?

It took a month to discover that some emails in the Weiner scandal MIGHT BE relevant to Hillary’s use of a private email server, and her criminally negligent exchange of classified material?

Comey says he can’t predict how long it will take to find out whether the new investigation will turn up anything useful.

This sounds very much like another FBI effort to stonewall the public and let the election move ahead as planned.

Imagine what would have happened had Comey announced, three weeks ago, that he was reopening the Hillary case. A huge shadow and cloud would have been thrown over her campaign.

Obviously, Comey is under major pressure from his own FBI investigators, who were outraged when he refused to recommend prosecuting Hillary the first time. He couldn’t get away with sweeping this new finding of Hillary emails under the rug, the second time.

Thus, Comey had to reopen the investigation—but he could delay it. He could make the announcement so close to the election that no grievous indictment against Hillary would be filed before November 8th.

The last thing his boss, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, will do is question the timing (delay) of his announcement.

Comey appears to be trying to satisfy the relevant parties—his own investigators and Hillary and her campaign bosses.

Again, the Weiner investigation began a month ago. It took that long to come across the Huma Abedin emails and see they MIGHT have some relevance to the original Hillary investigation?

A month ago, a few hundred FBI investigators could have told Comey, “Guess what? Anthony Weiner is married to Hillary’s closest aide. Let’s gear up and look for Huma emails right now…” This was no mystery. A green FBI agent, in his first week on the job, could have seen it.

Then, with an automated tech search, Huma’s name would have come up in minutes.

With a combination of further automated searches and FBI desk jockeys on the case, key contents of Huma emails would have been unearthed quickly. And then—stop everything. Shift gears and get back into the Hillary investigation.

A month ago, in a day or two, that’s exactly what would have happened.

Under the posturing Comey, the FBI is throwing more and more dirt on its own face.

Scandals on top of scandals on top of scandals.
