New set containing 42 pages of pretty redacted files obtained from the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton and her email scandal has raised pretty serious questions and revealed some flaws in the investigation itself.
Former Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton used a private email server in order to conduct government business, a scandal that happened in the middle of the election last year and was a key element in her loss to Donald Trump.
As reported by Fox News, The materials, all part of the probe dubbed “Midyear Exam,” included several documents designated as “grand jury material,” indicating the potential seriousness of the investigation that would ultimately be ended by FBI director James Comey in July, then restarted for a brief period in October before being shut down for good.
One redacted exchange reveals a back and forth subpoena response to the FBI from one of Mrs. Clinton’s private attorneys, Katherine Turner, a partner at Washington DC powerhouse firm Williams & Connolly. In the document, Turner agreed to turn over one of Mrs. Clinton’s non-secure Apple iPads and two of her BlackBerrys to the FBI.
But neither smartphone received from the law firm contain SIM cards or Secure Digital (SD) cards, and a total of 13 mobile devices identified by the FBI as potentially using clintonemail.com email addresses were never located by Williams & Connelly.
“We are presuming there are still 13 devices at issue,” Tom Fitton.
A detailed Fox News report suggested, that Clinton would often task aides including Monica Hanley with finding and supplying the secretary of state’s never-ending demand to use non-secure BlackBerrys for all her official government work. Some of Clinton’s BlackBerrys wound up being pounded with hammers on orders by Huma Abedin after Clinton’s homebrew servers went down or when news that Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal’s email had been hacked in 2013 by the Romanian hacker known as “Guccifer”—Marcel Lehel Lazar.
It’s not shocking to find out that this investigation was terribly handled, judging by the fact that there was tons of evidence proving that she committed several crimes and yet she wasn’t held accountable for any of it.
