Top investigators in the Department of Justice believe there is ample evidence of Hillary Clinton’s guilt despite fired-FBI Director James Comey’s decision to drop the investigation weeks before the 2016 election.
Bestselling author and former editor-in-chief of The New York Times Magazine, Ed Klein, reports in a recent article for Newsmax that Department of Justice officials have reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Investigators learned that then-Secretary of State Clinton was conducting official government business on a private email server during the course of the 2012 congressional investigation into the Benghazi embassy attack.
The FBI immediately launched an investigation to determine if the Secretary of State violated the Espionage Act of 1913 by mishandling classified information. Classified information was transmitted on the home server making it easily accessible by hackers and foreign governments. During the course of the investigation, officials learned that Clinton relied on the private server to couple official business with personal concerns.
Before she was appointed Secretary of State, the Obama administration required Clinton to sign an ethics agreement promising not to coordinate with the Clinton Foundation during her tenure. However, Clinton regularly communicated with the Clinton Foundation and other private companies associated with her husband former President Bill Clinton.
According to Klein’s sources inside the Justice Department, prosecutors are reexamining the Clinton email server and have found a number of offenses that could be prosecuted.
Klein claims that top officials at the Justice Department have already approached Hillary Clinton with a plea deal. They are asking Hillary Clinton to sign a document admitting that she violated federal law by circumnavigating official government channels. If she signs the deal, the Justice Department will not seek charges for her various “pay-to-play” schemes where the former Secretary of State allegedly traded government access for donations to her foundation.
Despite the sweetheart deal, Klein doubts that Clinton will sign the agreement. “This is a woman who never, ever admits that she did anything wrong.” Klein said on Newsmax TV. “We’ve all seen how she has blamed everybody but herself for her loss in 2016 at the presidential election… the chances of her accepting such an offer are practically zero.”
If Clinton does not accept the plea deal the Justice Department “will then proceed with this investigation and this is going to drag on for a long time and, in a way, balance the investigation that’s going on with President Donald Trump and his campaign advisers regarding so-called collusion with the Russians,” Klein explained.
It has been reported that Department of Justice officials have reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Do you support this move?
According to Klein, the Justice Department will be seeking charges related to mishandling classified information, but they will also be considering charges related to obstruction of justice and perjury.
Hillary Clinton was allowed to delete thousands of emails before turning the server over to the Justice Department. Clinton claimed that all of the deleted emails were personal, and not work related. However, James Comey’s testimony contradicts this claim, and hundreds of deleted work emails have been recovered, according to Breitbart.
Reopening the investigation outside of an election cycle will allow investigators to arrive at the truth of the email scandal with little concern for the political priorities that plagued James Comey’s 2016 investigation.
