After FBI Director James Comey made his highly controversial speech that said he would ignore Clinton’s illegal activities with classified documents, Hillary probably thought she was done with her legal challenges.
However, the State Department has decided to re-open the investigation surrounding the former Secretary of State’s emails and her handling of classified information.
Here’s what State Department spokesman John Kirby told Fox News, as reported by the Conservative Tribune:
“Given the Department of Justice has now made its announcement, the State Department intends to conduct its internal review. Our goal will be to be as transparent as possible about our results, while complying with our various legal obligations.”
This means the Clinton campaign will have to face even more questions about emails during campaign stops around the country.
Although trust in government is already at what appears to be an all-time low, the State Department could be opening the investigation as a way to control the outcome so as not to interfere with Clinton’s election. This could “clear” her just before ballots are cast for the presidential race – or could withhold damning information until December.
If their findings were to be correctly timed in order to dismiss Clinton of any wrongdoing at just the right time politically – just as the FBI’s decision not to recommend charges seems to have backfired on her.
Is the State Department’s announcement a legitimate attempt to bring Hillary to justice… or a well-disguised tactic to increase the odds that she gets elected?
