Finally! The FBI has started to turn over hundreds of pages of memos, from their Hillary investigation, over to Congress! These long-awaited memos should shed light on Hillary Clinton’s private email server and sensitive information therein.
The Senate received a notification, late Friday evening, from the Justice Department and the FBI informing them that transmission would begin. The two establishments are working together to aid Congress in their investigation of former Director James Comey’s treatment in the Clinton email crisis.
As reported by John Solomon with The Hill.
The Senate committee has been seeking the memos for some time as it investigates whether Comey chose to absolve Clinton of criminal liability before the election-year probe was complete and before she was even interviewed. Comey ultimately concluded that while Clinton’s handling of classified emails was careless, there was not enough evidence of intent to warrant criminal charges.Comey had announced in July 2016 that the FBI was declining to pursue charges against Clinton for what it called the careless transmission of classified documents on her private email server. The FBI then re-opened the email case in late October 2016, shocking the political world because it was so close to Election Day after a new trove of emails was found on an associate’s computer.
