Nothing To See Here

It turns out that the search warrant for Hillary Clinton’s e-mails was based on nothing.

The FBI told a federal judge that it needed to search a computer to resume its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server because agents had found correspondence on the device between Clinton and top aide Huma Abedin — though they did not have any inkling what was being discussed, according to newly unsealed court documents.

The documents, made public Tuesday after a Los Angeles lawyer sued for their release, reinforce the impression that when the bureau revealed less than two weeks before the election that agents were again investigating Clinton, they had no new evidence of actual wrongdoing. The FBI’s revelation upended the presidential campaign, and to this day, Clinton and her supporters say it is at least partly to blame for her surprising loss to Donald Trump.


David E. Kendall, Clinton’s lawyer, said in a statement the affidavit highlighted the “extraordinary impropriety” of Comey revealing that the investigation had resumed, which Kendall alleged “produced devastating but predictable damage politically and which was both legally unauthorized and factually unnecessary.”

“The affidavit concedes that the FBI had no basis to conclude whether these e-mails were even pertinent to that closed investigation, were significant, or whether they had, in fact, already been reviewed prior to the closing of the investigation,” Kendall said. “What does become unassailably clear, however, is that as the sole basis for this warrant, the FBI put forward the same evidence the Bureau concluded in July was not sufficient to bring a case — the affidavit offered no additional evidence to support any different conclusion.”

The Director of the FBI basically upended the election based on no evidence or probable cause.

So yes, the election was rigged stolen.

6 barks and woofs on “Nothing To See Here

  1. Fat lot of good that will do us now. And even when he and the Republican legislature wipes out health care and Social Security and Medicare, I’ll bet he gets reelected in four years. This is how dictatorship establish themselves, with self-interested politicians and uninformed voters helping an authoritarian ignoramus convince them that, finally, someone is in charge.

      • We share our great country with easy to manipulate idiots and a predatory class too eager to manipulate them for their own gains.

  2. Yes the election was rigged. It was rigged to elect the Donald thanks to the Russians and our FBI. Everything changes and it will not be this way forever. We must not stop hoping and working for a better tomorrow.
