Today a CNN report indicated that FBI investigators have found “no criminal wrongdoing” by any parties affiliated with the Hillary Clinton email and private server scandal.
This information is said to have been pushed out there by the Obama Department of Justice – not the FBI.
Here is an excerpt of the recent CNN report on the subject:
“The interviews, we’re told, are focused on whether classified information was mishandled, and the security of the server. So far officials tell us, no, there is no evidence of criminal wrongdoing at this point in the investigation, but, again, the investigation is not over.
…Some of Hillary Clinton’s closest aides, including her longtime adviser Huma Abedin, have provided interviews to federal investigators, as the FBI probe into the security of her private email server nears completion, U.S. officials briefed on the investigation tell CNN. The investigation is still ongoing, but so far investigators haven’t found evidence to prove that Clinton willfully violated the law the U.S. officials say.”
Emphasis was made on the last sentence as it is particularly interesting language coming from what is a likely DOJ leak. “Willful violation” is not a prerequisite for an actionable violation and yet that is the very defense it appears the Obama Department of Justice is setting up for Mrs. Clinton – a “she didn’t mean to break the law” defense if you will.
The above statement by the Obama DOJ is the administration’s justification for not pursuing charges against Hillary Clinton regardless of the FBI’s findings. Wrongdoing will be forgiven as being unintended, and the matter will then be quickly swept under the proverbial carpet.
That’s the seeming plan at this point, anyway.
