There was a somewhat strange feeling in the pit of the stomach when it was first announced about a week before the election that FBI Director James Comey that he was reopening the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal.
Many immediately fell for the enticing, almost too-good-to-be-true emotional response that, FINALLY, Hillary was going to get what was coming to her.
As is well documented, that never transpired. Instead, we were left for a few days in Limbo, awaiting the news that would ultimately turn out to be a colossal letdown. The information contained on Anthony Weiner’s computer was the catalyst for the reopening of the investigation and this left us to wonder what it was that was so impressive as to warrant such a move so close to the election.
There is a good chance that we may need to wonder no more, as The Political Insider explains:
The judge, U.S. District Judge P. Kevin Castel has ordered the unsealing of a search warrant that played a crucial role in the reopening of Hillary Clinton’s private email server just weeks before the General Election.
The search warrant that the judge ordered unsealed involved the FBI’s request for permission to search emails contained on a laptop of Anthony Weiner, the husband of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. The FBI became of the emails after it initially gained access to the laptop during an investigation into Weiner’s alleged sexual correspondence with a minor.
Initially, Loretta Lynch’s Department of Justice objected to the unsealing order, but later relented with the stipulation that redactions would be contained in the released documents. Just when Hillary thought it was safe to go back into public again.
Merry Christmas, Mrs. Clinton!
