Clinton Scandal On Life Support After The FBI Refuses To Help GOP With Email Witch Hunt

Hillary Clinton 1

The Republican-driven Hillary Clinton email scandal suffered another blow as the FBI refused a request from a Republican-appointed judge for information.

Judge Emmet Sullivan is handling an FOIA case related to the emails that was filed by the conservative group Judicial Watch. Sullivan asked the FBI for information, and the FBI’s General Counsel James Baker shot down the request, “At this time, consistent with long-standing Department of Justice and FBI policy, we can neither confirm nor deny the existence of any ongoing investigation, nor are we in a position to provide additional information at this time.”

This response led to Republicans blowing a collective gasket, as Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) accused the FBI of acting like they are above the law, “The FBI is behaving like it’s above the law. Simply refusing to cooperate with a court-ordered request is not an appropriate course of action. This entire case, from Secretary Clinton’s ill-advised decision to use a non-government email server, to the FBI’s investigation about classified information, needs some transparency in order to assure the American people that getting to the bottom of this controversy is a priority.”

The FBI is not going to play along with the coordinated Republican witch hunt. Republicans are throwing a fit because they are watching their email scandal slowly fade away. Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers are rising. The negative media coverage of the Republican pushed scandal is fading away.

Former Sec. Clinton has been cleared numerous times of the Republican allegations of wrongdoing and criminal activity. The email scandal has never caught on with voters. As summer turns to fall, the email scandal is being pushed to the back pages, as the latest Republican effort to stop Hillary Clinton is looking like a dud.

  1. Um, Chuckles, the FBI IS the law. And Hillary did nothing that Colin Powell and Condi Rice didn’t do either. And why aren’t you after their emails and servers? The American people are done with this witch hunt. Pass the damn budget, the debt ceiling, and how about the infrastructure bill to get work done and people working again? How about the GOP just ONCE in the past 20 years does something for the PEOPLE, instead of your inflated egos?

  2. What did we hear from Grassley & the Klown Kar Klan not that long ago — I’m talking the GWB administration when emails WERE DESTROYED / DELETED by Cheney, (he who I wished someone had ‘UNPLUGGED’ when he had that non-human heart in him which required recharging). What did we hear from them — CRICKETS.

  3. The GOP will never give up. They will be pouting about those emails 20 years from now. I’m sure another imaginary reason to attempt a Hillary take down, is already in the works.

  4. Meanwhile Trey Gowdy remains an asshole pathetic-
    ally, desperately sifting through ashes. His reward is
    as empty as his head. Carry on…

  5. I hope we can give the next president a senate to work with. Tired of wasting the years away with GOP stagnation.

  6. Not only are repugs stupid, they are beyond redemption because they keep doing the same stupid shit over and over. They will never learn. They are bad jokes.

  7. Does anyone actually give a flying crap what Chuck Grassley thinks? I’m pretty sure the FBI doesn’t.
    Suck it Chuck.

  8. They’ve been at this sh%t for years, it didn’t just start with Prez Obama, it just made Republicans expose themselves earlier.

  9. The scandal may be on life support, but the investigation is not. This was the FBI being as professional as they should be at this stage… by denying everyone access (GOP, Judicial, and Congressional) until they have concluded their investigation.

    They won’t trickle out anything. When they have concluded the investigation, a bundled proposal of findings and recommended actions will be proposed to DOJ. We might then here some details, but it is likely the findings will be much farther-reaching than Ms. Clinton and her staff. It is my prediction that the FBI will find a systemic culture of mishandling classified information and communications at State. I say the cards must be permitted to land where the FBI investigation facts lead; politicians, pundits, advocates, and adversaries be damned.

  10. The only beliefs needed to be a Republican , make & keep women second class citizens , be a racists of any sort , or be for holding the middle class down . The poor white racists in the Rep. Party let their racism get in the way of common sense .

  11. You want to know what the real tragedy is? These redneck college dropouts draft dodgers is cause American workers jobs. By deny re-authorization of import/export bank Amer. workers lost hundreds of jobs. Last week GE announced it would finance an $11 BILLION contract through the French export bank because the Amer. bank is no longer operational.

    This is a continuation of these sh^*-fart for brain have cause this country and Amer. people 2011 – debt-ceiling = $17B; 2013 – GOP S/D = $24B not to mention the hit we our credit rating, GDP and the lagged on employment. All because a BLACK MAN KICK THEIR ASSES TWICE and the world leaders respect him. And he accomplished something their purity WHITE SOUTHERN LEADER FAILED AT SPECTACULARLY IN FRONT OF THE WHOLE WORLD.

  12. The State Department and DOJ have said there was NO law to be broken, as none was written during Sec. of State Clinton’s term. They also asked every living former Sec. of State for their emails, and got zilch. What a huge waste of money that could have gone to education, etc…, The Republicans constantly spend millions upon millions of our tax payer dollars for bogus partisan scandals. It’s an outrage and insane, but then so is the GOP/Tea.

  13. We CAN give THIS President a congress to work with this next election. We could at least get some things accomplished for the next 2 years. We have that ability, we just need to GET OUT AND VOTE OUT THE CLOWNS. Put Dems in there and watch how fast things start working again. The clowns are stopping all common sense Bills, let’s get these Bills out of their hands and called to the floor for votes — over 350 of them! These morons have been an embarrassment for the past 4 years, get rid of them. Bring brains back to the government. They’ve already wasted Billions of dollars and months and years wasted on phony investigations and phony scandals. Just get rid of them, that is not the government we need.

  14. On April 12, 2007, Rove’s operation admitted that it had deleted at least 5 million emails from the server. In December 2009, technicians who had examined the server reported that the number of emails that had been deleted was far greater — 22 million.
    What was in the emails? No one will ever know. It’s likely as not that there was incriminating evidence in the correspondence that tied Rove and others to the treasonous exposure of Agent Plame (which, at a minimum, was a violation of government security), the U.S. attorneys’ purge and perhaps other scandals, including the inquiry into charges that Republican lobbyist Jack Abramoff had used his entre with others in the GOP to bribe government officials. Abramoff was in prison serving the first year of his sentence when the email scandal broke.
    Another example how the media is a Conservative controlled propaganda machine.

  15. There is no Clinton e-mail “scandal.” There is only a republican attempt to smear the likely Democratic presidential candidate. As usual, the GOP has nothing to offer but lies.

  16. Not so!

    Republicans have offered us obstructionism in Congress, a worldwide reputation as war-mongering imperialists, increasingly theocratic government, an economy that pushes middle-class families into poverty, protections for polluters; and much, much more.

    Well, not “offer” so much as “try to shove down our throats.”

    Of course, their “gifts” rank below Christmas-themed sweaters, velvet paintings, and singing stuffed fish.
