White House confirms 'criminal' probe over Clinton emails, 'shreds' campaign claim | Fox News

Perhaps it was an unguarded moment, but the White House has confirmed that the Justice Department is conducting a “criminal investigation” regarding Hillary Clinton’s personal email use – despite repeated and persistent claims from the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee that investigators are pursuing a mere “security inquiry.”
Press Secretary Josh Earnest used the term at Thursday’s briefing, after being asked by Fox News about whether President Obama’s newly unveiled endorsement of Clinton might apply pressure to investigators assigned to the Clinton case.
Earnest rejected the premise, saying the job of career prosecutors is to follow the evidence to its logical conclusion.
More smoke from the Obama Camp. This won't end how it should, with Hillary frog-marched to a cell. She broke every ****ing security rule in the book, but because she's a big time political elite she won't be touched. Like most of these situations, the elite get off scot-free. Anyone with knowledge of security policies knows what a ****ing sham this is.

How funny would it be if the meeting between Sanders and Obama yesterday was Obama telling Sanders to hold on a little longer because Hillary is going to jail? :lol:

It does seem odd that a meeting to arrange support for Hillary wouldn't include Hillary... ;)

I'm not too sure about that... The story that broke this morning on ABC News about her appointing a six figure Clinton Foundation donor with no experience, to a sensitive government intelligence board while she was Secretary of State, is going to be a tough one for her to run away from.

Re: White House confirms 'criminal' probe over Clinton emails, 'shreds' campaign clai

It was a general statement about FBI investigations.



Q So when a career prosecutor or an FBI agent who’s working on the Clinton investigation hears this President speak openly of how he wants Hillary Clinton to succeed him, you don’t think that that career prosecutor or that FBI agent takes that as some indication of how the President wants to see this case resolved?

MR. EARNEST: No. I think that those career prosecutors understand that they have a job to do, and that that job that they’re supposed to -- which is to follow the facts, to pursue the evidence to a logical conclusion -- that that is a job that they are responsible for doing without any sort of political interference. And the President expects them to do that job.

And, look, this is the reason that we actually ask career federal prosecutors to take the lead on these kinds of matters. They’re the ones who conduct this investigation. They don’t have political jobs.

They have career jobs as law enforcement officers and as prosecutors and as investigators. And that’s what their responsibility is. And that’s why the President, when discussing this issue, in each stage has reiterated his commitment to this principle -- that any criminal investigation should be conducted independent of any sort of political interference and that people should be treated the same way before the law, regardless of their political influence, regardless of their political party, regardless of their political stature, and regardless of what political figure has endorsed them.

Q To your knowledge, has President Obama ever discussed the Department of Justice investigation with Mrs. Clinton?

MR. EARNEST: He has not. He has not.

Nah, that ain't going to happen. Obama is supporting Hillary, no indictment no jail no trial no nothing. "Oh it was just an error in judgment."

I agree... based on what we've learned about Obama, his endorsement of Hillary means that there's no chance in hell the DOJ will indict her.

The fix is in... You can take that to the bank.

Well, there could be as many as a dozen or so, but most of them are Trumpeteers.

It would be a really odd choice considering that he, and Biden, came out immediately thereafter and endorsed Hillary for President.

Probably, but if Obama wanted to cause the least amount of damage to the DNC while sticking it to Hillary he would endorse her before an indictment was served just so that Clinton supporters would feel simpatico with Obama.

If he endorsed Bernie and then the indictment was served it would look bad to Hillary supporters.

Now he can say his hands were tied and he's just as shocked as everyone else ... which of course is how Obama plays all bad news.

If the indictment is served look for Obama's famous "I just heard about this on the morning news like everyone else" dodge.

Like I said above, he wants to claim "I'm just hearing about this on the news like everyone else!". He doesn't want his fingerprints on this when it happens.

Remember, Obama is a disciple of Chicago Mob politics. If you want revenge you have to pose as a friend. When you want to do someone in you first throw a party in their honor.

Re: White House confirms 'criminal' probe over Clinton emails, 'shreds' campaign clai

Once Obama went out and supported/encouraged the Hillary Clinton presidency, that was a clear signal to the FBI and other investigative agencies.

I think it is going to be very difficult for any Justice Department employee to disown Obama's choice.

The very minute that Obama made his announcement yesterday, that was the bitter end to any possible charges being brought forth against Hillary.

Just like the Economic Terrorists at the banks, Hillary is now "Too Big To Fail".

We all know Clinton isn't getting charged, just like we all know Obama isn't going to allow the DOJ to charge her.
