The Washington Examiner reported that at a town hall event in Sarasota, FL yesterday, Comey said, “There is zero chance, zero chance, on the facts in the Hillary Clinton case, that she would be prosecuted. You are out of your mind if you don’t think the FBI wanted to make a case if we could. The facts weren’t there. Period. Full stop.”
In July of 2016, Comey announced during a press conference that the FBI would not recommend the Department of Justice charge Clinton for her use of a private email server.
The former FBI Director said at the time, “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
However, as the Daily Caller points out, a federal court recently ruled Clinton must answer more questions about her use of the server.
In November, federal Judge Emmet Sullivan ruled that Clinton must answer the following two questions under oath:
- Describe the creation of the clintonemail.com system, including who decided to create the system, the date it was decided to create the system, why it was created, who set it up, and when it became operational.
- During your October 22, 2015 appearance before the U.S. House of Representatives Select Committee on Benghazi, you testified that 90 to 95 percent of your emails “were in the State’s system” and “if they wanted to see them, they would certainly have been able to do so.” Identify the basis for this statement, including all facts on which you relied in support of the statement, how and when you became aware of these facts, and, if you were made aware of these facts by or through another person, identify the person who made you aware of these facts.
