The FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server upended the 2016 election.
Former FBI Director James Comey outrageously claimed she didn’t commit any crimes.
But a new bombshell report suggests the investigation is not over and Clinton just got some very bad news.
Former New York Times Magazine editor Ed Klein reported in Newsmax that the FBI reopened the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails and offered her a plea bargain.
Under the terms of the deal, the Justice Department would not press charges if she signed a document admitting to a “prosecutable crime.”
“The Justice Department has reopened the investigation of Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified material on her private email system while she was secretary of state, and is considering offering her a plea bargain if she will agree to plead guilty to charges of breaking the law, according to a Clinton attorney.
The discussion of a plea bargain took place late last month and was offered by a high-ranking Justice Department official to the Clinton lawyer.
During the exploratory talks with the prosecutor, the Clinton attorney was told that despite former FBI Director James Comey’s decision last July not to prosecute Hillary, the Justice Department has reexamined the email case and believes there are ample grounds for prosecuting Hillary on a number of counts.
Under the Justice Department’s plea offer, Hillary would be required to sign a document admitting that she committed a prosecutable crime. In return, the DOJ would agree not to bring charges against Hillary in connection with the email probe.
Also as part of the agreement, the Justice Department would not proceed with an investigation of Hillary’s pay to play deals with foreign governments and businessmen who contributed to the Clinton Foundation or who paid Bill Clinton exorbitant speaking fees.”
The Blaze reported Klein stating in an interview that he did not think Clinton would take the plea deal:
“Speaking with “America Talks Live’s” Miranda Khan, Klein said, “Sometimes she has trouble admitting that she’s Hillary Clinton, you’re absolutely right. This is a woman who never, ever admits that she did anything wrong.”
“We’ve all seen how she has blamed everybody but herself for her loss in 2016 at the presidential election. So you’re right, I totally agree with you that the chances of her accepting such an offer are practically zero,” he added.”
Conservatives were perplexed by the news.
On one hand – if this is true – it means the investigation into Hillary Clinton is continuing and she may not escape accountability for her misdeeds.
But conservatives are also wondering why a plea deal is being offered to Hillary while a special counsel investigation rages against Trump.
It looks like the swamp is covering up for its own.
