The results of the 2016 election ended Hillary Clinton’s career.
But even after the election, bad news keeps coming her way.
And a new report shows that she is just days away from the one thing she never wanted to see the light of day being revealed.
There are many people who believe Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election due to the scandal around her improper handling of classified information on a private email server.
Whether that is actually true is up for debate, but regardless, the scandal truly damaged Hillary Clinton’s reputation.
But it could have been a whole lot worse if it weren’t for then-FBI Director James Comey announcing that she would not be charged.
She avoided any legal consequences due to Comey’s decision, which was made without telling anyone in the Department of Justice.
Even though she won’t face any legal problems, and the election is far over, the scandal is still following her.
A new report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz goes into detail on how the FBI handled the investigation and was nearly released to the public.
The report is finished and has been sent to Congress for review.
Once they have reviewed it, it will be released to the public.
This report could be hugely damaging to Hillary, considering that it is expected to detail what went into Comey’s decision not to charge her.
As reported by Townhall:
“For months we’ve been anxiously awaiting a report from Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz detailing how the FBI handled the criminal investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her repeated, improper handling of classified information.
According to the Washington Post, the report is finished and has been sent to Congress for review before it is released to the general public.
Inspector General Michael Horowitz notified lawmakers in a Wednesday letter that the draft report was complete and being made available to the agencies and individuals examined in the probe.
The report is expected to blast former FBI director James B. Comey for various steps he took in the investigation, particularly his announcing in July — without telling his Justice Department bosses what he was about to say — that the FBI was recommending that Clinton not be charged, and for revealing to Congress just weeks before the presidential election that the bureau had resumed its work.
Horowitz launched the investigation into the Clinton email probe after emails between FBI agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page revealed severe anti-Trump, pro-Hillary bias. Strzok worked on both the Clinton email case and interviewed former White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn as part of Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s investigation. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to FBI agents last year.
In April, Horowitz released a report slamming former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for lying on multiple occasions under oath, in addition to inspector general and FBI investigators about the FBI’s criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton, the FBI’s investigation into the Clinton Foundation and more.”
Hillary Clinton’s email scandal will go down in history as one of the most brazen violations of the law by a Presidential candidate.
She will always be known for this scandal, similarly to how her husband will always be tied to the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
