Skip to comments.Hillary's FBI nightmare
Posted on 09/24/2015 10:56:46 AM PDT by Brad from Tennessee
The next question in the Hillary Clinton email matter is who will force the FBI to release any documents it may have retrieved from the 2016 presidential candidate's homemade server Congress or the courts?
The answer: A federal judge may decide to get aggressive and order the law enforcement agency to turn over any newly discovered records or at least preserve them pending further court action. But don't expect congressional subpoenas to fly or FBI director James Comey to get hauled to Capitol Hill anytime soon.
Key congressional committees investigating Clintons emails argue that the courts are better suited to force the release of federal documents. One GOP source familiar with the investigations said a congressional committee could "theoretically subpoena the FBI" to demand the contents of Clinton's server, but judges are likely to wade into the issue first.
"I think the court is better positioned right now because of where the cases are in litigation," the source said.
Court action, however, depends on the aggressiveness of federal judges who are now managing more than 30 Freedom of Information Act cases involving emails on accounts maintained by Clinton or her top aides. . .

I remember the day when failure to provide FOIA releaseable documents resulted in a rather massive fine.
We’re just expected to think of “government transparency” in a different way now...
House Benghazi Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy a former federal prosecutor made clear through a spokesman that he has no intention to cross swords with the FBI.
“Chairman Gowdy has not asked the FBI about its investigation into Secretary Clinton’s unusual and unprecedented email arrangement, nor has the Bureau offered a briefing to the committee,” Benghazi panel spokesman Jamal Ware said
Sounds like this is going to drag along for a while. Right through the primaries I hope.
What nightmare? Nothing will happen to her.
the FBI is the coverup machine....
ever see the Solyndra dopcs..???
the FBI seized them
look for the head of the FBI to resign shortly
the corruption oozes out of this totalitarian regime
and the rhinos are DOING NADA
We need this to drag out until a new POTUS and AG takes office...
If Trump is POTUS and Gowdy is the AG then we’ll have her...any one else will not be any good...
Could be Obuma will pardon her...
Come on, the Judicial branch greedily CRAVES executive branch man seed.
Trey Gowdy trusts the FBI - and we trust Trey Gowdy... If they need more time they’ve got it.
Shades of Chinagate... The Bureau collected reams of information and evidence on Chinagate back in the late 90s and early 2000s. And, contrary to Bureau procedures and regulations, no 302s and no evidence logs were filed. It was collected by DOJ and it all disappeared into the ether. Think it’ll happen again...?
They need to show us all the emails, job related and personal so we can see the entire picture. It will also show other executive branch officials that their communication is not theirs, but belongs to the American taxpayer.
p.s. Congress was “all over” Chinagate at the time too.
Run Hillary, run........ To North Korea.
Litigation???? With whom? Is there a prosecutor involved in this?
With that and her Ambassador Stevens nightmare where he asks her why he had to die, she isn’t getting much sleep at night.
Back when Gowdy promised action on Benghazi. “I don’t give a damn whose career is impacted.” Since then, ..... crickets
Hillary is just a common criminal. Obozo will either not do anything or if his administration is forced to do something because of the law then he will simply pardon her. End result is the same, nothing will happen to her.
This is Amerikka.
Doesn't a pardon have to be for a specific crime?
There may be too many to list...:^)
But I am not holding my breath to see her behind bars either...
I wonder if Snowden has anything to do with this dumping of so many articles on her today? Or is there a ‘leak’ in the FBI????
