House Expands Hillary Clinton Email Probe – Will Question FBI Director’s Chief of Staff
Why hasn’t Hillary Clinton been prosecuted for sending and disseminating highly classified materials on a home email server? We’re about to get answers, as Clinton faces serious legal issues.
The FBI chief of staff and senior counselor to Director Christopher Wray will meet with the House Oversight Committee on Thursday. And Republicans on the Committee are ready to demand real answers.
The House Oversight Committee, through a spokesperson, has confirmed Jim Rybicki will testify as part of their investigation into Obama’s Department of Justice probe into Clinton’s illegally operated private home email server. That initial investigation led to former FBI Director James Comey quickly announcing, in the heat of the 2016 presidential race, there would be no criminal charges filed against the former Secretary of State and Democratic nominee, despite overwhelming evidence of wrongdoing.
This joint investigation was announced by the House Oversight and Judiciary committees in December. The goals of the investigation have been announced by Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) and Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), and they are intent on exploring just how much of a role various FBI and Justice Department officials played in the Hillary Clinton probes.
As The Washington Examiner reports,
In a letter to department leadership, they requested interviews with Rybicki, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who traded anti-Trump text messages with another FBI agent who had also been assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.
McCabe was the first FBI insider to be questioned, having been grilled just before the Christmas holiday. He has announced his plans to retire in early 2018.

The most shocking development we have learned after the 2016 election is how members of the Deep State, including top FBI officials, were using their official capacities to assist Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign. These agents are charged with protecting America’s national security interests and are supposed to be nonpartisan, but these investigations have shown that even the FBI is not immune from partisanship. Considering what we know now, it’s amazing that Donald Trump was still able to pull off a victory.
Individuals have been charged and imprisoned for far less than what Hillary Clinton has been accused of. The information on her server was accessed by foreign governments, and that included details of agents actively in harm’s way. There is no excuse for how Hillary handled national security while selling access to the Obama Administration through Clinton Foundation donations. And it’s time for serious legal consequences.
This is a breaking news story. We will have more details as they become available.
