Back in the spotlight emailgate the case that during the election campaign for the race for the White House has put into serious difficulties, Hillary Clinton. This time, however, end up in the crosshairs of the US Justice Department is not the former Democratic candidate – defeated by President-elect Donald Trump – but the number one FBI, James Comey.
The US Department of Justice has decided to open an investigation to verify the work of the FBI on the matter, particularly in the close of the voting period. The General Inspector Michael Horowitz will have to evaluate how federal agency leaders have handled the case and if they decided to reopen the eve of Election Day based on correct or incorrect considerations. Or even politically motivated.
The reference is mainly to the letter that the director of the Federal Bureau, James Comey, sent to Congress eleven days before the vote to communicate the reopening of the investigation on the former first lady, after the discovery of its new e-mail in connection with another case : one on risqué shots of Anthony Weiner, former husband of Huma Abedin, right Hillary arm.
The decision of the Justice Department, led by Loretta Lynch, stems from allegations of misconduct by the leadership of the federal moves by several members of Congress and private individuals. The email scandal broke before the nomination of Clinton in the White House. The indictment against the former first lady was using when he was secretary of state a private email server, installed at his residence in New York state, thus jeopardizing national security. The FBI investigation had concluded, however, condemning the bad of email management by the Clinton but without that crimes had been identified.
