Hillary Clinton stood confident, resolute and unafraid during her press conference late Friday evening to address FBI Director James Comey’s email stunt.
Comey violated the Hatch Amendment by releasing a vague letter that seems to be aimed at influencing the outcome of the presidential election.
Clinton tore into Comey at her press conference Friday night. She began by saying that no-one in America besides Comey had any idea what emails he might be referring to or what they contained. She demanded that he immediately release the emails in question. It was clear that Mrs. Clinton was not rattled in the least.
“I have now seen Director Comey’s letter to Congress,” Clinton told reporters. “We are eleven days out from perhaps the most important national election of our lifetimes,” she continued. “Voting is already underway in our country. So the American people deserve to get the full and complete facts immediately.”
Clinton didn’t hide. She addressed the stunt directly. She called Comey out and demanded that he release the information they found on a device shared by Huma Abedin and her estranged husband Anthony Weiner.
Comey didn’t re-open the investigation as Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) tweeted. That lie was exposed quickly. Too bad media outlets like CNN and MSNBC ran with the story that Clinton was under investigation again, only to backtrack hours later.
There are reports that the emails were not connected to Hillary Clinton’s server nor were they sent by her. The Democratic Coalition Against Trump has filed a complaint with the Justice Department accusing Comey of interfering in the presidential election.
