Democratic candidate addresses FBI Director James Comey's letter to Congress

Clinton calls on FBI to release 'full and complete facts' of email review

In her first public comments since FBI Director James Comey told lawmakers earlier in the day that the bureau is reviewing new emails tied to the server, Clinton said it's "imperative" that the bureau provide more details about what it's doing in the final days of the campaign.
"Voting is underway, so the American people deserve to get the full and complete facts immediately," Clinton said at a brief news conference in Des Moines, Iowa, adding it was "imperative that the bureau explain this issue in question, whatever it is, without any delay."
Clinton said she was "confident whatever (the emails) are will not change the conclusion reached in July," when Comey said he wouldn't recommend criminal charges in the matter.
Still, the Democratic nominee's campaign was shaken by Comey's move Friday — just 11 days before the election — and the press conference reflected how serious she's taking the issue. The newly discovered emails are part of an investigation into Anthony Weiner, according to law enforcement sources. Weiner, the disgraced former congressman, recently separated from top Clinton aide Huma Abedin after a sexting incident.
The FBI and the New York Police Department 
have opened preliminary investigations 
of allegations that Weiner, a former New York Democratic congressman, exchanged sexually explicit text messages with a purportedly underage girl.

The emails in question were sent or received by Abedin, according to a law enforcement official. There were a "considerable number" of emails being reviewed from at least one device shared by Abedin and Weinder, the official said. A separate official described it as thousands of pages.
The FBI is looking at whether any of the newly discovered emails will have an impact on the investigation into Clinton's server that was closed earlier this year.
After recommending in July that the Department of Justice not press charges against the former secretary of state, Comey said in a letter to eight congressional committee chairmen Friday that investigators are examining newly discovered emails that "appear to be pertinent" to the email probe.
"In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear pertinent to the investigation," Comey wrote the chairmen. "I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation."
Comey said he was not sure how long the additional review would take and said the FBI "cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant."
The FBI chief felt he had no choice but to tell Congress now or risk being accused of hiding relevant information before the election, law enforcement officials said in explaining the timing. The letter was "carefully worded," one of the officials said.
The Department of Justice, which followed Comey's recommendation not to charge Clinton, declined to comment Friday.

The news united Republicans. GOP nominee Donald Trump and other prominent Republicans, such as Speaker Paul Ryan, jumped on Comey's announcement to blast Clinton.
"Hillary Clinton's corruption is on a scale we've never seen before," Trump said at a rally in Manchester, New Hampshire. "We must not let her take her criminal scheme into the Oval Office."
Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, tweeted after the news broke, "A great day in our campaign just got even better."
Ryan said Clinton betrayed Americans' trust for handling "the nation's most important secrets."
"This decision, long overdue, is the result of her reckless use of a private email server, and her refusal to be forthcoming with federal investigators," Ryan said in a statement. "I renew my call for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings for Secretary Clinton until this matter is fully resolved."
Clinton's campaign learned of the news while they were aboard a flight to Iowa.
"We're learning about this just like you all are," a Clinton aide told CNN.
The Democratic nominee has the advantage in the race for the 270 electoral votes needed to capture the presidency. She is leading Trump by six points in CNN's Poll of Polls. The question now is whether the return of the email storm, which has overshadowed her entire campaign, will have an impact on any remaining undecided voters.
Despite lashing Clinton's email practices as "extremely careless," Comey declined over the summer to recommend prosecution. That move was instantly lambasted by Republicans -- some of whom decried what they said was the department's politicization. Comey eventually was called to Capitol Hill to testify and defend the FBI's integrity and decision process.
CNN's Shimon Prokupecz, Jim Sciutto, Stephen Collinson, Phil Mattingly, Jeremy Diamond and Daniella Diaz contributed to this report.

George Washington said this in his first Inaugural Address in 1789:
“There exists in the economy and course of nature an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness … we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.”
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is supposed to be America’s elite police force, which upholds and is held to the highest moral-ethical standards. The FBI’s motto is “Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity”.
But secret files reveal hundreds of FBI agents each year are disciplined for serious breaches of misconduct which include having sex with their sources and masturbating while watching porn at work.
America’s first President weeps….
~Eowyn
By Daniel Bates – Daily Mail – Feb 1, 2011
It is supposed to be the nation’s elite police force, working to the highest standards of all. But hundreds of FBI agents each year are in fact having to be disciplined for serious breaches of misconduct, secret files have revealed.
In the past three years more than 1,000 FBI employees have been found guilty of inappropriate behaviour, including one agent who had a sexual relationship with a source. Another agent used FBI databases to get personal details about celebrities he thought were ‘hot’. And one male member of staff shared confidential information with his news reporter girlfriend, and then threatened to release a sex tape the two had made unless she kept it quiet.
The litany of misconduct was detailed in confidential summaries of disciplinary rulings obtained by CNN. The disclosure threatens to undermine the FBI’s reputation for, as its own motto points out, ‘Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity’. The bureau could also face harsh criticism over its refusal to fire any of those caught out, even though the offences were of a grave nature.
Among the toughest punishments was for the agent who had the seven-month sexual relationship with a source. He was suspended for 40 days. Another employee drunkenly ‘exploited his FBI employment’ at a strip club by falsely claiming he was conducting an official investigation. He was suspended for 30 days. In another case a supervisor who viewed pornography in his office during work hours, while ‘sexually satisfying himself’ (so the file states) got a 35-day suspension. And an employee in a ‘leadership position’ misused a government database to check on two friends who were exotic dancers and allowed them into an FBI office after hours was ordered to stay away from work for 23 days.
President of the FBI Agents’ Association Konrad Motyka said such behaviour was ‘never acceptable’. He added: ‘Demonstrable incorrect conduct or criminal conduct is not acceptable and never should be’.
FBI Assistant Director Candice Will defended the decision not to fire any of the employees caught out behaving inappropriately. She said that 500 cases of misconduct were referred to her in the bureau’s Office of Professional Responsibility each year. Of those around 70 per cent – or 350 – were disciplined, including 30 who were fired.
The FBI employs 34,300 people, including 13,700 agents.
Assistant Director Will said: ‘We do have a no-tolerance policy. We don’t tolerate our employees engaging in misconduct. ‘We expect them to behave pursuant to the standards of conduct imposed on all FBI employees. It doesn’t mean that we fire everybody. You know, our employees are human, as we all are. We all make mistakes. So, our discipline is intended to reflect that. We understand that employees can make mistakes, will make mistakes. When appropriate, we will decide to remove an employee. When we believe that an employee can be rehabilitated and should be given a second chance, we do that.’

Dear Messrs Chairmen:
In previous congressional testimony, l referred to the fact that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had completed its investigation of former Secretary Clinton's personal email server. Due to recent developments, I am writing to supplement my previous testimony.
In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation. I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.
Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work, I believe it is important to update your Committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony.
