As the FBI reopens its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, on close inspection one is struck by the enormity of the task of sorting it all out.
The more we find out, the more questions we have, and the deeper we look into it, the deeper it keeps on going until we are left scratching our heads and wondering if it is even possible to reach the bottom of it!
Those under investigation have been Clinton associates for decades and have built long term personal and business relationships with them as members of their inner circle.
The list of potential criminal actions that could be prosecuted runs the gamut from mishandling sensitive classified documents, sexting an under aged girl, the Clinton Foundation being used for “influence peddling” or selling access to Hillary Clinton during her stint as Secretary of State and violations of laws pertaining to donations from foreign governments.
From the Daily Mail:
The five known investigations are into: Anthony Weiner, Huma Abedin’s estranged husband sexting a 15-year-old; the handling of classified material by Clinton and her staff on her private email server; questions over whether the Clinton Foundation was used as a front for influence-peddling; whether the Virginia governor broke laws about foreign donations; and whether Hillary’s campaign chairman’s brother did the same.
Clinton associates being investigated are:
Huma Abedin – Currently vice-chair of the Clinton campaign she was has worked with Clinton for 21 years, since she was 19, as among other things, intern, ‘body woman’, chief of staff and senior adviser.
Terry McAuliffe – Currently Democratic governor of Virginia. Has previously been prolific Clinton fundraiser and chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and chairman of Hillary’s failed 2008 run for the White House.
Cheryl Mills – Long-term Clinton lawyer who advised Bill during impeachment then Hillary over emails; Foundation director; State Department chief of staff.
Phillip Reines – Hillary Clinton press secretary when she was senator; press secretary to failed 2008 presidential campaign and spokesman for Chelsea during it; Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Hillary; played Donald Trump in debate prep.
John Podesta – Bill Clinton’s first White House deputy chief of staff and later chief of staff; founder of DC lobbying firm Podesta & Podesta, now the Podesta Group; took charge of the Clinton Foundation in 2011 ; now Hillary campaign chairman; at 67, often seen as the ‘dean’ of the Clinton political machine.
Tony Podesta – Older brother of John Podesta, with whom he founded what is now The Podesta Group of which he is chairman; social acquaintance of the Clintons; Democratic fundraiser.
Doug Band – Bill Clinton’s ‘body man’ in the White House; his chief aide after leaving office until 2011; CEO of Teneo Holdings.
Justin Cooper – Staff assistant for Oval Office operations in Bill’s White House; Doug Band’s right-hand man; edited Bill’s memoir My Life; registered the notorious Clintonemail.com server; now works for Teneo with Band.
Anthony Weiner – Former New York congressman when Clinton was senator; estranged husband of her key aide Huma Abedin; notorious serial sexter.
As you can easily see, this is probably going to be a long drawn out probe into the inner workings of the Clinton criminal cartel and their sleazy business dealings.
However long it takes, it is doubtful the FBI will unravel the whole tapestry anytime soon. But with the FBI’s recent actions against the will of the DOJ, it’s very likely many of the above are either going to get used to the inside of a prison cell, or they’re going to turn over their boss.
