Hillary Clinton Still Has 99 Problems And Her Emails Are #1
FBI investigation could last until after Election Day.
Short of It:
While everyone was out last night trick-or-treating, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton continued to be haunted by her emails.
The Longer Version of It:
Last year, after it was found out that Clinton might have mishandled classified information by using a private email server during her term as secretary of state, the FBI launched an investigation. Cue everyone launching words, terms and names like: "private email server," "probe," "Crooked Hillary" and "James Comey".
At the end of the day, the FBI chided Clinton for being "careless," but they never brought charges against her. Then last week, FBI director James Comey announced that the FBI had been investigating former congressman Anthony Weiner's emails after allegations that he'd been sexting with a teenager came out. While digging into Weiner, who recently separated from Huma Abedin – Clinton's closest aide, the FBI found thousands of emails from Huma that may be related to Clinton's private server. Uncertain for now what's in the emails but it could take the FBI long after Election day to figure it out.
Earlier in the week, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) worth to Comey informing him that he might have violated the Hatch Act-- a law that makes it illegal for government officials to influence an election by using their position.
Also, yesterday, a report that the FBI was looking into Trump's former campaign manager, Paul Manafort, came out. The government is looking into his possible business relationship with Russia. As of now, the FBI has yet to make a public statement about their inquiry, which has plenty of people calling them out for playing double standards. On top of that, another report revealed yesterday that Trump used "legally dubious" methods to avoid paying taxes in the '90s.
As of now, what's in the emails remains to be seen. Whether or not the new reports on Trump will affect his campaign, is also in the air. What is certain is that if Clinton is elected president, she'll enter the White House with the ghost of email server's past haunting her.
