A quick update on the federal investigation into Hillary Clinton's impropernational security-compromising email scheme, via the FBI director:
FBI Director James Comey told the Senate Judiciary Committee Wednesday that the FBI would not let the White House interfere with the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. “Anybody’s view about an investigation they’re not involved in is irrelevant,” Comey said, and promised that the White House would not influence the investigation. “We care about finding out what is true, and doing that in a competent, honest, and independent way,” he said. “I promise you that’s the way we conduct ourselves.” “As I’ve said many times, we don’t give a rip about politics,” Comey said.
This probe is serious and has expanded in scope. Comey likely felt compelled to affirm that political considerations will not infect his bureau's work because the nation's chief executive, to whom the Attorney General reports, decided to weigh in on Clinton's legal culpability amid the ongoing investigation. Speaking of which, is this an escalation?

If the FBI has access to the "complete" email tranche provided by Hillary to the State Department, as well as her private server (from which they've reportedly recovered messages her team attempted to unilaterally delete), they may be able to determine how many work-related emails she tried to destroy -- a separate issue from the 'gross negligence' of classified materials angle. She claimed she only deleted personal emails, but that has been exposed as a lieseveral times over.

A substantial majority of American voters view Mrs. Clinton as dishonest and untrustworthy, both on this specific issue and in general.  Relatedly, the presumptive Democratic nominee recently contradicted the explicit recollection of four separate Benghazi family members regarding what she told them at a private meeting in the days following that deadly terrorist attack.

Garland jihadi sent 109 encrypted messages that FBI can’t read
This is not a matter of privacy rights anymore when the jihadis attempted mass murder. These messages are evidence in a criminal investigation, and represent a larger national security issue. The idea that there would be any pushback against the FBI for trying to get these messages is breathtaking. “109 Encrypted Messages Sent by Jihadi […]

Homeland Security Shut Down Investigation Into Farook And Malik Linked Jihad Group To Protect ‘Civil Liberties’ Of Potential Terrorists

Pamela Geller / Atlas Shrugs

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) deleted intel records relating to notorious jihadists linked to San Bernardino Islamic terrorists Sayed Farook and Tashfeen Malik, because they wanted to protect the “civil liberties” of members of the caliphate-supporting network.

My civil liberties and your civil liberties are being abridged in accordance with the blasphemy laws under Shariah (Islamic laws). My organization is engaged in 15 different free speech lawsuits against various cities. Our free speech lawsuit against Boston is heading to the Supreme Court because even though truthful, our ads violate the laws of sharia (‘do not criticize Islam’). We are being forced to adhere to sharia mores but jihad murderers are given...
