Wait And See

I am sure about only one thing regarding the Clinton email/Benghazi fiascos: I am sure that I am not sure what the outcome will be and I do not trust the federal government as far as I can throw them.

In any event, Time has this to say about FBI Director Comey efforts regarding the email scandal. Not all of it is exactly reassuring as he already has let Hillary skate once (the Whitewater case) even after he knew she obstructed the investigation. Comey found that the Clintons exhibited “a highly improper pattern of deliberate misconduct.” And that went no where.
Late last summer, the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, James Comey, met with John Giacalone, the bureau official responsible for everything from counterterrorism to counterintelligence across the U.S. Giacalone, a fireplug of a man who started out as a New York City field agent battling organized crime in the 1990s, wanted to brief Comey on a high-profile issue that had been referred to the bureau by the Inspector General of the Intelligence Community. Emails found on the private, unclassified server used by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State contained classified information; Giacalone’s National Security Branch wanted to investigate how the secrets got there and whether anyone had committed a crime in the process. Comey was clear about one thing. “He wanted to make sure it was treated the same way as all other cases,” says Giacalone, who left the bureau in February.

[...]Comey is keeping a close watch on the investigation, getting briefings from team leaders and personally overseeing the case. Agents have been told they may be polygraphed to prevent leaks, the sources familiar with the probe say. “I want to ensure [the Clinton email investigation] is done in the ways the FBI does all its work: professionally, with integrity, promptly,” Comey told Congress in February. “And without any interference whatsoever.”
We'll see.
