The fat lady hasn’t sung yet in this back-and-forth, nail-biting opera known as the presidential election, and Democratic nominee Hillary still has legal problems notwithstanding the FBI’s refusal to recommend charges on her email scandal.
In response to FBI Director James Comey’s letter to Congress Sunday recommending that no charges be brought against the former secretary of state, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus issued a statement.
“The FBI’s findings from its criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s secret email server were a damning and unprecedented indictment of her judgment,” the statement said. “The FBI found evidence Clinton broke the law, that she placed highly classified national security information at risk and repeatedly lied to the American people about her reckless conduct. None of this changes the fact that the FBI continues to investigate the Clinton Foundation for corruption involving her tenure as secretary of state. Hillary Clinton should never be president.”
Last week it was confirmed that the FBI still had the Clinton Foundation under investigation, despite instructions from the Department of Justice to “stand down” and drop the matter altogether.
Tension between the Department and the Bureau shifted into overdrive Friday when FBI Director James Comey announced that he was re-opening the investigation against Hillary Clinton on the use of her private email account to conduct official business while serving as secretary of State.
Fox News reported Wednesday that the Clinton Foundation investigation is now a “very high priority” — despite the reported stand down order.
The continuing Clinton Foundation investigation was duly noted on social media.
Reminder: The Clinton Foundation is still under FBI investigation.

In his surprise letter to Congress, Comet said that after eight days of sifting through hundreds of thousands of newly-discovered emails and “based on our review, we have not changed our conclusions that we expressed in July with respect to Secretary Clinton.”
