RNC: Comey’s Eleventh-Hour Announcement Doesn’t Change The Fact That The Clinton Foundation Is Under Investigation for Bribery

FBI director James Comey’s eleventh hour announcement that once again he does not recommend Hillary Clinton be charged over the illicit use of her homebrew email server as Secretary of States doesn’t change the fact that the Clinton Foundation is still under investigation for bribery, the RNC said Sunday.

“The FBI’s findings from its criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton’s secret email server were a damning and unprecedented indictment of her judgment,” RNC chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement. “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,” Priebus added.

Comey said Sunday in a letter to Congress the FBI “reviewed all of the communications that were to or from Hillary Clinton” in the newly-discovered 650,000 emails found on disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner’s laptop. The FBI has “not changed its conclusions” that Clinton shouldn’t face any charges for her behavior.

Meanwhile, the FBI investigation into Clinton Foundation for bribery spans across the nation in multiple field offices.
