“Right after the debate where he said, ‘enough of your damn emails,’ he also said, ‘there’s a process — it’s going forward,’” Sanders said of her husband’s remark at a Democratic presidential debate.
She added, “It’s an FBI investigation, and we want to let it go through without politicizing it and then we’ll find what the situation is. That’s how we still feel. I mean, it would be nice if the FBI moved it along.”
Earlier this year, FBI director James Comey said the agency is more focused on conducting a thorough investigation than it is a hasty one.
“The urgency is to do it well and do it promptly,” he said. “And well comes first. [I’m staying] close to this one to make sure we have the resources to do it competently.”
Meanwhile, Clinton’s email scandal continues to grow in terms of just how much government corruption was afoot on her behalf.
Judicial Watch revealed this week that the State Department withheld a key Benghazi email requested in a FOIA lawsuit nearly two years ago. The email in question would have made public Clinton’s private server use before the former top diplomat deleted tens of thousands of emails.
“Now we know the Obama administration consciously refused to give up key information about Hillary Clinton’s email in 2014. It covered up this email both from the court and Judicial Watch,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “This cover-up provided Hillary Clinton enough time to hide potentially thousands of government records. One aim of our court-order discovery will be to get to the bottom of this cover-up.”
