Trump Tweets About Explosive Clinton Email Story, Warns He ‘May Have To Get Involved’

Font Size:

President Trump in a Saturday series of tweets accused the FBI of ignoring “tens of thousands” of “Crooked Hillary Emails” during the Clinton email investigation and warned that he “may have to get involved.”

“Big story out that the FBI ignored tens of thousands of Crooked Hillary Emails, many of which are REALLY BAD,” Trump tweeted. “Also gave false election info. I feel sure that we will soon be getting to the bottom of all of this corruption. At some point I may have to get involved!”

According to the Washington Examiner, the president “appeared to be referencing” a Thursday RealClearInvestigations report about a “technical glitch” which kept FBI technicians from comparing Clinton’s emails in FBI hands with emails discovered on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

RealClearInvestigations reported:

Only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.

“Most of the emails were never examined, even though they made up potentially 10 times the evidence” of what was reviewed in the original year-long case that Comey closed in July 2016, said a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation.

Yet even the “extremely narrow” search that was finally conducted, after more than a month of delay, uncovered more classified material sent and/or received by Clinton through her unauthorized basement server, the official said. Contradicting Comey’s testimony, this included highly sensitive information dealing with Israel and the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas.

Clinton was reportedly “never confronted” with the new information, nor was it analyzed for possible national security damage.

“’The FBI only looked at 3000 of 675,000 Crooked Hillary Clinton Emails.’ They purposely didn’t look at the disasters. This news is just out. @FoxNews,” tweeted Trump. “‘The FBI looked at less than 1%’ of Crooked’s Emails!”
