Testifying in a House Judiciary Committee hearing over a completely different matter, FBI Director James Comey was asked a question about the Clinton email server investigation and the White House’s insistence that she is not the subject of an investigation, nor is there any national security concerns.
Steve Chabot (R-OH): “This is a matter of considerable import. Is there anything that you can tell us as to when this matter might be wrapped up one way or the other?”
Comey: “I can’t, congressman, as you know we don’t talk about our investigations. What I can assure you is that I am very close personally to that investigation to ensure that we have the resources we need, including people and technology, and that it’s done the way the FBI tries to do all of it’s work: independently, competently and promptly. That’s our goal, and I’m confident that it’s being done that way, but I can’t give you any more details beyond that.”
One thing is for sure, if the White House is denying importance at the same time the FBI head is saying that he is “very close personally,” there is at least a tremendous amount of smoke, if not actual fire.
