Hillary Clinton isn’t taking the FBI reopening the investigation into her email server sitting down.
In a memo sent to Democrats and obtained by NBC News, the Democrat nominee tried to discredit both FBI Direcotr James Comey and his decision to restart the investigation into her email server.
The FBI investigation was resumed after several relevant emails were found of the laptop of former congressman Anthony Weiner during an investigation into his alleged exchanges of sexually charged messages with an underage girl.
Huma Abedin, Weiner’s estranged wife and Hillary Clinton’s top aide, had apparently used the computer to send email, according to The Wall Street Journal.
“In a letter to FBI employees, Comey sought to explain his controversial action and admitted he didn’t intend to create a misleading impression — yet he did exactly that by sending his letter to Congress,” the memo, which was sent out to rally Democrats against Comey, read in part.
While Hillary was issuing screeds against the director of President Obama’s FBI, her retinue was out assuring America that everything was OK. In fact, campaign manager Robbie Mook seemed to indicate they weren’t even worried about this.
“We don’t see it as changing the landscape,” Mook said in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” The issue of Clinton’s private server “has been vetted for some time now and so I think voters are clear. They understand the issue and they’ve already factored it into their decision making.”
“We actually felt a surge of support and momentum,” he added. “So we’re feeling fine.”
