FBI Director Rebuffs Clinton Claim FBI Only Conducting ‘Security Inquiry’ On Emails


FoxNews.com offers a report on FBI Director James Comey (seen in the above FBI photo) disputing Hillary Clinton's claim that the FBI is conducting a "security inquiry" and not a criminal investigation.

Hillary Clinton for months has downplayed the FBI investigation into her private email server and practices as a mere “security inquiry.”
But when asked Wednesday by Fox News about Clinton's characterization of the bureau's probe, FBI Director James Comey said he doesn’t know what "security inquiry" means -- adding, “We’re conducting an investigation. … That’s what we do.”
The FBI director reiterated that he’s “not familiar with the term security inquiry” when told that is the phrase Clinton has used.
As for the timeline for the investigation, Comey, during a briefing with reporters, said he prefers doing the investigation “well” over promptly and said he’s not “tethered” to a schedule.
The briefing comes amid reports that FBI investigators have been meeting with top aides in Clinton’s inner circle, including Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills. The interviews have stoked speculation that the investigation may soon be drawing to a close, in the heat of the 2016 political season.

    We shall see. Krauthammer said the only thing that can stop Clinton is the "FBI primary." Clever.
