House investigators to question FBI chief of staff on Hillary Clinton email probe


The chief of staff and senior counselor to FBI Director Christopher Wray is expected to meet with the House Oversight Committee Thursday.

A spokesperson for House Oversight confirmed to the Washington Examiner that Jim Rybicki is expected to testify as part of the committee’s investigation into the Department of Justice’s probe in Hillary Clinton’s private email server, and the decision by then-FBI Director James Comey to announce there would be no criminal charges against the former secretary of state and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.

In a letter to department leadership, they requested interviews with Rybicki, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe and Lisa Page, an FBI lawyer who traded anti-Trump text messages with another FBI agent who had also been assigned to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. – READ MORE


Huma Abedin backed up copies of her emails with Hillary Clinton onto her husband’s laptop, contrary to what she told the FBI and other officials investigating the email scandal, according to a new report.

Abedin, Clinton’s top aide, backed up many of her work-related emails to Anthony Weiner’s laptop after Clinton left the State Department in early 2013, the Daily Mail writes after a examination of her emails.

But Abedin told the FBI that she “lost most of her old emails as a result of the transition” from the State Department.

“She had only accessed through a web portal and did not have a method for archiving her old emails prior to the transition,” according to notes taken during an FBI interview with Abedin on April 5, 2016.

Abedin compounded that statement in June 2016 by telling lawyers from a watchdog group under oath that she didn’t back up emails.

“With respect to those State Department work-related emails on the accounts, what did you do, if anything, to preserve those emails?” asked an attorney with Judicial Watch, according to a transcript of the deposition. – READ MORE


President Trump on Tuesday demanded Hillary Clinton’s former aide Huma Abedin be sent to jail for not properly handling classified information.

“Crooked Hillary Clinton’s top aid, Huma Abedin, has been accused of disregarding basic security protocols. She put Classified Passwords into the hands of foreign agents. Remember sailors pictures on submarine? Jail! Deep State Justice Dept must finally act? Also on Comey & others,” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning.

On Dec. 29, the State Department released emails Abedin sent and received while employed at the State Department during Clinton’s stint as secretary from 2009 to 2011. – READ MORE
