Trump: FBI Didn’t Cost Clinton The Election

Hillary Clinton is “guilty as hell,” and the FBI’s investigation of her emails was not the reason she lost the election, according to Donald Trump.

The Department of Justice’s inspector general revealed Thursday that federal investigators will examine whether the FBI violated any policies or laws in its scrutiny of the private server Clinton used while she headed the State Department. Some of the Democratic presidential nominee’s allies have accused FBI Director James Comey of helping Trump win the White House race.

“What are Hillary Clinton's people complaining about with respect to the FBI?” Trump asked on Twitter. “Based on the information they had she should never have been allowed to run - guilty as hell. They were VERY nice to her. She lost because she campaigned in the wrong states - no enthusiasm!”

According to The Hill, the DOJ probe will focus on allegations that the FBI’s actions affected voters’ decisions. Eleven days before the election, Comey told Congress that the bureau was reopening its investigation because agents had discovered emails concerning Clinton on Huma Abedin’s computer. The longtime top Clinton aide shared the computer with her husband, former Democratic New York Rep. Anthony Weiner, whose sexting habit was the subject of an FBI probe.

Comey also may have influenced the election when, in July, he told lawmakers that Clinton had been “extremely careless” in sending and receiving emails with sensitive government information. However, the bureau declined to recommend criminal charges.
