It was all a sham. The FBI tech guys never came up with wizardry to sort them. They reviewed 3,000 of the 670,000 emails in just a few hours, drank a glass of wine to celebrate and closed the books. It is unknown where the Weiner laptop is today.

https://www.realclearinvestigations...k_of_weiner_laptop_emails_never_examined.html

A chunk of the article about the decision to re-open

Lynch -- who had admonished Comey to call the Clinton case a “matter” and not an investigation, aligning FBI rhetoric with the Clinton campaign, and who inappropriately agreed to meet with Bill Clinton aboard her government plane five days before the FBI interviewed Hillary Clinton — sought to keep the Weiner laptop search quiet and was opposed to going to Congress with the discovery so close to the election.

"We were quite confident that somebody is going to leak this fact, that we have all these emails. That, if we don’t put out a letter [to Congress], somebody is going to leak it,” then-FBI General Counsel James Baker said. “The discussion was somebody in New York will leak this.”

Baker advised Comey that he also was under obligation to update Congress about any new developments in the case. Just a few months earlier, the director had testified before Hill oversight committees about his decision to close the case. Baker said the front office rationalized that since Clinton was ahead in the polls, the notification would not have a big impact on the race. The Democratic nominee would likely win no matter what the FBI did.


What they actually did:

Suddenly, however, the impossible project suddenly became manageable thanks to what Comey described as a “huge breakthrough.” As the new cache of emails arrived, the bureau claimed it had solved one of the most labor-intensive aspects of the previous Midyear investigation – having to sort through the tens of thousands of Clinton emails on various servers and electronic devices manually.

Advanced new “de-duplicating" technology would allow them to speed through the mountain of new emails automatically flagging copies of previously reviewed material.

Strzok, who led the effort, echoed Comey’s words, later telling the IG’s investigators that technicians were able “to do amazing things” to “rapidly de-duplicate” the emails on the laptop, which significantly lowered the number of emails that he and other investigators had to individually review manually.

But according to the IG, FBI’s technology division only “attempted” to de-duplicate the emails, but ultimately was unsuccessful.
The IG cited a report prepared Nov. 15, 2016, by three officials from the FBI’s Boston field office. Titled “Anthony Weiner Laptop Review for Communications Pertinent to Midyear Exam,” it found that “ecause metadata was largely absent, the emails could not be completely, automatically de-duplicated or evaluated against prior emails recovered during the investigation.”


The absence of this metadata -- basically electronic fingerprints that reveal identifying characteristics such as To, CC, Date, From, Subject, attachments and other fields – informed the IG’s finding that “the FBI could not determine how many of the potentially work-related emails were duplicative of emails previously obtained in the Midyear investigation.”

Contrary to Comey’s claim, the FBI could not sufficiently determine how many emails containing classified information were duplicative of previously reviewed classified emails. As a result, hundreds of thousands of emails were not actually processed for evidence, law enforcement sources say.

“All those communications weren’t ruled out because they were copies, they were just ruled out,” the federal investigator with direct knowledge of the case said. The official, who wished to remain anonymous, explained that hundreds of thousands of emails were simply overlooked. Instead of processing them all, investigators took just a sample of the batch and looked at those documents.

After Comey announced his investigators wrapped up the review in days – then-candidate Donald Trump expressed skepticism. “You can’t review 650,000 emails in eight days,” he said during a rally on Nov. 7.

I think the public is growing tired of the media circus that is happening between Trump and the MSM. I don’t think non-partisans will have an appetite for Hillary and co to be indicted and prosecuted, not that she doesn’t absolutely deserve it.

It’s amazing that the MSM has virtually ignored the Trump dossier situation and the Hillary campaign’s involvement in manufacturing it and used their ‘friends’ in DC to muck up the Trump administration.

The Democrats, justice system, and MSM are losing credibility with non-partisans, and it will not serve them well.

At this point- I am not interested in Hillary. She is ancient, corrupt, history. What I am interested in is cleaning up the corrupt deep state and getting to the truth of what their actions were so that this garbage never happens again. The MSM is protecting them because the MSM is complicit- they got bought off on a large scale and they have political interests at stake as well.

As I have stated- even if Obama or Clinton were indicted as I think evidence will show that they should be- I think that Trump should and would pardon them in the interest of repairing the divide in the nation. But that is only after the truth is revealed.

If only the DOJ Inspector General had weighed in on this and decided whether to pursue further action.

I think Comey was self interested and got corrupted more by his desire to make himself look good than by his political leanings. He got an inch deep, then a foot deep and then over his head in corruption and he was dragged into it by Clinton and Obama. I think his past history shows that he is more of an incompetent putz than he is corrupt. What he ended up doing was illegal and corrupt.

The inspector general's report provided the information for the article you see. This article researched that information and brought it to more public knowledge for the under informed (you). The IG does not prosecute- he offers to the information to those who will. I think that special prosecutor John Huber and his team is working on such cases.

I sure hope so. Otherwise you can just give up on the federal government

You acknowledge the facts, that Comey & Strzok both lied about investigating the emails found on Weiner's laptop, you just don't care because the IG hasn't locked them up yet? Is that the gist of it?

If you aren't interested in her why do you post about her more than anybody else? Almost seems like you have the hots for her.

Hillary is little more than emblematic of how hypocritical the posters going after Trump are. I bring her up as an example as needed. She is an exhibit from history at this point. Nearly everything that Trump has been accused of she has actually done or enabled to be done and far worse. When the final curtain on this horrid long running DC play comes down, we will see that she corrupted everything she touched, along with Obama.

Hillary slept around with a whole bunch of porn stars while her wife was at home nursing their son? :confused:

You bring up hillary and obama more than anybody in the world. Saintpaulguy is right, you are just doing a "yabut" or a "look over here don't mind all the horrible things going on with my god over there". Having a great black president really caused some deep and lasting trauma to your brain.

I wouldn't call Webb Hubbel a porn star by any stretch of the imagination. :) No, Hillary was an enabler and a person who went after the women who accused Bill. But you know that.........

I was against Obama, but not because he was black. That is just a little bit of leftist race baiting by you- lacking intellect you go low. No I would have loved to have seen Ben Carson or any number of blacks as President and certainly there are more great ones to come who I would love to have as President. Obama was an awful President black, half white or white- it wouldn't have mattered. He was probably the worst President in our history.

Bush Jr. and Nixon are the worst since FDR.

The worst in our history? Pure hyperbole my god you’re delusional. He was a very good President and an honorable and decent human being unlike your POS Trump. Obama won two landslides for a reason. Trump will be a one term loser who lost the popular vote to the most unpopular candidate in history.

I am unhappy with Bush Jr. these days. But Obama is the worst.
Maybe in your opinion he is the worst but your opinion is clearly wrong not only to anybody with a brain but history proves it. Like I said he caused some long lasting trauma to your brain, you should seek help.

A) This is EXACTLY what you always do with Trump. "Now you've got him" and things like that. The difference is that you spent a couple of months telling us how imparital Horowitz was.

B) The report from the Boston field office doesn't say that the FBI wasn't able to review all the emails. It doesn't even say they were unable to dedup. It just says they couldn't automatically,completely de-duplicate:


https://www.scribd.com/document/381806664/2016-Election-Final-Report-06-14-18-0#from_embed

The FBI ultimately “identified 13 confirmed classified email chains, the content of which was duplicative of emails previously recovered during the investigation
.”None of these emails were marked classified, but 4 of the 13 were classified as Secret at the time sent and 9 were classified Confidential at the time sent. The FBI determined that Abedin forwarded two of the confirmed classified emails to Weiner.
191 The FBI reviewed 6,827 emails that were either to or from Clinton and assessed 3,077 of those
emails to be “potentially work-related.”
The FBI analysis of the review noted that “ecause metadata was largely absent, the emails could not be completely, automatically de-duplicated or evaluated against
prior emails recovered during the investigation” and therefore the FBI could not determine how many of the potentially work-related emails were duplicative of emails previously obtained in the Midyear investigation.

It's like listening to Napoleon drone on about how much better conditions are under the pigs than they were under Farmer Jones, years after the takeover of Manor Farm.

It feels like people are making the following argument:

Everyone in government is crooked.
therefore, it doesn't matter if Trump is crooked.

Or: Everyone is government is crooked.
Therefore, Trump looks better by comparison.

My feeling - if all of my neighbors let their dogs crap on my yard, the crap from the Great Dane does not make the crap from the poodle smell better by comparison. Crap is crap. You want me to ignore the crap in the back yard, because there is allegedly more crap in the front yard. I still say crap is crap. and I'm the poor bastard who has to pick it all up before I mow the lawn.

Do you think your God will frown on you for supporting a criminal (Trump) while falsely demeaning a good man (Obama?)[emoji848]

I just don’t get why all of Trumps excellent hires are turning out to be criminals and falsely accusing Trump??
I also don’t get why all of these Republican law enforcement type are picking on one of their own?

Pretty clear to me right from the start both sides were/are corrupt. Only real difference is one side was given a pass and the other is being raked over the coals now.
