When the FBI obtains a search warrant for an electronic device, they search for terms related to the crime. In the case of Weiner, the FBI was searching for terms related to child pornography. Thus, the FBI searches for child pornography related terms.This is obvious, but it’s also important, and everyone seems to have glossed over it.
One of the first terms to be searched for would likely be “lolita”; an extremely common slang term used among child predators in reference to underage children they find attractive. Flight logs revealed that, on at least 26 separate occasions, Bill Clinton accompanied sex offender Jeffrey Epstein on his Boeing 747, which Epstein had nicknamed the “Lolita Express.” He allegedly had a team of traffickers who procured girls as young as 12 for him and his fellow passengers on their way to “Orgy Island,” a 72-acre island called Little St. James.
The plane “was reportedly outfitted with a bed where passengers had group sex with young girls” according to Fox News. There were eleven separate occasions where Bill Clinton was reported to have boarded Epstein’s plane, but flight logs show the number is more than double that; 26 separate occasions between 2001 and 2003.
In total, Epstein was charged with sex abuse, witness tampering, and money laundering. He took a plea deal and was in prison for 18 months, and under house arrest for another 12 months. In addition, he was ordered to pay compensation to the victims for their suffering. In exchange, no federal charges were brought against him or his accomplices.
The U.S. Secret Service declined to answer multiple Freedom of Information Request Act requests filed by Fox News regarding further flight documentation. A former secret service agent said that the only way this could have been possible was if Clinton had personally rejected the request. Furthermore, not one place but the flight logs—when they weren’t missing names entirely—showed a record of Bill Clinton’s travel. No emails, not in the travel records, and not even in the Clinton Library.
What about Huma Abedin’s “life insurance” folder?
The FBI searched for child pornography related terms, wound up inside Huma’s “Life Insurance” folder, opened up an investigation into the Clintons, and didn’t specify the contents of any emails. The emails’ contents were damning enough to convince Comey to announce the reopened investigation days before the election, but sensitive enough to make him stay silent.
The wording of Comey’s letter to Congress references what the FBI is looking for and what they found:
In connection with an unrelated case [child pornography], the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation [into Hillary’s server] … I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation [into child pornography].
Those are Comey’s words with added clarification. That is what they are looking for, and that’s how they wound up investigating Hillary Clinton. This is not speculation, this is implication.
Back in July, Comey said he could not find sufficient evidence to prosecute Hillary Clinton due to lack of intent, and he was adamant about that stance, not to mention under an immense amount of pressure from both Democrats and Republicans. Whether intentionally or not, Comey sided with the Democrats. Which is why the vague nature of his letter to Congress is so important. It was sent mere days before the election, and Comey was well aware of that. He knew what kind of effect this would have on the election, just like he knew the last time around.
But this time, whether intentionally or not, he sided with Republicans, and he didn’t care what anyone said about him, called him, or speculated. Comey had to have thought that whatever the FBI found was important enough to change the outcome of the Presidential election.
And he did.
Comey can’t disclose the details of an ongoing investigation and can’t make any obvious attempt interfere with the election. But he could, and did, tell Congress that he wanted to “supplement” his testimony. The FBI had enough of Clinton’s emails to supplement Comey’s testimony weeks ago when they’d obtained the newly discovered emails. If Comey was willing to wait weeks to announce it, he could have waited a few more days until after the election if the evidence wasn’t anything devastating.
But he didn’t. He waited until a little over a week before the American people vote for the next President of the United States.
To reiterate: The FBI searched for child pornography terms, wound up inside Huma Abedin’s “Life Insurance” folder, opened up an investigation into Clinton, and found new and previously deleted emails in said folder. Something convinced Comey to announce that an investigation into Clinton was launched days before the election (could have waited longer), and didn’t disclose what might have been inside for reasons unknown.
This is likely why.
