The FBI has expanded its investigation into Hillary’s emails into a criminal probe aimed at Hillary and her aides for possible lies told to the FBI during it’s investigation. The FBI takes these charges, which can carry a five year prison sentence, very seriously. When they are given bad information, the cost of the investigations increase exponentially. The FBI is specifically looking in U.S. Code 18, Section 1001:
(a)Except as otherwise provided in this section, whoever, in any matter within the jurisdiction of the executive, legislative, or judicial branch of the Government of the United States, knowingly and willfully—
falsifies, conceals, or covers up by any trick, scheme, or device a material fact;
makes or uses any false writing or document knowing the same to contain any materially false, fictitious, or fraudulent statement or entry;
shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than 5 years or, if the offense involves international or domestic terrorism (as defined in section 2331), imprisoned not more than 8 years, or both. If the matter relates to an offense under chapter 109A, 109B, 110, or 117, or section 1591, then the term of imprisonment imposed under this section shall be not more than 8 years.
Subsection (a) does not apply to a party to a judicial proceeding, or that party’s counsel, for statements, representations, writings or documents submitted by such party or counsel to a judge or magistrate in that proceeding.
(c)With respect to any matter within the jurisdiction of the legislative branch, subsection (a) shall apply only to—
administrative matters, including a claim for payment, a matter related to the procurement of property or services, personnel or employment practices, or support services, or a document required by law, rule, or regulation to be submitted to the Congress or any office or officer within the legislative branch; or
any investigation or review, conducted pursuant to the authority of any committee, subcommittee, commission or office of the Congress, consistent with applicable rules of the House or Senate.
If this statute sounds familiar, it should. It’s the same statute that was used to send Martha Stewart to prison. Besides investigating possible lies, the FBI is also doing their own classification of the emails, probably because they don’t trust the Obama caliphate. The FBI does not usually open investigations into that act unless they have reason to believe that they were given false information.
The FBI is already angry at Obama for announcing that their investigation has found no wrongdoing. Needless to say, the FBI didn’t agree with that statement and has accused the White House of attempting to pressure them into giving Obama the result he wants. In the end, the Injustice Dept. under Loretta Lynch would decide whether to prosecute or not, no matter how much evidence is produced. If that should happen, do not be surprised if a strategic leak of the FBI investigation results are leaked to the press.
