Plot / Description

"The facts about Hillary Clinton's emails? | The Briefing"

Voiceover

FBI Director James Comey released to Congress an unbelievably vague letter that was light on facts and heavy on innuendo, and it only serves to give Republicans a new line of attack against Hillary Clinton. But the more information that has come out, the more overblown this all seems and the more concern it has created about Director Comey's actions. Let's walk through what we know.  
 
Republicans said at the beginning of this that the FBI case that was closed in July had been re-opened. But that's been debunked. And law enforcement sources say that the emails in question were never withheld by Hillary Clinton or the Clinton campaign. Reports say that the emails were not to or from Hillary Clinton. Or even ever on her server. In fact, it's entirely possible that they are all duplicates of emails the FBI looked at months ago. 
 
So if that's the case, why send this letter in the first place? You're probably just as puzzled and outraged as we are. Former Justice Department officials say this violated protocols intended to prevent action that could be seen as influencing the election - and Attorney General Loretta Lynch reportedly told him not to do it for this very reason. So Director Comey owes it to the American people to say what he has, and both campaigns agree on that point.  
 
We're beyond confident that there is nothing at issue here that would be cause to revisit the decision announced back in July. Look, Republicans have been trying to use Hillary Clinton's emails to bring her down since the very beginning of this campaign.  
 
We put together a Benghazi special committee. What are her numbers today? 
 
They've failed every time because you've had her back. More than ever, we need your help to push back on their phony partisan attacks. We have just days left to elect Hillary and stop Donald Trump, and that's what really matters.
