On Friday, the political world was rocked by the FBI’s stunning announcement that it would be reopening the investigation into Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state.
The emails in question were found on a device shared by Clinton aide Huma Abedinand her now-estranged husband, sexting pervert (and possible pedophile) Anthony Weiner.
On Saturday, the spokesman for the Republican National Committee, Sean Spicer, was interviewed by CNN’s Michael Smerconish and explained that Abedin may have broken federal laws, The Daily Caller reported.
Citing the OF-109 disclosure form that federal employees sign indicating that they understand they have a legal obligation to turn over all classified material they possess upon leaving the State Department, Spicer stated that if the emails on Abedin’s device contained classified material, she could face jail time.
“It’s a separation agreement that states simply [that] people understand when leaving government that they are maintaining no classified information, they understand their legal obligation to protect further classified information and safeguard any potential disclosures of that,” Spicer explained.
Spicer went on to say that Clinton claimed she had turned over all relevant documents upon leaving the department — something that turned out to be a lie. If Clinton lied about that, it isn’t difficult to imagine that Abedin lied as well.
“While we don’t know the facts, while we don’t know what’s going on, we have continued to see a pattern that they say they tell us everything — we know everything — that they’ve disclosed, and time and time again we find out that that is not the case,” Spicer stated.

This reopened investigation has reminded the American people that the Clintons, and the people they surround themselves with, cannot be trusted with this nation’s secrets.
This investigation won’t be concluded by Election Day, but just the fact that it needed to be reopened should be enough to cause millions of Americans to reconsider their vote.
