FBI Director James Comey didn’t recommend a Justice Department criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server and her mishandling of classified information. However, the FBI did recommend a DOJ probe of the Clinton Foundation, and it reportedly went … nowhere:

Buried in a CNN story: FBI asked Justice 2 open case in2 [Clinton] Foundation, but public integrity unit declined. https://t.co/n42TLtjb2y

Justice Department officials decided against an investigation into the Clinton Foundation after the FBI requested the agency open a case into allegations of corruption stemming from Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.
But the Justice Department’s public integrity unit declined to pursue the probe given what it characterized as insufficient evidence, according to a CNN report Wednesday.
What are the odds the same thing would have happened even if FBI Director Comey had asked the DOJ to start a criminal investigation into Hillary’s email shenanigans?
@sarahcwestwood Even if it did, the investigation would go nowhere.

@sarahcwestwood There needs to be an independent council appointed to investigate this!
