Like many Americans, Sen. Elizabeth Warren wants to know why the DOJ hasn't criminally prosecuted anyone responsible for the 2008 financial crisis. On Thursday, Warren released two highly provocative letters demanding some explanations. One is to DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz, requesting a review of how federal law enforcement managed to whiff on all 11 substantive criminal referrals submitted by the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC), a panel set up to examine the causes of the 2008 meltdown
FBI through extensive interviews was satisfied with Hillary Clinton's explanations regarding her emails. It is also revealed that her use of private email server was due to advice from Colin Powell yet the Republicans are not satisfied and plan further investigation.
While news media and the FBI have published information regarding Hillary Clinton's emails they have refrained from publishing information regarding on ties between Donald Trump and Russia
In a NYTimes Op-Ed, George W Bush's ethics lawyer said – " It would be highly improper, and an abuse of power, for the F.B.I. to conduct such an investigation in the public eye, particularly on the eve of the election. It would be an abuse of power for the director of the F.B.I., absent compelling circumstances, to notify members of Congress from the party opposing the candidate that the candidate or his associates were under investigation.
Hillary Clinton sparked an FBI backlash, which is now surfacing, when she stonewalled the Feds, who were trying to investigate her private server, Julian Assange said during the John Pilger Special, courtesy of Dartmouth Films, which is now available in full on RT.
FBI Director James Comey argued privately that it was too close to Election Day for the U.S. government to name Russia as meddling in the election.
After lengthy investigations, officials also believe that a hacking of Democratic emails was aimed at disrupting the election rather than electing Mr. Trump. Law enforcement officials say that none of the investigations so far have found any conclusive or direct link between Mr. Trump and the Russian government. And even the hacking into Democratic emails, F.B.I. and intelligence officials now believe, was aimed at disrupting the presidential election rather than electing Mr. Trump.
Director James Comey says the FBI's review of new emails involving Hillary Clinton doesn't change the decision not to press charges against Clinton over her use of a private server.
The FBI is investigating companies they believe may have been fronts for Trump-Russia business deals. The investigation includes financial transactions by Russian individuals and companies thought to have links to Trump associates. The transactions under scrutiny involve investments by Russians in overseas entities that appear to have been undertaken through middlemen and front companies, two people briefed on the probe said.
The F.B.I. director wants the Justice Department to refute Mr. Trump’s contention that Barack Obama ordered the tapping of his phones, a claim that Mr. Comey says is false, officials said.
