An investigative story concludes former FBI Director James Comey misled Congress regarding the Hillary Clinton State Department emails that were discovered on a computer shared by then Clinton aide Huma Abedin and her husband former Representative Anthony Weiner.
Comey ended the second round of the Clinton email investigation after the FBI “reviewed all of the communications” on the Abedin-Weiner laptop.
According to the story, Comey mislead Congress when he assured the legislative body the FBI conducted a thorough analysis of all the emails.

Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.
“Most of the emails were never examined, even though they made up potentially 10 times the evidence” of what was reviewed in the original year-long case that Comey closed in July 2016, said a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation.
Investigative reporter Paul Sperry explained on Fox News.

Sperry’s work exposes the degree to which the FBI, under the leadership of Comey, went to great lengths to protect then-presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
