    Why is the Clinton email investigation taking so long?

    The Clintons have been very good at delay tactics in the past. With every scandal, it seems they are able to use legal savoy to delay the process long enough to drop off the radar screen. I thought one of the strength of our legal system is due process and the right to a speedy trial. It seems to me the Clintons have been skirting around the spirit of the law.
    In the email case, why does it take so long to reach a decision whether if a law is broken?

    The committee is controlling the length of the investigation!
    If it were up to the Clintons it would have been closed long ago.
    Many suspect it is the republican led investigating committee prolonging the investigation throughout primaries to keep her off her heels.
    The investigation has already exceeded the time length of  "The Warren Commission" and "Watergate" investigations.
    Not only did Kevin McCarthy admit the investigation was started to hurt her chances of being elected fellow Republican representative Richard Hanna said the same thing.
    If Hilary were not running for president there would have been no investigation! It's been over two years now and millions of tax payer dollars spent. If there was something they could knock her out with they would have done it by now. By no means is Hillary Clinton a saint! No politician is! However this is clearly politically driven.
    They will keep the investigation going through November if Hillary does win the Democrat nomination. It won't stop until she loses.

      I'm sorry but your answer does not make any sense. It is a Democratic White House, FBI appointee, DOJ, that is investigating the abuse of the email...and mishandling of security information. How is this the fault of Republicans?

      The committee is run by a republican & the majority of the panel is republican. It was republicans who pushed for the investigation to begin with. Check out statements by Kevin McCarthy. Bill Clinton didn't oversee his impeachment while in power

      Yes, that investigation was on the Benghazi affair. The email scandal surfaced later and the damaging part was leaked to the New York Times. The Republicans have no control over the FBI, NYT or DOJ.

      Congress controls the investigation process.
      Republicans are the majority in congress. Who is in the white house has no bearing. If it did Nixon would have shut down Watergate and Bill Clinton would have stopped Independent Counsel Ken Starr.

      You make some good points but the Clintons have been around a long time. This latest incident is not a right wing conspiracy. It was Hillary's creation. She chose to create her own server. She chose to conduct business on an insecure network...

    Perhaps we should give the Justice Department and the FBI some slack while they try to insure that an indictment of Secretary Clinton will stick....then Obama can give her a presidential pardon.

      The problem is how much time do they need? They already had a year to look into this. It is not fair to anyone including Hillary Clinton to have this hanging. It seems to me it is not that complicated.
