Comey came with an information saying that the chance of Hillary’s server being hacked is “reasonably likely”.
A recent FBI evaluation of the Clinton’s case pointed out that there is a chance that it was hacked by foreign hackers.
Then-FBI Director James Comey’s original report said that while “we did not find direct evidence that Secretary Clinton’s personal email system was successfully hacked”. He added that it is “reasonably likely that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s private email account.”
The statement was affirmed in a letter from Senate Homeland Security Committee chairman Ron Johnson to FBI Director Christopher Wray.
It also said that Comey edited the original statement. He switched the phrase ‘reasonably likely’ with ‘possible.’

“This statement was edited to downgrade the assessment that it was ‘reasonably likely’ that hostile actors had gained access to Secretary Clinton’s private email account,” Johnson wrote.
“Instead, the edited statement simply read it was ‘possible’ that those events occurred – the formulation Director Comey ultimately used in his public statement on July 5.”
This happened after the FBI Director changed other phrases such as ‘grossly negligent’ to ‘extremely careless’ in their evaluation. With this, the findings changed from criminal to aimless actions.

FBI insiders at the time were “99 percent sure” that multiple hackers hacked the email server that Clinton used while she was secretary.
Texas Rep. Michael McCaul confirmed that Comey had firstly said that Clinton’s server was ‘likely’ hacked.
“She took those devices overseas against the State Department’s wishes and now we find out, as James Comey told me previously, that it’s very likely that foreign adversary nations got into her private server,” he said.
McCaul said the likelihood of foreign hacks were “In my opinion, quite frankly … treason.”
If being hacked by foreign agents is a crime, what do you call it when someone tries to cover that up?
