Can YOU say ‘Political Interference?’ We KNEW you could…
Hillary’s been under investigation for the last year. No, not just those emails, either. Did THAT come up in the primaries? Don’t you think Bernie would have thought that was, you know, RELEVANT information to the Democratic process?
Do you think THIS would have changed the complexion of Decision 2016? Don’t forget, back in JUNE, before Bernie cashed in his 30 pieces of silver, even HE was hitting this issue.
But somehow HILLARY wants you to think SHE’S a VICTIM here, right? Read on:
Prosecutors with the U.S. attorneys office in the Eastern District of New York — which Loretta Lynch led before taking over as attorney general last year — refused to allow FBI investigators probing the Clinton family charity to review emails found on devices turned over this year by two of Clinton’s lawyers during the separate investigation into the mishandling of classified information on Clinton’s private email system.
…The Journal’s report largely confirms reporting in August from The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Richard Pollock that the FBI and several U.S. attorneys offices were conducting an unorthodox, joint investigation into the Clinton Foundation.
…While the investigation has gone forward, the Justice Department has stymied the investigation at several turns, according to The Journal.
The DOJ refused to grant the FBI the power to issue subpoenas or conduct formal interviews. It also refused to convene a grand jury to weigh evidence in the case.
More pushback occurred in August, when a senior DOJ official contacted the FBI’s deputy director, Andrew McCabe, to voice his displeasure that New York field office agents were continuing the investigation even though the DOJ had declined to provide investigative support.
The official was “very pissed off” that the FBI was continuing its efforts, according to The Journal.
…Still other sources denied that McCabe issued a “stand down” order. They asserted that McCabe ordered investigators to continue on their investigative path.
McCabe’s Aug. 12 phone conversation with the senior DOJ official would seem to suggest that he supported the investigation.
“Are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?” McCabe asked the DOJ official, according to a Journal source who was familiar with the conversation.
“Of course not,” the official reportedly said, after a brief pause.
The new report also details a presentation that FBI officials made to the Justice Department in February to lay out the case against the Clinton Foundation. —Daily Caller
Are we seeing a civil war between faithful public servants and pro-Hillary partisan hacks?
It wouldn’t be the FIRST politicization during this administration.
