So, about that Swamp Draining…
It looks like it’s time to examine the ‘Deep State’.
It’s no secret that under Obama the DOJ and the FBI became political.
There are some real questions about Loretta Lynch’s private ‘tarmac’ meeting with Bill Clinton as his wife was being investigated by the FBI.
There are questions about why Lynch told James Comey to call it a ‘matter’ and not an investigation.
But if you thought that the Clinton sympathy was just at the top, you’re mistaken.
The FBI is declining to turn over files related to its investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails by arguing a lack of public interest in the matter.
Ty Clevenger, an attorney in New York City, filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in March of 2016 asking for a variety of documents from the FBI and the Justice Department, including correspondence exchanged with Congress about the Clinton email investigation.
So much for the ‘most transparent administration ever’.
It looks like the denial of FIOA requests is a hard habit to break.
Check out this lame excuse:
But in a letter sent this week and obtained by Fox News, the head of the FBI’s Records Management Division told Clevenger that the bureau has “determined you have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject.”
“Therefore, records regarding your subject are withheld pursuant to FOIA exemptions,” David M. Hardy of the FBI’s Records Management Division told Clevenger.
Did the FBI not see what was going on at rallies during the 2016 campaign?
That looks like sufficient interest to me.
But not to the FBI.
Though Clinton lost the election, Clevenger is still attempting to obtain documents related to the investigation. He’s seeking to prove she committed perjury, the Washington Times reported.
He specifically asked for all documents resulting from a September 6, 2016 referral to the Justice Department from then-House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican.
At the time, Chaffetz asked the department to “investigate and determine whether Secretary Clinton or her employees and contractors violated statues that prohibit destruction of records, obstruction of congressional inquiries, and concealment or cover up of evidence material to a congressional investigation.”
Clevenger is shocked at the response that he received from the FBI.
“Frankly, I am stunned I should have to explain why my request pertains to a matter of public interest,” Clevenger wrote in an Aug. 11 letter to the FBI.
He cited how Clinton was the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, a former secretary of state and a former senator.

The fact that Hillary mishandled classified email in a way that James Comey described as ‘extremely careless’ and faced no consequences is disgusting.
She deleted 30,000 emails and used BleachBit to cover her tracks.
She smashed phones and computers.
She put national security at risk for her own convenience.
It appears that she had an elaborate pay-to-play scheme with the Clinton Foundation.
And the FBI is wondering why the public would want to know if she committed perjury?
Are you kidding me?
Only the corrupt Swamp Things would think that the public wasn’t interested.
Or complete idiots.
