DOJ’s Clinton Probe Expected to Be a Bust: Her Lawyers Received FBI ‘Special Treatment’
A U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) probe into accusations of corruption at the hands of Hillary Clinton found nothing of consequence because her lawyers received special treatment, conservative watchdog group Juducial Watch (JW) recently indicated.
Through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, JW obtained 211 pages of new emails from two anti-President Donald Trump FBI offials, Peter Strzok and his lover Lisa Page, the watchdog revealed on January 9.
The emails “detail special accommodations given to the lawyers of Hillary Clinton and her aides during the FBI investigation of the Clinton email controversy,” JW learned.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton stated:
It is quite apparent why the FBI is slow-rolling the release of these Strzok-Page emails – as they dramatically show how senior officials at the Obama DOJ and FBI gave special and favorable treatment to Clinton and her lawyers. As the Obama Justice Department and FBI bent over backwards to protect Hillary Clinton, these agencies broke every law under the sun to spy on her political opponent, Donald J. Trump. AG [Attorney General William] Barr and [FBI] Director [Christopher] Wray must stop the stonewalling about this corruption and reopen the Clinton email investigation.
Clinton has repeatedly claimed she has turned in all relevant emails she sent using a private email account on a private server that was reportedly wiped clean, yet more emails that she failed to turn in keep turning up.
Clinton also claims she did not send any classified information using her private email, but she deleted thousands of those messages, so it is impossible to determine the veracity of her claim. Mishandling classified information by exclusively using a personal email address hosted on a private server could amount to a criminal offense, a fact that may have prompted Clinton to delete thousands of emails.
