The imbroglio concerning Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer absorbed much of the U.S. media audience’s attention on Tuesday. But an FBI document dump is a heady reminder that the Trump campaign was not the only one with email problems.
The FBI documents touch on the matter of Blackberrys used by Clinton that were effectively “wiped” through the removal of SIM cards and physical damage. The action arguably constituted the physical destruction of government property, mishandling of classified information, and obstruction of justice.
The FBI document, obtained by Judicial Watch, was hailed by the watchdog group’s president, Tom Fitton, as illustrative of the former administration’s approach to the Clinton investigation.
