Is Crooked Hillary Finally Getting Exposed?

Without the Obama Administration to protect Crooked Hillary or Crooked Comey to bury investigative information some swamp data is beginning to come to the surface.

 

 

 

 

Is it possible that Obama inspired corruption is finally beginning to unravel to show everyday Americans that nefarious goings-on was perpetrated in front of our very eyes?

 

I am guessing if Crooked Hillary is exposed enough that she won’t go down alone.

Grassley: Comey Wrote Clinton Exoneration Statement Before Email Investigation Ended

…in early April or early May 2016, Mr. Comey had already decided he would issue a statement exonerating Secretary Clinton.

 

HR Clinton vs. FBI

 

Senator Chuck Grassley (R-IA), chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, sent a letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray to inform him that the committee found in unredacted parts in transcripts that former FBI Director James Comey decided to write a statement to exonerate then-presumptive Democrat presidential candidate before the FBI finished its investigation into her emails.

 

Grassley wrote:

 

According to the unredacted portions of the transcripts, it appears that in early April or early May 2016, Mr. Comey had already decided he would issue a statement exonerating Secretary Clinton. This was long before FBI agents finished their work. Mr. Coney even circulated an early draft statement to select members of senior FBI leadership. The outcome of an investigation should not be prejudged while FBI agents are still hard at work trying to gather the facts.

 

OSC [Office of Special Counsel] attorneys questioned two witnesses, presumably Mr. [Jim] Rybicki [Comey’s Chief of Staff] and Ms. Trisha] Anderson [Principal Deputy General Counsel of National Security and Cyberlaw], about Mr. Comey’s July 5, 2016, statement exonerating Secretary Clinton. The transcript of what appears to be Mr. Rybicki’s interview contains the following exchange:

 

This is the portion of the transcript that Grassley provided:

Here is a portion from what may be Anderson’s interview:

 

Anderson’s interview portion

 

Grassley and the other senators have asked Wray to provide the committee all drafts of Comey’s statement that closed the investigation, including the one from April or May, along with all of the records “related to communications between or among FBI officials regarding Comey’s draft statement closing the Clinton investigation. These documents include “all memoranda or analyses of the factual or legal justification for the announcement.”

 

The committee also wants the records “provided to the Office of Special Counsel in the course of its now closed Hatch Act investigation of Mr. Comey.”

 

Does this add new credence to those who suspected the fix was already in for Hillary to get off? It’s possible. After all, a week before Comey’s press conference, a local news crew discovered that then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with Hillary’s husband Bill on a tarmac at an Arizona airport. As Professor Jacobson noted at the time:

 

Neither Lynch nor Bill Clinton are dummies. They both know that such a private meeting creates the appearance of impropriety regardless of what was discussed. Bill Clinton’s wife is being investigated by the FBI — why do you think he dropped in for a chat with Lynch?

 

Of course they didn’t discuss the case. They didn’t need to.

 

If there was no appearance of impropriety, why did Lynch wait until a local news crew, apparently tipped off, asked her about it?

 

It feeds a narrative of the Clintons acting like the fix is in, with Hillary repeatedly bragging that there is no way she’s going to be indicted.

 

On July 5, 2016, Comey gave a detailed press conference to exonerate Hillary even though the found found serious problems and mishandling of classified information. He said he could not recommend charges because “no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case because no bad intent.”

 

Lynch decided the following day to accept Comey’s recommendation not to prosecute Hillary.

 

Earlier this month, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) published 413 pages of memos from the DOJ that showed the tarmac meeting was planned. The ACLJ wrote:

 

We have just obtained hundreds of pages in our ongoing investigation and federal lawsuit on former Attorney General Loretta Lynch’s tarmac meeting with former President Bill Clinton while the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI had an ongoing criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. The results are shocking.

 

First, the Comey FBI lied to us. Last July, we sent FOIA requests to both the Comey FBI and the Lynch DOJ asking for any documents related to the Clinton Lynch plane meeting. The FBI, under the then directorship of James Comey, replied that “No records responsive to your request were located.”

 

The documents we received today from the Department of Justice include several emails from the FBI to DOJ officials concerning the meeting. One with the subject line “FLAG” was correspondence between FBI officials (Richard Quinn, FBI Media/Investigative Publicity, and Michael Kortan) and DOJ officials concerning “flag[ing] a story . . . about a casual, unscheduled meeting between former president Bill Clinton and the AG.” The DOJ official instructs the FBI to “let me know if you get any questions about this” and provides “[o]ur talkers [DOJ talking points] on this”. The talking points, however are redacted.

 

In January, the Justice Department inspector general announced “he will investigate the actions of the Justice Department and FBI in the months leading up to the 2016 election.” The investigation includes if Comey followed department policies. Comey, who was still FBI director at the time, promised cooperation. CBS News reported at the time:

 

The review will examine Comey’s news conference in July 2016 in which he said that the FBI would not recommend charges. During his announcement, Comey delivered an unusual public statement for an FBI chief by chastising Clinton and her aides as “extremely careless.”

 

It will also review the two letters he sent to Congress about the case in the final days before the 2016 election. Clinton and her aides said the disclosure of “new” emails – found on a laptop belonging to Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin – less than two weeks before Election Day hurt her in several battleground states.

The fix was in! Memos show Comey exonerated Hillary before investigation concluded – but, that’s not all

If you’re going to conduct a legitimate investigation, it’s probably a good idea to wait until all the facts come in before actually coming to a conclusion, much less drafting a statement about the decision you plan to make.

 

Of course, if the ‘fix is in,’ why not go ahead and get your paperwork over with, right?

 

James Comey has yet again found himself in the national spotlight, this time over memos obtained by the Senate Judiciary Committee in their role of investigating Comey’s May 9 firing which show that the former FBI director had begun drafting a statement exonerating Hillary Clinton before all witnesses had even been interviewed.

 

 

In fact, the exoneration statement was so premature that the FBI hadn’t even interviewed Clinton herself yet.

 

Either Comey and his cohorts had a crystal ball, or the so-called ‘investigation’ into Clinton’s emails was corrupt to the core.

 

The revelations come from interview transcripts of Comey’s chief of staff, James Rybicki, and FBI counsel Trisha Anderson, which were given last Fall as a part of an Office of Special Counsel investigation into the FBI’s role in investigating Clinton’s emails.

 

Even though the transcripts are heavily redacted, they still show that the former FBI director began work on an exoneration announcement in either April or May of 2016, when the FBI had yet to interview 17 witnesses, including Clinton herself.

 

When was Clinton eventually interviewed? July 2, three days before Comey’s big reveal.

 

From the Daily Caller:

 

In a letter to the FBI, Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham also noted that Comey’s draft was prepared even before two Clinton aides, Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson, had reached what the two Republicans called a “highly unusual” immunity deal with the Justice Department.

 

The limited immunity deal prohibited investigators and prosecutors from asking about conversations between the two Clinton aides and Platte River Networks, a Denver-based tech firm that maintained Clinton’s server after she left the State Department.

 

Which begs the question:

 

 

Grassley and Graham, like the rest of us, wonder how Comey could have possibly performed an impartial investigation if his mind seems to have already been made up.

 

“Conclusion first, fact-gathering second — that’s no way to run an investigation,” the senators wrote to the FBI. “The FBI should be held to a higher standard than that, especially in a matter of such great public interest and controversy. The outcome of an investigation should not be prejudged while FBI agents are still hard at work trying to gather the facts.”

Despite initial refusal, Judge orders FBI to make details of Clinton email probe public

U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg ordered the FBI to produce uncensored court documents describing the grand jury subpoenas issued to force Clinton’s internet service providers to turn over information related to her private server use, according to a statement released by Cause of Action Institute.

 

The ruling was made in response to a motion filed in June as part of a suit brought by Cause of Action Institute and Judicial Watch. The organizations claim the Department of State violated the Federal Records Act by failing to maintain records related to Clinton’s handling of classified information.

 

Boasberg justified his ruling on the basis that the set of documents in question “rehashes information already made public, thus obviating any need for secrecy.”

 

Cause of Action President and CEO John J. Vecchione praised the decision in a statement released Thursday following the court’s ruling.

 

“I applaud the court’s opinion. The government attempted to end a case with evidence no one could review. This order makes public details submitted by the government about the FBI’s efforts to recover then-Secretary Clinton’s unlawfully removed emails,” he said. “Americans deserve to know the full scope of that investigation, and we, as Plaintiffs, should have an opportunity to contest the relevance of the government’s facts.”

 

Former FBI Director James Comey called Clinton’s use of a private email address and server to handle classified information “extremely careless” in his July Congressional testimony but stopped short of filing charges.

 

The requested documents relate specifically to subpoenas related to emails Clinton sent on two Blackberry accounts during her first few weeks in office.

 

Boasberg’s order overrules objections made by the Trump administration, who previously claimed that publicly releasing the documents would violate grand jury secrecy rules.

 

The order comes days after the FBI refused to turn over documents related to their investigation into Clinton’s private email server, citing a lack of public interest to justify denying the FOIA request.
