Watchdog Finds More Evidence Of Hillary Clinton Investigation Failures

Documents turned over to Judicial Watch continue to suggest that the investigation was looking to achieve a predetermined conclusion without consideration of the evidence.

A popular conservative watchdog group discovered yet more evidence of failures in the methodology and operation of the Hillary Clinton investigation.

Judicial Watch, a leading conservative government watchdog organization, has been responsible for a number of important revelations in the last couple of years concerning misdeeds and wrongdoing within the Barack Obama administration. In more recent times, they’ve been the source for veritable oceans of information concerning the goings-on of the ‘deep state.’

Now, they’ve come forward with a new information procured thanks to the Freedom of Information Act. According to the 424 pages that they released today, disgraced Federal Bureau of Investigation agent Peter Strzok had a larger role in the Clinton investigation, and its public face, than many knew, and busted James Comey’s ‘straw man’ scheme, raising more questions about the Clinton investigation.

One email from the 424 pages of FBI records released in response to a successful FOIA lawsuit filed in June 2018, showed that Strzok, the disgraced former FBI agent who showed obvious partisan bias, wrote the initial draft of the October 2016 letter concerning Anthony Weiner and his part in the Hillary Clinton email scandal.

Specifically, the former agent wrote the first draft of the letter James Comey sent to inform Congress that Hillary Clinton emails had been discovered on the laptop of disgraced former Congressman and mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner.

More interesting still, however, are the contents of another email, which suggest that the FBI had not finished reviewing former Secretary of State Clinton’s emails by the time then-Director Comey sent a second letter to Congress.

That letter restated his belief that she should not be charged with a crime.

The documents that Judicial Watch received as part of this most recent batch were produced as part of a lawsuit, which forced the Department of Justice to respond to a Freedom of Information Act request filed over 12 months ago.

The initial request wanted all drafts of James Comey’s statement which closed the Clinton email investigation, all records of email communications concerning the statement closing the investigation, and all records previously provided to the Office of Special Counsel concerning its closed investigation of the former FBI Director.

Among other revelations in the documents, one showed that Strzok and another FBI official, Jon (last name redacted) authored the first draft of the notification to Congress.

That revelation came in an email from October 26, 2016, a full month after the agency discovered that the emails were on the laptop in the first place.

On Saturday, November 5, 2016, FBI Chief of Staff James Rybicki sent the director a redacted draft document, along with commentary, calling it a “revised straw man.” The file was named “New Proposal,” and was attached to the message.

The ‘new proposal’ was, apparently, a draft of the letter that Comey sent to Congress concerning their review of the 694,000 Hillary Clinton emails found on Anthony Weiner’s computer.

According to another page of the June 2018 report from the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General, the deliberations regarding the letter began on November 3rd, and ended “very early” on November 6th.

Even though Rybicki suggested on November 5, that the investigation into the contents of the email had not yet been finished, Comey’s letter to Congress, completed the very next day, said that “we reviewed” the communications between to and from Hillary Clinton, and that the FBI’s opinion had not changed concerning charges for her.

In other words, before the review of emails was completed, they had already written a letter, stating that they would not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton.

Of course, Comey eventually admitted that his letter, delivered to Congress in July 2016, which also declared that no charges should be filed against her, was drafted as much as a month earlier.

According to RealClear Investigations reporter Paul Sperry, only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails found on the laptop were ‘directly reviewed’ for classified information or incriminating information.

Reviewing those 3,077 documents took a three-man-team twelve hours.

The next day, Comey allegedly released the letter stating that he recommended no charges yet again.

According to Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton, these new emails reveal, once again, that the investigation was corrupt and dishonest.

These allegations caused Fitton to ask at what point Jeff Sessions will finally demand an honest and earnest investigation of national security crimes committed by Hillary Clinton.

He certainly seems to have a point. In January 2018, the State Department began to turn over emails found on the Weiner laptop to Judicial Watch.

Out of the first 798 such documents turned over, 18 classified emails were found.

The watchdog organization is fighting with the State Department for a full production of documents, but they claim that they only have 3,000 of the ‘hundreds of thousands’ of emails on the computer owned by Wiener.

The more that the group looks into the way that the Hillary Clinton investigation was performed, the less it seems like there was any desire to properly investigate her at all.
