The Federal Bureau of Investigation released several documents Monday morning confirming quid pro quo allegations between the FBI and the State Department. The documents also speak to the “shadow government” operating behind the scenes. Hillary used the shadow government – unelected, secret decision makers – to conceal her emails.
The 100-page collection of documents can be read here. It is part of the FBI’s effort to explain the recommendation not to press any charges against Clinton, made in July by Director James Comey, who some in the Bureau are describing as a “dirty cop”.
Witnesses say that a group of powerful State Department employees attempted to coordinate a document release and the quid pro quo between the FBI and State.
The documents are part four of four released by the FBI.
One revelation in the documents came from an interview with an unidentified person who suggested that Freedom of Information Act requests related to Clinton went through a group sometimes called “the Shadow Government.”
“There was a powerful group of very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or ‘The Shadow Government.’ This group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA process, Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries,” the FBI’s interview summary said.
That group, according to the summary [http://www.cnbc.com/2016/10/17/fbi-releases-100-new-pages-on-clinton-email-probe.html], argued for a Clinton document release to be conducted all at once “for coordination purposes” instead of on a rolling basis as would normally be the case. But the “Shadow Government” did not get its way, and the agency in charge decided for a rolling release, the FBI summary said.
Do people really believe Hillary’s Clinton Foundation doesn’t engage in quid pro quo? We know it’s true from Wikileaks releases of an internal review requested by Chelsea Clinton of all people.
Some people are saying that it doesn’t matter if it didn’t happen which is truly absurd. Give this woman the power of the presidency and you will see how immorality matters.
The release is stunning. It shows Patrick Kennedy of the State Department pressuring, actually bribing, the FBI to lower the classification markings on Hillary Clinton’s emails while the investigation was going on. This is clearly outrageous.
The FBI reports that they did not oblige the State Department however.
We now see corruption in the form of politicization at State, the FBI, and it’s being orchestrated by Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, but let’s all talk about Trump’s bawdy language.
We now have evidence of high-ranking Patrick Kennedy discussing quid pro quo with the FBI.
In one interview summary, a witness described receiving a call from the International Operations Division of the FBI who he says “‘pressured’ him to change the classified email to unclassified”, and that in exchange the State Department “would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more Agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.”
Peter Schweitzer commented about the Clintons and their foundation: “…it fits the pattern which is they are willing to take money from anyone pretty much at any time. You know, and we now know based on this internal review that came out on WikiLeaks that was done by Simpson Thacher, that they did an internal review of the Clinton Foundation, and they said that donors were expecting a quid pro quo in exchange for their gifts. So, everything we assume or thought was the case a year and a half ago has been confirmed by these emails.”
