“So far, investigators have found scant evidence tying Clinton to criminal wrongdoing, though they are still probing the case aggressively and charges have not been ruled out,” The Washington Post wrote Tuesday in what appears to be a pre-ordained outcome.
Scant evidence? She will not only be found not guilty as CNN sources are predicting, we will be told “investigators have found scant evidence tying Clinton to criminal wrongdoing” and her excuse that she made a mistake violating national security will be accepted by the media just as they accepted Ben Rhodes self-confessed lies about the Iran nuclear deal.
It’s not only that, the DoJ agreed to not ask at least one crucial question.
According to the same Washington Post report, Hillary’s longtime aide who is also an attorney – Cheryl Mills – briefly walked out of the questioning during an FBI interview. The State Department employee was asked about the procedure used to produce emails to the State Department so they could be released publicly.
Mills said it was attorney-client privilege but it goes to the core of the issue as to whether or not Hillary told employees to remove the confidential classification markings from emails.
The DoJ under Loretta Lynch agreed to not let this line of questioning be permitted even though it’s critical.
Mills had memory problems during the interview.
She didn’t recall the emails “being a major area of conversation or engagement.”
She did not recall having conversations about security vulnerabilities.
A Washington Post analysis of Clinton’s publicly released correspondence found Clinton wrote 104 emails that she sent using her private server while secretary of state that the government has since said contain classified information. The Post made a point of mentioning other employees did the same but they failed to mention Hillary used a personal server to do it. They were on government email.
Hillary will be interviewed soon and will get similar protections during the process. Who knows what deals the DoJ made in terms of questioning.
