Here in the boiler room at www.allenbwest.com, we often discuss how to make new revelations about Hillary Clinton’s lies and corruption seem “new.” If you’re outraged as story after story is ignored by the mainstream media, and sadly it would appear, by voters, join the club.
It’s a terribly sad indictment of the current state of affairs if the reaction to each subsequent “Hillary lied” is “yes, so what else is new?”
Well, how about some small comfort. We’re not the only ones outraged.
The Wall Street Journal reports, A senior FBI official involved with the Clinton investigation told Fox News this week that the “vast majority” of career agents and prosecutors working the case “felt she should be prosecuted” and that giving her a pass was “a top-down decision.”
The Obama administration—the federal government, supported by tax dollars—was working as an extension of the Clinton campaign. The State Department coordinated with her staff in responding to the email scandal, and the Justice Department kept her team informed about developments in the court case.
So, yes, and…? Well, as these stories continue to come out, seems it will soon be harder and harder to ignore the criminal activity.
Fox News reports today FBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a “quid pro quo” between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News.
“This is a flashing red light of potential criminality,” Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah, who has been briefed on the FBI interviews, told Fox News.
He said “there was an alleged quid pro quo” involving Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy and the FBI “over at least one classified email.”
“In return for altering the classification, the possibility of additional slots for the FBI at missions overseas was discussed,” Chaffetz said.
As Fox News previously reported, interviews released earlier this month, known as 302s, reveal the serious allegation that Kennedy applied pressure to subordinates to change classified email codes so they would be shielded from Congress and the public. Fox News was told as far back as August 2015 that Kennedy was running interference on Capitol Hill. But Kennedy, in his FBI interview on Dec. 21, 2015, “categorically rejected” allegations of classified code tampering.
So of course the $64,000,000 question after all is of this is, “yes, and…?” What are the consequences? What is going to be done?
And sadly, the answer is probably nothing. We can only pray the electorate is somehow waking up and will turn out in enough numbers to beat Hillary and beat the cheat.
