Sooner or later, somebody has to say, “Enough is enough.” Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is worthy of an independent prosecutor but what’s even worse is how the Obama administration’s Justice Department is now blatantly covering for Hillary Clinton and doing their best to see to it she avoids scrutiny during the election season.
From The Daily Caller:
Department of Justice officials filed a motion in federal court late Wednesday seeking a 27-month delay in producing correspondence between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s four top aides and officials with the Clinton Foundation and Teneo Holdings, a closely allied public relations firm that Bill Clinton helped launch.
If the court permits the delay, the public won’t be able to read the communications until October 2018, about 22 months into her prospective first term as President. The four senior Clinton aides involved were Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Michael Fuchs, Ambassador-At-Large Melanne Verveer, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin.
The State Department originally estimated that 6,000 emails and other documents were exchanged by the aides with the Clinton Foundation. But a series of “errors” the department told the court about Wednesday evening now mean the total has grown to “34,116 potentially responsive documents.”
Yeah, right. “Errors.”
Seriously, what the hell? TWO YEARS? Look at this convoluted mess:
U.S. District Court Judge Rudolph Contreras, a President Obama-appointed judge, had previously ordered the State Department to release the requested documents by July 21. But Department of Justice lawyers informed Contreras Wednesday night that “the [State] department discovered errors in the manner in which the searches had been conducted in order to capture documents potentially responsive to plaintiff’s request.” The motion was filed by Justice Department attorney Joseph Borson on behalf of the State Department.
Borson also provided new details about how few resources the State Department has devoted to answering 106 separate Freedom of Information Act requests that are pending before it, many of them ordered by federal judges. Only 71 “part-time” retired foreign service officers are being used to review all of the pending FOIA requests.
Combine this with Loretta Lynch’s absurd “coincidental” meeting with Bill Clinton at the Phoenix Airport and you have shenanigans going on that would make Richard Nixon blush.
This is where I tend to get frustrated with GOP leadership. This is a situation where every prominent Republican, particularly GOP leaders, should be on every network and cable news show and quoted in every newspaper outlet clamoring for an independent prosecutor to look into Hillary Clinton’s emails. It is obvious, now that Hillary Clinton has secured the delegates needed to win the Democratic nomination, the Obama administration will do all it can to shield her from scrutiny and especially, prosecution.
At this point, I believe the FBI could back up a full truckload of evidence to Lynch’s office and she wouldn’t file charges.
Time for something new.
