FBI 'Reopens' FOIA Case On Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting After Getting Caught In Lie

Tyler Durden's picture

Last October Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) received the following letter from the FBI regarding his FOIA request for any documents related to the now-infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting in June 2016.  The letter quite simply stated there were "no records responsive to your request."


Of course, since the DOJ has subsequently provided numerous documents which include email traffic with various FBI officials (see: FOIA Dump Reveals Collusion Between Lynch, FBI And Media To Bury Bill Clinton Meeting), we now know that the FBI's original response was either (i) just a simple reflection of their complete incompetence (best case) or (ii) an outright lie (worst case).

Alas, it seems as though the FBI has finally admitted in a new letter sent to Sekulow that maybe, just maybe, there are "records potentially responsive to your request" and, as such, they've 'reopened' the case to search for those records. 

"...your request has been reopened under the FOIPA number listed above as the FBI has determined records potentially responsive to your request may exist.  We are currently in the process of searching for any responsive material."

FBI Letter



Meanwhile, and for obvious reasons, the FBI's continued refusal to acknowledge basic facts about a FOIA case that have been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt by DOJ records prompted a scathing retort from Sekulow who posted the following to the ACLJ website earlier:

After being caught hiding the truth from the American people, the FBI has just “reopened” our FOIA case.


The ACLJ just received a letter from the FBI bureaucracy informing us that it has “reopened” our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request into the clandestine meeting between former Obama Attorney General Lynch and former President Clinton while the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI were conducting a criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton.


The FBI’s letter – dated one week after we publicly excoriated the FBI for lying to us when the Comey-led FBI told us last October that it had “no” records responsive to our request – now states that “records potentially responsive to your request may exist.”


It is unbelievable that the FBI bureaucracy still only admits that some documents “may exist.”


We know they exist.


What else was the FBI hiding?


While we appreciate that the FBI has “reopened” the case file and is now “searching” for documents responsive to our duly submitted FOIA request from more than a year ago, it stretches the bounds of credulity to suggest that the FBI bureaucracy just discovered that “potentially responsive” records “may exist” on its own accord.

Sekulow also appeared on Fox News this morning to discuss the 'reopened' case:


Perhaps it's time to refile all of those FOIA requests related to the various Hillary Clinton investigations that were submitted under the Obama administration...who knows what treasures may have been 'overlooked' in the initial FBI/DOJ responses...

Round and Round the Banana Republic Carousel we go, who will get convicted? Only the Elite Leftist Shitheads know

Whats really interesting is that they held onto the original FOIA request and pulled it back and responded to it...

10 months later. When typically you would expect them to just trash the thing...

Mr. Sickavme, would you please share with us, all, what that says to you?

Pffft- more of the Clinton Way:  Obfuscate until there is no more case.   Bill will play the senility card, and Lynch the race card, and this will go on for years,  unless Trump can find a prosecutor that can't or hasn't been bought.

In the real world, if a service provider or some good we paid for doesn't perform, we have some level of recourse up to and including NOT patronizing the offending provider.
Now, shouldn't we have that same option with our tax dollars?
This is some dramatically sub-par service from the FBI. I would like to choose to not support or fund them with my dollars.
There are a litany of other government agencies I can add to that list.

If Trump's FBI will not release all of these documents, including the fully unredacted "Talking Points" email, then Trump needs to make further changes at FBI? Who are they protecting and why?

The first thing that Trump should have done was purge the FBI, DOJ, and IRS.

Got to love how the IRS will come after you for not filling your income tax return the "right way" but if you ask them what is the "right way" you are told "we can't give tax advice. It's called selective enforcement aka bull shit.

rosies - Why stop at those three; purge the entire swamp. But, are there enough honest patriots to fill the positions?

Unfortunally, maybe not.

They have to go through all of the messages now and shred or delete all of them that incriminate Lynch and anyone else who was in the den of thieves.  One thing's for sure, they will never shine a light on the money that flowed through the Clinton Foundation.

The importance of this matter to the future of America cannot be understated. THIS IS THE INFLECTION POINT. Trump's presidency and the very future of America is hanging in the balance.  NO MORE DISTRACTIONS; NO MORE COVER-UPS.  IF RULE OF LAW IS TO BE UPHELD, THEN THE CLINTON FOUNDATION NEEDS TO BE TAKEN DOWN, AND THE NARCOTICS TRAFFICKING (AMONG OTHER THINGS) NEEDS TO BE BLOWN WIDE OPEN.


Tactically, the first move is to announce charges, make public arrests, and then watch the rats come out of hiding (or disappear)...

I'm almost embarrassed to admit this, but if Chris Christie were in charge at the DOJ, heads would have started rolling long ago.

Jay is on the ball. I wonder how large his legal team is? ACLJ, Project Veritas and Judicial Watch, wikileaks, and others have really exposed alot of the dirty people in DC. Hard to beleive no one at the fbi went after the fellow Krame whom Project Veritas caught teaching Hillary supporters how to riot, etc.

Ehh, let the evidence stack up. Do you think that those guys have been sleeping until this came to light? That is why they could not turn Charlotte into a race war, too many people watching with cameras. Hard to start a false flag unless it is outside of the border right now. Pretty desperate to put an Obama supporting jewish fake white supremacist behind the wheel, only to be exposed. That is a sign of weakness.

respectfully disagreeing,"hard to believe..." No, it is the crux of the issue, criminals doing whatever-the-fuk they need to do to retain power, influence, MONEY, and re-election.

It will take some serious backbone to overcome this majority of scum bags with dirt on dirt being heald over each other. ASSUME that any and every agency, cabinet position(sessions), that DOES NOT act in conformity of the law are one of the scum.


simple shit maynard...

It means the new (Trump-Sessions-Wray) administration is looking for ways to come clean while allowing FBI-DOJ to save face.
Everyone with a brain knows the FBI investigational "matter" under corrupt Comey was a cover up to protect Hillary.
But there is a new Sheriff in town - FBI chief Chris Wray.

FBI can't say "gee we falsified the Hillary Lynch case".
It would weaken the FBI ability to function under the new Chief.

So they are coming clean, slowly --
and using magic ambivalent words like "may".
Notice the change started once Wray was in place. Sessions would not have wanted to usurp Wray or whoever the new Chief would be's territory.

No way, they will put two of their finest rookie FBI agents on this, a male and a female, both minorities.

It means that there is one individual bureaucrat who knows that they are about to get busted hiding the truth and have now gone full CYA.gov

Omen IV's picture

Comey / Brennan / Clapper / McMaster - no integrity

FBI / NSA / CIA / NSC - no integrity

The number of institutions caught keeps growing - last week Binney outed the Russia mime by NSA  - this week Sekelow on the FBI

in another few weeks there will  be no real institutions left just need to disband all of them and start over

I read somewhere that Brennan actually voted for the Communist Party back in the 1990's. Makes sense why Obama appointed him as head of the cia. He's a snake.

A snake?

Is a snake something you tie to a post and hit with a flame thrower for 20 minutes? No it isn't. You kill a snake with a rake.

So he is not a snake. Something much worse.

No, don't start over, just disband.

FBI Anon has already let us know 80% of Congress is involved in Hillary's crime syndicate aka "Foundation". Drugs, guns, bribes, blackmail pedoville, treason.

So if it is busted completely your govt falls and all the other country's the Clinton Foundation blackmailed or swindled will come after the USA.

You can guess the loudest Congressional diverters are the most involved and covering their fear with phony anger, so you won't look under the covers. McCain, Schumer, Feinstein (even has Lynch's former Atty), Schiff, Pelosi, Mad Max Waters, Wasserman.


So it has to be taken apart carefully piece by piece, to prevent the entire USA sand castle from crumbling all at once.

This is the kind of Lawyer FBI Peter Strzok who was dumped out of Mueller's Prez hit team needs to contact.

Strzok needs a trusted attorney who has a public organization like:
Sekulow of ACLJ
Fitton of Judicial Watch
Klayman of Freedom Watch

So that he is both protected and can speak in confidence.
Otherwise he knows too much for Mueller-Hillary to let him stay alive.
