FBI Turns Over Hundreds Of Pages Of New Clinton Probe Documents

Tyler Durden's picture

Now that obstructionist lawmakers have finally relented, Congressional efforts to investigate nefarious activities involving Democrats are finally moving forward following several bombshell revelations that the FBI may have turned a blind eye to controversial, potentially criminal actions involving powerful Democrats when FBI Director James Comey drafted a letter absolving Hillary Clinton and closing the bureau’s investigation into her alleged mishandling of classified information before she had even been interviewed.

The Senate Judiciary Committee opened an investigation into the bureau’s handling of the Clinton emails probe in September after these bombshell reports emerged, and today the Hill reports that the Feds have begun turning over to Senate investigators "hundreds of pages of memos" regarding the bureau's probe into Hillary Clinton's private email server.

The sources said the Justice Department notified the Senate Judiciary Committee late Friday and the FBI began transmitting memos soon after to assist Congress in its review of former Director James Comey's handling of the Clinton email case.

 

The memos detail how and when the bureau's leadership declined to pursue criminal charges against Clinton for transmitting classified information on her private email server as secretary of State, an investigation that has remained controversial since the 2016 presidential campaigns.

 

FBI officials declined to comment. "We don't have any information for you," spokeswoman Carol Cratty told The Hill.

This isn’t the first time in recent weeks that the bureau has decided to bow to pressure from lawmakers after damning details surfaced in the media.  In September, Comey, - much like Hillary's former IT consultant Paul Combetta who admitted to deleting Hillary's emails despite the existence of a Congressional subpoena - had his very own "oh shit" moment when a witness confirmed during Congressional testimony that Comey started drafting his letter excusing Clinton months before the investigation was finished. Since then, the bureau has decided to begin turning over all documents requested by Congress, including memos pertaining to the infamous ‘Trump dossier’ after initially resisting a subpoena from the House Intel committee.

The pressure this time emanated from a federal lawsuit that brought the documents to light. Specifically, the lawsuit was filed by Judicial Watch to determine exactly when FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe recused himself from the Clinton email investigation, which was codenamed "Mid Year." McCabe was forced to step aside due to questions about a possible conflict of interest involving hundreds of thousands of dollars of money that flowed to his wife's political campaign from a Clinton ally.

On Friday, Bloomberg reported that in their quest to discover the the FBI Deputy Director may know, Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee threatened to subpoena McCabe next week unless he agrees to appear before their panel.

They intend on pressing McCabe on topics including his role in the FBI’s investigation into former White House National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, said the official, who asked not to be identified discussing the members’ plans. Interest in McCabe goes beyond Flynn, however, the official said.

McCabe's role in the Clinton probe is especially conflicted: last October, the WSJ reported that the political organization of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an influential Democrat with longstanding ties to Bill and Hillary Clinton, gave nearly $500,000 to the election campaign of McCabe's wife, shortly before he helped oversee the FBI "investigation" into Clinton’s email use.

Campaign finance records show Mr. McAuliffe’s political-action committee donated $467,500 to the 2015 state Senate campaign of Dr. Jill McCabe, who is married to Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of the FBI.

 

The Virginia Democratic Party, over which Mr. McAuliffe exerts considerable control, donated an additional $207,788 worth of support to Dr. McCabe’s campaign in the form of mailers, according to the records. That adds up to slightly more than $675,000 to her candidacy from entities either directly under Mr. McAuliffe’s control or strongly influenced by him. The figure represents more than a third of all the campaign funds Dr. McCabe raised in the effort.

The newly disclosed documents, presented in their entirety below, reveal that McCabe did not recuse himself from the long-running investigation until Nov. 1, 2016, just six days before the probe was officially ended and eight days before Trump defeated Clinton in one of the greatest upset victories in modern presidential politics.

After months of inexplicable delays, the chairman of the House Judiciary and Oversight committees,  Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), announced a joint investigation into how the Justice Department handled last year's investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server. The Senate Judiciary Committee had announced its own investigation weeks earlier.

The bureau’s decision to release the documents is a sign that new FBI Director Chris Wray, is attempting to build his own relationship with Congress amid multiple oversight investigations.

Uh, dude, I think the proper ZH nomenclature for that particular firearm is ‘shitgum’.

I hope so, I'd love to see her thrown under the bus by members of her own criminl gang. A nest of vipers.

Maybe, probably.

 

The DNC began taking a radical turn towards leftism & minority politics a few months ago. I think they've already figured out that the donations from the big guys aren't going to be coming in anymore. This is burning bridges, they can't go back now.

The moderates, Labor, etc. have all aged out. The jobs left decades ago, and so did the associated money.

Now the Ritalin generation is moving in to take over the machinery. At lower levels now, but the street is where the work gets done and the party culture as changed.

Antifa will rescue Hillary. I hope she has a big 4k tv and the newest consoles. And is willing to buy takeout for the next decade.

You know every release is an attempt to satisfy investigators, hoping they will stop asking before they get to the oozing, slimy core at the bottom of the pile.

Nothing will happen from this because someone will threaten the "nuclear option":  They will talk about 911 if the investigation goes forward. This talk must be stopped no matter the cost.

Hence the Bush support for the cunt.

If those that say "nothing will happen" start disappearing, that will really freak out those that are worried something might happen while encouraging those in a position to make something happen. Then maybe something will happen. So I say, start the disappearing of the nay sayers!

What happened with the investigation into the FBI-AG? He was suspected of leaking anti Trump materials to the press? IIRC

 

The FBI's top lawyer.

 

How much of the juicy stuff is going to make it past the permanent non fireable Obama appointees installed in critical leadership positions immediately prior to the Obama exit?

 

How many "newspaper reporters" know this stuff but keep quiet because "it's for OUR side, and of course we're in the right"?

 

How many of you fuckers know about treasonous activities against the country of your birth but keep your mouths shut for gain?

Be suspicious of people who have, or crave, power. Never, ever go near power. Don't become friends with anyone who has real power. It's dangerous.

Trump selected Wray to run the FBI so perhaps this was a meaningful choice for the good guys. Then agaim Donald and Jeff selected Rosenstein to be the guy in the on deck circle and that doesn't look like a good addition  to the good guy roster. 

Until the Donald says to Jeff Sessions...You're Fired ...I am hopeful that both Donald and Jeff have a great hand to play but only when they want to win/end the game.  I believe Assange is also holding the Rook until the game is really on the line. I suppose I am a Real Dreamer. A fella can hope can't he.

The real irony is that Hillary's failed campaign is a prime example of the failure of centralized power.

Democrat Parties from 32 states were sending all of their donations to the DNC which in turn was sending it to Hillary's campaign.

The almighty Hillary campaign, the most qualified candidate ever to run, along with the best campaign staff ever assembled, would control all of the funds and based on their expertise, disburse the funds effectively.

But what happened?  Even with the best person in charge, Hillary, along with the best staff, the centralized brain trust did not efficiently disburse the funds back to all of the individual states.

And this is what is happening today with the Federal goverment.  The Federal government is collecting all of this money from the citizens of 50 states with the idea being that this Federal government will more efficiently disburse the funds back to the states.  It has been an epic failure.

"the most qualified candidate ever to run"?..............give us a break..........like Obama, she never has run anything except interference for something or someone..........she didn't even run the Rose Law Firm...........the lady is a true psychopath............she wants to be President and has always wanted to but has never known why...............her only agenda is to accumulate more power unto herself, as if that were an end in itself..........does that make her "the most qualified candidate ever to run"?

"He" is not saying that. He is parroting the meme that was the heart of the "I am with Her" campaign. 

Most qualified

Most money

Most support

Best people behind her

Etc. etc. etc

Ans she still lost to a "moron"

It tells you something about the state of the State. Its in shitty shape and they are Losing Bigly.

Inserenity's picture

I've been saying that for years.

 

The states should fund the FedGov for the purposes laid out in the constitution such as raising standing armies, interstate commerce, ect., not the FedGov extracting money from the citizens and returning it to the states with chunks bitten out and strings attached.

Now I think he should be prosecuted for corruption.

Correction... turned over hundreds of documents in the Clinton email coverup.

The purpose of the "investigation" was to find evidence and then destroy it.  Give those involved immunity for their silence. The whole time it was about hiding the truth and protecting, Obama, Clinton, and Bush...

The FBI turns over documents?

The same FBI that had enough on the Cackler to send the Cackler up the river to run the cigarette store in Cell Block C with Big Momma Martha "protecting" her?

That FBI?

uhland62's picture

That FBI and that WSJ. One as credible as the other.

Rupert Murdoch paid a lot over price for that mouthpiece WSJ to gain a few years of credibility gloss before his manipulations and 'advocacy' are exposed again. 

They could have published that Hillary Clinton had not won the candidacy on merit, but purchased it. Didn't know? Really?

I sure wish they would not put Clinton and probe in the same sentence...its unsettling...
