The State Department restarted their investigation into Hillary Clinton's emails following the DoJ's unanimous recommendation that Attorney General Loretta Lynch not pursue criminal charges for Hillary’s negligence in handling classified documents. FBI insiders now believe a deal was struck when Bill Clinton met Loretta Lynch on a Phoenix airport tarmac in June. Agents have also said they were forced to sign a document that went above and beyond the typical NDA signed when performing investigations
When news broke of the infamous tarmac Lynch-Clinton meeting we said: "Well then, if Lynch says it was a completely random encounter with Hillary Clinton's husband on a tarmac (admit it, that happens often to most people), and nothing was discussed that pertains to official business, then that certainly must be the truth."
We were sarcastic. We may also have been right.
According to The New York Post, which not only cited a source saying that “FBI agents believe there was an inside deal put in place after the Loretta Lynch/Bill Clinton tarmac meeting", but it also reports that FBI agents had been required to sign a Case Briefing Acknowledgment Addendum. To wit:
In an unusual move, FBI agents working the Hillary Clinton email case had to sign a special form reminding them not to blab about the probe to anyone unless called to testify.
As for what that "special form" is:
Sources said they had never heard of the “Case Briefing Acknowledgment” form being used before, although all agents must initially sign nondisclosure agreements to obtain security clearance.
A retired FBI Chief opined on agents signing a Case Briefing Acknowledgment saying:
“This is very, very unusual. I’ve never signed one, never circulated one to others”
Zero Hedge searched for "Case Briefing Acknowledgment" throughout various databases and found no credible hits relating to such a document. Which is odd in light of that by-chance meeting on a tarmac because the document was acknowledged in a July 1 letter from Stephen Kelly, the top legislative affairs official for the FBI in a response to Chairman Charles Grassley's letter requesting more information about the Case Briefing Acknowledgment.
The Clintons continue to display an uncanny ability for creating the best timed coincidences.
