Demand Release Of Hillary Clinton’s Under-Oath Testimony–several articles in this

Demand Release Of Hillary Clinton’s Under-Oath Testimony–8hj.,b60

Hillary Clinton’s legal team is moving fast to hide her deposition testimony that was under-oath now that an organization has requested it from the government.

The entire world knows that she has most likely been lying about her email scandal and it is likely that her deposition testimony could conflict with her other statements and more.

It’s absurd that the media won’t cover it so I need Congress to take action and demand the release of her deposition that was taken under-oath!

As my Congressman – publicly demand the release of Hillary Clinton’s under-oath testimony!

FBI Investigation Into Bribery With Clinton Foundation Spans Nation, Multiple Field Offices, Says WSJ

FBI investigators from across the country have been following leads into reports of bribery involving the Clinton Foundation. Multiple field offices have been involved in the investigation.

offices have been involved in the investigation.

A report in Sunday’s Wall Street Journal (WSJ) by Devlin Barrett revealed that agents assigned to the New York field office have been carrying the bulk of the work in investigating the Clinton Foundation. They have received assistance from the FBI field office in Little Rock according to “people familiar with the matter, the WSJ reported. Other offices, including Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., have been collecting evidence regarding “financial crimes or influence-peddling.”

As far back as February 2016, FBI agents made the presentation to the Department of Justice (DOJ), the WSJ’s sources stated. “The meeting didn’t go well,” they wrote. While some sources said the FBI’s evidence was not strong enough, others believed the DOJ had no intention of going any further from the start. Barrett wrote that the DOJ officials were “stern, icy and dismissive of the case.”

Barrett wrote, “‘That was one of the weirdest meetings I’ve ever been to,’ one participant told others afterward, according to people familiar with the matter.”

It appears there was a rift between the FBI and the DOJ about how to move forward with the investigation. Agents in the Washington office were directed to focus on a separate issue related to the actions of former Virginia Governor and Clinton Foundation Board member Terry McAuliffe. Agents inside the FBI believed they could build a stronger case if the investigation of McAuliffe and the foundation were combined.

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe seemed to be caught in the middle of the fight between DOJ officials who appeared to want to slow down or shut down the investigation, and FBI agents who were eager to pour more resources into the investigation.

Barrett wrote, “’Are you telling me that I need to shut down a validly predicated investigation?’ Mr. McCabe asked, according to people familiar with the conversation. After a pause, the official replied, ‘Of course not,’ these people said.”

Some of the WSJ sources told Barrett that a “stand down” order had been given to the FBI agents by McCabe. Others denied that such an order was given.

Preet Bharara, an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, appears to have taken an interest in moving forward from the DOJ side, the Daily Caller’s Richard Pollock reported in August.

Pollock wrote:

The New York-based probe is being led by Preet Bharara, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. Bharara’s prosecutorial aggressiveness has resulted in a large number of convictions of banks, hedge funds and Wall Street insiders.

He said prosecutorial support could come from multiple U.S. Attorneys Offices and stated this was a major departure from other “centralized FBI investigations.”

The story gets more complicated when you factor in that McCabe’s wife, Dr. Jill McCabe had received a $467,500 campaign contribution in 2015 for a state senate race from McAuliffe.

CNN also reported that multiple field offices were “in agreement a public corruption investigation should be launched” with Clinton Foundation officials as a target. The cable news network reported the investigation would have looked at “conflicts of interest by foreign donors and official acts by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State.

FBI agents ‘wanted to investigate the Clinton foundation but were barred by their bosses at the Justice Department’—e headlines–the daily mail-

The FBI has spent the past year investigating the Clinton Foundation over claims they were trading access for donations to the charity, leading to friction between the bureau and the Justice Department.

The FBI has spent the past year investigating the Clinton Foundation over claims they were trading access for donations to the charity, leading to friction between the bureau and the Justice Department.

Agents in New York and Little Rock have been leading the probe, but have been ordered by senior officials in Washington and the Justice Department to scale back the extent of the probe due to a lack of evidence.

The row emerged over the weekend in the aftermath of the decision by FBI Director James Comey to announce the bureau has reopened its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email server – less than a fortnight before the election.

Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign has been thrown into chaos new allegations over her emails, this time contained on a laptop owned by Anthony Weiner, the estranged husband of her longterm aide Huma Abedin, left, who was  investigated by the FBI over a sexting scanda
Last February, according to the Wall Street Journal, the FBI updated the Justice Department on its investigation into the Clinton Foundation.

By August, there was increased tension when the Justice Department learned about the continued FBI investigation.

Officials in Washington feared the probe so close to November’s election could be viewed as political interference.

FBI agents in New York wanted access to laptops surrendered by two of Clinton’s former staff under the terms of a plea agreement to search the machines for evidence relating to their charity investigation.

However, this access was denied as the plea agreements only extended to emails directly relating to possible national security issues.

It is understood the agents in New York had already had access to a computer owned by former New York congressman Anthony Weiner, who is the estranged husband of Clinton’s longtime aide Huma Abedin.

Agents had seized Weiner’s computers as part of a separate probe into allegations he had sexted an underage girl.

During the examination of his laptop, the FBI found emails which they claimed required further investigation.

Director Comey announced the new investigation last week much to the delight of Clinton’s Republican challenger Donald Trump.

The FBI wants to review the emails to see if they contain classified information and were handled properly, the focus of the earlier Clinton inquiry.

Separately Sunday, another law enforcement official said FBI investigators in the Weiner sexting probe knew for weeks about the existence of the emails potentially related to the probe of Clinton’s server.

A third law enforcement official also said the FBI was aware for a period of time about the emails before Comey was briefed, but wasn’t more specific.

In his letter that enraged Democrats , Comey said he’d been briefed on Thursday about the Abedin emails and had agreed that investigators should take steps to review them.

It was not immediately clear Sunday what steps investigators took once the emails were first found to fully advise FBI leaders that additional and potentially relevant messages had been discovered.

The timing of Comey’s letter less than two weeks before Election Day drew criticism from Democrats and some Republicans who cast it as unprecedented and as potentially tipping the scales in the presidential race in favor of Republican Donald Trump.

Energized by the news, the GOP presidential nominee has rallied his supporters, calling the latest developments worse than Watergate and arguing that his candidacy has the momentum in the final days of the race.

Donald Trump said in Nevada following the revelations: ‘We never thought we were going to say “thank you” to Anthony Weiner.’

Trump also highlighted reports that the Justice Department had discouraged the FBI from alerting Congress to the unexpected discovery of the emails, and said the department is trying ‘so hard’ to protect Clinton.

Comey told FBI colleagues in a memo Friday that he was aware the letter to Congress was at risk of being misunderstood, but he said he felt obligated to notify lawmakers about the new emails after having told them that the matter was closed.

Dozens of former federal prosecutors, including former Attorney General Eric Holder, have signed a letter critical of Comey’s decision. And Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid wrote to Comey saying the action may have violated the law.

Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of State has dogged her campaign since early last year. In July, Comey recommended against criminal prosecution after a months-long investigation, but rebuked Clinton and her aides for being careless with classified material.

Justice Department officials who were advised of the FBI’s intention to notify Congress about the discovery expressed concern that the action would be inconsistent with department protocols designed to avoid the appearance of interference in an election. Comey acted independently when he sent several members of Congress a letter about the emails on Friday, said one of the officials.

It was not immediately clear what the Abedin emails were about or what significance, if any, they carried to the Clinton email server investigation.

Tom DeLay: ‘Almost 100’ Agents Threatened to Quit Over Clinton Email Probe

FBI Director James Comey reopened the agency’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails last week because “almost 100” agents threatened to resign before next week’s election, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay told Newsmax TV.

“A few weeks ago, almost 100 agents were threatening Comey that they were going to resign — and that kind of pressure is what turned him around,” DeLay, 69, the majority leader from 2003 to 2005, said on Tuesday’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.” “It wasn’t Comey or his integrity.

“I know he made a huge mistake when he indicted Clinton — though not indicting her — but now he’s trying to turn that around.

“He had to do it now or have all these FBI agents resign,” he added. “That would have probably been a bigger story than what Comey did.

“He got the pressure. He got the notice.

“He understood as far as his own job and being able to go forward in his own job and his reputation,” DeLay said.

“If 100 FBI agents resigned before the election, he would have been toast.”

DeLay — whose new book is “Revival! Revolution! Rebirth!” — said even though Comey announced his findings in July, “those FBI agents didn’t stop working.

“It’s taken them this long, a few months, to get to this point. They didn’t stop working.

“The investigation, he said it was closed, but as far as those FBI agents were concerned, it wasn’t closed. “They were going forward, because they knew that they had to come up with some new information or some new evidence in order to get Comey to open up — particularly when he has this kind of pressure coming from his own agents.”

DeLay said the Obama administration now is attacking Comey — Attorney General Loretta Lynch advised him against telling Congress of his intentions — because “we’re not going to defend him or deny that he did it.

“But the end of that quote is: ‘We’re not going to go down with the ship. Hillary, you’re on your own!'”

Clinton probably knew what Comey was going to do right after he told Lynch, DeLay told Malzberg.

“We do know that he went to the attorney general — and you don’t think the attorney general didn’t pick up the phone and call Clinton? Come on.”

President Barack Obama?

“Oh absolutely,” DeLay said. “They’ve been talking all along.”

He then referenced the June meeting between Lynch and former President Bill Clinton on her private plane at a Phoenix airport. The session lasted 39 minutes.

“That’s why Clinton met the attorney general on the tarmac. They’ve been talking all along,” DeLay said. “We just haven’t had an opportunity to prove it.”

Looking to next week’s election, the former Texas congressman told Malzberg even if Clinton won, “I would start impeachment hearings immediately,” if he were still in the House, “whether she’s pardoned or not” by the president.

“Absolutely,” he added. “You can’t have a criminal serving in the White House as president of the United States and commander-in-chief.

“It’s impossible. So let’s try her in the Senate.”

Obama Expected To Fire FBI Director Once The Election Is Over

President Barack Obama is planning to fire FBI Director James Comey after Tuesday’s presidential election, according to a report in The Daily Mail by an author who has covered the Clintons since 2005.

Writer Ed Klein, who recently published Guilty as Sin about Bill and Hillary Clinton, wrote Monday that Obama has given in to demands from senior adviser Valerie Jarrett that Comey, who was appointed by Obama, must go.

Reports say Jarrett has been pushing Obama to fire Comey as of last week.

“Valerie argued that Comey was interfering deliberately in the election process and had to be stopped,” the New York Post reported last Wednesday, citing an anonymous source. “The president said he was worried about the consequences of taking such an action — the tsunami of outrage that would come his way, and possibly become a major footnote, or worse, in the history of his presidency.”

Klein’s book claims Obama once said appointing Comey was his “worst mistake as president.”

In the Daily Mail on Monday, Klein said Jarrett reminded Obama that Comey’s conduct during the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server has alienated member of both parties, making a move against Comey easier.

Klein said that the plan to fire Comey is in the works, but it is not clear who will actually do the deed or when it will take place.

However, there is also another rumored scenario in which Comey leaves before the ax falls due to internal unrest in the FBI that would only be quelled by Comey stepping down.

“I met with friends from the FBI and Justice and they were all in agreement that Comey’s jerky decisions—opening the case against Hillary without definite cause, then closing it without consulting with his top deputies—was flabbergasting and deeply disturbing for career law enforcement and prosecutors,” Klein quoted an unnamed retired Justice Department official as saying.

“Whatever support and goodwill Jim had until recently has been destroyed,” Klein quoted the source as adding. “He has injured the bureau and it will take a miracle for him to survive this.”

In calling for Comey to be fired, Kurt Eichenwald wrote for Newsweek about the damage the director did to the FBI.

“A huge swath of the public now thinks the FBI is a completely political organization: A large number of Democrats, because of the original letter followed by a week’s worth of leaks from other agents about other investigations, are convinced that the bureau is manipulating the election for the Republicans and cannot be trusted,” he wrote. “Meanwhile, plenty of Republicans are arguing that Comey’s newest findings can’t possibly be true and that he caved to pressure from the Democrats. In other words, no matter what side of the political spectrum anyone is on, they agree that the FBI is political.”
