So that's why the FBI fought the FOI requests on the Hillary email invest.
https://www.foxnews.com/politics/newly-r...top-review

Quote:Newly released internal FBI emails showed the agency's highest-ranking officials scrambling to answer to Hillary Clinton's lawyer in the days prior to the 2016 presidential election, on the same day then-FBI Director James Comey sent a bombshell letter to Congress announcing a new review of hundreds of thousands of potentially classified emails found on former Rep. Anthony Weiner's laptop.

The trove of documents turned over by the FBI, in response to a lawsuit by the transparency group Judicial Watch, also included discussions by former FBI lawyer Lisa Page concerning a potential quid pro quo between the State Department and the FBI -- in which the FBI would agree to downgrade the classification level of a Clinton email in exchange for more legal attache positions that would benefit the agency abroad. There was no indication such a quid pro quo ever took place.

Quote:On Oct. 28, 2016, Comey upended the presidential campaign by informing Congress that the FBI would quickly review the Weiner laptop. The Justice Department's internal watchdog later faulted the FBI for failing to review the Weiner laptop through much of the fall of 2016, and suggested it was possible that now-fired FBI Agent Peter Strzok may have slow-walked the laptop analysis until other federal prosecutors pressured the FBI to review its contents.

On the afternoon of Oct. 28, Clinton lawyer David Kendall demanded answers from the FBI -- and the agency jumped into action, the emails showed.

Many of the emails found on the computer were between Clinton and her senior adviser Huma Abedin, Weiner's now-estranged wife. Despite claims by top FBI officials, including Strzok, several of those emails were determined to contain classified information.

"I received the email below from David Kendall and I called him back," then-FBI General Counsel James Baker wrote to the agency's top brass, including Comey, Page and Strzok, in an email. "Before doing so I alerted DOJ via email that I would do that."

Quote:Although Kendall's email was redacted, Baker continued: "He said that our letter was 'tantalizingly ambiguous' and made statements that were 'inchoate and highly ominous' such that what we had done was worse than transparency because it allows people to make whatever they want out of the letter to the prejudice of Secretary Clinton. ... I told him that I could not respond to his requests at this time but that I would discuss it with others and get back to him.

"I suggest that we have some kind of follow up meeting or phone call with this group either this evening or over the weekend to address this and probably other issues/questions that come up in the next 24 hours," Baker concluded. "Sound reasonable?"

In a partially redacted response, Strzok agreed to spearhead a conference call among the FBI's top officials the next day.

Quote:n an email also sent Nov. 6 and unearthed by Judicial Watch, Strzok wrote to the FBI's leadership: "[Redacted], Jon and I completed our review of all of the potential HRC work emails on the [Anthony Weiner] laptop. We found no previously unknown, potentially classified emails on the media.”

Strzok added that a team was coming in to "triple-check" his methodology and conclusions.

However, at least 18 classified emails sent from Abedin's account were found by the FBI on the Weiner laptop. And, despite Strzok's apparent claim, FBI officials later conceded they had not manually screened all of the nearly 700,000 emails on the laptop, but instead used computer technology to prioritize which emails to screen as Election Day rapidly approached.

“It is big news that, just days before the presidential election, Hillary Clinton’s personal lawyer pressured the top lawyer for the FBI on the infamous Weiner laptop emails,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “These documents further underscore that the fix was in for Hillary Clinton. When will the Justice Department and FBI finally do an honest investigation of the Clinton email scandal?”

Quote:Separately, another email from Page, apparently sent in response to a Judicial Watch lawsuit, discussed an apparent attempt by the State Department to pressure the FBI to downgrade the classification level of a Clinton email.

"Jason Herring will be providing you with three 302s [witness reports] of current and former FBI employees who were interviewed during the course of the Clinton investigation," Page wrote. "These 302s are scheduled to be released to Congress in an unredacted form at the end of the week, and produced (with redactions) pursuant to FOIA at the beginning of next week.

Page continued: "As you will see, they describe a discussion about potential quid pro quo arrangement between then-DAD in IOD [deputy assistant director in International Operations Division] and an Undersecretary at the State Department whereby IOD would get more LEGAT [legal attaché] positions if the FBI could change the basis of the FOIA withhold re a Clinton email from classified to something else."

God bless Trump and everyone who voted for him. This corruption would be completely out of control now with no knowledge of it by the public had that criminal been elected POTUS.

Quid Pro Quo Confirmed

This is so much worse than Watergate.

The FBI didn't cooperate with Watergate.

Of course, one thing is in common. Hillary lied then when she was working on the investigation and got rejected by her boss. This time her boss was the American people.

This is "Deep State" and why the FBI has to remain politically unaffiliated. Jail time is warranted here and a complete clean out of the FBI.

The FBI and DOJ openly admitted in emails that they were willing to MODIFY an active investigation into the democratic candidate in exchange for some favors. I'm not sure why your brain doesnt absorb the magnitude of that.

It's a full blown version of whataboutism. It's also an attempt to derail the topic with a totally unrelated topic.

Exactly right and they didn’t think there was a chance in hell Trump would/could win. ‘Murican people are pretty smart though, even if it’s more like Spidey-sense.

Does any of this surprise anyone?

What’s equally troublesome is it has taken freaking Judicial watch to get these docs. The Congress, charged with over sight, but given no teeth, were helpless for more than two years.

This, folks, is the deep state aka The Swamp. They simply thought they could act with impunity.

Guess they forgot to pay the premiums on the “insurance policy”...

If true, sure it's significant. I was just too busy picking my jaw up off the floor by the poster acting like there's been no corruption in the trump administration and/or campaign.
