Republicans in Congress demanded the FBI turn over their notes from the agency’s interview with Hillary regarding her private email server.
The agency dragged their feet.
But when the documents were turned over, most of the information was hidden.
Hillary’s emails contained so much classified information that the notes were heavily redacted.
Not even members of Congress possessed the appropriate security clearance to view the notes.
Fox News reports:
A congressional source confirmed to Fox News Tuesday that the House Government Oversight Committee had received a heavily redacted FBI summary of Hillary Clinton’s session last month with FBI agents who interviewed her about her use of a private server for government business. The agents’ notes were provided as well.
Separately, the Republican chairman of the House Government Oversight Committee confirmed that even he does not have a high enough security clearance to read the documents in full.
“As the chairman of the chief investigative body in the House, it is significant I can’t even read these documents in their entirety,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah told Fox News.“This shows how dangerous it was to have this intelligence, highly classified to this day, on the former Secretary’s unsecured personal server where it was vulnerable.”
The fact that portions of the FBI investigative file are heavily redacted and must be held and read by lawmakers in a secure facility on Capitol Hill shows how classified the material remains, despite claims made by the Clinton campaign.
The campaign’s call to release the FBI agents’ notes appears suspect because the material is too highly classified to make public.The FBI told the committee that the documents cannot be released in part or in full without prior agency approval.
“This information being highly classified according to the FBI is in direct conflict with what the State Department and Ms. Clinton have said is on the server. You could not have it both ways,” former military intelligence officer Tony Shaffer said. “You cannot say one day this is unclassified ‘nothing to see here’ and the next day, only certain people can see this and you must not be able to take it outside of a secure facility.”
This just proves Hillary Clinton is a liar.
She claimed she never sent or received any information that was marked classified.
But the redacted notes — clearly hiding information that was so classified not even a committee chair could read it — indicate Hillary should have known classified intelligence was on her server.
The redacted notes also call into question FBI Director Comey’s decision not to recommend criminal charges be brought against Hillary.
As more details emerge, critics are convinced Director Comey failed to recommend charges because Obama endorsed Hillary for President.
Announcing Hillary should be charged just weeks before she was to accept the Democrat Party’s nomination for president would have thrown the race into chaos.
It also may have handed the nomination to Bernie Sanders, a candidate many believe because of his socialist views was too extreme to win a presidential election.
If Hillary was indicted and lost to Trump, Republicans could dismantle Obama’s entire agenda.
Protecting his achievements — namely ObamaCare — is a central reason Obama endorsed Hillary and has fiercely attacked Donald Trump.
And many believe the FBI took a dive on the investigation because the Director got cold feet about involving the Bureau during a presidential election.
