FBI Shuts Down Request for Files on Hillary Clinton by Citing Lack of Public Interest (Video)

FBI Shuts Down Request for Files on Hillary Clinton by Citing Lack of Public Interest (Video)

Most Americans believe it is time for Hillary Clinton to go to jail. 

Not only did Hillary Clinton delete over 30,000 emails, she committed perjury when she swore under oath that none of the emails she sent or received on her private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State were marked classified.

Former FBI director James Comey admitted Hillary Clinton had given classified information to her personal lawyers, among others, who lacked security clearance and yet he, or rather Obama, still recommended no criminal charges be filed.

Comey testified under oath at a hearing before Congress that the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server, which she used to send and receive ‘top secret’ emails, did not warrant pressing criminal charges against her.

In essence, he said, not only was Hillary not smart enough, or qualified, to know that using an unsecured email server put our nations security at risk, but she was incapable of determining what was top secret material was.

The truth is that Comey did not recommend federal charges against Hillary, in part, because he is connected to the Clinton Foundation through the Swiss bank HSBC, Truth Uncensored reported.

 Most Americans believe it is time for Mrs. Clinton to go to jail.  Joe Otto from the Conservative Daily wrote a note to all conservative Americans:

Fellow Conservative,

Oh the arrogance of power… In an interview this week on CNN, Hillary Clinton tried to brush aside all the scandal surrounding her email usage as Secretary of State. “I didn’t have to turn over anything,” she defiantly told the interviewer.

“I’ve never had a subpoena. There’s nothing… again, let’s take a deep breath here, everything I did was permitted by law and regulation,” Hillary Clinton said.

Lie.

On March 4, 2015, immediately after learning of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) immediately served her with a subpoena.

Not only that, but Hillary Clinton’s lawyer responded that his client had received the subpoena. Mrs. Clinton’s lawyer responded to the subpoena on March 27th. In fact, the letter started with the lawyer telling Congress, “This letter will respond to (1) the subpoena duces tecum issued by the Benghazi Select Committee to the Hon. Hillary R. Clinton and served by agreement on March 4, 2015.”

This is the smoking gun. Hillary Clinton claimed she’d “never had a subpoena” and her own lawyer admits to receiving one on her behalf.

It’s time for Mrs. Clinton to go to jail.

The Clinton camp is already trying to backpedal and weasel their way out of this one. I can hear it now… “well, it depends on what your definition of ‘had a subpoena’ is.”

No, there is no way for Clinton to wiggle her way out of this one. All of her emails were subpoenaed, she ignored the subpoena and public records laws by deleting 31,000 of her records, and now she claims that every thing she did was acceptable.

Not only that, but she says you should just be lucky she turned anything over to begin with. Be grateful. To her, you’re not a citizen. You’re a subject.

That’s not how public service works. She should be lucky that we the people haven’t gathered the pitchforks and dragged her out of her house for what she’s done.

When asked about Hillary’s recent lie, White House Spokesperson Josh Earnest replied that he doesn’t “have any reason to contradict what Secretary Clinton has said.” Seriously?

But this is how the Clintons operate. Deny, deny, deny and hope that the public forgets about it. And we both know that the White House will do whatever it takes to protect their own.

Believe it or not, Congress is using the same strategy. Sure, they talk a good talk. But at the end of the day, they are really hoping you just forget about these scandals. That way they don’t have to actually do anything.

But this time, Hillary can’t just make this disappear. Why? Because brave patriots like you won’t allow it. You won’t allow Hillary to sweep this under the rug. That is why you need to FaxBlast Congress now and DEMAND that they arrest Mrs. Clinton immediately!

No more talking her way out of this! Tell Congress to have the Sergeant-at-Arms arrest her immediately.

Sincerely,

Joe Otto

Despite the fact that most American are outraged at the lack of justice in this case, Fox News has reported that the FBI is declining to turn over files related to its investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails by arguing a lack of public interest in the matter.


Ty Clevenger, an attorney in New York City, filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request in March of 2016 asking for a variety of documents from the FBI and the Justice Department, including correspondence exchanged with Congress about the Clinton email investigation.

But in a letter sent this week and obtained by Fox News, the head of the FBI’s Records Management Division told Clevenger that the bureau has “determined you have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject.”

“You must show that the public interest sought is a significant one”

– David M. Hardy of the FBI’s Records Management Division

“Therefore, records regarding your subject are withheld pursuant to FOIA exemptions,” David M. Hardy of the FBI’s Records Management Division told Clevenger.

Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, was investigated by the FBI for using a private email address and server to handle classified information while serving as secretary of state.

In July 2016, then-FBI Director James Comey famously called Clinton’s email arrangement “extremely careless” though he decided against recommending criminal charges.

Though Clinton lost the election, Clevenger is still attempting to obtain documents related to the investigation. He’s seeking to prove she committed perjury, the Washington Times reported.

He specifically asked for all documents resulting from a September 6, 2016 referral to the Justice Department from then-House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz, a Utah Republican.

At the time, Chaffetz asked the department to “investigate and determine whether Secretary Clinton or her employees and contractors violated statues that prohibit destruction of records, obstruction of congressional inquiries, and concealment or cover up of evidence material to a congressional investigation.”

On Aug. 8, the FBI asked Clevenger to detail why the public would be interested.

“If you seek disclosure of any existing records on this basis, you must demonstrate that the public interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests,” the letter stated. “In this regard, you must show that the public interest sought is a significant one, and that the requested information is likely to advance that interest.”

Clevenger expressed disbelief at the request.

“Frankly, I am stunned I should have to explain why my request pertains to a matter of public interest,” Clevenger wrote in an Aug. 11 letter to the FBI.

He cited how Clinton was the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, a former secretary of state and a former senator.
