Two weeks ago the FBI told lawyer Ty Clevenger they would not release files regarding Hillary Clinton’s emails because there was “not enough public interest.” That myth was quickly dispelled with the outcry from America to see the records and the FBI suddenly has no choice but to listen. Tiring of obstruction and lies, the people have demanded facts and the Bureau has responded by reversing their decision; they will release the records.
A new letter has been received by Clevenger confirming the change in position. Clevenger had immediately appealed to the Justice Department after getting the original denial and DOJ official Sean O’Neill says the department agrees the records are part of the email investigation and should be made public;
“Any records concerning the FBI’s investigation of obstruction of justice are currently being processed by the FBI along with the remainder of the Clinton email investigation file. The FBI is publicly posting all releasable records on a rolling basis. The FBI will continue to process and post subsequent releases of responsive records until processing of the entire investigative file is complete.”
Clevenger says it is a step in the right direction and likely indicates the DOJ wanting to put some distance between itself and what could be seen as the FBI’s mess;
“James Comey created this mess, and DOJ is not going to protect him.”
However, as Clevenger pointed out, there is still much to be done. He wants a special prosecutor assigned to investigate Comey and Clinton’s numerous scandals. It seems that lawmakers around the country are taking measures toward that end.
Earlier this week Clevenger won the ruling in Maryland that will open an investigation in whether Clinton’s lawyers will face discipline for their role in the email scandal. In addition, it was revealed this morning that Representative Trey Gowdy is pushing to make former FBI Director Comey state exactly when he decided not to charge Clinton due to the fact that is was certainly before the investigation was finished.
