It has become increasingly clear that there is a rotten element at the FBI. Information has been leaked countless times over the last year, usually to hurt the Trump administration. Now it looks as though some information is being held back intentionally to avoid hurting members of the Obama administration.
Real Clear Investigations has the story:
Here’s One Unverified File the Feds Won’t Leak: About Loretta Lynch
The FBI had little problem leaking “unverified” dirt from Russian sources on Donald Trump and his campaign aides – and even basing FISA wiretaps on it. But according to the Justice Department’s inspector general, the bureau is refusing to allow even members of Congress with top security clearance to see intercepted material alleging political interference by President Obama’s attorney general, Loretta Lynch.
That material – which has been outlined in press reports – consists of unverified accounts intercepted from putative Russian sources in which the head of the Democratic National Committee allegedly implicates the Hillary Clinton campaign and Lynch in a secret deal to fix the Clinton email investigation.
“It is remarkable how this Justice Department is protecting the corruption of the Obama Justice Department,” said Tom Fitton, president of Washington-based watchdog Judicial Watch, which is suing for the material.
Lynch and Clinton officials as well as the DNC chairman at the time, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, have denied the allegations and characterized them as Russian disinformation.
CNN and MSNBC will surely get to the bottom of this any day now.
