BREAKING: FBI Hands Over 7,000 NEW Documents to State Dept From Weiner Laptop in Hillary Email Scandal
The FBI has turned over 7,000 new documents from Anthony Weiner’s private laptop to the State Department as part of Judicial Watch’s lawsuit related to last year’s Hillary Clinton email case, Fox News reports.
Bravo Judicial Watch! This is a big win! The investigation into Hillary’s email scandal must be reinvigorated and properly handled.
Via Fox News:
Judicial Watch and State Department representatives appeared in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Thursday over the group’s Freedom of Information Act suit seeking Clinton emails from her tenure at the State Department.
It emerged during the hearing that the 7,000 new documents were turned over. The trove is expected to contain some emails sent by Weiner’s estranged wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
The State Department was ordered in November to turn over 500 pages of Clinton-related documents a month to Judicial Watch.
President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton wasn’t impressed with the slow process of only handing over 500 pages per month. Fitton told Fox News, “This pushes this out until 2020 and beyond. Production is slow because the legal counsel is a holdover from the Obama administration—the folks that are responsible for slow-rolling this are still here.”
As TGP previously reported, conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch released new Huma Abedin emails last Friday showing additional instances of Clinton Foundation donors receiving special treatment from Hillary Clinton’s State Department.
The heavily redacted documents from Abedin’s non-government account include an email from Hillary Clinton’s brother, Tony Rodham, to Abedin revealing that he acted as a go between for a Clinton Foundation donor, Richard Park. And they reveal Clinton Foundation executive Doug Band instructing Abedin to “show love” to Clinton donor Andrew Liveris.
The documents included six Clinton email exchanges not previously turned over to the State Department, bringing the known total to date to at least 439 emails that were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over to the State Department, and further contradicting a statement by Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails had been turned over to the State Department.
One example of a Clinton Foundation donor receiving special treatment was in an email dated November 14, 2009. This particular donor has appeared in numerous prior emails asking for favors:
On November 14, 2009, Clinton donor Ben Ringel, who has appeared in numerous prior emails asking for favors, emailed Abedin to get help in getting an Iranian woman a visa to come to the United States. He writes: “We need to get her clearance even only temporary to be with her granddaughter.” Abedin forwarded the request to Lauren Jiloty, asking her “Can U help Monday with consular affairs?” Jiloty replies, “Sure. Will look into it.” Ringel donated between $10,000 and $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation. In May, Band, working through Abedin, attempts to help Canadian concert promoter and Foundation donor Michael Cohl with the processing of a visa. Abedin passes the request to Monica Hanley, Clinton’s “confidential assistant.”
The new document dump is surely a treasure trove proving more pay-to-play from Hillary’s State Department. The new documents will most likely show more instances of Huma Abedin and her pervert husband, Anthony Weiner having access to highly classified information as well.
As President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton previously said:
“I’m not sure how much more evidence of pay for play, classified information mishandling, and influence peddling from Clinton’s email server one would need to show a serious criminal investigation is required.”
