The Clinton’s favorite attorney, David Kendall is now representing Hillary Clinton in the FBI’s probe into her private email server. Kendall has been there for the Clintons for many years and scandals, including Whitewater and the Monica Lewinsky affair.
According to the Washington Post Kendall is blamed for pursuing the legalistic argument — that receiving oral sex did not constitute a sexual relationship — that has proved widely unpalatable.
Kendall is now again up to his old tricks but this time with Hillary. Per the New York Times he recently sent a letter to lawmakers, noting that although some email messages he had possession of had recently been deemed classified, none were so designated at the time they were sent.
The Daily Beast reported that the State Department put up virtually no resistance when Kendall requested to keep copies of Hillary’s emails—even though those emails contained classified information, and even though it was unclear whether the attorney was cleared to see such secrets.
The Daily Beast stated that back in May 2015, a senior State Department official informed Clinton’s lawyer, David Kendall, that government reviewers had found at least one classified email among the messages she sent using a private account, which she used exclusively while in office. “That email was only part of the “first tranche” of the review, a State Department employee noted at the time, leaving open the possibility that more classified information would be found, which it was.”
