Judicial Watch Investigator: FBI Not Just Corrupt But Also “Cowardly and Dishonest” (Video)
Guest post by Joe Hoft
Chris Farrell from Judicial Watch called the FBI corrupt and cowardly on the Lou Dobbs show on Friday when discussing the recent corrupt dealings that the Judicial Watch has had with the deep state DOJ and the FBI.
Farrell stated that the FBI is “Cowardly and Dishonest, Absolutely” when referring to the meeting last year between President Clinton and the Obama Administration’s Attorney General, Loretta Lynch. Last week the President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, received emails from the FBI that he requested in a FOIA request related to the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting that occurred in 2016. The documents he received once and for all proved that the FBI is compromised and is being led by dirty cops!
Judicial Watch released 29 pages of Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting docs which were previously withheld by the Justice Department. Per their press release Judicial Watch released 29 pages of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) documents related to the June 27, 2016, tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton. The documents show that FBI officials were more concerned about the fact that the event had been leaked to the press that than the actual meeting itself.
The new FBI documents show FBI officials were concerned about a leak that Bill Clinton delayed his aircraft taking off in order to “maneuver” a meeting with the attorney general. The resulting story in the Observer is seemingly confirmed and causes a flurry of emails about the source of the article. FBI official(s) write “we need to find that guy” and that the Phoenix FBI office was contacted “in an attempt to stem any further damage.” Another FBI official, working on AG Lynch’s security detail, suggests instituting non-disclosure agreements. The names of the emails authors are redacted. There are no documents showing concern about the meeting itself.
The FBI originally informed Judicial Watch they could not locate any records related to the tarmac meeting. However, in a related FOIA lawsuit, the Justice Department located emails in which Justice Department officials communicated with the FBI and wrote that they had communicated with the FBI. As a result, by letter dated August 10, 2017, from the FBI stated, “Upon further review, we subsequently determined potentially responsive documents may exist. As a result, your [FOIA] request has been reopened…”
On June 27, 2016, Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with former President Bill Clinton on board a parked plane at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix, Arizona. The meeting occurred during the then-ongoing investigation of Mrs. Clinton’s email server, and only a few days before she was interviewed the Justice Department and FBI. (Judicial Watch filed a request on June 30 that the U.S. Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General investigate that meeting.)
The tarmac meeting also came just days before former FBI Director James Comey held the July 5, 2016, press conference in which he announced that no charges would be filed against Mrs. Clinton. In his subsequent, May 3, 2017, testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, Comey said the Lynch-Clinton tarmac meeting was the “capper” among “a number of things” that had caused him to determine that Department of Justice leadership “could not credibly complete the investigation and decline prosecution without grievous damage to the American people’s confidence in the justice system.”
An FBI official wrote – “We need to find that guy!” But we don’t know who wrote it. Last week General Flynn admitting to lying to the FBI – What a crock – the FBI never held the Clintons accountable for their many crimes. And we now know that the FBI has been lying to us for years!
