Once again Judicial Watch is doing the heavy lifting.
Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch announced Tuesday that Bill Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division admitted, in writing and under oath, that the FBI found Hillary Clinton’s emails in the Obama White House — specifically the Executive Office of the President!
The FBI also admitted that almost 49,000 Hillary Clinton emails were reviewed as a result of a search warrant for emails found on Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
Thanks to Judicial Watch, in January a federal court ordered discovery on Hillary Clinton’s emails and Benghazi scandal.
Judge Royce Lamberth ordered top Obama and Hillary officials such as Susan Rice, Ben Rhodes and other State and FBI officials to answer Judicial Watch’s questions under oath.
Judge Lamberth said Hillary Clinton’s private email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”
Via Judicial Watch:
Priestap was asked by Judicial Watch to identify representatives of Hillary Clinton, her former staff, and government agencies from which “email repositories were obtained.” Priestap responded with the following non-exhaustive list:
- Bryan Pagliano
- Cheryl Mills
- Executive Office of the President [Emphasis added]
- Heather Samuelson
- Jacob Sullivan
- Justin Cooper
- United States Department of State
- United States Secret Service
- Williams & Connolly LLP
Priestap also testifies that 48,982 emails were reviewed as a result of a warrant for Clinton email account information from the laptop of Anthony Weiner, who had been married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

Recall, Priestap helped oversee the Hillary Clinton email investigation (and made sure she was exonerated) then migrated over to the 2016 counterintel investigation into the Trump campaign.
“This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama’s White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people.” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “No wonder Hillary Clinton has thus far skated – Barack Obama is implicated in her email scheme.”
