FBI Docs Show Hillary Clinton’s Lawyer Telling DOJ They Don’t Have Consent to Double Check Data on Lenovo Hard Drives Before Destruction
The FBI on Friday released documents related to its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server.
Buried in the documents is an email from Hillary Clinton’s lawyer David Kendall bossing around the Justice Department.
Crooked Hillary’s lawyer emailed the Justice Department in April of 2016, shortly before Hillary became the Democrat nominee for president, and told the DOJ they do not have consent to double check data from two Lenovo hard drives before destruction.
“This letter confirms that, pursuant to our discussions, Williams & Connolly LLP has provided to the Department of Justice two W&C hard drives (Samsung Lenovo 256 GB hard drive and a Samsung Lenovo 128 GB hard drive) (the drives) for the sole purpose of destruction,” David Kendall wrote.
“The drives each contained a copy of data that W&C had previously provided to the Department of Justice, as well as other W&C attorney-client privileged and attorney work product materials. Pursuant to our agreement, W&C has deleted all data from the drives prior to providing them to the Department. We understand that once the drives have been destroyed, you will provide us confirmation of that fact.”
“For avoidance of doubt, this letter does not provide any consent to search the drives prior to their destruction,” Hillary’s lawyer concluded.
So there you have it. Hillary Clinton lawyers are allowed to tell the Department of Justice what they can and cannot search and can claim attorney-client privilege.
Yet, Donald Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen was raided by the FBI and attorney-client privilege be damned.
And the State Department actually banned Lenovo due to Chinese hacking.
Hillary's attorney gave DOJ 2 Lenovo hard drives to destroy, saying they already gave DOJ the files. State Dept banned that brand due to Chinese hackings.
