It was another fruitful week for Judicial Watch as the organization managed to pry additional, highly revealing documents from government agencies indicating more rank corruption in the “Russiagate” and Hillary Clinton email investigations.
As noted by JW President Tom Fitton during an appearance on Fox News Friday with host Dan Bongino:
— Justice Department Russiagate “conduit” Bruce Ohr, while his wife, Nellie, was working for Fusion GPS, the political research firm paid by the 2016 Clinton campaign and DNC to produce the bogus “Steele Dossier,” received a $28,000 bonus as the department and FBI were involved in ‘investigating’ the fake “collusion” narrative involving Team Trump;
— FBI documents show that notes regarding agents’ meetings with the Intelligence Community Inspector General regarding Clinton’s criminal abuse of classified emails are now “missing,” while a CD containing notes of those meetings is very likely “damaged” beyond repair.
Bongino, a former Secret Service agent who is very familiar with such matters, offered that the missing IC IG meeting notes may have been linked to a “damage assessment” the intelligence community had engaged in regarding Clinton’s emails — to see what information had been compromised and by whom (meaning, which adversarial governments).
Fitton didn’t disagree.
“Well, the dates line up,” Fitton began. “The missing meeting notes are from a meeting that the Intelligence Community IG had with [former FBI counterintelligence official] Peter Strzok and company. It looks like about a month after the IC IG referred it to DoJ.”
Fitton explained further that it appears the Intelligence Community’s IG referred to the Justice Department Hillary Clinton “for investigation over her missing emails” over “national security implications.”
“They have a meeting about the issue a month later,” and now “the notes are nowhere to be found,” he added. “And it looks like it lines up with discussions the agencies had about whether the Chinese were able to gain access to virtually all of her emails. And the notes are gone.”
Remember, Clinton ran all of her electronic communications through her own private, unprotected home-brew server (to hide what she was doing and prevent them from being archived, as per open records laws). Even the FBI has admitted with near-100 percent certainty that several foreign governments managed to breach her account and steal classified information.
In fact, as the Washington Examiner reported Friday:
Information from Hillary Clinton’s unauthorized, private email server [was] found on the dark web, newly released documents from the FBI show.
It has long been suspected that Clinton’s server, located in her home in Chappaquiddick, N.Y., might have been breached by hackers, but that has never been publicly confirmed.
Also, as we reported in August 2018:
The FBI has already said there is a 99 percent chance that Hillary’s email server was hacked by as many as five foreign governments.
One of them, apparently, was China, as we speculated in June.
The Daily Caller reported…:
A Chinese-owned company operating in the Washington, D.C., area hacked Hillary Clinton’s private server throughout her term as secretary of state and obtained nearly all her emails, two sources briefed on the matter told The Daily Caller News Foundation.
As for the discovery that notes pertaining to the IC IG’s meeting about Clinton’s classified emails, Fitton noted that it came as a result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request by his organization, not a voluntary disclosure.
Fitton said that last week the FBI admitted that interview records, called 302s, for four witnesses in the alleged email probe were also missing — just more proof that ‘the fix was in’ and the Obama regime was going to let Clinton skate so she could continue to run against POTUS Trump, no matter what the implications to the country.
“So, you know, if you don’t care about the investigation, you know it’s wired, you’re not going to do the basics — like keep notes of [meetings] and be diligent in recording everything that happened,” Fitton added.
Hillary “jeopardized national security, she didn’t care, Obama didn’t care,” Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett, appearing with Bongino and Fitton, said. “Obama went on national television, in fact on Fox News with Chris Wallace, and said, ‘Oh, she didn’t jeopardize national security, she was just a little careless.’
“And, of course, that was the clarion call to [then-FBI Director James] Comey and the Department of Justice to stomp their foot on the scales of justice and clear Hillary Clinton, even though they knew she had certainly committed crimes.”
As for Ohr, Fitton noted, he was getting “an unusual bonus, given his recent salary history, in the middle of the Russiagate investigation, just about, at the time, he’s launched by the FBI and DoJ to be the back channel … to Christopher Steele after the FBI fired [Steele].
“So he gets this big bonus, then it comes out that he was dealing with Christopher Steele on the down-low because, evidently, [then-Attorney General Jeff] Sessions & Co. didn’t know about it, so they removed him, kicked him upstairs [at DoJ] to this international group, and gave him a raise.”
Hillary Clinton should be in prison stripes for the rest of her life, no doubt about that, but so should Barack Obama and the rest of his Clinton enablers (Comey, Ohr, McCabe, Strzok, Page, etc.).
Meanwhile, AG William Barr is proceeding…
