Emailgate Just Got Even Better, FBI Destroyed Laptops Of Clinton Aids In Immunity Deal

Nothing like destroying evidence, right? You wonder why people think you are Weasels?


FBI agreed to destroy laptops of Clinton aides with immunity deal, sources say

Immunity deals for two top Hillary Clinton aides included a side arrangement obliging the FBI to destroy their laptops after reviewing the devices, House Judiciary Committee sources told Fox News on Monday.
Sources said the arrangement with former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills and ex-campaign staffer Heather Samuelson also limited the search to no later than Jan. 31, 2015. This meant investigators could not review documents for the period after the email server became public -- in turn preventing the bureau from discovering if there was any evidence of obstruction of justice, sources said.

The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee fired off a letter Monday to Attorney General Loretta Lynch asking why the DOJ and FBI agreed to the restrictive terms, including that the FBI would destroy the laptops after finishing the search.

“Like many things about this case, these new materials raise more questions than answers,” Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., wrote in the letter obtained by Fox News.

“Doesn’t the willingness of Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson to have their laptops destroyed by the FBI contradict their claim that the laptops could have been withheld because they contained non-relevant, privileged information? If so, doesn’t that undermine the claim that the side agreements were necessary?” Goodlatte asks.

The immunity deals for Mills and Samuelson, made as part of the FBI’s probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server when she served as secretary of state, apparently included a series of “side agreements” that were negotiated by Samuelson and Mills’ attorney Beth Wilkinson.

The side deals were agreed to on June 10, less than a month before FBI Director James Comey announced that the agency would recommend no charges be brought against Clinton or her staff.

Judiciary Committee aides told that the destruction of the laptops is particularly troubling as it means that the computers could not be used as evidence in future legal proceedings, should new information or circumstances arise.

Committee aides also asked why the FBI and DOJ would enter into a voluntary negotiation to begin with, when the laptops could be obtained condition-free via a subpoena.

The letter also asked why the DOJ agreed to limit their search of the laptops to files before Jan. 31, 2015, which would “give up any opportunity to find evidence related to the destruction of evidence or obstruction of justice related to Secretary Clinton’s unauthorized use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State.”

Aides expressed shock at the parameter, saying it is especially troubling as Mills and Samuelson already had immunity from the consequences of whatever might be on the laptop.

“You’re essentially extending immunity to everyone,” one aide said.

If this doesn't infuriate you then you aren't paying attention.


  1. another good reason to let it all go to hell....


  2. The Clinton 'scandals' usually amount to: "There's a tiny little area where we don't have complete knowledge... one dark corner in a gargantuan mansion of well-lit rooms and alcoves... so all the evil in the world MUST be in that tiny little area! I just know it!" It's always the email that was deleted. Always the piece of paper you didn't get a good look at. Always the person that just died was going to spill the beans on millions of crimes.

    Trump scandals are: "Yes, here's a crime he did. Here's the proof. Here's another crime. Here's the proof. He insulted vets and women... here's video. Here's him inciting violence, and violence being done." And on, and on, and on, endlessly, marked only by his followers cheering him on... cheering on their own exploitation and destruction. Grateful to be robbed by the con man.

    1. Whatever Trump has done pales in comparison to the damage that has been done to this country by not only Hillary Clinton and her staff but the entire Justice department, the FBI and the Obama administration combined just recently trying to cover her ass.
      You can point to anything Trump has done that you like and nothing even remotely approaches the flagrant lawlessness we have had our noses rubbed in recently.

    2. I have not seen any of this "lawlessness" or "damage." I've seen the economy bounce back from the disaster Republican policies left it in in '08. I've seen masterful and positive change in our foreign policy, and some serious good in our domestic social policies.

    3. Step away from the bong dude.

  3. Hey Nangles, how much does George Soros pay you to post here?

    Give him his money back. No one believes you. You're not fooling anyone.

    1. $32,000 per character. I'm worth it. That's what it costs when it's logic and truth and not just conservative propaganda.

    2. Hey, cowboy up and change that $ sign to the proper currency symbol.
      I.e. Rubles (for that uranium deal Hitlery struck with Putin) and Rials (for that 'kill da fracking' deal she struck with House of Saud).

    3. The State Department was just one member of a nine-agency panel that reviewed the uranium company transaction. The panel was led by the Treasury Department, not State, and Hillary Clinton was never personally involved in the deal.

      Never heard of the fracking thing. Deal with the Saudis? Or just a deal with American citizens that don't like their drinking water poisoned?

      Oh... cha-ching!

  4. MAYBE should bill Phil for my words?



  5. i'm practicing my noose making skills. hopefully it will come in handy soon. hey, new rope?

  6. The fact that the source is Fox news totally negates the fact that the it is unbiased or true. Quit crying about "evil" Hillary. I swear you righties are straight pussies when it comes to complaining about her. Its politics, do you think this sort of thing hasnt been happening since, forever? Every president has most likely done something illegal, immoral or underhanded. Its a dirty business. Bitches...


Opinions are like assholes, everyone has one, some peoples stink more than others too. Remember, I can make your opinion disappear, you keep the stink.
