In yet another bombshell revelation demonstrating how there is one standard for the Clintons and yet another for the rest of us “little people,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) revealed email evidence that the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email probe was anything but standard.Emails from FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe state the probe was coded “HQ Special.” That term in and of itself is terminology used to indicate the probe in no way followed standard investigative procedures, likely ‘softening,’ the Bureau’s findings.These bombshell revelations concerning just how deeply rooted the corruption is within the Department of Justice and the FBI is truly astounding and it is becoming more and more clear every day that there is one set of rules for some in Washington and yet another set of rules for the rest of us.
Gaetz stated on Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” Friday –
“We have email evidence from Andrew McCabe indicating that Hillary Clinton was going to get an ‘HQ Special,’ a headquarters special. The Judiciary Committee is engaged in an investigation, particularly as it relates to the handling of the Hillary Clinton email scandal and any potential investigations of the Clinton Foundation and the handling of bribes or other types of improper payments.”
McCabe met with both the House Oversight and Judiciary Committees in closed-door hearings on Thursday.
Email discussions included requests from the White House communications direction to her counterpart at the State Department to see if it was possible to arrange for Hillary’s successor as Secretary of State John Kerry, to avoid any questions during media engagements and press conferences about Hillary’s email arrangements. Top State Department officials even went so far as to assure Hillary’s attorneys that they had not advised Congress of any wrongdoing on Hillary’s part regarding the use of a private email account.These previously unreported emails were obtained as part of a Freedom of Information Act (or FOIA) lawsuit from Judicial Watch seeking records from Hillary’s tenure as Secretary of State. The Republican National Committee only released a portion of the emails to the Wall Street Journal. What was in the remaining documents is unclear. The RNC has refused to release any additional emails stating that it will release only relevant communications between the White House and the State Department.
Then there is McCabe himself. His wife, a Democrat (naturally), ran for Virginia’s Senate and received some funds from groups tied to Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe. Many have pointed to this as significant bias when those charged to investigate corruption are receiving funds directly from the person most likely to be affected by the outcome of the investigation. In the real world, we call that bribery.
Deceased Justice Antonin Scalia rightly noted there is a great risk that the people most eager to join a special prosecutor’s staff are those who are burning to take down the person under investigation, and these texts certainly raise that concern to a significant degree with combined with revelations of political donations and former associations. It is unclear just who decides what is or what is not relevant with respect to these communications or just what else is being hidden by Hillary’s minions. It seems every day we find out more just how much corruption is in Washington and how deep it goes.
