Peter Kadzik, DOJ official who will be in charge of the renewed probe into Hillary Clinton’s emails, by way of Anthony Weiner’s motherboard, has certain historic friendships and allegiances which might render him less than unsympathetic to the woman he is in charge of investigating.
But Kadzik worked on other Clinton email issues in his dealings with Congress. Last November, he denied a request from Republican lawmakers to appoint a special counsel to lead the investigation.
In a Feb. 1, 2016 letter in response to Kadzik, Florida Rep. Ron DeSantis noted that Kadzik had explained “that special counsel may be appointed at the discretion of the Attorney General when an investigation or prosecution by the Department of Justice would create a potential conflict of interest.” …
Kadzik’s first involvement in the Clinton email brouhaha came in a Sept. 24, 2015 response letter to Senate Judiciary Committee chairman Chuck Grassley in which he declined to confirm or deny whether the DOJ was investigating Clinton. Last month, Politico reported that Kadzik angered Republican lawmakers when, in a classified briefing, he declined to say whether Clinton aides who received DOJ immunity were required to cooperate with congressional probes.
Kadzik also testified at a House Oversight Committee hearing last month on the issue of classifications and redactions in the FBI’s files of the Clinton email investigation.
Finally, it is also worth noting that Kadzik’s wife, Amy Weiss, currently at Weiss Public Affairs worked on the 1992 Clinton/Gore Campaign as a Press Secretary, and Communications Director for the Democratic National Committee, and a White House Deputy Assistant to the President/Deputy Press Secretary to President Bill Clinton.
The Justice Department has obtained a warrant that will allow it to begin searching the computer that is believed to contain thousands of newly-discovered emails of top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, two law enforcement sources confirmed to CNN.
Very illustrative of the incestuous political quagmire is the extent to which the Bill and Hillary Clinton duo extend to their circle of suitors and benefactors such that when reading the multitude of reports surrounding the FBI’s re-investigation of Hillary’s email “situation,” one comes upon the same names and intersecting but disparate motivations over and over and, upon reading several stories, a theme, a thread of dubious continuity crystallizes in your mind and make you wonder.
Hmm. Your inner detective alights on a succession of evidence you can’t quite feel at peace with.
An interesting investigative report appeared in the Wall Street Journal detailing the internal schisms and antagonisms that are impaling the FBI’s hierarchical investigative structure over Director James Comey’s decision to publicly notify Congress of the bureau’s renewed intention to investigate additional emails pertaining to Hillary Clinton and Huma Abedin and most other points unseen on this circle of hell known as Clintondise.
Federal agents are preparing to scour roughly 650,000 emails contained on the laptop of former Rep. Anthony Weiner to see how many relate to a prior probe of Hillary Clinton’s email use, as metadata on the device suggests there may be thousands sent to or from the private server that the Democratic nominee used while she was secretary of state, according to people familiar with the matter.
The review will take weeks at a minimum to determine whether those messages are work-related emails between Huma Abedin, a close Clinton aide and the estranged wife of Mr. Weiner, and State Department officials; how many are duplicates of emails already reviewed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; and whether they include either classified information or important new evidence in the Clinton email probe, which FBI officials call “Midyear.”
The FBI has had to await a court order to begin reviewing the emails, because they were uncovered in an unrelated probe of Mr. Weiner, and that order was delayed for reasons that remain unclear.
And indeed. We are left wondering why.
Pouring through 650,000 emails is an immense task but one of such monumental potential that we can’t simply discount the possibility there may be further nuggets of Clintonian duplicity to be unearthed in this sod.
The story continues.
The latest development began in early October when New York-based FBI officials notified Andrew McCabe, the bureau’s second-in-command, that while investigating Mr. Weiner for possibly sending sexually charged messages to a minor, they had recovered a laptop with 650,000 emails. Many, they said, were from the accounts of Ms. Abedin, according to people familiar with the matter.
At a meeting early last week of senior Justice Department and FBI officials, a member of the department’s senior national-security staff asked for an update on the Weiner laptop, the people familiar with the matter said. At that point, officials realized that no one had acted to obtain a warrant, these people said. Mr. McCabe then instructed the email investigators to talk to the Weiner investigators and see whether the laptop’s contents could be relevant to the Clinton email probe, these people said. After the investigators spoke, the agents agreed it was potentially relevant.
The remainder of this article centers around the investigation’s role of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, the bureau’s second-in-command.
Seems that Mr. McCabe is married to Dr. Jill McCabe, a hospital physician who ran for the Virginia State Senate in 2015, and whose campaign was “financially aided” to the tune of about $675,000 by Virginia Governor, Terry McAuliffe, a shyster rife with Clinton connections.
Now consider, if you will, a senior FBI official, entrusted with top level decisions involving the investigation into Hillary’s negligent email practices that might very well have left the United States vulnerable to nefarious foreign intrusion through her recklessness; an FBI official whose wife, while running for state political office, received over $600,000 worth of help from an inner functionary of the Clinton Nefarious Network.
Furthermore, let’s consider that the 650,000 emails were brought to McCabe’s attention in early October. There sat this astounding trove, apparently under the spell of “unurgency,” until last week during a meeting between the DOJ and FBI when it “suddenly” occurred to participants that no one thought to procure a warrant that would allow them to examine the hundreds of thousands of emails. These are professional law enforcement officers and not one single person thought to request a warrant until the same week a news story broke pointing out the deputy director’s too-close-for-comfort tendrils with the Clinton Cabal?
I am troubled by the meta-story that no one quite can wrap their head around involving the latest turn of events in this email saga.
On the surface, we learn over 600,000 emails have spontaneously appeared on our radar virtue of a parallel criminal investigation; this is astounding in itself, but one gets the sense that there are so many conflicting narratives and agendas and such outright ass-covering going on that ultimately, the truth, if it is exposed, will be owing to cowardly self-preservation, not to the honorable pursuit of justice.
The rear guard of the devout, tenacious Cult of HiIllary are clinging to an obligatory disclaimer which appears in this Los Angeles Time news account from Friday in which the newspaper writes of FBI Director James Comey’s decision to re-open the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s mishandling of classified emails.
This tenacious cult is actually quite large and pigheadedly intent to parse every twist of language and semantic nuance in order to minimize the damage to Hillary Clinton’s campaign.
My in-house yenta friend on Facebook, a hysterical SJW type who can always be counted on to glorify St. Hillary, jumped all over the LAT paragraph, as have several other defenders of the Democratic criminal parade.
Comey wrote in a letter to Congress that the newly discovered messages could be relevant to questions of whether Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was secretary of State.
The emails were not to or from Clinton, and contained information that appeared to be more of what agents had already uncovered, the official said, but in an abundance of caution, they felt they needed to further scrutinize them.
Because Comey had told Congress that the FBI had finished investigating Clinton’s server, he felt he needed to let lawmakers know that agents were looking into the case again in light of the recent discovery, the official said.
The passage in question is in red. It represents a last-ditch effort by Clintonistas across the nation to redeem her virtue and political virginity.
Many of these people intelligent. They are assuredly not stupid and I would even conjecture that some of them entertain a healthy level of critical thinking. How can they hinge any real hope or defense based on this paragraph, at least on an investigatory level?
My FB yenta friend is not an idiot, yet…
As if the fact something wasn’t addressed to or from Hillary implies it has nothing to do with her deeds, despite the fact her band of bandits are immersed completely in this ring of criminality, all the way up to Prince Barack, himself.
Or despite the fact she is a seasoned crook and scholar of plausible deniability. Her undoing will be indirect, but it will be done.
