Kirsters Baish| The Conservative watchdog group, Judicial Watch, got ahold of 16 newly released FBI documents today. These documents all related to the infamous Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch tarmac meeting. The Gateway Pundit writes, “In the latest batch of newly uncovered docs is an email from Trump-hating FBI agent Peter Strzok suggesting the decision to exonerate Hillary Clinton from her criminal email investigation was made in April of 2016.”
The Pundit previously reported that the Deep State denied the existence of the documents multiple times, but have now told Jay Sekulow and Tom Fitton that they somehow unearthed more documents regarding the 2016 Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting. They were to be forced to hand over all of the documents to the ACLJ as well as to Judicial Watch by the end of the month of May.
These documents were said to have been found after not one, not two, but three “searches.” They are comprised of 16 pages as well as 2 text messages between Peter Strzok and Lisa Page. The 16 pages of documents regarding the Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting were supposed to be released by the FBI to all government watchdog groups last Thursday.
They have now been released.
From Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch:
Judicial Watch today released 16 pages of Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) documents related to the June 2016 tarmac meeting between former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton showing involvement of the FBI’s former Chief of Counterespionage Peter Strzok.
In a previously unseen email, on July 1, 2016, Strzok forwarded to Bill Priestap, assistant director of FBI counterintelligence, and other FBI officials an article in The New York Times titled then “ Lynch to Remove Herself From Decision Over Clinton Emails, Official Says.” Priestap comments on it, saying: “The meeting in PX is all over CNN TV news this morning …” Strzok replies: “Timing’s not ideal in that it falsely adds to those seeking the ‘this is all choreographed’ narrative. But I don’t think it’s worth changing … later won’t be better.” Priestap responds “Agreed.”
Another Strzok email suggest the decision on the Clinton email matter has been under discussion since April 2016—three months before then-FBI Director James Comey announced he would recommend no prosecution.
After the tarmac meeting between former President Bill Clinton and Obama era Attorney General Loretta Lynch, a July 1, 2016 email was sent from an FBI official. The email stated, “Our job is to protect the boss [Comey] from harm and embarrassment.”
The email from Strzok confirms what documents that had already been released had proved, that James Comey had exonerated Hillary Clinton prior to the investigation into her conduct and private email server even beginning.
“According to the unredacted portions of the transcripts [released by Senate Judiciary in October], it appears that in April or early May of 2016, Mr. Comey had already decided he would issue a statement exonerating Secretary Clinton. That was long before FBI agents finished their work.”
Judicial Watch’s president, Tom Fitton, made a statement about the newly released documents. He stated:
“These emails are astonishing, no wonder the FBI hid them from Judicial Watch and the court. They show anti-Trump, pro-Clinton FBI Agent Peter Strzok admitting the decision not to prosecute the Clinton email issue was made back in April 2016 – long before even Hillary Clinton was interviewed. And the new emails show that the FBI security had the political objective of protecting then-Director Comey from ‘embarrassment’—which is, frankly, disturbing.”
