As Americans demonstrated in November of 2016, Hillary Clinton’s lengthy political career has proven to be a bit of a problem for the general populace.
Clinton’s reputation precedes her almost every where that she goes. A conniving, ostensibly intelligent power broker, Clinton’s time as Secretary of State was marred by a number of scandals, not the least of which included the reality of a private email server handling confidential government information without so much as a shred of intelligence oversight. Combined with the perception that James Comey’s FBI was covering for her in the lead up to the 2016 presidential election, this made for a ripe and pungent stew reeking of DC Swamp critters.
Now, yet another notch in the State Department’s bedpost of corruption is being chiseled out by a federal judge in a scathing statement.
In a combative exchange at a hearing Friday in Washington, D.C., a federal judge unabashedly accused career State Department officials of lying and signing “clearly false” affidavits to derail a series of lawsuits seeking information about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s private email server and her handling of the 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth said he was “shocked” and “dumbfounded” when he learned that FBI had granted immunity to former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills during its investigation into the use of Clinton’s server, according to a court transcript of his remarks.
The Department of Justice’s Inspector General (IG), Michael Horowitz, noted in a bombshell report in June that it was “inconsistent with typical investigative strategy” for the FBI to allow Mills to sit in during the agency’s interview of Clinton during the email probe, given that classified information traveled through Mills’ personal email account. “[T]here are serious potential ramifications when one witness attends another witness’ interview,” the IG wrote.
Clinton has yet to be indicted on any charges stemming from her use of a private email server – a fact that has not sat well with a great many Americans.
