Department of Justice ‘side agreements’ allowed Clinton aides to destroy their laptops

October 3, 2016

 According to this story, in addition to limiting what the investigators could look at in Hillary Clinton’s aide’s computers, the Department of Injustice allowed federal agents to destroy the laptops of Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson.

  Here is more:

House Republicans are demanding to know why Justice Department officials entered into a pair of “side agreement” with Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson — two of Hillary Clinton’s top former aides who went on to become her personal attorneys during the FBI’s email investigation — that allowed law enforcement agents to destroy their laptops after searching their hard drives for evidence.

In a letter from House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte to Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Monday, Goodlatte questioned why the destruction of the laptops used to sort Clinton’s emails was included in immunity deals that already protected Mills and Samuelson from prosecution based on the records recovered from their computers.

In his letter, Goodlatte noted that the immunity agreements revealed the FBI agents limited their search to documents authored before Jan. 2015.

  It seems odd to me that Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson would feel the need to destroy their laptops if they were already granted immunity but perhaps a clue can be gleaned from the dates the investigators were restricted to viewing. As you read above, they were not allowed to view emails after January of 2015. That would be of course when Hillary Clinton and her aides were in full cover up mode. Is it possible they were discussing the cover up and the destruction of evidence during these restricted dates?

The Republican chairman argued such parameters prevented investigators from examining potential proof of the destruction of evidence that may have occurred after that date, and that the deals offered to Mills and Samuelson already protected the aides from prosecution related to their alleged roles in the deletion of federal records.

  Cheryl Mills and Heather Samuelson were already granted immunity so it is highly unlikely they were worried about protecting themselves from prosecution, which means more than likely the Department of Justice was actively involved in protecting Hillary Clinton. The more we learn the less we know but it all seems to point back to that infamous Arizona airport tarmac meeting between Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch…

    As was mentioned today, the computers were government property. As such the FBI had every right to them without any agreement. As mentioned, there are still FOIA requests as well as the hearings are on going.

        Yet barely a ripple in reporting this which should be devasting. I get so annoyed that there has not been on Trump ad. There is so much rich stuff to make ads out of. Yet Zip and I am in the key battleground state.

        It isn’t surprising that it isn’t being reported but why isn’t Trump running any ads?! It is frustrating!

      Unless you believe Hillary when she said “there’s allot of smoke but no fire” I would have to say there is a massive cover up. 😉
