Newly leaked emails show the Justice Department was in contact with the Clinton campaign during the invetigation
Wikileaks is at it again, today another 1,000 of Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails were released. Most of them seem to center around the collusion between the mainstream media and the Clinton campaign. We all knew the mainstream media was in the tank for the former Secretary of State but what we learned today shows us the breadth of the collusion.
Speaking of collusion, we also learned through these emails that despite Hillary Clinton’s claim to the contrary the Department of Injustice was in contact with the Clinton campaign during the investigation into her email scandal. Here is more:
An official within Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s campaign appeared to have discussions with sources inside the Department of Justice (DOJ) about ongoing open records lawsuits regarding the former secretary of State’s emails, according to an email released on Tuesday.
In an email from May 2015, Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said that “DOJ folks” had “inform[ed]” him about an upcoming status conference in one of the lawsuits regarding Clinton’s private email setup.
The information about an upcoming court event would have been public knowledge and open for all to attend. And it’s unclear whether the people Fallon spoke to at the Justice Department were officials who regularly communicate with the public.
The fact that the Department of Injustice and the Clinton campaign were in contact over a public meeting might not seem to be a big deal, and I am sure Hillary Clinton’s defenders will claim this is much to do about nothing, however there should have been no contact whatsoever and it does raise concerns:
However, the fact that Fallon — a former spokesman with the Justice Department — remained in contact with anyone from the department is likely to renew allegations that the Obama administration maintained an especially cozy relationship with Clinton’s presidential campaign.
It seems highly unlikely this would be the only time the two camps were in contact during the investigation but the Clinton’s are smart–they would not have left a paper or an e-paper trail of the most egregious violations, this would most likely have occurred verbally. Like say, oh I don’t know, on the tarmac in an Arizona airport…
