A new report from Judicial Watch suggests that emails show that the FBI was lax while investigating improper email handling by Hillary Clinton and her team.
According to The Daily Caller:
FBI emails released by a conservative watchdog group Monday suggest the bureau was lax in its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server.
Judicial Watch obtained the 218 pages of emails between former FBI Deputy Assistant Director Peter Strzok and agency lawyer Lisa Page. The activist group says the documents demonstrate how the FBI showed “special treatment” towards the former secretary of state and her lawyer.
“These incredible documents show the leadership of the FBI rushed to give Hillary Clinton her FBI interview report shortly before the election,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton wrote in a news release. “And the documents also show the FBI failed to timely document interviews in the Clinton email ‘matter’ – further confirming the whole investigation was a joke.”
The emails focus on what the bureau calls “302s” – reports that document what was said during an interview between an agent and a witness. Page reportedly notes in one email that no such 302 was completed in four instances during the Clinton investigation. The lawyer, who was involved in an affair with Strzok at the time, did not go into details as to why there was such an oversight.
Strzok was the lead agent in the Clinton investigation as well as part of Mueller’s team in the Russia investigation.
