FBI claims lack of public interest as reason for not releasing files on Hillary Clinton

The fix is in.

Stephen Dinan reports for The Washington Times, Aug. 29, 2017, that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) rejected a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request to release the Bureau’s files on Hillary Clinton.

Incredibly, the FBI cited the American public’s lack of interest in Hillary Clinton as the reason for turning down the FOIA request.

Attorney Ty Clevenger has been trying to get Hillary and her personal lawyers disbarred for their handling of her official emails during her time as secretary of state. Clevenger has been met with resistance among lawyers, and now his request for information from the FBI’s files has been shot down.

FBI records management section chief David M. Hardy told Clevenger in a letter on August 28, 2017:

“You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject. It is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA.”

The FBI says it will only release records from its files if a subject consents, is dead, or is of such public interest that it overrides privacy concerns.

Clevenger said he thought it would have been clear why Hillary Clinton’s case is of public interest, but he sent documentation anyway, pointing to a request by members of Congress for an investigation into whether Hillary had perjured herself in testimony to Capitol Hill.

See “House Judiciary Committee asks for second special prosecutor to investigate Clinton-Comey-Lynch” and “House Republicans are going after Hillary Clinton!

Clevenger told The Washington Times:

“I’m just stunned. This is exactly what I would have expected had Mrs. Clinton won the election, but she didn’t. It looks like the Obama Administration is still running the FBI. How can a story receive national news coverage and not be a matter of public interest? If this is the new standard, then there’s no such thing as a public interest exception.”

So the FBI claims the American public are disinterested in Hillary Clinton?

Someone should show the FBI the results of a National EnquirerAmerica’s 25 most hated celebrities” poll, in which Hillary Clinton ranks as the second most hated (and Barack Obama the 5th most hated).

Let the FBI know you want to see the FBI’s files on Hillary Clinton:

UPDATE (Sept. 5, 2017)

On August 31, 2017, U.S. District Judge James E. Boasberg ordered the FBI to disclose more details about how it handled its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s secret email account.

In doing so, Judge Boasberg overruled objections by the Trump administration that making the information public would violate grand jury secrecy rules. Boasberg said: “After reviewing the document in camera, the court concludes that it largely rehashes information already made public, thus obviating any need for secrecy.”(The Washington Times)

  1. The fix has always been in, Wray isn’t any good, neither is Rosenstein, McCabe, or any of the others. What can we expect when all of them are Democrats or globalist insider Republicans who have the same agenda.

      • It’s stuff like this that should cause people to pause and reflect on the reality that they live in. They are “outraged” because they still believe that there is justice. They think that “justice” makes no distinction between them and Hillary and her ilk.

        These creatures don’t work for us. They work for those who control everything. They own the judges, courts, prosecutors, cops, all of it. It’s very telling when Hillary opens her mouth. She really can’t understand why she isn’t in “her” office. What she’s annoyed about is that people had the audacity to NOT acknowledge her entitlement.

        It never occurs to people like her that ordinary citizens have or should have a say in any of it.

  2. In light of this development it is clear that the FBI is culpable and is therefore dirty. They no longer have standing and are illegitimate. Period. Any agent who stands by this outrage adds themselves to this illegitimacy. And don’t think you can regain it easily. Consent of the governed can be rescinded.

  3. I guess somehow the FBI missed the thousands upon thousands of people across the USA chanting “Lock her up!” at Trump rallies for over a year.

    The FBI is as corrupt as the CIA and the Clintons themselves, and it has been for a very long time. I can’t say any of this actually surprises me.

    POSTSCRIPT:
    Dear Dr. Eowyn, I was recently skimming a post somewhere pertaining to a so-called documentary on the KKK and White Supremacists that was produced by A&E. A couple of men who appeared on film were later claiming that most of the production had actually been scripted by A&E and they were being misrepresented by the documentary. I’ve been attempting to find that article again without success. I seemed to remember it being here at FOTM, but then my memory ain’t what it used to be (and it never was). Does any of that ring a bell for you?

    Sie haben nicht ausreichend bewiesen, dass das öffentliche Interesse an der Offenlegung persönlicher Datenschutzinteressen des Subjekts überwiegt. Es obliegt dem Anforderer bereitstellen Dokumentation über das öffentliche Interesse an den Betrieb und die Aktivitäten der Regierung, bevor Aufzeichnungen gemäß der FOIA verarbeitet werden können.”

    For your information. It looks like we still have Obama holdovers in the FBI and are resisting the American peoples’ demands. AG Sessions need to get on the ball.

  7. This is so ridiculous & disgusting! Thanks for the news as I probably would not have known about it.

    God bless attorney Ty Clevenger for trying to pursue justice!

    Evidently, the current FBI Director, “Christopher A. Wray, who assumed the role on August 2, 2017, after being confirmed by the U.S. Senate…” (Wiki) is a dirty dog just like the rest of them.

    I guess a Petition is needed on this topic as well. I wonder HOW MANY signatures would suffice for the FBI’s FOIA Dept. to consider Hillary’s crimes as sufficient “public interest”? :-/

  12. There was a time in our history that the FBI went after criminals, but when FBI directors are appointed and approved by both political parties, American justice for the American People, it seems to be very low on their list of priorities! ………… Or Cover-up’s?
    * 1908 – FBI founded
    When the Department of Justice was created in 1870 to enforce federal law and coordinate judicial policy, it had no permanent investigators on its staff. At first, it hired private detectives when it needed federal crimes investigated and later rented out investigators from other federal agencies, such as the Secret Service, which was created by the Department of the Treasury in 1865 to investigate counterfeiting. In the early part of the 20th century, the attorney general was authorized to hire a few permanent investigators, and the Office of the Chief Examiner, which consisted mostly of accountants, was created to review financial transactions of the federal courts.

    Seeking to form an independent and more efficient investigative arm, in 1908 the Department of Justice hired 10 former Secret Service employees to join an expanded Office of the Chief Examiner. The date when these agents reported to duty–July 26, 1908–is celebrated as the genesis of the FBI. By March 1909, the force included 34 agents, and Attorney General George Wickersham, Bonaparte’s successor, renamed it the Bureau of Investigation.

    The federal government used the bureau as a tool to investigate criminals who evaded prosecution by passing over state lines, and within a few years the number of agents had grown to more than 300. The agency was opposed by some in Congress, who feared that its growing authority could lead to abuse of power.

  13. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. She is “above” prosecution. They’ll never do it. It doesn’t matter who they put in there.

    I liked Trey Gowdy, but he’s like Henry Waxman. All bark and no bite.

    Believe me, I would like nothing more than to see her frog-marching in an orange jumpsuit. She is too close to the big bosses. Remember, they don’t work for us.

  14. In other sicko Fed news (these people must all hang out at Bohemian Grove together or something):

    8/28/17: “Court Claims Nothing Wrong with Rigging Primaries, Dismisses Lawsuit Against DNC — A [class action] lawsuit against the DNC and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz for the corruption exposed by WikiLeaks during the 2016 Election has been dismissed” [on 8/25/17 by Federal Judge William Zloch]:

    With a nothing-ruling like that, I suppose it will be a “free for all” rig-fest on both sides, DNC & GOP, from here on in.
