This could be the nail in the coffin for Hillary Clinton.
Among the nuggets of information buried in the FBI case files about Clinton’s home-based email server system was yet another revelation that sheds light on what the presidential hopeful knew, and when – and according to some political insiders, the revelations don’t look good for her White House aspirations.
The news blog Yes I’m Right puts it this way: “More emails are to be released before the election and this time it’s about tammpering with them to manipulate how they were viewed by the public and the FBI. This is huge.”
The 189 pages of the FBI’s report were heavily redacted. But enough’s creep out to cast yet another shadow on Clinton.
“The interviews released earlier this month, known as 302s, also reveal the serious allegation that senior State Department official Patrick Kennedy applied pressure to subordinates to change the classified email codes so they would be shielded from Congress and the public,” the news blog said.
That means, if true, that one of Clinton’s top aides at State took purposeful steps to hide away certain documents from public and congressional view.
The FBI detailed information about the email boxes in five pages of its report – but not much. On those five pages alone were 111 redactions. But the pages include summaries of a person who worked in the “Office of Information Programs and Services” at State, who reportedly told the FBI they were told there were 14 bankers boxes of former Secretary of State Clinton’s emails at her office in Friendship Heights, a neighborhood in Washington, D.C.
“The State Department witness further explained to the FBI that ‘on or about December 5, 2014, IPS personnel picked up only 12 bankers boxes of Clinton’s emails,” Yes I’m Right reported. “The officials were not sure if the boxes ‘were consolidated or what could have happened to the two other boxes.”
The big question: Did Clinton get rid of these two boxes?
It’s curious that one of the individuals who worked in the same office where the bankers boxes went missing was an attorney with a curious past.
As Yes I’m Right reported: “At least one of the lawyers in the office where the changes were made is Catherine ‘Kate’ Duval, who was at the IRS during the Lois Lerner email scandal and later handled the release of documents to the Benghazi congressional committee. Duval once worked for the same firm as Kendall and has since left the State Department.”
