Is this the smoking gun that showed how Hillary avoided jail?

The State Department coverup of her call and time logs is being revealed.

Judicial Watch found out that boxes of Clinton documents were given the Obama administration’s OK not to be subjected to Freedom of Information requests.

This includes her time logs, expense and reimbursement forms as well as her emails.

All this was given a pass without any checks and balances.

And worse yet, most of this was given for her time spent in the world’s biggest hotspots in the Middle East.

Sunshine is the best disinfectant” Professor Alan Dershowitz quoted Justice Brandeis.  Unfortunately, it was not used here.


Fox News reported:

The State Department struck a deal with Hillary Clinton and her top aide Huma Abedin that allowed them to remove electronic and physical records they claimed were “personal” and “unclassified, non-record materials,” according to Judicial Watch.

Some records were deemed to be personal correspondence, but other records that were removed included Clinton’s official schedules and call logs, Ed Henry reported on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Abedin was allowed to take five boxes of “physical files” out of the State Department, including records described as “Muslim Engagement Documents,” Henry reported.

He said it is not known if the State Department kept copies of the electronic and physical records that were removed.

“We already know the Obama State Department let Hillary Clinton steal and then delete her government emails, which included classified information.

But these new records show that was only part of the scandal,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “These new documents show the Obama State Department had a deal with Hillary Clinton to hide her calls logs and schedules, which would be contrary to FOIA and other laws.”

Harvard Law professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz said it’s “routine” for former State Department employees to take materials home that are deemed to be personal, and copies are typically made of those materials.

“It’s worth asking about, but I wouldn’t jump to any conclusions,” Dershowitz said.

He cautioned against leaping to accusations of criminality, pointing out that’s what many on the left are doing to President Trump in the Russia probe.

On the other hand, Dershowitz said, the government should be disclosing everything in the interest of transparency unless there is an overwhelming national security reason for keeping it temporarily sealed.

“Nothing should ever be permanently sealed,” he said. “And I think transparency trumps privacy when you’re a government official.”

The receipt of gifts by a federal official means this becomes public record.  We assume there may be a “quid-pro-quo” when it comes to political contributions.  That’s why we ask candidates to disclose them.

The same applies to gifts to public officials.  When this is deliberately hidden, people need to start asking questions.

Judicial Watch stated:

“We already know the Obama State Department let Hillary Clinton steal and then delete her government emails, which included classified information.

But these new records show that was only part of the scandal. These new documents show the Obama State Department had a deal with Hillary Clinton to hide her calls logs and schedules, which would be contrary to FOIA and other laws,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

“When are the American people going to get an honest investigation of the Clinton crimes?”
