The FBI has officially obtained the warrant needed to pour over a massive amount of emails uncovered from Anthony Weiner’s private computer.

Apparently within those emails were correspondences sent between Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton, which could shed light on the Hillary private email scandal.

This latest discovery looks like Abedin is guilty as well, since she forwarded highly sensitive material to her private Yahoo address.

But now the US Justice Department has announced they too are joining the probe and vowed to dedicate all needed resources to promptly review the emails.

In their letter to Congress, the DOJ wrote:

“[We] will continue to work closely with the FBI and together, dedicate all necessary resources and take appropriate steps as expeditiously as possible.”

Reviewing these emails, which is estimated at over 500,000, needs a lot of manpower – but just why is the DOJ getting involved?

This letter to the House and Senate was written and signed by Assistant Attorney General Peter J. Kadzik.

Does Kadzik sound familiar to you?  It might, because Hillary’s campaign chair, John Podesta, had dinner with a top DOJ official the day after Hillary’s Benghazi hearing.

And that DOJ official was Peter Kadzik.

In the email correspondence, they discussed who would be “bringing the wine” for their outing. Presumably they were celebrating their “success” in the Benghazi hearings against the Democratic nominee for President.

That’s right.  Kadzik and Podesta are buddies.

Here’s what happened the night after the Benghazi hearings:

 “The day after Hillary Clinton testified in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi last October, John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman met for dinner with a small group of well-connected friends, including Peter Kadzik, who is currently a top official at the US Justice Department serving as Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs.

 The post-Benghazi dinner was attended by Podesta, Kadzik, superlobbyist Vincent Roberti and other well-placed Beltway fixtures.

 The first mention of personal contact between Podesta and Kadzik in the Wikileaks dump is in an Oct. 23, 2015 email sent out by Vincent Roberti, a lobbyist who is close to Podesta and his superlobbyist brother, Tony Podesta.

 In it, Roberti refers to a dinner reservation at Posto, a Washington D.C. restaurant.  The dinner was set for 7:30 that evening, just one day after Clinton gave 11 hours of testimony to the Benghazi Committee.

 Podesta and Kadzik met several months later for dinner at Podesta’s home, another email shows. Another email sent on May 5, 2015, Kadzik’s son asked Podesta for a job on the Clinton campaign.”

The Daily Caller noted that this dinner arrangement “is just the latest example of an apparent conflict of interest between the Clinton campaign and the federal agency charged with investigating the former secretary of state’s email practices.”

But this kind of collusion is exactly why the American people are infuriated by our current state of democracy.

The hacked emails from Podesta confirm he and Kadzik were in frequent contact with each other and were also classmates at Georgetown Law School in the 1970’s.

Even Kadzik’s son emailed Podesta asking for a job with the Clinton campaign!

Oh, one more thing.  Kadzik represented Podesta during the Monica Lewinsky investigation in the late 90’s.

Kadzik did such a great job that Podesta said he was a “fantastic lawyer” who “kept me out of jail.”

Now we have one of Podesta’s BFF’s in the DOJ and actively involved with the FBI’s email investigation.

So if the FBI and DOJ don’t find anything, now we’ll know why.
