Amid the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump’s call with the Ukrainian president, Senator Ron Johnson wants to take a look at Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s emails. Johnson said the Justice Department was blocking the release of the emails.
In a letter to the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration, Johnson, R-Wis., said summer 2016 communications from FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok to FBI Director James Comey’s Chief of Staff James Rybicki hinted at the existence of the Clinton-Obama messages that were relevant to the issues raised by her private server. –Fox News
Johnson noted that on June 28, 2016, a week before Comey’s public statement declaring that “no reasonable prosecutor” would charge Clinton, embattled former FBI agent Peter Strzok wrote, “Jim – I have the POTUS – HRC emails [Director Comey] requested at end of briefing yesterday. I hesitate to leave them, please let me know a convenient time to drop them off.”
“I write to request email communications between former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama,” Johnson wrote, setting a deadline of Nov. 14, 2019. “In January 2018, I requested the Department of Justice (DOJ) produce emails Secretary Clinton sent to President Obama while she was located in the ‘territory of a sophisticated adversary.'”
He added: “Given that DOJ acknowledged that they ‘are not in a position’ to produce emails to the committee that contain ‘equities of other executive branch entities,’ I ask that, pursuant to the Presidential Records Act, you please provide all email communications between Secretary Clinton and President Obama.” –Fox News
Johnson’s letter demanding the release of these emails came as House Democrats approved procedures for their impeachment inquiry against President Trump. Democrats said that Trump may have endangered United States national security by allegedly withholding aid to Ukraine for political reasons. Earlier this month, a State Department report into Clinton’s use of a private email server for government business found dozens of people at fault and hundreds of national security violations.
Neither Obama or Clinton have been made to pay for what they’ve done, while it looks like Trump is going to take the fall for Joe Biden and his son’s corruption. What a time to be alive. No wonder Americans are turning against the government in record numbers.
Johnson says that these emails could shed light on whether the former secretary of state discussed sensitive matters on her unsecured personal email system while she was overseas, according to a report by Fox News.
