Evidence Tampering Suspected in FBI’s Clinton e-Mail Scandal Investigation
FBI files show there are 2 missing boxes of printouts of Hillary Clinton’s e-Mails, as well as an allegation of evidence tampering.
Initially there were 14 boxes at an office used by Mrs. Clinton and her associates in Washington, DC, and were missing when State Department employees went to take custody of the boxes in December 2014.
Details about the boxes are outlined in 5 heavily redacted pages of the FBI file posted that summarize statements of a State Department witness who worked in the “Office of Information Programs and Services (IPS).”
According to the data, the witness told the FBI “on or about 5 December 2014, IPS personnel picked up only 12 bankers boxes of Mrs. Clinton’s emails . . .”
The officials were not sure if the boxes “were consolidated or what could have happened to the 2 other boxes,” according to the summary.
A senior State Department official told his staffers to change markings on the e-Mails so the public and Congress would not know they were redacted because they contained classified information, according to the FBI summary.
In reply to the FBI summary, and the claim Mr. Kennedy allegedly tampered with the Freedom of Information Act review process, State Department spokesman Elizabeth Trudeau said they “strongly refute those claims.”
“The department has complete confidence that the . . . attorneys performed the highest professional and ethical standards, including, with connection, with the review and release of Secretary Clinton’s emails.”
Crooked Hillary at work…
Have a terrific weekend
