FBI investigators looking into Hillary Clinton’s email use in 2016 sought access to “highly classified information” they said was “necessary” to complete their probe, but later withdrew the request and cleared Clinton of wrongdoing. Now, the Justice Department (DOJ) has 10 days to explain itself, three top Republican Senate committee chairmen said Tuesday.
The renewed GOP push for answers comes a month after it emerged that the DOJ negotiated an agreement with Clinton’s legal team that ensured the FBI did not have access to emails on her private servers relating to the Clinton Foundation. Republicans, citing whistleblowers, have contended that the charitable organization may have been involved in pay-to-play schemes, misappropriation of funds and quid-pro-quo promises made to donors during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.
The article goes on to state the following:
Meanwhile, sources confirmed to Fox News on Tuesday that as many as two dozen individuals may be implicated in House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes’ criminal referrals to the DOJ arising out of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s recently concluded Russia probe. The sources confirmed that the referrals related in part to the anti-Trump dossier compiled by British ex-spy Christopher Steele, and his work for the Clinton camp and the Democratic National Committee-funded firm Fusion GPS.
In a letter to the DOJ, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, Finance Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley and Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Ron Johnson demanded more information as to why the FBI’s Clinton email investigation, known as “Midyear Exam,” concluded without apparently accessing classified materials.
Relying on the findings in an unclassified DOJ Inspector General (IG) report and a classified annex attached to the report, the senators noted that the FBI “acquired classified material that ‘may have included information potentially relevant to the Midyear investigation,’ and the bureau later “drafted a memorandum in May of 2016 stating that access to the information was ‘necessary to complete the investigation.'”
