State Dept. Official Bribed FBI In Clinton Email Scandal


A senior State Department official offered a “quid pro quo” bribe to an FBI official in an attempt to declassify certain emails from Hillary Clinton’s private email server that were previously classified, according to new FBI documents released on Monday.

The documents shows that Patrick Kennedy proposed the declassification of the emails in exchange for the FBI being allowed to operate in countries where they are currently “forbidden” to be in.

“[Redacted] indicated he had been contacted by PATRICK KENNEDY, Undersecretary of State, who had asked his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo,’” states the FBI document, a summary of an interview the agency conducted in investing Clinton’s email server.

“[Redacted] advised that in exchange for marking the email unclassified, STATE would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more Agents in countries where they are presently forbidden,” the document adds.

The redactions in the FBI documents take out the name of the FBI official who was talking with Kennedy.
