In an interview with Fox News, Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-TN) said that it was now clear that the State Department itself helped Hillary Clinton break the law and avoid the consequences. Not only did the agency allow Hillary to work from a private server while she was in charge, they did not require her to turn over her records as she was heading out the door.
“She had this arrangement for the entire time she was secretary of state, then she kept them for two years,” Gowdy said Sunday. “It was only because the State Department would not go away, and that’s when it gets interesting.”
Gowdy said that it was now a matter of public record that Clinton aides worked hand in hand with State Department actors and Platte River Networks technicians to hide evidence from Congress.
“The State Department, which is supposed to be apolitical, non-interested in the next presidential election, has been covering for Hillary Clinton since she left office,” said Gowdy.
Most disturbing to the Tennessee representative, however, was the document dump released by the FBI last Friday. In that publication, we learned that the Department of Justice handed out immunity to five of Hillary’s associates, including former Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills.
“Number one, if you think that there is evidence that is relevant to an investigation on a piece of physical property, you use a subpoena, a grand jury subpoena,” said Gowdy. “You don’t strike an immunity agreement with the computer, you go get the computer. Her lawyer, Beth Wilkinson, who represents Heather Samuelsson and Cheryl Mills, she’s on record of saying ‘the Department of Justice assured me my clients did nothing wrong.’ Well, people who have done nothing wrong typically don’t ask for immunity so my question would be immunity from what? What was it you were worried about?”
Exactly. Five people were given immunity by the DOJ. As Gowdy pointed out, their “crimes,” as it were, could only be the very same crimes the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton for. But if they were crimes and they were committed…uh…where the hell is the Justice Department?
“Someone in the Department of Justice had to decide to pass out these immunity agreements,” Gowdy said. “I have seen the get out of jail free cards, Bret. What I don’t see is the jail. Usually you strike immunity to further a prosecution. There is no prosecution. It’s just five get-out-of-jail-free cards.”
Five cards that ultimately led to a sixth.
The full story of this miscarriage of justice may not be known for years, but even without all the facts, we have a chance to write the final chapter in November. Hopefully, that’s exactly what we’ll do.
