FBI Agents Say Comey 'Stood In The Way' Of Clinton Email Investigation

20 Octubre 2016

One interviewee described feeling "pressured" by another FBI official at Kennedy's request.

McCauley acknowledged, "it was a quid pro quo; I don't deny it".

"Not only is there no proof".

McCauley, for his part, said "there was no collusion, there was absolutely no collusion. Blumenthal's email account was breached by the Romanian hacker Guccifer". "All I can say is that there was no quid pro quo". "This was simple - an inter-agency conversation about the classification over one particular e-mail".

This group also attempted to control the FBI's release of documents related to the Clinton email probe, pushing for the FBI to withhold all of the documents and release them all in a single lump at the end of the process, instead of releasing them in several batches as they ultimately did.

The records indicate that Kennedy made that suggestion, but both the FBI and State Department said Monday that it was the unidentified FBI official. "That is appalling", an FBI special agent who has worked public corruption and criminal cases said of the decision.

But McCauley changed his mind when he found out from another agent that the disputed email was related to the Benghazi attack.

"IPS felt immense pressure to complete the review quickly and not label anything as classified", according to interview notes from a State Department official whose name wasn't disclosed in the FBI summary. And as news about the emails hit, Melania Trump made her first public comments about the allegations of sexual assault and misconduct lodged against her husband. U.S. Department of State spokesman John Kirby debunked the allegations during an interview on Fox & Friends on Tuesday, October 18. This communication took place amid Hillary's denials that any classified material was sent or received on her email, which her former employees still working at State - including Kennedy - knew to be a lie.

The president's remarks come as Trump and his Republican allies are looking for ways to swing momentum their way after a damaging few weeks in the campaign.

The FBI maintained the email should remain classified.

In a video late Monday, Republican nominee Donald Trump, Clinton's main rival in the November 8 presidential election, called the latest revelations "very big".

McCauley said, though, he had no authority to actually change classification. Kennedy also reportedly tried to change the classifications on scores of other emails as well.

No increase in FBI Iraq slots resulted from this conversation, Toner said. "We didn't think it needed to be classified, but the FBI held firm to their position".

"Kennedy's attempt to barter away American national security interests for plainly political purposes is appalling, and may rise to the level of a federal crime", Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., wrote in a letter to Attorney General Loretta Lynch on Tuesday.

Clinton had initially claimed that none of her emails contained classified information. "So let's see how the press covers it. The press likes not to cover it because the best thing Hillary Clinton has going is the media". Devin Nunes and Jason Chaffetz, respectively, put out a joint statement calling the allegations "disturbing" and asked for Kennedy's removal. "I need our people back in Baghdad". TCPalm.com reported that Indian County deputies responded about two and a half hours later to a 911 call from Dangerfield, in which he told dispatchers where emergency responders would be able to find his body. "Therefore, President Obama and Secretary Kerry should immediately remove Undersecretary Kennedy pending a full investigation".

Obama delivered his biting rebuke at White House, where he hosted Italy's Prime Minister Matteo Renzi for a state visit.
