The Justice Department "negotiated" an agreement with Hillary Clinton's legal team that ensured the FBI did not have access to emails on her private servers relating to the Clinton Foundation, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok testified during a closed-door appearance before the House Judiciary Committee last summer, according to a newly released transcript.
Republicans late last year renewed their efforts to probe the Clinton Foundation, after tax documents showed a plunge in its incoming donations after Clintons 2016 presidential election. The numbers fueled longstanding allegations of possible pay-to-play transactions at the organization, amid a Justice Department probe covering foundation issues.
Under questioning from Judiciary Committee General Counsel Zachary Somers, Strzok acknowledged that Clinton's private personal email servers contained a mixture of emails related to the Clinton Foundation, her work as secretary of state and other matters.
"Were you given access to [Clinton Foundation-related] emails as part of the investigation?" Somers asked

How utterly corrupt of them! But everyone knows that.
Strozk and Page now both saying “it wasn’t us, we were just following orders from above”.
Here’s their out: From the article
“But Strzok, in his closed-door interview, denied that the DOJ exercised undue influence over the FBI, and insisted that lawyers at the DOJ were involved in an advisory capacity working with agents.”
“Advisory capacity” yeah, as in I advise you do this and, if you don’t, you’ll get what’s coming to you. Unsaid, but understood.
Meanwhile they send a force larger than the Bin Laden raid team to arrest Roger Stone.
And tens of thousands of black dudes are sitting in prison thinking “man, I should have really negotiated a deal with the FBI and told them where and when they could search my house, phone, and what they could take and what they couldn’t”.
Banana Republic. These SOBs have to go to prison or this country is done.
Wink wink nudge nudge
“But Strzok, in his closed-door interview, denied that the DOJ exercised undue influence over the FBI”
Total bullcrap. The FBI doesn’t do anything in a case without the permission of the local US Attorney. The average city cop has far more discretionary power as to whether or not to make an arrest and forward a case than any FBI agent.
It’s a source of levity among state and local agencies.
The agreement was reached, Strzok said, because according to the attorneys, we lacked probable cause to get a search warrant for those servers and projected that either it would take a very long time and/or it would be impossible to get to the point where we could obtain probable cause to get a warrant.
How is it possible that they did not have probable cause? This seems fishy on the face of it.
“after Clintons 2016 presidential election”
“...I can tell you that in no way would that extramarital affair have any power in coercing me to do anything other than obeying the law and doing honest, competent investigation.””
You and the entire FBI Cabal are az dishonest as Whitey Bulger...
Little editorial cleanup there.
John Huber and Jeff Sessions are on it.
Its just a coincidence that Strzok and Page hated Trump and vowed they would stop him.
Like Comey pointing at Lynch, they were all in on it. It was a Presidental Coup attempt.
Comey, Strzok, and Yates were operating under the belief that their actions would remain Classified and sealed for 15 years.
Rosenstein / Comey let Sessions know he was compromised. Huber is a Fraud cooked up to prevent any real Investigation.
Trust The Plant.
So...Congress knew about all this over a year ago, and just sat on it. Not only SAT on it, but democrats just kept pushing the Trump is evil line. Maggots! Although, if they turned it over to the justice department as it was then, it probably would have been buried even deeper. But then, REPUBLICANS were in power then! There is absolutely NO excuse for their behavior. Feckless, underhanded maggots.
More likely they are in on it
That has appeared to be a likely possibility to many of us for some time now.
I bet the new AG will get right on this./sarc
This goes to the top, so go to the top and stop pussy footing around
