A top State Department official tried to pressure the FBI to change its determination that at least one of the e-mails on Hillary Clinton’s private server contained classified content, prompting discussion of a possible trade to resolve the issue, two FBI employees told colleagues investigating her use of a private server last year.And we're also learning about the level of fealty that at least one of our media watchdogs gives to a key Clinton figure, John Podesta:
One FBI official conceded that he told the State Department employee he would “look into” changing the classification of a Clinton e-mail if the official would lend his authority to an FBI request to increase its personnel in Iraq, according to documents released by the bureau Monday.
In an astonishing email, Politico chief White House political correspondent and senior staff writer Glenn Thrush ran his latest article by Hillary Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta to make sure nothing offended the Clinton henchman.I do appreciate the admission that Glenn Thrush is a hack. At least he's honest enough to admit as much.
"Because I have become a hack I will send u the whole section that pertains to u [sic]," Thrush wrote to Podesta. "Please don't share or tell anyone I did this … tell me if I f***ed up anything," he continued.
"OTR: No problems here," Podesta responded.
At this point, it's becoming clear that Hillary Clinton is going to be president. It's also becoming clear that her organization is corrupt as hell. This election could turn out to be a lot like 1972 -- a landslide followed by scandals galore. I suspect we'll learn a lot more in the coming days.
