Did the FBI and the Department of Justice coordinate their response in the Clinton case? There are department emails that indicate that after a bunch of Top Secret emails were discovered to have been on her server, there were emails swapped trying to forge a path for the investigation. This does not reflect what James Comey testified to before Congress. This view just keeps getting uglier and uglier. Pretty so we will see who was pulling the strings all along.
As Written and Reported By Catherine Herridge for Fox News:
Emails reviewed by Fox News from February 2016 suggest the FBI and DOJ worked together to craft a response to a key development in the Hillary Clinton email investigation, amid newly raised Republican concerns about a “concerning level of coordination” between the two agencies during the probe.
The emails concern the period after 22 messages with “Top Secret” information were found on the former secretary of state’s personal email server.
Republican Rep. Mark Meadows cited them in a letter earlier this week claiming former FBI Director James Comey’s testimony to Congress – in which he downplayed FBI-DOJ coordination on the Clinton case – may be at odds with documents suggesting “frequent” coordination.
Comey specifically said in public testimony that he did not coordinate with the DOJ for his July 2016 public recommendation not to pursue charges against Clinton. Meadows, however, pointed to a series of messages he claims indicate potential coordination at several “crucial moments of the investigation” – including the July statement and the period in February. While the FBI is part of the Justice Department and communication between the two agencies is inevitable, Meadows’ letter also suggests some at the FBI were concerned about the perception it was not acting independently in a politically explosive case.
