Remember when Obama said his administration would be the most transparent administration in history? So why is it the Obama leftovers in the FBI keep hiding information from the American public?
Are we really that suprised after the fake Trump dossier was used by this same FBI to get a FISA warrant to spy on the Trump campaign?
Western Journalism reports, the FBI states it will not expedite the release of documents about secret meetings between FBI Director James Comey and former President Barack Obama, according to a letter the bureau sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
FBI WILL NOT RELEASE DOCUMENTS ON SECRET MEETINGS OF FBI DIRECTOR COMEY AND OBAMA
Such information is not “a matter of widespread and exceptional media interest in which there exists possible questions about the government’s integrity which affects public confidence,” David Hardy, the section chief for the bureau’s Record/Information Dissemination Section, told TheDCNF in a Feb. 26 letter.
TheDCNF, under the Freedom of Information Act, requested records of all meetings between Comey and Obama and sought an “expedited process” as provided under the act when issues are of great interest to the media and the records address issues pertaining to government integrity. TheDCNF FOIA request was filed Feb. 16, 2018.
The issue prompting the FOIA request was the disclosure of former FBI Director Comey held a secret Oval Office meeting with Obama on Jan. 5, 2017. Comey never divulged the meeting to Congress.
FORMER FBI DIRECTOR COMEY AND OBAMA MEETING NEVER DIVULGED
FBI said Comey lying to Congress – not of interest and shouldn’t impact America’s confidence. SERIOUSLY?
“The FBI just told us that Director James Comey potentially lying to Congress should not be of interest to us, that it doesn’t speak to their ‘integrity,’ and that it shouldn’t impact America’s ‘confidence’ in them,” Bedford said. “They said this with a straight face. We disagree, we think the American people disagree, and we think it’s absolutely shameful.”
Republican Sens. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee and subcommittee chairman, and Lindsey Graham released the Rice email after they received it from the National Archives.
“President Obama had a brief follow-on conversation with FBI Director Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates in the Oval Office,” Rice stated in the email on Jan. 5.
Now, isn’t anyone curious why Rice would send this email to HERSELF???? Again, didn’t Obama say this was going to be the MOST TRANSPARENT ADMINISTRATION?
FORMER FBI DIRECTOR COMEY WENT ‘BY THE BOOK’
The president urged Comey to proceed “by the book” on the Russian investigation, according to Rice.
Grassley of Iowa and Graham of South Carolina wrote to Rice in a Feb. 8 letter saying the email seemed “odd” to them.
“It strikes us as odd that, among your activities in the final moments on the final day of the Obama administration, you would feel the need to send yourself such an unusual email purporting to document a conversation involving President Obama,” the two wrote.
