Ty Clevenger is a New York lawyer. He filed a Freedom of Information Act request concerning Hillary’s email investigation – and he was denied, because according to the FBI, not enough “public interest” was shown to justify completing the request. They say that records from files of former investigations will be released only if the subject directly consents, is deceased, or if there is strong public interest.
FBI records management section chief David M. Hardy sent an email to Cleavenger, telling him that he has not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject and also that it is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA.”
Now, considering that this investigation was a major scandal, don’t you consider it ‘public interest’?
Clevenger was actually asking for the documents that were filed after a referral to the DOJ from former House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz. He actually asked the DOJ to investigate and determine whether Hillary or any of her employees violated statues that prohibit destruction of records or congressional inquiries and concealment of evidence material to a congressional investigation.”
It turned out that she used to have a secret, non-government, server during her time as Secretary of State, but still does not deserve charges – she allegedly did not know how dangerous that secret serve might be, even though the national security was put at risk.
A petition has already been started to and it is expected to be proved that there IS interest in the email scandal!
