State Department spokesman Mark Toner denied that there was any talk of a “quid pro quo” between senior State official Patrick Kennedy and the FBI regarding the declassification of at least one of Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s emails from her private server.
Toner called the allegation “insulting” on Monday as he took answers from the media.
Toner added that there was no discussion of a quid pro quo. He also said that there was no discussion of an exchange regarding classification procedures and FBI positions in U.S. embassies.
These statements contradicted information revealed Monday that a senior State Department official proposed a “quid pro quo” in an effort to convince the FBI to remove a classification from an email from Hillary Clinton’s server. In exchange, the FBI was to be allowed to expand its operations abroad, the New York Post reported.
Documents revealed an unidentified individual who said that he was “pressured” to “change the classified email to unclassified.”
“(Redacted) indicated he had been contacted by PATRICK KENNEDY, Undersecretary of State, who had asked his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo,’” the 302 states. “(Redacted) advised that in exchange for marking the email unclassified, STATE would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more Agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.”
Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz told Fox News the discrepancy was a “flashing red light of potential criminality.” He and others have called for Kennedy’s removal, as well as a misconduct investigation into the matter.
It’s hard to disagree with him — unless you’re a Democrat.
The sheer amount of corruption associated with Hillary Clinton and just this one scandal is staggering.
The State Department, the FBI, Attorney General Loretta Lynch and President Barack Obama are all in on this mess, and it only proves that the investigation into Clinton’s emails was a sham before it ever started.
