State Dept Reveals 2,800 of Abedin’s Gov Docs on Weiner’s Laptop

Published

on

Government watchdog group Judicial Watch revealed on Tuesday that the FBI has given the Department of State 2,800 of Huma Abedin’s work-related documents that were found on her estranged husband Anthony Weiner’s laptop.

Abedin, a longtime Hillary Clinton aide, was the deputy chief of staff while the former First Lady served as Secretary of State. Weiner recently plead guilty to sending obscene material to a minor after his graphic sexts with a 15-year-old girl were made public.

According to the press release from Judicial Watch, Abedin kept a non-State.gov email account that she used repeatedly for government business on Hillary Clinton’s notorious email server(s).

“The revelation was produced in a May 5, 2015, lawsuit Judicial Watch filed against the State Department (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)). Judicial Watch sued after the State Department failed to respond to a March 18, 2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking: ‘All emails of official State Department business received or sent by former Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin from January 1, 2009 through February 1, 2013 using a non-‘state.gov’ email address,’” the press release explained.

According to the State Department’s court filing, a review and production of the material obtained on Weiner’s laptop should be completed by December 31, 2017.

“This is a disturbing development. Our experience with Abedin’s emails suggest these Weiner laptop documents will include classified and other sensitive materials,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton in a statement. “When will the Justice Department do a serious investigation of Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s obvious violations of law?”

The press release also notes that Judicial watch has previously released 20 productions of documents in this case that show examples of mishandling of classified information and instances of pay to play between the Clinton State Department and the Clinton Foundation.

“Also, at least 627 emails were not part of the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton turned over, and further contradict a statement by Clinton that, ‘as far as she knew,’ all of her government emails had been turned over to department,” the release continues.

1,100 Liberal Prosecutors, Bureaucrats, Demand Bill Barr’s Resignation from DOJ

The letter is indicative of just how left-wing the Department of Justice’s culture has become.

Published

on

More than 1,100 former Department of Justice prosecutors and employees signed a letter released Sunday demanding that Attorney General Bill Barr resign from office.

The letter takes a staunchly partisan Democratic tone, leaving no doubt as to their partisan allegiances of the high-ranking government employees who have signed it. The letter claims that Barr is “doing the President’s personal bidding” for clamping down on a culture of corruption present within elements of the powerful government entity.

The liberal bureaucrats are especially upset with Barr’s intervention in the criminal case of a former Trump campaign advisor, Roger Stone. Stone was set to be sentenced to a draconian and lengthy prison sentence for process crimes that amount to no more than lying to congress, a witch hunt that had many James Comey-style elite DOJ employees smitten with glee. Barr intervened to overturn the sentencing goals of prosecutors tasked with the case, leading to several of them resigning in protest.

The moralistic and sanctimonious letter claims that Barr is somehow harming the credibility of the already controversial department, but the DoJ alumni that have openly endorsed it seem largely unaware that their own endorsement of a staunchly partisan and anti-Trump statement does far more to harm the already- questionable credibility of the department.

The letter from outraged bureaucrats is one of the latest incidences that suggest a liberal institutional bias prevailing at nearly every level of the Department of Justice. A chief FBI press officer was recently forced to resign after it was revealed that he accepted lavish gifts from New York Times and CNN reporters.

Also, as Stone remains lined up for a draconian prison sentence for conversations with government employees, anti-Trump agitator Andrew McCabe appears set to wholly escape any accountability for his naked partisanship revealed throughout the 2016 election.
