The FBI has rejected multiple FOIA requests for information on Hillary Clinton’s notorious unsecure email server, claiming that it falls under the category of things they don’t have to release because of – brace yourself - a “lack of public interest.” The attorney seeking the records told the Washington Times, “I’m just stunned. This is exactly what I would have expected had Mrs. Clinton won the election, but she didn’t. It looks like the Obama administration is still running the FBI. How can a story receive national news coverage and not be a matter of public interest? If this is the new standard, then there’s no such thing as a public interest exception.”
If anyone at the FBI is reading this, I for one am keenly interested in this subject. I bet there are at least a hundred million or so more Americans who are also very interested. And equally interesting is that statement that the FBI under Trump is acting just as secretive, duplicitous and partisan as it was under Obama. This should serve as a wake-up call to President Trump that just cutting off the head didn’t kill the snake. Sounds like a lot more chopping will be necessary to restore integrity to the agency.
