A State Dept. Official Tried to Bribe FBI to Get Hillary Off the Hook

Recent FBI documents unraveled today shows the extent of corruption and criminality- Hillary Clinton and her camp would go through just to save her as and of course, more importantly, her presidential ambitions.

A State Department Official proposed a " quid pro quo" to bribe the FBI to strip the classification of an email from Hillary's server. The official did not stop when such " request" was denied. The State Department official continued to try to influence the bureau's decision, going further up the chain of command.

Quid pro quo means " something for something" or " this for that" in Latin. In political terms, it can mean that when something is taken, something is given, and not always in the most judicious or legal of means.

Fox News, in fact, earlier, reported over the week-end that 302s known as FBI interview summaries and notes- included allegations of a quid pro quo prompting Rep. Jason Chaffetz to tell Fox News that there was a case of " flashing red light of potential criminality."

Documents revealed today reaffirmed such claims where notes from an interview with the yet to be disclosed FBI official say that then State Department Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy attempted to bribe the FBI, offering additional slots for the agency if they would, in return, agree to declassify a particular email marked SECRET.

The documents reveal that the official was " forced" to " change the classified email to "unclassified". All these, of course, to help Hillary off the hook. The bad thing is her allies at the State Department, acting on her behalf and certainly with her consent, flaunted state resources and flexed their " state muscles" in attempting to bribe the FBI official with a promise that the state would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they are currently forbidden.

Kennedy even threw his weight around and demanded to speak to a higher-up of the FBI, and was then referred to Michael Steinbach, then a top officer with the FBI's Counterterrorism Division. Kennedy continued to press for the change of the email markings from classified to unclassified. But Steinbach held his ground and refused.

Kennedy then inquired if the FBI plans to issue a public statement and was told the bureau will not be making one. Then shortly after, a story about the email did break into the media, with Hillary denying sending classified emails on her server. Talk about defensive and preemptive moves from the shrewd Hillary and her aides.

The State Department and the FBI in varying tones both deny these new allegations. Rep. Chaffetz meanwhile is recommending the removal of Under Secretary from office because of his " extremely disturbing actions".

This latest allegation clearly paints a picture of a cover-up for Hillary to absolve her from accountability. It also shows the extent she and her camp would go through everything to save the embattled queen's quest of the White House.
