Clinton campaign defends Hillary's refusal to cooperate with Inspector General e-mail investigation

POLITICO

Clinton spokesman says campaign prioritizing responses to FBI probe
By Nolan D. McCaskill
May 25, 2016


Hillary Clintonís campaign on Wednesday defended her decision not to cooperate with a government watchdog's audit of her private email server, arguing that the Clinton team wanted to focus on responding to the separate and ongoing FBI probe of the matter.

ďTo our mind, it made sense to prioritize the review being conducted by the Justice Department and so, accordingly, Hillary Clinton has said since last August that sheíll be happy to sit with them at whatever point they approach her, which has not happened yet,Ē Clinton press secretary Brian Fallon told CNNís Wolf Blitzer. ďAnd she has similarly encouraged all of her aides to cooperate in every way with that Justice Department review.Ē

Fallon said that Clinton didnít hide from the inspector general investigation by refusing to cooperate, arguing that she has answered numerous questions regarding her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state.

Fallon suggested the campaign didnít understand why the State Department inspector general would pursue an investigation on its own time while the same issue is being examined by the Justice Department.

He also said that there were questions raised about whether the inspector general ó a nonpartisan position appointed by President Barack Obama ó has an anti-Clinton bias, though he said there was no indication of any bias in the report that surfaced Wednesday.

The only reason why the State Department Inspector General criticized Hillary is because she is a woman and he is a sexist. Isn't the right .... or is that position total nonsense? Imagine 2015

3. The lies never stop.

 

"Fallon suggested the campaign didnít understand why the State Department inspector general would pursue an investigation on its own time while the same issue is being examined by the Justice Department."

Fallon is lying. He knows that the FBI is looking at whether any crimes were committed with respect to the handling of classified information and the IG was looking at a variety of other issues related to the use of the server, e.g., whether Clinton violated the federal records act (not a criminal offense).

5. Notice that no one asks Hillary if she is indicted will she withdraw her from the Primary

My bet she would stay in the race and spit in the eye of any indictment fairy.

6. Having trouble protecting keyboard from beverage

"...defends Hillary's refusal to cooperate with Inspector General"


"I think that at the end of this, it will be impossible for anybody to suggest that she didn't answer every question that anybody had,"


A very... um... interesting defense.

11. "...prioritize the review being conducted by the Justice Department"

Is Director of the Federal Bureau of Reviews, James Comey, going to have to hold another presser to set these folks straight?
