Bribery and obstruction of justice: FBI alteration of Clinton emails - J. Marsolo

by J. Marsolo

If Hillary wins, this criminal attempt at bribery and obstruction of justice will be buried and forgotten

Obama and his State Department, with the assistance of the MSM, are trying to spin the State Department asking for reclassification of Hillary's emails in return for overseas slots as just a discussion with no wrongdoing involved. Obama stresses that the email was not reclassified and no overseas slots were given to the FBI.

Spin in D.C. is called lying outside D.C.

This is absurd and legally nonsense. If I offer to bribe a police officer, it does not matter whether he accepts or not. If I tell a police officer, How about reclassifying the drunk driving charge to reckless driving? And by the way, you can use my condo for vacation, that is crime. Exactly the same occurred here. It does not matter if I only say, Do me a favor, and I will do you a favor. It does not matter if we did not go through with it.

The problem is that Obama and Hillary have gotten away with whatever they do, so this is nothing to them. They just shrug it off.

According to the Washington Post on 10/18/16, quoting the FBI agent, the events are as follows:
"He said, 'Brian. Pat Kennedy. I need a favor,'" McCauley recalled in an interview Tuesday. "I said, 'Good, I need a favor. I need our people back in Baghdad."
Then Kennedy, a longtime State Department official, explained what he wanted in return: "There's an email. I don't believe it has to be classified."
The agent, Brian McCauley, and the State Department official, Patrick Kennedy, a close aide to Hillary when she was secretary of state, act as if they were discussing trading baseball cards. The fact is, McCauley was conducting a criminal investigation of Hillary, and Kennedy was trying to get McCauley to reclassify an email. It is not up to the FBI to reclassify an email. The emails were classified when sent, so the opinion of McCauley is irrelevant, but it shows how desperate the Obama State Department was to reclassify an email to help Hillary. The FBI does not have the authority to reclassify an email that was classified when sent.

Moreover, the emails were under subpoena by Congress, so the emails had to remain in the original untampered state. Thus, altering or attempting to alter the emails would be obstruction of justice.

In criminal law, an attempt to commit a crime provides that steps were taken to carry out the attempt. Here, McCauley and Kennedy discussed and agreed upon the exchange. This is a criminal attempt. If we had a Justice Department, both would be charged. It would then be up to a court to decide if they are guilty. But the real issue is not criminal guilt in a court of law. The issue is that the Obama State Department tried to alter an email to help Hillary, and the voters have a right to know the facts before the election. It is the court of public opinion that matters.

Obama seems desperate to bury this story. He belittled and joked about it, but he knows that it is serious if the truth comes out.

If Hillary wins, this criminal attempt at bribery and obstruction of justice will be buried and forgotten.

There will be an investigation only if Trump wins. Only then will we learn what Obama and Hillary knew and when they knew it.
