Judge Andrew Napolitano told Fox News Monday morning that newly-released FBI documents show that a bribe was offered by a senior State Department official to FBI agents.
Patrick F. Kennedy was the undersecretary of state for management and is now being reported to have pressured FBI agents to change classification on documents found on Hillary’s server so that they could be archived and never seen by the public.
The FBI document states…
“[Redacted] indicated that he had been contacted by Patrick Kennedy, Undersecretary of State, who had asked his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a quid pro quo. [redacted] advised that in exchange for making the email unclassified State would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.”
The FBI notes also state…
“Kennedy further stated that the ‘B9’ classification would allow him to archive the document in the basement of [Department of State] never to be seen again,”
Kennedy denies the claim, but the proof is there, as indicated by Napolitano, Fox News’ senior judicial analyst. He says he believes the document points to several potential offenses.
“I’ve never seen this in my career, where an effort is made to change a document after it is evidence in a criminal prosecution. That is obstruction of justice, that is tampering with evidence, that’s offering a bribe. Why wasn’t someone charged with these crimes by the FBI?” he asked America’s Newsroom this morning.
“The mere discussion of it is itself a crime. It is a crime to bribe someone, it is a crime to offer to bribe someone. This was at best, a bribe, and at worst, an offer to bribe.”
