The FBI’s decision to not charge Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information is looking even less defensible in the wake of additional evidence that collusion occurred between the former Secretary of State’s staff and the highest levels of government.
While Republicans long suspected that the Obama administration was protecting Clinton from prosecution, federal authorities’ reluctance to touch the scandal and the media’s refusal to give it the attention it deserved prevented incontrovertible evidence from surfacing. Absent said evidence, liberals were able to smear Americans who believed the matter warranted attention as “conspiracy theorists” and Clinton haters who couldn’t bear the thought of a woman becoming president.
But now, several months after the feds announced that Hillary was off the hook, staggering evidence that the State Department colluded with her to save her skin has accumulated in the form of emails leaked from the files of Clinton loyalist John Podesta.
Adding on top of earlier releases that established collusion between the Clinton campaign and the Justice Department, the latest emails prove that the Democratic candidate’s staff were kept appraised of what the State Department planned to do regarding her emails, including letting them know when they planned to release those pertaining to Benghazi:

All — DOS is soon releasing another round of documents and email traffic (not hers) in response to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request on DOS’s process for reviewing WJC’s speaking engagements.
It’s 116 pages with approx. 50 sponsor/subsponsor requests. No objections by DOS in this batch, but some lengthy internal discussions among DOS officials that I highlighted below.
There is one request where speaking fee would have been paid by Turkish govt — WJC’s office declined this. And one speaking engagement with fee from Canadian government, which he did do.
Let me know if you have any questions.
In light of the ongoing speculation that there may have been collusion between the DOJ and Bill Clinton (and thus Hillary), following the infamous ‘tarmac encounter’, where Bill and Loretta Lynch spoke for 40 minutes about ‘Bill’s golf game and grandchildren’, the discovery that there was collusion between the State Department and Hillary Clinton, who formerly headed it, seems like a potential conflict of interest to us.”
