Politifact: Hillary Clinton Incorrectly Said FBI Agreed She Was Truthful to Public

Hillary Clinton’s claim that FBI Director James Comey agreed that she was truthful to the public about classified emails is “incorrect,” reports Politifact.com. 

Clinton made the comment in an interview with Fox News Sunday.

“Clinton appear to have selective hearing,” Politifact concluded.

In fact, when Comey was asked during a congressional hearing whether Hillary lied to the public, the director responded, “That’s not a question I’m qualified to answer.”

Comey added that he hadn’t analyzed her public comments.

Politifact wrote:

When Comey announced the FBI’s findings July 5, it was clear that there are obvious inconsistencies between what Clinton said publicly about classified information on her private email server before her FBI interview and what the FBI found. Pointedly, Clinton said there wasn’t any classified information in her email, and he said there was.

The Obama administration has repeatedly denied that anyone from his administration was involved with the Secret Service’s 2012 prostitution scandal in Columbia.

But the Washington Post reports that new information suggests one of the presidential advance-team members was involved but never thorough investigated.

In fact, the White House continued to say no one from the administration was involved, despite evidence that includes hotel records and firsthand accounts.

The lead investigator said he was pressured to withhold evidence.

“We were directed at the time . . . to delay the report of the investigation until after the 2012 election,” David Nieland, the lead investigator on the Colombia case for the DHS inspector general’s office, told Senate staffers, according to three people with knowledge of his statement.

According to Nieland, his supervisors told him “to withhold and alter certain information in the report of investigation because it was potentially embarrassing to the administration.”

 

The Examiner Editorial: On FOIA, Obama Wants a License to Lie

By The Examiner

It’s not often that the liberal American Civil Liberties Union and conservative Judicial Watch agree on anything, but the Obama administration’s lack of transparency has brought the two together.

Obama’s Justice Department has proposed a regulatory change that would weaken the Freedom of Information Act. Under the new rules, the government could falsely respond to those who file FOIA requests that a document does not exist if it pertains to an ongoing criminal investigation, concerns a terrorist organization, or a counterintelligence operation involving a foreign nation.

There are two problems with the Obama proposal to allow federal officials to affirmatively assert that a requested document doesn’t exist when it does. First, by not citing a specific exemption allowed under the FOIA as grounds for denying a request, the proposal would cut off a requestor from appealing to the courts.

Calif. Atty. Convicted of Taking Bribes to Get Client to Lie to Grand Jury

A California attorney thought he’d make some extra cash by getting his client to lie before a grand jury in Los Angeles in a visa fraud case. Now he won’t need that cash when he heads off to prison.

Alfred Nash Villalobos, 46, of South Lake Tahoe, Calif., was found guilty Wednesday in federal court in Los Angeles of taking $50,000 in bribes to get his client to lie to the grand jury and a federal prosecutor. The $50,000 was part more than $100,000 he was demanding from a Century City attorney, whose client was the the target of the grand jury, the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

Authorities say the problem with the little scheme was that the Century City attorney Villalobos was shaking down had gone to the FBI and was recording the conversations.

For Villalobos, it was not such a clever plan after all.
