Recently the conservative organization Judicial Watch revealed the contents of several emails from former FBI counterintelligence agent Peter Strzok, and former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who would have had preferential treatment with the lawyer representing former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s collaborators.
As the conservative BizPac Review website indicates, Beth Wilkinson, Clinton’s lawyer met with top FBI officials and even received privileged treatment in which she was warned about media coverage and given the opportunity to participate in “discreet” meetings.
According to Judicial Watch President Tim Fitton’s statements to Fox News, Wilkinson, who was the lawyer for Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, Jake Sullivan and Philippe Reines, Clinton’s advisers, had a favorable contact with FBI officials who were in charge of the former U.S. Secretary of State’s private server.
Fitton described the situation as “outrageous,” pointing out that for the same reason a criminal investigation should be opened against Clinton.
According to Judicial Watch, former FBI attorney James Baker told an anonymous official in the FBI’s Office of the General Counsel in a March 1, 2016 letter, “[Wilkinson] appreciated the heads up about the pending press articles. She wants to meet with the DD [Deputy Director] but can only meet on the weekends right now. I will check his availability tomorrow.”
In another email of March 4, 2016, addressed to senior FBI officials, Baker wrote, “I think we are now back on track. She is going to call [redacted] today or tomorrow about scheduling the next interview. Given the witness’s personal schedule, Beth said that it may not happen for a few weeks but she will work that out.”
“We also discussed making sure that this is done in a secure location in a discreet way. (…) But I said that we will make sure that it happens in a high quality way,” Baker added in the mail.
As Judicial Watch points out, in another email sent to Strzok, Baker states: “She understands that it needs to be in a SCIF [Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility].”
“She seems more comfortable with NYFO [New York Field Office], but I think would be open to WFO [Washington Field Office] if she can get in and out in a discreet manner,” the mail continues referring to a meeting.
On March 20, 2016, Strzok sent an email with the note “My Frustration” to the then deputy director of the FBI Jonathan Moffa, in which he expressed:
“Big news of the day? Beth [presumably Wilkinson] said none of the laptops we have had the original 60k [presumably Hillary’s 60,000 emails]. The two that did were—and are—the personal laptops of Cheryl [Mills] and Heather [Samuelson]. [Redacted] That they are still using now,” according to Judicial Watch.
As BizPac Review points out, Fitton told Hannity that because of the alarming documents recently obtained, it was understandable why the FBI was delaying the release of the statements.
