Media outlets made FOIA requests for the materials.
The FBI came under fire when Director James Comey decided not to recommend charges against Hillary Clinton over her private email server and when the department revealed no one actually taped its interview with her.
The media responded with numerous Freedom of Information Acts requests for more details, which has led the department to release the notes agents took during the investigation and from Hillary’s interview.
CNN wrote that 30 pages make up the investigation while Hillary’s 302, the notes from her interview, is “about a dozen pages.”
The FBI will not release notes or interviews from her aides. But Hillary’s campaign did ask the FBI to make public the notes agents took during her interview.
The FBI interviewed Hillary for 3.5 hours on July 2 at its headquarters in DC. Three days later, Comey announced his shocking decision, despite listing all the ways Clinton and her aides were careless with classified materials on her private email server.
While the Department of Justice walked away, Congress and watchdog groups like Judicial Watch have refused to give up. The Oversight Committee asked the FBI to send over all the documents in order to understand Comey’s decision.
But Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz and others said officials redacted and blacked out too much information making them useless:
“The FBI has turned over a ‘number of documents’ related to their investigation of former Secretary Clinton’s use of a personal email server. Committee staff is currently reviewing the information that is classified SECRET. There are no further details at this time,” said an Oversight spokesman.
The committee is currently reviewing the information in them, which was classified as “secret.”
But then the State Department discovered a disc with over 15,000 emails that Hillary’s emails did not turn over during the investigation. Judicial Watch asked judges to tell the department to release all relevant emails to their FOIA request. A federal judge in Florida gave the State Department until September 13 to hand over the emails.
The State Department confirmed that “about 30 emails involving the 2012 attack on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya, are among the thousands of Hillary Clinton emails recovered” on that disc.DONATE
