The reason why Hillary Clinton hasn't been indicted for her illegal handling of classified emails is because former President Barack Obama is implicated in her scheme, according to testimony given under oath by a former top FBI official.
Bill Priestap divulged a nonexhaustive list to conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch identifying representatives of Clinton, her State Department staff, and government agencies from which “email repositories were obtained” by the FBI – included was Executive Office of the President.
Priestep answered questions in writing and under oath as part of U.S. District Judge Royce Lamberth's ruling earlier this year that discovery could commence examining the former secretary of state’s use of the server, encompassing Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Priestap.
Judicial Watch shared Priestep's recent testimony on Tuesday, at a time when Republican allies of President Trump, as well as the Justice Department and its inspector general, are looking into possible misconduct by top DOJ and FBI officials stemming back to the Obama administration to undermine Trump as a candidate and president.
“This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama’s White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said in a statement. “No wonder Hillary Clinton has thus far skated — Barack Obama is implicated in her email scheme.”
Priestap served as former assistant director of the FBI's counterintelligence division and played a significant role in overseeing both the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s private email server and her handling of classified information. He also was involved in the FBI’s investigation into allegations that President Trump and Trump campaign associates were colluding with the Russian government during the 2016 election.
