The plot thickens. But the obvious corruption of the FBi and the DOJ under Øbama is plain to see.

The Justice Department "negotiated" an agreement with Hillary Clinton's legal team that ensured the FBI did not have access to emails on her private servers relating to the Clinton Foundation, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok testified during a closed-door appearance before the House Judiciary Committee last summer, according to a newly released transcript.

Republicans late last year renewed their efforts to probe the Clinton Foundation, after tax documents showed a plunge in its incoming donations after Clinton’s 2016 presidential election. The numbers fueled longstanding allegations of possible “pay-to-play” transactions at the organization, amid a Justice Department probe covering foundation issues.

"Were you given access to [Clinton Foundation-related] emails as part of the investigation?" Somers asked

"We were not. We did not have access," Strzok responded. "My recollection is that the access to those emails were based on consent that was negotiated between the Department of Justice attorneys and counsel for Clinton."

The fix was in. Time for the DOJ to go back and look again. They need to continue cleaning house

Fix to what? The Clinton Foundation was not under investigation. The FBI had no reason to review the emails of a charity unrelated to their investigation.

This is bad and sufficient to reopen the investigation into both Hillary and her Foundation.

It appears the emails Hillary attempted to delete (destruction of evidence, obstruction of justice) contained references to the Foundation. There was a lot of money from a wide variety of sources flowing into her Foundation. Just like Trump has used his Foundation as a cash cow, so did Hillary (e.g. Chelsea's wedding dress). While I fully support the investigation into Trump and his finances, the same goes for Hillary and hers.
