According to new reports, the FBI has found enough evidence in their investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private server that shows she violated federal records keeping laws.
Dailycaller.com reported: She was also informed in 2009, her first year in office, that she had an obligation under the Federal Records Act to forward her State Department work emails to the agency’s record preservation system.
But, according to the news website Circa, Clinton opted against that option because she wanted control over “sensitive” messages. Circa’s report comes from former Washington Times veteran reporter John Solomon and is based on unnamed sources familiar with the FBI’s investigation of Clinton.
That probe ended in July when the FBI and Justice Department declined to press charges against the Democratic presidential candidate or her aides for their handling of classified information.
But sources told Solomon that there was ample evidence that Clinton violated the Federal Records Act by failing to save her work-related emails to the State Department’s SMART system and by exclusively using a private BlackBerry and email account.
That claim, if true, would grossly undermine Clinton’s assertion that she did not use the private email system to flout FOIA. A federal judge has granted the watchdog group Judicial Watch discovery in order to get to the bottom of that issue.
The group recently submitted 25 questions to Clinton asking her why and how she set up the private email system.
