The latest email dump from WikiLeaks (Part 26 now) from Clinton Campaign John Podesta shows a campaign of collusion between the Justice Department and Hillary’s campaign regarding the ongoing investigation into her email server.
A March 2015 email shows that Podesta attended a meeting with a lawyer for the Clinton campaign and several of her political action committees. WikiLeaks’ emails strongly suggest the Clinton campaign coordinated with these SuperPACS, in direct violation of federal law.
At the meeting, assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik tipped off Podesta at the Clinton campaign about the investigation at the DOJ. Kadzik is the one who is in charge of overseeing the probe into Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner’s emails from Clinton’s private server, the Observer is reporting.
“There is a HJC oversight hearing today where the head of our Civil Division will testify. Likely to get questions on State Department emails. Another filing in the FOIA case went in last night or will go in this am that indicates it will be awhile (2016) before the State Department posts the emails,” Kadzik wrote to Podesta in May 2015.
Podesta forwarded the email to several top Clinton staffers. The email suggests the Department of Justice was biased in favor of Hillary Clinton, and Kadzik’s tip to Podesta was highly unethical.
At ZeroHedge, they point out that Mr. Kadzik’s name seemed familiar… One day after the Benghazi hearing, John Podesta had dinner with that same gentleman at a ritzy restaurant. Here’s how they reported it last week:
The day after Hillary Clinton testified in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi last October, John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chairman met for dinner with a small group of well-connected friends, including Peter Kadzik, who is currently a top official at the US Justice Department serving as Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs.
The post-Benghazi dinner was attended by Podesta, Kadzik, superlobbyist Vincent Roberti and other well-placed Beltway fixtures. The first mention of personal contact between Podesta and Kadzik in the Wikileaks dump is in an Oct. 23, 2015 email sent out by Vincent Roberti, a lobbyist who is close to Podesta and his superlobbyist brother, Tony Podesta. In it, Roberti refers to a dinner reservation at Posto, a Washington D.C. restaurant. The dinner was set for 7:30 that evening, just one day after Clinton gave 11 hours of testimony to the Benghazi Committee.
Podesta and Kadzik met several months later for dinner at Podesta’s home, another email shows. Another email sent on May 5, 2015, Kadzik’s son asked Podesta for a job on the Clinton campaign.
Clearly, top-level officials at the Justice Department – some with direct responsibility for investigating Hillary Clinton – are close (very close, it seems) with Clinton campaign staffers.
But nothing to see here folks. This is how Washington operates. It was built on a swamp, you know.
Whatchya gonna do, drain it?
