FBI Denies FOIA Request for Hillary Documents Due to “Lack of Public Interest”

After Ty Clevenger, a Texas attorney living in New York, filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for documents pertaining to Hillary’s illegal handling of emails with classified information, the FBI denied the request, saying that he failed to demonstrate that the public interest in those documents outweighs the personal privacy interests of Hillary.

As reported by the Times, the FBI denied my FOIA request for records related to the Clinton email investigation because it decided — and I’m not making this up — that the email scandal is not a matter of public interest. Actually, the FBI first told me that back on August 8, 2017, so I sent them a response on August 12, 2017:

Frankly, I am stunned that I should have to explain why my request pertains to a matter of public interest. At the time of the perjury referral, Mrs. Clinton was the Democratic nominee for President of the United States, a former U.S. Secretary of State, and a former U.S. Senator. As one would expect, the referral made national news.

I have enclosed a copy of a July 11, 2017 Washington Post article titled “Congressmen ask U.S. Attorney’s Office to investigate Clinton for perjury.” One need only Google Chaffetz+referral+Clinton and a string of articles appears. Clearly, my request pertains to a matter of public interest.

As I wrote at the time, I seriously considered writing that letter in crayon. In retrospect, I should have. This morning I received a letter from the same FBI flunky informing me that the feds still did not consider it a matter of public interest. I wonder how much practice it took to get that stupid.

Meanwhile, Hillary’s hordes are calling me names and gloating because they think that I have been defeated and that evidence of Hillary’s guilt will never see the light of day. Obviously they don’t know me very well.
