Citing standard anonymous sources, the Washington Post reported Thursday that a Justice Department “inquiry” — not quite as trespassing as investigation — of Hillary Clinton has effectively ended with no finding of criminal wrongdoing.
Never has an opening sentence exhibited more bias: “A Justice Department inquiry launched more than two years ago to mollify conservatives clamoring for more investigations of Hillary Clinton has effectively ended with no tangible results, and current and former law enforcement officials said they never expected the effort to produce much of anything.”
According to the newspaper, current and former officials said that U.S. Attorney John Huber, who was tapped by then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, has largely finished a look at possible corruption at the Clinton Foundation and the Obama-era sale of a uranium mining company, Uranium One, during Clinton’s time as secretary of state.
Through the deal, Russia acquired about 20 percent of uranium production capacity in the U.S. Investors reportedly donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.
“We didn’t expect much of it, and neither did he,” said a source said to be familiar with the matter. “And as time went on, a lot of people just forgot about it.”
Attorney General Bill Barr said in an interview in May 2019 that Huber was “winding down” his investigation.
“The other issues he’s been working on relate to Hillary Clinton. Those are winding down and hopefully, we’ll be in a position to bring those to fruition,” he told CBS News.
There may be an argument to be made that the Deep State looks out for its own, as the instances were people are held accountable in Washington are few and far between.
Count Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, among the skeptics.
Taking to Twitter, he said it was of no surprise that a “non investigation results in non prosecutions.”
