FBI denies request to release Hillary Clinton emails because of “lack of public interest.”

The FBI has denied New York attorney Ty Clevenger’s request to obtain documents related to Hillary Clinton’s email probe.

Why did the FBI deny this request? The answer given by the FBI was a “lack of public interest.”

The Washington Times reports that after filing a FOIA request for HRC’s documents with the FBI, Clevenger received the following emailed response…

“You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject.”

Hillary Clinton’s case isn’t interesting enough to the public to justify releasing the FBI’s files on her, the bureau said this week in rejecting an open-records request by a lawyer seeking to have the former secretary of state punished for perjury.

Ty Clevenger, the lawyer, has been trying to get Mrs. Clinton and her personal lawyers disbarred for their handling of her official emails during her time as secretary of state. He’s met with resistance among lawyers, and now his request for information from the FBI’s files has been shot down.

“You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject,” FBI records management section chief David M. Hardy told Mr. Clevenger in a letter Monday.

“It is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA,” Mr. Hardy wrote.

Mrs. Clinton, is the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, former chief diplomat, former U.S. senator, and former first lady of both the U.S. and Arkansas.

Dear FBI, on behalf of Mr. Clevenger, please allow us to submit Exhibit A regarding the public’s interest in this and all future FOIA requests regarding Mrs. Clinton’s records…there are roughly 63mm people (and probably a couple of Democrats as well) who are very eager to learn anything you might have to disclose regarding Hillary’s alleged transgressions.

When Bill Clinton got in the White house, Hillary pulled in the FBI records of all her enemies, or people who might become enemies. It is called blackmail, because there is not one political appointee, or elected politician in Washington DC who does not have criminal acts they can be charged for. And she has the dirt. This is a case where if they wanted to get rid of her, they would have to arrange a car wreak, heart attack, or the kind. What is probably keeping that from happening is, as stupid as she is, she has criminal cunning,… Read more »

Explains a lot, including how she has avoided the heart attack route.

The Rothschilds personally offered her free 5-star hotel stays. That alone could be a sufficient answer to all questions.

I would assume that she has a lot of dirt on the FBI bosses. Paedophilia is the key to the downfall and public ‘hangings’ of many of the worlds elite.

because she’s part of the deep state and controlls/ controlled the military industrial complex’s very lucrative business so the good old boys can profit massively. FBIO and CIA both collude tiogether , to control the system, and reap megabucks..

Should read:

“Due to hard work our assets in the MSM, a lack of public knowledge of our real work and methods pervades the public consciousness. We therefore conclude that a request by a lawyer seeking to have the former secretary of state Clinton punished for perjury isn’t interesting enough to the public to justify releasing the FBI’s files on her.”

So it’s up to a Hillary sycophant in the FBI to decide, not the courts? :Would be interesting to see why a bureaucrat in the FBI is covering for her. Is that person dirty too?

I wonder then, how many petitions signed by the public got thrown in the wastepaper basket?

We need to be careful about the context of “public interest” as used in the FBI statement. I don’t think they are referring to personal, political or intellectual interest. Rather, they are concerned that the legal interest or prospective exposure has not been proven by the requester. There has to be strong justification for the FOIA request before the FBI can honor it. As Mr. Hardy said: “It is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA,”

Or… Does ‘lack of public interest’ here mean: the whole of the establishment is at risk of collapse/ wipe-out if we comply – hence ‘lack of public interest’ = ‘not in the interests of the USA Inc.’? Just trying to translate their forked-tongue language.

I wrote what I think of the FBI response to the request for Clinton e-mails on the post of the article I made on facebook this a.m.. Both criminal, appalling, and will destroy the FBI nationally and internationally..

Why everyone is so upset with the response from FBI. Whoever wrote this response was 100% correct. Interests of H.C. outweighs interests of American people, this is the reality
