As a result of a separate investigation into Anthony Weiner’s possible sexting with an underage girl, the FBI has now in hand a warrant allowing it to comb through thousands of emails on Weiner’s computer, in search of emails that may relate Clinton aide Huma Abedin’s use of the personal server of Hillary Clinton over which government information was conveyed.
Yesterday the Associated Press reported that the United States Justice Department indicated they will provide any resources required to swiftly review the emails, numbering in the neighborhood of 650,000.
A letter presented to Congress from DOJ assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik states that the Justice Department “will continue to work closely with the FBI and together, dedicate all necessary resources and take appropriate steps as expeditiously as possible.”
What do we know about Mr. Kadzik? He has a long history of working together with the Clinton campaign’s chairman John Podesta, going all the way back to the Bill Clinton presidency. During the investigation of the Monica Lewinsky affair, Podesta was represented by Podesta. Podesta lobbied the Hillary Clinton team for a role in the 2008 presidential campaign. Last fall, when Republican congressmen requested a special counsel, in an effort to avoid conflicts of interest issues, for the investigation of Hillary’s emails, Kadzik denied it. Emails uncovered from WikiLeaks even show Kadzik meeting over dinner on more than one occasion, and that Kadzik had been invited to a birthday party for Podesta!
Republicans, as well as anyone who believes in honesty and fair play, must protest Peter Kadzik having any influential role in any investigation of the emails or actions of Hillary Clinton or her campaign aides. Kadzik is simply too close to those involved with the Clinton team, and could not possibly do his job in an unbiased manner. The conflicts of interest are too obvious.
