Hillary's Fixers -- Who Called Themselves, For Real, "The Shadow Government" -- Pressured FBI Not to Classify or to Declassify Documents Contained in Hillary's Emails

But Trump said the p-word.

Read Sexton's digest, but I have to quote some of the main story he links.

"IPS felt immense pressure to complete the review quickly and not label anything as classified," according to interview notes from a State Department official whose name wasn’t disclosed in the FBI summary.

....

The FBI summaries also indicated that "a powerful group of very high-ranking State officials," referred to as "The Shadow Government," met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss all things related to releasing or withholding e-mails that were on Clinton’s server, according to the interview notes.

The group included Kennedy and Jonathan Finer, who serves as current Secretary of State John Kerry’s chief of staff, according to the notes.

The Washington Examiner's Sarah Westwood has more on the State Department's cover-up of Clinton's illegal emails-- including, it is alleged, bringing in the Fixers who helped cover up the Lois Lerner affair.

Se lists the six ways the State Department joined in the cover-up-- here are a few.

One of the people brought in to work on Clinton's emails "was possibly involved in the Lois Lerner, Internal Revenue Service situation," referring to the tax agency's targeting of conservative nonprofit groups ahead of the 2012 election.

Multiple witnesses told the FBI they felt agency leadership circumvented normal procedures when preparing emails, particularly those mentioning Benghazi and Libya, for release to Congress and the public.

...

Some record-keeping officials said they felt "intimidated" each time they proposed upgrading and redacting part of an email because it was classified. Those officials described the "immense pressure" they felt to avoid classifying anything within the 296 Benghazi documents.

...

Clinton's legal team at first informed the State Department that it had prepared 14 banker boxes of printed emails for production to the government. However, when officials arrived at her lawyer's office to retrieve the emails, they found only 12 boxes.

"[O]fficials were unsure what happened to the other two boxes," the FBI wrote.

Quick, let's make her president. She's a level-headed, Wall-Street-Friendly corrupt pragmatist of the kind the corporate-aligned Establishment likes.

And she's probably grabbed several fewer pussies than Trump.
