FBI: No, We Will Not Turn Over Information About Secret Meetings Between Barack Obama and James Comey Because The Liberal Media Isn't Super-Interested In It

Oh -- the liberal media isn't interested in it, therefore, you can invoke part of the FOIA law that says you don't have to expedite a FOIA request.

So the liberal media gets to determine whether non-liberal media organizations are entitled to FOIA, huh? Swell.

The FBI states it will not expedite the release of documents about secret meetings between FBI Director James Comey and former President Barack Obama, according to a letter the bureau sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Such information is not "a matter of widespread and exceptional media interest in which there exists possible questions about the government’s integrity which affects public confidence," David Hardy, the section chief for the bureau's Record/Information Dissemination Section, told TheDCNF in a Feb. 26 letter.

TheDCNF, under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), requested records of all meetings between Comey and Obama and sought an "expedited process" as provided under the act when issues are of great interest to the media and the records address issues pertaining to government integrity. TheDCNF FOIA request was filed Feb. 16, 2018.

The issue prompting the FOIA request was the disclosure Comey held a secret Oval Office meeting with Obama on Jan. 5, 2017. Comey never divulged the meeting to Congress.

Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, former deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and former Vice President Joe Biden also attended the meeting.

This is the meeting that prompted Susan Rice to write an email to herself claiming Obama had told her to do everything "by the book" -- including concealing the existence of the probe from the soon-to-be Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the United States.

No, that doesn't raise questions about the integrity of the FBI at all.
