It’s hard to get the job done when the person you are investigating won’t talk to you! The following video posted at YouTube is of State Department Inspector General Steve Linick testifying before the House Oversight Committee on July 7th, 2016, in which he revealed Hillary Clinton refused an interview request related to her email investigation.
This is part of the testimony as posted at The Gateway Pundit today:
Chaffetz: Were you able to interview Hillary Clinton?
Linick: we were not.
Chaffetz: Why not?
Linick: Well, we asked to interview secretary Clinton. We interviewed all of the secretaries. We looked at five Secretaries of State going back to Madeleine Albright and her, through counsel, she declined to meet with us.
Chaffetz: Did she indicate a reason why she would refuse to meet with the inspector general?
Linick: Her counsel informed our staff that she had — that all of the information about the e-mail was on the FAQ she published by her campaign.
The article at The Gateway Pundit further reports:
“I would have been stunned had I been asked to send an email to her at a personal server, private address. I would have declined to do so on security grounds and if she had sent one to me, I probably would have started an investigation,” added Krongard.
From what I have seen, I suspect that the emails are the least of Hillary Clinton’s worries about the Inspector General’s report. It is very obvious that laws were broken in Ms. Clinton‘s handling of classified information. It is also very obvious that an ordinary citizen would be in jail for similar crimes. I don’t necessarily wish Ms. Clinton jail time, but it would be nice to see her admit that she broke the law. If her email account was used to funnel money to the Clinton Foundation in return for political favors, she should be heavily fined and forced to return the money.
The Inspector General’s report is due out in January. It should be very interesting.
