FBI suddenly releases docs related to Bill Clinton’s corruption probe from 2001 -Team Hillary not pleased

While possible motivations will be debated for a long time to come, a sudden and surprising shift from the FBI is turning the 2016 presidential election on its ear.

Following FBI Director James Comey’s bombshell announcement Friday that additional Hillary Clinton-related emails were discovered — on perv Anthony Weiner’s laptop, nonetheless! — the bureau made an equally surprising move Tuesday regarding former President Bill Clinton.

With little explanation, other than saying they were responding to a Freedom Of Information Act request, the FBI on Tuesday released documents from a 2001 investigation of the Clinton Foundation centering on Bill Clinton’s controversial 2001 pardon of financier Marc Rich on his last day in the White House, the Daily Mail reported.

And while the “Public Corruption Unit” case was closed without any charges being filed, the dump isn’t going to help dispel perceptions of corruption swirling around Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations.

More from the Daily Mail on the “embarrassing” revelations:

The FBI on Monday released 129 pages of documents related to former president Bill Clinton’s lame-duck pardon of a fugitive financier whose family contributed $450,000 to help build his presidential library and millions more to other Democratic Party causes.

Rich’s wife Denise also contributed $100,000 to Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senate campaign as the first family prepared to clear out of the White House.


Rich, who passed away in 2013, was charged with racketeering, tax evasion, wire fraud, and illegally trading oil with Iran during the 1979 hostage crisis.

Interestingly, Comey was the federal prosecutor who headed up the investigation into the Rich pardon, which he called “a huge misjudgment.”

Team Hillary’s reaction showed they were not too pleased with Tuesday’s development.

Clinton campaign press secretary Brian Fallon posted a response on social media asking if the FBI will be “posting docs on Trump’s housing discrimination in ’70s?”
