Chaffetz: FBI Allegedly involved in "Quid Pro Quo" With Clinton
Late Friday night, The Hill reported that according to House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), there appears to be an allegation of “quid pro quo” between a top aide for Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) official. The allegation is contained in newly released documents from the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server during her tenure as the Secretary of State.
Chaffetz, who has stated he has not reviewed the documents first hand, comments that it is based on briefings the alleged “pay for play” incident occurred between State Department Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy and an unnamed FBI official over a classified email.
“In return for altering the classification, the possibility of additional slots for the FBI at missions overseas was discussed. This is a flashing red light of potential criminality,” said Chaffetz.
Chaffetz described himself as being “infuriated,” and that he believes that based on the information, Congress could hold four hearings over the matter.
