WikiLeaks dropped a major bombshell – one that makes crystal clear that Washington is rigged for the politically powerful.
One of the emails written by top Clinton confidante John Podesta reveals that the Department of Justice investigation into Hillary’s illegal use of a private email server has been rigged from the very beginning.
We now know that the assistant attorney general, Peter Kadzik, had his son try to get a job on the Clinton campaign!
That would be bad, but it gets worse. Kadzik is the DOJ official Podesta had dinner with right after the Benghazi hearing.
That would also be bad, but it gets even worse!
Kadzik represented Podesta during the Monica Lewinsky investigation. And in the waning days of the Bill Clinton administration, Kadzik lobbied Podesta on behalf of Marc Rich, the fugitive who Bill Clinton controversially pardoned on his last day in office. That history is cited by Podesta in another email hacked from his Gmail account. In a Sept. 2008 email, which the Washington Free Beacon flagged last week, Podesta emailed an Obama campaign official to recommend Kadzik for a supportive role in the campaign. Podesta, who would later head up the Obama White House transition effort, wrote that Kadzik was a “fantastic lawyer” who “kept me out of jail.”

This level of blatant, open conflict of interest can’t be described as anything other than deliberate corruption. And this comes on the heels of even more classified emails being discovered:
The legal watchdogs at Judicial Watch just helped find a massive break in the Hillary Clinton criminal case. Hillary Clinton-insider Huma Abedin’s estranged husband Anthony Weiner has a perverted past, and his laptop had more than 650,000 emails which involve Team Clinton.
But what you didn’t know is that – according to a FOIA request from Judicial Watch – the 323 pages from Department of State documents show there are email exchanges which included classified information… at least three, and probably more!
In a press release, Judicial Watch states “three of the Clinton-Abedin email exchanges contained material ‘classified to protect national security.’”
This is tremendously damning information that comes on the heels of FBI Director James Comey’s announcement late last week that his agents had uncovered new emails related to the investigation of Clinton and her staff.
Why did it take a break in the Anthony Weiner case for this development, though? Why weren’t investigators doing the same job that a group like Judicial Watch was doing, unearthing these hidden emails?
“We’ve once again uncovered classified information in Hillary Clinton’s and Huma Abedin’s emails,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “It is frankly remarkable that the FBI and Justice Department are only now investigating Abedin’s connection to Clinton’s mishandling of classified information.”
