State official offered FBI ‘quid pro quo’ during Clinton email probe

 

Newly released FBI forms summarizing the Hillary Clinton email investigation reveal the State Department’s undersecretary of state attempted to persuade the FBI to change certain emails in Clinton’s private email server from classified to unclassified, during the agency’s probe into Clinton’s email usage while secretary of state. The form states that an unnamed individual was “contacted by Patrick Kennedy, undersecretary of state, who asked for his assistance in altering the email’s classification in exchange for a ‘quid pro quo.'” The unnamed individual “advised that, in exchange for making the email unclassified, [the State Department] would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.” The Washington Examiner reports the FBI said in a statement that no such “quid pro quo” exchange took place, and “the email in question remained classified at the ‘secret’ level.”
