A senior State Department official pressured the FBI to declassify one of Hillary Clinton's emails related to the Benghazi terror attack so he could use a loophole in the Freedom of Information Act to make sure it would never see the light of day, according to notes from an FBI interview released Monday.
State Department Undersecretary for Management Patrick Kennedy, the FBI file shows, discussed the possibility of approving the FBI's request for funding 'to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden.'
The FBI agent who interviewed him during the investigation into classified documents housed on Clinton's now-infamous secret email server called the proposal a 'quid pro quo.'
'Kennedy told [redacted] that the FBI's classification of the email in question caused problems for Kennedy and Kennedy wanted to classify the document as "B9",' The FBI report says. 'Kennedy further stated that the 'B9' classification would allow him to archive the document in the basement of DoS [Department of State] never to be seen again.'

Isn't this obstruction of justice? If true, this shows how deep the corruption really is. I hope some within the government will go with their conscience and revolt against this madness.
