A university researcher and journalist are suing the FBI for slew of records relating to the FBI's activities leading to the election.


A journalist and a university researcher are suing the FBI for a slew of records relating to the law enforcement agency's activities in the months leading up to the presidential election.

The suit demands a wide range of FBI files and email having to do with HRC private (illegal) server and the Clinton Foundation. The suit also wants info on a variety people, topics and associates like Breitbart news, and emails that have anything to do with Bill Clinton, Huma, Weiner and a list of others.


The suit, filed Tuesday in federal court in Washington, demands a wide range of FBI files and emails pertaining to the agency's investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email server and its inquiries into the Clinton Foundation. The lawsuit also demands information on a variety of people, entities and topics associated with the presidential campaign such as Breitbart News, Breitbart chairman Steve Bannon (who has been picked to serve as a top White House adviser to President-elect Donald Trump) and the "alt-right."

The suit also seeks all FBI emails mentioning Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, former Clinton campaign vice chair Huma Abedin, Abedin's estranged husband Anthony Weiner, Trump, former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, Trump advisers Corey Lewandowski, Roger Stone and Kellyanne Conway, CNN commentator Jeffrey Lord, Fox News host Sean Hannity, or Fox News anchor Bret Baier, among others.


Usually there is 20 day limit to respond to FOIA. But this is a hurry up situation, so a demand for expedited response was also served apparently becasue if the public and media interest in the FBI's actions before the election.


Vice News reporter Jason Leopold and Harvard/MIT researcher Ryan Shapiro submitted the request on December 2. Normally, agencies are entitled to at least 20 business days to respond to a FOIA request before a suit is filed. However, the case filed Tuesday claims the FBI failed to respond to a demand for expedited processing of their request, apparently on grounds of the public and media interest in the FBI's pre-election actions.

I guess this is going to be like a giant game of ping pong. We get to watch the ball bounce back and forth between CIA and FBI. I wonder though what their intention is though since they requested such an extensive list?

Sounds like a huge net is being cast with the hope of finding a silver bullet. We will see.

So someone other then Judaical Watch is using Judaical Watch tactics to go after someone/thing that is not Clinton related is refreshing to say the least.

Yeah not going to happen!

From your post.

Jason Leopold and Ryan Shapiro don't have the clearance to see Hillary's files and e-mails. That is why the charges against her should still be pursued.

oh yeah, this is going to end up like the recount fiasco where they get a lot of stuff that makes Hillary look bad and then they suddenly downplay their request and what the results of it are.of course the MSM will accommodate them by dropping the story and never mentioning it again.
