The White House on Tuesday denied there was any political interference in the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server after newly leaked emails showed discussions between a campaign aide and Department of Justice (DOJ) officials.
“Both the attorney general and the FBI director have made clear that the investigation of Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server was conducted without regard to partisan politics,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters aboard Air Force One.
Earnest noted Attorney General Loretta Lynch and FBI Director James Comey made similar assertions while testifying to Congress under oath.
“They indicated that there was no influence from political actors on the investigation,” he said. “I’d rely on the public statements of individuals who are responsible to affirm the independence of that investigation.”
EXCLUSIVE: American arms dealer Marc Turi, in his first television interview since criminal charges against him were dropped, told Fox News that the Obama administration -- with the cooperation of Hillary Clinton’s State Department -- tried and failed to make him the scapegoat for a 2011 covert weapons program to arm Libyan rebels that spun out of control.
“I would say, 100 percent, I was victimized…to somehow discredit me, to throw me under the bus, to do whatever it took to protect their next presidential candidate,” he told Fox News chief intelligence correspondent Catherine Herridge.
