FBI ‘Reopens’ FOIA Case On Lynch-Clinton Tarmac Meeting After Getting Caught In Lie

Courtesy of ZeroHedge. View original post here.

Last October Jay Sekulow of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) received the following letter from the FBI regarding his FOIA request for any documents related to the now-infamous Clinton-Lynch tarmac meeting in June 2016.  The letter quite simply stated there were "no records responsive to your request."

Of course, since the DOJ has subsequently provided numerous documents which include email traffic with various FBI officials (see: FOIA Dump Reveals Collusion Between Lynch, FBI And Media To Bury Bill Clinton Meeting), we now know that the FBI's original response was either (i) just a simple reflection of their complete incompetence (best case) or (ii) an outright lie (worst case).

Alas, it seems as though the FBI has finally admitted in a new letter sent to Sekulow that maybe, just maybe, there are "records potentially responsive to your request" and, as such, they've 'reopened' the case to search for those records. 

"…your request has been reopened under the FOIPA number listed above as the FBI has determined records potentially responsive to your request may exist.  We are currently in the process of searching for any responsive material."

FBI Letter

 

Meanwhile, and for obvious reasons, the FBI's continued refusal to acknowledge basic facts about a FOIA case that have been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt by DOJ records prompted a scathing retort from Sekulow who posted the following to the ACLJ website earlier:

After being caught hiding the truth from the American people, the FBI has just “reopened” our FOIA case.

The ACLJ just received a letter from the FBI bureaucracy informing us that it has “reopened” our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request into the clandestine meeting between former Obama Attorney General Lynch and former President Clinton while the Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI were conducting a criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton.

The FBI’s letter – dated one week after we publicly excoriated the FBI for lying to us when the Comey-led FBI told us last October that it had “no” records responsive to our request – now states that “records potentially responsive to your request may exist.”

It is unbelievable that the FBI bureaucracy still only admits that some documents “may exist.”

We know they exist.

What else was the FBI hiding?

While we appreciate that the FBI has “reopened” the case file and is now “searching” for documents responsive to our duly submitted FOIA request from more than a year ago, it stretches the bounds of credulity to suggest that the FBI bureaucracy just discovered that “potentially responsive” records “may exist” on its own accord.

Sekulow also appeared on Fox News this morning to discuss the 'reopened' case:

Perhaps it's time to refile all of those FOIA requests related to the various Hillary Clinton investigations that were submitted under the Obama administration…who knows what treasures may have been 'overlooked' in the initial FBI/DOJ responses…
