People who were eagerly anticipating the Clinton emails are going to be apoplectic to learn that the DOJ may possibly have deleted them. Jay Sekulow, attorney for the President, and chief counsel at the American Center for Law & Justice received the Freedom of Information request from the Justice department.
The ACLJ obtained the immunity agreements from Heather Samuelson and Cheryl Mills. According to the information the ACLJ received the FBI could review the emails on the condition that both Clinton lawyers receive immunity from prosecution under the espionage act and the FBI was to delete the contents of the computers after the investigation was finalized.
The two Clinton lawyers were granted immunity for the following felony statutes 18 U.S.C. § 793(e), 18 U.S.C. § 1924, 18 U.S.C. § 2071.
18 U.S.C. § 793(e) "Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information"
18 U.S.C. § 1924 "Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material"
18 U.S.C. § 2071 "Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally"
As an interesting Footnote, we should point out that both Department of Justice officials granting immunity have had their names redacted from the FOIA request.
