FBI Given Evidence Of Clinton-Linked Libya Scheme; Instead Launched Trump-Russia Quagmire

9102

Recently made public FBI records reveal that the agency virtually ignored evidence from private GOP-backed sources about a scheme in which Hillary Clinton associates tried to exploit her position as Secretary of State in order to profit from the 2011 turmoil in Libya she helped to create, according to RealClearInvestigations.

The documents, provided to the FBI in June 2016 as the agency was kicking its Trump-Russia investigation into high gear, allege that Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal sent her “a series of detailed memos and reports about Libya,” which were intended as a “quid pro quo” which might help a post-Gaddafi Libya recover as much as $66 billion in offshore funds hidden by the slain strongman.

According to the private investigators funded by Judicial Watch: “Our evidence shows that Mr. Blumenthal was involved with a group of intelligence professionals seeking to repatriate asset[s] which were plundered and then exfiltrated by the [Gaddafi] family and hidden in various offshore localities.”

If successful, Blumenthal and associates “stood to gain a brokers’ cut of perhaps hundreds of millions of dollars.”

The private Libya inquiry leaves important issues unsettled. The documents do not include emails or other original source material to support the allegations within. While claiming to possess evidence that Blumenthal and his associates had contracts and offshore accounts to repatriate the money, the documents say “no concrete evidence” was found suggesting Clinton acted to support the effort.  

Yet if verified, the files might shed light on why Clinton kept her emails, tens of thousands of which have gone missing, out of normal government communication channels. –RealClearInvestigations

The documents, released as part of the FBI’s case files for the Clinton email investigation, code-named “Midyear Exam,” reveal that Blumenthal was deeply involved in the Libya affair with Clinton operative Cody Shearer. The two would later join forces to proffer anti-Trump talking points similar to the largely unproven Steele Dossier.

According to the report, “The FBI’s acquisition of the Libya files made it freshly aware of Blumenthal’s possible past motives – including personal financial gain – as he spurred an investigation meant to help defeat Donald Trump and elect Clinton.

What’s more, FBI agent Peter Strzok “plated an especially pivotal role in the bureau’s response to both sets of allegations.”

The heavily redacted files are part of a 428-page FBI document dump posted on FBI.gov in June, which can be downloaded here (relevant pages: 318-380). The documents are labeled by the FBI as having been received on June 6, 2016 – a month before the first of Comey’s two exonerations of Clinton and roughly seven weeks before the FBI opened its counterintelligence probe of the Trump campaign, relying on the Steele dossier. They are watermarked as having been declassified in December 2016, after the presidential election.

Describing the genesis of the Libya inquiry, FBI notes say its methodology was conceived by private entities with data recovery expertise and that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich referred them to the watchdog group Judicial Watch for financial support. Gingrich, a Republican, did not reply to a request for comment from RealClearInvestigations.

Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, confirmed that his organization funded the freelance investigative project, including research on the encrypted “dark web,” after the work was already underway — “and then we found a key Libya-linked document suggesting Mrs. Clinton’s server was hacked by the Russians.”

He said his group passed the probe’s information on to the FBI team led by Strzok, the agent in charge of the Clinton email inquiry. –RealClearInvestigations

While the FBI files don’t indicate how – if at all, the Libya allegations were pursued, it’s clear that nothing came of the ‘credible allegations’ provided to the same agency which launched the Trump-Russia probe based on a rumor seeded by a self-described member of the Clinton Foundation, Joseph Mifsud.

  1. And Who was minding the chicken coup? Another nifty little tidbit that just HAPPENED to go under the RADAR because it was REAL, it was WRONG and it was DEMOCRAT. You guys need to quit worshiping a false idol and start embracing the TRUTH. Hitlery is a criminal and her henchmen are dems in the house senate and at the time, white house. So far, everything the Dimocraps have listed would fit under the label of LIES, LIES and MORE LIES oh, and FICTION. God Bless Texas, God Bless America and God Bless President and First Lady Trump. hooyah

    • Amen.

      The problem is the current FBI Director, Christopher Wray is as corrupt as the previous two – Mueller and Comey. WHY did Trump pick him?

      He needs to be FIRED and Hillary and the entire group of criminals needs to be charged with crimes. Including Blumenthal, Comey, McCabe, Strzok, Lynch, Holder, Rosenstein, Ohr, the Clintons and even Beauregard Sessions III – who RAN the DoJ and covered it all up.

      • Man do I agree with that, he acts as if he was put there to protect the rats! Time for him to go, but timing has to be right when the indictments are concluded it’s time for a NE FRESH Start for the FBI if they ever want to be respected by the people.

    • Thanks, real conservatives, for providing some comic relief to distract us from the endless evils Trumpsky and Moscow Mitch are trying to foist on us. From the insulting (inviting the Taliban to Camp David on 9/11), to the corrupt (diverting US military planes to provide revenue for his Scottish resort), to the obsessive defensiveness of “Hurricanes Fell on Alabama”, our national well-being is attacked every day by these swamp rats.

      BTW if it were true (which I doubt) what exactly would be wrong with a group forming to track down $65 billion of money stolen from the people of Libya by Quaddafi in return for an investigative fee of less than 1% of that amount?

  2. IF the lower ranking FBI personnel would get it together and conduct some real investigations they could be busting their bosses – plenty of room for advancement. The ones who get this Bureaus back under contr4ol will be the ones who move up. Time waits on no one.

  3. Everything was being done (and still is) to protect the crooked lying britch and her cohorts. It is time to let the ball drop and call a spade a spade. The demented dimwit demoncrat obstructionists have done everything to bring down President Trump when their glaring escapades are being hidden by the crooks in charge.

  4. A vote for a demoncrat is a vote for more of the above. They are very evil, corrupted and self selving. There is not a safe, prosperous, or good future with them in charged.

  5. Just because the FBI maintains some kind of status as an official agency of the U.S. federal government ….does NOT mean that it is doing its job. In fact, the FBI has been entirely complicit in the multiple, massive and heinous crimes carried out by Hillary Rodham Clinton and her henchmen. Tragically enough, the case can be made that the FBI has been engaging in criminal conduct. It’s not going to end until those who are duly responsible are brought to task. It’s high time that such disreputable persons be called out on the carpet. Yesterday is not soon enough.

  6. Is this perhaps why they went after Carter Page first? He was a friend of Ambassador Steven’s and also worked in Foreign Affairs. Perhaps they were fishing to see how much Page knew about the Libya scandal and then frame him? Just a theory….

    • Page’s associations with the foreigners and the Trump campaign was just a toe in the doorway. They never had any ‘evidence’ on him, they just used his association as a reason to surveil him, which was a connection into the Trump campaign.

  7. This is standard operating procedure for Democrats. Invent something for all to focus on while concealing what they are clearly guilty of! These are our Tax-dollars at work, sneaky, conniving, lying their ass off Democrats. How much has it costs tax-payers so far on this collusion crusade that Democrats have been attempting to force down the throats of Americans to frame President Trump for the very thing(s) they (Democrats) are guilty of? 30 Million? The People of The United States should sue The Democratic National Committee for reimbursement!

    • I agree…corruption within the FBI, the CIA, and the NSA have taken their toll upon what once was called in this country to be a Democracy…”If the American people knew what we (CIA) have done, they would string us up from the nearest lamp post”…George H.W. Bush, Director CIA 1976-1977…”We lied, we cheated, we stole, we had entire training courses”…Mike Pampeo, Director CIA 2017-2018…”We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American Public believes is false”…William Casey, Director CIA 1981-1987…and then there were James Comey (FBI) a pawn of the Democrats…John Brennan (CIA) a Communist…and James Clapper (NSA) a Muslim…all members of the “deep state”…What more could the American people ask for?
      …Democracy?

  8. Hey! Hey! The Deep State Dims didn’t want to investigate Hillary Clinton or The Obama’s activities in Libya any way! They were too busy trying to use Russia to attack Trump to shoot his Campaign in the rump!~ Supposed Sec of State, Hillary Clinton didn’t care about our raped and murdered male Envoy there! While colluding with Libyan Jihadi terrorists you see, they overthrew the lesser of the evils Quadaffi! Then to make it good, Clinton’s operatives, while accusing President Trump, hoped to profit from their activity falsely accusing Republican bloggers like me of murder complicity! Wake up folks don’t you see, the Dims are really dangerous to our country!

  9. The current entire American system of fascism needs to be dumped wholesale & started over, meaning finish the stillborn original American Revolution, keep the Declaration of Independence & operate from it until the Brits & their ‘bank’ are removed then fix the Constitutions fatal flaws. See TIMOTHY GORDON’S book CATHOLIC REPUBLIC on why St. Thomas Aquinas & his ideas were used as the foundation of our country but were not credited & were used incorrectly & need to be revisited to do the restoration job once & for all.

  10. More nonsense. The article concedes that it wasn’t “evidence from private GOP-backed sources” that was tendered, but mere allegations from those patently political sources seeking to gain advantage against a political opponent. Insufficient under any circumstances to trigger a formal criminal investigation.

  11. First the Libya 9/11 attack was in 2012 not 2011.
    This shows that the Clintons put there own desires above the countries.
    Hillary’s in 2012 and Bill when he was Pres, did nothing when he got intel that there was going to be an attack that was go to involve the World Trade Center, he only cared about his affairs with women.

  12. This article was taken from ‘Real Clear Investigations’ website.
    I believe Judicial Watch has uncovered documentation that will connect Hitlery and the DNC to all of it. I can think of 66-billion reasons why she destroyed all those e-mails.
    The Libya mess was what started it all. There was corruption, and her allies were desperate to cover it up; to keep her eligible for her presidential run in 2016.
    Peter Strzok hid the information about the Russian hack to protect Hitlery. That’s the essence of the “how or if” that may never be known unless he confesses. Judicial Watch has sued to get documents, and soon the connection between “Sid Vicious” Blumenthal and the hacker “Guccifer” Libya stew will be exposed.
    Jonathan Winer, the “U.S. deputy assistant secretary of state for international law enforcement and former special envoy for Libya” was the one who gave the original ‘distraction’ documents created by the DNC and Hitlery operatives to the FBI, and Strzok and Comey took it away; then Brennen, then Clapper . . .
    Cody Shearer worked on the ‘second dossier’ with Blumenthal; which actually was written first, but had similarities to the Steele dossier that went public.

    It’s all smoke-n-mirrors. The intrigue and CIA & FBI ‘spookiness’ and back-alley dealings are all swamp activities. The demonrats only go to Washington to get rich. They never do anything but serve their own interests; unless they are threatened with losing their pedestal. Then they’ll get to work and give a few of their stupid followers a bone or pacifier so they’ll shut up.
    When they get caught with their pants down, they are treated differently than the rest of us, because they have wallowed in the muck with their ‘accusers’, so there’s always SOMEONE who will bail them out of the pickle jar.
