FBI is REFUSING to release documents about SECRET meeting between Comey, Obama because YOU don’t need to know

(National SentinelNOversight: The FBI is refusing to speed up release of documents pertaining to secret meetings between fired FBI Director James Comey and former President Obama, according to a letter sent to The Daily Caller by the bureau.

That’s because the information is not “a matter of widespread and exceptional media interest in which there exists some possible questions about the government’s integrity which affects public confidence,” wrote David Hardy, the section chief for the FBI’s Record/Information Dissemination Section, in the Feb. 26 letter.

The news site requested the records under the Freedom of Information Act. Specifically, the news site wanted all records pertaining to all meetings between Obama and Comey and looked to obtain them under an “expedited precess” as provided for within the act when issues are of great importance or interest to the media.

The Daily Caller filed its FOIA request Feb. 16.

The FOIA request was prompted by Comey’s disclosure that he held a secret meeting with Obama in the Oval Office on Jan. 5, 2017, just weeks before President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration.

Comey never told Congress about that meeting in congresional testimony.

Susan Rice, Obama’s national security adviser, former Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and former Vice President Joe Biden also attended the meeting.

As further reported by Western Journal:

The National Archives revealed the existence of the meeting and released a declassified version of an email Rice sent to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary. Rice wrote an email to herself about the secret Jan. 5 meeting with Comey on Inauguration Day Jan. 20, 2017, as President Donald Trump was being sworn into office. The email suggested Comey may have misled Congress and was attempting to cover up the extent of his relationship with Obama.

Daily Caller editor-in-chief Christopher Bedford called the FBI’s refusal to hand over the requested documents “shameful.”

“The FBI just told us that Director James Comey potentially lying to Congress should not be of interest to us, that it doesn’t speak to their ‘integrity,’ and that it shouldn’t impact America’s ‘confidence’ in them,” he said, as reported by the Western Journal.

“They said this with a straight face. We disagree, we think the American people disagree, and we think it’s absolutely shameful.”

There’s too many people in the govt trying so hard to cover up all their misdeeds, that they don’t have time nor inclination to do anything else. Our govt is so corrupt, it’s appalling, and until Trump successfully drains the swamp, I suppose we can’t hope for much more than what we’re getting.

Time to put our gov’t back under our control.
