Well here’s the article I got it from. Seem’s this obstruction of justice is burried in the inspector general’s report on Mcabe.
The call was on the investigation of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation during the Election. Justice official ADMITS the call took place.
Tucked inside the inspector general’s report on former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe was the story of an August 2016 phone call from a high-ranking Justice Department official who Mr. McCabe thought was trying to shut down the FBI’s investigation into the Clinton Foundation while Hillary Clinton was running for president.
Then the quote that I’ve learned about the call McCabe got
The official was “very pissed off” at the FBI, the report says, and demanded to know why the FBI was still pursuing the Clinton Foundation when the Justice Department considered the case dormant.
Normally I would say alleged call but then you have this:
In a footnote to the report, the inspector general says the Justice official agreed with the description of the call but objected to seeing that “the Bureau was trying to spin this conversation as some evidence of political interference, which was totally unfair.”
Had that been someone from The Trump Administration who made the call, AND admitted making the call, this story would be all over the leftwing media. BUT because it was the Obama Administration and Hillary not a peep about this part of the Inspector General’s report from them.
To me, the DOJ official (now retired) should be hauled in and asked who he was getting pressure on the Hillary investigation from.
