Failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton never wanted to hear about those emails again … but looks like she’s not getting her wish.
After President Donald Trump ordered the declassification of documents related to the Trump-Russa hoax and Clinton’s email scandal, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo suggested Friday that Hillary Clinton emails will be released before the election, reports The Hill.
Get it out
By now, there is little doubt the 2016 election was ripe with corruption … just not in the way Democrats want us to think. We already know about the FISA warrants and the baseless Trump-Russia collusion allegations that led to the Mueller investigation.
Most recently, it came to light that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may have been actually behind the entire probe, thanks to Brennan’s internal notes which were just declassified. All of that is supposed to be investigated in the Durham probe, which we will get to in just a minute.
Now, just weeks before the election, President Trump wants the American people to know how corrupt everything about 2016 really was.
I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions! https://t.co/GgnHh9GOiq

The president called out Pompeo specifically on Thursday over Clinton’s emails. “She said she had 33,000 e-mails. They’re in the State Department, but Mike Pompeo is unable to get them out, which is very sad actually. I’m — I’m not happy about him for that, that reason. He was unable to get — I don’t know why. You’re running the State Department and you get them out. But they’re in the State Department.”
As such, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo confirmed that he is working on declassifying Clinton emails, though it’s not clear which ones. “We’ve got the emails, we’re getting them out,” Pompeo said on Friday. “We’re going to get all this information out so the American people can see it.” He continued:
“You’ll remember there was classified information on a private server. It should have never been there. Hillary Clinton should never have done that. It was unacceptable behavior. It’s not the kind of thing that leaders do. They don’t put that kind of information out. And you can see, whether it’s Russia or China or Iran or the North Koreans who want to get their hands on this kind of information, classified information needs to stay in the right places. Secretary Clinton, when she was here at the State Department, did not do that.”
Asked whether the emails will be released before the election, Pompeo replied, “We’re doing it as fast as we can. I certainly think there’ll be more to see before the election.”
The be-all, end-all that has been dangled in front of Republican voters for months has been the Durham probe. However, according to an anonymously-source report from Axios on Friday, Barr is already informing top Republicans that the report will NOT be out before the election.
The fear now is that if Trump loses the election, the Durham probe will get buried, and the American people will never learn the truth about what really happened.
Even if the report were released, though, it would potentially only include a slap on the wrist for the parties many conservatives believe should be behind bars. According to reports, Durham is already releasing classified documents to Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe to turn over to Congress — something that is unlikely if those documents were going to be used to prosecute anyone.
