The Washington Times reported this yesterday: “Hillary Clinton’s case isn’t interesting enough to the public to justify releasing the FBI’s files on her, the bureau said this week in rejecting an open-records request by a lawyer seeking to have the former secretary of state punished for perjury.” This struck me as a very strange statement by the FBI — “isn’t interesting enough” — since when does the FBI consider the public’s interest when it decides to reject an open-records request. I checked the FBI website, and looked at the tab that said “What we Investigate”. Public Corruption was front and center and if you scroll down, the FBI listed 8 cases under “Public Corruption News”… of the 8 listed, not one was familiar to me…(and believe me, I read a lot of public corruption news articles) yet, FBI records management section chief, David M. Hardey in denying the FOIA request stated, “It is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA.” Very strange that he thinks the “public” has no interest in how Hillary handled her emails while Secretary of State, yet had press releases on the 8 listed. I’m very surprised to learn that government transparency is not “interesting enough” to justify releasing the FBI’s files on her. Maybe Hillary will tell us what happened when the FBI investigated her in her new book What Happened instead of blaming everyone but herself.
As your children leave for college, consider the differences in how colleges educate our young: Berkeley and University of Tampa. Even before going to college, parents must know what is being taught in their schools.
Is this our future: Vandals behead Christopher Columbus statue in Westchester. Mayor de Blasio did not help the situation when he said he would have a commission review New York’s statutes., albeit he is trying to walk that back a bit. The NY Post editorial calls him out on his self-inflicted problem.
