Judicial Watch's Fitton: Trump-Russia, Clinton Email Investigations 'Irredeemably Compromised'
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said that the FBI probe of Hillary Clinton's emails and Robert Mueller's investigation of President Trump have been "irredeemably compromised."
He said his group sued the feds to release documents pertaining to former Attorney General Loretta Lynch's tarmac meeting with President Clinton.
Fitton said it took six weeks after the ruling for the Justice Department to turn over 29 pages, some of which pertained to the bureau.
He said the documents showed the FBI was more concerned with a whistleblower in Phoenix who leaked the meeting to a local reporter than it was about any wrongdoing on the part of federal officials."They wanted to get him and punish him," Fitton said.
Tucker Carlson remarked that the exercise showed that the "agency charged with protecting" Americans was instead trying to punish those "who leak its own misdeeds."
"The leadership of the FBI was ruined by James Comey," Fitton said of the former director, adding that the Yonkers, N.Y. native oversaw a bureau that became increasingly partisan and politicized.
He said the ideological skew continued into the Trump era.
With Carlson previously citing the dismissal of Agent Peter Strzok, who reportedly disseminated anti-Trump and pro-Clinton viewpoints, including to a mistress via text messages, Fitton said both probes have become "irredeemably compromised."
