Federal investigators are struggling to get to the bottom of recently released FBI text messages between senior DOJ officials that suggested granting senior Clinton aide Huma Abedin “immunity,” raising new questions over how the bureau handled the immediate aftermath of Hillary’s botched email probe.
Congressional leaders disclosed even more anti-Trump text messages this week exchanged between senior FBI agent Peter Strzok and DOJ lawyer Lisa Page; showing the duo weighed granting longtime Clinton insider Huma Abedin “immunity” should she speak with a Grand Jury regarding the former Secretary of State’s mishandling of classified material.
“Talked with DoJ about HA interview,” Strzok texted in Dec 2016 -a full month after the FBI decided not to indict Clinton for her use of a private email server.
“Told them we had to interview, no immunity. They said they thought that would get counsel to the point of saying she’s either taking the 5th in the Gj or you need to give her immunity. I said that’s fine, please have discussions to get the decision to that point and I would run it up the chain,” he added.
According to the Daily Caller, the initials ‘HA’ were used in previous exchanges to refer to senior Clinton advisor Huma Abedin, while Gj likely refers to ‘grand jury.’
