(stating: “It bears some inking atthe top feves ofthe Justice Department andthe FBI abut veethsr there is some way to mitigate the suspicion [that politcal meddling wil squelch an indletment} by making more information public than is the norm.” as well as ‘ting: “There's no indication that Justice has contemplated [appointing a special counsel”) HRC-958 Director Comey May 17,2016 Page} of 8 The Justice Department has 2 mechanism in place to deal with such conflicts, namely, appointing a Special Counsel from outside of the Department, but the Attorney General has not exercised it. The Special Counsel regulations are supposed to help ensure fair and impartial investigations in the face of conflicts, although the use of a Special Counsel can present its own issues. According to the regulations: ‘The Attorney General, or in cases in which the Attomey General is recused, the Acting Attorney General, will appoint a Special Counsel when he or she determines that criminal investigation of a person or matter is warranted and- (a) That investigation or prosecution of that person or matter by a United States Attorney’s Office or litigating Division of the Department of Justice would present a conflict of interest for the Department or other . extraordinary circumstances; and (b) That under the circumstances, it would be in the public interest to appoint an outside Special Counsel to assume responsibility for the matter. According to the regulations, there are three conditions for appointing a Special Counsel: 1) the Attorney General decides an investigation is warranted; 2) the Justice Department has a conflict of interest or there are other extraordinary citcumstances; and 3) the public interest is served. Based upon the available facts and cirournstances, ell of those conditions appear to have been met here. This is not just an academic issue about conflicts of interest; itis possible that the Justice Department might be failing to provide the FBI with all the resources it needs for this investigation and might be improperly limiting the investigation’s scope. You recently testified before Congress thet you are “very close personally to that investigation to ensure that [the FBI has] all the resources [it] need[s], including people and technology.”* But, to the best of my knowledge, the Justice Department has made no similar commitment. The Department refused for months to confirm to the Committee that an investigation was underway at all, and it still refuses officially to confirm the scope of the investigation or whether it has provided the necessary Department resources for the FBI to properly address all the relevant legal issues. Information in the public domain raises serious questions about whether the Department has done so. For example, itis unclear whether the Justice Department has empaneled a federal grand jury in order to issue subpoenas, so that the FBI can gather all of the televant information. Asa recent article in the Washington Post noted, “there is no indication that prosecutors have convened a grand < 28 CER. § 600.1. * Encryption Security and Privacy: Hearing Before the House Committee on the Judiciary, 114% Cong. (2016). HRC-959 Director Comey ‘May 17, 2016 Page of 8 Jury in the email investigation to subpoena testimony or documents|,J" Given the public reports of the resources and time being devoted to the investigation by the FBI, this appears highly unusual Moreover, Atlomey General Lynch's public statements seem to imply ehat the investigation is being limited to an extremely narrow scope, as she only acknowledges that the investigation is evaluating the issues relating to Secretary Clinton’s and her subordinates’ potential mishandling of classified information.’ In a recent interview, Attomey General Lynch described the investigation as follows: “We're looking at whether or not classified information was handled in a particular way, in an appropriate way." At her recent appearance before the Committee, Senator Thom Tillis asked if the Justice Department had analyzed issues surrounding the joint income President and Secretary Clinton received from foreign governments for speeches President Clinton made, an issue raised by some of the released emails, One of the Clintons’ joint tax returns implicated in this and related public corruption issues was prepared by the law firm of Hogan & Hartson while the Attomey General was a partner at the firm. In response, the Attorney General seemed unaware of the Constitutional issue raised by Senator Tillis and testified that “the matter that has been under discussion both in this and other proceedings has been the Department’s review of how the State Department handled classified information.”!" A recent news report also included the assertion by anonymous “U.S. officials” that the investigation is solely focused on the handling of classified information and has not included any other legal issues stemming from the server arrangement or information revealed from the retrieved emails." © Adam Goldman, Justice Dept.

"Ff accurate, this statement by a U.S. official about the full scope ofthe investigation is additionally iroublng in ight of the fact that an FBI official recently fled a swom declaration in a FOLA case regarding records relating to the investigation stating that *fbleyond Director Comey's acknowledgment of the seourity referral from the Inspectors General ofthe Intelligence Community and the Department of Stale, the FBI hes not and cannot publicly ecknowledge the specific scope, focus o potontial argos of any such investigation without adversely affecting the investigation.” See Decl. of David M, Hardy, Leopold v. Dep't of Justice, 15-cv-2117 (DDC), ECF No, 9-1 at 7. Lo that lawsuit, the FBI officiel declared under ‘penalty of perjury thatthe FBI was withholding matrilsithad recovered from the serve, and other records eating tothe “vestigation, eeause they ae exempt under FOIA Exemption 7(A). He stated that those records and other FBI records relating tothe investigation were “compiled far law enforcement purposes” and that their disclosure cculé reasonably be expected fo interfere wit “a pending or prospective law enforcement proceeding” — Exemption 7(A)'s prerequisites. Kat 7-10. He similarly sated that te records “are potential evidence in the FBI's vestigation,” that disclosing “ovidenoe [or] potential evidence [} while the investigation is active [] could undermine the pending investigation by prematurely HRC-970 Director Comey May 17, 2016 Page 5 of 8 Perhaps the most troubling report is the Washington Post’s recent article about the FBI's interview of Cheryl Mills." That article stated that Justice Department officials had made an agreement with Ms. Mills’ attorney that it “Would be off limits” for the FBI to ask her questions during the interview about her role in deciding which of the emails on Secretary Clinton's server would be deleted and which would be turned over to the State Department.'* The article further stated that the PBL agents nonetheless asked about this important issue, that Ms. Mills walked out of the interview briefly in response, and that the Justice Department prosecutors were “taken aback thet their FBI colleagues” had asked the question.'? Ms. Mills reportedly never answered the FBI's questions on this issue.” Secretary Clinton's potential mishandling of classified information is undoubtedly important and must be fully investigated. However, it would be disturbing if the Justice Department has narrowed the investigation to prevent the FBI from also investigating the other important issues raised by this extraordinary situation. For example, press reports have indicated that the FBI has been able to recover emails deleted from Secretary Clinton's private server.'” If federal records on the private server were hidden or destroyed, then there may have been a violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2071, which prohibits concealing or destroying such federal records. If any of the deleted emails were responsive to Congressional inguiries or to agency inquiries, such as ones from the State Department Inspector General, then there may have been violations of 18 U.S.C. §§ [505 and 1519, respectively. Similarly, the content of many of the released emails implicates Constitutional issues and public corruption laws, by raising issues relating to joint income from paid speeches given by President Clinton for foreign government entities, as well as the blurring of the lines between the actions taken on behalf of the State Department, the Clinton Foundation, and Teneo, & private firm founded by a former counselor to President Clinton. Despite this range of relevant legal issues, which extend far beyond the national secutity issues raised by the potential mishandling of classified information, public reports ouly indicate that the Justice Department has assigned personnel from its National Security Division to supervise the FBI's investigation,'* with another report claiming the U.S. Attorney’s Office from the Eastern District of Virginia is also involved.”” There is no indication that the Justice Department has assigned prosecutors from its Public Integrity Section or prosecutors with expertise in the unlawful concealment or deletion seveg sp dus elt indice oe fhe on fe mein sn ‘Sete stn coma tiie ede encon ser pes eine” 43-10 (ost So) eat Epc yd hy oes nonce Bf rgd a Eee Wasincon Py Mah or ay new Cay, fonds omc ern Str he as om i uct Nine ay 6 oe ° fd. at Rs aah reshape aor Pl Ds mas Fr tli Ct’ er CBS NEW, Sep mo 5 Supra n. 6 (“The email investigation is being conducted by FBI counterintelligence agents and supervised by the Justice Denes ta Soy Bro °° Matt Zopotsky, Officials: Scant Evidence that Clinton Had Malicious intent in Handling of Emails, THE WASHINGTON pownnin Sie HRC-971 Director Comey May (7, 2016 Page 6 of 8 of federal records. Indeed, when Attomey General Lynch was specifically asked if any prosecutors from the Department’s Public Integrity Section are working on the case, she refirsed to answer.” In previous investigations, the Department of Justice has been willing to state which of its divisions and sections had attorneys working on a particular case.”! Because there is no indication that Justice Department has provided any resources relating to the other legal issues surrounding Secretary Clinton’s private email server, and in light of the Attorney General's statements about the scope of the investigation, as well as the report claiming the Justice Department made an agreement with Ms. Mills attomey to preclude the FBI from asking her about the sorting and deletion of email, it appears that the Tustice Department might be improperly limiting the scope of the FBI’s investigation, Viewed within the context of the Department's appearance of a conflict of interest in this case, this raises the question of whether a Special Counsel is in fact needed. One news report has even gone so far as to claim, without naming its sourees, that FBI “agents have been spreading the word, largely through associates in the private scctor, that their boss is get stonewalled [by Obama political appointees}, daspits uncovering compelling evidence that Clinton broke the law.” The article further elsimed that “FBT sources say (Director Comey] has no backing from President Obama and Attomey General Loretta Lynch to recommend charges against the former sceretary[.]"2* While this report may or may «st be accurate, it is understandable that the public's. confidence in the integrity and independence of any prosecutorial decision is in question, given the appearance of a conflict of interest by the political appointees in charge of that process, This is, precisely the type of situation a Special Counsel appointment is designed to address, ‘You have experience in these issues not only from the perspective of the FBI, but also from the perspective of the Justice Department, and specifically in the context of investigations of senior administration officials, While you were serving as the Deputy Adomey General during the George W. Bush administration, Attorney General Ashcroft recused himself from the investigation regarding. the Valerie Plame leak, duc to the appearance of a conflict of interest he had as a result of past professional associations with one of the suspects, which then made you the Acting Attomey General for that case. In that case, there was substantial public concern about whether an investigation of administration officials that was being conducted under the oversight of the administration's political appointees would be fair and impartial. Upon being designated Acting Attorney General, you removed the case from the usual Justice Department chain of command and appointed a special prosecutor, 2 Supra n. 8.
