It just got a whole lot worse for Hillary Clinton as we’re now learning that President Barack Obama’s administration made a deal with Hillary Clinton to destroy laptops after the FBI criminal investigation.
The laptop, owned by Hillary’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and ex-campaign staffer Heather Samuelson had critical information that the American public deserved to see.. But those laptops were destroyed.
The deal was cut less than a month after the FBI announced they wouldn’t be charging Hillary with a crime, and two months after Obama officially endorsed her for President.
This is a coverup!
Immunity deals for two top Hillary Clinton aides included a side arrangement obliging the FBI to destroy their laptops after reviewing the devices, House Judiciary Committee sources told Fox News on Monday.
Sources said the arrangement with former Clinton chief of staff Cheryl Mills and ex-campaign staffer Heather Samuelson also limited the search to no later than Jan. 31, 2015. This meant investigators could not review documents for the period after the email server became public — in turn preventing the bureau from discovering if there was any evidence of obstruction of justice, sources said.
The Republican-led House Judiciary Committee fired off a letter Monday to Attorney General Loretta Lynch asking why the DOJ and FBI agreed to the restrictive terms, including that the FBI would destroy the laptops after finishing the search.
“Like many things about this case, these new materials raise more questions than answers,” Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., wrote, in the letter obtained by Fox News.
“Doesn’t the willingness of Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson to have their laptops destroyed by the FBI contradict their claim that the laptops could have been withheld because they contained non-relevant, privileged information? If so, doesn’t that undermine the claim that the side agreements were necessary?” Goodlatte asks.
The immunity deals for Mills and Samuelson, made as part of the FBI’s probe into Clinton’s use of a private email server when she served as secretary of state, apparently included a series of “side agreements” that were negotiated by Samuelson and Mills’ attorney Beth Wilkinson.
The side agreements were agreed to on June 10, less than a month before FBI Director James Comey announced that the agency would not recommend charges against Clinton or her staff.

Hill staffers involved with the investigation aren’t happy, as the deal essentially granted immunity to Samuelson and Mills for anything else that may have been on those laptops. It was a step to stop the investigation dead in it’s tracks, before the truth could be known.
