According to a letter that I received today from Arkansas’s top bar prosecutor, Stark Ligon, his office is running into obstacles in its efforts to investigate my attorney misconduct complaint against Hillary Clinton for destroying emails and lying to Congress:
As part of our investigation, this office is in the process of attempting to obtain further documentation from various sources about the conduct you complain of by Ms. Clinton. The amount of materials is large. To some extent, our efforts to date in this area have met with various confidentiality policies and rules at different organizations that possess such information… For one, we do not yet possess any complete transcript of FBI Director Comey’s appearance before the congressional committee in July 2016, or any full FBI report on these matters. if one has been released since July 5, 2016. We also do not yet possess any full transcript of the October 22, 2015 hearing at which Ms. Clinton testified at length about the Benghazi matter.
It’s pretty easy to find video of the Comey and Clinton testimony on Google, as well as unofficial transcripts (see, e.g., here and here) produced by media organizations. Even so, I sent a letter to House Government Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte encouraging them to give Mr. Ligon everything he needs.
Last week I reported that most grievance committees are trying to delay or bury investigations into Mrs. Clinton and her lawyers. I disagree with some of the statements in today’s letter from Mr. Ligon, but I don’t have time to write about that. I’m not a trust fund kid, so I have to keep working the day job.
