DFU COMMENT: Gee, since it was a criminal matter being investigated, not a security review, it would seem that this treaty obligates Russia to turn over any Hillary emails in its possession.
Formal Title Treaty between the Government of the United States of America and the Russian Federation on Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, signed at Moscow on June 17, 1999, and a related exchange of notes. Date Received from President 02/10/2000 106th Congress (1999-2000) Text of Treaty Document available as: TXT PDF Countries / Parties Russia Committee Reports Ex. Rept. 107-3 Latest Senate Action 12/19/2001 107th Congress (2001-2002) Resolution of advice and consent to ratification agreed to in Senate by Division Vote
Don’t forget that the Russians warned the US about the Tsarnaevs before the Boston Marathon bombing.
An agreement arranged by the Bill Clinton no less.
Did we ever formally ask the Russians for their copies?
That is rich!
doubt it...why would Obama or Kerry ask for them?
arranged by the Bill Clinton no less
I would say “PRICELESS” but we all know the current regime will do nothing about it.
What criminal matter?
investigation of the server and emails
As I’ve said elsewhere, I don’t believe the information on Hillary’s bathroom server was entitled to any legal protection by the United States government. It was not an officially authorized or secured communications system, and therefore not “official channels” for her communications. Therefore, hacking into it was technically not any diplomatic violation of “espionage.”
LOL. This is too rich.
Putin has to be loving this. He probably sits back and watches it while eating popcorn..and then shoots anyone who interrupts him
Not popcorn. Caviar. Big ass piles of it.
And then he shoots anyone who interrupts him.
I believe the FBI closed that down, didn't they?
They did. But they are now looking at perjury and foundation. If anyone has new evidence that she thought she destroyed forever, they should turn it in.
Any evidence the Russians had would have been obtained illegally and would, I assume, be inadmissible.
The Democrats and the media are 3 steps behind at least.
Remember, Giuliani and Christie are former prosecutors that have handled organized crime cases. They probably knew about this law and this whole scenario was scripted.
The Dems and MSM walked right into this each step of the way.
How many times will these guys fall into the “Trump screwed up” “Trump is through” “Trump is right?” routine.
Trump is Lucy with the football, and the Dems and MSM are Charlie Brown.
The media stepped right into the trap. All of the outrage, and he’s just asking Russia to abide by the treaty we have with them!
