Allegations of a quid pro quo between the FBI and State Department emerged Monday in documents released by the law enforcement agency as part of its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
According to the documents, which were based on interviews with FBI agents, a high-ranking State Department official allegedly sought to pressure the bureau into changing the classification of an email related to the Benghazi attack in exchange for agreeing to help place more FBI agents in places like Iraq, where they are restricted.
But there were starkly different descriptions of who hatched the alleged deal.
One FBI official suggested Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy offered to assist the bureau to place more agents in return for the change in classification. But another top agent suggested he was the one who first broached the idea.
