While the Golden Globe Hollywood liberals are busy making Trump jokes and the media is obessed with the “Russia hack,” more Hillary Clinton e-mails have been released.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation on Friday afternoon, quietly released nearly 300 pages of records from its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server on Sunday night.
Wikileaks sent out a tweet drawing attention to the release about an hour ago, while most of America was likely watching the NFL Wildcard Playoffs or preparing to watch Jimmy Fallon host the 74th Annual Golden Globes Awards.

So far, few media outlets have picked up on the new release, found at the FBI’s Vault website where it provides information about high profile Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) releases. Wikileaks says the Vault was last updated on January 8 at 22:37 p.m. This is the fifth such release related to Clinton by the Vault. They have not made an official announcement on their website. However, the documents were not there as of Saturday.
The latest release contains information regarding computer hardware collected from Clinton’s legal team as the lengthy investigation unfolded. At first, Clinton was unwilling to surrender her private server, but hacked emails appear to show her team advised her to let the FBI take control of the materials.

Additional materials released on Sunday include email exchanges between FBI officials prior to of the official opening of the investigation. Some emails also included arguments between State Department personnel and law enforcement officials, along with members of other government agencies. The fights mostly appear to center on whether a document contains personal or classified information.
Requests to the Department of Justice and FBI spokespersons were not answered by press time.
