An unnamed State Department staffer disclosed to the FBI that Hillary Clinton and her staff took lamps and furniture from the State Department to furnish Clinton’s D.C. residence, according to FBI documents.
The FBI document of this exchange is part of “The Vault,” which is a collection of documents providing evidence for federal investigators looking into Clinton’s private email server.
Most of the documents are testimonies provided to federal investigators in interviews the agents conducted with witnesses.
In one of the documents, an unnamed State Department official tells the FBI that “early in Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, she and her staff were observed removing lamps and furniture from the State Department, which were transported to her residence in Washington, D.C.”
The staffer did not know “whether these items were ever returned to the government upon Clinton’s departure from the State Department.”
The Clintons were accused of taking more than $200,000 worth of furnishings and other items from the Executive Mansion after they left the White House in 2001, PolitiFact reported. They eventually returned several items due to political pressure.
