Top State Department official Patrick Kennedy sought a “quid pro quo” with the FBI that would have allowed him to change the classification markings on Clinton’s emails.

Kennedy led a widely-mocked internal State Department investigation into the Clinton email scandal. Breitbart News reported that Kennedy exchanged emails with Clinton Foundation staff during his tenure working for Secretary Clinton.

Kennedy reportedly tried to change some of the classification markings on Clinton emails in the FBI’s possession.

The FBI possesses a backup data device that could contain the rest of Clinton’s missing emails, which were not factored into the case. The FBI has been challenged to release the contents of that data device.
