With the election just a week away, the FBI has released a tranche of 15-year-old documents dealing with Bill Clinton’s pardon of a fugitive financier—a move that the bureau made without explanation and that only adds to the confusion surrounding its controversial role in the presidential contest.

While they offer some tantalizing tidbits, the documents are heavily redacted and they don’t seem to offer any substantial new information about the criminal inquiry launched by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York after Clinton pardoned Marc Rich, who was living overseas to escape charges related to exporting goods to Iran (which even now remains under a U.S. embargo to some extent). His wife, Denise Rich, a singer-songwriter, was a major donor to the Clintons.

The timing of the document dump—just seven days before the election—is giving fodder to critics of FBI Director James Comey. While the Clinton campaign has not released a formal statement about these documents from the winter of 2001, Brian Fallon, a Clinton spokesman tweeted: "Absent a FOIA litigation deadline, this is odd. Will FBI be posting docs on Trump's housing discrimination in '70s?”

Am always worrying about Kurt Eichenwald! He's been quiet for a day, unlike him...

I worry about him because he is just so damn brave! If you read his twitter account you'll know what I mean. Has anyone seen him on TV Today?

But then again he complains often about people trying to hack his twitter account, so maybe that's what it is! Or maybe he's just taking a day off.


Just wondering...
