fbiUpdate: According to NBC’s Tom Winter, the FBI Vault twitter account “released all files pertaining to Donald Trump’s father, Fred Trump, a few weeks ago. That was response to FOIA” and adds that “the release of WJC FBI files was sent by the FOIA office under normal guidelines. A proper requested was made -Pete Williams rpts…. The account, @FBIRecordsVault started tweeting several days ago after not tweeting for a year. The first tweet…. about Fred Trump’s files.” And now, it is tweeting about the Clinton Foundation.

And then, the following choice piece: “the young federal prosecutor who ultimately decided not to charge Clinton or anyone else in “pardongate”… James Comey.”

Is it time for Comey to come clean?

In what appears to be an unexpected, and very surprising, disclosure, moments ago the FBI released 129 pages of heavily redacted records from its 15-year-old investigation into the Clinton Foundation and Bill Clinton’s 11th hour pardon of financier Marc Rich (less than a week before the election).

According to the FBI, “this initial release consists of material from the FBI’s files related to the William J. Clinton Foundation, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The bulk of these records come from a 2001 FBI investigation into the pardon of Marc Rich (1934-2013), aka Marcell David Reich, by President Clinton in 2001; it was closed in 2005. The material is heavily redacted due to personal privacy protections and grand jury secrecy rules.”

The commentariat is, in a word, shocked by what this symbolic, and impromptu release means, with some wondering if it is payback for Clinton’s blasting of the FBI.

Some are even calling it the first November surprise:

As the Washington Examiner notes, it was not immediately clear what prompted the FBI to publish the files Tuesday. However, the bureau posted the documents on the section of its website dedicated to records released through the Freedom of Information Act.

Is this the FBI engaging in a covert mutiny against the Clintons and the political affiliated Department of Justice? We hope to find out soon.
