The timing of this FOIA release is a bit curious: The Marc Rich pardon bribe

Recall, WJC was bribed into pardoning Marc Rich on his last day in office in Jan 2001, with Eric Holder the bag man.  There’s no other explanation for it, I doubt even Vox could come up with an exculpatory explanation.  No one got charged of course, though there was an investigation.   Yesterday, by some coincidence with respect to all else that is going on, the FBI responded to some FOIA requests for the Marc Rich background docs.

The timing is hokier than hell of course, but the bad karma here was spun up from the pardon itself and the Clintons own that, have only themselves to blame.
