Several sources, reports Hillary Clinton emails show evidence of “quid pro quo,.”
For the most part, the term is used in a legal sense, offering goods for bribery; such as the car dealer who offered a judge a Mercedes if he let the dealers son off on a charge of vehicular homicide.
In this case, briefly quoting the FOX News report linked above:
FBI interview summaries and notes, provided late Friday to the House Government Oversight and Intelligence Committees, contain allegations of a “quid pro quo” between a senior State Department executive and FBI agents during the Hillary Clinton email investigation, two congressional sources told Fox News.
In context, State Department offiicals offered the FBI something of value to FBI agents during the Clinton “investigation.”
Illegal? We have no proof, but likely.
In any event, neither officials nor flunkies at any government department have any business offering a Quid Pro Quo to agents of any law enforcement agency.
If true, the act reeks of corruption. The same corruption that resulted in our Secretary of State signing a gun control treaty that is unconstitutional.
So that is something to keep an eye on, and for a full investigation to be made of when we get a President.
