Wouldn't this Treaty Document Signed by Pres. William Clinton require Russia to give assistance in Criminal Investigations? We have been investigating Hillary's email deletion.

A Senate treaty document provides the text of the treaty as transmitted to the Senate, as well as the transmittal letter from the President, the submittal letter from the Secretary of State, and accompanying papers.

                         LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL

                              ----------                              

                                The White House, February 10, 2000.
To the Senate of the United States:
    With a view to receiving the advice and consent of the 
Senate to ratification, I transmit herewith the Treaty Between 
the United States of America and the Russian Federation on 
Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters, signed at Moscow 
on June 17, 1999. I transmit also, for the information of the 
Senate, a related exchange of notes and the report of the 
Department of State with respect to the Treaty.
    The Treaty is one of the series of modern mutual legal 
assistance treaties being negotiated by the United States in 
order to counter criminal activities more effectively. The 
Treaty should be an effective tool to assist in the prosecution 
of a wide variety of crimes, including terrorism, money 
laundering, organized crime and drug-trafficking offenses. The 
Treaty is self-executing.
    The Treaty provides for a broad range of cooperation in 
criminal matters. Mutual assistance available under the Treaty 
includes obtaining the testimony or statements of persons; 
providing documents, records and other items; serving 
documents; locating or identifying persons and items; executing 
requests for searches and seizures; transferring persons in 
custody for testimony or other purposes; locating and 
immobilizing assets for purposes of forfeiture, restitution, or 
collection of fines; and any other form of legal assistance not 
prohibited by the laws of the Requested Party.
    I recommend that the Senate give early and favorable 
consideration to the Treaty and give its advice and consent to 
ratification.

                                                William J. Clinton.
