But Her Emails.....

Judicial Watch: FBI Admits Hillary Clinton Emails Found in Obama White House

Hillary's supporters love to say that people refused to vote for her because of her using her private email server like it wasn't a serious breach of governmental law. For some reason they don't see any problem with classified information being sent through unregulated channels. The Huber IG report stated that at least one foreign country hacked her server. I'd think that people would have a problem with that.

Judicial Watch announced today that a senior FBI official admitted, in writing and under oath, that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President. The FBI also admitted nearly 49,000 Clinton server emails were reviewed as result of a search warrant for her material on the laptop of Anthony Weiner.

E.W. (Bill) Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, made the disclosure to Judicial Watch as part of court-ordered discovery into the Clinton email issue.

U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth ordered Obama administration senior State Department officials, lawyers, and Clinton aides, as well as Priestap, to be deposed or answer writer questions under oath. The court ruled that the Clinton email system was “one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.”

....
Priestap also testifies that 48,982 emails were reviewed as a result of a warrant for Clinton email account information from the laptop of Anthony Weiner, who had been married to top Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

A complete copy of Priestap’s interrogatory responses is available here. Priestap, is serving as assistant director of the FBI’s counterintelligence division and helped oversee both the Clinton email and the 2016 presidential campaign investigations. Priestap testified in a separate lawsuit that Clinton was the subject of a grand jury investigation related to her BlackBerry email accounts.

This astonishing confirmation, made under oath by the FBI, shows that the Obama FBI had to go to President Obama’s White House office to find emails that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or hide from the American people.” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “No wonder Hillary Clinton has thus far skated – Barack Obama is implicated in her email scheme.”

Fitton was referring to the more than 30,000 emails under subpoena that were thoroughly deleted through an application called BleachBit by order of Clinton’s State Department team.

When James Comey announced in July 2016 that the FBI had decided not to refer criminal charges in the case, the then-FBI director, nevertheless, said Clinton had been “extremely careless” in her handling of classified information.

More than 100 emails on her server contained classified information, including 65 emails deemed “Secret” and 22 “Top Secret.” Another 2,093 emails were retroactively marked classified by the State Department.

Judicial Watch is trying to find out whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Freedom of Information Act by using a non-government email system.

‘Hundreds of classified emails’

Emails and handwritten notes written in June and July 2015 from the Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General discuss “concerns” over classified information on the server.

A redacted sender writes to State Department Official Margaret “Peggy” Grafeld that “inadvertent release of State Department’s equities when this collection is released in its entirety — the potential damage to the foreign relations of the United States could be significant. ICIG McCullough forwards the concern, saying: ‘Need you plugged in on this.'”

The sender writes: “While working with this inspector, I have personally reviewed hundreds of documents in the HRC collection. I can now say, without reservation, that there are literally hundreds of classified emails in this collection; maybe more.”

In an August 2015 internal FBI memo, the FBI notes that Hillary Clinton had signed a June 28, 2011, official correspondence advising all State Department employees that, “due to ‘recent targeting of personal e-mail accounts by online adversaries,’ State employees should ‘avoid conducting official Department business from (their) personal e-mail accounts.”

Hillary should have turned all of the emails over when she stopped being SOS. She didn't. Congress found that out during the Benghazi investigation and told her to do so immediately. Instead she destroyed 30,000 of them because she said that they were personal communications and not related to her job.

The reason Comey reopened his investigation was because the NYC FBI office found some of her emails on Anthony Weiner's personal laptop. This is a huge breach of security and like Comey stated, anyone else who did that would have been prosecuted. Peter Strzok changed Comey's wording on his report from "gross negligence" to a lesser charge. I'm looking for what he said.

Here are highlights of what Comey said:

- “Although we did not find clear evidence that Secretary Clinton or her colleagues intended to violate laws governing the handling of classified information, there is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive, highly classified information."
- Clinton’s emails included seven message chains with information classified as top secret.
- “None of these emails should have been on any kind of unclassified system.

- “The security culture of the State Department …was generally lacking in the kind of care for classified information found elsewhere in the government.”
- Comey acknowledged that the FBI did not normally make public its recommendations to prosecutors as to whether to bring criminal charges. He added: “In this case, given the importance of the matter, I think unusual transparency is in order.”
- “Although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
- “I know there will be intense public debate in the wake of this recommendation, as there was throughout this investigation.”

The other thing that her supporters don't seem to care about is that people who did not have security clearances to view classified information were able to access her server because she also had her foundation's business on it.

Im very doubtful that she will ever be charged for doing what she did, but what Judicial Watch will show is that she should have been. Chelsea Manning and the guy who took a picture of his submarine went to prison for mishandling classified information. Obama charged 9 people under the espionage for what they did.

That's really what they want to make this about. Since the same people who believe in her also believe in Saint Obama, we already know the answer they'll give. And they'll never stop believing in her.

Since they trust her completely, it doesn't MATTER who has the emails, because she said they were fine, and they trust her. Even Bernie said he trusted her, and there's nothing to talk about. Therefore the subject is dropped, because Clinton is trustworthy. QED.

Course most of em have been conditioned for years to not think about the constant hypocrisies and rhetorical beatings.

18 U.S. Code § 2071. Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally

(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.

Not only that, but she should have been ineligible to run for president. This is the magnitude of the crime that Hillary committed and the FBI covered up for her.

But her emails? You're damn right her emails.

Thanks for the spelling correction. Strange names are hard to spell right.

I've updated this with Comey's wording. The funny thing is I had already included it. But I've added quite a bit since I first posted this. I keep following links to new articles.

So, helpful people "correct" me when I spell it for them so that they can find my file. Some of them even use an angry tone when they "correct" me, as if I am deliberately misleading them because....actually, I have no idea why I'd mislead someone like a doctor's receptionist.

I wonder what kind of arrogance it takes to "correct" someone spelling his or her own name.

You're done here. There's the door. Given the boot. Banned.

People who wrote about topics that the community thought was conspiracy theories were bojo'd from daily kos. This essay would have gotten me bojo's before I could post it. This is why I titled it this way. The kos kids don't believe that Hillary did anything wrong using her private email server because people from the Bush administration also used private email accounts. Slight difference in my opinion. I think having total control over your emails is something that would not be acceptable..... they are angry with Comey for reopening his investigation into this and they also think it's what caused her to lose. I was more concerned about her warmongering. Speeches to the banks. Promoting fracking and the TPP and....

Lots of the topics that we cover here would be considered CT there. That most of us don't believe that Russia stole the election. Our writings on 9/11. Lots of stuff..

@snoopydawg I would have thought sure it was an acronym, or based on one, or some such. I had figured it meant something as your definitions... Thank you very much.

My problem with the emails were the system was set up to bypass FOIA requests, and to hide personal biz being mixed with state dept biz, or, grifting. Then Obama as CinC obviously knowing about it, and neither of the two highest officers in the country taking 101 high school basic security steps to protect TOP fn SECRET shit. Which we know was lost to a foreign country, or more. Then add there is no "intent" with failure to secure state secrets, and that Comey, Lynch, Obama, all conspired to cover it up so HER-> could still be crowned, and no one could figure it out.

May a virus be a plague on their families.

Thanks for the good coverage... and explanation Wink

Exactly. Keeping her emails from being seen because she was mixing business with grifting. Many times after she was done with her part of the grifting it would be Bill's turn. She'd fix problems for governments, businesses and people who would not only donate money to her foundation, but then they would pay Bill to give a speech. This had to be scheduled by daughter Chelsea and to do that she would have to have access to their server.

Then Obama as CinC obviously knowing about it, and neither of the two highest officers in the country taking 101 high school basic security steps to protect TOP fn SECRET shit

Yep again. Two people on Hillary's staff were concerned about evidence that people would find out that her emails would be on Obama's computer files. Wikileaks released the emails of them discussing that. They got nervous when Obama told us that he didn't know anything about her doing that and he found out the same time we did.

Then add there is no "intent" with failure to secure state secrets, and that Comey, Lynch, Obama, all conspired to cover it up so HER-> could still be crowned, and no one could figure it out.

Exactly again. If she had been found guilty she would not have been able to run for president. I doubt that Trump is going to go after any of them, but I'm hoping the truth will finally come out with enough evidence that people can't deny that she broke the law and that she should have been charged.

Thanks for the good coverage... and explanation

1. ""Intent" has nothing to do with breaking a law, even though Comey "lied" that it did. You broke the law or you did not. (See Mueller Report) "But officer, I did not intend to violate the speed limit"?

a "roadmap" to impeachment and said the probe was just the "beginning" and there is plenty more to do. In an interview with TIME Magazine on Tuesday, the former Secretary of State said anyone other than Trump would have been indicted for obstruction.

"If at that point they believe that high crimes and misdemeanors have been committed, then I think it is the obligation of the Congress to put forward articles of impeachment," Clinton said of further Congressional investigation.

TIME MAGAZINE:
You're a lawyer. Did Donald Trump obstruct justice as you read the incidences as Mueller lays it out?

FMR. SENATOR HILLARY CLINTON: I think there is enough there that any other person who had engaged in those acts would certainly have been indicted, but because of the rule in the Justice Department that you can't indict a sitting President, the whole matter of obstruction was very directly sent to the Congress. If you read that part of the report it could not be clearer -- as I read it, basically what I thought it was saying was, 'Look, we think he obstructed justice here. Here are 11 examples of why we think he obstructed justice, but we're under the control of the Justice Department and their rule is you can't indict. But we do have checks and balances here in America and there is this thing called the Congress. You could not be more explicit than, please, look at this. You may look at it and conclude it doesn't rise to an impeachable offense, that's your job, but I'm giving this to you...

Kinda like what James Comey said about her using her private email server huh? Gotta love it.

Clinton was always going to skate simply because if she went down, she would drag Obama down with her.

Now, with Trump in office, the principle is still the same in the sense of this:

Power protects power.
