Clinton, in newly revealed emails, discussed classified foreign policy matters, secretive 'private' comms channel with Israel

An article from Fox News reporting on information given to Judicial Watch based on a FOIA suit that you won’t see on the ‘left’s’ list of Approved Sources. I did a Google search and there’s nothing about this. What you find is the LAST time they found classified info on her server back in 2016. Maybe they’ll mention it in a week or never.

Anyway, there’s still thousands of documents to go. It’s time to put and end to this Mueller crap and start dealing with the REAL problem, which is the Democratic Party and every member who allows this tragi-comedy of RUSSIA!!! collusion crap to continue, even by keeping silent. We have too many serious problems to deal with. Between ’investigations’ and ‘testing the water for 2020’ Trump is getting all kinds of things ‘done’. Like packing the courts,

Clinton, in newly revealed emails, discussed classified foreign policy matters, secretive 'private' comms channel with Israel

A newly unearthed batch of heavily redacted, classified emails from Hillary Clinton's personal email server revealed that the former secretary of state discussed establishing a "private, 100% off-the-record" back channel to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and that one of her top aides warned her that she was in "danger" of being "savaged by Jewish organizations, in the Jewish press and among the phalanx of neoconservative media" as a result of political machinations by "Bibi and the Jewish leadership."

Additionally, according to the email dump, Clinton chatted with former U.K. Prime Minister Tony Blair about foreign policy before she was sworn in, aided the application of at least one State Department applicant who was connected to her daughter, Chelsea, and apparently met with Putin-aligned Georgian oligarch Bidzina Ivanishvili before he became prime minister on a staunchly pro-Russian platform -- and with reported help from a Russian interference operation. Ivanishvili pointedly did not criticize Putin during his campaign, despite Putin's invasion of Georgia years earlier -- and in 2012, Ivanishvili made headlines for refusing to meet with Clinton unless it was a one-on-one sitdown.

Clinton's discussions with Blair included a classified 2011 conversation on foreign policy, and another classified, redacted 2011 conversation concerning a "speech." Clinton also apparently discussed job-related topics with Blair on January 16, 2009 -- while George W. Bush was still president but after the Senate Foreign Relations Committee had approved her for the job. In one email thread with the subject line "Re: Gaza," dated January 16, 2009, Blair said he wanted to have a matter "resolved before Tuesday," apparently referring to Obama's inauguration.

Clinton replied: "Tony - We are finally moving and I am looking forward to talking w you as soon as I'm confirmed, tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest. Your emails are very helpful so pls continue to use this address," hr15@att.blackberry.net."

Separately, two email chains showed the apparently close coordination between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation, which has long been accused by Republicans of operating essentially as a corrupt "pay-to-play" operation that effectively sold access to the Obama administration. Donations to the Clinton Foundation plummeted after Clinton's 2016 election loss.

In one email thread, top Clinton aides at the State Department, including Huma Abedin, coordinated a trip to Haiti with Clinton Foundation officials, including Clinton Foundation Director of Advance John Zimmerebner. Bill and Hillary Clinton were headed to Haiti to promote the Caracol Industrial Park, a $300M project funded by U.S. taxpayers through USAID that was heavily promoted to investors by the Clinton Foundation. Slate later called the park a "disappointment by any measure," noting it had no discernible positive impact on Haiti's economy and created tens of thousands fewer jobs than anticipated.

In closed-door testimony last year, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok acknowledged that the Justice Department "negotiated" an agreement with Clinton's legal team that ensured the FBI did not have access to emails on her private servers relating to the Clinton Foundation, even as they probed her handling of classified information.

I especially like that Slate blip:

Much like everything the Clintons touch. Bill came in on the dot.com bubble and went out when it burst. He was one lucky schmuck. And he paved the way for all the damage and destruction of the bush**/Cheney cabal. ‘New’ Democrats my pink patoot.

... And, Clinton Foundation employee Sidney Blumenthal sent Clinton a now-heavily redacted proposal from a former CIA officer concerning improvised-explosive devices, which Blumenthal called a "terrific project." Blumenthal told Clinton the CIA officer had been “unable to break through the bureaucracy with" the proposal.

In closed-door testimony last year, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok acknowledged that the Justice Department "negotiated" an agreement with Clinton's legal team that ensured the FBI did not have access to emails on her private servers relating to the Clinton Foundation, even as they probed her handling of classified information.

In a particularly striking January 2009 email uncovered by Judicial Watch, Blumenthal, citing sources, told Clinton that "Jewish institutional leaders" were working to derail President Obama's appointment of George Mitchell as Special Envoy to the Middle East. Citing the same sources, Blumenthal warned Clinton that "every one of your conversations and communications with Bibi Netanyahu flows directly and instantly back to top Jewish leadership ... You should, of course, assume that nothing involving him is private."

Blumenthal, attaching a memo titled "Good Cop, Bad Cop," said Mitchell was "politically vulnerable" because he was of “Arab descent," and was facing attacks "carefully scripted" by top Jewish leaders. Blumenthal advised Clinton and Obama to bring aboard a "bad cop" who was a “political appointee, Jewish, considered a true friend of Israel" to help resist the attacks.

Blumenthal invoked former Secretary of State James Baker, saying he was "savaged by Jewish organizations, in the Jewish press and among the phalanx of neoconservative media" for taking a tough stance on Israel that "stunned the Israelis."

"You are always in danger of being maneuvered into Baker's position," Blumenthal wrote to Clinton. "Mitchell is even more immediately in danger."

Obama and Clinton are peas in a pod. He out lied her and that's how he won, and she didn't. The corruption up there is so deep and so wide ranging, it will never be exposed let alone ended. Turn over one rock, and there,'s a million more. They protect one another and we're nothing more than sitting ducks to be plucked when it suits them. #$%@&$

Don't disparage Hillary's ability to lie. She can out lie Obama any day of the week after a half gallon of Chablis. She had a public record at the federal level of nearly 20 years. He had a blank slate. When she lied he could point to contrary behavior in her record. It proved to be an insurmountable obstacle.

I mean, the very way you insulate yourself from criticism is to project that moral, ethical, or political weakness on your opponent.

Like any of them expect to have the prying eyes of the public turned upon them when they throw stones at glass mansions.

This is why the binary political issue is so friggin' key. For this shit to work, there can only be 1 fulcrum: This or That.

I just came to the conclusion that it is immoral and unethical to vote for a D that you don't believe in. It IS the fault of party line voters that we are where we are.

DOJ And Clinton Lawyers Struck Secret Deal To Block FBI Access To Clinton Foundation Emails: Strzok
by Tyler Durden
Sat, 03/16/2019

The Justice Department and Hillary Clinton's legal team "negotiated" an agreement that blocked the FBI from accessing emails on Clinton's homebrew server related to the Clinton Foundation, according to a transcript of recently released testimony from last summer by former FBI special agent Peter Strzok.

… Strzok added that "a significant filter team" was employed at the FBI to "work through the various terms of the various consent agreements."

"According to the attorneys, we lacked probable cause to get a search warrant for those servers and projected that either it would take a very long time and/or it would be impossible to get to the point where we could obtain probable cause to get a warrant," said Strzok.

The foundation has long been accused of "pay-to-play" transactions, fueled by a report in the IBTimes that the Clinton-led State Department authorized $151 billion in Pentagon-brokered deals to 16 countries that donated to the Clinton Foundation - a 145% increase in completed sales to those nations over the same time frame during the Bush administration.

... What's more, Bill Clinton reportedly received a $1 million check from Qatar - one of the countries which gained State Department clearance to buy US weapons while Clinton was Secretary of State, even as the department signaled them out for a range of alleged ills," according to IBTimes. The Clinton Foundation confirmed it accepted the money.

Then there was the surely unrelated $145 million donated to the Foundation from parties linked to the Uranium One deal prior to its approval through a rubber-stamp committee.

… "What's bizarre about this, is in any other situation, there's no possible way they would allow the potential perpetrator to self-select what the FBI gets to see," said former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz - former chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee until 2017 and current contributor to Fox News. "The FBI should be the one to sort through those emails -- not the Clinton attorneys."

Chaffetz suggested that the goal of the DOJ was to "make sure they hear no evil, see no evil -- they had no interest in pursuing the truth."

"The Clinton Foundation isn't supposed to be communicating with the State Department anyway," said Chaffetz. "The foundation -- with her name on it -- is not supposed to be communicating with the senior officials at the State Department."

ever gets out. To have a secret pipeline to Bibi that can't be viewed by a FOIA should have been reported on when it was discovered, but even the republicans are covering for her. Lots of information came out during the congressional hearings that directly proved Hillary broke the law. If Comey wasn't going to charge her then he should have gone after the people who didn't have security clearances and who read, received and sent classified information. Bluementhal being the most prominent. Obama told Hillary to keep him out of state department business. She didn't. He was very active in setting up the Libya massacre. This was Hillary's baby.

Separately, two email chains showed the apparently close coordination between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation

so that people can have access to her, her interference for them with her state department. The foundation had to know where she was so that Chelsea could send Bill there for his speech. Just more pay for play from the Clinton duo. Wonder how they are surviving now that donations dropped like a turd after she lost the easiest election in history?

This is off topic, but related to the fake Russian BS.
