Freedom of Information Act
“Secretary Clinton should have surrendered all emails dealing with Department business before leaving government service, and because she did not do so, she did not comply with the Department’s policies that were implemented in accordance with the Federal Records Act,” the audit report said. Bottom line: Mrs. Clinton violated the Federal Records Act. However, what is probably the most troubling about all of this is that, despite these blatant violations, there will be absolutely no legal repercussions for Mrs. Clinton for this offense. She’s off the hook! Why aren’t all the pundits screaming about that?
Late Thursday evening the Justice Department, under US attorney general Loretta Lynch, first appointed in 1999 by none other than Bill Clinton, filed a court motion opposing the Clinton deposition request from conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch, claiming that the organization was trying to dramatically expand the scope of the lawsuit.
According to Lewis Lukens, a veteran 27-year foreign service officer at the State Department who served as the deputy executive secretary Clinton did not use a password to protect her stand-alone computer from unwanted intruders such as hackers. During the deposition, Lukens volunteered that the stand-alone computer adjacent to her suite did not have a password for protection “She wouldn’t have had a password.” Bekesha asked, astonished, “So the computer would have just been open and be able to use without going through any security features?” “Correct,” Lukens replied.
"I believe there's ample evidence to indict her and the only way she wouldn't be is if the president or the attorney general makes a political decision."
After early promises to be the most transparent administration in history, this has been one of the most secretive. And in certain ways, one of the most elusive. On media rights generally, the Obama administration hasn’t walked its talk. It has set new records for stonewalling or rejecting Freedom of Information requests. And it has used an obscure federal act to prosecute leakers.
In a surprising reversal, what many thought was impossible, namely the State Department cracking down on its former head and Democratic presidential frontrunner, Hillary Clinton, seems all too possible following news that the State Department inspector General audit has faulted Hillary Clinton, other secretaries of state for poorly managing electronic communications.
"I worked at The CIA. I wrote the Emergency Destruction Plan for Geneva. When CIA destroys something, it's never a mistake..."
In a repeat of the fiascos involving the IRS' Lois Lerner, and more recently, none other than Hillary Clinton, the CIA’s internal watchdog “inadvertently” deleted its only copy of the Senate report on torture techniques employed by the agency in the wake of 9/11 – and did so while the Justice Department was insisting in court that copies were being stored.
The classified 28-pages of the 9/11 report have made global headlines lately as a handful of lawmakers battle to release them to the public. Those pages are believed by activists and members of Congress — who have seen them — to expose the role of Saudi Arabia, including government officials, in the terrorist attacks. But according to a new report based on years of investigative journalism, it turns out there are far more than 28 classified pages on Saudi Arabia and 9/11 — there are 80,000 kept secret by the FBI.
Hillary Clinton sits at the center of a raging firestorm concerning her arrangement of a private email account and server set up in her home - from which top secret information may have been deleted. But despite Bernie Sanders’ apparent annoyance with the “damn emails,” the scandal just exponentially intensified, when Judge Andrew Napolitano revealed on Monday that Russia has possession of around 20,000 of Clinton’s emails - leaving open the possibility her deletions might not have been permanent after all.
Hillary Clinton may want to lay low from all forms of communication for a while. On top of everything Hillary has been dealing with as of late, starting with her email server probe (where the FBI is supposedly nearing a conclusion), her painful inability to answer voter questions, and having to double down on her innocence as her top aides meet with the FBI, a new stunning discovery has been made. According to newly released emails, Hillary talked to her top aides on unsecured phone lines.
Mrs. Clinton’s folks are preparing for the worst. They have leaked nonsense from “U.S. officials” that the feds have found no intent to commit espionage on the part of Mrs. Clinton. Too bad these officials - political appointees, no doubt - skipped or failed Criminal Law 101. The government need not prove intent for either espionage or for lying to federal agents... And it prosecutes both crimes very vigorously.
In a dramatic development that could lead to renewed focus on Hillary Clinton's email server scandal, NBC reports that the Romanian hacker who first exposed Hillary Clinton's private email address is making a "bombshell" new claim: that he also gained access to the former Secretary of State's "completely unsecured" server.
"It was pretty glowing about us... It’s so far from what she sounds like as a candidate now. It was like a rah-rah speech. She sounded more like a Goldman Sachs managing director."
Dr. Ed Ward has documented what he believes is strong evidence suggesting that up to three thermonuclear devices were detonated at the World Trade Center site on 9/11.
