You Know Those Missing Hillary Emails? Russia Might Leak 20,000 Of Them

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.

“There’s a debate going on in the Kremlin between the Foreign Ministry and the Intelligence Services about whether they should release the 20,000 of Mrs. Clinton’s emails that they have hacked into,” Napolitano told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly in an interview for The Kelly File.

With Clinton’s repeated claims she employed the personal email server only for mundane communications and non-sensitive State matters having been proven outright lies, the deletions of 31,830 emails — in the new context of Napolitano’s statement — have suddenly become remarkably relevant.

As the FBI investigation of Hillary Clinton’s questionable email practices deepens, the question of who had access to what information previously located on the former secretary of state’s server is now more critical than ever.

One such individual, Romanian hacker Guccifer, who was abruptly extradited to the United States, revealed he had easily and repeatedly accessed Clinton’s personal server — and he wasn’t the only one.

“For me, it was easy,” the hacker, whose given name is Marcel Lehel Lazar, exclusively told Fox News; “easy for me, for everybody.”

If Guccifer and Napolitano are right, Russia may, indeed, have possession of highly-sensitive information courtesy of Clinton’s arrogant failure to adhere to the obligation to use a government email account during her tenure as secretary — a situation worsened by the now-mendacious claim no sensitive information had been sent through the personal account.

In fact, if Guccifer is to be believed — as his extradition by the U.S. indicates — news of the Kremlin having obtained potentially top-secret material may be the tip of a gargantuan iceberg. Using a readily available program, the Romanian hacker also claimed he observed “up to 10, like, IPs from other parts of the world” during sessions on Clinton’s personal server. If just one of those unknown parties was connected to Russia, who the other nine might be could be central to the FBI’s decision whether or not to charge Clinton for mishandling classified information.

Adding yet another nail in the coffin case against Hillary on Thursday, the Hill reported conservative watchdog Judicial Watch revealed, pursuant to a Freedom of Information Act request, frustration with technical difficulties in obtaining a secure phone line led the secretary to direct a top aide to abandon the effort and call her without the necessary security in place.

“I give up. Call me on my home [number],” Clinton wrote in a February 2009 email from the newly-released batch — on the also notoriously unsecured server — to then-chief of staff, Cheryl Mills.

Though the email thread contains no confirmation such a call was ever made on the unsecured phone line, it evidences still more of the same flagrant disregard for national security apparently peppering Clinton’s practices during her time at the State Department.

“This drip, drip of new Clinton emails show Hillary Clinton could not care less about the security of her communications,” noted Judicial Watch president, Tom Fitton, in a statement cited by the Hill. “How many other smoking gun emails are Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators in the Obama administration hiding from the American people?”

For a putative presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton certainly doesn’t appear to appreciate the imperative for keeping matters of national security obscured from … anyone.

Great News For Popcorn Lovers!

Two film moguls, John McCain and Lindsey Graham, who are well known for producing countless ISIS decapitation videos, have announced the creation of the new film production conglomerate, DeathWorks Studios CGI.

According to the classified “28-pages Press Release”, CGI has nothing to do with Computer-Generated Imagery – it is just an innocent acronym for their bankrollers, the Clinton Global Initiative Foundation.

Looney   ;-)

Russia is the counterbalance to the insane neocons.

After having grown up during the height of the The Cold War, it's a strange thing indeed to find myself pulling for the Russians.

Supernova Born's picture

Wanting Hillary kept from the presidency is pulling for America.

That it would be a win-win for Russia and Americans is what makes the possibility so cool.

philipat's picture

The smart thing for Russia to do would be to turn over the copies to the FBI. Think about it for a moment....

Supernova Born's picture

If Nixon was stupid for recording his machinations on an analog tape recorder in his office, how epically stupid was Hillary for communicating in a way that allowed any computer expert on the planet to access and preserve her communications and attachments in real time?

The only good news is the arrogance itself.  Watch how Trump reels her want my tax returns?   Let's talk about your speeches.  You want to attack me for stuff from 1991?  I guess the 1990s are fair game now.

She's not just walking onto his playing field, she's skipping, backwards, with her eyes closed.

jcaz's picture

Yep, emphatically rooting for Russia to release- and no, do NOT go thru the FBI- as well meaning as the FBI is,  they're clearly neutered in this deal.

Let em rip, Ivan....

Have you not figured that she helps makes Trump look good in this bottom of the barrel dog and pony show? No one votes for freedom and rule of law, they just vote for 2 wolves at the table set by "someone else". Cannot believe Americans are behaving like the days before Obama was elected...again! Step outside yourselves, its a trap.

OK, so I read the headline and my immediate reaction was a full belly laugh.


Putting that aside, the only emails that would be admissable without the hacker(s) who swiped them testifying to authenticating are the ones that allegedly were sent by Hillary.  Those would be a party-opponent statement. 


I pose this question for you:  If you were a Russian hacker, would you want to testify in this case if you were the one who broke into the Clinton's server?  My answer is no, not unless you never had to leave Russia.  There are rules that would allow for that, but this one probably has more legs in the court of public opinion.

One would have to suppose that Russia would rather Hillary go to the White House then anybody.., afterall, they own her now.

like the mafia and the kgb owned j edgar hoover because of the sex photos they had of him and clyde tolson?  possibly.

though neither announced they had the photos.

wonder what the russians know about 9-11.

"Based on data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, only 21% of the 1800 whistleblower cases reviewed by the agency in 2007 had "a favorable outcome" for the whistleblower."

Little surprise that whistleblowing has gone offshore.

Russia should turn over the documenets (It wants to admit) it has to the FBI because:

  1. It can pretend that it doesn't want to get into more disputes with the US and wants to do the right thing as a responsible International citizen.
  2. At the same time, it can also make a statement to the effect that it is doing so especially because there is "Highly sensitive" information in the emails so the responsible thing to do is to turn them over to the FBI (See also above)
  3. That strengthens the hand of the FBI and weakens the position of DOJ/WHite House because if even Russia is in possession of sensitive information, and confirms that there is sensitive information, it becomes more difficult for them to back off.
  4. They still retain the ability to leak the documents at any time they see fit if things don't move their way.
  5. Yes, it is true that it depends on WHO they want to see as POTUS because they would have the dirt on Hillary and could control her. On the other hand, they have all this dirt and more already on far more than Hillary and they recognise that she is a neocon psycopath who wants to go to war with Russia. Trump wants to make peace. So, on balance, Vlad being a pragmatist, I think he will go with Trump. The Chines, on the other hand, have far more need for circumspection in view of Trump's trade policies.

Hey Vlad,

Wait until Hellary gets the nomination, then release the Kraken.

Dormouse's picture

Exactly! After the convention, maybe closer to the election.

Secret Weapon's picture

Respectfully disagree on the timing of the release.  I suggest the teloease should be made after she is interviewed by the FBI and before the convention so as not to be seen as interfering with the election.  Once she is interviewed she is locked into her position. Until the candidates are selected at the convention the release cannot be said to favor one candidate over the others.

RT broke this story on March 20, and Sorcha Faal re-reported it on May 6. Napolitano is simply regurgitating this, but my guess is he reads Sorcha, and that's where he got the info.

Russia citizenry is drop jaw shock at nascent inept Amerikansky media and citizenry. Boris two year ago is print out Hillary email to read during long bowel movement and is now use stack as toilet paper, is so old news.

@ AV Master "The kids and women like that guy too much and that's not good as kids and women make poor decisions because they are not as mature and make the worst irrational decisions based off of emotions..."

Since you are a "new kid" to fight club this is not another one of your video games. Since when in history have "men" (generally speaking) proven to be exceptional in any thing other than greed, war and jerk egos?

AVmaster's picture

That "greed, war, and jerk ego" created that iPhone that ur currently drooling over kiddo...

For me, the real question is why?

Why take the immense risk of transmitting via unsecure server?  Even the most crooked, corrupt officials in current and prior regimes, like Cheney, Wolfowitz, Jarrett, Emanuel, et. al, still managed to use their .gov/.mil addresses for official business.

So is it just pure laziness?  As evidenced in some of the released emails, where Hillary uses "pls" and "ur" like a 12 yr old texting her friends, telling her staffers to go unsecure because they don't want to wait for the IT nerds to sort out some technical issues.

Or was the real purpose to cover up the trail of blood and money that leads directly to the Clinton Slush Fund Foundation?

Or, perhaps, given the fact that the Clintons and Obamas despise each other, Hilary went this route to avoid having any of her official mail being accessed by Obama loyalists.

All of the above plus hillary is a stubborn like pud, especially when it comes to breaking the rules...

If there is ANY truth to Russia having even one Hillary email that hasn't been released, she is doomed.  They are probably waiting until after the Democrats nominate her before releasing the bad news.

onthesquare's picture

Putin will play this very cool.

you want the emails then lift those sanctions

you do not want the emails then lift those sanctions

On the other hand Putin is not big on Trump.

Prediction; a False Flag will take merca to dep-con 5 and Barack will call off the elections with an executive order.

I don't know.  He seems to be growing tired of being President.  Howver, he does relish the power, the airplane and the beast.  Anything is possible from the POS.  He doesn't care about America - only himself.

What if...the Benghazi attack was precipitated by the attackers having had access to classified e-mail discussions about Ambassador Stevens' mission in Benghazi on that fateful night? What if we come to find out the actual cause of the Benghazi attack was borne out of access to Hillary's unsecured e-mails?

OMG!  Would Americans demand that heads would roll, litterally, if that were proven true.  I don't think even Obama would be immune from such a revelation.  Afterall, he communicated with Hillary using her .com email address instead of a .gov address.

"What difference does it make?" (Sorry, I couldn't find a screechy Wicked Witch of the World font for that.)

Thoresen's picture

Absolutely! The Russians giving the emails to the FBI is the answer. They can say they've acted responsibly and just put a few redacted copies online as proof.
The risk, though, is that the media will just spin it as evidence of Russian spying.... they could even pretend that the Russians hacked government servers and deflect the whole thing away from Hillary.

WorkingFool's picture

That would require trusting the FBI.  Leverage / insurance is needed to force compliance with a deal - WikiLeaks pehaps?

Careful what you wish for... want Biden /Warren instead?


Anyone else have trouble believing Clinton wrote 20k emails?  I have trouble with that.

IndyPat's picture

I don't.
She claimed 30000 of them were harmless shit about wedding plans and yoga classes.
Bet ya my balls to a barn dance some of those 20000 the ruskies have are draft speech emails for her Goldman speaking engagements. Those alone should give Bern a +20 bump and some super delegates some pause.
Bet the Libya and Egypt ones are a hoot, too.

YuShun's picture

She was Secretary of State for just over four years.
20,000 divided by 365x4 = 14
If she wrote as many as she received,
then she wrote 7 per day.


mary mary's picture

Many of them could have been one-sentence emails, like "yes", or "don't forget to floss, honey".

Phoenix Pilgrim's picture

Some of the e-mails were generated by her contractors that "Follow" and "Like" her on Facebook and Twitter.

Boris Badenov's picture

How many emails from Chris Stevens asking for more security?  with no response. Hackers sitting, waiting for response too. None. Were any real-time anti-Libyan rebels? or Libyan patriots? We ned Mr. Gowdy to explain what exactly was being coordinated in that embassy, and the rest of the story will become clear. Go Donald!  er, Mr. Trump! (respect).

Winston Churchill's picture

That would implicate the GOP leadership as well.

He was positioned to not find out the truth.

SoP in the halls of power in any country.

Was Chris Stevens set up? 

If so, by whom, and for what reason?
