Senator Admits The FBI Is "About To Ask Putin For His Copies Of Hillary's Emails"

Tyler Durden's picture

It is well known that the FBI still does not have roughly 30,000 emails that Hillary Clinton deleted from her private server due to Clinton categorizing them as personal and not work related. We have also reported that Russia may be in possession of those emails, and according to Judge Andrew Napolitano, there is a debate going on in the Kremlin about whether or not to release them.

Given that the FBI still doesn't have the emails, Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton (of the US is "under-incarcerated" fame), who is a Trump supporter and also serves on the Senate Intelligence Committee, has become so frustrated that Cotton suggests the FBI is about to ask Putin for his copies. Cotton also took a jab at Bill Clinton's meeting with Loretta Lynch, saying that his plane was also on the tarmac, and he thought Bill Clinton may be waiting to climb on board to talk with him as well.

As Breitbart reports

A combat veteran of Iraq and Afghanistan, Sen. Thomas Cotton (R.-Ark.) said he was glad to make it on time for his speech after a series of travel delays.


We were on the tarmac, I thought Bill Clinton might be boarding my plane to talk to me,” said the former Army Airborne Ranger officer.


Cotton said it was shocking, but not shocking to him, that the former president would meet with Attorney General Loretta Lynch — whose department is investigating both his wife and himself for his handling of the Clinton Foundation.


Clinton’s decision to conduct all her official business on her own private email account on her own private server and the way she has handled official and media inquires about it was just teaser of how her administration will approach transparency and national security, Cotton said.


The FBI still does not have 30,000 emails the expected Democratic nominee for president claimed to have deleted.


“It has gotten so bad, the FBI is on the verge of asking Vladimir Putin for his copies of Hillary’s emails,” Cotton said.


In addition to the criminal nature of the former first lady scheme, he said, conducting official and classified business on an unsecured server exposed American national security to our enemies.


Americans should not be surprised that the former secretary of state would put America at risk, he said. Working with President Barack Obama, Clinton oversaw a foreign policy that treated allies as troublemakers and our enemies as victims with legitimate complaints about the United States. Chief among the enemies is the Islamic Republic of Iran, which Obama-Clinton empowered by lifting sanctions, thawing frozen assets, and ignoring Iran’s support of violent terrorism.

Hah ha ha ha ha ha ha
Come on Hillary.  Fess up.
So Vlad publicly gives all his copies that he got off the dark web to the FBI, saying that he is honored that he could help America in it's proper enforcement of it's laws.  Because he as all good western leaders, value the fair and impartial rule of law.  (While wanting the Donald to be prez, because he figures has a chance to stop this global power grabbing bullshit.)
What an Embarrassment for Hillary

Obstructionism, maybe

This Just In!!!


She is being charged with Jaywalking in front of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

All crimes, felonies, and misdemeanors in DC fall under the FBI’s jurisdiction and Loretta Lynch herself will spearhead the prosecution of Hillary Rodham Clinton, a Serial Jaywalker.

The prosecution A-Team plans to call all 147 FBI agents and 4 Ex-Presidents to testify.

The trial is expected to take 8-10 years. Hillary faces the fine of $27.00, if convicted.  ;-)

I can't see Putin complying on this.
His best leverage is behind the scenes using the emails to persuade.
Subpoena or lawsuits coming? Can't be enforced. Plus would be a joke in world media to put forth stupid legal paper on this. It would be stupid even to ask, but as Forest Gump would say, stupid is as stupid does.
Putin will likely neither confirm or deny on this.

Funnier would be if he redirect the request to the Iranians and then they would comply with it. :D

Oracle---yes, if the Iranians did the delivery--who delivered the emails? Snowden? Guiciffer2?

I have a request---does anyone have Dmitry Orlov's email? I would love to hear his take on the matter....I value Dmitry's input. Spot on.

Sorry to be a wet blanket on the party but I would say " if this thing blows" not "when".  Just cynical in my old age.

Troubling they can't pin "anything" on her without Putin. What about Guccifer? Thought he had everything, and he's already been here for weeks. Must not be the case. What ever happened to Wikileaks releasing everything? Disappointing.

"What ever happened to Wikileaks releasing everything? Disappointing."


Put up or shut the fuck up Julian...  Why are they always teasing to release shit, the truth at any cost.

John_Coltrane's picture

Patience grasshopper, if I had the emails I wouldn't release them now.  We want Cankles to secure the nomination indictment-free and then get her "campaign" up and running spending huge amounts of money.  Then, I'd release the emails about 2-4 weeks before the general, to ensure a Trump landslide taking the senate control above 60 so no filabuster of supreme court nominees is possible.  We need two or three more Antonia Scalia or Robert Bork type replacements.  Isn't that what anyone who hates Hilliary and Obama would do?  And you know the people who hacked the unsecured server hate Cankles as much as we do on ZH.

Cochore's picture

Wikileaks released a further 1258 Clinton emails yesterday.


The problem isn't the information but whether the majority of the US electorate is prepared to do due diligence on the candidates.

JRobby's picture

Cotton is ex-military, has his own plane and wants to lock up more people. Sounds like a NWO superstar in the making.

I will refrain from making comments about his appearance. Apparently my sessions are starting to reap the desired effect?

Putin plays the bigger game here. If he can get something out of this he is going to have it. Plus he could then always hold it 'against' Trump (he got him the presidency). 


Plus it is the US economy that is going down slowly but surely, Russia has deals with China and even in crisis - they would stick together as natural allies against the hegemony.

jcdenton's picture

What Putin will probably do here ..


Is operate with back-channels (private intel groups) ..

He is already doing this, and has been doing this for some time ..

These groups represents 'white hats' in the Pentagon (DoD) ..


He has been slowly but surely releasing intel on 9/11 per request of these groups ..

He has been releasing intel on the Clintons/Bushes since they were part of 9/11 ..


You must understand this. Putin is former GRU (military intelligence) ..

A current GRU officer is part of one of these private groups ..

He is a personal friend of Putin ..

Some others of these groups are very close to Putin as well ..

One of them got drunk with Putin on very fine Russian vodka, while he was Deputy Mayor of Leningrad (before it went back to St. Pete)


So, what MSM report and what certain senators request is old news ..

This process has been well in progress for some time ..


The wheels of justice turn slowly ..

But they are certainly turning ..

And, in due time -- justice will be served ..

Freddie's picture

You assume there are good guys or white hats in the military which I think is fantasy.  If there had been good guys then they would have arrested Lincoln, his gang and the banksters who pushed The Civil War where 1.1 million people died for nothing.

Or arrested LBJ, the Bushes, Allen Dulles and many others for murdering JFK.   I have heard the fantasy of the CIA/military group rushing to Dallas to stop the hit BS.  I doubt it,

Bushes and Clintons are See Eye Aye.  Obama is probably as well.

Think SPECTRE in the Bond films where these people run criminal operations to benefit SPECTRE or the See Eye Aye.  The Agency, from what I can tell, was created by Rockefellers during WW2.  The US version of Rothschild's Mi6. Rockefellers created CFR and other crap plus donated the land for the UN.

Good guys at The Pentagram or with Deep State?  LOL!  Tooth fairy is more believable.

Hillary and Bill only go down if the See Eye Aye/CFR approve it.

ebworthen's picture

I disagree.  This gives Putin the chance to avoid 4-8 years of phone calls and meetings with a rancorous ugly two-face cankle-ridden she-male - and instead enjoy some man time with a fellow man like the good old days.

Who would Putin rather visit in the White House, or host in Moscow - Hitlary and Slick Willy, or Trump and Melania? 

That's a no brainer.  Release the emails Vlad!

Yes We Can. But Lets Not.'s picture

Hell, don't just submit the emails to Vlad, post them on a .ru website for one and all to freely peruse.  Once that happens, the Clintons will be chased down by mobs bearing pitchforks.

Freddie's picture

The Clinton FOundation is amazingly corrupt to the tune of at least $50 billion on a global basis plus apparently all 50 states.

They could release everything and the US govt and legal system/judiciary will do nothing.  The Clintons, Bushes and Obola are all closely connected to the See Eye Aye and they put them there.  Unless the See Eye Aye throws the Clintons under the bus, nothing will happen.

If Vlad blabs and releases those emails...

And if Hillarity is not indicted and wins the Presidency...

Then Hitlery will retaliate by launching a Nuclear First Strike.

The American Public will overwhelmingly buy into any False Flag presented to them that implicates Russia.


And,yes, I can see that mean, vindictive, evil psychopathic cunt, Hitlery, orchestrating an attack of revenge against Vlad if she is empowered to do so. Bush the Junior did that very same act against Saddam Hussein with Depleted Uranium, poisoning Iraq and turning it into an ocean of Radioactive Glass, because Saddam Hussein attempted to kill his Daddy. Those two are basically no different in personality defect.


I recently watched a video where Vlad said that he will not interfere in the internal Political Process of another Nation.

He demonstrated that as he refused to take a position in the Brexit vote. Vlad's words matched Vlad's that circumstance.


While Vlad is a professional politician and, being just as psychopathic as the rest of the World Leaders, I must admit that he plays his role as a statesman and as a Class Act very well. He is also extremely CLEVER.


Yes even though I may despise all politicians there are some with some positive attributes and redeeming qualities. Vlad has some of those.


Vlad has nothing to gain and everything to lose, especially if Hillarity is SELECTED.


Furthermore it is quite transparent that Vlad is being set up as a patsy...the bad guy...the spoiler.


If I were Vlad then I'd tell the FBI to go and fuck themseleves.

So I guess your calling him "psychopathic" is totally unwarranted?


Tall Tom's picture



Not at all.


Some psychopaths are amongst the best at behaving with charm.


There are also degrees of psychopathy.


But they have an inability to experience empathy.


Your classic Hollywood portrayal of a psychopath is quite misleading.


Many CEOs of Wall Street's largest firms are clinical psychopaths. Most, if not ALL, Government Leaders are clinical psychopaths.


They are calculating and manipulative. Many are brilliant.


But they use people until they believe that the person is no longer useful. Then the people are discarded. If they believe the person to be a threat then they will move to neutralize the threat. (Even Putin has imprisoned his Political Opponents.)


Excuses will be fabricated and the psychopath is unable to feel remorse. The psychopath is NEVER WRONG. It is always someone else's fault. They may outwardly demonstrate remorse, as a mimic of what they have learned through watching others, but inwardly the psychopath is dead inside. They do that which they feel expedient to further their personal goals.


Psychopaths are amoral. They are the center of their own Universe. I have met many in the real World. I have been victimized by some. There are some here on Zerohedge, who have exposed themselves by that which they write on these pages. Actually there are, as a percentage, more here than in the real World.


They only care about themselves and are narcissists.


Be careful not to confuse individualism with antiisocial behavior. Unfortunately as individualism is the antithesis to Socialist Collectivism. it is just astrue that being antisocial is the antithesis to social. Thus the individualist ideology is attractive to the antisocial personality.


Furthermore do not confuse the art of defense with the wreckage of antisocial offense.


As an example. Wars are wrong. But that does not mean that I personally have not studied warfare or do not consider waging War if it becomes necessary. But one just not stand a chance with peashooters against armor. So, instead of thinking about myself and having that personal advatage over everyone else, I tell everyone else about it...EVERYONE,,,from all walks of life...even the that they might have a fighting chance. I place myself at risk even publishing these inconvenient facts so that others may have the information..


On the otherhand a psychopath would keep his mouth shut and think about how to gain from having an advantage, using the knowledge for his benefit and his benefit alone.

DutchResistance's picture

Just put the ball in her court, politely, yet publicly,  ask if she would like them so that she could do fully cooperate with the legal possess she is doing now.  

After all, if those darned ole' emails were available on her servers she would have gladly turned them over to the FBI months ago.

So, it would be a win -win!

Don't give them to FBI, give them to Hillary.

Wile-E-Coyote's picture

This is BS the NSA has copies of her emails go and talk to them. Putin won't comply, why admit to snooping on Clinton it would give the Neocons a field day.

crazzziecanuck's picture

Yeah.  Cue up the Admiral Akbar line: "It's a trap!"


It would allow the American MSM to go "see, they've been waging information war on us!"

Sam.Spade's picture

Then you haven't been paying attention.  He has floated several trial balloons in an effort to get these things into the public discussion, notably through Judge Napolatino (sp?) and Wikileaks.  The response from Obama was to threaten war, so Putin is now putting pressure on the FBI to get them to ask him for the emails.


His objective is to get The Donald elected because he sees it as the only way to avoid a Neocon-generated war, which he really doens't want.

Sad that I find myself rooting for a Russian dictator.



Thom_333's picture

The FBI have gotten their balls in a vice. If they do what they want to do - just kill the investigation the info will be released on - let's say Wikileaks. They're trying to figure out how to extract their ball sac intact. But overall this is good. The closer we get to Nov with Hillary as the candidate - the better.

The Jackal's picture

Information is power, but in this case the vast majority are already available on TOR sites. And, by the way, the FBI operates most of the exit nodes for TOR (search back articles on Cryptome for more information).


Either way, I'd doubt my sanity if either of them were indicted, much less prosecuted.  "Justice" in the US just doesn't work that way.

Regardless of what comes of this... Senator Cotton is perhaps THE greatest of the Israeli AIPAC ass-lickers in our sychophantic congress and I can't stand anything about him.  All a good show, Tommy boy... all a good show.

jeff montanye's picture

that may well be true (this is the first i've heard of him) but he possibly does badly want hillary's deleted emails recovered and, if appropriate, her indicted.  his aipac and ranger status give him clout in some circles.

so he has a purpose for a time, and no time like the present.

... agree - another Israel firster. The BS in the last line about Iran being the biggest sponsor of terror in the ME was the clincher. Iran is the only sane country in the region.

There's something very fishy about this.  The Jews want their whore Hillary in the White House far more than the Donald, and yet, their most obsequious Republican shabbos goy is threatening to destroy her with emails from Putin.  It doesn't add up... but, when you're playing cards with the devil, there really is no sanity nor rules of engagement.

This is bullshit.

Americans have lost all faith in the DOJ along with congress, media, president, FBI. They peddling as fast as they can to try and retain some sort of credibility. Obama runs the FBI.

The FBI does not work alone then ta's the case.

They work in tandem with the DOJ and all along Lynch was involved, she briefed Obama and he endorsed Hillary.

there will be no indictment, this story is full of shit.

criminals protect criminals, they don't prosecute them..ever.. way to much dirt piled way too high on all the "leaders' and the henchmen..


The system is now officially laid bare of the corruption and we the people have to be deaf ,dumb and fvkin blind to ever PRETEND it is not so..


Now, what comes next? My bet is these evil POS are going to all in and attack everyone and everything.

jeff montanye's picture

so you see there is a point to it.  if the fbi does indict hillary we will all have to reconsider the mean things we said about barack and loretta.

if not, then the populace continues with its education and the swell trump is surfing rises higher.

I think criminals dump the dirt on another criminals when they find it convenient to do so. Mostly when saving thier own ass or doing so becaused they got screwed in a deal, etc.

As is Tom Cotton.  He has some marginally good qualities (i.e. negative on The Beest, positive on the Donald), but he is the usual "Russia invaded Ukraine", "we need to do more in the Mid East" war-mongerng Republicanoid.


conscious being's picture

This "Iran is the greatest sponsor of terrorism in the world" trope is straight out of AIPAC. The US created Al Qaeda. The US created ISIS. The US and Mossad did 9/11 and invaded Iraq on trumped up nonsense, destroyed Lybia and murdered Gaddafi. Look in the mirror Tom Cotton. Leave Iran alone.
