Hillary's Seven Biggest Lies Refuted By The FBI, And The "Smoking Gun"

Tyler Durden's picture

When FBI director James Comey stunned America last week by exonerating Hillary Clinton for being "grossly negligent" in her abuse of professional duties, but not criminal, he opened up a whole new can of worms for the presidential candidate, namely that she had repeatedly perjured herself and lied to both Congress and the American people.

As a result, House Republicans said Thursday they would seek a new FBI probe whether Clinton lied to Congress about her handling of classified information, as well as whether she perjured herself under oath during an 11-hour testimony before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, That referral could lead to a new investigation, once again putting Clinton under the glare of the Justice Department.

It will hardly be difficult for an objective investigation to refute that Hillary lied: here is a brief summary of points which Hillary has made both on Capitol Hill and elsewhere, which the FBI report officially refuted:

"I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email”

As the Hill reminds us, this was one of first claims that Clinton made about her email setup, in a press conference at the United Nations shortly after it was revealed last year. We now know that more than 2,000 emails now contain information considered classified, but most of that was upgraded after it was sent.  According to Comey, a total of 113 emails contained information that was classified at the time the messages were sent or received. Among those are eight threads containing 22 emails classified as top secret — the highest tier of classification.  “There was classified material emailed,” Comey told the House Oversight Committee on Thursday. 

“It was allowed, but it was not a good choice”

Clinton has repeatedly described her email setup as permitted under the letter of the rules, though perhaps "unwise" as she put it in the middle of her Benghazi Committee testimony.  Both the State Department’s inspector general and the FBI disagree with that claim. The department’s internal watchdog released a harshly critical report earlier this year saying that the setup “would not” have been approved, had Clinton sought permission. Had employees within the FBI had a similar system, Comey testified this week, they might have been subject to a range of punishments up to and including being fired.  “You could be walked out or, depending on the nature of the facts, you could be reprimanded,” the FBI director testified in the House.However, the bureau would not have been able to prosecute them for federal crimes, he added. And there would be no punishments that could be handed down after the official had left office.

“I provided the department with all of my work-related emails, all that I had”

Hillary also claimed repeatedly that all of her work-related messages were contained within the roughly 30,000 messages given to the State Department in 2014. Another batch of a similar size was purely personal, she has said, and those messages destroyed.  This quote also came from the hearing in the Select Committee on Benghazi.  The FBI managed to recover some of those deleted emails, through inboxes of her colleagues and from electronic breadcrumbs on decommissioned severs that Clinton used.  According to Comey, “thousands” of those allegedly personal emails pertained to her work at the State Department. At least of them contained classified information.

“I thought it would be easier to carry just one device for my work and for my personal emails instead of two”

This is another early claim of Clinton’s, given during her March 2015, press conference explaining why she used a private server out of convenience. The rationale, she said at the time, was to use just her one BlackBerry device for all email traffic, instead of switching between multiple devices.  But in fact, Clinton used “multiple devices” throughout her four years as the nation’s top diplomat, according to the head of the FBI chief. “The FBI has the server that was used during the tenure of my State Department service”  The common understanding of Clinton’s setup is that she used a single server throughout all four years, as this quote during the Benghazi Committee hearing seems to assert.  But the FBI said that she used “several” different machines, which were taken offline as they became outdated and replaced.

“There were no security breaches”

It’s still unclear precisely what security mechanisms Clinton used to protect her servers from hackers, but her presidential campaign has repeatedly said that there is no evidence that the machine was hacked. The FBI was not able to uncover any evidence that hackers did break into her system, but that doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Recall that almost two months ago, infamous Romanian hacker Guccifer - who penetrated Sidney Blumenthal's email account- claimed he gained access to Hillary's "completely unsecured" server. "It was like an open orchid on the Internet," Lazar told NBC News. "There were hundreds of folders." It is strange that nobody has confirmed nor denied that claim to date. Additionally, hackers did break into the email accounts of people who had communicated with Clinton, Comey said, so they might have been able to map out her system as well.  “Given that combination of factors, we assess it is possible that hostile actors gained access to Secretary Clinton’s personal email account,” Comey warned.

* * *

But the biggest lie is one which Clinton not only repeated constantly before the FBI's report, but more disturbingly, after.

In fact, just yesterday in an interview with MSNBC, she once again said that “There was nothing marked classified on my emails, either sent or received.”


 

Here are the facts that we know of: at least three emails among the more than 30,000 reviewed by the FBI have included some markings indicating information was classified.  “There were a small number of portion markings on, I think, three of the documents,” Comey testified this week.  Those markings, however, were incomplete and according to the State Department made out of “human error.”  Classified documents are supposed to be marked as such at multiple points throughout the document, including at the top and next to each sensitive portion.  The three emails in Clinton’s inbox did not include the markings at the top of the page, just the ones next to particular sections. And the relevant portions did not actually contain classified information.

According to Comey, Clinton might have not understood that the section markings — upper-case “C”s in parentheses — indicating that the information was supposed to be confidential, the lower tier of classification. In other words, Comey suggests Clinton was too stupid to understand what she was doing, and as a result was jeopardising American lives and tactics not due to intent but because she was merely incompetent: “I don't think that our investigation established she was actually particularly sophisticated with respect to classified information and the levels and treatment,” the FBI director told the House Oversight Committee. 

Still, Comey told reporters this week that anyone in Clinton’s position should have understood that dozens of the messages contained sensitive information. “Even if information is not marked ‘classified’ in an email, participants who know or should know that the subject matter is classified are still obligated to protect it,” he said.

She repeated all of this during an interview with NBC's Lester Holt yesterday, as per the following clip.

There is just one problem with Hillary pushing the narrative that she was "too stupid" for her careless actions to have been the result of premeditation.

As we reported at the end of May when we revealed what Wikileaks then asked if "This Is The "Smoking Gun" Email That Will Bring Down Hillary", in one particular leaked exchange, Hillary makes it all too clear that not only did she know precisely what she was doing - and thus the implications of short-circuiting government regulations -  but just for the sake of convenience, she was willing to overrule the classified designation and flaunt government regulations, something he has consistently done during her public "servant" tenure.

The exchange in question with senior policy advisor Jake Sullivan is shown below (link):

 

 

Wikileaks called it a smoking gun, and, indeed, now that the Clinton probe is moving away from the FBI's subjective interpretation of whether she was criminally negligent, to a far more objective and simple evaluation if Hillary lied, including under oath, the e-mail chain above should provide investigators with all they need to make that very simple decision.

Also, keep in mind - there will be more.

 

Finally, as to whether the American people are willing to hand over the "launch codes" to a person who is willing to risk US foreign policy and jeopardize countless lives just to suit her own convenience, knowing full well the implications of such a move and then pretending she did not understand the severity of her actions, we do not pretend to know the answer.

We all know she's guilty.

What's so frustrating is her supporters don't care.

"Emailgate, Servergate, Benghazigate, Syriagate, Libyagate, ISISgate and Clinton Foundationgate all intersect to expose a massive and unparalleled conspiracy of criminality and corruption in the U.S. Federal Government."

Another vast right wing conspiracy, right Hitlery?

The Clintons are pathological liars and deserve to be locked up in prison for murder, treason, and purgery.

Add racketeering to that list. Any others?

She's been working with classified materials for over 40 years-  the "stupid" defense goes out the window here....

MissCellany's picture

Just that one email thread excerpted above shows TWO different clintonemail.com addresses for her -- hdr22 and hrod17. Wonder how many others she used too?

buyingsterling's picture

I thought she didn't use the .gov servers or email at all. If that's the case, how was most of the classified email handled?

Withdrawn Sanction's picture

Yep.  Her defense (and campaign) amounts to:  I made mistakes.  It wont happen again...now let me have the nuclear launch codes b/c... iwannabepresident.  

PT's picture

The nuke launch codes will be quite safe with her.  She'll hide them unclassified on her private server.  No-one will think to look for them there.  She'll store them securely with a private company that first has been carefully "vetted" by the HillaryBillary Foundation.

I used to think the smartest place to hide my keys was in the ignition. I wised up before I had to learn the hard way though.

She herself said she was "well aware of classification requirements" @1min 54 http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2016/jul/06/hillary-c...

The question is, when will the people revolt? 

t0mmyBerg's picture

The short answer is probably never, at least not while life is relatively comfortable.  And nearly 50% of voting morons will vote for her despite all of this just because.  The country formerly known as the USA is terminally fucked.

MANvsMACHINE's picture

The argument Hillary supporters spew is that Trump is racist. My response is that if he was racist, why in the 25-30 years he's been in the public eye has he never been accused of being a racist but all of a sudden, he now is?

Crickets...

Bumpo's picture

Saying NO to illegal aliens is not racist. Enforcing Border laws is NOT racist. Using "race" as an argument panders to Low IQ voters who latch on to knee-jerk social injustices whether they exist or not. This country has no obligation to take care of every Tom, Dick or Mohammad who crosses our border looking for a free handout. The US has 95 million out of work, and Vets who can't get Medical Treatment. Its not like this country isn't already plenty 'Diverse'.The Libtards act as if Trump can't wait to take away all the EBT cards and deport every person of color to South America. Never is this about dealing with a huge illegal immigration problem.

Dormouse's picture

I just need to interject this, enforcing border laws is now the duty of the UN and has been since 2014. Power ceded to a foreign NGO.

ATM's picture

There will be a revolt and it will be brought on by the government itself.

Vatican_cameo's picture

Technically you don't want a Revolt.  A Revolt is an uprising that loses.  A Revolution is an uprising that wins.  I'm going for the latter.

Dormouse's picture

Unfortunately, the only way I think WE win is by taking everyone back to the stone age. They can turn everything off for everyone except themselves and just starve, drone, and bomb-delivery-robot people till they comply or concede. I know it's a fucked up thing to say, but if the war against the people goes hot, everything needs to be EMPed or we turn into another Dumpistan patrolled by SkyNet.

It's worse than that cdevidal. Her supporters not only don't care, they are massively ignorant or so totally mind control programmed that they can't see how evil, how criminal, and how utterly power mad insanne she is.  Then there are those who are just like her psychologically, just pure evil beings.

Isnt there a law.... that says something along the lines of.... any public statement made by an official or ex official in govt about events that took place while that person was serving shall be taken into the public record as if under oath?

 

IE: If the president of the united states denied selling state secrets on the news and then later it was discovered he did indeed sell state secrets to china , that it would be considered as a lie under oath.

I remember reading something along those lines while delving about in the U.S. Code someplace.

Im like 70% SURE such a code/regulation/section exists and that Hillary could be prosecuted on that section alone.

I have read through fair chunks of the code out of curiosity years ago.

It may not be stated exactly like I said it , but more or less could be construed to mean the same thing.

innocent observer's picture

nope.

 

if so, the entire legislative branch would  go mute.

Dre4dwolf's picture

I mean you dont even need to go after her for lies only...

As far as I am concerned Hillary broke numerous laws that fall under these categories:

Illegal Use of Contributions

Illgal Use of official position for personal gain

Illegal offering or acceptance of value in exchange for favors

Illegal Use of Disclosure of confidential Information gained from her position (hedge funds/insider trading)

Illegal Use of political position/authority/official status to perform service to benefit private third parties

Illegal Use of govt funds to enter into private contracts

Illegal failure to state or note private interests or ties or positions of bias

Illegal forced reporting in order to influence political/legal/or other outcomes (public lies to influence outcome of her case)

Illegal bribery / money laundering through clinton foundation

Violations of ethical codes etc

Failures to disclose potential conflicts of interest

Mis-use of confidential information etc.

Blackmail and extortion

Corruption 

Soliciting through clinton foundation

 

etc.... etc....

Dont know the sections, but I know such sections exist somewhere in the legal mess of shit

Just some of the sections:

§22-712 https://beta.code.dccouncil.us/dc/council/code/sections/22-712.html

§22-3251 https://beta.code.dccouncil.us/dc/council/code/sections/22-3251.html

§22-3252 https://beta.code.dccouncil.us/dc/council/code/sections/22-3252.html

§22-704 https://beta.code.dccouncil.us/dc/council/code/sections/22-704.html

^ you could prosecute her on Federal/State/District levels all at the same time for petes sake.

Most laws in govt are cookie cutter, they just copy paste regulations under diff sections from state to state/federal branch to federal branch, so if you find a state law, more often than not there is a federal " clone " of that law.

 

I think you could pursue a case about the lies under Rule 902 " Evidence that is Self Authenticating " under the Federal Rules of Evidence, her statements / lies are a matter of public record and just as valuable as a statement under oath.

https://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/fre

Might even be a more strict interpretation or version of a similar law (again everything is bullshit copy paste in govt).

Evidence doesnt have to be under oath to generate cause and be presented , it just has to be confirmed as real.... videos of her speaking are real evidence. (this isnt exactly the code i am looking for, but its similar wording to what I remember), also I think you can use someones prior public statements as evidence.

She could be tried for deceptive practices etc. 

All you have to do to prevent a disaster in this country is get her to serve a fukn 6 month jail sentence.


optimator's picture

Of course she's guilty on all of those counts, and more.  That's exactly why they won't look at any of that.

And Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone...

blue51's picture

He wasn't involved at all.

Freddie's picture

I think Oswald thought he was playing counter intelligence for the agency.  He was just bein sheep dipped to be a patsy.

Poor guy was a Marine but probably too trusting and not that bright.  Sad.  He is remembered as an evil shit.   Too bad the real shooters did not get LBJ. LBJ aka George Bush's buddy and ziocon.

Shift For Brains's picture

There is almost no doubt at this point that Lee Harvey Oswald would be considered a hero in a country that had not totally lost its mind and its moral high ground. There are declassified documents that contain a dialog between the head of the Secret Service and CIA chief McCone in March of 1964. McCone has no trouble admitting that Oswald was used in Soviet counterintelligence work during the late 50s.

Does anyone in their right mind who lived through the Cold War period think a Marine could defect to the Soviet Union, then return, not be debriefed or tried and be out on the streets agitating for Communist Cuba in no time and not be a CIA asset? Jesus fucking Christ, how unbelievably stupid we are. You begin to see why the Overlords have contempt for the masses. It's like 75% of America can't even fucking think clearly enough to see right through that.

I heard Oswald, in his first public showing, say "I'm a patsy." He didn't say I did it, I didn't do it, down with capitalism, this one's for the Gipper or anything else. He said, "I'm a patsy."

He was a patriotic American who was used, tossed to the sharks, and executed for trying to be a good solider. His name has been synonymous with a heinous crime he thought he was sent in to keep from happening.

Like so much of the utter bullshit we have been fed all our sorry lives, we believed the liars and the utterly corrupt.

Drawing and quartering these sons of bitches would be too good. I hope those who have sold out our country are put on a spit and slow roasted for our entertainment and general edification.

blue51's picture

Yes, they played oswald like the dope he was.They even got him the job at the Book depository. I have seen pictures of LBJ standing next to Jackie Kennedy on Air Force One, being sworn-in as President. Hand raised, and he is looking over his shoulder and winking with Texas Rep. Albert Thomas . I wonder if LBJ drinking so heavily before his death, was due to remorse for all the death he caused.

css1971's picture

Because there are only 2 parties. Right?

Not enough people in the country even acknowledge the other parties and most of the parties are barred from even voting in most states because they refuse to put people on the ballots.
