"We Just Got A Tip" - Email Leak Reveals More Collusion Between State Department And Hillary Campaign

Tyler Durden's picture

A new Podesta email released by WikiLeaks today reveals further direct coordination between the State Department and the Clinton campaign during what should have been a confidential investigation.  The following email chain starts with a note from Clinton Deputy Communications Director, Kristina Schake, on April 9th, 2015 informing Mook, Palmieri, Mills, Podesta and Samuelson that "Someone here just got a tip that the State Department may be planning to release her Benghazi emails tomorrow or Monday."

The emails further reveal a continued coordination between the State Department and the Clinton campaign with Heather Samuelson providing frequent status updates over the course of the following week.

As legal experts pointed out previously, ultimately another month passed before the State Department finally released the first Clinton emails on May 22, 2015.  It is unclear what accounted for the delay.  It is also extremely unclear why Samuelson would have received frequent updates from the State Department on the status of ongoing FOIA requests as she was no longer employed by the State Department in 2015.

WikiLeaks - DOS Tip


It's also unclear, and curious, why all of the controversial conversations, like this one, always seem to be conducted through gmail rather than official campaign email addresses.

This latest discovery comes after we first reported on Monday another potential instance of the State Department seemingly "tipping off" the Clinton campaign on the timing of FOIA releases (see "Leaked Email Reveals Potential Collusion Between State Department And Clinton Campaign"), and also potentially explaining why Heather Samuelson got DOJ immunity, something which the House Judiciary Committee announced late on Tuesday it demands an Inspector General probe into.

In the following email dated March 17, 2015 disclosed today by Wikileaks, we find troubling details of the internal State Department process, which somehow made its way to Samlueson with details so nuanced it may only have come as a result of direct communication between the State Department (or DOS as Samuelson calls it) as Hillary's young confidant, and which in turn she promptly conveyed to her team, regarding the FOIA request, in what appears to be a material breach of confidentiality. This is what she said :

DOS is soon releasing another round of documents and email traffic (not hers) in response to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request on DOS's process for reviewing WJC’s speaking engagements.   


It’s 116 pages with approx. 50 sponsor/subsponsor requests. No objections by DOS in this batch, but some lengthy internal discussions among DOS officials that I highlighted below.  


There is one request where speaking fee would have been paid by Turkish govt -- WJC's office declined this.   And one speaking engagement with fee from Canadian government, which he did do.  


Let me know if you have any questions.

We have one question, Heather: is this legal, and are emailed exchanges such as this one why you received DOJ immunity in exchange for "turning over your laptop"?

From the original email, bolding ours.

All --  DOS is soon releasing another round of documents and email traffic (not hers) in response to Judicial Watch’s FOIA request on DOS's process for reviewing WJC’s speaking engagements.  


It’s 116 pages with approx. 50 sponsor/subsponsor requests.   No objections by DOS in this batch, but some lengthy internal discussions among DOS officials that I highlighted below. 


There is one request where speaking fee would have been paid by Turkish govt -- WJC's office declined this.   And one speaking engagement with fee from Canadian government, which he did do. 


Let me know if you have any questions.

In light of the ongoing speculation that there may have been collusion between the DOJ and Bill Clinton (and thus Hillary), following the infamous "tarmac encounter", where Bill and Loretta Lynch spoke for 40 minutes about "Bill's golf game and grandchildren", the discovery that there was collusion between the State Department and Hillary Clinton, who formerly headed it, seems like a potential conflict of interest to us.

So it's down to voting for the Pussy grabber, vs. voting for the Cunt...

Anyone can be a C_nt. But only a man of confidence can reach out for what they want and Grab it!

MissCellany's picture

Just realized I should probably clarify. I'm more than happy to vote for Donald the Pussy Grabber over Hillary the Cunt.

As I commented somewhere on ZH last week, I am rather fond of receiving a *good* pussy-grabbing. But never, never, will I vote for that Cunt.

It's all sanctimonious horseshit and hypocrisy. These are the people who are responsible for destroying the moral and social standards of our "Leave it to Beaver" American Culture starting over 50 years ago. From Elvis' hips to Jeannie's belly button to Sarah Silverman spreading her ass cheeks and saying as a Joo she'd love to kill Jesus again; tiptoeing us towards a completely amoral society with zero standards except to shame the bigots who dare criticize someone else's profanity. Hillary has one of the foulest mouths of all, not just amongst women. She has made an art of vulgar, profanity laden statements towards subordinates in order to give the appearance she is the meanest, toughest guy in the room. Because as we all know, men say dirty, nasty shit to each other, not just about women, when we are in private and because that macho attitude holds a following or coalition and prevents dissent. Hillary wishes she had a dick, but she don't; but she can sound like one of the boys. Honestly, I don't give a fuck what people say in private so long as it's not seditious or treasonous. These people are so corrupt and this election is showing the unprecedented the level of criminality in Washington amongst the politicians, media, and NGOs. When everyone, EVERYONE, in a position of "authority" around the world says Trump is unqualified, or dangerous, or what have you, I say—that's my man! Fuck these people, they are terrified. Everyone needs to go vote no matter how bad the polls or media say it looks. If it was a purely rigged election we wouldn't be witnessing the burning of all credibility by the Ministry of Propaganda and our Ruling Elite.

What went on in that White House when Bonnie & Clyde Clinton were there was unbelievably disgusting:

We're not talking secretly recorded verbal innuendos here, we're talking out and out physical sex acts on an intern in the Oval Office.

That these two misfits are attempting to crawl back there once more on their bellies to potentially terrorize the American people again is absolutely incredible.  The US spent muti-millions prosecuting these people.  WE DON"T HAVE IT TO SPEND ON THEM ANYMORE.

Wish Trimp would refer to them as this couple in next debate!

Don't forget they literally stole the artwork off the walls of The White House and vandalized every single computer in the building by removing the W key. Here's a question Martha Ratface should have asked: "Bitch, are you going to let Bubba dick bimbos in the People's House again under your watch?"

RiverRoad's picture

Soooo many questions Martha Ratface could have asked. 

Much of what Bonnie & Clyde Clinton stole from the White House when they left, they were ultimately forced to return.  One of the items not returnable was an antique vase that Hillary threw at Bill's head in one of their screaming fights which was smashed.  BTW the day they were moving in, she threw a lamp at his head.  A secret service agent has written a book about this lovely, so "presidential temperament" of theirs.

Who knows?  With the flagrantly open marriage those two have, we'll probably see threesomes in the White House this time, and that will just be the least of it.

With thousands of dead people confirmed as active registered voters ib virtually every battleground state... I fear the vote will be rigged therefore it will be unconstitutional.

Julian Assange, you better call your mommy and say goodbye because you are about to get a special delivery HILLfire Missile from Dear Leader Hillary. Since you've already read her emails, Dear Leader decided she will send this message to you AIRMAIL by drone, you albino freak. Don't worry, the Ecuadorians will scrape your pasty white skin off the walls and send it back to mommy for you. Hail Dear Leader Hillary! May Astarte be avenged!!

This WL cite came from a .gov account, but look at the content: it is just a silly copy/paste of an editorial column from some crappy CNBS article written by the Governor of Michigan. This particular cite is not collusion and not terribly meaningful. A big yawn.

It's US Tax dollars, the White House, Congress, Senate, local town Government are not supposed to use their resources to work on campaigns. Its illegal and punishable by Jail time. Highly illegal! Doesn't matter on the content. Its actively working for the campaign on a Gov't system.
