News Summary from the Week that Was (20 – 26 October)

This is my weekly summary of news that the legacy media and Democrats have obfuscated for partisan political reasons. Once again, I am doing longer quotes of fewer articles this week, as I am still overseas. Here we go.

1. We’ve talked about this one before: corruption in US foreign aid. Foggy Bottom needs to be shut down, and all US foreign aid stopped because it is nothing but a piggy bank for the political class.

A senior Guatemalan official said his nation was aware President Donald Trump was going to cut funding to his nation, saying he understands the decision as the majority of funds designated to aid his nation’s poorest through development projects and other charities rarely reaches those who need it most. “To be honest with you, I don’t think most of that money is actually being properly used in our country, mainly in Guatemala,” Duarte told me. “A lot of that money goes to NGOs who spend it on mostly doing analysis and white papers sent studies. The money’s not really going towards the people. There’s no significant projects that really help us along those lines.”

Duarte noted that last week he had “a conversation with a couple of project managers from USAID that have worked here in Guatemala, they have worked in Haiti, they have worked in Africa, they have worked in Afghanistan and the issue here is that the projects are almost like pet projects for some political ideal.”

Read the rest here. If you think that’s the only country in which USAID dollars are wasted, then you’ve got another think coming! We need to shut down all US foreign aid and pour it in to rebuilding inner city slums in the United States, as well as to complete the Wall.

2. More great economic news in the Age of Trump that will never be discussed in the legacy media:

Latino-owned businesses are experiencing significant growth thanks to a strong economy, a Biz2Credit study found. Rohit Arora, Biz2Credit’s CEO, said Latino business owners are enjoying a 46 percent jump in revenue this year, which will bolster the nation’s thriving economy. [O]ur research finds that revenues of Latino-owned companies jumped 23% from 2017-18.

The fact is that Hispanics are flourishing in the Trump economy. Democrats asserting the contrary is a mere partisan talking point to try to deny Trump the Hispanic support he has earned and which may decide the presidential election outcome next year. Expect Democrats to increase their identity politics attacks in an effort to skew Latinos against Republicans over the next year and a half.

Read the rest here. This is more excellent evidence that the Trump economy is color-blind. His economic policies are working great! Tax and regulation cuts work every time they’re tried.

3. The “muh Russia” house of cards continues to fall apart. Here is the latest news courtesy of the British.

British intelligence told the FBI that dossier author Christopher Steele sometimes showed questionable judgment regarding investigative targets, according to a report that could preview some of the findings in a highly anticipated Justice Department watchdog report of FBI surveillance against the Trump campaign. Investigators with the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG) have asked witnesses about an assessment that MI6 officials provided the FBI regarding Steele, a former MI6 officer based in London.

The FBI’s handling of information from Steele is central to the OIG investigation into whether the bureau complied with laws and regulations in applications for Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrants against Carter Page, a former Trump campaign aide.  The OIG has also raised concerns, according to The Times, that the FBI overhyped Steele’s value as a confidential source in the applications to obtain the Page FISAs. The FBI relied heavily on information from Steele in the FISA applications, the first of which was granted on Oct. 21, 2016.

Read the rest here. Despite the Brits’ concerns, the tainted Obama FBI pressed ahead with the so-called Steele dossier. Little by little, the onion is getting peeled back.

4. Too bad, Obama and George Soros!

The Supreme Court, in another defeat for gerrymandering reformers, overturned a lower court’s ruling that Michigan’s electoral districts are overly partisan and need to be redrawn. Monday’s order follows a June decision from the nation’s top court that found that questions related to partisan gerrymandering are not under the jurisdiction of federal courts. The new order returns the case to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan. A three-judge panel in that court had ruled that 34 state legislative and congressional districts needed to be redrawn because they were designed to favor Republicans.

The Supreme Court’s ruling that federal courts cannot weigh in on partisan gerrymandering cases was blasted by activists, who have sought to advance their fight against politically-drawn maps in the courts. Former Obama Attorney General Eric Holder, chairman of the National Democratic Redistricting Committee, at the time called the decision one which “tears at the fabric of our democracy.”

Read the rest here. I’m liking it. Any time Obama and Eric Holder are thwarted by the USSC is a day to celebrate.

5. Judicial Watch continues to do the people’s business. This time it’s on Benghazi (plus more).

Judicial Watch today released new Clinton emails on the Benghazi controversy that had been covered up for years and would have exposed Hillary Clinton’s email account if they had been released when the State Department first uncovered them in 2014. The long-withheld email, clearly responsive to Judicial Watch’s lawsuit seeking records concerning “talking points or updates on the Benghazi attack,” contains Clinton’s private email address and a conversation about the YouTube video that sparked the Benghazi talking points scandal. “This email is a twofer – it shows Hillary Clinton misled the U.S. Senate on Benghazi and that the State Department wanted to hide the Benghazi connection to the Clinton email scheme,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Rather than defending her email misconduct, the Justice Department has more than enough evidence to reopen its investigations into Hillary Clinton.”

Judicial Watch’s discovery over the last several months found many more details about the scope of the Clinton email scandal and cover-up:

  • John Hackett, former Director of Information Programs and Services (IPS) testifiedunder oath that he had raised concerns that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s staff may have “culled out 30,000” of the secretary’s “personal” emails without following strict National Archives standards. He also revealed that he believed there was interference with the formal FOIA review process related to the classification of Clinton’s Benghazi-related emails.
  • Heather Samuelson, Clinton’s White House liaison at the State Department, and later Clinton’s personal lawyer, admittedunder oath that she was granted immunity by the Department of Justice in June 2016.
  • Justin Cooper, former aide to President Bill Clinton and Clinton Foundation employee who registered the domain name of the unsecure clintonemail.com server that Clinton used while serving as Secretary of State, testifiedhe worked with Huma Abedin, Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, to create the non-government email system.
  • In the interrogatory responsesof E.W. (Bill) Priestap, assistant director of the FBI Counterintelligence Division, he stated that the agency found Clinton email records in the Obama White House, specifically, the Executive Office of the President.
  • Jacob “Jake” Sullivan, Clinton’s senior advisor and deputy chief of staff when she was secretary of state, testifiedthat both he and Clinton used her unsecure non-government email system to conduct official State Department business.
  • Eric Boswell, former assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security during Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state, testifiedthat Clinton was warned twice against using unsecure BlackBerry’s and personal emails to transmit classified material.

Read the rest here. Time to reopen EVERY investigation of Shrillary: U-1, Benghazi, Clinton Foundation, email server, etc.

6. This is an incredible opinion piece by Victor Davis Hanson that needs to be read from stem to stern. Here are just a few excerpts:

[W]hy the unadulterated hatred? For the small number of NeverTrumpers, of course, Trump’s crudity in speech and crassness in manner nullify his accomplishments: the unattractive messenger has fouled an otherwise tolerable message. While they recognize in the abstract that the randy JFK, the repugnant LBJ, and the horny Bill Clinton during their White House tenures were far grosser in conduct than has been Donald Trump, they either assume presidential ethics should have evolved or they were not always around to know of past bad behavior first hand, or believe Trump’s crude language is worse than prior presidents’ crude behavior in office. But the NeverTrumpers are and remain a tiny segment of the electorate who have had zero effect in swaying Republicans and only marginal influence in persuading swing voters, in their new roles as occasionally useful naïfs of the hard Left.

Far more importantly, why do the media, academia, the entertainment and professional sports industries, the progressive Left, the administrative state, and most Democratic officeholders despise him so? His brashness bothers them of course. His quirky tweets and name-calling certainly. His loud rallies, his public put-downs, and his feuding are certainly not matched by those of past presidents. But the real source of their antipathy is his agenda.

Had Donald Trump in his first month as president declared that he was a centrist Republican —as many suspicious Never Trumpers predicted that he would, true to past form—and promoted cap-and-trade and solar and wind federal subsidies, tabled pipeline construction and abated federal leasing for gas and oil production, stayed in the Iran nuclear deal and Paris Climate Accord, appointed judges in the tradition of John Paul Stevens and David Souter, praised the “responsible” Palestinian leaders, “comprehensive immigration reform” as a euphemism for blanket amnesties, then Trump would be treated largely as a George H.W. Bush or George W. Bush: hated, of course, but not obsessively so.

More importantly, had Trump just collapsed or stagnated the economy, as predicted by the likes of Paul Krugman and Larry Summers, he would now be roundly denounced, but again not so vilified, given his political utility for the Left in 2020 as a perceived Herbert Hoover-esque scapegoat. Had Trump kept within the media and cultural sidelines by giving interviews to “60 Minutes,” speaking at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, bringing in a few old Republican hands to run the staff or handle media relations like a David Gergen or Andrew Card, Trump would have been written off as a nice enough dunce.

But Trump did none of that. So, the hatred of the media, the Left, the swamp, and the celebrity industry is predicated more on the successful Trump agenda. He is systematically undoing what Barack Obama wrought, in the manner Obama sought to undo with his eight years the prior eight years of George W. Bush. But whereas the Obama economy stagnated and his foreign policy was seen by adversaries and rivals as a rare occasion to recalibrate the world order at American’s expense, Trump mostly did not fail—at least not yet.

We are currently in an economic boom while most of the world economy abroad is inert. Had the economy just crashed as predicted, the Trump agenda would have been discredited and he would be written off a pitiful fool rather than an existential monster. Again, hatred arises at what Trump did even more than what he says or how he says it.

Read the rest of this great article here. VDH nails it yet again! They hate POTUS because he is rolling back their decades-long march toward globalism, as well as exposing them all for the grifters and globalists they are.

7. Next up, it’s about time that Brennan et all started feeling the heat!

The secretive Justice Department inquiry into the Trump-Russia investigation’s origins now includes former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok, and British ex-spy Christopher Steele. U.S. Attorney John Durham, whose investigative portfolio recently expanded to include events from the launch of the inquiry in 2016 through the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller in 2017, has taken overseas fact-finding trips. But Durham’s focus on the actions taken by specific individuals makes his mission look like it could transform into a criminal investigation. And the line of questioning Durham has taken with potential witnesses — some in line with claims made by President Trump and other Republicans — puts his efforts into sharper focus. Durham has not yet interviewed Strzok, McCabe, former FBI Director James Comey, or former FBI general counsel James Baker.

Durham is speaking to witnesses about Steele, the former MI6 agent whose dossier was used to obtain secret surveillance warrants against Trump campaign associate Carter Page, and Durham wants to know why the FBI used unverified information in its filings with the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court Durham also intends to interview CIA analysts and officials involved in the Russia investigation, prompting some to seek legal representation, and NBC News reported tension between the CIA and the DOJ over what classified information he should have access to.

Durham has already talked to two dozen current and former FBI agents as part of his effort. DOJ spokeswoman Kerri Kupec said the department was exploring the extent to which “a number of countries” played a role in the Trump-Russia investigation, and Barr and Durham reached out to the United Kingdom, Italy, and Australia.

Read the rest here. One could argue that this is all taking too long, but it’s also true that the little fish need to be rolled up before questioning the big fish, too. The fact that Brennan and other cabal members are squawking bigly in public these days is GOOD sign.

8. Here’s a story which spells political death for Democrats pursuing their fake impeachment on bogus charges. And watch what happens when AG Barr/USA Durham start the indictments!

A memo by the Republican National Committee (RNC) that contains internal GOP polling data shows the American public, even Democrat voters, are turning against the Democrat Party’s “impeachment inquiry” into President Donald Trump. The memo, obtained exclusively by Breitbart News, shows independent voters nationwide en masse oppose impeachment—with 54 percent opposed and only 34 percent in favor. “We have seen public polling drastically under sample Independent voters, which is one of the many reasons for so much incorrect public data over the past month,” the memo explains regarding the disparity between internal GOP numbers and public polling from news organizations and polling institutions.

What’s more, internal RNC polling data, according to this memo, shows Democrats have lost support among their own base significantly in just the past week. “Support among Democrats for the ridiculous attempt to remove the President from office is down 10 points over the past week,” the memo says. Among all voters, the memo says support for impeachment has dropped in the past week by five percent—a remarkable shift against the Democrats in just one week, while the president’s support levels have increased across the board, especially among Republicans, with whom he now enjoys a 90 percent approval rating. The memo notes that the RNC is closely tracking impeachment support and opposition with its own sophisticated polling method, which is more accurate than the public polling.

Read the rest here. I’ve been saying for years that the media polls are nothing but push polls that attempt to INFLUENCE public opinion in the favor of Democrat positions on the issues, not accurately REFLECT it!

9. Speaking of which (indictments), this news is already causing apoplexy among the culpable in the cabal (Clapper comes immediately to mind):

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s ongoing probe into potential FBI and Justice Department misconduct in the run-up to the 2016 election through the spring of 2017 has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation. One source added that DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s upcoming report on alleged FBI surveillance abuses against the Trump campaign will shed light on why Durham’s probe has become a criminal inquiry. Horowitz announced … his report would be available to the public soon, with “few” redactions. The investigation’s new status means Durham can subpoena witnesses, file charges, and impanel fact-finding grand juries.

Read the rest here. Could this be the drizzle that precedes the deluge? Could very well be!

Here are the honorable mentions this week:

And here’s the short summary of this week’s “feature articles”:

  • A senior Guatemalan official confirms rampant corruption in foreign aid to his country.
  • Latino-owned businesses are prospering BIGLY in the Age of Trump.
  • British intelligence is covering their tracks on the Steele front by stating to the FBI that he was often a source of “questionable intelligence.” (Duh!)
  • In a blow to Obama and Soros, the Supreme Court overturned a lower court’s ruling that Michigan’s electoral districts are overly partisan and need to be redrawn
  • Judicial Watch continues to break ground on Hillary Clinton’s private email account – which was known by many even back in the Benghazi days (2012)!
  • Victor Davis Hanson explained why the Uniparty types are so virulently anti-Trump (it’s because he’s been so successful in rolling back Obama’s – and their – globalist agenda).
  • USA Durham’s investigation into Trump-Russia origins now includes former CIA Director John Brennan, former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, former FBI special agent Peter Strzok, and British ex-spy Christopher Steele.
  • An RNC memo containing internal GOP polling data shows the American public (and even Democrat voters!) are turning against the Democrat Party’s “impeachment inquiry” into President Trump.
  • And the best news of all: the Durham probe has transitioned into a full-fledged criminal investigation.

I have to admit that I’m starting to feel a little bit giddy about all the good news that keeps coming out: the Ukraine star chamber is being discredited daily, some Republicans are finding their gonads (even if tiny), the media’s push-polls are failing to move the needle in the Democrats’ direction, Durham’s got a criminal investigation going now, the cabal are getting more unhinged by the day, the lefties on social media are apoplectic in defense of the cabal and Democrats, etc.

Life is pretty good – and it’s going to get even better as Horowitz’s FISA abuse report comes out in the days ahead! Stay tuned…

The end.

On the Insufferable Hillary Clinton

Westlake Legal Group I-can-beat-him-AGAIN-2-620x392 On the Insufferable Hillary Clinton Uncategorized security clearances security Liberal Elitism Hillary Clinton exoneration Hillary Clinton enabler Hillary Clinton email investigation Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption fake news democrats Crooked Hillary Clinton crime corruption Clinton email server clinton email scandal Clinton classified emails Bill Clinton

Hillary Clinton has been popping up a bit lately – on Twitter and also in carefully controlled public interviews and appearances. She told us the other day about doing another “listening tour.”

Hillary Rodham Clinton made listening tours famous, using them to build buzz for her New York Senate and presidential campaigns. Now, she’s on another. In an email to supporters, the 2008 and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate said, “I’d like to hear what you’re thinking.” While she isn’t talking about running for president a third time, Clinton said that she has been talking to people about key issues, including immigration reform and electing Democrats “at all levels” in 2020.

Read the rest here.

We’re supposed to believe that the consummate narcissist and grifter isn’t contemplating a re-run against President Trump in 2020? Let’s check out a couple of her recent statements. Here’s a laughable one.

Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she believes the “gutsiest” thing she ever did outside of public life was deciding to stay married to former President Bill Clinton.

Read the rest of her ridiculousness here. She’s also called President Trump an “illegitimate president” and a “corrupt human tornado.” And just the other day, she claimed during a PBS interview that she “could beat Trump again” in 2020 (plus other nonsense):

Asked about Trump’s tweet earlier in the day, which mockingly suggested she join the race and again bemoaned her missing emails, the former first lady and secretary of state expressed wonder at what she called Trump’s obsession with her. “You know, it truly is remarkable how obsessed he remains with me. But this latest tweet is so typical of him. Nothing has been more examined and looked at than my emails. We all know that. So he’s either lying or delusional, or both,” she said. “There was no subpoena, as he says in a tweet this morning. So maybe there does need to be a rematch. Obviously, I can beat him again,” she continued, before suggesting she was making the comment in jest.

Read the rest here.

The woman’s narcissism and hubris are insufferable, especially given that she is guilty of many crimes and has been enabled by federal law enforcement throughout her entire “career.” As a life-long grifter, she has always been about the money and has used her political station to accrue money via elaborate pay-for-play activities and/or just plain corruption. Whether it was cattle futures or foreign contributions laundered through the Clinton Foundation while she was Secretary of State, she has always been about accumulating the wealth to which she believes she – as a typical liberal elitist – is entitled. Hers was a classic coattails career – she was elected to the US Senate in New York not on her own merits but rather solely because she was the wife of a US president. It is perhaps the biggest joke there is to think that she is actually “smart.” The reality is quite the contrary.

She used the Clintons’ accumulated wealth to corruptly leverage and control various Democrats and apparatchiks during her run for the presidency in 2008. The notion that she was “owed” the nomination because she saved Bill’s presidency is humorous to contemplate but probably exactly what she thought. She has always been cursed (or blessed from my point of view) with a political tin ear which has been evident for all to see. A horrible and boring candidate capable of only spouting poll-tested platitudes, she was easily swamped by Obama during the 2008 Democrat primary.

I have always suspected that Obama was blackmailed by the Clintons into appointing her as his first Secretary of State. The Clintons could have made much mischief for Obama had Hillary not received that sinecure. Their purpose to see her made Secretary of State was two-fold: to give her some foreign policy credentials that she lacked for her next run for the Oval Office, and more importantly to have the US State Dept serve as a nexus for their foreign pay-for-play schemes.

Lost among the dross of the “muh Russia hoax” over the past 2.5 years is the fact that the Clintons received MILLIONS from….wait for it….the RUSSIANS courtesy of the Uranium One deal. And we’re supposed to just ‘fuhgeddaboudit” because “Orange Man Bad”? It’s one thing for her to have gotten away scot free with her pay-for-play schemes while supposedly “serving the people” while Secretary of State (she probably got a good laugh about twisting that phrase into “serving herself”). It’s quite another to have almost certainly traded some of the nation’s most precious secrets for some of that foreign cash. (They’ve been doing that for years. How do you think the Chinese jumpstarted their satellite and nuclear first strike capabilities?)

Even the Obama-appointed IC IG at the time (who now just happens to be a lawyer for the Ukraine leaker!) disclosed that Hillary’s server contained at least 22 Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI) emails on it, as well as dozens of lesser-classified emails – and that doesn’t include who knows how many other highly classified emails conveniently “destroyed” by her team of crooks in the early stages of the Mid-Year Examination (the FBI’s name for their faux investigation of her server).

While Loretta Lynch and James Comey effectively squelched the investigation of her server in 2016, largely thanks to Judicial Watch, there have been periodic new revelations that have cracked the façade carefully constructed by the Clinton Democrats and their media allies. For example, we learned some weeks ago that nearly 130 State Dept employees are likely to lose their security clearances (and may be subject to other well-deserved disciplinary actions?) because they knew about that illegal server and didn’t report it. Here is a report by RedState’s “streiff” toward that end. And the latest revelation is that Judicial Watch is likely to finally force depositions under oath by Hillary Clinton and her trusted aides after all this time:

On August 22, 2019, the court then ruled that Clinton and Mills had 30 days to oppose being questioned in person under oath by Judicial Watch related to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server. Additionally, Judicial Watch was granted seven new depositions, three interrogatories and four document requests. In granting the additional discovery, U.S. District Court Judge Royce C. Lamberth commented: “I’ll tell you everything they’ve discovered in this period raises serious questions about what the hell the State Department’s doing here.”

Read the rest here.

What makes me most furious about her crimes is not that she’s a life-long grifter and has been enabled throughout her grifting career by federal law enforcement who have looked the other way at every step of her journey. What is possibly even worse are her periodic in-your-face comments about her various crimes, e.g., the infamous “what difference at this point does it make” comment when under questioning during the Benghazi hearings. Or that the destroyed 30K+ emails only contained “yoga and wedding plans for Chelsea.” Or that she didn’t have any classified information on her email server at all! Let’s face it: the woman is a bald-faced liar – and is not very good at it, given her tin ear and body language.

Judicial Watch has been peeling back the onion that is Hillary’s shifting defense against going to jail for violating the Espionage Act and the statutes governing mishandling classified information. The tortured excuse offered by Comey to let her off the hook, i.e., there was no “intent” to disclose the classified information was a double lie, in my opinion. First of all, “intent” is nowhere in the statute; simple negligence resulting in the compromise of TS/SCI information is entirely actionable – there is no defense or escape (for average people). Second, I believe there was in fact intent on the part of Hillary and her minions, as some of those classified emails were purposely sold to our adversaries as part of her pay-for-play scheme. The woman had access to advanced technology secrets, information about US spies operating overseas, and other highly classified information, and we’re supposed to believe that someone who sold American uranium to the Russians would somehow not also sell those secrets? I suspect that what has been covered up about her pay-for-play scheme would shock the nation if all of the details were ever made public. The fact that – so far – only a few administrative acts have been taken against all of the perps is a travesty!

What also galls me, as a recently-retired long-time national security professional, is the insistence by her supporters – including those in the legacy media such as the Democrat hacks that now infest Fox News Channel – that she was thoroughly investigated and “exonerated” by Comey. First of all, they don’t understand the personal obligations of ANYONE with access to TS/SCI information. Second, they don’t understand that those accessing that information were required to sign nondisclosure agreements (NDA) that incur lifelong obligations. Third, each disclosure of a classified email is a separate instance that is punishable. The felonious actions don’t just get bundled together as a single felony. Fourth, anyone granted access (which means being cleared and also determined to have the “need to know” the specific info) is trained in the handling of – and the penalties for mishandling – classified information. Fifth, that training and the signed NDA obligate to report any known compromises of classified information, whether inadvertent or purposeful, including by anyone else. By the way, this is precisely why those State Department employees are losing their clearances; they did NOT report known/observed violations by Hillary and her immediate staff.

For all of these reasons, it should be remembered that ANYONE who claims that Hillary was “exonerated” is a bald-faced liar who either has no understanding of the governance, statutes, and obligations surrounding the handling of classified information or else actually understands the requirements and is simply lying for political purposes. Either way, that person is a complete liar on the subject.

I remain convinced that those 30K+ “lost” emails are in fact still available for analysis and subsequent legal action. The fact that Judicial Watch may finally force a real deposition under oath from Hillary and her lawyers is a promising sign that justice – although delayed – may finally be served. Believe me when I tell you this: Hillary, Cheryl Mills, Heather Samuelson, and the rest KNOW they’re guilty as sin and have to be sweating bullets about being forced to testify before officers of the court who haven’t been bought and paid for by the Clintons.

I have always wondered how the Clintons were seemingly always able to escape the hoosegow when the evidence of their corruption in the public record alone would have been more than enough to convict “regular people.” Given the corruption uncovered in DoJ and the FBI since President Trump was inaugurated, we know exactly how they have avoided the hangman over the years: they bought and paid for DoJ/FBI insiders to hijack and falsify investigations. They also bought and paid for a virtual army of media sycophants to spin things favorably to the Clintons and undermine investigations. True, some of these people, as sympathetic ideological allies to the Clintons, worked for “free.” Or rather for future consideration for jobs in a Hillary White House or elsewhere in a new Clinton administration). Until Hillary’s email server was uncovered by Judicial Watch and others, Loretta Lynch was on the path to becoming a USSC judge. Sally Yates was likely to become Hillary’s Attorney General for “services rendered,” and “Andy” McCabe would have probably relieved Comey as the FBI director. Just imagine the damage these lying corrupt-ocrats would have done in a Hillary administration!

I can assure you that the ONLY way Hillary and the others were let off the hook was through corruption, as they are all guilty of multiple counts of violating classified information handling statutes, as well as breaking their life-long NDAs. Those of us who have held TS/SCI clearances and understand the consequences of mishandling classified information are NOT going to let this subject go away until Hillary and the others are in jail. I pray that that smug look of that supremely insufferable woman will one day be wiped off her evil face!

The end.

[Note: a future article here at Red State will be a short tutorial on classified information that explains what classified information is, how it is to be protected, the obligations of everyone granted access to classified information, and the rules governing its handling under all circumstances.]

CHECKMATE: Documents Received From Tom Fitton’s FOIA Request Show Pretty Solid Evidence of ‘Cover-up’ By Hillary Clinton’s Minions

Westlake Legal Group checkmate-documents-received-from-tom-fittons-foia-request-show-pretty-solid-evidence-of-cover-up-by-hillary-clintons-minions CHECKMATE: Documents Received From Tom Fitton’s FOIA Request Show Pretty Solid Evidence of ‘Cover-up’ By Hillary Clinton’s Minions william barr Tom Fitton Special Counsel President Trump Platte River Networks Mueller Investigation Jeff Sessions Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Featured Story FBI and DOJ Corruption democrats David Kendall collusion Clinton email server BleachBit Allow Media Exception Abuse of Power

Thank goodness for Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton whose tireless pursuit of the truth has already exposed so much. His most recent Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request has provided us with 422 pages of FBI documents related to “Midyear Exam,” the FBI’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private server during her tenure as Secretary of State.

The server was managed by a company called Platte River Networks (PRN).

The FBI notes of a February 2016 interview with a PRN official are especially damaging to the former First Lady. The notes reference an email dated December 11, 2014 which reads “Hillary cover up operation work ticket archive cleanup.” Asked about the email by an FBI agent, the official said it was “probably related to change to 60 day [sic] email retention policy/backup,” but he did not  “recall the prior policy.”

The notes show that PRN  “gave someone access to live HRC archive mailbox at some point.”

Another says, “[Redacted] advised [redacted] not to answer questions related to conv [conversation] w/DK [David Kendall] document 49 – based on 5th amendment.” The subject said that “everyone @ PRN has access to client portal.”

“A December 11, 2014, Platte River Networks email between redacted parties says: “Its [sic] all part of the Hillary coverup operation <smile> I’ll have to tell you about it at the party”


Here are some of the highlights:

*An August 2015 email from Platte River Networks says: “So does this mean we don’t have offsite backups currently? That could be a problem if someone hacks this thing and jacks it up. We will have to be able to produce a copy of it somehow, or we’re in some deep shit. Also, what ever [sic] came from the guys at Datto about the old backups? Do they have anyway [sic] of getting those back after we were told to cut it to 30 days?”

*In March 2015, Platte River Networks specifically discusses security of the email server. [Redacted] is going to send over a list of recommendations for us to apply for additional security against hackers. He did say we should probably remove all Clinton files, folders, info off our servers etc. on an independent drive.

*Handwritten notes that appear to be from Platte River Networks in February 2016 mention questions concerning the Clinton email system and state of back-ups.

*The documents show Platte River Networks’ use of BleachBit on the Clinton server. The BleachBit program was downloaded from a vendor called SourceForge at 11:42am on March 31, 2015, according to a computer event log, and over the next half hour, was used to delete the files on Hillary’s server.

*The documents also contain emails and handwritten notes written in June and July 2015 from the Office of the Intelligence Community Inspector General discussing “concerns” over classified information. A redacted sender writes to State Department Official Margaret “Peggy” Grafeld that “inadvertent release of State Department’s equities when this collection is released in its entirety — the potential damage to the foreign relations of the United States could be significant. ICIG McCullough forwards the concern, saying: “Need you plugged in on this.”

Subject: Concerns about the HRC Review …

While working with this inspector, I have personally reviewed hundreds of documents in the HRC collection. I can now say, without reservation, that there are literally hundreds of classified emails in this collection; maybe more. For example, there are comments by Department staff in emails relating to the Wikileaks unauthorized disclosures; many of the emails relating to this actually confirm the information in the disclosures. This material is the subject of FOIA litigation, and the emails will now have to be found, reviewed and upgraded. Under the EO 13526, it would be in in our right to classify the entire HRC collection at the Secret level because of the “mosaic effect.” While there may be IC equities in the collection, I am very concerned about the inadvertent release of State Department’s equities when this collection is released in its entirety — the potential damage to the foreign relations of the United States could be significant.

Need you plugged in on this. Need to coordinate w/ State’s WB person.

*In an August 2015 internal FBI memo, the FBI notes that Hillary Clinton had signed a June 28, 2011, official correspondence advising all State Department employees that, “due to ‘recent targeting of personal e-mail accounts by online adversaries,’ State employees should ‘avoid conducting official Department business from (their) personal e-mail accounts.” The same FBI memo noted that Under Secretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy had sent a memo to all senior State Department officials on August 28, 2014, in which Kennedy included excerpts from the Foreign Affairs Manual that said that “classified information must be sent via classified e-mail channels only…”

*In an August 2015 classified memo prepared by the FBI Counterintelligence Division regarding the findings of the ICIG with respect to Hillary’s email server, the FBI noted that the ICIG had found that in a sampling of only 40 of Hillary’s 30,000 emails, four classified emails were found. A subsequent letter sent by Sen. Richard Burr (R-NC) to ODNI Clapper regarding this sample of Clinton’s emails noted that they were all classified at the secret level.

*The documents uncovered by Judicial Watch also show infighting between State Department Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy and the ICIG over the processing of the potentially compromised Clinton email communications.

*An August 4, 2015, interview by the FBI of State Department IG Steven Linick mentions an incident on “May 13, 2011 2:28 am Huma – Phil Rein potential hack.”

The drip, drip, drip of information that has been so frustrating for the last couple of years seems to have ended.

Of course, we have people like Tom Fitton, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) and so many others to thank and I am by no means minimizing the work they have done.

But, it’s been the change at the top of the DOJ that has broken the dam.

Many believed that new Attorney General William Barr would turn out to be just another creature of the Deep State. Instead, he has turned out to be just what the doctor ordered.

I wrote a post here about a meeting that took place shortly after Barr took office. Robert Mueller, along with several members of his team, including pit bull Andrew Weissman, met with Barr to request an extension to the cooperation agreement they had established with General Michael Flynn which they believed would lead to a new indictment.

Barr was said to have asked them, “Do you have something ironclad that you want General Flynn to be cooperating on? Do you have something in terms of probable cause moving toward an indictment or is this just a fishing expedition?”

One News America’s Jack Posobiec said:

Mueller and Barr held a conversation and they later determined that what they [Mueller] had wasn’t quite enough. Now some of the prosecutors working under Mueller like Weissman, did want to push forward and ask for more cooperation, but Barr said it wasn’t enough. Therefore, Mueller released a statement saying that officially, for the first time, that General Flynn’s cooperation agreement has been ended.

Realizing there was a new sheriff in town, Mueller wrapped up his investigation very shortly after this meeting.

My colleague, Streiff, wrote an insightful, analytical post here in which he draws a similar conclusion. Streiff wrote:

Let’s get some dates on the board. Barr was nominated on December 18. The Senate Judiciary Committee voted him out on February 7. He was confirmed on February 14.

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker proclaimed the Mueller investigation was “close to completed” on January 28. The first use of the phrase “winding down” in conjunction with the Mueller investigation appears February 6 as the first prosecutor leaves the investigation. On March 14, Andrew Weissmann left the investigation and resigned from the Justice Department.

The appearance is that the nomination of Barr was the catalyst for ending the Mueller investigation.

Barr is providing something the DOJ desperately lacked during the Jeff Sessions era. Leadership.
