Is Information Deliberately Being Withheld From President Trump?

Is Information Deliberately Being Withheld From President Trump?

This past weekend, the New York Times put out a piece about U.S escalation in the cyber ware with Russia. The Times not only relied on leaks of what has to be highly classified information, but appeared to also take a shot at President Trump, claiming that long time professionals in the military were reluctant to keep the President informed about matters he has every right and need to know. You can read the whole thing here.

My colleague Elizabeth Vaughn wrote an excellent piece regarding the Times poor excuse for journalism, calling out the leaks of classified information, but more importantly, anonymous claims that critical information was being withheld from President Trump. In her words

Even though USCC acted legally and the move certainly boosts U.S. national security, if the article is correct, it’s disturbing that Trump was not briefed.

The most important reason, and also the most obvious, is that he is the Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces of the United States.  He is responsible for making all of the decisions in the event of a nuclear escalation and he must be kept aware of exactly what our capabilities are.

Secondly, if it is known that a President’s underlings feel free to make consequential decisions without consulting him, he appears weak. And as much as that fills liberal hearts with glee, it hurts America.

I agree with my colleague, especially the part about the New York Times spinning this story. However, there is likely another reason that President Trump wasn’t briefed on each operation. He didn’t want to be. The New York Times writers and for sure most leftists would be unfamiliar with—how Senior Commanders and successful CEO’s operate. Such people surround themselves with competent people and give them guidance and boundaries to work within.

Such leaders don’t require subordinates to come running to them for permission to handle routine tasks already delineated in their mission orders. In fact, if a subordinate needs too much additional guidance, he is replaced fairly quickly. Once an operation is put in place, the only reason to directly inform the President, would be if some contemplated action was outside the scope already authorized or a particular action had generated a result (good or bad) that might require Presidential intervention, decision and/or rethinking the entire project.

I can’t speak for the Senior Executive Service (SES) civilians in the Pentagon. However, the folks in uniform tend to believe the old adage, “Bad news doesn’t get better with age.” I find it highly unlikely that the Green Suiters are deliberately hiding operations from the President. I find it far more credible that President Trump’s CEO management style fits right in with the way a Military General Staff and subordinate commands work.

The New York Times likely cannot understand this. Like most on the left (and more than a few on the right) they look at everything through a political lens. Before a decision is made, it must be polled and focus grouped. Often, even very minor decisions are withheld to the highest level.

On the other hand, CEO’s and Military Officers don’t have time for that. These high-functioning leaders recruit and train capable subordinates, give them mission-type orders and then get the hell out of the way. My take is that the New York Times can’t recognize a well organized operation, because it has likely never experienced one and so, is spinning by means of unsubstantiated rumor and innuendo.

President Trump Plans to Live Tweet the Democratic Debates, Liberals Lose It

 

Westlake Legal Group AP_18271664262015-620x419 President Trump Plans to Live Tweet the Democratic Debates, Liberals Lose It President Trump Live Tweet Democratic Debates Joe Scarborough Front Page Stories Featured Story donald trump democrats Bernie Sanders Allow Media Exception 2020

During an interview on Tuesday, MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell told Bernie Sanders that President Trump plans to live tweet next week’s Democratic debates. “The president is talking about live tweeting, (eye roll, sigh, chuckle) while you guys are on the debate stage. What is your reaction to that?”

Obviously, Crazy Bernie has been practicing ahead of his upcoming debate and it shows. As if a button has been pressed, Sanders recites the standard, DNC-approved list of Trump pejoratives.

He tells Mitchell, “Well, I’m surprised that he has the time to tweet. I thought he’d be watching, you know, some Fox TV program. Uh, look. He can tweet all that he wants to tweet, uh, but let me just say this. You have a president, who, despite what one of his supporters mentioned a moment ago, is in fact a pathological liar, he is a racist, he’s a sexist, he’s a homophobe. And he is a religious bigot.”

Bernie added that Trump is also a phony who said he would stand for the working class and, of course, “he lied.” He criticized Trump’s cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security as well as his tax cuts and offered up statistics which, to my ears at least, sounded like exaggerations.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough wasn’t happy about Trump’s plan either and called on all “networks not to report his tweets till the next morning. He asked, “Are they going to be manipulated by Donald Trump like we’ve all been manipulated for three years?”

Trump has a great sense of humor and can be very, very funny. Imagine what he’ll have to say when Pocahontas is asked about her Native American roots. Or when Biden explains how he threatened to withhold U.S. aid to Ukraine if the government didn’t fire the prosecutor who was about to investigate his son – and demanded they do so before he boarded his plane in six hours. There is so much material here.

Rush Limbaugh finds it to be “hilarious.” He said:

I don’t know if you’ve heard this. President Trump has announced (laughs) he is going to live tweet the Democrat debates. Folks, this is going to be revolutionary.

And there you have it. Racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe, the cliche, that’s all they’ve got about every one of us, folks. And so Crazy Bernie is asked by Andrea Mitchell, the president is gonna live tweet the debate, and he just loses it! He can’t stand it! The Democrats are not supposed to get that kind of scrutiny. Crazy Bernie is used to Democrat debates being on Saturday nights, when Hillary Clinton was the opponent, so that nobody saw them. And now he’s just beside himself that with Trump live tweeting, Trump is going to beat the Drive-By Media in characterizing and creating narratives. And they can’t stand it!

A source told The Hill that Trump’s top advisors oppose the idea for the valid reason that it will show his hand to the Democrats. His reactions will “provide insight for Democrats as to which issues the president sees as sensitive ahead of the general election.”

Unpresidential? Probably. A good idea? Probably not. Comedy Gold? Definitely.

Media Hacks Rushed to Defend AOC’s Ridiculous Concentration Camp Comments, Then Auschwitz Responded

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez – Caricature by DonkeyHotey, licensed under CC BY-SA 2.0/Original

If you’ve been on political Twitter today, you’ve probably seen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s crazy comments on border detention facilities being “concentration camps.” She’s since doubled and tripled down on them.

This makes no sense for so many reasons that it’s hard to articulate. No one is forcing people to cross our border illegally and they are free to leave at any time. Illegal immigrants in our detention facilities are not being forced to work or being gassed with their families. Everyone being held at the border are being given due process and will have their claims adjudicated. There’s essentially no comparison at all to any historical definition of a concentration camp. If anyone commits a crime in this country, they are typically confined for some period of time while their case is processed. That’s all that’s happening at the border. How any of this is controversial, I don’t know.

No mind though. The white knights in the media rushed to defend AOC anyway because that’s what they do.

Here’s Dave Weigel from The Washington Post.

She was just talking about the Boer War you guys! Yes, I’m sure AOC, who’s knowledge of history ends with the results of last year’s American Idol, was actually giving a call back to a little known war in South Africa. That’s the ticket.

The level of gaslighting being presented by Weigel in that tweet was hard to top, but MSNBC’s resident historian managed it.

“ACKSHUALLY…”

Telling others to learn “some actual history” while defending a ridiculously a-historical assertion is the most Chris Hayes thing ever.

Even though it’s apparent that AOC meant the Holocaust, we don’t even have to speculate. Why? Because she specifically cited “never again,” which is directly referencing the Holocaust. There is no question she was making a comparison to Nazi concentration camps and it’s ludicrously dishonest to suggest otherwise.

Meanwhile, press outlets like The Washington Post decided the real story here was that Republicans were upset, because that’s always the story right?

Then something amazing happened.

The actual Auschwitz Museum chimed in and made a polite suggestion to Chris Hayes, CNN’s K-File, and others who rushed to defend AOC’s comments. It’s one of the most incredible “I’m not owned” moments in Twitter history.

I suspect “concentration camp” Twitter won’t end here though. The media are already running to post op-eds by “historians” letting us know that border detention facilities are in fact just like Nazi death camps, just at an earlier stage. I guess the CBP are the Waffen SS in this scenario, underhandedly building infrastructure leading toward the extermination of illegal immigrants? It’s all so crazy that I’m not even sure what else to say about it.

We’ve reached a level of absurdity in our political discourse that’s hard to fathom.

Joy Behar Compassionately Tells Kyle Kashuv to Take a Year off From College to “Contemplate Your Racism”

Westlake Legal Group JoyBeharTheView-620x347 Joy Behar Compassionately Tells Kyle Kashuv to Take a Year off From College to “Contemplate Your Racism” The View Television Social Media progressives Politics North Carolina mob rule mob Kyle Kashuv joy behar Guns gun control Front Page Stories Florida Featured Story Education democrats Culture Allow Media Exception

Co-host Joy Behar speaks on “The View” – 6/18/19. Screen grab via ABC.

Since the news broke of Parkland shooting survivor and gun rights activist Kyle Kashuv’s excommunication from attending Harvard because of racist and anti-Semitic remarks he made online at age 16, there have been a lot of varying opinions expressed on the subject.

Perhaps no opinion was more anticipated than that of “The View’s” Joy Behar, who weighed in on the controversy today in exactly the manner you’d expect from a compassionate liberal.

Scott Whitlock at Newsbusters sets the scene:

Discussing the teen on Tuesday’s show, the liberal Behar unleashed: “[People] say that young people do these kind of things, that they need to get a lesson. They need to take a lesson from this. Well, this is the lesson. The lesson is you’re not getting into Harvard, okay? Take your gap year to contemplate your racism. That would be a productive year.”

Fake Republican Ana Navarro wasn’t much better:

ANA NAVARRO: Moral character matters, and what can I tell you? Kyle, the bad news is you can’t go to Harvard if you’re a sexist misogynist but you can grow up to be president.

BEHAR: He could go to Trump University. They would take him.

Not mentioned: He maybe could become the governor of Virginia, if only he was a hypocritical Democrat and gun control activist.

Watch video of the segment below:

Just spitballin’ here, but can we get Behar to take a year each off from “The View” for all of the mistakes she’s ever made? Pretty please? I don’t think it’s too much to ask her to hold herself to the same standards to which she holds conservatives

In the interests of fairness and consistency, of course.

Former Republican Congressman Compares Parkland Survivor Kyle Kashuv to a School Shooter

Rep. David Jolly, R-Fla., answers questions from reporters, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, June 14, 2016, after members of the House of Representatives received a closed intelligence briefing from FBI Director James Comey and Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson on the mass shooting at an LGBT club in Orlando. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Some exchanges just make you shake your head and this is one of those.

David Jolly is a former Republican Congressman from Florida who lost to Charlie Crist in 2016. He has since championed himself as a Trump critic and made that the staple of his political personality. After contemplating another run for Congress in 2018, he decided against it, citing that he wanted to focus on seeing the President ousted via a primary challenger in 2020. Jolly would eventually leave the Republican party in 2018 and has become a frequent guest on MSNBC.

I’m not going to spend five hundred words running down the wisdom of Jolly’s moves because it’s been done to death. What I will say is that some Trump opponents handle that transition better than others.

Here’s some evidence that Jolly isn’t handling it all that well.

I’m going to use NewsBusters for the transcript here, along with their emphasis added.

The former Republican congressman immediately denied that there was anything political with this decision, also swiping at Trump: “I don’t….I think this is the perfect story for our time. Within our culture, we have leaders who are given greater permission to racist statements…They are given greater equity. It is important for Harvard to say, no the in our community.”

He’s clearly taking a shot at Donald Trump here. What is Jolly even talking about? I’ve seen no evidence that any leader has been given greater permission to make “racist statements.” Quite the contrary in fact.

Secondly, the idea that Harvard is making a virtuous stand here is laughable. Harvard has had slave holders at their college. They’ve got former criminals there right now. But Kyle Kashuv is a bridge too far? Give me a break. This is blatantly political.

Kyle Kashuv is not a racist. He’s a kid who was trying to out shock his friends in a private conversation and said something dumb. Far be it from me to chastise a 16 year old for being stupid. That’s pretty much the definition of being 16. There is zero evidence that Kyle is actually prejudice or has ever acted in a discriminatory manner. What kind of society says to a teenager that they are irreparably damaged because they made some bad jokes to their friends in high school?

Such standards aren’t just disgusting, they are dangerous. Who gets to decide who’s banished now and how does this not lead the furthering of tense divisions in our country?

Jolly then got into the meat of his comments and things got really nasty.

[T]hese are the social media postings we see of a shooter and ask where were the signs?... We see a shooter. We go back and look at social media posts. This is exactly what we see...These are the exact posts we find of people, particularly those who advocate for stronger gun rights who has been given an audience with the president of the United States in the oval office, by Nikki Haley as well, vice president Mike Pence, an invited guest to a rally to speak for Matt Gaetz and Ron Desantis, who was a speaker at the NRA recently.

What in the actual…

It’s one of those quotes where you have to double check that it’s real. But it’s real and it’s in the video above. David Jolly compares a school shooting survivor to a school shooter. His basis? That Kashuv supports the 2nd amendment and once made some immature jokes with friends. On what planet does any of that correlate to shooting up a school? Because it’s certainly not this one.

Furthermore, even if you believe this nonsense, why in the world would you think it’s ok to say on national TV? Where’s the decency?

I’m old enough to remember when Laura Ingraham was boycotted for taking a shot at David Hogg following one of his many profanity laced attacks on conservatives. In that case, at least there was some provocation given Hogg’s insertion of himself into a clearly political arena. Here, we have a shooting survivor being equated with a school shooter over a situation that wasn’t even political. Worse, outside of right-wing media, no one in the press is batting an eye. It’s astonishing and gross.

I don’t know what Jolly was thinking here but I can speculate. As I said at the beginning of this article, some Trump opponents handle the transition better than others. Max Boot would be an example of someone who handles it horribly. They get these big media jobs and there’s a pervasive pressure to tell their new liberal audiences what they want to hear. Jolly seems like a guy who’s just slipped to far and he’s playing to the crowd.

If you want to claim to be principled, the way to do that is not to let your opposition to Trump drive you into saying insane things. Jolly crossed the line today and he deserves to be condemned for it.

Pelosi Won’t Pull the Trigger on Impeaching Trump, But She’s Happy to Fundraise on Removing Him

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) incurred the wrath of liberal Twitter today with a tweet from her campaign account soliciting donations for her 2020 re-election, shedding some light on a growing division among Democrats on how best to oppose President Donald Trump. The tweet said it was “sad” that Trump “doesn’t know right from wrong,” and then, “It’s time for Trump to go.”

Along with the tweet was a link to Pelosi’s fundraising page on the ActBlue platform, along with a graphic asking “WANT TO REPLACE TRUMP IN 2020?”

Visitors to Pelosi’s ActBlue page saw the following message, along with a contribution form and the standard required campaign finance disclaimers:

Replace Trump in 2020

Trump is indifferent to any sense of ethics and to the very core of who we are as a country. It’s time for him to go.

Chip in now to help replace Trump and expand the Democratic House Majority.

Pelosi, who has led her caucus for years through Democratic majorities and minorities, and under presidents of both parties, has often been viewed as a savvy political strategist. This fundraising tweet, however, met with a loud and swift backlash as a message that missed its mark.

As Speaker of the House, she has broad powers to call for Congressional hearings and investigations, both directly and through the various Democrat-controlled House committees, the chairs of which were all appointed by her. But as month after month of Trump’s presidency has gone by, Pelosi has made headlines for her steadfast refusal to initiate impeachment hearings, despite the exhortations of many Democratic presidential candidates, members of Congress, and other liberal activists.

Several political commentators from both sides of the aisle have observed that Pelosi could very well call for aggressive investigations into various Trump campaign and administration matters, but not call them “impeachment” hearings at the outset, as a sort of “impeachment lite” strategy. Thus far, she has declined to pursue even that route.

Pelosi is undoubtedly aware of the risk unsuccessful impeachment proceedings pose for the party opposing the president, and with the Senate still under Republican control and no realistic chance of enough GOP defectors to remove Trump from office, any steps in this direction are likely to galvanize Trump’s base as the 2020 elections approach.

Still, political reality is little consolation for a Democratic base that demands increasingly extremist action. The clown car of Democratic presidential candidates have spent more time cheering on radical ideas like slavery reparations, abolishing the entire Immigrations and Customs Enforcement agency, or packing the Supreme Court, than they have proposing tax reforms or other basic policies that realistically stand a chance of becoming law.

So we have the left demanding impeachment like Veruca Salt stomping her feet and demanding one of Willy Wonka’s squirrels. Never mind that the backlash to a failed impeachment attempt threatens to drag down Democratic candidates like those squirrels dispatched a certain spoiled little girl.

At the time this article was written, the @TeamPelosi tweet had nearly two thousand replies. Scrolling through them shows the overwhelming majority asking her to consider impeachment hearings, or just flat out demanding that she start them.

One of the top-liked responses was posted by Mckayla Wilkes, a Maryland congressional candidate whose bio states that she is a “Progressive primary challenger of Steny Hoyer to represent MD-05.” Wilkes slammed Pelosi’s donation request as “making no sense,” considering Pelosi’s refusal to bring impeachment hearings.

Like all House members, Pelosi has to have her name on the ballot every two years, and will need to fundraise to support her 2020 re-election efforts. But unless and until she’s willing to give Democrats their impeachment squirrel, she might be better advised to avoid this type of messaging.

Intolerant Activist Who Kicked One Pro-Life Demonstrator & Nearly Pushed Another Into Traffic Gets Hammered in Court

In life, a traditional bit of good advice is, “Don’t act like an idiot.”

To be fair, everybody acts like an idiot; we just can’t help ourselves. The planet’s crawlin’ with over 7 billion idiots.

But there’s a level of idiocy that transcends the norm — the physical acting out of being an idiot: the idiot who gets mad and peels out in their vehicle to express attitude, inadvertently crashing it; the idiot who throws punches at the Walmart cashier because they’re having a bad day. Or — to use a real-life example I’ve covered — the Dollar General customer who stabs a fellow patron because he points out that she farted (please see here).

In October, Jordan Hunt became one such exceptional idiot when he roundhouse-kicked peacefully-demonstrating Marie-Claire Bissonnette…like a huge idiot.

Ladies and gentlemen:

Marie’s had a hard time as a pro-life advocate:

“I’ve had teenage boys throw rocks at me, I’ve also had men saying, ‘How would you like it if I raped you?”

And Jordan’s had a hard time not being a…well, here he is again, attacking someone and trying to take their sign, while — it appears — nearly pushing them into traffic (language warning):



As for his inclination toward tyrannical taekwondo, the woman-abusing, violent hairdresser got fired from his job after the stunt.

Additionally, the goob was hit with eight counts of assault and seven counts of mischief.

From Newsweek:

The police statement also alleged that Hunt was involved in a similar incident in August. While riding on a bicycle, Hunt allegedly approached a group of activists in Toronto and tried to take away one of their signs. When the protestors fought back, Hunt pushed one of the women into a pole. He then fled the scene.

Police have charged Hunt with one count of assault for his actions in August—bringing the total assault charge count to nine. The September incident took place near High Park-Swansea. The August incident took place at the intersection of Dufferin St and Dundas St West.

Speaking to the Toronto Sun last week, 27-year-old Bissonnette said she did not see the physical attack coming. “He kicked me in the shoulder, my phone went flying,” Bissonnette said. “I start shouting for someone to call police and before he runs away, he goes up to me and I had a ribbon on my jacket indicating [I was] the leader, he tore it off my chest.”

Well, now a judgement’s been meted. For his intolerance of opposing views — otherwise known as “bigotry” (see more from the Left here) — Jordan’s been sentenced to 8 months probation and ordered to stay 100 meters (roughly 330 feet) from pro-lifers. The restraining order seems like a good idea.

From LifeSite:

Hunt, 27…apologized to “everyone I hurt by my actions” in an undated letter which Justice Michael Block read out to the court.

“Everyone should have the right to be without fear when they act on their beliefs. I sincerely regret that I chose such a poor way of expressing myself,” wrote Hunt.

“My behavior was foolish and unacceptable, and I wish to apologize to the people I hurt. I want them to know that I learned a lot since these incidents. This behavior will not be repeated and I am truly remorseful for my actions.”

[Justice Block] ordered Hunt to make restitution within 30 days through his probation officer for damages he caused at the Life Chain: $50 to one victim to replace a jacket he defaced, and $150 to Campaign Life Coalition for a sign he destroyed.

Block further granted Crown attorney Nathan Kruger’s request that Hunt submit a sample of his DNA, given that he assaulted pro-life advocates on two separate occasions and fled the scene both times.

So there ya go.

Is this a satisfying end? Please let us all know in the Comments section.

Hopefully, thus ends hairdressing left-winger Jordan Hunt’s days of being a toxically masculine bigot.

Maybe from now on, he’ll take the advice of Dwayne Johnson (here).

As for his inclination toward tyrannical taekwondo, the woman-abusing, violent hairdresser got fired from his job after the stunt.

Additionally, the goob was hit with eight counts of assault and seven counts of mischief.

From Newsweek:

The police statement also alleged that Hunt was involved in a similar incident in August. While riding on a bicycle, Hunt allegedly approached a group of activists in Toronto and tried to take away one of their signs. When the protestors fought back, Hunt pushed one of the women into a pole. He then fled the scene.

Police have charged Hunt with one count of assault for his actions in August—bringing the total assault charge count to nine. The September incident took place near High Park-Swansea. The August incident took place at the intersection of Dufferin St and Dundas St West.

Speaking to the Toronto Sun last week, 27-year-old Bissonnette said she did not see the physical attack coming. “He kicked me in the shoulder, my phone went flying,” Bissonnette said. “I start shouting for someone to call police and before he runs away, he goes up to me and I had a ribbon on my jacket indicating [I was] the leader, he tore it off my chest.”

Well, now a judgement’s been meted. For his intolerance of opposing views — otherwise known as “bigotry” (see more from the Left here) — Jordan’s been sentenced to 8 months probation and ordered to stay 100 meters (roughly 330 feet) from pro-lifers. The restraining order seems like a good idea.

From LifeSite:

Hunt, 27…apologized to “everyone I hurt by my actions” in an undated letter which Justice Michael Block read out to the court.

“Everyone should have the right to be without fear when they act on their beliefs. I sincerely regret that I chose such a poor way of expressing myself,” wrote Hunt.

“My behavior was foolish and unacceptable, and I wish to apologize to the people I hurt. I want them to know that I learned a lot since these incidents. This behavior will not be repeated and I am truly remorseful for my actions.”

[Justice Block] ordered Hunt to make restitution within 30 days through his probation officer for damages he caused at the Life Chain: $50 to one victim to replace a jacket he defaced, and $150 to Campaign Life Coalition for a sign he destroyed.

Block further granted Crown attorney Nathan Kruger’s request that Hunt submit a sample of his DNA, given that he assaulted pro-life advocates on two separate occasions and fled the scene both times.

So there ya go.

Is this a satisfying end? Please let us all know in the Comments section.

Hopefully, thus ends hairdressing left-winger Jordan Hunt’s days of being a toxically masculine bigot.

Maybe from now on, he’ll take the advice of Dwayne Johnson (here).

Dan Crenshaw Brings Fire, Facts in Response to AOC Tripling Down on “Concentration Camps” Claim

As I wrote earlier, Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) called out Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY-14) on Twitter today over an absurd comparison of border detention centers to concentration camps she made during an Instagram Live video Monday night.

To recap, Cheney told Ocasio-Cortez to “do us all a favor and spend just a few minutes learning some actual history. 6 million Jews were exterminated in the Holocaust. You demean their memory and disgrace yourself with comments like this.”

AOC doubled down in response, asking Cheney “I’m curious: What do YOU call building mass camps of people being detained without a trial? How would you dress up DHS’s mass separation of thousands children at the border from their parents?”

Cheney responded again with some important facts AOC didn’t know overlooked.

Earlier in the day, AOC tried to defend herself from “shrieking Republicans” on this issue, but she ended up looking even more foolish:

After reading about what his Congressional colleague on the other side of the aisle said, Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX-2) took to the Twitter machine to help set the record straight:

He continued on in the next tweet by putting the pressure on Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats in the House to approve the $4.5 billion in funding President Trump has requested to alleviate the humanitarian crisis at the border:

Indeed. As I noted in my prior post on this topic, Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) plans on calling the left’s bluff on this issue next week.

As to AOC, I think this gif sums up her expertise on border issues and Holocaust history pretty well:

Don’t tell Her Highness that, though, because in spite of claiming a lack of expertise in the past, nowadays she wants every one to believe that she’s never wrong – no matter how wrong she is.

State Dept. Says Hillary Email Server Had at Least 30 Security Breaches

Westlake Legal Group aeeba3be-e031-4ee1-aedd-1be078c91e52 State Dept. Says Hillary Email Server Had at Least 30 Security Breaches Whitewash State Department Senate Security Violation Security Breach Relevant Politics Hillary Clinton Front Page Stories Front Page Featured Story exposure Email server democrats corruption Chuck Grassley But Her Emails

But her emails, right? Yeah, but her emails is right. It’s not the public’s fault that so much of this was kept hidden for so long and that it’s just now starting to trickle out.

Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server made news again yesterday after a letter sent to Sen. Chuck Grassley was released. In it, the State Department outlined that at least 30 security breaches took place during its operation.

In a letter to Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley, a State Department official said that at least 15 State Department employees were responsible for 23 violations and seven security infractions related to Clinton’s server.

The FBI investigated whether Clinton mishandled classified information by sending and receiving classified emails on a private server that she kept at her residence in New York. The FBI found that Clinton was “extremely careless” in using the server, but ultimately decided not to recommend that she be charged with a crime.

The State Department continued its internal review of the Clinton server after the FBI ended its investigation, according to the letter to Grassley. Clinton’s State Department aides, including Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, were aware that she exclusively used the server. Clinton and her aides exchanged thousands of classified emails while she was in office, including more than two dozen that were found to have top-secret information.

This is an ongoing review and State finds it probable that many more violations will be discovered. Grassley had made the request for the names of those who were behind the different violations.

Laws are for the little people though, so Hillary and her associates, who clearly knew about and intended to propagate the scheme that took place, have faced no consequences for their actions. I’m not even sure any of them have lost their security clearances.

Meanwhile, people from less protected classes have managed to find themselves in jail over far less and even accidental mishandling of classified information.

While this story has certainly aged at this point, it’s no less relevant today. The stench of corruption and backroom dealing within our bureaucracies has profoundly hurt the reputation of the FBI and DOJ. It’s still an eye-opening experience to go read the list of just how many unusual, illogical actions were taken to cover for Hillary throughout the ordeal.

Giving immunity deals to people with nothing to offer. Drafting early exoneration letters before an interview had even taken place. Letting Clinton’s co-conspirators function as her lawyers at the same time. Allowing the destruction of evidence for no logical reason. The list goes on and on.

While justice won’t ever be done, this letter to Grassley does add yet another piece of evidence into the public sphere that proves just how far the corruption went. Any normal person who had overseen so many violations while committing a clearly illegal act would have been prosecuted. Hillary Clinton isn’t a normal person though and that’s essentially the lesson that’s been taught here, much to the detriment of our institutions.
