State Department

ct-hillary-clinton-20161028

Has  America become so numb by the decades of lies and cynicism oozing from Clinton Inc. that it could elect Hillary Clinton as president, even after Friday’s FBIannouncement that it had reopened an investigation of her emails while secretary of state?

We’ll find out soon enough.

It’s obvious the American political system is breaking down. It’s been crumbling for some time now, and the establishment elite know it and they’re properly frightened. Donald Trump, the vulgarian at their gates, is a symptom, not a cause. Hillary Clinton and husband Bill are both cause and effect.

hillary-clinton-sunglasses-blackberrry-Kevin-Lamarque-AP-640x480Hillary Clinton’s campaign has repeatedly pushed back on the idea that any of the emails she sent using her personal email system while serving as Secretary of State were classified top secret.

Back in November, for example, campaign spokesperson Brian Fallon tweeted out a link to a Politico report suggesting that early findings that some of her emails contained highly classified material were wrong. Maybe Fallon was just sharing, not endorsing, and the exclamation points he included in his tweet were just there to demonstrate his surprise at the story.

At her Today Show town hall this morning, Hillary Clinton put a new spin on a discredited talking point about her email scandal.

Clinton claimed she had turned over her emails prior to the investigation by the Benghazi Select Committee, but the State Department has explicitly said they did not possess her records until she produced them in response to the committee’s inquiries.

Clinton Appears To Claim That Her Emails Had Been “Handed Over” To Congress Prior To The Discovery Of Her Private Server And Request From The State Department. GUTHRIE: “You’ve mentioned there have been seven or eight Benghazi Committees. This is the first to actually discover and find your e-mails. Was that a public service?” CLINTON: “No. No. I mean, before this whole thing, you know, was a big controversy, you know, the State Department was looking for information. My e-mails were on the government account, more than 90% of them. The State Department was pulling them out. They had been handed over.” (NBC’s “Today,”10/5/15)

A new review by two intelligence agencies has backed up an earlier conclusion that at least two emails on Hillary Clinton’s personal server contained “top secret” information.

The review by the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency went back to the original source documents, and follows the finding last month by the intelligence community inspector general that emails on the former secretary of state’s system contained information at the highest classification level. This included intelligence on special programs about North Korea’s nuclear weapons.

Late last night the State Department released 7,000 new emails belonging to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. The emails were stored on her private server and 150 have been flaggedas containing classified information. State Department Spokesman Mark Toner maintains that the emails deemed classified weren’t categorized as such when Clinton had them on her server and that they were later upgraded to classified status.

“So writ large or speaking broadly, classification – and we’ve said this many times – it’s not an exact science. It’s not often a black-and-white process. There’s many variation and there’s many strong opinions even on this very issue about classification. And this is all part, as we’ve said, again, many times, of the process that we’re undergoing – an interagency process where we look at these emails and we upgrade them as necessary, as we see fit,” Toner said in a press briefingyesterday about the email release. “I can just say that we stand by our contention that the information we’ve upgraded was not marked classified at the time that the emails were sent.”

ap_new-york-hillary-rodham-clinton_ap-photo7-640x569 Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton wiped her private email server clean and did not turn over a single new email to the House Select Benghazi Committee after it subpoenaed Clinton’s private emails, according to Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), who chairs the Committee. Gowdy said he learned on Friday that Clinton “unilaterally decided to wipe her server clean and permanently delete all emails from her personal server.” “While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department,” he said in a statement.  Gowdy, saying that Clinton should not be able to essentially grade her own papers, had also requested that Clinton turn over her server to a third-party arbiter, but Clinton refused. Gowdy has said that Congress may take legal action to get Clinton’s server, and he said that he and the House leadership are considering the “next steps” in the matter. “After seeking and receiving a two week extension from the Committee, Secretary Clinton failed to provide a single new document to the subpoena issued by the Committee and refused to provide her private server to the Inspector General for the State Department or any other independent arbiter for analysis,” Gowdy said. “In light of the Secretary’s unprecedented email arrangement with herself and her decision nearly two years after she left office to permanently delete all emails… we will work with the leadership of the House of Representatives as the Committee considers next steps.” Gowdy has previously said that there were “huge gaps” in the emails the Committee has received from Clinton, who admitted that she deleted more than 30,000 emails that she and her team deemed to be “personal” and not “work-related.” “There are gaps of months and months and months. And if you think to that iconic picture of her on a C-17 flying to Libya, she has sunglasses on and she has her handheld device in her hand, we have no e-mails from that day. In fact, we have no e-mails from that trip,” Gowdy said in a recent appearance on CBS’s Face the Nation. “So, it’s strange credibility to believe that if you’re on your way to Libya to discuss Libyan policy that there’s not a single document that has been turned over to Congress. So, there are huge gaps. And with respect to the president, it’s not up to Secretary Clinton to decide what is a public record and what’s not.”
