Skip to comments.State Dept. accused of stiff-arming intel watchdog over Hillary emails

Top U.S. intelligence officials are running out of patience with the State Department's reluctance to turn over emails from Hillary Clinton's private email server, which have already been shown to have included top secret communications, Fox News has learned.
The Intelligence Community's Inspector General has requested some 30,000 emails from Clinton in order to conduct its own review.
An intelligence source told Fox News the State Department has pushed back on the government intelligence watchdog's request, and that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper is considering intervening.
The flurry of activity came after Charles McCullough, the inspector general, notified senior members of Congress that two of four retroactively classified emails found on Clinton's server were deemed "Top Secret, Sensitive Compartmented Information" a rating that is the government's highest classifications.
A State Department spokesman said Wednesday that the agency is still processing the emails.
A source familiar with the investigation told Fox News late Tuesday that the two emails in question contained operational and geospatial intelligence from the CIA and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), which produces satellite images and told Fox News that the campaign's statement of cooperation was overblown,
"It's about time," House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio said in a statement. "Secretary Clinton's previous statements that she possessed no classified information were patently untrue. Her mishandling of classified information must be fully investigated."
"Secretary Clinton said she created this unusual email arrangement with herself for 'convenience.' It may have been convenient for her, but it has been troubling at multiple levels for the rest of the country," said Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., the chairman of the Benghazi select committee. "Secretary Clinton's decision to prioritize her own convenience - and desire for control - over the security of our country's intelligence should concern all people of good conscience."

Listen closely to the silence:
Sweet Baby James (Carville)
Obama of course,
... even Bill
The silence of anything but very tepid support for her is deafening!
Professional DNC friends, (political operatives, not philosophical liberals), explain it this way: "It's very simple. She has effed over people for years because she is a bitch... and so are paybacks.
There is also going to be a serious call for a criminal investigation by the IRS of the un-taxed personal benefits she got from her own "donations" to her own charity. The general legal concept is that when you make a donation to a 501, (c), (3) (tax-exempt charity) you must give up control of how it is to be used. There are exceptions, but you can't simply use a foundation as a personal tax dodge to the tune of tens of millions of dollars.
She goin' DOWN....
I totally agree. If those in power intended her to be protected (or if had the ability) it wouldn’t have gone this far already.
(pig in an orange pant suit)
We will see but I doubt it.
She has to much “insurance” to let that happen unless she is really really dumb.
The behavior of the State Department indicates that Hillary Clinton’s co-conspirators in the mass sale of US national security secrets are still on the job.
O M G!
Were they planning to march her off stage?
Calling Kelly and Co!!
Little help here guys? And gal or wherever?
The small handful of GOOD Americans remaining in the Intel community fear what the State Dept. has gotten a hold of, because they know that like Hillary herself, the State Dept. will mishandle and/or sell TS info. to the highest foreign bidder. Traitors all at the State Dept.
Notice how all this heavy news breaks AFTER 0dunga goes golfing? Coincidence?
The Clintons and Obama have shown very great alacrity for ignoring the law.
The problem is that as leaders, very many people are watching from them, learning from them.
Yesterday the ATF rejected repeated requests for documents regarding their operations on the basis that they, the friggin’ ATF, is NOT an Agency.
That’s on the scale of, “it depends on what the definition of ‘is’ is”.
If entire organs of the US government take up these type of games, HOW MUCH LONGER will it be before ordinary Joe’s walking down the street also do it?
THERE WILL BE UTTER CHAOS.
“if entire organs of the US government take up these type of games, HOW MUCH LONGER will it be before ordinary Joes walking down the street also do it?”
Do the names Chicago, New York or Baltimore ring a bell?
Well Slick Willy is currently busy at the moment, some woman named Snugglemuffin or so I have been told
Yep. No coincidences in these games.
Gotta admit, it’s absolutely delicious watching at least one of the criminal Clintons explode.
She can join Lois in breaking rocks. Oh I forgot, nothing happened to Lois.
At this point in time I’d say you’re correct if you say “she’s really dumb”.
Snugglemuffin is Julie McMahon, divorced NY and Colorado socialite hottie
Im shocked he actually went for a Socialite instead of his usual bimbos..at least his class level has gone up I Give him that
Speaking of the NGA :
President Obama Learns About a US Government Intelligence Agency for the First Time at a Burger Joint
I am betting that the foundation is a c4. she can donate up to 40% of her AGI to the foundation.
