Skip to comments.Former Inspector General: Powerful Democrat Women Standing in Way of Hillary Indictment
Posted on 02/03/2016 2:20:54 AM PST by afraidfortherepublic
A former Inspector General for the State Department says Hillary Clinton will never be indicted for her use of a private email server because there are four loyal Democrats standing in the way.
Former Inspector General Howard J. Krongard says the current FBI investigation should be focused on how material made it from the classified email system, known as SIPRNet, to Clinton's unclassified private server. "It can't just jump from one system to the other. Someone had to move it, copy it. The question is who did that?" Krongard tells the New York Post.
Krongard says Hillary's top three aides-Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, and Jake Sullivan-are facing "significant scrutiny" because they sent most of the material that wound up on Clinton's server. Though it has yet to be determined how classified material wound up crossing from one email system to the other, Krongard suggests staffers emailing Hillary likely summarized what they had read elsewhere.
"She's trying to distance herself from the conversion from SIPRNet to [the nonsecure] NIPRNet and to her server, but she's throwing her staffers under the bus," Krongard tells the Post. Indeed, when Clinton was pressed about whether something needed to be marked classified in order to be considered classified on a Sunday news show, she replied that identifying such material was the responsibility of "someone down the chain."
Even if the FBI decides Clinton holds the ultimate responsibility for creating the private server, "It will never get to an indictment," Krongard tells the Post. The decision to act on the FBI's recommendation would have to pass through, "four loyal Democrat women." Krongard is referring to Loretta Lynch and her deputies Leslie Caldwell and Sally Yates. In addition, Valerie Jarrett, one of President Obamaâs top advisers, could weigh in.

The Criminal Arrogance of Hillary Clinton
Clinton has “disqualified herself for elected office”
Here’s the law: U.S. Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 101, Section 2071, Paragraph a: “Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”
Paragraph b: Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.
Hillary Rodham Clinton decided to conduct, for four years, the office of Secretary of State using her own private email server. Because these emails were not transacted and recorded through the official State Department servers, Mrs. Clinton “willfully concealed and removed” these critical documents from the records and archives of the United States Government. You can further argue that by electing to not have these records placed onto government servers—which are secure, routinely backed up, and most importantly subject to Freedom Of Information Act requests, that she has, by any reasonable interpretation, “mutilated, obliterated and destroyed” these essential records, which belong not to Hillary Rodham Clinton but rather to the Secretary of State of the United States of America, and her employers, the people of that nation.
The penalty for this is a fine or up to three years imprisonment, or both. Thatâs paragraph (a) of the law.
By her own admission, transacting ALL of her State Department business through her private server means that by not turning the entire server over to the State Department—all of it, that’s for us to decide what is important or incriminating, not her—she has in fact “willfully and unlawfully concealed, removed, mutilated, obliterated, falsified, or destroyed the same.”
That too is punishable by fine, up to three years imprisonment, or bothâ¦ and, parenthetically, forfeiture of office and disqualification from holding any office under the United States.
That’s the law. That’s what the law says. Democrat or not it applies to Clinton!
The lawlessness is endemic in this administration. But beyond the lawlessness is, of course, the contempt. The contempt for the very idea that these Harvard and Yale Law School grads have to actually, you know, obey the law. The contempt for the American people’s right to know what their elected officials are doing. And beyond all of this, the towering, monumental, criminal arrogance of it: that the official business of the United States of America; the nationâs diplomacy, strategy, defense posture, privileged communications between our allies and in point of fact every particle of our nation’s foreign policy was being discussed and archived in a single box in either Texas or Manhattan or wherever the hell it is; that this server’s basic, routine, Microsoft security updates—the kind you and I get pestered with every day—were not complied with; that the vital security interests or in fact the very lives of 320 million people did not warrant the effort to even obtain a unique encryption certificate but rather used the same one issued to thousands if not millions of users; all of this gets to the heart not only of who Hillary Clinton is and the contempt in which she holds the American people. It is deeper than that.
When the President of the United States gets an official notification from his Secretary of State from BestMattressDeals99@yahoo.com, or any email that does not end in dot gov, then he too is complicit in this lawlessness, and for the same reason.
Barack Obama’s Press Secretary, Josh Earnest, admits that the President did receive emails from his Secretary of State, and went on to say this:
Feel better now? The President of the United States, receiving emails from an illegal source, did not know or care or take any action whatsoever to ensure that she complied with the federal law she was in violation of. And neither did any of the people we pay to be responsible for the security of the communications of those at the uppermost level of the most powerful nation in the world.
This country was founded to be rid of the incompetence, reckless arrogance and casual stupidity of Kings and Queens who acted as though they were above the law. If we let these crimes go unpunished it will die of that same parasitical disease.
Would be salaciously ironic if this guy Jake becomes the sole one of the bunch to take the fall for "equal pay equal work" Canky.
She and Huma will walk, an underling or two may or may not be charged.
It’s how the game is played.
Nothing happened to Sandy Burglar, nothing will happen to Clinton. Bernie is a sideshow for appearances of “competition” so she’ll have “earned” the nomination. The shenanigans in Iowa are just the start.
It’s called obstruction of justice, so lock the four traitors up with her. They enjoy sharing a cell with the dike.
laws and regulations are for “little” people...
if they are standing in the way, get a D9 and move them
there is a strong precedent for ridding the earth of such riff raff
Rachel Corrie provides the precedent
Old Slick and his wife have been breaking laws since he was governor of Arkansas. Nothing has happened to them. Other people take the fall or end up dead. Like Vince Foster.
Did anyone ever get charged in his Arkancide?
A top aide to Hillary Clinton "refused" to cooperate with investigators looking into whether the Clinton team suppressed a 2012 records request that could have exposed their private email use years before a separate congressional inquiry did so, Sen. Chuck Grassley said Monday.
The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman raised concerns about the role Cheryl Mills, then-chief of staff to Clinton, played in blocking a Freedom of Information Act request for Clinton's email use in a pair of letters to the State Department and the agency's inspector general Monday.
Grassley cited an inspector general report made public in January that detailed, among other things, the extent of officials' knowledge of Clinton's private email use throughout the State Department. Dozens of agency staff were aware Clinton used private addresses to shield her communications.
But Mills intervened when a watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, submitted a FOIA request for records "sufficient to show the number of email accounts of, or associated with, Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton."
"Ms. Mills and senior department officials knew about Secretary Clinton's use of private email for official correspondence since they were sending emails to her non-government email address," Grassley wrote in his letters Monday. "They would have known instantly of records responsive to that request."
"Yet, it was approximately five months later before the department officially responded to CREW's request for email accounts associated with Secretary Clinton," the Iowa Republican continued. "And its response was misleading, at best: 'no records responsive to your request were located.' "
However, more recent FOIA requests over Clinton's emails have forced the release of thousands of responsive records, including the 55,000 pages of her emails presently published or under review by the State Department.
Grassley said Mills "refused to speak with" officials in the State Department's inspector general office when they approached her about her involvement in smothering CREW's records request in 2012.
According to the inspector general, a State Department spokesman had flagged the potentially damaging FOIA request for Mills, who passed it on to a trusted staffer and White House liaison and instructed her to find out how the agency planned to handle the request. Months later, the watchdog group received a notice that the records they sought did not exist.
Grassley demanded to know why the State Department waited so long to respond to such a simple request, and why the eventual response failed to turn up documents that clearly existed.
The State Department has come under fire over the past year for its handling of FOIA requests, which more than doubled after the discovery of Clinton's private email use in March of last year.
Agency officials have battled dozens of FOIA lawsuits in court, only to have judges shoot down State's arguments against releasing Clinton's records. A handful of such federal cases has forced the agency to hand over documents related to her diplomatic tenure.
My gut feeling is the cunning Clintonids didn't sign off b/c that would have cutoff their access to classified and other State Dept info......info the greedy Clintons and their cronies use to cash-in.
The FBI should determine if Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, Sid Blumenthal and other Clinton cronies are STILL considered State Dept employees---perhaps as contractors--- and are still receiving classified State Dept mail and cashing US govt paychecks.
REFERENCE Brian Pagliano---billed as Hillary's personal IT--- left her employ then surfaced on the public payroll as a State Dept contractor.
Taxpayers demand to know who else among the Clinton cronies are cashing US govt paychecks. It's an old bureaucratic trick for a politician to hand-pick top aides and put them on the public payroll long after you think they're gone. Who might still be cashing State Dept paychecks?
<><> Bill Clinton?
<><> Sid Blumenthal?
<><> Huma Abedin,
<><> Anthony Weiner, Huma's husband?
<><> Cheryl Mills?
<><> Cheryl mills' live-in David Domenici?
<><> Chelsea Clinton?
<><> Chelsea's husband?
FREEPER ACTION NOW---CONTACT CONGRESS HERE: http://www.contactingthecongress.org/
Demand Congress send you all available information on individuals connected to Hillary still cashing US govt paychecks.
In light of the $6 billion that went missing from the State Dept's contractor fund when Hillary exited, taxpayers demand to know who is listed as a State Dept contractor....and whether they are receiving classified State Dept info.
Surely Grassley knows the answer. He has no teeth and they are playing with him.
Trump or Cruz will stop this. The GOPe will not oppose this. This is not the political will of the American people and is highly unpopular, if reports of it are not suppressed by MSMedia.
the 100 thousand number was in all the big papers.
and there is NO WAY you did not know what this guy was by 2012.
it’s a different country and i will be glad to win 52 48 and run.
