Posted on 10/29/2016 2:34:11 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee
Agents within the Federal Bureau of Investigation never destroyed laptops given to them by aides of Hillary Clinton as previously reported, a Washington D.C. lawyer with a source close to the Clinton investigation says.
Washington D.C. attorney Joe DiGenova said on The David Webb Show on SiriusXM Friday night that despite the FBI agreeing to destroy the laptops of Clinton aide Cheryl Mills and ex-campaign staffer Heather Samuelson as part of immunity deals made during the initial investigation of Clintons email server, agents involved in the case refused to destroy the laptops.
According to the agreement reached with the attorneys who handed over their laptops, the laptops were to be destroyed per the agreement after the testimony was given the interviews were given by the attorneys. The bureau and the department agreed to that, DiGenova said. However the laptops contrary to published reports were not destroyed and the reason is the agents who are tasked with destroying them refused to do so. And by the way the laptops are at the FBI for inspection by Congress or federal courts. . .

From what I’ve heard, they didn’t destroy the devices IN DEFIANCE of their higher-ups in the FBI.
They should be given medals.
I hope and pray that Cheryl Mills is brought to justice as well.
Comey gave immunity to her, even though she was acting as Hillary Clinton's attorney during the e-mail scandal!
Can you imagine being a fly on the wall when Mills learned her laptop has not been destroyed by the FBI?
Comey took them to the lunch room and ran them 3 minutes in the microwave. They are not destroyed, physically, they make good paper weights.
This doesn’t change the fact that Comey is in the tank for the ‘Toons. The email server which was set up to obstruct justice by itself was enough to put Hill in the fed pen for over a decade.
Here is my theory.
Comey has millions in ill gotten gains from Billary.
So he put people he has the goods on to investigate Billary.
Meanwhile the NYPD Special Crimes Unit has an investigation going on on Wiener.
So there is all this evidence that Comey cant destroy as it is outside his control.
Oh, crap! He has to go public with it.
It is obvious that this is NOT due to serious evidence, or threats to national security because by just setting up the server to obstruct justice that bar was already met.
It has been widely reported the lengths to which Comey was going to destroy all Clinton evidence. So it looks like the rank and file didn’t carry out this egregious illegal action.
Of course we have been hearing about the mutiny in the FBI, so that put more pressue on Comey as well. This is likely worse that we’ve heard. The problem is that Comey cannot fire anyone, as they will go to the press.
“From what Ive heard, they didnt destroy the devices IN DEFIANCE of their higher-ups in the FBI.
They should be given medals.”
I have heard that too. We shall see.
Heard on Kudlow that FBI investigators basically made it clear that he go to Congress of they leak it. He would be guilty of providing false testimony to Congress if it came out that they were re-opening the investigation if he had been all over the news blabbing that they weren’t. He was between a rock and a hard place. He decided that someone else would hang for this — not him.
Nice recap of Mills. I most certainly agree....she should be brought to sift and punishable justice.
In addition to her full time tax-paid role at the State Department, Cheryl Mills was appointed American Representative to Haitis post-earthquake ruling body, the International Haitian Relief Commission (IHRC).
Mills also has a longstanding connection to the Clinton Foundation. She was a founding board member and only left when she joined the State Department. As soon as she left in 2012, she went right back to the Foundation. In fact during her tenure, corporate filings made by the Clinton Foundation continued to list her as a board member. So shes always been looking out for the Foundation shes like family.
In her thirty trips to Haiti, Mills worked closely with Bill Clinton, the U.N. Special Envoy To Haiti, who headed the Clinton/Bush Haiti Relief Fund at the request of Obama. Bill had been appointed as the Co-Chair of the IHRC, along with the President of Haiti. And, of course, he was the head of the Clinton Foundation.
In addition to controlling billions in US tax dollars, Bill started his own "Haiti Fund" through the Clinton Foundation, collecting an additional $86 million that he solely controlled.
Bill was definitely the man to go to in Haiti. And right behind him was Cheryl Mills, who had no experience whatsoever in emergency relief programs.
Mills also finagled a contract to rebuild Haitian schools for her live-in David Domeinci, father of her children. So, didnt the two top people at the State Department notice the giant conflict of interest they were creating in even considering the Haiti proposal to benefit the family of a top employee and decision maker in Haiti? Through a Foundation that Mills had strong ties to and that was controlled by the Clinton Family?
Apparently not, but of course, they never expected us to read about it.......in Vice News, Judicial Watch, Citizens United, Gawker, AP via FOI requests.
It is not clear whether Domenicis project was ever funded, although the Clinton Foundation website does mention its funding for rebuilding schools without indicating how it was done and who received the money......the Clinton's special version of "transparency."
But heres what is clear: The Clintons and their cronies were running Haiti. As Special Envoy, and Co-Chair of the IHRC, Clinton made all the decisions. Nothing happened there without his imprimatur. Nothing. No reconstruction contracts were approved, no money was paid out unless Bill okay-ed them....... And Mills was right behind him, traveling to Haiti thirty times herself.
And the Clintons cronies, family, Foundation donors, and patrons of Bills corporate speeches benefited handsomely by their connections to the rulers of Haiti.
According to The New York Times, Hillarys brother, Tony Rodham, testified under oath that he was given 10,000 acres of land in Haiti by a guy who wanted to build housing. Tony described his access: I deal through the Clinton Foundation. That gets me in touch with the Haitian officials. (hat tip thehillarydaily.com0
She doesnt recall, she doesnt recollect. Shes not sure. She just doesnt know. Hillary Clintons counsel and chief of staff doesnt know a lot of things. She cant remember testimony she gave. She isnt sure if she spoke to anyone she doesnt remember Hillarys email address, she doesnt even know who might know anything. During seven hours of testimony before Judicial Watch, Cheryl Mills said I dont know or some variation of ignorance at least 189 times.
Mills is clearly adept at finding ways to proclaim her ignorance. She was Bill Clintons counsel during the impeachment proceedings in the 1990s and has been a close advisor for both Bill and Hillary Clinton for decades.
Breitbart compiled a list of the near-200 times Mills declared how little she knows. READ HERE http://thefederalistpapers.org/us/what-cheryl-mills-doesnt-know-could-last-seven-hours-wait-it-does
CONCLUSION Mills is a very bad actor. She is one of Hillarys most vicious and loyal Janissaries. She is long overdue for prosecution IMHO.
HAT TIP STINGRAY51 Cheryl Mills was Hillarys chief of staff and Counselor of the United States Department of State. Despite the word counselor, this is not an attorney position.
Most people in that position have not been attorneys (and the current office holder is not!). The fact that Mills is an attorney does not make all of her communications with Hillary privileged attorney client communications. Every lawyer knows this!
Basically, only legal advice and related communications are privileged. Furthermore, as a government lawyer (assuming she was acting as a lawyer), any privilege belongs to the government and not to the government employee the attorney was giving legal advice to as part of her official duties.
So if we were really talking about privileged communications here (which of course I suspect we are not!), the proper approach would have been for Mills and Clinton to turn over the possibly privileged emails to the State Department for them to review to for privilege.
And if the DOJ really wanted to investigate this, they would have challenged the assertion of privilege and if that failed, used the grand jury process to compel production or at least a judicial review of the materials.
This is a total joke and I cant believe the headlines keep describing Mills as Clinton's lawyer"....(and Comey letting her sit in on Hillary's testimony.)
So how did BlackIvy, a brand new firm with no discernible track record of building ports, manage to become an overnight player in the East African energy market?
It turns out Clintons former aides had some help from a company called Symbion Power, which was created to profit off rebuilding efforts in Iraq and Afghanistan after the U.S. invasions. Symbion Power happens to be a very good friend of Hillary Clintons.
BACKSTORY Hillary's pal, Sid Blumenthal was the conniving Clintons' bagman---a $325,000 employee of the Clinton Foundation, he had numerous paid side interests----promoting any number of foreign deals and schemes in which he had a financial interest.....many of which were predicated on the toppling of Libya's Khadaffi.
Blumenthal was ambidextrous---chronically emailing Hillary Libya foreign policy messages w/ one hand....his other hand firmly in the State Dept cookie jar.
In one confidential e-mail to Clinton, Blumenthal was clearly colluding w/ onetime Amb Joe Wilson (Valerie Plame's hubby) to help himself to the tax dollars in the State Dept cookie jar.
GAME ON Amb Wilson pumped himself up as a 'director' of Symbion Power---an outfit seeking millions of dollars in contracts from an obscure government agency chaired by Hillary....the Millennium Challenge Corp. (MCC)
In September 2010, Hillary's MCC awarded Symbion $47 million tax dollars for (cough) 'power projects in Tanzania.'
EVER WONDER how much of the $47 million tax dollars got to Tanzania....after the players divvied it up among Blumenthal, Wilson, the Clintons, Obama?
<><> Did Mills BlackIvy Group donate to The Clinton Foundation? <><> Did the Clinton Foundation partner w/ her BlackIvy Group in some phony sub-Sahara scam for the children? <><> Did Hillarys State Dept grant Mills Group tax monies? <><>Did any of the Sub-Sahara countries listed above donate to the Clinton Foundation?
NOTE Millenium is also the source of the 100 million tax dollars Michele gave to Morocco "to teach Muslim girls" ===========================================
FREEPER ACTION PROJECT--DO THIS NOW: demand the Millennium Challenge Corporation (MCC) books be opened. We demand to know the financial details and the scope and dimension of individuals connected to these outrageous State Dept giveaways.........govt parasites profiting at taxayers' expense.
When I read about this a while back—that the FBI had destroyed the laptops-my jaw dropped. There’s something fundamentally wrong with LEOs, at any level, destroying evidence pertinent to a criminal investigation, whether part of am immunity deal or not.
It stinks and they knew it. So good on `em.
It sounds like the feebs may be like the Border Patrol and a number of other federal agencies crippled by `Wesley Mouch’-type hack leadership appointed by our figurehead pResident.
Lying to liars. Poetic.
They didn’t say when.
How do we know there was actually an immunity deal? And if there was only a promise not to prosecute, WTH would attys advise their clients to cough up their tech? And if that tech is really sitting there, how do we know the clients turned over the authentic/only devices? Who had access to the tech at the FBI? Who was asked to destroy the tech? What happened to personnel who refused to comply? Has the chain of custody for the tech been so compromised, it’s worthless for prosecution purposes?
This is an unholy charlie foxtrot.
Only DOJ grants immunity
These guys in the FBI who refused to destroy should replace the higher ups when trump is in ITS PROMOTION TIME, BE NICE TO THOSE ON THE WAY UP BECUASE YOU WILL MEET THEM ON THE WAY DOWN!
There will be no one to pardon them, the a##clown leaves on the 20th
