Posted on 03/21/2019 2:30:08 PM PDT by Red Badger
(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch today announced it received 756 pages of newly uncovered emails that were among the materials former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried to delete or destroy, several of which were classified and were transmitted over her unsecure, non-state.gov email system.
Hillary Clinton repeatedly stated that the 55,000 pages of documents she turned over to the State Department in December 2014 included all of her work-related emails. In response to a court order in another Judicial Watch case, she declared under penalty of perjury in 2015 that she had directed that all my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or are potentially federal records be provided to the Department of State, and on information and belief, this has been done.
In 2017, the FBI uncovered 72,000 pages of documents Clinton attempted to delete or did not otherwise disclose. Until the court intervened and established a new deadline, the State Department had been slow-walking the release of those documents at a rate that would have required Judicial Watch and the American people to wait until at least 2020 to see all the releasable Clinton material. The production of documents in this case is now concluded with the FBI being only able to recover or find approximately 5,000 of the 33,000 government emails Hillary Clinton took and tried to destroy.
Judicial Watch obtained the documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed on May 6, 2015, after the State Department failed to respond to a March 4, 2015, FOIA request (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)) seeking:
All emails sent and received by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in her official capacity as Secretary of State, as well as all emails by other State Department employees to Secretary Clinton regarding her non-state.gov email address.
This final batch of Clinton emails includes five new classified emails and communications with controversial figures Lanny Davis and Sidney Blumenthal.
On April 27, 2011, former British Prime Minister Tony Blair sent classified information discussing Palestinian issues to Clintons personal unsecure email account.
On May 19, 2011, Blair again sent classified information to Clintons personal unsecure email account discussing a speech.
A classified email exchange between Blair and Clinton took place from January 16, 2009 (while George W. Bush was still president) and January 24, 2009. The subject line is Re: Gaza. Blair on January 16, 2009, relayed information he learned from Middle East leaders and noted that he wanted to get something resolved before Tuesday (when Obama would be sworn in as president). Clinton responded to Blair on January 19, 2009, writing Tony We are finally moving and I am looking forward to talking w you as soon as Im confirmed, tomorrow or Wednesday at the latest. Your emails are very helpful so pls continue to use this address, firstname.lastname@example.org. Blair followed up by saying It would be great if we could talk before any announcements are made.
Retired Army Gen. Jack Keane sent Clinton classified information, apparently during early 2009. The subject line of the email is redacted, but the text appears to show a discussion on information about Iraq.
In September 2, 2010, email exchange marked classified, longtime Clinton confidante Lanny Davis tells Secretary Clinton that he could serve as a private channel for her to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, saying he had a private and highly trusted communication line, unofficial and personal, to PM N[etanyahu]. Davis goes on to say [N]o one on the planet (other than your wonderful husband) can get this done as well as you. Secretary Clinton responds with classified information, saying I will reach out to you directly and hope you will continue to do the same w me. The most important issue now is [Redacted B1].
In a September 18, 2010, email, Davis emails Clinton to tell her that As soon as I wrote last email, I reverted to my old role as your crisis manager and worrier about you, read the word optics I suddenly felt oops. I am registered under FARA for one or more foreign governments or businesses. I dont think it would look right. I want to avoid any even slight chance of misperception. Clinton replies, Thx for looking out for me, my friend. Ill tell Cheryl to stand down. Davis replied, 100% off-the-record.
An email with the subject line Clinton-Ivanishvili Meeting shows a meeting with pro-Putin, Georgian billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili, who was reportedly involved in a Russia-rigged election for president of the Republic of Georgia. On May 29, 2012, longtime Clinton political operative Craig T. Smith emailed Cheryl Mills, asking if a meeting between Secretary Clinton and Georgian billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili was happening, saying: Would be a good thing if it can work out. Mills tells Smith shell revert and forwards the email to Jake Sullivan, Human Abedin and Lona Valmoro, asking them if they were setting up the meeting, noting that it involved meeting with the opposition and asking what she could tell Smith. Valmoro responds that the meeting with Ivanishvili was on the schedule.
An undated email from former Deputy Secretary of State Strobe Talbott to Clinton discusses that VP Joe Biden was thinking seriously about a Biden-Putin Commission.
The documents reveal that Clinton had been assigned an official government email address with which she could have conducted government business, email@example.com. She also reportedly had additional government addresses at her disposal: SMSGS@state.gov and SSHRC@state.gov, neither of which were configured to send or receive emails.
The documents uncovered by Judicial Watch also include an email to Tamera Luzzatto, former chief of staff during Clintons tenure as U.S. Senator for New York. Clinton talks about getting a secure computer set up soon.
Tamerathis is my new address, but, pls know, I cannot check it during the day unless I leave my office. I hope to have a secure computer set up soon to be able to get email during the workday. Much love, H.
On October 29, 2009, a Clinton Foundation employee and close Clinton adviser Sid Blumenthal forwarded a proposal for a commercial contract related to improvised explosive devices (IEDs) from retired CIA officer-turned-contractor Gary Berntsen, to Clinton (copying Cheryl Mills), saying that Berntsen had been unable to break through the bureaucracy with it. Mills then forwarded the email to Jake Sullivan. Blumenthal noted that Cody [Shearer] and I are following up. Blumenthal and Shearer were both implicated in the creation of the Obama administrations anti-Trump Russia collusion counterintelligence operation by providing reports relating to Trump-Russia collusion to the U.S. Government.
On January 29, 2009, Blumenthal emailed Secretary Clinton a memo he titled Good Cop, Bad Cop, where Blumenthal informs Clinton that his sources tell him that an attack on the appointment by Obama of former Sen. George Mitchell as Special Envoy to the Middle East was coordinated by Jewish institutional leaders and carefully scripted. Also cited is Mitchells Arab descent as making him politically vulnerable. Blumenthal told Clinton that any conversations she had with Netanyahu flows directly and instantly back to top (U.S.) Jewish leadership. Further on in his memo, Blumenthal says that Netanyahu and Jewish leadership should be expected to use political means, including outsourcing personal attacks to counter Obama administration moves and said Netanyahu was deeply connected to political networks in the U.S. media, Jewish groups, Republican leaders, and right-wing Christian organizations. To provide a heat shield from Netanyahus attacks, Blumenthal advises Clinton that Obama should hire a bad cop who is organically tied to the President and a political appointee, Jewish, considered a true friend of Israel Clinton responded by saying, Thanks for these. And I will call you in the next few days.
In an October 20, 2012, email exchange between top State Department and Clinton Foundation officials discussing arrangements for Bill and Hillarys trip to Haiti. That trip focused on the opening of the Caracol Industrial Park, funded by a $300 million+ grant from USAID. The Caracol Park came to be seen as a hugely wasteful disaster, that was supposed to create 65,000 jobs for Haitians but as of January 2015 only produced 4,500.
On January 25, 2009, Chelsea Clintons high school friend Nicole Davison (now Nicole Davison Fox), made a hiring recommendation to Secretary Clinton for the State Department. Clinton forwarded Davisons recommendation on to Cheryl Mills, telling Mills to follow up on the wonderful recommendation. Mills replied, K.
Maggie Williams, campaign manager of Clintons failed 2008 presidential bid, forwarded to Clinton a note sent to her by then-managing partner of the Gallup Organization, which said that Gallup Polls suggest Obamas plan to expedite withdrawal from Iraq could help improve some residents opinion [referring to Iraqis opinion of US leadership.] Williams proposed to Secretary Clinton sending a group of high-level State Department officials to Gallup for a presentation, including Jack Lew, Jim Steinberg, Cheryl Mills and Lissa Muscatine. Williams would later suggest adding Jake Sullivan and Anne-Marie Slaughter to the Gallup presentation.
On February 18, 2009, chairman of telecom company Centurylink, Bill Owens, emailed Clinton (copying Abedin) asking if he could get a meeting with the secretary during her upcoming trip to China. Abedin responded, saying that she was talking to Owens assistant to arrange for the two of you to visit for a few minutes during Clintons trip. Owens had been appointed Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1994 by President Bill Clinton. After retiring from the Navy in 1996, he became chairman of defense contractor SAIC.
In a January 3, 2011-March 1, 2011, email thread, Susanne Helmsley, a staffer at the World Economic Forum (ie, Davos) emailed leftist Christian writer-activist Jim Wallis to inform him that former British PM Gordon Brown would not be invited to the upcoming Davos meeting, because our policy (and this makes Davos distinctive) is to only invite people who are still in power. She also noted that the theme of the upcoming Davos meeting would be Shared Norms for the New Reality, noting that the discussions of values will be a major element in Davos, since norms are only sustainable if built on values. Wallis mentions his prior partnership with Bangladeshi banker Mohammad Yunus, who would be charged the next year with tax fraud and embezzling from the bank hed founded, Grameen Bank.
On five occasions Clintons secretary, Lauren Jiloty, sent Clintons sensitive daily itinerary to her on her unsecure email account.
On January 29, 2009, State Department official Ashley Yehl received a Judicial Watch press release from Associated Press reporter Matt Lee about a lawsuit Judicial Watch filed on behalf of State Department official David Rodearmel challenging Clintons appointment as Secretary of State. Yehl forwarded the email on to several other State people, who in turn forwarded it on to States Legal Office and official James Thessin. Thessin sent it along to Cheryl Mills who sent it on to Secretary Clinton, assuring Clinton that the Department of Justice would defend her against the Judicial Watch lawsuit.
We continue to uncover classified information mishandled by Hillary Clinton in emails that she tried to hide or destroy. This is further evidence of the urgency for the DOJ to finally undertake a complete and legitimate criminal investigation, said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. Attorney General Barr should immediately order a new investigation of the Hillary Clinton email scandal.
If the information was incidental, not worthy of being classified, then why are they still being redacted when released under FOIA?
Mueller doesn’t care about anything but Trump, ostensibly, because his appointment letter instructs him to investigate Trump and Trump associates, and only them, by name.
Which betrays one of the big lies at the heart of the matter. Democrats cried “we must root out foreign influence in our elections” and of course most Americans agree with that. But that isn’t what they are trying to do. If they were, they would be investigating all the parties and people involved in the 2016 election.
Trump is right when he calls it a witch hunt. They are in search of a crime, a la the axiom “show me the man and I’ll find you the crime”. Again, that is not justice.
If this bitch and her cohorts escape long prison terms, the USA is doomed!
LOCK HER UP!
But I expect Trump will get the last word. He has to. The criminal actions of those people and organizations cannot go unpunished.
For the sake of his presidential legacy, and our country, this has to be the mother of all counter punches. Rudy and he have probably planned such a retaliatory strike for a long time. They want it to be shock and awe, a barrage of evidence that will demolish Mueller and the Deep State. At least I hope that is the plan.
As for Barr, to allow the DOJ and FBI to violate the trust placed in them by the American people would be a national disgrace. It would likely encourage others to do similar things to subvert our elections and the presidency itself.
You are absolutely correct in saying that the criminal actions of those people and organizations cannot go unpunished. If they are not, we will know beyond any shadow of a doubt that our government is thoroughly corrupt.
Several, to the back of the head, by our own hand... no less.
WHEN is she going to PRISON!?
Pure, unadulterated weasel words, How very Clinton-esque of her...
In other words, 'Not my fault - somebody else was supposed to do it, and I thought that it had been done.'
I wouldnt sleep the night before a Communications Security inspection because if one I wasnt dotted, you were done.
And look at how worried Queen Hillary was.
After the election, I’ll have more flexibility to sell out the country.
Clinton collusion ping.
Significant in light of Talbott's prior history with the KGB: Over winter vacation of 1969-1970, Clinton toured Moscow, where he had been preceded by his roommate Strobe Talbott. Talbott was then translating the memoirs of former Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, which had been leaked to him by Victor Louis, a KGB disinformation agent and talent spotter. Clinton and Talbotts other roommate Frank Aller was doing similar work on the unpublished notes of Edgar Snow, an academic associate of Lattimore. . .Talbott was a Russian affairs scholar and intern journalist for TIME. He had begun visiting Moscow in 1968 and had developed contacts in the USSR. In summer 1969 he was in Moscow acting as a replacement for vacationing TIME Moscow bureau chief Jerrold Schecter. At this time he met Victor Louis (Vitali Yevgenyevich Lui), a KGB disinformation agent and talent spotter who specialized in influencing journalists and planting stories in the Western media. . .In late 1969, after staying with Richard Stearns for a couple weeks in October, Clinton began rooming with Talbott and their friend Frank Aller. Aller, a draft dodger and China scholar, was doing academic work similar to Talbotts, making trips to Switzerland to receive the unpublished notes of Edgar Snow, an academic advocate of the Chinese Communists who was linked to the old Institute of Pacific Relations network. (In 1971 the Chinese government would use Snow to mediate an invitation to Owen Lattimore, making sure there would be no Soviet objections if Lattimore visited China.) Clintons autobiography recalls how he often made Talbott and Aller breakfast while they were doing their work. . .After Khrushchevs memoirs were published, Khrushchev issued a nuanced denial of their authenticity, Soviet news agencies claimed Talbott was a young sapling of the CIA, and the Soviets refused to allow Talbott back in the country. Western Soviet expert Victor Zorza speculated that both the KGB and the CIAs disinformation departments may have played tug-of-war over the memoirs. When Clinton later nominated Talbott for Deputy Secretary of State, Talbott was questioned about his relationship with Louis. He initially claimed he met Louis in the 1970s, then under cross-examination he remembered that he had actually first met Louis in 1969. (Talbotts brother-in-law Derek Shearer later developed numerous Communist and IPS front associations and became one of Clintons closest advisors. Other Shearer family members also became part of the extended Clinton clan.). . .: Road to Moscow: Bill Clintons Early Activism from Fulbright to Moscow
Your never-Trump lunacy is showing.
Mr President, please appoint a special prosecutor to dig into the clinton email scandal.
4 SP’s, 4 invesstigations, 4 months to file charges.
Their needs to be Federal and individual state commissions formed to hold prosecution responsible for their actions or inactions. It would only take a few prosecutions of prosecutors to solve the problem.
Lock her up!
The statute if limitations on these classified materials is 10 years.
Better get busy with Hillary’s grand jury.
I wonder how many more there are.
Hacked? She SOLD her password to foreign entities! No hacking was required.
Guilty as sin - free as a bird.
