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, email@example.com. 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, firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
Electing Trump only staved off the inevitable for a term or two. If Hillary had been elected, she would have provoked a civil war by now, which would have gotten this fight over and done with much sooner.
Obama provoked a similar response, which led to Trump. A Hillary presidency would probably lead to the complete destruction of the Democrat party and the total dismemberment of the left-liberal agenda in this country.
Spare me the "4-D chess" already.
All I see is a president being clobbered day and night, refusing to use the firepower at his disposal to defend himself, his office, and the citizens of this country.
I honestly don't get it, unless he's intentionally taking hits in order to spur us to action.
That’s why they called it “unsecure”.
Hillary is a shrewd politician but a real dumbass when it came to security issues. She was singing “If I Had a Hammer” when she destroyed her iPhones, Ipads, MaxiPads and servers (including the kid who aided her), but she’ll be singing “The Folsom Prison Blues” when all of these hidden security breaches are made public.
I think Lindsay Graham is going to have a ball with her, and it’s not the dancing kind. Hopefully the “The Three Amigos” or “4 Musketeers” of the House - Nunez, Meadows, Jordan and Gomert - get her subpoenaed before them. It will be like Custer at Little Big Horn and known as “The Massacre at Cankles Gulch”.
Hillary put the “B” in “Bitch”, “Bitter” and “Betrayal”. The Republicans are going to dot the “T” of Treason/Traitor and the “3Cs” of “Crooked Criminal Clinton”.
Long live Judicial Watch - doing the job that the cowardly Republicans were supposed to do (with a few honorable exceptions).
Take no crap from Commie Nadler, Egomaniac Cummings, Insane Clyburn, and AIOOHFM Adam Schiff (Absolutely Insane Out Of His Fu*king Mind Schiff).
We no longer control the House but we control the Senate and it is time to “Lock and Load, Aim and Fire” at the Deep State and show them no mercy. Traitors and fools don’t deserve any.
Sid “Vicious” Blumenthal- one of the most vile human being to ever walk the earth (and his son Max, according to a news report, was viewed as so crazy that German Communists didn’t want anything to do with him).
Hillary kept “good” company, just like Hitler and Stalin did with their “henchmen”.
Rev. Jim Wallis - Sojourner Organization - a hardcore Marxist pretending to be a “Christian”. He is the spearpoint of “Liberation Theology” among the Christian Leftists and was a hardcore supporter of the Viet Cong during the Vietnam war. The source for that should be online at www.keywiki.org, “Jim Wallis” page, from one of his newspapers from about 1971.
I like to refer to him as the “Rev. Typhoid Marxist Wallis” in recognition of his real roll on the Marxist Left.
He's nearly two and a half years into a four year term and we've seen no evidence that Trump is willing to fight fire with fire. What's he waiting for?
Sure, he'll go to court in a heartbeat, but that is the weakest possible response from a president who already has the legal and constitutional authority to do his job. Had he been willing to use the full power of his office in the beginning, he could have put the other side on defense, and had them all running for cover.
#29. I’m surprised Putin or Xi haven’t put her emails up for bid on Ebay. The way their economies are going, they could use the dough.
How much did the Clinton Foundation get for her negligence?
In a letter to lawmakers, the intelligence communitys internal watchdog says some of Clintons emails contained information classified Top Secret/Special Access Program, a secrecy designation that includes some of the most closely held U.S. intelligence matters.Hillary Clinton Emails Held Info Beyond Top Secret: IG
Special Access Programs (SAPs) in the U.S. Federal Government are security protocols that provide highly classified information with safeguards and access restrictions that exceed those for regular (collateral) classified information. SAPs can range from black projects to routine but especially-sensitive operations, such as COMSEC maintenance or Presidential transportation support. In addition to collateral controls, a SAP may impose more stringent investigative or adjudicative requirements, specialized nondisclosure agreements, special terminology or markings, exclusion from standard contract investigations (carve-outs), and centralized billet systems. Within the Department of Defense, SAP is better known as "SAR" by the mandatory Special Access Required (SAR) markings.: Special access program
Wow just wow. Systematically destroying Jewish organizations from the inside, example ADL (Anti-Defamation League) head Abraham Foxman left in 2015 and was replaced by a former Obama aide, and wuss, Jonathan Greenblatt. HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society)purpose gutted of its original purpose and used for immigrants from a number of countries, not Jewish people.
“Starting in the 2000s, HIAS expanded our resettlement work to include assistance to non-Jewish refugees, meaning we became involved in the aftermath of conflicts from Afghanistan, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Ethiopia, Haiti, Hungary, Iran, Morocco, Poland, Romania, Tunisia, Vietnam, and the successor states to the former Soviet Union.”
Some of these people were brought to the US.
All I see is a president being clobbered day and night, refusing to use the firepower at his disposal to defend himself, his office, and the citizens of this country.
No. He is moving slowly but he is moving. To me the real question is how solidly in his camp are his “generals” like Barr. If Barr decides that some issue is not a top priority then there is not too much Trump can do about it except have discussions with him. Obama had a whole machine that he was a puppet of. Trump is his own man and does not have longstanding political associates. He is also acting legally, not under the table like Obama and HRC.
All of this hampers him. However he is progressing.
That would have been completely acceptable in times past. Not now, when the forces of darkness are on the cusp of stealing Congress and the White House in 2020.
The Democrats are brazenly holding the door open for tens of millions of third world invaders, who they've invited here to outvote the native citizens. They will overturn 240 years of American history and culture if they're not stopped.
We should be on a war footing with this problem, not frittering away precious days, weeks, and months squabbling in courtrooms, trolling Twitter, and mud wrestling with the media.
From day one, Trump should have put the entire domestic enemy contingent on notice:
"As President, I intend to use the full weight and power of this office to restore the rule of law in this country, no matter the cost. I swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution and our great nation, and so help me God, I fully intend to keep that solemn promise, no matter what it takes."
Honestly, I'd like to hear more forceful language than that, but I'd be satisfied with anything along those lines, as long as he backed up his words with real action.
The point is, we're passed the point of dealing with our national ills on a business-as-usual basis. If the President is incapable of executing the sort of bold moves that are required to get a handle on our nation's existential problems, then it will ultimately fall to the people to do the job - and that won't be pretty by any means.
They could certainly leak them, but unless there's some benefit in it for them, it'll never happen. They already got the benefit of snooping on our most sensitive classified information, so what's it to them?
Gen. Jack Keane, Fox news contributor. Not a good look General.
Nobody is going to GITMO..
Privacy of non-gov employees............
Never forget, she was a LAWYER..........................
Mr President, please appoint a special prosecutor to dig into the CLINTON FOUNDATION! THAT’S WHERE THE FULL SCOPE OF ALL THE CORRUPTION LEADS!.............................
RICO LAWS! THEY HAVE BIG TEETH! USE THEM MR. PRESIDENT!!!!!............................
I honestly don’t get it, unless he’s intentionally taking hits in order to spur us to action.
Ask the Russians..........and the Chinese..........and the Israelis........and the Germans..........and the Norks..........and the Indians..........and the Bulgarians..........and the...........................
Bottom line, no even a hand slap for these serious violations thanks to that dirty cop Comey.
“She SOLD her password to foreign entities! “
IIRC, no government agency has even examined the “unsecured” server.
We’re suppose to take her word for it?
