    Judicial Watch ^ | JUNE 24, 2016
    This week we learned more about the problems former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s staff faced in keeping her separate email system running. They were, in fact, wrestling with matters of national security. The revelations came thanks to our prying loose the email records referred to in the May 2016 State Department’s Office of the Inspector General report criticizing former Secretary of State Clinton’s email practices. The OIG report makes reference to the emails but they were not released to the public until now. We obtained them under a June 14, 2016, court order issued by U.S. District Court Judge...

    The latest batch of emails from Hillary Clinton's term as Secretary of State exposes two new troubling developments in the long-running scandal. First, it turns out that Clinton managed to avoid turning over one key email, despite her repeated promises that she gave the State Department every single work-related email from her private email server. As the Associated Press reported, in the missing email, Clinton admits that her private setup was a problem. Excerpt, more at:
  • AP: Hillary Clinton Destroyed Gov’t Email, Wiped Names From Her Calendar

    The week ends with a double whammy for Hillary Clinton, courtesy of the Associated Press, which discovered that dozens of names and events have been scrubbed from her official Secretary of State calendar, and also confirmed that Clinton destroyed at least one work-related email stored on her illicit email server. The latter revelation has a distinct whiff of “smoking gun” about it. The deleted email was between Clinton and her aide Huma Abedin. When Abedin suggested that Clinton should start using the email account that Clinton was supposed to be using, the Secretary of State replied, “Let’s get separate...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Secretary Hillary Clinton failed to turn over a copy of a key message involving problems caused by her use of a private homebrew email server, the State Department confirmed Thursday. The disclosure makes it unclear what other work-related emails may have been deleted by the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee.

    A collection of records made public Wednesday indicates State Department officials attempted to give Hillary Clinton a government email account to use while she was secretary of state, contradicting previous claims from agency officials that no such account was ever set up. But the email account,, went unused after a State Department official warned one of Clinton's aides in Aug. 2011 that messages sent to and from the address would be "subject to [Freedom of Information Act] searches." The records, which were referenced but not published in an inspector general report released last month, were obtained by conservative watchdog...

    It was recently revealed that a European hacker, likely under the guidance of Russian intelligence agencies, obtained access to the Democrat National Committee’s computer network, absconding with untold amounts of documents and internal information. The hacker, who goes by the moniker “Guccifer 2.0,” an homage to the now-jailed Romanian hacker believed to have breached the private email server of former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, just released some of the documents allegedly hacked from the DNC files, according to the Washington Examiner. These included such documents as a master defense plan covering Clinton’s many weaknesses and a “cheat sheet” detailing...

    The nominee insists her mishandling of State Department email is no big deal—but the real drama is just beginning: Suddenly things were aligning perfectly for Hillary Clinton in her quest for the presidency. After months of embarrassing inability to vanquish Senator Bernie Sanders, a 74-year-old socialist who represents a state with just two-tenths of a percent of the American population, she wrapped up her party’s nomination for the White House. The Democratic convention in Philadelphia next month will be a formality, no matter how loudly Bernie Bros stomp their feet. To cap that triumph last week, President Obama endorsed Hillary...

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Obama administration supported the terrorist group that became ISIS as the group struggled to gain control of the Syria-Iraq border where ISIS now claims its caliphate, according to an intelligence report sent to Hillary Clinton. Breitbart News reported Tuesday on a “Secret” classified intelligence report sent to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other top U.S. officials and agencies in August 2012. The report confirmed that Western and Gulf states were joining with Turkey to “support” the Syrian opposition to dictator Bashar al Assad.

    If something horrifying happens, we should ignore due process and deny Americans their rights. This was basically the argument many conservatives (and Democrats) made post-9/11 to help pass the Patriot Act, and it’s exactly the argument most liberals are making when they push gun bans to people on terror watch lists. “If the FBI is watching you for suspected terrorist links,” Hillary Clinton said today in her supposedly apolitical speech, “you shouldn’t be able to just go buy a gun.” If we’re going to do this, let’s be consistent. If the FBI is conducting a criminal investigation of your suspected...

    Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange warns more information will be published about Hillary Clinton, enough to indict her if the US government is courageous enough to do so, in what he predicts will be “a very big year” for the whistleblowing website. “We have emails relating to Hillary Clinton which are pending publication,” Assange told Peston on Sunday when asked if more of her leaked electronic communications would be published. About 32,000 emails from her private server have been leaked by Wikileaks so far, but Assange would not confirm the number of emails or when they are expected to be published.

    Julian Assange, the founder of WikiLeaks, has said his organisation is preparing to publish more emails Hillary Clinton sent and received while US secretary of state. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, is under FBI investigation to determine whether she broke federal law by using her private email in sending classified information. A new WikiLeaks release of Clinton emails is likely to fan a controversy that has bedevilled her campaign and provide further ammunition for Donald Trump, her Republican presidential rival, who has used the issue to attack her.

    It was another week of news poking fresh holes in Hillary Clinton’s tattered e-mail defense. At this point, the only cover she has left are all the ongoing stonewalls. One landmark event came Wednesday, when presidential spokesman Josh Earnest for the first time referred to the FBI’s probe of the e-mails as a “criminal investigation.” Then came a Wall Street Journal scoop: One thing making it criminal is that top State Department aides sent her e-mails on “born classified” discussions of drone strikes in Pakistan. The record already shows that Secretary Clinton’s inner circle knew full well that her private...

    A State Department spokesman on Friday said that a Hillary Clinton donor’s appointment to a top secret federal advisory board despite having no experience with its activities is “not unusual” because he represented “a broad range of views.” ABC News reported earlier on Friday that in 2011, Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff Cheryl Mills directed career diplomats to appoint Rajiv Fernando, a high-frequency stock trader from Chicago, to the International Security Advisory Board (ISAB). Mills’ move — which was likely okayed by Clinton — surprised the career staffers, according to emails obtained by the legal advocacy group Citizens United. Fernando...

That has now been confirmed thanks to a stunning ABC report which reveals how a major foundation donor - one who previously had practically no experience on intellgience matters - mysteriously ended up as a...

Pagliano filed a motion to seal the document on Tuesday afternoon, which could keep details of the agreement shielded from the public if approved by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan.

His decision increases the odds that Clinton herself will be forced to testify in the case.

We know that Clinton’s own camp finally recognizes just how dangerous this email controversy has become for her. Over the...

And it certainly was a prime opportunity to lay out her views on foreign policy and America’s role in the world. But what she delivered was a 45-minute rant against Donald Trump — with nary a clue about her plans for leading America on the international stage. Worse, her string of dump-on-Trump quips might’ve worked better if she had substituted her name for his, starting with her attack on Trump’s “series of rants” — a perfect description of her own speech....

During those years Clinton was at the center of numerous scandals, including Whitewater, Travelgate and Filegate, which were also the subject of investigations.

    Irritated that the media would dare to pose a question about the legality of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's unsecured email communications, President Obama refused to comment, suggesting that "whether she did anything that was really wrong is a matter for voters to decide.

As part of that effort, Hillary called into Meet the Press Daily, where Chuck Todd took a skeptical view of the spin coming from Team Hillary, as Leah Barkoukis notes at Townhall. Todd zeroed in on one statement from the IG report in which Hillary refused to use an official State Department e-mail. Until yesterday, Hillary claimed she wanted one system for “convenience,”...
