  • Hillary's emails are on a homebrew server registered to a pseudonym

    Business Insider ^ | 03/04/2015 | JACK GILLUM AND TED BRIDIS, ASSOCIATED PRESS
    The computer server that transmitted and received Hillary Clinton's emails — on a private account she used exclusively for official business when she was secretary of state — traced back to an internet service registered to her family's home in Chappaqua, New York, according to internet records reviewed by The Associated Press. The highly unusual practice of a Cabinet-level official physically running her own email would have given Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential candidate, impressive control over limiting access to her message archives. It also would distinguish Clinton's secretive email practices as far more sophisticated than some politicians, including Mitt...

    The Boston Herald ^ | 3/04/15 | Tom Shattuck
    Hillary Clinton apparently learned nothing from her time as a junior staff attorney on the House Judiciary Committee during Watergate. Lesson One: It’s not the crime, it’s the coverup. Forty-odd years later, Clinton’s too-clever-by-half effort to avoid creating any damning email trail during her time in Foggy Bottom has emerged as the petard on which her much-ballyhooed 2016 Democratic front-runner status could be hoisted.
  • Benghazi committee says Hillary used multiple personal email accounts

    The House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi will issue new requests to Hillary Clinton for emails from multiple personal accounts she used during her tenure as secretary of state. It was not as if she had both an official and a private email account. She did not use personal email in addition to government email. She used personal email in lieu of government email,” Gowdy said. “And she had more than one private email account.”

    Hillary was probably fuming when she discovered that someone took a gmail identity before she could get it. That someone was me. If government official around the world received emails from her that were not on a State Department server, they could be assured that it was really her. If she really would like to have it, I am willing to sell it for a price. Let's see, how much did she make on those cattle futures?

    Asked if Clinton made a mistake by using a personal email address exclusively for State Department business, Earnest said State Department officials have handled the situation properly by asking Clinton to forward them any emails pertaining to official business so they can be archived."It's the responsibility of State Department officials to ensure they are in compliance with the Federal Records Act," he said. "What the State Department officials have done is to forward their personal email records that pertain to official government business. That's exactly what Secretary Clinton has done."According to several media reports Tuesday, Clinton did not even...

    On the Bloomberg TV show he co-hosts, John Heilemann—asked today to quantify on a scale of "1-to-Godzilla" how "dumb" politically it was of Hillary Clinton to use personal email—answered "Godzilla with Mothra riding on his back dumb." Heilemann also revealed having reached out to former Hillary aides and that "to a person" they responded that the situation is a political "disaster." Mark Halperin claimed that, substantively, Hillary might have "a leg to stand on" but that politically her decision to use personal email was "moronic." View the video here.

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a personal e-mail account to exclusively conduct official business during her time at the State Department, a move that raises questions about access to the full archive of her correspondence, as well as the possibility that she violated federal law requiring official messages to be retained for the record. The existence of the account was discovered by the House select committee investigating the deadly 2012 attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and was first reported by The New York Times.

    WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton exclusively used a personal email account to conduct government business as secretary of state, State Department officials said, and may have violated federal requirements that officials’ correspondence be retained as part of the agency’s record. Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department. Her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act.

    Senate Republicans on Thursday asked President Obama to turn over all communications he and his aides have had with the IRS since 2010, hoping to find out whether the tax collection agency shared private taxpayer information with political operatives at the White House. The request, made in a letter obtained by The Washington Times, is signed by Senate Finance Chairman Orrin G. Hatch and all 13 other Republicans on the committee, and is addressed specifically to Mr. Obama, saying they want to see if his employees broke the law by acquiring or sharing private information.

    New tensions are emerging in the relationship between allies of President Obama and Hillary Clinton. At issue is the fate of the political equivalent of gold dust — the enormous email list, comprised of many millions of supporters and donors, that the Obama team has compiled over the course of his two presidential campaigns. The Clinton camp would dearly love to get its hands on the list, but there is no promise as yet that the president’s aides will comply. There are “large concerns” about the lists among Clinton supporters, one Hillary ally told The Hill. To the Clintons and...

    If there was ever any doubt that the IRS is stonewalling production of the missing Lois Lerner e-mails, recent IRS filings in the Judicial Watch lawsuit in the court of U.S. District Court Judge Emmett G. Sullivan remove all ambiguity.  Even though the IRS has stipulated to Judicial Watch that backup systems exist to preserve all federal government e-mails, it has not bothered to search them, and now admits that to the court. A press release from Judicial Watch that has received far too little media attention (with the conspicuous exception of Legal Insurrection) explains: IRS attorneys conceded that...

"The three missiles were discovered by chance when the Iraqi security forces captured former Baath party official Khoder al-Douri who revealed during interrogation the location of the missiles saying they carried nuclear heads," the sources said.

    Brain-wave sensing machines have been used to ‘telepathically’ control everything from real-life helicopters to characters in a computer game. Now the technology has gone a step further by allowing someone in India to send an email to his colleague in France using nothing but the power of his mind. The researchers used electroencephalography (EEG) headsets to record electrical activity from neurons firing in the brain, and convert the words ‘hola’ and ‘ciao’ into binary. In EEG, electrical currents in the brain are linked with different thoughts that are then fed into a computer interface. This computer analyses the signal and...

    (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected Google Inc's bid to dismiss a lawsuit accusing it of violating federal wiretap law when it accidentally collected emails and other personal data while building its popular Street View program. The justices left intact a September 2013 ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which refused to exempt Google from liability under the federal Wiretap Act for having inadvertently intercepted emails, user names, passwords and other data from private Wi-Fi networks to create Street View, which provides panoramic views of city streets. The lawsuit arose soon after the Mountain...

A review of IRS spending by the Free Beacon shows the agency has spent a massive amount on what it labeled as IT/software and data processing contracts in the past five fiscal years....

    Doctors at the Philadelphia Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Regional Office are sitting around with nothing to do, despite the fact that hundreds of thousands of U.S. veterans continue to wait for medical appointments. “Urgent! Need work for In-house Physicians,” wrote the Office’s assistant veterans service center manager Ameen Khabir in the subject line of a June 19 email to colleagues, which he placed on “High” importance. The Regional Office is responsible for processing compensation, benefits, employment and insurance claims.

    The IRS is spinning a tale of bureaucratic incompetence to explain the vanishing emails from former Tax Exempt Organizations doyenne Lois Lerner and six other IRS employees.

The IRS was under a legal obligation to retain the information because of a litigation hold.
