  • BREAKING: FBI Notes Reveal Security Concerns Over Huma Abedin

    10/28/2016 6:26:41 AM PDT · by TigerClaws · 74 replies
    Protective detail assigned to guard former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her two residences complained that her closest aide Huma Abedin often overrode standard security protocols during trips to the Middle East, and personally changed procedures for handling classified information, including highly sensitive intelligence briefs the CIA prepared for the president, newly released FBI documents reveal. The security agents, who were interviewed as witnesses in the FBI’s investigation of Clinton’s use of an unauthorized private email server to send classified information, complained that Abedin had unusual sway over security policies during Clinton’s 2009-2013 tenure at Foggy Bottom.

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hillary Clinton's defense against charges that she has lawlessly handled classified information in her emails, and by using her private email server, has been that the FBI performed a complete investigation and found no violation of law. This morning, thanks to investigative reporting by the Wall Street Journal1 and Fox News2, we may understand why the FBI dropped the case. Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia, a Clinton confidant, directed almost $800,000 into the political coffers of the wife of this high-ranking FBI official overseeing the email investigation.

    A Lancaster, Pa., man was sentenced to 18 months in prison on charges of hacking into celebrity email accounts and obtaining nude photographs of Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande, Kate Upton, and others. Ryan Collins, 36, pled guilty in March to a felony violation of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. Investigators said that they have not uncovered any evidence linking Collins to the actual leaks of the photos or that he shared or uploaded the information he obtained.

Clinton's ties to the Common Good VA - a Virginia state PAC run by Clinton's long-time friend and advisor Terry McAuliffe, its governor - came under scrutiny this week after the Wall Street Journal reported that the group donated heavily to the state senate campaign of Jill McCabe. Her husband Andrew McCabe led the FBI investigation into Clinton's emails. Andrew McCabe, now the deputy director of...

"Oh, I'm not a security guard," the man says. "I'm a security monitor. I only notify people if there's a robbery." He looks over at the armed robbers in stocking masks, holding a hostage. "There's a robbery." Like the security monitor, Americans are passively observing a robbery, the theft of democracy. We're witnessing, in real time, an insurrection, a coup d'état.

    Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, an important ally of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, funneled nearly $700,000 in donations and support to the campaign of the spouse of an FBI official who then oversaw Clinton's email investigation. The Virginia governor's office was full of denials about the connection on Sunday. "Any insinuation that his support" for state Senate candidate Dr. Jill McCabe, wife of FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, "was tied to anything other than his desire to elect candidates who would help pass his agenda is ridiculous," a spokesman for the governor told the Wall Street Journal. McAuliffe's PAC donated $475,000...

    A top State Department official offered a “quid pro quo” to an FBI investigator to declassify an e-mail from Hillary Clinton’s private server in exchange for allowing the bureau to operate in countries where it was banned, stunning new documents revealed Monday. The FBI documents show that Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy pitched the deal to the unnamed agent, allegedly as part of an effort to back up Clinton’s claim that she did not send or receive classified documents on the server in her Westchester home. “[Redacted] indicated he had been contacted by [Kennedy], Undersecretary of State, who had asked...

    A senior State Department official sought to shield Hillary Clinton last year by pressuring the FBI to drop its insistence that an email on the private server she used while secretary of state contained classified information, according to records of interviews with FBI officials released on Monday. The accusation against Patrick Kennedy, the State Department's most senior manager, appears in the latest release of interview summaries from the Federal Bureau of Investigation's year-long investigation into Clinton's sending and receiving classified government secrets via her unauthorized server. Although the FBI decided against declassifying the email's contents, the claim of interference added...

    Bill Clinton once reportedly told senior White House reporter Sarah McClendon, “Sarah, there’s a government inside the government, and I don’t control it.” Average citizens who talk about things like that, however, are typically referred to as “Conspiracy Theorists” as if its a pejorative term. Then again, how much of a conspiracy is it when the FBI’s own documents confirm the existence of something referred to as “The Shadow Government”? Check out page 56 from the FBI’s files on the Clinton investigation which is making the rounds on Reddit:

    On Monday’s broadcast of “MSNBC Live,” former Governor Howard Dean (D-VT) responded to documents alleging the State Department had an email on Democratic presidential nominee former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s server unclassified in a quid pro quo with the FBI by arguing “somebody made this up.” He further argued, “Not one single scandal that Hillary Clinton’s been…accused of has ever, ever been proved.” Dean said, “This sounds like nothing. Who’s saying this? This is nothing. This is the last batch — couple of batches of emails have revealed exactly nothing. Now who is pushing this notion that there was...
  • FBI Docs: Clinton ‘Blatantly Disregarded’ Security Protocols, ‘Insulted and Embarrassed’ Ambassadors

    The FBI has made public a slew of documents related to the investigation around Hillary Clinton and allegations that classified information has improperly handled during her tenure as Secretary of State. The revelations they found were startling, as outlined in the many hundreds of pages of internal transcripts that were released, which show Clinton's blatant disregard for not just protocol, but also common decency and professional behavior. One agent with the Department of Homeland Security that was interviewed related a "stark difference" between the State Department under Condoleezza Rice and her successor Hillary Clinton. The agent describes how although Rice...

    A retired U.S. Marine Corps general who last served as vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff pleaded guilty on Monday in a federal court to making false statements to the FBI during an investigation into leaks of classified information.

Cartwright also in 2012 confirmed classified information about an unnamed country to Daniel Klaidman, then a reporter for...
