House panel looking into Reddit post about Clinton's email server
The Hill ^ | 9/19/2016 | Katie Bo Williams

Posted on 09/19/2016 3:26:03 PM PDT by NYRepublican72

The House Oversight Committee is reviewing a Reddit post that alleges an IT specialist who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private server sought advice on how to alter the contents of “VERY VIP” emails, according to Rep. Mark Meadows (R-N.C.).

Meadows is the chairman of the panel’s Government Operations subcommittee.

“The Reddit post issue and its connection to Paul Combetta is currently being reviewed by OGR staff and evaluations are being made as to the authenticity of the post,” Meadows told The Hill. Reddit users appear to have uncovered a two-year-old post from an account believed to belong to Combetta, an engineer with Platte River Networks. The Denver, Colo.-based firm managed Clinton’s private server.

I love it when the Internet does the job that the corrupt FBI decided not to/overlooked.

As if these fools didn't remember what Buckhead did to Dan Rather. The rich and powerful no longer have all the control.

That was fast. It took about a week for the Dan Rather expose to find its way to the masses.

No. They are part of the Uniparty and would be happy to have Hillary in charge.

They are FAKE OPPOSITION but the same puppet masters own both parties.

It’s a fake democracy.

Trump is going to destroy the Uniparty and take over the GOP!

Hey Rino Ryan,

Now is your Chance to do the Right Thing for ONCE in your Life:

Congress has ALL the power in washington, the executive and judicial branch operate according to the whims of CONGRESS!

Sec. 193. Privilege of witnesses
No witness is privileged to refuse to testify to any fact, or to produce any paper, respecting which he shall be examined by either House of Congress, or by any joint committee established by a joint or concurrent resolution of the two Houses of Congress, or by any committee of either House, upon the ground that his testimony to such fact or his production of such paper may tend to disgrace him or otherwise render him infamous.”

Simply look up Hinds Precedents, especially chapters 53 and 51, and Cannon’s Precedents, especially chapters 184-185. You’ll find numerous detailed cases of Congress asserting its power, arresting people, holding them until they agreed to answer questions, and then releasing them. Some of these people did not refuse to appear, but simply failed to satisfactorily answer questions. One has to wonder how a previous Congress might have responded to Alberto Gonzales’s endless recitations of “I do not recall.”

Congress can Remove the President
Congress can remove the head of every executive agency Congress can remove ALL of their employees
Congress can Abolish every agency they so choose
Congress can remove EVERY JUDGE IN AMERICA, including every supreme court justice.
Congress can abolish every federal court except the supreme Court
Congress can decide which cases the Judicial Branch can hear and decide
CONGRESS can Imprison ANYONE they want for any reason they so desire for as long as they wish.
Congress can declare WAR

No other governing body has even 10% of the power CONGRESS has!!


Congress has the authority to arrest and imprison those found in Contempt. The power extends throughout the United States and is an inherent power (does not depend upon legislated act)

If found in Contempt the person can be arrested under a warrant of the Speaker of the House of Representatives or President of the Senate, by the respective Sergeant at Arms.

Statutory criminal contempt is an alternative to inherent contempt.

Under the inherent contempt power Congress may imprison a person for a specific period of time or an indefinite period of time, except a person imprisoned by the House of Representatives may not be imprisoned beyond adjournment of a session of Congress.

Imprisonment may be coercive or punitive.

I was just referring to the interval between the investigator’s conclusion, and making it to “the press.” I don’t expect anything to come of it in Congress, beyond some political hay. I see USNews picked up the story too.

You’re right. The only way that justice gets served here is if a President Trump demands a full prosecution by his new attorney general and FBI director.

“Democrats have slammed the investigation as a partisan attack designed to damage Clinton’s presidential run.”

They are right. But if there was intentional tampering, her reputation should be damaged, along with Comey’s and that of everyone else involved.

The FBI and politicians investigate just enough to make it look like they’re doing something. But investigate to indict? Nah...can’t have that.
