Hillary Clinton purchased some of the BlackBerries she used as secretary of state on eBay, Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz said on Wednesday.
Thats what she liked, so she did it. It creates this huge vulnerability. And its unnecessary, Chaffetz, who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, said during a forum hosted by the American Enterprise Institute.
The forum was held to discuss last years hack of the Office of Personnel Management.
I dont want to get into this too much, but part of what was happening with the secretary of state is, she was acquiring technology that wasnt even supported by BlackBerry. You couldnt buy it. She was actually buying this stuff off of eBay because somebody was selling their old machine, Chaffetz said.
Clinton used at least eight different BlackBerries while in office, according to the FBIs email investigation report, released last week. None were provided by the State Department. In contrast, Clintons circle of aides and all other State Department employees used a government-issued device.
When Clinton first took office, she requested a government BlackBerry similar to one that the National Security Agency built for President Obama. But when the request was rejected, she continued using a private device that was hooked up to her private email server.
The State Department made other offers to provide Clinton with agency-issued hardware later in her tenure, but was rebuffed.
Neither Clinton nor her attorneys were able to provide old BlackBerries to federal investigators. It is unclear where they went, though one aide to Bill Clinton told investigators that he smashed at least two of the devices with a hammer.
It is also unclear exactly how Clintons purchase of used BlackBerries put her communications at greater risk. Some of those questions may be answered in House hearings scheduled for this week and next. Chaffetzs committee is holding a hearing on Thursday regarding the State Departments handling of Freedom of Information Act requests. And next week, FBI director James Comey is slated to testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee.
Hillary Clinton treats national security like a toddler playing with his father’s loaded revolver.
Chuck Ross isn't really with it, is he?
Probably from a seller (ahem) in China.
I wonder where the bought the hammers to smash the phones.
Yes Charlie Tree had a bunch ....
I’ve bought refurbed PCs on Ebay, the first thing I do is run a malware & other security checks after I unbox ‘em.
“Yes Charlie Tree had a bunch ....”
Yup, there ya go.
At some point she said she didn’t won any didn’t she? Good gwaad. She gets queen of the world we are so over.
Oh, I’m certain she used the $15,000-per government kind for that (for budget play).
Another problem is that all our leaders have this “captain at the helm” complex. They act as though in day to day operations, and in crises, and in military ops, they must be in real time, directing everything.
It makes people worship them. They like being seen that way.
Untraceable back to the government.
The two of them are worth $111 million combined.I’m worth much,*much* less and would never buy a used cell phone.

Ad then it follows that they need secure cell phones, because every minute they are saving the world. The fact is, they are covering up schemes and very little else.
Yeah we wouldn’t even allow those to be used in a corporate environment, much less a government one!
