Posted on 05/13/2019 11:04:38 AM PDT by billorites
Judicial Watch, which eagerly wades into inquiries federal investigators wont touch, reported last week that the Obama White House might have orchestrated a cover-up of the Hillary Clinton emails. With Nixon, they told us the cover-up was worse than the crime. That might not be the case here. But its a close race.
The Obama administration was apparently tracking a Freedom of Information Act request pursuing records related to then-Secretary of State Clintons use of an unsecured, non-government email system as early as 2012, says Judicial Watch.
These documents suggest the Obama White House knew about the Clinton email lies being told to the public at least as early as December 2012, says Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton.
Then months after the Obama White House involvement, the State Department responded to the requestor, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, falsely stating that no such records existed.
The records were found in a cache of documents Judicial Watch had received from a court-ordered discovery centered upon whether Clinton intentionally attempted to evade the Freedom of Information Act by using a nongovernment email system and whether the State Department acted in bad faith in processing Judicial Watchs FOIA request for communications from Clintons office.
Maybe Clinton kept her emails on a private server for legitimate reasons. But what those could possibly be are a mystery. It seems far more likely that it was, as Judicial Watch and many others have suggested, an effort to keep her communications secret rather than open, which is in violation of the spirit if not the letter of the law.
As has been documented, Clinton could face a prison sentence if shes found to have violated the Espionage Act with her private email server. While a coverup rigged by the scandal-free Obama administration is certainly outrageous, Clintons initial actions are worse. U.S District Court Judge Royce Lamberth, whos been handling Judicial Watchs requests, has called her email arrangement one of the gravest modern offenses to government transparency.
Did Hillary Clinton use her private email as secretary of State to thwart the lofty goal of transparency, Lamberth asked in a December 2018 opinion.
But lets not excuse the Obama administrations attempt to stonewall transparency. Thats not the way our government works or is supposed to work. As Lamberth has written, in responding to requests under FOIA, executive branch agencies . . . should act promptly, and in a spirit of cooperation, recognizing that such agencies are servants of the public.
That truth of that last clause has escaped both the Obama administration and the Clinton political machine. They see themselves as masters.
I’m betting Obama had his own private server.
Has anyone crosschecked the emails Hillary turned over against those found on the computers of her correspondents?
reported last week that the Obama White House might have orchestrated a cover-up of the Hillary Clinton emails.
That’s not even the worst thing the Kenyan from Indonesia did during his usurpation.
The recent story about Huma “learning” that Hillary’s email had been hacked and then saying “OMG” and firing off an email to people to stop sending sensitive material to Hillary should have been a bigger news item.
Huma’s warning email basically sent the message: “Hey everybody, you know that secret and illegal email server that Hillary has stashed in her bathroom so that she can circumvent all the FOIA laws? You should probably stop pushing classified material to that server because, ummmmmmmm, people found out about it.”
In my opinion, they knew about it from the beginning and they knew everything about it. obams and the Clintons ate the two greatest curses ever to be put on America. Wait, on second thought, I can’t say that. The bastards that put these three in office are the bigger sons of bitches.
What ever they knew and when ever they knew it, we’re not going to know any time soon if ever.
The private server in the closet wasn't used to conduct "illegal" business on the part of the Clinton Foundation. It was set up so they could conduct the CIA's business outside any scrutiny by Congress or the White House ... while giving Congress and the White House plausible deniability about any of it in the event the crap hit the fan and the whole operation was exposed.
Everyone in Congress and the White House knew what was going on, too.
Unless you are Chinese or Russian or..?
I had not thought about it that way, but seeing how the CIA has operated, you are probably right.
I believe a copy of that server with all the email was made and taken to a more secure location. Then, the server was destroyed, making everyone believe all the data was destroyed too. Not a chance with the criminal Clintons and their co-conspirator, Obama.
Everything and right from the start. Jail him too. Ex-pres or not.
On the bright side, Hillary said she would take down “half of Washington” if she is threatened.
This makes sense and love your theory.
It will warm Freedom’s heart if the traitors and seditionists are brought to Justice.
