  • Faced with blistering questions, Hillary STILL claims she never emailed classified info

    Canada Free Press ^ | 03/09/16 | Robert Laurie
    So far, in excess of 2,000 Hillarys emails have been deemed classified due to the information they contained. They occupy multiple levels of classification, and at least a 100 of them were written by Hillary herself. Yet Hillary is still maintaining that she never sent even one shred of classified material. How is that possible? As Bret Baier says in the clip below: The State Department has redacted and declared 2,101 of your work emails classified - at least at the confidential level. 44 Classified as secret, 22 classified as top secret. So you said at a March press conference...

    Liar I often feel like Im one of many people who just keep playing a completely absurd game with Hillary Clinton. Its start with her making a completely absurd claim: In four years as Secretary of State, she neither sent nor received a single e-mail that contained classified information. Thats like the CFO of your company claiming he never sent or received an e-mail that had numbers in it. Its that absurd. Yet this is Hillary Clinton and she learned to lie from the master, whose mantra is Deny, deny, deny! Of course, he was talking about his having cheated...

    The latest deep dive into the bowels of Hillary Clinton’s private email server have turned up one statistic which was previously unavailable for public discussion. Much of the material found among the thousands of classified documents was sent to the former Secretary of State by others… frequently her closest aides, but sometimes coming from lower level diplomats, other people at State or occasionally by outsiders with no US security clearance at all. But how many of them was Clinton personally responsible for creating or editing and hitting the Send button? The WaPo has done the digging for us this time...

    Chicago Tribune ^ | 3/06/16 | Rosalind S. Helderman, Tom Hamburger
    **SNIP** Kirby, the State Department spokesman, said the agency "takes the protection of sensitive information seriously and our staff are aware of the appropriate channels for transmitting classified information." "We stand by the redactions we have made," he said. Still, some diplomats who have reviewed their emails that have now been classified have expressed puzzlement. Several said in interviews that they thought the State Department's review process relied on an overly broad interpretation of public-records laws that restrict release of certain information involving relations with foreign governments.

    EXCLUSIVE: One of the classified email chains discovered on Hillary Clinton's personal unsecured server discussed an Afghan national's ties to the CIA and a report that he was on the agency's payroll, a U.S. government official with knowledge of the document told Fox News. The discussion of a foreign national working with the U.S. government raises security implications – an executive order signed by President Obama said such unauthorized disclosures are 'presumed to cause damage to the national security." The U.S. government official said the Clinton email exchange, which referred to a New York Times report, was among 29 classified...

    More than 15 percent of the latest batch of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's emails released Saturday contain classified information, with three of the messages being labeled "secret" -- continuing to add to the questions surrounding her email use. One of the messages is an extensive missive from David Satterfield, a top U.S. diplomat to Egypt, who told top officials in both the White House and State Department about negotiations in the Sinai. The entire contents of the messages are now deemed "secret," though there is no indication they were marked as such at the time. The message was...

    State Department officials have determined that classified information was sent to the personal email accounts of former Secretary of State Colin Powell and the senior staff of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, NBC News has learned. The IG came upon the material during the course of a review of how current and past secretaries of state deal with classified material and with email. The review was prompted by the current controversy over Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's use of a personal computer server to conduct government business while secretary of state. Linick's findings will be seen as helpful to...

    In June 2014, a worker at the Y-12 National Security Complex in Tennessee was surprised to find U.S. nuclear secrets inside a trash bag marked for disposal along with standard rubbish. Taking a closer look, the worker found 19 more documents in the bag that were either marked classified or were later determined to contain information that should have been labeled secret. A dozen more bags of trash sat nearby, awaiting transport to an open landfill where Y-12 workers routinely dump garbage with no bearing on national security. When employees of Babcock & Wilcox Technical Services, Y-12, LLC, the contractor...

    I rarely get the opportunity to say anything positive about ABC News personality George Stephanopoulos, but he did have a moment this morning on his show, The Week, when he confronted Hillary Clinton about the Top Secret documents which we now know were stored in her infamous bathroom closet server. The story had little to do with the content of the actual emails (which we’ll likely never live to see, as is appropriate in matters of national security) and everything to do with her running excuses about how she did nothing wrong. First she is confronted about her insistence that...

    EXCLUSIVE: The intelligence community has now deemed some of Hillary Clinton’s emails “too damaging" to national security to release under any circumstances, according to a U.S. government official close to the ongoing review. A second source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, backed up the finding. The decision to withhold the documents in full, and not provide even a partial release with redactions, further undercuts claims by the State Department and the Clinton campaign that none of the intelligence in the emails was classified when it hit Clinton's personal server. Fox News is told the emails include...

    Another nice catch from the Daily Caller’s Chuck Ross brings into sharp relief another aspect of the danger to national security that Hillary Clinton’s secret e-mail system created.

She reached out to the State Department to inform a familiar figure of the loss: Records obtained by The Daily Caller through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit show [Cheryl] Mills revealed that she lost her Blackberry in...

    Golly, how could that have happened? Hillary Clinton’s use of an insecure secret email server was obviously a problem in and of itself, but the steady drip, drip, drip of information has revealed that Mrs. Clinton’s latest scandal goes well beyond mere procedural issues. Just last week we learned that her communications contained information from some of the country’s most secretive and highly guarded programs. We also learned that China and Russia probably had access to it. Now, because it’s a day that ends in ‘Y,’ Hillary’s email scandal has gotten worse. According to the New York Post, the FBI...

    Hey kids, what time is it?* According to former Attorney General Michael Mukasey, it’s time for Loretta Lynch and the Department of Justice to do their jobs and charge Hillary Clinton with mishandling classified information — at the least. Nodding to the expansion of the FBI’s probe into areas of corruption, Mukasey argued in Friday’s Wall Street Journal that the 1300-plus pieces of evidence already on hand more than justifies initial charges — and cites David Petraeus as a precedent: No criminality can be charged against Mrs. Clinton in connection with any of this absent proof that she had what...

    In movies, documents have a large, red stamp at the top: Classified. The stamped documents - which have been replaced by e-mails, phones, or thumb drives - have to be protected from the bad guys at all costs. Too bad Hillary Clinton doesn't understand what every American moviegoer over age five knows instinctively. The Intelligence Community's inspector general Charles McCullough III recently reported that at "least several dozen of the emails sent and received by Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of state contained classified material, including intelligence material classified at the highest levels." The e-mails varied in their levels...

    Hillary says: "...nothing that this says changes the fact that I never sent or received material marked classified." So I looked it up. There is no Classified level in the US government system! The levels are Unclassified, Confidential, Secret, and Top Secret. So she never did send or receive material marked classified, because there is no such thing. And that makes her statement literally true, but misleading in the vilest possible manner.

    I hope the FBI is checking into the reason WHY Hillary had highly sensitive information on her private, non-government server that was HIDDEN FROM CONGRESS AND POSSIBLE OVERSIGHT BY OTHER GOV'T AGENCIES. Did Zero order her to do this as part of some treasonous plot to forward our national security information to hostile countries such as Iran? Did Hillary SELL access to her private server to the highest bidders by giving them passwords to her email accounts where classified information was located? Although Hillary was Secretary of State, did she have 'need to know' for each of the various Top...

    State Department officials released roughly 2,900 pages of Hillary Clinton's private emails early Friday morning, several hours past their target of late Thursday evening. State first set a broad target of somewhere between 6 p.m. and 10 p.m. Thursday. But as the night wore on, that shifted to a 2 a.m. estimate. They were finally released right around 1 a.m. The late release was on top of State's failure to release all the emails by New Year's Eve. Instead of releasing everything on Dec. 31, State said it needed another few days to finish the group of Clinton messages. The...

    Has the State Department released a smoking gun in the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal? In a thread from June 2011, Hillary exchanges e-mails with Jake Sullivan, then her deputy chief of staff and now her campaign foreign-policy adviser, in which she impatiently waits for a set of talking points. When Sullivan tells her that the source is having trouble with the secure fax, Hillary then orders Sullivan to have the data stripped of its markings and sent through a non-secure channel. That should be game, set, and match, yes?

A day after assuming office as secretary of state, Clinton signed a Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement that laid out criminal penalties for "any unauthorized disclosure" of classified information. Experts have guessed that Clinton signed such an agreement, but a copy of her specific contract, obtained by the Competitive Enterprise Institute through an open records request and...

But officials now say the spying investigation has all but fizzled, leaving the Justice Department to decide whether to prosecute Ms. Raphel for the far less serious charge of keeping classified information in her home. The fallout from the investigation has in the meantime seriously damaged Ms. Raphels reputation, built over decades in some of the worlds most volatile countries.

    Hillary Clinton's personal attorney balked at the State Department's first effort to erase a newly-classified email from the thumb drive containing about 30,000 messages she turned over to her former agency, according to just-released correspondence. Clinton lawyer David Kendall said deleting the now-secret message could run afoul of promises he previously made to the House Benghazi committee and two inspectors general to preserve electronic copies of all Clinton's work-related message from her tenure as secretary of state. "I have responded to each preservation request by confirming to the requestor that I would take reasonable steps to preserve the 55,000 pages...

    The FBI seized four servers from the State Department building a few weeks ago as part of the investigation into classified material improperly stored on Hillary Clintons secret email server, particularly the Top Secret documents that have been discovered in her email trove. This revelation comes from Bill Gertz at the Washington Free Beacon, citing anonymous sources familiar with the investigation. Gertz notes that the State Department referred questions about the seized servers to the FBI, which declined to comment on the matter. It would be interesting to know exactly what the FBI computer forensics team is looking for on...

    The Secret Service has had a bad couple of years, with prostitution scandals and security gaps that have embarrassed the agency — and in one instance, had an intruder running through the White House. As part of the effort to bolster security around the President, the agency has gone on a hiring spree, bringing in fresh talent to address some of the recent failures. The Washington Post’s Carol Leonnig, who has reported more than a few of those failures, now reports that the rush to man the posts has resulted in agents working in sensitive areas without the proper...

    State Department says classified material on Hillary's home-brew server was so sensitive that the safe it gave her lawyer to store the emails wasn't secure enough The State Department has told Senate investigators that it didn't provide Hillary Rodham Clinton's lawyer with a secure-enough method to read now-highly classified material from her homebrew email server because it didn't anticipate that the messages would be deemed so secret. In July, State Department officials installed a safe at the office of attorney David Kendall after the government determined some of Clinton's emails may have contained classified information. But it said last week...

    The email czar hired by the State Department to handle the agencys response to the Hillary Clinton email scandal has a second hidden conflict of interest: she received some of the same classified emails that were also sent to Hillary Clinton via her private email system, Breitbart News has learned.

    Hillary Clinton paid to hide the identity of the people running her private email server, Breitbart News has learned. Her attempt to hide details about her server has allowed another faceless company access to her classified email information, while doing little to nothing to secure that information from hackers. Clintons private email domain clintonemail.com was initially purchased by Clinton aide Eric Hoteham, who listed the Clintons Chappaqua, New York home as the contact address for his purchase. But the domain is actually registered to an Internet company designed to hide the true identity of the people running it. Clintonemail.com is...
