  • Clinton Signed NDA Laying Out Criminal Penalties for Mishandling of Classified Info

    Washington Free Beacon via AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS ^ | 06 November 2015 | BY: Lachlan Markay
    Hillary Clinton has repeatedly denied any wrong doing when she used a private email account on a private email server while serving as secretary of state. She insisted that she hadn’t violated any sort of policies regarding classified information. Well, it appears that a ‘smoking gun’ has emerged- and it’s BIG! Clinton did, in fact sign a non-disclosure agreement acknowledging her responsibility to ascertain whether information shared by her was, in fact, classified. Moreover, the document Clinton signed clearly lays out stiff criminal penalties for “any unauthorized disclosure” of classified information.

    Today is the day. After months, even years of anticipation, former Secretary of State and current Democrat presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton will testify under oath in front of the Benghazi Select Committee. Clinton will not only testify about what happened on the night of September 11, 2012, but will be asked a series of questions about her use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State. Since the Select Committee discovered her private server earlier this year, we've learned Clinton had at least 400 documents considered classified, with at least four deemed top secret, on her...

As part of his plea agreement, Carter faces four years in prison and will be required to pay restitution.

The review comes after both Clintons presidential campaign and the State Department cast doubt on the findings by I. Charles McCullough III, arguing that the emails may have been over-classified.

The documents include material directly responsive to a FOI request I made back in 2012 after the Benghazi terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds. However, the material was not produced at the time, as required by law. Once again, there appears to be nobody who holds government officials and agencies accountable for their routine violation of this law. So the infractions occur frequently and with impunity.

Intelligence community officials who were brought into the FOIA review process amid concerns over potentially classified material have alerted their inspector general that State FOIA officers are altering classification decisions, according to a report by the Washington Times. After intelligence officials have flagged parts of emails as classified, State Department employees have instead redacted those same passages under one of nine exemptions permitted under FOIA.
