Scarborough Accuses Kerry State Department of Hillary 'Cover-up'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 08/24/2015 5:05:57 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

At what point will members of the Obama administration, from the president himself to John Kerry and other senior officials, down to the workaday folks of the West Wing, decide that Hillary's email scandal is doing intolerable damage to whatever's left of their legacy, and decide to pull the plug?

A significant line was crossed on today's Morning Joe, when Joe Scarborough flatly and repeatedly accused John Kerry's State Department of engaging in a "cover-up" on Hillary's behalf. How much longer will Kerry be willing to sacrifice his reputation on the altar of Hillary's presidential ambitions?

When the word “cover-up” is put on the table and no one protests, how much longer will the Obama admin hang with Hillary until it pulls the plug on her?

Ping to Liberal Media Criticism list.

According to Howard Dean and Hillary Clinton, this is all the fault of the bored press and the right wing conspirators. Hillary must DEMAND a Special Prosecutor to save her good name. I say we need to get this option out there before the bored press and the vast right wing ruin this honest yet misunderstood poor public servant.

Mika deeply saddened. I guess things have really progressed to the bottom when even a lamebrained twit like Joe can not only see, but state the obvious.

Wasn’t Joe one of the Congressmen who went after Bubba in a big way during the Monica scandal and cover-up and perjury proceedings? Probably he’s reverting back to those days when he sees the word “Clinton” in connection with a scandal, even though it’s a different Clinton.

That's easy: Orders from 'Da Boss'.

But I don't think 'Da Boss' is going to hang in there much longer. He needs Elizabeth Warren to say OK to Biden or to change her mind about going for the golden ring. Or to say OK to some other viable and manipulable Obama Fanboy who has yet to emerge. But right now it looks like Biden is a very iffy candidate but the only one in sight. Maybe the Starbucks guy will bite the bullet and go for it.

Interesting times, as they say.

That's not much of a sacrifice.

Nixon blamed his subordinates? That should give Hillary an idea...or two.

A shady aspect of top Hillary aide, Huma Abdein's unusual State Department career: she founded a private company called "Zain Endeavors LLC" eleven days before she left Hillary's employ (named for her infant son).......

BGRND Abedin worked as a full-time staffer to Hillary Clinton January 2009-June 2012; she was then given a "special government employee" designation designed to allow individuals who fill "an unmet government need for rare or unique expertise" to retain their private-sector positions while receiving compensation from the government.

Judiciary Chair, Sen Charles Grassley, has been pressing the State Department to answer questions over Abedin's lucrative govt job arrangement. Grassley wrote in a June 13 letter, “It appears that Teneo Strategies may have been compensating Ms. Abedin for gathering information from government sources for the purpose of informing investment decisions of her consulting clients - or in other words, political intelligence.

Sen Grassley observed: "This raises important questions about whether Abedin's dual role was adequately disclosed to government officials who may have provided her information without realizing that she was being paid by private investors to gather information.”

Grassley's letter recounted:

<><> Abedin allegedly sent or received more than 7,000 emails on her US government account that involved Teneo's Doug Band, a close confidante and travel companion of the globe-trotting, buck-raking Bill Clinton;

<><> one email exchange involved Teneo's Doug Band pressuring Abedin to encourage her State Department boss, Hillary Clinton, to facilitate a White House appointment for one of his clients. Judith Rodin, then-president of the Rockefeller Foundation, "donated hundreds of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation," Mr. Band allegedly noted in his email to Ms. Abedin.

<><> email evidence allegedly suggests that Ms. Abedin and another Hillary aide, Cheryl Mills, colluded to find a way to ensure the US govt paid for Ms. Abedin's travel to and from New York."

<><> Abedin apparently falsifed govt financial documents to get $33,000 tax dollars for paid State Department leave she said she hadn't used.

<><> yet, multiple allegations received by Grassley's Judiciary Committee indicated Abedin had actually taken leave during her time as a govt employee, casting doubt on whether Abedin should have received $33,000 in taxpayer money.

<><> allegations surfaced that the State Dept personnel rule was quietly bent to permit Abedin to collect her government paycheck while wielding her influence to the benefit of her other employers.

<><> Hillary Clinton jetted to Ireland with Abedin at her side for her last official trip before exiting the State Dept, during which Hillary attended an event hosted by a major Clinton Foundation donor that had been promoted by Teneo (for which Abedin then-served as a "consultant")

<><> Abedin's special employment status gave her heavy influence over Hillary Clinton's State Dept daily schedule and travel plans at the same time Abedin served as a senior adviser at Teneo, and performed other duties at the Clinton Foundation.

<><> Abedin using information about Hillary's travel schedule in discussions w/ her clients, could be a serious breach of US ntl security, since even the calendar amd travel plans of the Secy of State is considered classified information.

<><> Abedin was among several key aides to Hillary Clinton that hosted email accounts on a private server in the 2016 presidential candidate's Chappaqua, New York home, in violation of federal records laws.

<><> Abedin is currently vice-chair of Hillary's 2016 presidential campaign committee.

Hillary's aides used their tax-paid positions at the State Dept to cash-in---they romped all over the State Dept looking for money-making opportunities .....like it was their private playground.

Alana Goodman of the Washington Free Beacon details how Cheryl Mills, another one of Hillary Clinton’s longtime underlings, apparently collected a paycheck from New York University at the same time she was serving as Chief of Staff of the State Department.

According to the article: After joining the State Department in the beginning of 2009, Mills continued to serve as general counsel for New York University for several months. She also sat on the board of the “NYU in Abu Dhabi Corporation,” the fundraising arm for the university’s UAE satellite campus. The school is bankrolled by the Abu Dhabi government and has been criticized by NYU professors and human rights activists for alleged labor abuses.

The UAE is a major funder of the Clinton Foundation, on whose board Mills sat. The article quotes NLPC Chairman Ken Boehm:

“Federal of conflict interest statutes are very strict, and they want to ensure that federal employees, especially very senior special employees like Cheryl Mills, do not have any conflicts of interest in any matter that they have a hand in,” said Boehm. “Given her position, the dual position of counselor and chief of staff, presumably she would have access to almost any decision of importance that came out of the State Department.”

UPDATE--

<><> Mills rejoined the board of the Clinton Foundation in 2013, after Hillary exited State.

<><> Mills currently runs the BlackIvy Group, a consulting firm that focuses on dirt-poor Sub-Saharan Africa.

CONTACT CONGRESS HERE: http://www.contactingthecongress.org/

DEMAND CONGRESS SEND YOU THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION:

<><> Did Hillary's State Dept grant Cheryl Mill's BlackIvy Group tax monies?

<><> did any of the Sub-Sahara groups receive foreign aid grants from Hillary's State dept?

<><>Did any of the Sub-Sahara countries listed below donate to the Clinton Foundation

<><> Did Mill's BlackIvy Group donate to The Clinton Foundation?

<><> Did the Clinton Foundation partner w/ BlackIvy Group in sub-Sahara projects?

SUB SAHARAN AFRICA---- African Union Benin Botswana Burkina Faso Cameroon Congo (Brazzaville) Congo (DRC-Kinshasa) Ethiopia Ghana Guinea Ivory Coast Kenya Lesotho Madagascar Malawi Mauritius Mozambique Namibia Niger Nigeria Rwanda Senegal Sierra Leone South Africa Swaziland Tanzania Togo Uganda Zambia.

===================================================

<><> (A) TAXPAYERS DEMAND TO KNOW HOW MANY GOVT PAYCHECKS MILLS WAS POCKETING

<><> IS CHERYL MILLS STILL ON THE PAYROLL COLLECTING US GOVT PAYCHECKS (an old bureaucratic trick)?

Well, we know that Hillary had Ambassador Steven’s travel and protection information on her unsecure computer system, and Stevens was killed.

It was almost like the bad guys knew where he was going to be and when he was least protected.

Why, it’s almost like they were reading Hillary’s e-mails!

The sickest part of this is that dems are not dropping Hillary because of her treasonous acts, but rather because they don’t think they can gloss over them enough to win her the election. In their desire to get a ‘D’ win, liberal voters don’t really care about damage to their country. Atlas Shrugged predicted this socialist insanity.

"Obama" decided to pull the plug in May.

He has to tread carefully, because he does not know how much Team Clinton knows about his true identity or his rise to power.

Team Clinton is also in the dark, about how much evidence the government has about the complex bribery/money laundering/tax evasion scheme known as the "Clinton Foundation/Global Initiative".

The email "scandal" is relatively insignificant, since it doesn't touch Bill and Chelsea. If the Foundation scam is prosecuted, however, all three of them are looking at decades in prison.

Be patient. The die is cast.
