An email released by WikiLeaks on Thursday provides new insight into Hillary Clintons carelessness with sensitive information in her emails and shows she was warned by close confidants to be more cautious even long after leaving the State Department.
WikiLeaks released a 2014 email conversation between Clinton and her current campaign Chairman John Podesta about the tactical situation in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East.
In what until today was the latest available email in the chain, Clinton stated that "there may be opportunities as the Iraqi piece improves." She also asked Podesta if he had "any idea whose fighters attacked Islamist positions in Tripoli, Libya," which was "worth analyzing for future purposes," according to Clinton.
Podesta quickly recognized the conversation shouldn't be happening on Gmail and Clinton's "clintonemail" server. "Yes and interesting but not for this channel," he warned.
If Clinton was discussing information after leaving the State Department that was sensitive enough to give Podesta concern, one can only imagine the kind of information she was relaying to others.
Another email dumped by WikiLeaks Thursday suggests Podesta was warned in 2008 about the dangers of communicating sensitive information on unsecured servers.
"I was struck by the memo partly because it was first I had heard of it but much more because it was a sensitive doc bumping around on public email addresses," Denis McDonough, President Obama's first chief of staff, wrote to fellow transition team member Daniel Tarullo on Nov. 3, 2008, "There is a very real threat to the security of our documents," he said.
Tarullo then added Podesta, also working for Obama's transition team, to the email chain and McDonough warned Podesta directly, "I know I'm like a broken record on this, but I think we should arrange a briefing on the cyber threat for all associated with your effort. We have a real security threat on our stuff here."
And yet Podesta himself continued the email exchange. You’d think he’d pick up his phone and call her to tell her.
Call STU to STU or just on the non-secure cell phone she loved so much?
The Vodka spoke louder
The beanie baby story is wild and fascinating . Georgetown criminal justice administrator guy selling 480 beanie babies before parents come. Reddit and 4 chan trying to figure it out...along with the pizza deal. The think both related to sone kind of trafficking/porn/kiddie...4chan claims beanie thing is about selling pics
Its a bizarre election
Even the nonsecure cell phone is a lot more secure than email. And there is no record of it.
I want to know an Iraqi “piece” of what? Surely HRC is literate enough to know the difference between piece and peace.
He should have taken his own advice. Dumbass.
And I’ll “hijack” your thread to say that Melania Trump just gave a classy speech in PA - compared to her, Laura Bush is trailer trash and Jackie was an empty fashion plate.
Eh, that’s a crazy theory though. “To: Announcements@law.georgetown.edu” and starts “Georgetown Law Faculty and Staff,” might honestly be about Beanie Babies stuffing up the spare bedroom (his parents are visiting.)
You would have to read through all the particulars and their analysis...including the photo that was used ...etc...but yes...it could just be a dude who collected beanie babies and didnt want his parents to know.
The pizza thing is much more involved. Over more head
Btw..spending 10 grand on beanie babies before a weekend without more particulars is very strange. He could have boxed them up and put them in storage. There must be some rare ones to be worth 10 grand. It really makes no sense to me. At the Time some people wrote about it and made fun of it
