Department of Justice Inspector Generals report confirms Obama had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account.
FBI analysts and Prosecutor 2 told us that former President Barack Obama was one of the 13 individuals with whom Clinton had direct contact using her clintonemail.com account, explains DOJ inspector Michael Horowitz in Review of Various Actions by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice in Advance of the 2016 Election, the massive report released last week. Despite surprise in some quarters, this was not a new revelation.
Back in early March of 2015, CBS Bill Plante asked the president when he learned about Clintons private email system. The same time everybody else learned it through news reports, he said. That was not true, and hardly the presidents first strategic lie.
The story first emerged in Hillary Clinton Used Personal Email Account at State Dept., Possibly Breaking Rules, a March 3, 2015 New York Times report by Michael Schmidt. The most casual reader could disregard the possibly part.
Mrs. Clinton did not have a government email address during her four-year tenure at the State Department, readers learned, and her aides took no actions to have her personal emails preserved on department servers at the time, as required by the Federal Records Act. Two months earlier, in response to an effort to comply with federal rules, Mrs. Clintons advisers reviewed tens of thousands of pages of her personal emails and decided which ones to turn over to the State Department.
Jason Baron, former director of litigation at the National Archives, told Schmidt, It is very difficult to conceive of a scenario short of nuclear winter where an agency would be justified in allowing its cabinet-level head officer to solely use a private email communications channel for the conduct of government business. Clinton mouthpiece Nick Merrill explained that Clinton had complied with the letter and spirit of the rules. White House press secretary Josh Earnest took up the theme in classic style.
The point that the president was making is not that he didnt know Secretary Clintons email address, he did, Earnest told reporters. But he was not aware of the details of how that email address and that server had been set up or how Secretary Clinton and her team were planning to comply with the Federal Records Act. So unlike Marvin Gaye, he didnt hear about it through the grapevine.
As Politico revealed, from 2007 to 2015 Clinton set up three private servers. Some former aide to her husband set up an Apple unit, a former IT specialist for Clintons 2008 presidential campaign set up another server in 2009, and in 2013 Platte River Networks set up another, housed in a data center in New Jersey. Clintons team scrubbed some 30,000 subpoenaed emails from that server and smashed up her mobile devices.
Clinton told the nation the emails she failed to hand over were all about yoga classes, Chelseas wedding and such. And as the former first Lady and Secretary of State explained, I never sent or received any classified material.
In April, 2016, the FBI showed Clinton aide Huma Abedin an email exchange between Clinton and the president. Abedin expressed her amazement at the president's use of a pseudonym and asked if she could have a copy of the email. The State Department has refused to make public that and other emails Clinton exchanged with Obama, citing the presidential communications privilege, a variation of executive privilege, in order to withhold the messages under the Freedom of Information Act.
FBI boss James Comey knew everything but in July of 2016 he told the nation no reasonable prosecutor would bring charges. As Trey Gowdy of the House Oversight Committee told Fox News on Sunday, Comeys team, including Page and Strzok, pronounced Hillary Clinton's innocence before her investigation ended. This was textbook bias, which is the prejudging of an outcome, Gowdy said, yet the IG report found that there was no bias. That too should come as no surprise.
IG Michael Horowitz is an Obama appointee, and his massive report is like Comeys exoneration of Hillary Clinton. It amasses a body of damning evidence, such as Strzok setting out to stop Trump, but in the end faults only mistakes, insubordination and such while keeping many identities secret. The report does reveal that POTUS 44, formerly known as Barry Soetoro, knew all about Hillary Clintons unsecured email system and used it to communicate with his designated successor.
It is not news that POTUS 44 and Hillary Clinton are prodigious liars but good to have it confirmed by the IG his own self. The report also confirms that Hillary did have classified information on her unsecured server, so current Attorney General Jeff Sessions might file the criminal charges that former AG Loretta Lynch wouldnt have brought even if the insubordinate James Comey had recommended that she proceed.
The new guys can either be part of the cleanup crew or they can be part of the cover-up crew, Tres Gowdy said Sunday. And I would encourage them to be part of the cleanup crew.
What rarely ever gets brought up in this discussion....is that Sid Blumenthal was given access to Hillary’s emails. Once the Obama Administration said Sid couldn’t be hired as a government worker, or a contractor.....he was hired via the Clinton Foundation and given personal access to Hillary.
We have known this for many years.
Obama had direct contact but he didn’t know about it till he saw it in the news.
Why would he do that?
We are still waiting for criminal charges.
So. Did Justice and FBI turn over docs yesterday?
Scheduling mutual yoga and kids birthday parties. Why so suspicious all the time you conspiracy nuts!
Cities will burn, mass chaos, basically the worst parts of the bible. /s
WHERE ARE THE CRIMINAL CHARGES SESSIONS???
So the US Sec of State, a cabinet level position in-line for presidency, charged with worldwide diplomatic decisions and contacts with world leaders, had only 13 people in 4 years able to contact HER by email. And, when they did use email, it was illegal.
“We are still waiting for criminal charges.”
Only when hillary, obama, billy boy, possibly chelasea. jarrett, holder, comey, and the whole upper echalon of the Justice Department and the FBI are in orange jump suits and shackled will I believe anything coming out of Washington, DC.
I would suggest that her entire four year period as Sec of State....was mostly to go around and just ‘act’ in the position.
I recall some moderator asking Iowa Democrats to name one single thing that she’d done in the four year period, and they could not think of a single achievement. The same thing occurred for the eight years as a Senator.
You overlook the fact the criminal charges to which you refer are secondary to the more devistating charges in the hidden investigation
Why mess around with what are trivialities when there are really serious and devistating charges in the works
You must not wound the queen. You must kill the queen
The congress and the Senate are working jointly with the FBI and DOJ to present in aq long drawn out process all the damning evidence in this case so that it will be ok to forgo a trial since the defendents are actually guilty and will be imprisoned or hung on more serious charges
I want to see the emails of 2012, especially from Aug thru Oct.!!! Key word Morsi.
Actually, I wonder if Obama will simply say that as POTUS, he authorized HRC to use this mode of communications, thus exonerating her and the others.
Barry was Slithery Rotten Criminal’s lawn jockey. His only claim to fame was riding her trojan horse, Hillarycare, to the finish line. Clean up that horsecrap in my stall, Barry.
