FBI gets Hillary Clinton server, Top Secret emails found

After months of resisting calls to turn over her private email server, Hillary Clinton has agreed to hand over her secret server and a flash drive containing copies of her emails to the FBI and the Justice Department. Both agencies are currently conducting investigations which sources have indicated are criminal in nature.

Clinton has signed a sworn affidavit under the risk of perjury that she has turned over all work related emails to the State Department for review and eventual release. This comes despite the fact that emails that were previously not handed over by Clinton were found in the trove turned over by Sidney Blumenthal in his Benghazi Committee testimony back in June.

The multiple probes into Clinton’s use of a secret private server have expanded to include top aides including Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin, both of whom have been ordered to turn over all work related documents and explicitly not to destroy any electronic or hard copy documents in their possession. Abedin in particular is the focus of multiple court cases and congressional inquiries regarding possible improprieties during her employment at the State Department, at which time she was also a paid employee of the Clinton Foundation and Teneo.

 

Further damaging Clinton’s credibility and raising the specter of possible criminal charges, two Top Secret–the highest possible classification of sensitive information–emails have been discovered amongst those turned over by Clinton.

The Intelligence Community’s inspector general requested that the FBI scrutinize the security implications of Clinton’s use of the private email after determining that at least five emails containing classified information had been stored on her private server, including one email that State Department officials inadvertently released in response to a public records lawsuit. Two others are under review for final classification.

I. Charles McCullough III, the inspector general for the intelligence community, said State Department officials had warned that there were “potentially hundreds of classified emails” on Clinton’s private server.

Even more disturbing is that the classified materials were circulated to other people’s private email addresses rather than official and secure government provided accounts, further raising concerns about security precautions followed by Clinton and her team:

Republicans shared exclusively with CNN Tuesday a review of those emails that the State Department had released, which they said showed Clinton and her aides sent information that would later be classified to six people’s private email addresses. They include former Deputy Secretary of State Bill Burns; Cheryl Mills, who was Clinton’s chief of staff at the State Department; and Jake Sullivan, who served as Clinton’s top foreign policy adviser. Clinton also emailed information that would later be classified to close confidant Sidney Blumenthal, whose communications with Clinton about Libya have become a focus of the House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attacks.

In what must have come as a small consolation prize to the increasing legal difficulties Clinton is facing, the RICO case filed by long-time ClintonWorld nemesis Larry Klayman has been dismissed by the judge overseeing the case. Klayman was determined by the court not to have legal standing to prove that he was personally injured by the alleged activities.

    How much could she possibly have accomplished as Secretary of State if she never SENT OR RECEIVED classified or sensitive materials on her email account? Did she have to conduct all business in person? I don’t see how that would work. Makes no sense whatsoever. Even former NSA agent John Schindler is saying in The Daily Beast there is no way humanly possible that Clinton communicated information taken from KNOWN SATELITES (Keyhole Talent) and not known this is a guaranteed breech of security protocol.

    She is lying. She has lied. She will continue to lie.

      She’s been a low life shameless liar her entire life. It’s impossible fir someone like that to ever reform. It’s like a rapist. A rapist can’t be reformed either.

    Hillary is the most honest person God ever put on yhis earth. She created with the second most honest person in the history of humankind the Clinton Foundation. We are too ignorant and totally uninformed to be able to decide which charities our money should be sent. Thank goodness the Clintons know best. They do far more research to decide which charities are worthy. Far more research than any of us could ever do. That’s why the Foundation burns thtough over 89% of its donations for overhead. And as far as the people of Haiti getting screwed, what difference does it make now.
