To watch that train wreck of Democrat debate from last week, you’d think the Clinton e-mail scandal was non-existent, which is the furthest thing from the truth since Obama telling you you can keep your health plan.
Clinton e-mail scandal gets more interesting with every passing day. Now, we have another weekend document dump, order by a federal judge, who is, by the way, an Obama appointee.
State Department officials are set to release 550 of Hillary Clinton’s private emails Saturday amid increasing scrutiny of the former secretary of state’s personal server use.
While the agency should have released the final unpublished batch of Clinton’s emails at the end of January, officials missed the court-ordered deadline because they accidentally overlooked more than 7,000 pages of emails that other agencies needed to review.
The State Department then attempted to delay the publication of those emails until the end of February. That would have pushed the last email release until after the primaries and caucuses in South Carolina and Nevada and allowed the agency to publish the records just hours before the rash of Super Tuesday contests.
But a federal judge ruled Thursday the State Department must post the records online in four separate installments spread throughout the month of February to maximize the chances that voters will have an opportunity to see the emails before they cast their primary votes.
Clinton faced renewed criticism of her email use this week after the FBI acknowledged its probe of her server network had a “law enforcement” component. She has repeatedly argued the investigation is nothing more than a “security review.”
Frequent Teri O’Brien Show guest Andrew McCarthy’s excellent piece, The Democrats’ Likely Nominee Appears to Be a Felon — This Is Not Business as Usual, is a must read. Here’s a little flavor of it.
To take the simplest of many apparent national-security violations, it is a felony for a person “being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any . . . information relating to the national defense” to permit that information “through gross negligence . . . to be removed from its proper place of custody” or to be “delivered to anyone in violation of his trust” (Section 793(f) of Title 18, U.S. Code). RELATED: Obama’s Growing Conflict of Interest in the Clinton E-mail Scandal Mrs. Clinton was entrusted with national-defense information and knew that working with such classified intelligence was a substantial part of her duties as secretary of state. Despite this knowledge, she willfully, and against government rules, set up a private, non-secure e-mail communication system for all of her government-related correspondence — making it inevitable that classified matters would be discussed on the system. This was gross negligence at best. And the easily foreseeable result is that classified intelligence was removed from its secure government repository and transmitted to persons not entitled to have it — very likely including foreign intelligence services that almost certainly penetrated Mrs. Clinton’s non-secure system. The penalty for violating this penal statute is up to ten years’ imprisonment for each individual violation. Mind you, there are already 1,600 reported instances of classified information being transmitted via the Clinton server system, and the latest indications are that at least twelve, and as many as 30, private e-mail accounts are known to have trafficked in our nation’s defense secrets. Many of these account holders were certainly not cleared for access to the information — and none of them was permitted to access it in a non-secure setting.
Yes, I’ll say what you’re thinking. How can anyone consider voting for this woman for ANY position of responsibility?
