Hillary Clinton did not have a password on her email account

Not only did Hillary Clinton violate the law when she was Obama’s secretary of state by using a private email server to conduct official business — including matters pertaining to state secrets and names of CIA spies — this woman was so cavalier about it, holding herself above the law, that she didn’t even bother to have a password on her email account.

Let that sink in: She did not have a password for her email account . . . .

That means not just sophisticated Russian or Chinese or ISIS hackers could have hacked her email, ANYONE could have read her email.

That’s the sworn testimony of U.S. Ambassador Lewis Lukens on May 16, 2016. Lukens was deposed as part of the discovery granted to the DC-based citizens’ watchdog group, Judicial Watch (JW), by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan in response to JW’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit involving Hillary’s unsecured, non-government email system — Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-01363).

Lewis LukensOn May 26, 2016, Judicial Watch released the deposition transcript of Ambassador Lewis Lukens, former deputy assistant secretary of state and executive director of the State Department’s executive secretariat. The transcript is available here.

Lukens is the first of seven depositions of former Clinton top aides and State Department officials that Judicial Watch has scheduled over the next four weeks. Also to be deposed are Cheryl Mills and Huma Abedin — Hillary’s deputy chief of staff, rumored lesbian lover, and wife of disgraced ex-Congressman Anthony Weiner — as well as top State Department official Patrick Kennedy, and former State IT employee Bryan Pagliano.

A foreign service officer for 27 years, Lukens had served in Southern China; the Ivory Coast; Sydney, Australia; Dublin, Ireland; Baghdad, Iraq; Vancouver, Canada; Dakar, Senegal; and three tours in Washington, D.C. He is currently serving in San Francisco.

While Clinton was Secretary of State, Lukens’ role was head of logistics and management support, supervising some 110 employees, and in that capacity had accompanied Hillary on all of her foreign travels.

Some highlights from Lukens’ 124-page testimony (his words are between quotation marks):

(1) The computers of most State Department employees are connected through the State Department’s OpenNet e-mail system.

(2) For that, an employee would need an email address from the State Department. For that matter, the State Department was “required” to assign an email address to Hillary as secretary of state, but she did not ask for one, nor did the State Department assign one to her.

(3) But Hillary was clueless about computers: From the start of her term as secretary of state in January 2009, State Department officials grappled with Hillary’s ignorance of the use of basic computers. In a January 24, 2009 email to the department’s Undersecretary Patrick Kennedy, Lukens said Hillary didn’t know how to use a computer for emails; she knew “only Blackberry”.

(4) That created a problem as to how Hillary could check her emails, which led to her request for a private Blackberry, which the State Department granted. As late as 2011, State Department officials were still trying to get Hillary to use a government-issued Blackberry, but Huma shot it down, saying in an August 30, 2011 email that a government-issued Blackberry “doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.”

(5) Lukens testified that to the best of his knowledge Hillary had never received a waiver to use the Blackberry in the State Department highly-secured headquarters: “I’m not aware of any waivers that were made.”

(6) Ever helpful, Lukens had proposed and helped set up a standalone computer on Hillary’s desk in the State Department, which was not part of the State Department’s system, so that she could “access the Internet to check her e-mails.” But Hillary’s agent insisted that a private computer be set up in a separate room “adjacent” to Hillary’s highly-secured office in the State Department “for her to check her BlackBerry”. Hillary rarely used the room set up for her. Instead, she would go into a hallway to use her private Blackberry. Lukens said he saw Hillary using her Blackberry in the hall “maybe a half dozen times.”

(7) All of that — using a private unsecured Blackberry and a private email account and server with the domain “clintonemail.com” to access her emails on the premises of the State Department — violated National Security Agency (NSA) regulations.

(8) Lukens said that he thought Hillary wanted to use the Blackberry “to stay in touch with family and friends.” He said he didn’t know if she was conducting official business on a private server or with a non-governmental email address.

(9) Lukens defended Hillary having a computer and Blackberry account separate from the State Department’s OpenNet e-mail system, arguing that it was for her “ease of access” because there would be “fewer passwords.”

(10) Worse still, Lukens testified that he eliminated Hillary’s need for any passwords:

Lukens: “She wouldn’t have had a password.”
Judicial Watch attorney Bekesha: “So the computer would have just been open and be able to use without going through any security features?”
Lukens: “Correct.”

(11) Not only was Lukens unconcerned about the security of Hillary’s email, he did not notice Huma Abedin was also using a private email account at the State Department, although he regularly exchanged email with Abedin.

grinding HillaryMeanwhile, Hillary’s supporters, i.e., Democrats, are just as lawless as she is. According to a Rasmussen national phone and online survey on May 29-30, 2016, although most Americans believe likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is a lawbreaker, half of all voters and 71% of Democrat voters say a felony indictment shouldn’t stop her campaign for the presidency

    • MomOfIV . . . That in itself is good enough reason why she should not be POTUS. All of us of similar age to hers has had to move into the world of technology . . . we bend to technology . . . technology should not be bent to accommodate us (if we are in a sensitive US government position) because we are so stupid, incompetent, or intelligence impaired that we cannot function in that realm. This is unconscionable, that she was and has been allowed to function in this manner . . . all at the expense of the American citizens. She needs to go to J-A-I-L . . . do not pass GO! Just go to jail, and now.

    • DCG . . . This is the very thing that is so unbelievable. Even the worthless governor of California, Jerry Brown, has come out in support of Clinton. How is it that so many people are this blind to the numerous things that she has been involved in that were illegal? Frankly, I find it disgusting that fellow citizens are really this lacking in intelligence.

      • True, in the past there was some very bad blood between Brown and the Clinton’s, now they are best buds.
        This whole thing is beyond comprehension. When you are in a secure position in the Federal Government and have access of a government computer, you are given a long password, large and small letters, characters, etc. to,think she had no password on her email is a serious protocol abuse.

    Just like when Bush 1 didn’t know how to use a grocery store scanner, this woman and people like her have no idea about technology because they have everybody else doing it for them. When do you think is the last time she drove a car? It’s probably been 30 years or more. They are so protected. They are above everyone and laws don’t apply to them, only the little people.
