Nearly 15,000 new Clinton emails gleaned in FBI probe

shocked face

Via Seattle Times: The State Department said Monday it is reviewing nearly 15,000 previously undisclosed emails recovered as part of the FBI’s now-closed investigation into the handling of sensitive information that flowed through Hillary Clinton’s private home server.

Lawyers for the department told U.S. District Court Judge James E. Boasberg on Monday that they anticipate processing and releasing the first batch of these new emails in mid-October, raising the prospect new messages sent or received by Democratic nominee could become public just before November’s presidential election. The judge is overseeing production of the emails as part of a federal public-records lawsuit filed by the conservative legal advocacy group Judicial Watch.

Representing the State Department, Justice Department lawyer Lisa Olson told Boasberg that officials do not yet know what portion of the emails is work-related rather than personal. Clinton, the Democratic nominee for president, served as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. She has claimed that she deleted only personal emails prior to returning over 55,000 pages of her work-related messages to the State Department last year.

Hillary Clinton what difference does it make

The State Department has publicly released most of those work-related emails, although some have been withheld because they contain information considered sensitive to national security.

Republicans are pressing to keep the issue of Clinton’s email use alive after the FBI closed its investigation last month without recommending criminal charges. GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump routinely criticizes Clinton for her handling of emails containing classified information.

Olson told the judge that State earlier this month received seven disks containing “tens of thousands” of emails Clinton sent or received during her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat. The first disk, labeled by the FBI as containing non-classified emails not previously disclosed by Clinton, contains about 14,900 documents, Olson said. The second disk is labeled as emails containing classified information.

Olson told Boasberg she could not immediately say how many emails are contained on the rest of the disks or how many might be copies of emails Clinton already has provided.

Given the large volume of messages, Olson said it was “extremely ambitious” for the agency to complete its review and begin releasing the first batches of emails to Judicial Watch by Oct. 14.

Judicial Watch lawyer Lauren Burke told Boasberg that the proposed schedule is too slow and pressed for faster release of the emails from the first disk. The judge ordered the department to focus its efforts on processing the emails from the first disk and to report back to him on its progress by Sept. 22.

As part of proceedings in a separate Judicial Watch lawsuit, a federal judge on Friday ordered Clinton to answer written questions from the group about why she chose to rely on a private server located in the basement of her New York home, rather than use a government email account.

Fit for CIC? Clinton discussed executed Iranian scientist on email

Keep in mind, if any military personnel had done what Hillary did with her private server and emails, they’d be in Leavenworth.

Tom Cotton drops a bomb...

Senator Tom Cotton drops a bomb…

From Washington Examiner: Hillary Clinton recklessly discussed, in emails hosted on her private server, an Iranian nuclear scientist who was executed by Iran for treason, Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said Sunday.

“I’m not going to comment on what he may or may not have done for the United States government, but in the emails that were on Hillary Clinton’s private server, there were conversations among her senior advisors about this gentleman,” he said on “Face the Nation.” Cotton was speaking about Shahram Amiri, who gave information to the U.S. about Iran’s nuclear program.

The senator said this lapse proves she is not capable of keeping the country safe. That goes to show just how reckless and careless her decision was to put that kind of highly classified information on a private server. And I think her judgment is not suited to keep this country safe,” he said.

The revelation could cause further political damage to Clinton, who was already on the defensive Sunday after commenting oddly last week that she had “short-circuited” in a statement related to her honesty about the email scandal.

Republican nominee Donald Trump seized on the statement to question her mental stability.

Iran confirmed on Sunday that Amiri had been hanged for treason. He was convicted of spying charges in a death sentence case that was upheld on appeal, according to the Associated Press.

“This person who had access to the country’s secret and classified information had been linked to our hostile and No. 1 enemy, America, the Great Satan” a spokesman for the Iranian judiciary said. “He provided the enemy with vital and secret information of the country.”

His body was returned to his mother with rope marks around the neck.

It would appear possible that discussion on an unclassified — and quite possibly hacked — email system about a person who was hanged as a spy will have a chilling effect on others who might want to engage in espionage for the United States.

Amiri disappeared while on a religious pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in 2009, but he then resurfaced a year later in the U.S., where he visited the Iranian interest section of the Pakistani embassy and demanded to be sent home to Iran. While Amiri told reporters that he was held against his will by both the Saudis and the Americans, U.S. officials said he was receiving millions of dollars for information he provided about Iran’s nuclear program.

The scientist shows up in Clinton’s emails back in 2010, just nine days before he returned to Iran. “We have a diplomatic, ‘psychological’ issue, not a legal one. Our friend has to be given a way out,” the email by Richard Morningstar, a former State Department special envoy for Eurasian energy, read, according to the Associated Press. “Our person won’t be able to do anything anyway. If he has to leave so be it.”

Cotton Sunday also accused the Obama administration of “working like a gun cartel” by sending $400 million to Iran in what many regard as ransom for hostages. Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate Tim Kaine described the payment as “appropriate.”

Hacked emails show Democratic National Committee to be corrupt arm of Hillary

Ask a Democrat about Richard Nixon, and you’ll get an earful about Nixon’s dirty campaign tricks. There’s a reason why his nickname is Tricky Dick.

But it’s a case of the pot calling the kettle black, as shown by some 2,000 Democratic National Committee (DNC) emails hacked by Guccifer 2.0 and recently released by WikiLeaks.

Those emails show that the DNC is thoroughly corrupt. Long before Hillary Clinton won the 2016 Democratic primary elections and became her party’s presumptive presidential nominee, the DNC had become her tool, planning and undertaking dirty tricks to protect her and to undermine her opponents Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.

If Democrats have even a shred of honesty, they would acknowledge that Hillary Clinton is worse than Richard Nixon — many times worse. At least Nixon did not heartlessly abandon four Americans to die in Benghazi, Libya.

Hillary anti-Christ hellfire

Chuck Ross reports for The Daily Caller, July 22, 2016, that WikiLeaks released nearly 20,000 emails it says are from the accounts of Democratic National Committee (DNC) officials, which could cloud the upcoming Democratic party convention that begins Monday in Philadelphia. The emails were obtained by a self-described Romanian hacker (or hackers) going by the name Guccifer 2.0 through the DNC’s computer systems, but many suspect the hackers to be a team of Russians.

In addition to DNC emails, other documents released by the hacker(s) include internal planning memos and databases of Democratic donors. The DNC, chaired by Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has admitted that their systems were infiltrated.

The emails, dated from Jan. 2015 to May 25, 2016, come from the accounts of DNC officials. According to WikiLeaks, which is operated by Julian Assange, the release is “part one” of a series it is calling “Hillary Leaks.”

So far, this is what the DNC emails reveal:

(1) Collusion between journalists and the DNC to protect Hillary

In an email from DNC national press secretary and deputy communications director Mark Paustenbach to DNC communications director (and former White House Director of Hispanic Media) Luis Miranda, Paustenbach said Politico‘s chief investigative reporter Ken Vogel “gave me his story,” which was unflattering to Hillary, to read “ahead of time,” before the story goes to Vogel’s editors. Paustenback then asked Miranda to “Let me know if you see anything that’s missing and I’ll push back.”

Mark Paustenbach, Luis Miranda, Ken Vogel

Here’s a screenshot I took of that email from WikiLeaks (click image to enlarge):

In his story, Vogel wrote that although the Hillary Victory Fund was billed as a joint fundraising effort between the Clinton campaign, DNC and state Democratic parties, only a small fraction of funds raised actually went to state parties.

Given a heads up by Vogel, Hillary’s campaign pushed back on the report with a spin by Clinton spokesman Josh Schwerin, who told CNN: “Funds raised through the Hillary Victory Fund are now being used to fund and staff organizing programs in Ohio, Virginia, Florida and states across the country that will register voters, recruit volunteers and organize Democrats to turn out and support candidates up and down the ballot.”

(2) Proposal to undermine Bernie Sanders by publicizing he’s a Jew

In an email on May 5, 2016, from DNC chief financial officer Brad Marshall to Miranda, Paustenbach and CEO of DNC Amy Dacey, Marshall proposes that “we get someone” in Kentucky and West Virginia to ask Bernie Sanders about his (religious) belief — whether he believes “in a God” — in order to impress on Southern Baptists that Bernie is a Jew and an atheist.

WikiLeaks DNC email2(3) DNC approved of fake CraigsList ad to smear Trump as a sexist pig

In an email to Paustenbach and Miranda on May 18, 2016, DNC deputy communications director Christina Freundlich sought their approval for placing a fictitious ad on CraigsList, soliciting “hot women” to work for Donald Trump, who are prepared to endure public humiliation if they gain weight, and to be greeted by Trump “with a kiss on the lips” or a grope “under the meeting table”. The fake ad was approved by DNC communications director Luis Miranda.

Hillary Clinton is not yet president. Imagine what she and the Democrats would do if she is. Dirty campaign tricks are piffling compared to the “tricks” to come.

Hacker of Hillary’s email found dead in prison cell?

People who know or have crossed the Clintons have a way of dropping dead.

The latest rumored victim is Guccifer, who hacked Hillary’s emails. Guccifer’s real name is Marcel Lazar Lehel, a Hungarian. 

Guccifer Lehel

But the rumor that Guccifer had died in or disappeared from his Virginia prison cell is not true because:

  1. The rumor of Guccifer’s disappearance originated with a single source: the notorious blogger and hoaxer Sorcha Faal (real name David Booth), who is known for making stuff up, claiming the Kremlin as his source. But Faal’s embedded links to his alleged Russian sources never actually link to any source. Faal makes sensationalist claims that, because they are sensationalist, are picked up by gullible people. Never believe anything written by Sorcha Faal.
  2. Faal’s fabrication was picked up a few days later and embellished into a tale of Guccifer having died in custody, by the fake news site, Christian Times Newspaper (not to be confused with the legitimate The Christian Times).
  3. The sheriff of Alexandria, Virginia, Dana Lawhorne has denied the rumor. He issued a statement today: “Marcel Lehel Lazar, a federal inmate also known as Guccifer, is at the William G. Truesdale Adult Detention Center in Alexandria, Va. He is alive and has never been missing from this facility.” Snopes contacted authorities at the Virginia jail and confirmed that Guccifer is alive, well, and in custody there.

According to a for-subscribers-only report by independent investigative reporter Wayne Madsen, “FBI swayed on HRC indictment by the ‘usual suspects’,” Lehel was arrested by Romanian authorities for publicizing Hillary’s private emails that Lehel had hacked during the time frame surrounding the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi.

Romania then very obligingly extradicted Lehel to the U.S., where he was prosecuted in the court of the U.S. Eastern District of Virginia, described by Madsen as “the U.S. military-intelligence community’s ‘rocket docket’ for quick prosecutions without the worry of classified information being disclosed during a trial.”

Many of the emails hacked by Guccifer involved Hillary’s communications with Sidney Blumenthal — Hillary’s adviser and former Bill Clinton White House aide, who is a major proponent of the “Arab Spring” rebellion in Libya that ousted Muammar Qaddafi and plunged Libya into a blood-soaked civil war.

In October 2014, from a prison cell in Romania, Guccifer told Pando reporter Matei Rosca that his hacking always seemed to result in the same finds: “Wherever I investigate I find Jews and Freemasons in the highest circles. I’ve hit upon secrets in the attempt to unmask the society of the enlightened.” Wayne Madsen observes:

Such talk will eventually relegate someone like Lehel [Guccifer] to the bowels of the U.S. prison complex and any other similar information he gleaned from his hacking career will be studiously avoided by any federal law enforcement official who wants to keep his or her job, including [Attorney General Loretta] Lynch [and FBI Director James] Comey….

Dead Drop Hillary

A dead drop or dead letter box is a method of espionage tradecraft used to pass items or information between two individuals (e.g., a case officer and agent, or two agents) using a secret location, thus not requiring them to meet directly and thereby maintaining operational security.

Hillary Inoculated By FBI Questioning

hillary-innoculated

inoculate
medical: to give (a person or animal) a weakened form of a disease in order to prevent infection by the disease

The Clintons are masters at the use of political inoculation

Bill used it to stave off attacks on his behavior with women, his dabbling with marijuana, and Hillary’s attempted Healthcare legislation. And most spectacular of all… To remain in office even after becoming the first American president ever successfully impeached! (no small feat)

Today we see another case of political inoculation

SURPRISE BREAKING NEWS!!!
Tough questioning of Mrs. Clinton by the dreaded FBI has ended in a decision by the FBI not to persue charges.

STRATEGY: To blunt the effectiveness of Donald Trump’s inevitable thundering attacks on her long history of corruption. Hillary will point to the fact that she has faced the most rigorous examination by the nation’s top law enforcement agency, and been exonerated.

But wait! There’s something Hillary wants you to forget

Hillary Clinton has the FBI by the short hairs:
White House FBI Files Controversy 

Research this for yourself. From 1993-94 Hillary Clinton used the FBI as her personal spy agency to gather all possible dirt on potential political opponents.

What does that mean today? It’s very simple. Now that the FBI is adequately corrupted, Clinton and FBI leadership have enough dirt on each other that if one falls, so do the others. They are now required to cover each others’ backs. This is also the reason Obama is “all in” with Hillary. He knows that if she falls, he also falls.

Make no mistake, these are savage, ruthless political animals. Any news reporter who dares to dig more deeply into the real reason for the Benghazi coverup had better be well armed and heavily guarded by people whose loyalty is not for sale.

One More Thing

Tell Hillary that Trump is coming, followed and empowered by the vast majority of American voters who will not pay attention to lying pollsters. We never expected Hillary to be tried by Washington insiders. Her day of reckoning is in November, when the voters speak. Hillary, that is your D-Day.
