‘Top Secret’ Intel Handled by At Least a Dozen of Hillary’s Top Aides

‘Top Secret’ Intel Handled by At Least a Dozen of Hillary’s Top Aides

An exclusive report by Fox News indicates Hillary Clinton was not the only individual passing top secret classified intelligence through her home-brewed email server. As many as twelve different email accounts saw top secret intel.

Fox News reports:

At least a dozen email accounts handled the “top secret” intelligence that was found on Hillary Clinton’s server and recently deemed too damaging for national security to release, a U.S. government official close to the review told Fox News.

The official said the accounts include not only Clinton’s but those of top aides – including Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Jake Sullivan and Philippe Reines – as well as State Department Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy and others.

A second source not authorized to speak on the record said the number of accounts involved could be as high as 30 and reflects how the intelligence was broadly shared, replied to, and copied to individuals using the unsecured server.

The State Department recently confirmed that the messages in question include the most sensitive kind of intelligence. On Jan. 29, Fox News first reported that some emails on Clinton’s server were too damaging to release in any form. The State Department subsequently announced that 22 “top secret” emails were being withheld in full; these were the messages being handled by more than a dozen accounts.

In September, I wrote:

Was there a concerted conspiracy to violate the law, particularly given the fact that Clinton opted for a private email on her person server? Who else knew classified information was being transmitted outside of government purview?

If any of these suspicions are confirmed throughout the course of the FBI’s investigation, will aides then be offered legal concessions if they cooperate?

What were once Clinton’s closest lackeys may end up being her downfall.

But I imagined one, maybe two were in on the let’s share classified intel via personal email account jig, not TWELVE.

Fox also reported that contrary to what State Department Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy told the House Select Committee on Benghazi, he was aware Hillary’s personal email use included work related correspondence.

Kennedy recently told the House Benghazi Select Committee that he knew about Clinton’s personal email account from the beginning, but did not understand the “scope,” thinking it was for reaching husband Bill Clinton and their daughter Chelsea — and not for the exclusive handling of State Department business. Kennedy’s testimony appears to conflict with emails released through the Freedom of Information Act that show he routinely sent and received government business from the Clinton account.

Fox News has asked the State Department to comment on the email accounts that shared the highly classified information, and how it was that Kennedy did not understand the “scope” of Clinton’s personal email being used for government business.

A spokesman for the intelligence community inspector general, which has been reviewing the classification of the Clinton server emails, had no comment.

Earlier this month, Judicial Watch obtained emails through the Freedom of Information Act that showed the State Department working with Clinton on plans for a hidden IT network that would bypass regular DOS protocols.

Judicial Watch announced today that it recently received records from the Department of State disclosing plans by senior State Department officials to set up a “stand-alone PC” so that Clinton could check her emails in an office “across the hall” through a separate, non-State Department computer network system. Referencing the special Clinton computer system, Under Secretary for Management Patrick F. Kennedy, writes Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, “The stand-alone separate network PC is a great idea.” The emails are from January 23-24, 2009, a few days after Clinton was sworn in as Secretary of State.

The new emails were obtained by Judicial Watch in response a court order in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit for State Department records about Hillary Clinton’s separate email system (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00689)).

In the email chain, Lewis Lukens, former deputy assistant secretary of state and executive director of the secretariat, responds to a request from Mills by informing her, top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and Kennedy that the new personal computer “in the secretary’s office” would be “connected to the internet (but not through our system).” Abedin responds, “We are hoping for that if possible.”

The email exchange discussing plans to provide Clinton a separate computer to skirt the internal State Department computer network begins with a message from Mills to Lukens in which she requests Clinton being able to access her emails through “a non-DOS computer.” The email discusses how the stand-alone computer can be set up and why it is “a great idea’ and “the best solution:”

If she was Republican she would already be indicted and the trial well underway.

If it were you are me, we would already be under the jail or in the ground.

This is where the rule of law is in serious jeopardy.

Not just Hillary — all the aides and staffers who allowed this to happen, who participated in getting around the security rules, and who have been stonewalling.

If an E-5 or O-3 did this in the military –> court-martial. Look what happened to Petraeus. If a DoD staffer did this –> fired and indicted.

But if Hillary’s staffers get away with it, then everyone knows that in the future you just need the right sponsor and you can do what you want.

That right there kills rule of law.

Well, if you’re a foreign country this is the most open admin ever. So there’s that campaign promise kept.
No matter, hilldog is still leading in delegate count despite the virtual tie in Iowa and yuge loss in NH.

The email discusses how the stand-alone computer can be set up and why it is “a great idea’ and “the best solution:”

Yeah, a great idea for Russia, ISIS, North Korea, our enemies, moles…but horrible for those who died and will die because of this personal server.

“the most sensitive kind of intelligence”

That’s the kind of stuff that gets people killed. Unfortunately, our experience in Benghazi, and more than 200 dead Mexicans tell me that Hillary is part and parcel of this insensitive administration.

The phrase “shocks the conscience” was invented for incidents like this. The phrase has fallen into disuse, but it could be revived for special circumstances.

Hillary’s office =


Let the indictments begin!

Just about the time you begin to think it could not get any worse it does and does so by a huge margin. At what point will it become intuitively obvious to everyone that an indictment is not only necessary, but to not indict would be a landmark case of special privilege as well as a complete fail by a highly politicized DOJ?
As I have said before, not matter what route the DOJ takes, the end result for Hillary’s campaign is the same. Being that Hillary’s campaign failure is assured, it only remains to be seen whether or not this administration loses the last vestiges of competence and legitimacy.

It’s not just Hillary Clinton, it’s the mindset of her supporters and the media that this “It’s no big deal”. There are levels of secrecy above Top Secret and perhaps those are among the 22 emails that were too sensitive to release. Or maybe they were chit chat between Clinton and Obama. Trust, integrity and loyalty are not in this woman’s vocabulary.

When you want to convince those who still support Hillary that she betrayed our country the following should work.

Hillary had Ambassador Stevens’ schedule and reports on the consulate security problems on her email server. Our enemies, including Al Qaeda, could have easily and no doubt did break into her computer and steal this information. Hillary provided Al Qaeda with all the information they needed to murder Ambassador Stevens and 3 other Americans in Benghazi. This is why her email server matters and why she should be in prison.

I’ve commented ad nauseum about how I can’t see Hillary not being indicted. The evidence against her is overwhelming. It’s beyond the point where I can even play the game of pretending she’s innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. She’s guilty as sin.

But I have been noticing some very worrisome signs as this thing is playing out. The Department of State is clearly a criminal conspiracy. This Patrick Kennedy character is obviously a bad actor. That’s been obvious since we learned about his role whitewashing the whole Bengazi deal with that farce of an ARB. He deserves to be shot along with Hillary, but just as obviously he still wields a lot of power. This wouldn’t be possible without the Obama administration’s complicity.

So it looks like the DoS is slinging a lot of mud at other people. How does the DoS not have the ability to meet a federal judge’s deadlines to produce Hillary Clinton’s email because they require such careful review. But they do have the time to go through Colin Powell’s and Condoleeza Rice’s emails and decide a few of those unclas emails should have been classified.

If I was that federal judge who State gave BS reasons for not having the time or manpower to produce all the Clinton emails such as the State Department lacks the corporate ability to anticipate snow in Washington in January, but they do have the ability to divert resources away from what the court ordered them to do, I’d be livid. They just “forgot” that other departments and agencies who generated the classified material also had to review about 7,000 emails? If I were that judge I’d throw someone in jail, probably Patrick Kennedy, for contempt.

The State Department gave that judge the finger and they’re not shy about telling the world about it.

But they’re also giving the country the finger. And they want the country to know it. They’re rubbing our faces in it. That has to mean they know the President approves of their actions.

I am deeply skeptical that Powell or Rice or their aides had classified information in their unclassified emails. Primarily because, if the reports are correct, the DoS has now decided that those few emails are Confidential. This is a Fast & Furious-type maneuver. If the President claims we need to inflict gun control on the US because too many American guns find their way to Mexican drug cartels, then by god the relevant executive agencies will make those words come true. And if the Democratic nominee says her emails are no big deal because the USG has a problem with overclassification, then the relevant Department will make those words come true as well.

You can make an argument that some things that are classified Confidential really shouldn’t be classified at all. But you can’t say the same thing about TS/SCI. You might, might, be able to argue it shouldn’t be TS or it shouldn’t be compartmented. But to suggest it shouldn’t be classified at all is laughable.

That’s the difference between what we know beyond a shadow of a doubt Hillary Clinton did and what the DoS is blowing smoke about what they now want to claim Powell and Rice did.

Sometimes I have my doubts about the integrity of the FBI investigation. Perhaps like the DoS and the way it ignores the court to investigate other people, the FBI is ignoring to Clinton’s traitorous crimes in order to get dirt on other people. Perhaps to get leverage to shut up potential whistleblowers when the DoJ just refuses to act against Hillary.

On the other hand maybe Comey is the straight shooter everyone says he is. And maybe the FBI can’t be corrupted (ever notice how when this administration wants to close down a story they’ll start an internal investigation so Obama can pretend he can’t comment, except for this one investigation). So maybe Comey will resign in protest if Loretta Lynch refuses to act on what be a mountain of evidence of Clinton’s criminality and will refuse to indict. Maybe there’ll be a mass exodus of FBI officials, who will then try to tell the world about what they learned. I don’t believe the media will care, so they won’t cover it, and Obama and his minions will just laugh it off. They don’t care about what some people seem to think they care about, such as being embarrassed. They’re shameless; they can’t be embarrassed.
