FBI Releases Notes From Hillary Email Investigation

FBI Releases Notes From Hillary Email Investigation

Concussion & blood clot led her to few work hours and not able to remember briefings she received.

The FBI has released its notes from the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private email server after numerous media outlets put in Freedom of Information Act requests. Everyone became curious over the fact that the FBI did not recommend charges against Hillary.

The FBI interviewed Hillary for 3.5 hours on July 2 at its headquarters in DC. Three days later, Comey announced his shocking decision, despite listing all the ways Clinton and her aides were careless with classified materials on her private email server. For example, she had NO IDEA how to classify information.

From CNN:

“Today the FBI is releasing a summary of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s July 2, 2016 interview with the FBI concerning allegations that classified information was improperly stored or transmitted on a personal e-mail server she used during her tenure,” the agency said in a statement. “We also are releasing a factual summary of the FBI’s investigation into this matter.”

The bureau said it had redacted “classified information or other material exempt from disclosure under FOIA.”

People continue to dog Trump over his remarks about Hillary’s health, but look at this. She couldn’t even remember details from briefings at that time.

Hardly anyone knew her email address.

Cannot find her 13 BlackBerry devices

Aides would smash her old devices with hammers.

DELETION of emails.

The guy who got the emails couldn’t even give the FBI a straight answer on where he found them.

The Archive laptop came from…..THE CLINTON FOUNDATION.

They had a guy transfer the emails and he did to his Gmail account. Now the FBI or the guy cannot find the laptop or the thumb drive. Oh, there were at least 56 classified emails and 302 emails that Clinton did not hand over to the State Dept.

Her server remained completely unsecure her first months as secretary.

She claims she never saw or had any training on email or sensitive documents.

She had no idea that the C meant classified.

Confirmation of classified information.

There were times hackers tried to get into her email and system.

She actually thought discussions over a possible drone strike didn’t need to be classified.

Her system was not compliant with Federal Records Act.

You can find the documents here at the FBI website. Go through them and if you find anything interesting please leave them in the comments!

As an aside and yet of mindful note: “The Japanese delegation signed a formal treaty of surrender to the Allied Forces aboard the U.S.S. Missouri on this date, officially ending World War II almost exactly six years after Germany had invaded Poland on September 1, 1939. Among those present at the signing were Allied Supreme Commander General Douglas MacArthur, Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, and General Jonathan Wainwright, a recently released prisoner of war.”

“For starters, the FBI couldn’t find 13 of her previous used BlackBerry devices.”

I would have started with eBay and Craig’s List…

Hillary 2016: Historic First Brain-Damaged Woman President!

Hillary and her familiars never served in the military, law enforcement, or the CIA. So they were never acculturated in the proper handling of classified. When I was a jr officer in the army, we were downright neurotic about handling classified properly, because we knew the consequences if we didn’t.

    In Army Warrant Officer Flight School (which required a security clearance to qualify for) I was mildly surprised to learn that we had to cut up IBM Selectric typewriter ribbons (cutting edge tech at the time). Like there was anything really “sensitive” in our company paperwork.


      Had you failed to do so, was “intent” the standard which determined if you were thrown in the brig?

        Arminius in reply to Barry. | September 3, 2016 at 7:41 am

        It was strict liability. I was intel my entire career. My first tour of duty was with an F-14 TARPS squadron at Miramar. We shared a duty truck, a crappy little Ford Ranger, with the Screaming Eagles, the Gunfighters (the fleet replenishment or training squadron) and one or two others. We’re talking 1990 or so.

        What I do remember with perfect clarity is that on one of the weekly burn runs, one of the burn bags broke open. So, the sailor making the burn run stopped, cleaned up the mess, and put the messages that escaped the bag into the glove box of the truck. And forgot to destroy them with the rest.

        The next sailor making the next burn run notified NCIS.

        The standard applied to everyone at any squadron who handled classified information and shared that truck was you were guilty unless you could prove yourself innocent. Intent? I laugh.

        Arminius in reply to Barry. | September 3, 2016 at 7:50 am

        Actually the time line wasn’t that easy to nail down. Nobody really knew when somebody put those messages in the glove box. Which is why NCIS decided to settle the matter by pinning it on the squadron which came up with the least good answer.

        Hillary Clinton has come up with the least good answer. Trust me or don’t trust me. Try it for yourself and see how it works out.

      I get a lot of blank looks for saying hit the “carriage return” key instead of saying hit the “enter” key.

      Rick the Curmudgeon in reply to Ragspierre. | September 3, 2016 at 1:36 am

      My typing skills are such that I can assure you no cryptologist could ever extract anything useful from any of my typewriter ribbons.

      But hey; doing such things got you into the “think security” mode.

    2nd Ammendment Mother in reply to Humphrey's Executor. | September 2, 2016 at 4:37 pm

    Our soldier son has always been meticulous and cautious about even the most innocuous information including where he was last week since he was 18 years old. If he gets it, it certainly seems that a person who’s been involved in some element of government work for most of their life has some idea of what classified means.

All I see in these are the typical Clinton replies of “I do not recall ” it worked for her before and she figures what the hell keep doing it until someone has the balls to prosecute her. Then she’ll get her hit team to take care of anyone with balls.

wish people would report this ssl stuff correctly.
its impossible to install exchange 2010 w/o an ssl cert….it automatically creates a self-signed ssl cert which says it is authoritative. to use the system you must use https.
in reality thats a MUCH worse practice than no ssl.
its done this way to allow you to install a CORRECT ssl cert before going live.
what was done with this one (and I used to have screenshots to prove it) was whomever setup the cert used self signed saying they were a trusted cert authority.
that is false, and way too many leave servers like this using self signed.
really, NO ssl cert would have been safer as it would not PRETEND to be secure.
but the exchange web services needed to provide email flow will not start unless a cert is bound to the listening port.

Funny how it took them almost to Labor Day, and a Friday to boot, to release their interview notes.
Why someone might think it was timed for release as millions of people are traveling to other destinations and not paying attention to the news…..just purely a coincidence I’m sure…..

Two points.

First, even the lowliest government employee (such as yours truly) is lectured about records retention, the dangers of private email use, and the fact that the person responsible for the retention of materials is the person who issues the materials. For instance, if my top dog issued an internal policy statement via email to all employees, I am not responsible for making sure that email gets archived – the top dog is. Hillary claims that she thought her emails would be captured by other government employees. Not so. She was solely responsible for retaining and archiving anything policy-related that she produced. This is so universally known in government that her statement is simply unbelievable – aka “a lie.”

Second, Hillary said that she did not believe the material she was sending a receiving was classified. This is likewise unbelievable. She could not have believed it possible to conduct the office’s business without receiving and sending classified information via email. If she really believed that she was not receiving or sending classified information via email, did it ever occur to her why not? “Huma, where is all the classified email going? I’m not receiving any of it.” She either believes us to be stupid, or she is.

    Ragspierre in reply to DaveGinOly. | September 2, 2016 at 5:56 pm

    Nope. She’s a lying liar who lies. It’s no more complex than that.

    She doesn’t care if you or I are “stupid”. Nor does she care. She just cares about whether she can carry it off.

    Geologist in reply to DaveGinOly. | September 2, 2016 at 8:31 pm

    I hate to say anything supportive of Hillary Clinton, but it is possible that when she became Sec of State, they forgot to give her the lecture about her duties and responsibilities vis-a-vis classifications and record retention. After all, everyone might have assumed that she already knew. She had been in prior guvmit positions, and whoever was supposed to instruct her probably figured that she already know it.

    With guvmit employees lower down the chain, the boss doesn’t worry about instructing them on things they already should know, but if you were one of Secretary Clinton’s toadies, would you risk boring her and wasting her time with this kind of thing? She is notorious for her patience!

    Maybe she is telling the truth (OMG, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day!!) that no one ever told her about classifications and security!

      DieJustAsHappy in reply to Geologist. | September 2, 2016 at 8:39 pm

      A much more likely scenario would be that efforts were made to inform her, but in her arrogance she shouted down and pushed such “underlings” aside. Now that I would buy.

      I doubt they thought hateful hitlery was up to speed from previous .gov work. First Liar isn’t a titled job one can apply for and her other experience was Senator when she carpetbagged N.Y.
      This was pure greed or as hateful hitlery puts it – she wants to get the money out of politics…..she just doesn’t tell you she wants it in her bank account.

      “but it is possible…”

      No, I don’t think it is.

      She is a proven liar.

    Rick the Curmudgeon in reply to DaveGinOly. | September 3, 2016 at 1:40 am

    She’s counting on us being that stupid or the MSM running interference for her.

    DaveGinOly: She could not have believed it possible to conduct the office’s business without receiving and sending classified information via email.

    Classified information is available via the State Department’s secure communications facility, not email.

DieJustAsHappy | September 2, 2016 at 7:44 pm

However one frames it, Hillary comes across as a dingbat, although not a lovable one after the likes of Edith Bunker.

They billed State Dept. for the G D Server, then destroyed it !!!!!

hillary surrounded herself with lawyers.Normally there is lawyer client confidentiality but they were state dept.employees not serving as her lawyer and were a party to her crimes and thus should not be allowed these privileged communications in my non lawyer opinion. Cheryl mills should not have been allowed to be present during Clinton’s interrogation. There are rules for us and special rules for clintons.

Andy McCarthy has an excellent synopsis of the latest on the Hellary Clinton scandalsssssss.

What the FBI didn’t mention, but may have been assumed, was that she was one of four original classifiers in the federal govt. She was responsible for all of the classified information in, from, and to every one of our embassies and consulates in the world. She was in charge of the diplomatic bags contains (or used to contain) code books, and the information that the Marine guards are there to destroy if an embassy is overrun. As an original classifier, if she put (c) on a paragraph in a document, it was presumably classified. But, the State Dept has no record of her taking any of the yearly required security briefings and classes. And her closest minions thought themselves similarly privileged, taking only a couple of the required briefings and classes among the lot of them.

    Arminius in reply to Bruce Hayden. | September 4, 2016 at 6:51 am

    I have a few small issues with what you wrote. There are more original classifying authorities, for instance.

    Don’t let the fact that Barack Obama issued this fool you. I’ve seen basically the same list promulgated since Reagan. A baker’s dozen are OCA’s when it comes to Top Secret.

    But that machinist mate who is headed to prison for taking pictures in his nuke sub’s propulsion spaces? His name and/or job title isn’t on the list.

    So ultimately, after my first pass, I have no real problems with what you wrote. I have nits to pick. But since I hate Hitlery Clintoon with a passion I’ll let it slide.

    Arminius in reply to Bruce Hayden. | September 4, 2016 at 7:18 am

    When you are granted a security clearance by the US government you have a special duty of care. You have advanced past the reasonable person standard. You have entered into the informed person standard. What would an informed person, read into the programs, having been briefed, have thought about Hitlery Clintoon’s private unsecure server?

    We would have thought she was nucking futs. Or, more likely, a criminal up to no good. We still do.

    FBI diretor Comey actually gave a good speech on when a transgression warrants prison and when it warrant administrative sanctions. And now, the FBI in conjunction with the DoJ is sending the wrong individual to prison.

Also, maybe not mentioned above, Clinton apparently continued to use her personal insecure Blackberrys to conduct official business when outside the US (OCONUS). In foreign countries where she was most vulnerable to being hacked. And the funniest one was that a memo went out under her name to her department not to use private email for work. Needless to say, she claims to not remember ever having seen it, despite it having been “signed” by her.
