Newly Revealed Hillary Emails Show More Mishandling of Classified Info

Newly Revealed Hillary Emails Show More Mishandling of Classified Info

It’s almost like we’ve seen this same story before…

Hillary’s email server woes might not grace the front pages these days, but Judicial Watch has not relented in their pursuit of this particular case.

Thursday, Judicial Watch released a new batch of emails, “revealing numerous additional examples of classified information being transmitted through the unsecure, non-state.gov account of Huma Abedin, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, as well as many instances of Hillary Clinton donors receiving special favors from the State Department.”

627 pages were not included in the 55,000 pages Hillary released to the State Department. The reader will remember Hillary and her attorneys decided what emails to submit to the State Department for record-keeping purposes.

The breakdown from Judicial Watch:

On March 8, 2009, Clinton sent classified information using her unsecure [email protected] account. She forwarded to former Senator George Mitchell an email from Tony Blair relating to Palestine. The email had been sent to her at [email protected] Clinton responded to Blair, saying she had forwarded the email to Mitchell. A former Senate majority leader, Mitchell was serving as Special Envoy for Middle East Peace.
On April 16, 2009, Deputy Assistant Secretary Jeffrey Feltman sent to Abedin’s unsecure email account classified information about an unknown subject.

On June 18, 2009, Abedin sent classified information summarizing a June 18, 2009, “Middle East Breakfast” meeting between various senators, representatives and State Department officials, at which Deputy Secretary Jack Lew and George Mitchell briefed the congressmen with “an update on our discussions with the [Middle East] parties.”
On June 23, 2009, U.S. diplomat Martin Indyk, who had his security clearance suspended in 2000 for “possible sloppiness” in the handling of classified information, sent a memo containing classified information to Abedin’s unsecure email account. The memo, written for Clinton, pertained to Indyk’s discussions with top Israeli officials:

Could I ask you to review the memo below that I wrote yesterday on my return from Israel? If you think it worthwhile, I’d be very grateful if you showed it to HRC (I have already shared it with Mitchell and Feltman). A confrontation with Bibi appears imminent. I’ve never been one to shy away from that, as she may know. But it has to be done carefully, and that doesn’t appear to be happening. And I’m concerned that she will be tarred with the same brush if this leads to a bad end. So I think she needs to make sure that the friction is productive. I’ve made some suggestions at the end of the memo

On August 1, 2009, Abedin forwarded classified information from State Department official Richard Verma to her unsecure email account. The email from Senator Russ Feingold was sent to Hillary Clinton regarding her upcoming Africa trip.

On August 4, 2009, Assistant Secretary Jeffrey Feltman sent classified information about discussions with Kuwaiti officials to Abedin’s unsecure email account. Feltman noted that the Kuwaitis felt a lunch they had with Obama was “chilly.” The discussions concerned Guantanamo as well as Kuwait’s treatment of detainees.

On Sept 20, 2009, Abedin forwarded classified information to her unsecure email account. The email was from State Department official Esther Brimmer and concerned foreign leaders’ discussions regarding a UNESCO leadership appointment.

On November 1, 2009, U.S. Ambassador to the UAE Rick Olson sent classified information to Abedin’s unsecure email account. The email shows that Olsen was traveling with Hillary in the Middle East, and Abedin asked him to “work on a list of everything covered in the mbz [presumably Mohammed bin Zayed bin Sultan Al-Nahyan, the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi] meeting for Hillary.” Olson asks: “do you want it on this system (I can sanitize), or on the other system.” She replies: “This system easier. We are staying without class[ified] computers. Thx.”

On December 1, 2009, Abedin sent classified information about foreign military contributions to the Afghanistan war effort to her unsecure email account. The email originated with State official Sean Misko who wrote to Deputy Chief of Staff Jake Sullivan that he first “accidentally” sent it on the “high side” (secure) but was resending.

On December 25, 2009, Abedin sent to her unsecure email account classified information prepared by Deputy U.S. Ambassador to Afghanistan Francis Ricciardone concerning the Afghan elections.

On December 26, 2009, U.S. Ambassador to Mexico Carlos Pascual sent a memo to Clinton, which was found on Abedin’s unsecure email account. It contained extensive classified information involving U.S. and Mexican counter-drug operations in Mexico.

On March 22, 2010, Abedin forwarded to her unsecure email account classified information about a telephone conversation between President Obama and Mexican President Felipe Calderon.

On April 13, 2010, Abedin forwarded to her unsecure email account classified information from Ambassador Jeffrey Feltman regarding diplomatic discussions with the foreign ministers of Algeria and Morocco.

On May 24, 2010, Abedin forwarded to her unsecure email account classified information about the minutes of a State Department senior staff meeting regarding State Department officials’ meetings in Uganda.
Among Abedin’s unsecure email records is a document that is simply titled “NOTE” with the date September 12, 2010. The contents are entirely redacted as classified.

On January 28, 2011, Abedin sent Clinton an unsecure email containing classified information relating to a briefing White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs gave.

On March 21, 2012, Clinton received a memo from State Department officials Joseph Yun and Derek Mitchell marked “Sensitive But Unclassified” and sent to Abedin’s unsecure email account. It contained classified information about elections in Burma.

Jake Sullivan emailed to Hillary’s unsecure email account classified information in which Sullivan discussed the content of conversations with UK Prime Minister Gordon regarding “the situation” in Northern Ireland. The date of this email is not included on the document.

On April 8, 2012, Abedin sent classified information to her unsecure email regarding a call sheet and an “Action Memo” for Clinton relating to a call with Malawi President Joyce Banda. On April 9, 2012, Monica Hanley again forwarded the classified information to Clinton’s unsecure email account.

Hillary has long argued that classified information transmitted from her home brewed server was not classified at the time it was sent, though it may have later been classified, a claim that was debunked several times over.

Former FBI Director Comey, who was canned shortly after Trump’s inauguration, found Hillary and her compatriots innocent of mishandling classified information simply because they didn’t mean to be so reckless or that they had no intent to cause trouble by forwarding classified information from personal email accounts on home brewed servers.

As Judicial Watch’s investigation continues to prove, intended or not, Hillary’s mishandling of classified information was far more widespread than either Hillary or the FBI were willing to admit.

“Former FBI Director Comey, who was canned shortly after Trump’s inauguration, found Hillary and her compatriots innocent of mishandling classified information simply because they didn’t mean to be so reckless or that they had no intent to cause trouble by forwarding classified information from personal email accounts on home brewed servers.”

Kemberlee, that is simply a false statement…on several levels.

Doesn’t matter.

There will never be any accountability for any of this.

    No. There will never be the kind of accountability that you and I would love to see.

    OTOH, it can be contended it cost Hellary the presidency. There is some “justice” in that…

    And, as we can tell from her book and statements, it BURNS…!!!

Either this activity was or was not criminal, and the statutes I’ve seen and read, and the ongoing accumulating mountain of evidence says it had to have been.

At some point (we may already be past), the general public understands that Comey, Lynch, and everyone else involved in that sham investigation was completely full of crap, and DOJ probably still is full of crap on lots of stuff, and they lose all credibility.

It’s like video replay in the NFL – the officiating was getting so bad, and the broadcast replay so good (and HD technology too) that they had to do something, because the product had deteriorated so much and everyone – including the fans in the stadium! – could see how wrong the refs were. So they instituted replay.

Here, replay would be the Sessions DOJ [cough] taking another look at the investigation, Comey, etc. in direct violation of the “longstanding tradition” of present administrations not prosecuting past administrations.

Not doing so is terminally undermining DOJs and FBIs credibility, what little they have left.

(New) readers should always be reminded in articles like this that that the law doesn’t require “intent” of any kind. Indeed, the law proscribes “negligence” with regard to classified information, which is defined as “extreme carelessness”. “Carelessness” implies either a disregard for the sensitivity of the material (the violator recognizes the sensitivity of the material and just doesn’t give a flying eff) or gives no thought at all about its nature, and therefore has no “intent” whatsoever.

More email shenanigans:

Priestap’s declaration, however, reveals grand jury subpoenas were issued to wireless companies that operated Clinton’s BlackBerry and to “private third party e-mail accounts” of individuals who corresponded with Clinton.

The use of grand jury subpoenas indicates the investigation was criminal in nature and not a security review that the Clinton presidential campaign claimed, or a “matter” rather than an investigation, which was used by former FBI director James Comey in describing the case.

The declaration shows the FBI was primarily asking permission to obtain emails from Clinton and her team, and not through search warrants. The bureau claimed it had difficulty proving probable cause that classified material was contained on various email accounts and devices associated with the Clinton server.
“FBI sought to obtain all identified e-mail communications that were transmitted or stored upon former Secretary Clinton’s private email servers,” Priestap writes in the declaration, which was originally filed in April. “These investigative efforts consisted of obtaining e-mail repositories through consent of former Secretary Clinton, her representatives, former members of her staff, the State Department, and numerous other government agencies with which the Secretary communicated.”

Can someone please explain to me how James Comey is not under indictment right now?

Her, Her horse, and Comey

The best “Clinton is not the President”

I never intended to speed, but I still got a speeding ticket.

When it comes to Hillary, all the Clorox in the world can’t clean her up.

.. But she was practicing her alternative nostril breathing… How could she have known..

A friend of mine received a written reprimand for mishandling a classified document. This cost him future promotions, as it became part of his record. It never left the building, it just wasn’t locked up in the safe overnight. Clinton has absolutely violated many security regulations and procedures.

Don’t worry, she is a Dem, NOTHING will happen. Example: Sandy Berger.

    Milhouse in reply to Romey. | September 17, 2017 at 5:32 am

    Irrelevant. Comey explicitly said that were Clinton still working for the government she would have faced similar repercussions. But you can’t take administrative measures against someone who no longer works there.

But, but, Sandy Burgler lost his security clearance for the duration of Bush’s first term.

Until people start going to jail, nothing will ever change.

There is officially a two tier justice system in our country.
This should horrify, and be the catalyst for further revolt against the Establishment swamp deatroying our way of life and ultimatley our freedom
