Clinton aide’s emails face disclosure suit (Huma Abedin)

Free Republic

The emails of Huma Abedin, the top personal aide to former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, are now facing a disclosure lawsuit after the State Department failed to turn them over in response to an open-records request.

Judicial Watch, a conservative public interest law firm that uses open-records laws to pry information loose, had filed a request to get a look at Ms. Abedin’s emails during her four years at the State Department. News outlets have reported that Ms. Abedin also used the private email server Mrs. Clinton set up to handle government business, but the status of her messages is unclear.

It’s one of a number of open-records requests Judicial Watch filed after the email scandal broke, and Tom Fitton, president of the organization, said they’ve been stonewalled on all of them, so now they’re turning to the courts.

“We’re churning through these,” he said. “The scandal at the State Department is more than about Hillary Clinton. There are others involved.”

The State Department didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on the lawsuit Tuesday afternoon.

Mrs. Clinton has said she turned over about 30,000 emails from her server, and discarded another 32,000 messages she deemed unrelated to business. But it’s unclear whether the messages she turned over were hers alone, or whether they also included ones from Ms. Abedin’s account or other aides who were using the server for government business.

Rep. Trey Gowdy, who exposed the private emails as part of his investigation into the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, has urged Mrs. Clinton to turn the server over to a neutral third party while questions get sorted out, but Mrs. Clinton has refused,(snip)

Judge Napolitano – Hillary Clinton Is Eligible for Criminal Prosecution

Independent Sentinel

The Hillary Clinton email scandal is not simply a scandal. She broke the law and she did it more than once. Will she be prosecuted for it? Judge Napolitano was asked that question and in the end, she could be but it will depend on the prosecutor.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has given us her word that she only destroyed personal emails, but she has refused to turn over her husband’s server. She brazenly wiped the server clean when it was subpoenaed.

Information on Benghazi, the Russian reset and all the other dealings she has been involved in are lost. Communications with her aides, including Huma Abedin, are lost. Possible information about donations to her charity from foreign nations is gone. Schedule information is also gone.

She has clearly broken the law and the public was told to just trust her.

Trey Gowdy is not just trusting her.

House Select Committee on Benghazi Chairman Trey Gowdy delivered a letter to Hillary Clinton’s lawyers on Friday demanding Clinton hand over her email server to a third party to see what email remains on it even though she said she has wiped the server clean.

“I am formally requesting Secretary Clinton make her server available to a neutral, detached and independent third-party for immediate inspection and review,” Gowdy wrote, adding that the State Department’s Office of Inspector General could be a possible third party to examine the email.

“(S)hould Secretary Clinton continue to maintain that the server and its contents are hers alone, I will inform the Speaker of the House of Representatives so that he can use the full powers of the House to take the necessary steps to protect the best interests of the American people,” Gowdy wrote, according to The Blaze.

The full powers of the House would allow them to arrest her though that is unlikely.

Fox News anchor Bill Hemmer asked Judge Andrew Napolitano Monday morning if Hillary Clinton could be in trouble legally for her recent crimes related to the destruction of her government documents/emails. Judge Napolitano said that she’s in trouble legally if there is a prosecutor who will prosecute her.

The Judge said she broke the law several times and the same laws applied to others should be applied to her.

Hillary Clinton diverted government documents from the government to her husband’s server; she admitted to putting classified information in a non-classified venue which is the same crime as General Petraeus who had them in a drawer; and she admitted to destroying subpoenaed evidence after she was notified it was under subpoena – that’s obstruction of justice.

Hillary Clinton made these judgements instead of the State Department, the Judge said.

Judge Napolitano said this case should be presented to a Grand Jury to let them decide.

Evan Bayh, former Democratic senator from Indiana, said the voter’s won’t care. Judge Napolitano said they will care because the Clintons have acted as if they were above the law for years.

[The server will probably go on fire next and when she testifies, she won’t remember a thing.]

Watch the Judge:

Remember when it was a big deal when Richard Nixon or his secretary allegedly erased 18 1/2 minutes of Watergate Tapes? The entire Watergate scandal was blown well out of proportion but how is it Hillary can erase years of government documents?

It’s so important to the left that they are still trying to retrieve the data from the tapes. Rosemary Woods said she accidentally erased five minutes of the tape.

Of treaties and treason

Flopping Aces

democrats have been fast and loose with accusations of treason of late. On the one hand, they threw the accusation at Tom Cotton for reminding everyone that the Senate gets offer advice and consent to any binding treaties the President engages in. Soon after they agreed to support in principle what Cotton stipulated.

Hey, says James Lewis over at American Thinker, as long as treason is in the air…

What’s more, by bringing that ticklish word “treason” into the public debate, the left is opening up a can of worms. We can now ask some crucial questions that have been taboo until now.
•Does Hillary Clinton’s personal aide Huma Abedin, a lifelong Muslim Brotherhood acolyte, represent a clear and present danger in time of war?
•Did Hillary Clinton knowingly allow Abedin access to top secret State Department documents via Hillary’s private email accounts?”

And, to echo Prince Turki al-Faisal this week,
•Is Obama now opening the door to nuclear proliferation to rogues and terrorists, by letting Iran have nuclear weapons, thereby betraying this country, our allies and the entire world?

Those questions must now be asked. They should be asked as a matter of national survival.

Now Huma Abedin is Being Scrutinized for Possible Corruption

Free Republic

via Red Statements

Sen Chuck Grassley has written two letter to the State Dept. concerning a special arrangement for Huma Abedin, Hillary’s closest adviser. At the same time Abedin worked for the State Dept, she also worked for a company called Teneo. For those of you who don’t know it, Teneo bills itself as an expert in helping your company get government contracts. Can you see the obvious conflict of interest here? The Senate is trying to find out if Teneo’s clients received government grants and if they did, was Abedin and or Hillary involved? Abedin also had a private email account that ran off Hillary’s server.

Here are the highlights of that letter:

Key Document Found In Hillary Email Scandal…

Huma and Hillary

Weasel Zippers

Hat tip to Pundit Pete for the laugh.

Via Pundit Pete:

PPPS (Chapaqua, NY)—Thanks to the efforts of our Chief Investigative Reporter, Poirot Pete, the Pundit Pete Press Service has uncovered a key document in the recent controversy surrounding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email account.

Poirot Pete, posing as an undocumented worker at a local paper recycling drop off in Chapaqua, New York, uncovered this memo, purportedly from Huma Abedin to Hillary Clinton, and referencing the sorting of Hillary’s emails using key words and phrases. The memo appears to contain personal notes from Secretary Clinton revising the list of key words and directing the email search and deletion of non-relevant emails.

BOMBSHELL: Muslim Brotherhood Operative Used Hillary’s Email Server

Conservative Tribune

Hillary Clinton’s email scandal is burning out of control like an unchecked forest fire and it doesn’t appear that relief is on the way anytime soon.

According to Stephen Hayes, a senior writer at the Weekly Standard, two of Clinton’s top aides had access to and used her personal email account while they were all employed at the State Department.

He specifically mentioned Clinton’s trusted aide for twenty years, Huma Abedin, a woman with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

As most of our readers know, one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s core objectives is to, “destroy Western civilization from within.”

Having access to the Secretary of State’s personal email correspondence with leading government officials around the world is certainly a good way to begin that process.

Hayes’ main question concerning Abedin’s access to Clinton’s account was if they were discussing federal business between personal accounts, containing classified information, including critical information about Benghazi.
