Clinton Accountability Goes Forward

JUDICIAL WATCH

We’ve repeated time and time again that your Judicial Watch would pursue accountability for Hillary Clinton and her associates no matter what happened on Election Day.

Keeping that promise, we released this week 508 pages of documents in response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking information about possible conflicts of interest between the actions taken by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and Bill Clinton’s activities.  Further demonstrating the Obama administration’s contempt for transparency, more than 440 pages of the documents were redacted either in full, or with only minor notations remaining.  The documents were released as a result of a federal court order in FOIA lawsuit filed against the Obama State Department back in 2013.

The documents included an undated, unsigned memo entitled “Private Sector Opportunities for WJC” [William Jefferson Clinton].  The memo provided capabilities analysis of three companies with major investment interests in Haiti: Tetra Pak, Seaboard, and Cemex.

The documents also include a lengthy March 2009 email from Clinton Foundation Director of Foreign Policy Amitabh Desai to former Assistant Secretary of State Andrew Shapiro and subsequently forwarded to top Clinton aide Jake Sullivan containing the names of nearly 200 then-current and former heads of state to be invited to the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative annual meeting.  Clinton hadn’t yet been Secretary of State three months before her cash machine was shaking down the world!

The list includes dignitaries from Saudi Arabia, which gave $14.5 million to the Clinton Foundation; Kuwait, which gave between $5 and $10 million; Oman, the United Arab Emirates, and Qatar – all of which donated between $1 and $5 million over the years.  In February 2015, the Washington Post reported, “A third of foundation donors who have given more than $1 million are foreign governments or other entities … and foreign donors make up more than half of those who have given more than $5 million.”

In July 2014, Judicial Watch released more than 200 conflict-of-interest reviews by State Department ethics advisers of proposed Bill Clinton speaking and consulting engagements during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.  The documents show that Mr. Clinton’s office proposed 215 speeches around the globe.  And 215 times, the State Department stated that it had “no objection.”  The Washington Examiner published a report by Judicial Watch Chief Investigative Reporter Micah Morrison and Examiner then-Senior Watchdog Reporter Luke Rosiak which notes that Mr. Clinton “earned $48 million while his wife presided over U.S. foreign policy, raising questions about whether the Clintons fulfilled ethics agreements related to the Clinton Foundation during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.”

We sued for these documents in 2013 but we first asked for them in 2011.  It is a scandal that the Obama administration (including Clinton’s top operatives at the State Department) stalled the release of these smoking gun documents for over five years.

These documents show that Hillary and Bill Clinton’s money machine sought to shake down almost every country in the world, from Saudi Arabia to desperately poor Haiti.  President-elect Trump can’t move fast enough to launch a serious criminal investigation of the unholy – but highly profitable – alliance between the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton State Department.

Pardon Hillary?

Family Security Matters

by DR. PETER VINCENT PRY

 

Geraldo Rivera on Saturday’s (November 12) airing of Fox and Friends made a lengthy and impassioned appeal for a general presidential pardon of Hillary Clinton for any and all wrongdoings, eloquently urging President-Elect Trump to be “magnanimous” and “heal the nation’s wounds” by forgiving and pursuing no investigations of the Clintons.  Then, literally in the next breath, liberal TV journalist Rivera called for an investigation of Trump and Wikileaks to establish if he stole the election by conspiring with Russia.

Hillary must be investigated.

If only to debunk the false narrative concocted by the Left, the liberal media, and Hillary herself that she is an innocent victim, stabbed in the back by evil Trump, who is supposed to be (absurdly) some kind of Russian Manchurian Candidate-Hillary must be investigated.

Failure to investigate Hillary will not bind the nation’s wounds and heal the deep divisions.  Obama and Hillary specialize in the politics of division and hatred.  The Left and the liberal media are already trying to do everything they can to delegitimize an incoming Trump Administration-including rioting in the streets.

If there are no investigations, the liberal mainstream media will confer victimhood status on Hillary, will lie that she is a martyr of Trump and his racist allies that stole the election-and half of America will believe them.  Let Hillary off the hook and this will be the only story on TV every day of a Trump Administration.

Clinton Sent Classified Document to Daughter That State Department Has Identified as “Foreign Relations Activities… Including Confidential Sources”

JUDICIAL WATCH

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding the State Department’s release of 74 additional emails recovered by the FBI in its investigation of former Secretary of State Clinton’s use of a non-state.gov email system. Included in the new documents was an email in which Clinton forwarded classified information to her daughter, Chelsea, at the unsecure email address dreynolds@clintonemail.com. Before releasing the heavily redacted email to Judicial Watch, the State Department marked it “B1.4(b)” and “B1.4(d),” indicating that it contained “Foreign Government Information’ and “Foreign relations or foreign activities of the US including confidential sources.” The State Department also misleadingly labeled the email with the term “near duplicate.”

No wonder Hillary Clinton deleted this email. Her sharing classified information with her daughter shows criminal disregard for national security.

The State Department has been producing documents in accordance with a September 23, 2016, court order issued by Judge Boasberg, who ordered the Department of State to begin processing at least 1,050 pages of Hillary Clinton emails recovered by the FBI and provide Judicial Watch all non-exempt documents before November 4.  State Department confirmed in September that the FBI had discovered nearly 15,000 new Clinton emails as a result of Judicial Watch’s litigation seeking all of Clinton’s work-related emails (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00687)).

Hillary Clinton has repeatedly stated that she believes that the 55,000 pages of documents she turned over to the State Department in December 2014 included all of her work-related emails.  In response to a court order in other Judicial Watch litigation, she declared under penalty of perjury that she had “directed that all my emails on clintonemail.com in my custody that were or are potentially federal records be provided to the Department of State, and on information and belief, this has been done.”  This new email find is also at odds with her official campaign statement suggesting all “work or potentially work-related emails” were provided to the State Department.

A hearing will be held Monday, November 7, 2016, regarding Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit seeking emails sent or received by Clinton in her official capacity during her tenure as Secretary of State. The timeframe for this request is February 2, 2009, to January 31, 2013.

Clinton directed her maid to print out classified materials

New York Post

As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material.

In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.

Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets, further opening the Democratic presidential nominee to criticism that she played fast and loose with national security.

FBI finds up to 30 deleted Benghazi emails Clinton did not turn over

 Powerline

I hadn’t intended to write two Hillary Clinton email posts tonight. However, news that FBI investigators recovered 30 Benghazi-related emails from Hillary Clinton’s wiped server is potentially too important not to comment on right away.

Government lawyers told U.S. District Court Judge Amit Mehta today that some of the 30 recovered emails relating to Benghazi — they didn’t say now many — were not included in the 55,000 pages previously provided by Clinton. The State Department’s lawyer also told the judge that the Department needs until the end of September to review the emails and redact potentially classified information before they are released.

Judge Mehta was skeptical. He questioned why it would take so long to release so few documents, urged that the process be expedited, and ordered the department to report to him in a week with more details about why the review process would take a full month.

As AP points out, Clinton previously has claimed that she withheld and deleted only personal emails not related to her duties as Secretary of State. Clearly, though, any and all Benghazi-related emails related to those duties

If it turns out that some of the newly recovered emails contain new content, as opposed to just duplicating previously turned over material, Hillary will be caught in yet another lie — this one relating to Benghazi, an area of particular vulnerability.

In addition, it’s possible that the recovered emails contain incriminating information about Clinton’s handling of Benghazi and/or the truthfulness of her public comments about the debacle. Such emails are just the ones Team Clinton would have the greatest incentive to destroy.

Here’s where the issue of redaction may be important. As Judge Mehta told the government, redacting 30 or fewer emails should be a simple task — one that does not require a month to accomplish. However, redacting them artfully enough to prevent damage to Hillary Clinton is a bit more complicated, if it comes to that.

Clinton Transmitted Classified Information to Her Lawyers

Family Security Matters

ANDREW C. MCCARTHY

 

What was their security-clearance level?  

What was the legal rationale under which Hillary Clinton quite intentionally shared classified information with her lawyers, including David Kendall, Cheryl Mills, and Heather Samuelson?

As I outlined in last weekend’s column, we know that Clinton’s e-mails were replete with classified information. According to the FBI, the classified e-mails included intelligence graded at the most closely guarded level: eight top-secret e-mails, and seven designated as “special access program” (SAP) information. (While FBI director James Comey’s presentation understandably left this vague, the likelihood is that seven of the eight top-secret e-mails are SAP.) Under President Bill Clinton’s 1995 executive order, top-secret intelligence is information the mishandling of which “could be expected to cause exceptionally grave damage to the national security.” The SAP designation is added when the unauthorized disclosure of intelligence could compromise critical intelligence-gathering methods or imperil the lives of intelligence sources.

That is why access to this information is so tightly restricted, and its unauthorized disclosure is routinely prosecuted.

With that as our backdrop, let’s get two things straight.

President Hillary Clinton would be the head of the real world SPECTRE

US Defense Watch

By Ray Starmann

Ian Fleming, the imaginative former British Naval Intelligence officer who created James Bond, also introduced the world to a fictitious worldwide criminal syndicate known as SPECTRE.

SPECTRE is an acronym which stands for the Special Executive for Counter-Intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion.

Enemies of SPECTRE and traitors within the villainous organization itself, found themselves dispatched to their deaths by electrified conference room chairs, pools of sharks, underground rivers filled with Piranhas, or by facing the vile Rosa Klebb and her dagger filled shoes laced with a deadly nerve agent.

 

Ian Fleming would be awed by how much the globalist establishment of 2016 resembles the fictitious SPECTRE of the 1960’s.
