Can you believe it’s already been more than three years since Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election? And can you believe that all of the illegal Clinton emails, which became an albatross around her failing presidential campaign, have still not been exposed?
On Friday, the watchdog group Judicial Watch revealed that the FBI has uncovered 37 new pages of Clinton emails that show she mishandled classified information and how she used text messages for official business too. How come the American people were never told about them? Who’s still covering for Hillary?
The Democrats: It’s okay when we do it!
From Judicial Watch on Friday:
“Judicial Watch today released 37 pages of new Clinton emails recently found by the FBI that show former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used her unsecure, non-government email to transmit classified information. The new emails also show Clinton used text messages for government business. The documents, produced to Judicial Watch after a review by the State Department, include 13 new Clinton emails. The State Department did not provide information about where the emails were found; why they were not previously produced; or if additional records are anticipated. Last month, a Justice Department attorney could not tell a federal court judge how and where the FBI discovered the new cache of Clinton emails. The State Department previously claimed it had produced all releasable Clinton emails, including emails recovered by the FBI that Hillary Clinton tried to destroy or withhold. The State Department initially claimed all responsive emails had been produced in 2018, but then found more emails which were produced, for the first time, early last year. Then in November 2019, the State Department first disclosed to the court that the FBI had found this latest batch of emails.”
On Friday, the newly-discovered 37 pages of emails were made public after litigation against the State Department, as part of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit the organization has been waging against the government for more transparency on this. That’s what Judicial Watch does, they file FOIA requests and then sue the government when they don’t comply, and when it concerns Hillary Clinton, they usually don’t comply. You gotta wonder how many buried bodies Hillary knows about to get that kind of endless support.
The new batch of emails discovered and published Friday includes Clinton using her personal email to communicate with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair; Clinton conducting official business with then-Assistant Secretary for the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs Jeffrey Feltman, who suggested she meet in 2011 with Lebanese Prime Minister Najib Mikati; and Clinton emailing with her aide Huma Abedin about “text messages” and coordinating getting her “confidential assistant” Monica Hanley to “the Hamptons” to help her get organized. Hanley has been exposed in the past for having mishandled or misplaced sensitive government information.
A number of these newly revealed emails, including the Blair one and several others, contain classified information as well.
Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton said what has been revealed in these emails demonstrate that a new criminal investigation into Clinton is necessary because they show that she very regularly transmitted classified information through her unsecured server system. That’s a felony violation of the Espionage Act. This woman could have been elected president of the United States, and we can’t just pooh-pooh her actions away.
Section f of the Espionage Act:
(f) Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, or (2) having knowledge that the same has been illegally removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of its trust, or lost, or stolen, abstracted, or destroyed, and fails to make prompt report of such loss, theft, abstraction, or destruction to his superior officer–
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.
Notice that the statute doesn’t even mention the word “classified.” It simply says, “any document,” and emails and texts fall under any document.
The term Gross Negligence we understand was originally used in the Comey exoneration letter for Hillary Clinton until it was changed to “extremely careless” – as if the words (which mean the same thing in this case) being changed exonerate Clinton from violating the statute. Who gave the order to change the terms in order to fool the American people? Was it Comey? Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch? Former President Barack Obama?
Once this discovery fully hits the news cycle, many Democrats will ask, hasn’t Hillary been put through enough? I think the question should be, hasn’t the nation been put through enough? Clinton has lied repeatedly about her actions, has lied repeatedly about Trump colluding with Russians to defeat her. She, to this day, has not accepted the results of the 2016 election and has openly declared she is part of the Resistance.
“Magically, after years, the FBI finds more Clinton emails that show Clinton used text messages for government work, not to mention the continuing flow of classified information transmitted over her unsecured email system,” Fitton said. “These documents further underscore the need for a fresh, unbiased, and thorough criminal investigation into Clinton’s blatant malfeasance – and the related DOJ, FBI, and State Department cover-up.”
Anyone who watched James Comey’s conclusive announcement that Hillary Clinton violated laws with the use of her private email server but refused to press charges knew there was something deeply wrong going on. They felt it in their bones that the fix was in, that the email server investigation had been rigged by the government to protect Hillary.
It’s about time the American public is told the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth about Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a private email server to conduct government business, how she endangered our national security by doing so, and all of the bad actors who were involved in helping her cover it up.
