Hillary Clinton's Private Server


According to the Daily Beast (August 12, 2015):
Underlying all this is the question of why Hillary Clinton decided to employ her own private email and server to handle so much of her official State Department business. This is, to say the least, highly irregular—not to mention a violation of numerous U.S. government rules and regulations—so there had to be a compelling reason to do this. What was it?
There are only so many reasons that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would have been using a private server in the first place.  A few possibilities:

(1) paranoia about "the vast right wing conspiracy"

(2) to hide something untoward — something personal or political

(3) distrust of the Obama administration

(4) to hide something about her health — perhaps the brain incident and her drinking.

Please peer into your crystal ball, and tell us what you see there with regard to Hillary Clinton's use of a private server:


Additional reading from Number of Classified Emails on Hillary’s Private Server Grows to 60:
The number of emails containing classified information that went through Hillary Clinton’s private server has grown to 60, according to the State Department. And that number is likely to grow as the investigation plows through the 30,000 emails Clinton didn’t delete.

  1. Clinton sat on the Nixon impeachment committee. In fact her first taste of an illegal act occurred while she sat on the committee. She knows what happens with documentation. It is called planning ahead.

  2. Ms. Clinton willfully violated the law. She is not a novice but a seasoned political player.

    If she is let off the hook "Lois Lerner style" it will merely be a further reflection of the corruption at the top.

  3. I think its probably all of the above, a putrid and arrogant amalgam of 1) paranoia, 2) Her royal heinous is above the law, and 3) slithery, slick and slimy clintonismo.

    Hillary Toady Jersey McJones has posited she did it to hide her communications from all those evil rightwingers that the federal government is just shot through with *snicker*

    Remember all the FBI records she got her grimy mitts on, pawed through and gleaned all that info on her political enemies? Of course, the Clinton Justice Department exonerated her...

    As I state in my blog post today, I think she survives this. They will claim she never directly accessed those e-mails, that she had flunkies do that for her, they will throw some poor low-level staffers with children to feed under the bus, and the Hildebeast marches on, crushing everything good and holy in her path to the presidency.

    Crushing little people is the Clinton way.

      Those in the field of GOP candidates had better get a grip on the reason that Trump has climbed in the polls.

      I am not convinced that Jeb Bush can defeat Hillary -- if it comes down to those two being the POTUS candidates on the ballot. Unless, that is, Servergate gains sufficient traction.

    Didn’t you learn anything from the Obama’s pack of lies and inept ways of doing thinhs?

    Hillary Clinton's email troubles began when her private address was exposed by a Romanian hacker. Now the resulting scandal threatens to torpedo her presidential ambitions.
    When she is in jail, wearing a Jumpsuit instead of a Pantsuit will you still be defending her?

      Did you notice that one portion of that article indicated how scripted Hillary was in Iowa? She read from a teleprompter. Has she always done that?

    2. I also noticed this in the article:

      Clinton insisted, “I never sent classified material on my email and I never received any that was marked classified. So I’m going to let whatever this inquiry is go forward and we’ll await the outcome of it.”

      She was pressed on whether the issue was becoming an important voter concern.

      “It is never raised in my town halls,” Clinton said. “It is never raised in my other meetings with people.”


      She's got her story, and she's sticking to it.

      Perseverating.

    3. Heck, now, AOW...she's not prone to teleprompters....maybe she's afraid to go off message and into an area she can't get herself out of?

      Imagine NOBODY asking about this issue at her Democrat town halls? That says a lot, too, doesn't it...about sycophants.

    4. Z,
      Remember that she is an attorney and well knows that she dare not go off script. She's also no spring chicken.

      Her bragging about those deletions looks very bad, and even those who support Hillary should be able to see that. The problem is that she has all those bucks in her war chest; it may be too late to stop her from being the Dem candidate for 2016.

    5. that's a good point; If she suddenly does NOT run, does she give the $$ to the DNC? To pass on to Biden or....whoever?

    1. The only possible, legitimate explanation would be that an underling with a secure laptop, handled literally all of her classified correspondence.

      I find that highly implausible however.

      Delete
    2. Does that not violate SCI since the paper copy is uncontrolled?
      You are more current than I.

      Delete
    3. Unfortunately again, it all depends. A lackey...I mean...assistant with a secure laptop could easily show Clinton various correspondence and handle responses, but if hard copy e-mail traffic was present, said lackey would likely be an authorized courier. The SecState doesn't travel without secure comms and disposal means...and if in Foggy Bottom, that's all rendered moot.

      None of this is a defense of Clinton.....she is quite clearly culpable for having classified correspondence on an unsecured server. The measures for protecting SECRET/SIPR traffic is less than TS/SCI/JWICs, so I'll be interested to see the final reporting on how much of what traffic was actually on that server.

      Delete
    4. CI,
      Can she get away with having done that?

      Delete
    5. If in reference to my first paragraph, sure. Directors and other supervisors have their e-mail copied to the account of their executive assistant all the time, in order to handle scheduling, etc. That would be especially true for Cabinet level Secretary's.

      I'm laying out the realistic scenario for her access to classified material without actually using her own classified account. As SecState, she's not actually banging out briefs and memo's on her own keyboard....she 'has a guy' for that.

      I'm interested to learn how classified material became present on her personal, unclassified e-mail server. There are no pipes between the various systems. Somebody had to physically move that material from the SIPR or JWICs domains, to the Platte River Server. Willfully and with aforethought.

      Delete
    6. CI,
      Somebody had to physically move that material...Willfully and with aforethought

      A couple of questions:

      1. Which persons would have had the access, the ability, and the nerve to do that?

      2. Can the FBI IT specialists figure out that much? If they could, would they then have a definitive trail to follow?

      Delete
    7. AOW

      1. Anyone on her staff with the requisite level of clearance has the access; the ability would depend. I won't get into specifics, but there are some means of file transfer that are not authorized for DOD and intel agencies [between systems] and some that are.

      The nerve? Anyone who deemed themselves more important that the law.

      2. Oh yes. Given enough time and access.....the IT forensics can easily trace the trail.

    8. CI,
      Given enough time and access.....the IT forensics can easily trace the trail.

      The access is the issue, IMO.

      Anybody with the nerve to do what we're discussing should also know how to cover tracks very well. Can the tracks be completely covered?

      Delete
    9. Can the tracks be completely covered?

      Unlikely. Group Policy Orders [GPOs] are typically agency-wide IT structures, that are unalterable by a user. These probably vary from agency to agency [I'm not an IT guy], but GPOs can log keystrokes, browser history, cache, logon/logoff, e-mails, downloads, file transfers, etc....

      That slimy little worms of their putrid ilk have been held in high esteem by their "colleagues" is a clear indication of just how low we've sunk as a society since I was a boy.

      Katherine Meyer Graham, married the rightful heir to the WaPo, who committed SUICIDE soon after he realized just what it was he'd wed, and Ben Bradlee, K. Meyer-Graham's head honcho and able partner in infamy, set about to DESTROY this country. They and their compatriots spawned by the Frankfurt School have gleefully made MINCEMEAT of our once solidly structured way of life.

    3. FT,
      The journalistic coup d'etat is NOT a legitimate way to run any country.

      I agree.

      But that ship sailed when Nixon was forced to resign. What ultimately did him in was the erased tape because the erasure appeared to have happened after the subpoena for all tapes was issued. Why didn't he destroy the tapes before they were subpoenaed? I've never been able to figure out that mistake he made.

      It would be poetic justice for Hillary to be destroyed via a journalistic coup d'etat; after all, she was part of the Watergate investigation.

  12. Incompetence or obfuscation?

    State Department officials have uncovered thousands of emails between Philippe Reines, a top Hillary Clinton aide, and members of the media, they previously said did not exist.

    In a court filing last Thursday, the State Department estimated that a recent search turned up more than 81,000 emails from Reines’s official account while at the State Department. And 17,855 potentially fall within a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by Gawker earlier this year.

    That is a reversal from 2013, when the State Department said a thorough search turned up no responsive records for Gawker’s request. In 2012, Gawker requested all emails between Reines and reporters from 34 media outlets.

    The State Department did not explain the reversal in the court document, nor did it return a request for comment....

  18. WASHINGTON (AP) — Now that federal investigators have Hillary Rodham Clinton's homebrew email server, they could examine files on her machine that would be more revelatory than the emails themselves.
    Clinton last week handed over to the FBI her private server, which she used to send, receive and store emails during her four years while secretary of state. The bureau is holding the machine in protective custody after the intelligence community's inspector general raised concerns that classified information had traversed the system.

    SEE ALSO Thai authorities focus on suspect seen in CCTV footage at blast site
    Questions about her use of the server have shadowed her campaign for the Democratic presidential nomination. Clinton again this weekend repeated a carefully constructed defense of her actions, in that she did not send or receive emails marked classified at the time.
    But her emails show some messages she wrote were censored by the State Department for national security reasons before they were publicly released. The government blacked out those messages under a provision of the Freedom of Information Act intended to protect material that had been deemed and properly classified for purposes of national defense or foreign policy.

    Liar, liar your ugly ass pants suit is on fire !
    And the Democrats REALLY want America to embrace a woman with this lack of character as our next national leader REALLY? Are they Kidding? Please get her out of this country and get her in prison, where she belongs!
    Is this what we want to teach our kids when they want to “Grow Up to be President”?
    If you Libs elect this vile, lying woman and you deserve everything you get.

You're all willing to vote the same garbage in to office with our country dying. Absolutely freaking amazing.. Ronald Reagan was also a democrat at one point.. No, Trump is no Reagan but he's bringing back American exceptionalism and giving the base someone to cheer on. He is surrounding himself with the best of the best , ie enter Jeff Sessions, and that shows true leadership.. Lastly, he isn't beholden or afraid of anyone nor will he take any shit from them. I was a Ted Cruz supporter up until The Donald laid out his Immigration plan, consulting with Sessions. Ted Cruz like all the other bought and paid for politicians, still supports H-1B Visas which is nothing more than high tech jobs being turned over to third world illegals..

  21. How about another look at Hillary's number one assistant, Humer Aberdine the Musslim ,
    They got Al Capone for tax evasion, and they may get Huma Abedin for “violating rules regarding vacation and sick leave” and for the “possible exchange of unsecured, classified data.” To be sure, these are serious charges, and the available evidence makes it abundantly clear that there is ample warrant to investigate and perhaps even charge Abedin. However, it is a sign of a serious problem with today’s political culture that even more serious allegations regarding Abedin have never been investigated, and almost certainly never will be.

    Huma Abedin’s Muslim Brotherhood connections have been fully exposed by Andrew McCarthy and bruited about for years. The facts are quite public, albeit largely ignored: Abedin’s parents are both members of the Muslim Brotherhood, but her links to the organization are not just familial. Abedin was for twelve years the assistant editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA), which was founded by Abdullah Omar Naseef, a Muslim Brotherhood operative and al-Qaeda financier. Naseef and Abedin both appeared on the JMMA’s masthead from 1996 to 2003.

    1. AOW, a liberal on CNN the other day actually added her being a devoted grandmother to his list of Hillary's accomplishments.......I guess you have to go there when everything else she's touched hasn't turned out too well.

    1. One paragraph from the above link:

      "She has always been awkward and uninspiring on the stump," said one senior Democratic consultant granted anonymity to candidly assess Clinton's candidacy. "Hillary has Bill’s baggage and now her own as secretary of state -- without Bill’s personality, eloquence or warmth."

  27. Thank you Daily Mail for doing the work that the Department of Justice should have been doing!
    And to add fuel to this fire, the FBI seizes Hillary’s emails after finding she had two messages classified as 'above “TOP SECRET” on her private server! I guess that her daughter’s Wedding was “TOP SECRET”! Nah! Couldn't be.... :)

      Why are the Clintons so immune from the laws that everyone else must follow? Other than the reason you mentioned, that is.

  32. I wonder if Hillary's supporters are so uninformed that they don't understand the seriousness of the matter.
    That they really think that "wiping the server" is done with windex?

    3. CNN's Democrat consultant today said "But those questions are not right...this was a FIRST LADY and SENATOR" to the point where the Republican cons. had to ask "So she can't be asked tough questions?"

    4. Z,
      Since WHEN are candidates for POTUS NOT asked tough questions?

      Do these Dems know just how STUPID they sound when they say something like "But those questions are not right...this was a FIRST LADY and SENATOR"?

    5. Oh I think we understand, Ed.
      The reaction to the scandal has been pretty negative.
      A lot of the support would erode if it didn't look like a bunch of TPers trying to keep Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi alive.

      As for being uninformed , is that your best game?

    6. "Windex"...just another way for Hillary to deflect and laugh at it, causing her sycophants to guffaw as well......
      It can only be that followers don't understand the nature of classified information .... believe me, I'm seeing some on CNN and even MSNBC just beginning to say things like "Well, there IS something that should be looked at here.."
      Well, Eureka.

    7. Duck,
      A lot of the support would erode if it didn't look like a bunch of TPers trying to keep Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi alive.

      The support is going to evaporate regardless of the Benghazi matter.

      If emails about the Benghazi movie lie are retrieved, TPers are going to be vindicated.

      Furthermore, it strains all credibility to believe that there were no emails about Benghazi ever generated by Secretary of State of Hillary Clinton. If there really are no Benghazi emails of any type ever generated by Hillary Clinton, what was she doing all those hours while the ambassador was being tortured?

      Ultimately, it doesn't matter whether or not Benghazi is the matter with regard to Servergate. There are so many other matters.

    8. Z,

      WOOT!

      Mr. AOW and I just got back from Hollywood Casino at Charles Town; I had my iPad with me but, of course, didn't keep up with a lot of news for our one night and two days out of town. Servergate has really heated up, hasn't it?

  34. Anything can happen in regard to Hillary, the election is a long way off. And people have short memories . Hillary has a way about her that can change public opinion in a flash. In case you don't remember,
    I will reach back into history and give you Richard Nixon. Remember him? And remember the nickname he was given? "Tricky Dicky?" I also remember people asking "Would you buy a used car from this man?" I don't know if the polls measured negativity at that time, so I don't know how high his negativity numbers were, but I do remember his amazing come-back after his humiliating loss to JFK.
    Well the Cinton's are a lot smarter and much more liked than Nixon.
    So let's just wait and see.
