“Judge tells State Dept. to find more staffers to process Clinton emails

A federal judge urged the State Department to get more people on the case reviewing and releasing the emails of former Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton and her top aides, saying Tuesday that all sides should be eager to get the matter behind them.

Judge Emmet G. Sullivan also rejected the State Department’s timeline for searching the aides’ emails and insisted the government have them all put in an electronic system by the end of this week, and do an initial search to see which ones are related to the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks next week.”

“Ms. Shapiro rejected that, saying they were caught unaware by the new emails Ms. Mills and Ms. Abedin turned over, more than two years after they left the State Department.

The State Department says it has the equivalent of about 63 full-time employees working on the thousands of open-records requests the department gets each year, and those staffers are being pushed to meet tight deadlines, including those imposed by more than a dozen judges now involved in some Clinton email-related cases.”

“In the case of Citizens United, the State Department had asked for at least until December to search the files of Ms. Abedin and Ms. Mills, but Judge Sullivan rejected that.

Instead he gave the department until the end of this week to have all of their emails put in a searchable database within the department, and gave them until next week to perform an initial search by keyword to determine the universe of documents that might be responsive to Citizens United’s request for information.”

From The Washington Times September 19, 2015.

“Hillary Clinton’s aides relinquish more than 100,000 pages of emails
State Dept. says it won’t release them all, but will check them when requested

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s top aides have belatedly turned over more than 100,000 pages of emails they had kept on personal email accounts, or accounts tied to Mrs. Clinton’s server, the government told a federal judge late Friday.

Huma Abedin turned over an estimated 23,000 pages of emails, Philippe Reines gave back 70,000 pages of messages and Cheryl Mills returned somewhere in the neighborhood of 11,870 pages, the Obama administration told Judge Rudolph Contreras in a court filing.

And unlike Mrs. Clinton’s emails, the State Department does not have plans to post online all of those three aides’ messages, instead deciding to release only select messages that are requested through particular open-records demands.”

“Those messages have effectively been shielded from public scrutiny for years, in defiance of federal policies that discourage use of personal email accounts and insist that when they are used, all government-related business be forwarded to an official account for record-keeping.

Mrs. Clinton returned about 32,000 messages to the government in December. Ms. Mills didn’t return her last batch of messages until Aug. 12, and Ms. Abedin was even later, taking until Sept. 1 — or after the deadline the State Department had agreed to — to finally give back all of her government business messages.”

“Hillary Clinton Emails Have A FIVE-Month Gap

Five months worth of messages are missing from the emails former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton returned to the government, according to documents newly obtained by the watchdog group Judicial Watch.

“A five month email gap,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said at the non-profit group’s inaugural Leadership Summit Monday. “I want an explanation about that.”

Some of the gaps were as long as a month or more, Fitton said.

Clinton submitted a statement to a federal court Aug. 10 under the penalty of perjury that she submitted all of the required emails.

“These emails raise questions whether Clinton told the truth last month,” Fitton said.

Also, Department of State rules show that presidential appointees departing the department may not take federal records with them as they leave, according to Fitton.

Clinton claimed the emails she didn’t turn over were of a personal matter.

“It’s malarky that the emails Clinton withheld were of a personal nature,” Fitton said. He said her personal emails were “intertwined and indistinguishable” from work-related emails and federal records.”

“Largest Batch to Date of Hillary Clinton Emails Released by State Department”

“The largest batch of Mrs. Clinton’s emails to date—some 7,000 pages—was released by the State Department Monday night, offering a glimpse into her small circle of advisers and gatekeepers at the State Department.

The department has now deemed about 125 emails in the latest release classified. The classified material appears in redacted form, occasionally in emails discussing internal operations and personnel.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner said that all the emails weren’t classified when sent but have since been retroactively made classified.”

“The latest set of emails is the fourth release of documents from Mrs. Clinton’s time in office from 2009 until 2013. Previously, the State Department released records pertaining to the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, as well as thousands of pages of emails on a range of personal and professional topics.

The release of Mrs. Clinton’s records has been delayed by a controversy about the presence of classified information on her server—with multiple government agencies seemingly at odds about what should be considered classified.

Two inspectors general concluded that Mrs. Clinton’s inbox contained material that was classified when it was sent. The Clinton campaign and the State Department acknowledge that much of the material has been retroactively classified but contend that Mrs. Clinton didn’t send or receive anything with classification markings.

Many of the most sensitive and controversial of her emails are being reviewed as part of a multiagency process. State Department officials have noted that such referrals and consultations with other agencies don’t mean the emails ultimately will be deemed classified.

More than 60 emails containing redacted classified information have been released so far—with additional examples of classification expected in the future.

Separately, another 305 emails have been flagged for further review by the five intelligence agencies clearing Mrs. Clinton’s emails for public release.”

From the Boston Herald August 30, 2015.

“Hillary Clinton has become Richard Nixon.

Consider the top three words voters used to describe her in a new poll this week: “Liar … dishonest … untrustworthy.” Also in the top 12: “crook … untruthful … criminal … deceitful.”

Crook — as in “I am not a crook,” a quintessential Nixon quote. Even the positive words that respondents used to describe Hillary were the same words that probably would have turned up in a survey about Tricky Dick circa 1974: “experience … strong … smart.”

All this comes out of the new Quinnipiac poll, which showed Donald Trump soaring on the Republican side and Hillary crashing among her fellow Democrats, even though the sixth most popular word used to describe her is “Bill.”

But the most interesting question was the open-ended one at the end: “What is the first word that comes to mind when you think of (fill in the blank)?”

Quinnipiac asked the question only of Hillary, Donald Trump and Juan Ellis Bush.”

“The day the poll came out I asked my listeners to call in with their own one-word descriptions of the candidates. On Hillary, I never realized how many pejoratives there are to describe a real-life Nurse Ratched, and I’m not even talking about the obvious ones like “cankles” “white-trash” and “wide-load.”

How about harridan, shrew, harpy, termagant and virago, just for starters?

Somebody texted me with another synonym for Hillary: crone. Seemed a bit off, so I looked it up. A crone is an old woman who is ugly and thin.

In other words, the texter was half right.”

From Fox News August 28, 2015.

“Source: FBI ‘A-team’ leading ‘serious’ Clinton server probe, focusing on defense info”

“An FBI “A-team” is leading the “extremely serious” investigation into Hillary Clinton’s server and the focus includes a provision of the law pertaining to “gathering, transmitting or losing defense information,” an intelligence source told Fox News.

The section of the Espionage Act is known as 18 US Code 793.

A separate source, who also was not authorized to speak on the record, said the FBI will further determine whether Clinton should have known, based on the quality and detail of the material, that emails passing through her server contained classified information regardless of the markings. The campaign’s standard defense and that of Clinton is that she “never sent nor received any email that was marked classified” at the time.

It is not clear how the FBI team’s findings will impact the probe itself. But the details offer a window into what investigators are looking for — as the Clinton campaign itself downplays the controversy.

The FBI offered no comment.

A leading national security attorney, who recently defended former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling in a leak investigation, told Fox News that violating the Espionage Act provision in question is a felony and pointed to a particular sub-section.

“Under [sub-section] F, the documents relate to the national defense, meaning very closely held information,” attorney Edward MacMahon Jr. explained. “Somebody in the government, with a clearance and need to know, then delivered the information to someone not entitled to receive it, or otherwise moved it from where it was supposed to be lawfully held.”

Additional federal regulations, reviewed by Fox News, also bring fresh scrutiny to Clinton’s defense.

The Code of Federal Regulations, or “CFR,” states: “Any person who has knowledge that classified information has been or may have been lost, possibly compromised or disclosed to an unauthorized person(s) shall immediately report the circumstances to an official designated for this purpose.”

A government legal source confirmed the regulations apply to all government employees holding a clearance, and the rules do not make the “send” or “receive” distinction.

Rather, all clearances holders have an affirmative obligation to report the possible compromise of classified information or use of unsecured data systems.

Current and former intelligence officers say the application of these federal regulations is very straightforward.

“Regardless of whether Mrs. Clinton sent or received this information, the obligations under the law are that she had to report any questions concerning this material being classified,” said Chris Farrell, a former Army counterintelligence officer who is now an investigator with Judicial Watch. “There is no wiggle room. There is no ability to go around it and say I passively received something — that’s not an excuse.””

From the NY Post August 23, 2015.

“Hillary’s e-mail defense is ‘total BS’: former State Dept. officials”

“Former State Department security officials don’t buy Hillary Clinton’s latest alibi that she couldn’t tell that government e-mails — which she improperly, if not illegally, kept for several years on an unsecured home server — contained top-secret information because they lacked official markings and weren’t classified until later.

Such messages contain sensitive “keywords” distinguishing them from unclassified information, even if the material didn’t bear a classified heading as she claims.

The secretary would have known better, the department ­officials say, because she was trained to understand the difference when she was “read in” on procedures to ID and handle classified information by diplomatic-security officials in 2009.
Clinton also went through a so-called “read-off” when she left ­office in 2013. In that debriefing, security officials reminded her of her duty to return all classified documents, including ones in which the classification status is “uncertain,” which would have included the e-mails stored on her private server — which she only this month turned over to authorities. The read-off would have included her signing a nondisclosure agreement.

“Once she resigned as secretary, she needed to return classified documents and other government-owned documents, which in this case would have included the server,” veteran Diplomatic Security Service Special Agent Raymond Fournier said.”

““I did not receive any material marked or designated classified, which is the way you know whether something is [classified],” she said last week, revising an earlier claim that “there is no classified material.”

“That’s total BS,” said retired Army Col. Larry Mrozinski, who served almost four years as a ­senior military adviser and security manager in the State Department under both Clinton and Condoleezza Rice.

He says Clinton easily would have ID’d the material as classified based on “keywords and phrases” and the fact that the information came from foreign sources.

“TS/SCI is very serious and specific information that jumps out at you and screams ‘classified,’ ” Mrozinski said. “The sources [of the information] also drive and signal sensitivity.””

““She’s in big, big trouble,” Fournier agreed.”
