We are going to take a trip back in time again to get documented facts, being disputed in our present day. President Trump has just made the claim that China hacked Clinton’s emails; however, everyone including the FBI is saying that is not true.
Hillary Clinton admitted herself that she’d used an unsecured private email server to handle classified emails while Secretary of State. Two years after the FBI exonerated her, we finally learned the truth. China apparently had unfettered access to all her emails, including many that were highly classified.
We remember the horrible truth that she leaked names of secret agents working in the field, and some said these agents were put in danger – some even losing their lives. There are some things one never forgets, and I will never forget that.
According to the DAILY CALLER, one news site that does not miss a beat, a Chinese-owned company gained access to Clinton’s unsecured private server, and embedded code that then sent them copies of every email she sent. Further the FBI knew about this, even as then FBI Director Comey signed her GET-OUT-OF-JAIL-FREE excuse. Is it not amazing how well criminals work together?
Another little tidbit of information comes to us from the Senate Homeland Security and Government Affairs Committee who found evidence of attempted intrusions into Clinton’s server in 2013 and 2014, according to a letter Chairman Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) sent to a Florida-based security firm tasked with protecting the hardware.
The contractor, SECNAP Network Security, identified the attacks, but according to internal emails cited and briefly quoted in the Johnson letter, Clinton’s sever may have lacked a threat-detection program for three months, Johnson says.
According to Johnson, Clinton’s representatives purchased SECNAP’s threat monitoring device in June of 2013 but does not appear to have been activated until October 2013. A Clinton representative seemed to be aware of the issue, according to an email quoted in the letter:
“We really really need to do this,” the internal Aug. 19, 2013 email reads. “We are left in a bad state… We want to add in this extra security. We are paying for it and no[t] using the security.”
Shocking? No, not at all. We all know what Clinton and her “camp” are capable of, and it certainly is not love of Country or love of truth.
For instance, when asked in a CNN interview months ago whether attackers from Russia or China hacked into her private account, Clinton replied: “There’s no evidence of that.”
In 2011, after Google revealed a wave of hacking attacks against accounts belonging to senior U.S. officials and human rights activists, Clinton’s State Department warned employees to avoid using personal email accounts for official business. However, she continued to exclusively use a private account and server for her work.
Clinton has said the practice was permitted by State Department rules and is consistent with similar practices by past secretaries.
Something I have always found strange is that Clinton’s sidekick, Huma Abedin, is the one who encouraged Clinton to set up a private email server in her own home. Why would she do that?
And the fact must be accepted that the FBI’s “investigation” into Clinton’s criminally negligent handling of classified information was nothing more than a whitewash.
It’s seems increasingly clear that the FBI had planned to exonerate Clinton all along, even if it meant burying the most damning evidence they came across.
This is a part of Comey’s original draft in his Clinton email investigation –
Comey’s original draft said it was “reasonably likely” that a foreign government accessed Clinton’s emails. The final draft said only that it was “possible” and that there was no evidence that it had happened.
Enter shamed Agent Peter Strzok – he was also the FBI official who sat on the bombshell discovery in late September 2016 that hundreds of thousands of Clinton emails wound up on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s laptop.
(By the way, I bet Huma and Anthony are doing fine, just like Clinton is). I need to quickly look int that.
WOW! Here is the latest news on Anthony Weiner – www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/fbi-failed-to-review-hundreds-of-thousands-of-emails-on-anthony-weiners-laptop-report
QUOTE – Despite claims from former FBI director James Comey to the opposite, hundreds of thousands of former-Rep. Anthony Weiner’s correspondences were reportedly not examined for potentially classified information as part of the agency’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server.
Only 3,077 of the nearly 700,000 emails discovered on a laptop Weiner shared with wife and top Clinton staffer Huma Abedin were reviewed, according to a report from Real Clear Investigations. The examination was done during a marathon 12-hour session the day before Comey said Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee, should not be recommended for criminal charges.
President Trump had tweeted about the findings, threatening to interject himself into an investigation into corruption at the FBI. “Big story out that the FBI ignored tens of thousands of Crooked Hillary Emails, many of which are REALLY BAD. Also gave false election info. I feel sure that we will soon be getting to the bottom of all of this corruption. At some point I may have to get involved!,” he posted.
Top Clinton allies say Comey’s controversial decision to reopen the email investigation weeks before the election following the discovery of Weiner’s laptop was a key reason why Trump won in a surprise victory.
The search that was completed uncovered additional instances of Clinton transmitting and receiving classified information via her private, unauthorized email account, according to one U.S. law enforcement official.
Weiner, who last year was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison for sending lewd messages to a minor, did not have security clearance but reportedly received classified information on his personal email account on two occasions!!!!!!!.
According to Real Clear Investigations, this “mother lode” of Clinton emails included classified emails the FBI hadn’t seen before.
But FBI officials were too busy investigating the bogus Trump/Russia dossier to bother with this news!!!!
And, they only acted on the discovery when they thought news about the Weiner laptop emails might leak, Real Clear Investigation’s Paul Sperry reports.
What’s more, the FBI examined only a fraction of those emails, despite Comey’s repeated assurances that investigators had reviewed them all, Sperry says.
The “investigation” into Clinton’s criminally negligent handling of classified information was nothing more than a whitewash.
Real Clear Investigations has a blockbuster report focused on the investigation of Anthony Weiner’s laptop and the emails found on it just prior to the 2016 election. Contrary to what was claimed by then-Director James Comey in public, RCI found no real effort was made to look at nearly 700,000 emails found on the laptop. In all, only a few thousand were examined and when more classified information was found in those, it was never referred back to the intelligence community for a damage assessment as required by law.
THE COMEY STORY –
When then-FBI Director James Comey announced he was closing the Hillary Clinton email investigation for a second time just days before the 2016 election, he certified to Congress that his agency had “reviewed all of the communications” discovered on a personal laptop used by Clinton’s closest aide, Huma Abedin, and her husband, Anthony Weiner…
Comey later told Congress that “thanks to the wizardry of our technology,” the FBI was able to eliminate the vast majority of messages as “duplicates” of emails they’d previously seen. Tireless agents, he claimed, then worked “night after night after night” to scrutinize the remaining material.
So the basic story was: We looked but there was nothing there. And with that, Hillary was once again cleared. But here’s what really happened:
A technical glitch prevented FBI technicians from accurately comparing the new emails with the old emails. Only 3,077 of the 694,000 emails were directly reviewed for classified or incriminating information. Three FBI officials completed that work in a single 12-hour spurt the day before Comey again cleared Clinton of criminal charges.
“Most of the emails were never examined, even though they made up potentially 10 times the evidence” of what was reviewed in the original year-long case that Comey closed in July 2016, said a law enforcement official with direct knowledge of the investigation.
Yet even the “extremely narrow” search that was finally conducted, after more than a month of delay, uncovered more classified material sent and/or received by Clinton through her unauthorized basement server, the official said. Contradicting Comey’s testimony, this included highly sensitive information dealing with Israel and the U.S.-designated terrorist group Hamas. The former secretary of state, however, was never confronted with the sensitive new information and it was never analyzed for damage to national security…
“There was no real investigation and no real search,” said Michael Biasello, a 27-year veteran of the FBI. “It was all just show — eyewash — to make it look like there was an investigation before the election.”
Why was no one informed that additional classified information was found on the laptop? That would have been a fatal blow to Hillary’s campaign in the final weeks. Of course, we all know how the election turned out even without that revelation, but Hillary has complained bitterly ever since that Comey’s decision to publicly re-open the email investigation in the final weeks cost her the win. And the especially bitter part for her supporters is that the last-minute investigation found nothing at all.
But RCI’s report throws a very different light on all of this. For one thing, the investigation was botched. For two, it did find something. For three, this sham investigation matches with the inexplicable behavior of Hillary fan Peter Strzok who let the laptop matter slide for weeks. Here’s how RCI describes the timeline of non-events:
By Oct. 4, the Weiner case agent had finished processing the laptop, and reported that he found at least 675,000 emails potentially relevant to the Midyear case (in fact, the final count was 694,000). “Based on the number of emails, we could have every email that Huma and Hillary ever sent each other,” the agent remarked to colleagues. It appeared this was the mother lode of missing Clinton emails. But Strzok remained uninterested. “This isn’t a ticking terrorist bomb,” he was quoted as saying in the recently issued inspector general’s report. Besides, he had bigger concerns, such as, “You know, is the government of Russian trying to get somebody elected here in the United States?”
Strzok and headquarters sat on the mountain of evidence for another 26 days. The career New York agent said all he was hearing from Washington was “crickets,” so he pushed the issue to his immediate superiors, fearing he would be “scapegoated” for failing to search the pile of digital evidence. They, in turn, went over Strzok’s head, passing their concerns on to career officials at the National Security Division of the Justice Department, who in turn set off alarm bells at the seventh floor executive suites of the Hoover Building…
Once George Toscas, the highest-ranking Justice Department official directly involved in the Clinton email investigation, found out about the delay, he prodded headquarters to initiate a search and to inform Congress about the discovery.
By Oct. 21, Strzok had gotten the word. “Toscas now aware NY has hrc-huma emails,” he texted McCabe’s counsel, Lisa Page, who responded, “whatever.”
Four days later, Page told Strzok – with whom she was having an affair – about the murmurs she was hearing from brass about having to tell Congress about the new emails. “F them,” Strzok responded, apparently referring to oversight committee leaders on the Hill.
The next day, Oct. 26, the New York agent finally was able to brief Strzok’s team directly about what he had found on the laptop. On Oct. 27, Comey gave the green light to seek a search warrant.
Once the NY agents had forced the issue, Comey and the crew in DC then had to worry whether news of the subpoena would leak to the media, leaving the impression that the FBI was still quietly investigating Hillary contrary to Comey’s public claim the investigation was closed. Comey was convinced that he had a responsibility to inform Congress the investigation wasn’t over. So eventually he sent the letter which Hillary claims cost her the election.
The claim that there existed a pro-Clinton bias at the FBI has always been answered with Comey’s announcement, i.e. Comey cost Clinton the election so how could that be pro-Clinton bias? But the fact that Stzrok ignored the laptop until NY agents went over his head combined with the fact that the subsequent investigation was “eyewash” which overlooked most of the evidence and failed to report findings suggests this was an attempt by biased actors to do the bare minimum to avoid an internal backlash or a damaging leak.
Everyone involved, Comey, Stzrok, etc., probably assumed that once the sham investigation announced Hillary had been cleared, she would go on to win the election. No harm, no foul. Obviously, that’s not how things worked out, but Hillary’s loss doesn’t prove there was no pro-Clinton bias at the FBI, only that there was a limit to what biased actors could get away with.
Journalist Paul Sperry reported: “In an 11/3/16 doc, Strzok created a fake timeline of the Weiner email recovery in order to leave a misleading record for the file, after the fact, for the purpose of CYA & getting everyone in Comey’s inner circle on the same page. (Similar to Rice’s 1/20/17 email to self.)”
FBI agent Peter Strzok manipulated the warrant in secret to search Anthony Weiner’s laptop, and of course, it was done in order to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution.
FBI agent Peter Strzok was the main operative in the Operation Crossfire Hurricane plot to “stop” President Donald Trump. So it comes as no surprise at all that he was assigned to handle the revelation that Anthony Weiner had thousands of Hillary Clinton emails that were classified on his laptop, which were discovered in the course of an NYPD investigation into his sickening sexual interactions with a minor, for which Anthony Weiner is now serving time in prison.
